The forecast track of Hurricane Blanca shows it heading for Mexico's Baja Peninsula.

Hurricane Blanca, a Category-4 storm with 130 mph winds, is spinning in the eastern Pacific Ocean. As of 2 p.m. ET Wednesday, it was located 455 miles south of Manzanillo, Mexico, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Blanca is nearly stationary, but will begin moving northwestward Thursday, the Weather Channel said. There is increasing confidence in a track toward southern Baja California, though it is expected to weaken as comes closer to land.

The hurricane would impact the Baja by the weekend.

Blanca is the second major hurricane to form in eastern Pacific this year. A major hurricane is one that's a Category 3, 4 or 5 on the Saffir-Simpson Scale of Hurricane Intensity.

Tropical Storm Andres, which had been a major hurricane a few days ago, decreased to near 70 mph with continued weakening expected. The storm is centered about 995 miles west-southwest of the southern tip of Mexico's Baja California peninsula. It's no threat to land.
