MIAMI (AP) -- Hurricane Jimena has weakened to a Category 2 storm
as it bears down on Mexico's Baja California peninsula.

According to the National Hurricane Center in Miami, Jimena's
maximum sustained winds decreased early Wednesday to near 110 mph (175 kph). And the hurricane is expected to continue weakening
gradually before making landfall.

The change in status comes a day after Hurricane Jimena brushed
passed the resort towns at the southern tip of the Baja California,
lashing them with driving rain and winds.

Jimena is centered about 95 miles (155 kilometers) west-southwest of La Paz and about 110 miles (175 kilometers) south-southeast of Cabo San Lazaro.
