MEXICO CITY (AP) — Hurricane Marie has weakened to a Category 2 storm, but continues kicking up high swells along Mexico's northern Pacific coast and threatens to raise dangerous waves along the Southern California coast.

The U.S. Hurricane Center in Miami says Marie's maximum sustained winds early Tuesday have decreased to 105 mph (165 kph). Additional weakening is forecast and the storm is expected to lose hurricane status in the next day or so.

Marie is centered about 550 miles (880 kilometers) west-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California and is moving northwest near 14 mph (22 kph).

Swells provoked by the storm are affecting much of Mexico's Pacific coast and the Hurricane Center is warning of dangerous surf and rip current conditions.
