Sept 13 (Reuters) - Tropical Storm Ingrid, located about 60 miles (95 km) east of Veracruz, Mexico, is becoming stronger, with maximum sustained winds having increased to nearly 60 miles per hour (95 kph), the U.S. National Hurricane Center said in its latest forecast.
The storm could become a hurricane before it makes landfall late Sunday or early Monday, it said.
The agency issued a hurricane watch from north of Cabo Rojo to La Pesca, Mexico.
A watch is typically issued 48 hours before the anticipated first occurrence of tropical-storm-force winds, conditions that make outside preparations difficult or dangerous. (Reporting by Shruti Chaturvedi in Bangalore; Editing by Eric Walsh)
