Forecasters say Daniel has become a hurricane while moving westward over open waters in the Pacific.
The National Hurricane Center said late Friday that Daniel had maximum sustained winds of 75 mph and was moving westward
at 12 mph. It was located 745 miles southwest of the southern tip of Baja, California.
The center said Daniel was a Category 1 hurricane but posed no threat to land. It could strengthen overnight and into Saturday, but should start weakening over colder waters on Sunday. Daniel becomes the third hurricane of the Eastern North Pacific season.
