MEXICO CITY — Hurricane Fabio steadily weakened Wednesday far off Mexico's Pacific Coast as it moved farther out to sea, posing no threat to land.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said the storm had sustained winds of 90 mph (150 kph) at midafternoon. It was centered about 830 miles (1,340 kilometers) west-southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula and was moving west-northwest at 15 mph (24 kph).

Forecasters said the storm was expected to continue weakening, falling back to tropical storm force Thursday and becoming a remnant low-pressure system by the weekend.

At one point, forecasters had thought Fabio might become a major hurricane.
