The U.S. National Hurricane Center says the storm had maximum sustained winds of 35 mph (55 kph) early Wednesday and was centered about 75 miles (120 kilometers) east-northeast of Durango while moving briskly to the northeast at 25 mph (41 kph).

Forecasters said it can still bring 2 to 4 inches (5 to 10 centimeters) of rain to areas along its path in northern Mexico.

Once a Category 5 hurricane in the Pacific, Willa was at Category 3 force when it hit the coast of Sinaloa state Tuesday evening.
