The National Hurricane Center says Tropical Storm Nate has weakened somewhat as it heads toward expected landfall later today in southern Mexico.

The Miami-based center said at 5 a.m. EDT (0900 GMT) Sunday that Nate was centered 60 miles (95 kilometers) northeast of Veracruz. It said Mexican authorities have replaced a hurricane warning from Tuxpan to Veracruz with a tropical storm warning. Nate has top sustained winds of 60 mph (95 kph) and is moving west at 7 mph (11 kph).

Meanwhile, U.S. forecasters say Tropical Storm Maria had 60-mph (95-kph) winds early Sunday, intensifying slightly while moving northwest at 13 mph (20 kph) on a gradual course away from the northeast Caribbean toward the open Atlantic. Maria's center was 95 miles (150 kilometers) east-northeast of St. Thomas early Sunday.
