Tropical Storm Douglas weakened to a depression off Mexico’s coast on Thursday and was forecast to die at sea.

After forming in the Pacific on Wednesday, Douglas was located about 195 miles south of Cabo San Lucas, on the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula.

Douglas had winds of about 35 mph, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center.

The storm was moving northwest at 7 mph and was expected to turn west and die out at sea by Friday after hitting cooler waters, forecasters said.

Meanwhile, former hurricane Boris weakened to a tropical storm far out in the Pacific and was expected to become a remnant in a day.

Tropical Storm Cristina dissipated without reaching land at the end of June.

The first tropical storm of the eastern Pacific season, Alma, hit Nicaragua’s northwest corner.
