MIAMI (October 16, 2012)--Hurricane Paul weakened to a Category 2 storm in the eastern Pacific, but was still swirling Tuesday near Mexico's western coast.
The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Paul's maximum sustained winds decreased to 110 miles per hour late Monday.
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.
