Sept. 21 (UPI) -- The National Hurricane Center downgraded Tropical Storm Lorena on Sunday to a depression and then a broad area of low pressure as it moved along the coast of western mainland Mexico.
In its last advisory at 9 a.m. MDT update, the NHC said the center of the post-tropical cyclone was about 65 miles north-northwest of Guaymas, Mexico,. It was moving northward at 9 mph with 30 mph maximum sustained winds. In its 3 a.m. update, Lorena was downgraded to a depression.
The government of Mexico has discontinued the tropical storm warning for western mainland Mexico.
The NHC said the poorly defined center of what is left of Lorena crossed the coast of northwestern Mexico on Sunday morning. The broad area of low pressure was accompanied by a few showers. The NHC says the low is expected to move farther inland and dissipate Sunday night or early Monday.
