The National Weather Service in Miami says Fabio has maximum sustained winds of 169 kph and is about 925 km south of the southern tip of Mexico's Baja California. Fabio is currently a Category 2 hurricane and is the season's fifth hurricane.

It is moving northwest at 15 kph and is expected to stay on this course.

Fabio is expected to weaken Sunday.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Emilia, farther out in the Pacific, is moving westward and is expected to become a remnant on Sunday.

Emilia had been a major hurricane, with Category 4 status, earlier in the week, but remained far out to sea and posed no threat to land.
