MIAMI — Tropical Storm Dalila (dah-LY-lah) is weakening fast as it drifts westward in the Pacific away from Mexico's coast.

Dalila's maximum sustained winds late Wednesday were 60 mph (97 kph).

Dalila is centered about 285 miles (459 kilometers) west-southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico, and was moving westward at 5 mph (8 kph).

Weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami says swells generated by Dalila affected parts of Mexico's southwestern coast.
