Tara weakened as it moved slowly northward just off the coast. It was expected to remain close to land and slip to a depression by Wednesday evening.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Tara had maximum sustained winds of 45 mph (75 kph) Tuesday morning. It was centered about 30 miles (50 kilometers) south-southwest of Manzanillo while moving north-northwest at 1 mph (2 kph).

A tropical storm warning was in effect from Manzanillo to Cabo Corrientes, south of Puerto Vallarta.

Rains of 5 to 10 inches (13 to 25 centimeters) are possible in parts of Colima, western Jalisco and western Michoacan states.
