Tropical Storm Boris on Monday weakened far off Mexico's Pacific coast and isn't a threat to land.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said the storm's maximum sustained wind speeds have fallen to 65 mph after reaching 70 mph, just below hurricane status. It is located hundreds of miles off Mexico's Pacific Coast and is expected to continue to move out to sea.

Farther out in the Pacific, a second tropical storm, Cristina, weakened to a tropical depression on Monday. The storm has maximum sustained winds of 35 mph and isn't expected to threaten land.

Cristina formed just after Boris and is the third tropical storm of the eastern Pacific hurricane season.
