MIAMI >> Tropical Storm Erick is weakening further as it moves off the Pacific coast of Mexico.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami says the storm was centered Sunday about 215 miles southeast of the southern tip of Baja California. Erick has top sustained winds of about 60 mph and is moving northwest at 10 mph.

Mexican authorities say a tropical storm warning is in effect from Southern Baja California from Santa Fe to La Paz. Tropical storm conditions are expected there by early Monday.

Rainfall totaling 2 to 4 inches is possible in some areas.

Forecasters also say swells that can cause rip current conditions are likely.
