Miami (AP) - Hurricane Jimena has weakened to a Category 2 storm as it bears down on Mexico's Baja California peninsula.

According to the National Hurricane Center in Miami, Jimena's maximum sustained winds decreased early Wednesday to near 110 mph. And the hurricane is expected to continue weakening gradually before making landfall.

The change in status comes a day after Hurricane Jimena brushed passed the resort towns at the southern tip of Baja California, lashing them with driving rain and winds.

Jimena is centered about 95 miles west-southwest of La Paz and about 110 miles south-southeast of Cabo San Lazaro.
