MEXICO CITY (AP) — Tropical Storm Daniel weakened to a tropical depression Monday, and forecasters said it was likely to dissipate by Tuesday while remaining far off Mexico's western coast.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Daniel had maximum sustained winds of 35 mph (55 kph) Monday night. It was centered about 615 miles (985 kilometers) west-southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula and was moving northwest at 9 mph (15 kph).

The center said Daniel would continue to weaken as it moved farther out to sea and was expected to degenerate into a remnant low soon.
