Adrian weakens to a tropical depression in Pacific

Forecasters say Adrian has weakened to a tropical depression in the open Pacific and the once-powerful storm is expected to continue to lose strength.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Sunday the storm is moving over colder water and will dissipate within the next few days.

Adrian has top sustained winds of about 35 mph (56 kph).

Adrian was the 2011 season's first hurricane. The storm was a Category 4 with winds of 140 mph (225 kph) a couple of days ago. Adrian formed off the Mexican coast and never threatened to make landfall.
