Jova weakens to tropical storm over Mexico

[Updated 11:24 a.m. ET] Jova has weakened into a tropical storm over Mexico, the National Hurricane Center said Wednesday.

[Posted 2:09 a.m. ET] Hurricane Jova made landfall on the Pacific coast of Mexico late Tuesday, the National Hurricane Center reported.

The Category 2 storm was packing 100 mph winds as it came ashore in the Mexican state of Jalisco.

Jova, which has been steadily weakening, is expected to lose much of its punch over western Mexico on Wednesday and become a tropical storm.

The storm's center was about 65 miles west-northwest of the resort town of Manzanillo at 2 a.m. ET Wednesday, according to the National Hurricane Center. It was moving north-northeast at 8 mph.
