Tropical Storm Odile was losing strength after spinning off Mexico's southern Pacific coast and forecasters say it could soon become a remnant low.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Odile's maximum sustained winds decreased to 35 mph (55 kph) Saturday morning. Its center was about 665 miles (1,065 kilometers) southwest of the southern tip of Baja California and moving to the east-southeast at 7 mph (11 kph).

Tropical Storm Edouard remained far out in the eastern Atlantic, and posed no threat to land.

The hurricane center says Edouard, the fifth named tropical storm of the Atlantic hurricane season, had sustained winds of 50 mph (85 kph). It was centered 1,155 miles (1,790 kilometers) east of the northern Leeward Islands and moving northwest at 15 mph (24 kph).
