MIAMI — Kiko has weakened to a tropical depression over the Pacific, west of Mexico.

The depression's maximum sustained winds early Monday have decreased to near 35 mph (55 kph) with additional weakening expected. The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Kiko is forecast to degenerate into a remnant low later in the day.

Kiko is centered about 410 miles (655 kilometers) west of the southern tip of Mexico's Baja California and is moving north-northwest near 5 mph (7 kph).
