Mexico City – Hurricane Fabio began to weaken Wednesday far off Mexico’s Pacific Coast as it moved farther out to sea, posing no threat to land.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said the storm had sustained winds of 100 mph. It was centered about 790 miles west-southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula and was moving west-northwest at 15 mph.

The forecasters said the storm was likely to weaken back to tropical storm force on Thursday and to become a remnant low-pressure system by the weekend.

At one point, forecasters had thought Fabio might become a major hurricane.
