Tropical Storm Sandra Weakens In Pacific

National Hurricane Center

Mexico has cancelled tropical storm warnings as Tropical Storm Sandra is weakening rapidly.

The storm's maximum sustained winds decreased early Saturday to 40 mph (65 kph).

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Sandra is forecast to become a remnant low later Saturday or early Sunday.

Sandra is about 115 miles (180 kms) south of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and is moving north at 2 mph (4 kph).

The storm is still expected to produce 2 to 4 inches of rain in parts of Mexico, and strong winds are expected in Las Islas Marias.
