MIAMI >> Hurricane Paul has weakened to a Category 2 storm in the eastern Pacific but is still swirling near Mexico's western coast.
The National Hurricane Center in Miami said late Monday that Paul's maximum sustained winds had decreased to 110 mph and that the storm was centered about 310 miles southwest of the Baja California peninsula's southern tip.
The Mexican government extended its hurricane warning for the west coast northward to Punta Abreojos. The hurricane center said the center of Paul should move inland along the coast by Tuesday night.
