Tropical Storm Dora weakening off Mexico

Forecasters say Tropical Storm Dora has weakened on its trek over cold Pacific waters off Mexico, and it will likely become a tropical depression later in the day.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Sunday that Dora's top sustained winds were 40 mph (65 kph).

Dora was moving northwest at 9 mph (15 kph) off the west coast of southern Baja, Calif. It was expected to slow down as it weakened.

Dora's center was about 150 miles (241 kilometers) southwest of Cabo San Lazaro, Mexico.
