MEXICO CITY (AP) _ A Pacific storm strengthened into a hurricane late Wednesday but it was expected to weaken, the National Hurricane Center said.

Hurricane Ivo, centered about 570 miles south of the Baja California Peninsula, was forecast to head northwest, then take a clockwise turn toward the Baja while weakening, the National Hurricane Center said.

Ivo had sustained winds of about 86 mph late Wednesday.

While the current forecast shows it turning toward land, the Hurricane Center said the forecast past three days was ``highly uncertain.''
