MIAMI (AP) -- A hurricane watch has been issued for parts of the Texas and Mexico coasts as Tropical Storm Dolly enters the Gulf of Mexico.

Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in Miami said Monday that the watch in Texas extends from Brownsville to Port O'Connor. The government of Mexico also issued a hurricane watch from Rio San Fernando northward to the U.S. border.

At 11 a.m. EDT, the center of the storm was about 55 miles north-northeast of Progreso, Mexico. Maximum sustained winds were near 50 mph.

A tropical storm watch is also in effect on the Texas coast from north of Port O'Connor to San Luis Pass and from La Pesca, Mexico, northward to Rio San Fernando.

Dolly is moving toward the west-northwest near 18 mph.
