Norbert can be seen churning up the Pacific in this satellite image
A hurricane set to buffet Mexico's Pacific coast this weekend has been downgraded to a Category One but remains dangerous, meteorologists say.
Hurricane Norbert's maximum winds have weakened to 150km/h (90mph), the US National Hurricane Center reports.
The storm is expected to weaken further as it veers towards Mexico's Baja California peninsula and the mainland over the next two days.
Mexican farmers are rushing to finish field work before the rains sweep in.
Norbert was 600km (370 miles) south-west of Baja California at 2100 GMT on Thursday, moving north-west at 7km/h.
In the port town of Los Cabos, the mayor has urged residents in low-lying areas to evacuate, and the arrival dates of two cruise ships have been pushed back.
Hoteliers are also securing their property in Baja California, one of the country's most popular tourist destinations.
Elsewhere, Tropical Storm Odile, the 15th named storm in the Eastern Pacific's hurricane season, has formed with maximum sustained winds of nearly 65km/h.
It is centred about 505km (315 miles) south-east of Puerto Angel, Mexico, but is expected to remain offshore as it moves north-west.
Tropical Storm Marco, which hit Mexico's other (Gulf) coast late on Tuesday, has weakened to a tropical depression.
While it caused flooding in the state of Veracruz, Marco caused no major damage to the country's oil and gas installations.
