Tropical Storm Xavier is slowly moving away from the west coast of Mexico, but continues to produce gusty winds and waves of heavy rain. The storm is located 130 miles west-southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico, moving west-northwest at only 3 mph. Maximum sustained winds are near 60 mph with gusts to 70 mph. A Tropical Storm Warning remains in effect from Punta San Telmo to Playa Perula. As Xavier moves westward, the cyclone will encounter significantly drier air over the next few days. The storm is expected to weaken and become a non-tropical low pressure center later this week. Xavier is the first "X" named storm in 26 years, making this the busiest season in the eastern Pacific since 1992. On average, 15 named storms form each year, with 22 so far this year.
