The former hurricane Norbert heading into Baja California is now a tropical storm with winds down around 50 miles an hour. As of 2 p.m., the National Hurricane Center said that Norbert continues to weaken and is expected to remain just west of Baja for a couple more days, turning into a remnant low pressure zone. "Although Norbert is weakening, tropical moisture will continue to spread northward across northern Mexico and the southwestern United States," the National Weather Service advises. "This could result in heavy rains and life-threatening flash flooding in these area during the next day or two."
Large swells and the rip currents that come with them are expected to continue rolling onto Southern California beaches.
