Tropical storm warning issued in Baja California

A tropical storm warning has been issued for the southern portion of Mexico's Baja California peninsula as Tropical Storm Rick approaches. In addition, a tropical storm watch was issued early Tuesday for the western coast of mainland Mexico from El Roblito northward through Altata.

Rick, which had been an extremely dangerous Category 5 hurricane at one point, is weakening in the Pacific and its maximum sustained winds have decreased to 65 mph (100 kph). The storm is centered about 265 miles (425 kilometers) south-southwest of Cabo San Lucas and is moving north-northeast near 6 mph (9 kph).
