WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Patricia, one of the strongest ever hurricanes, has weakened further into a remnant low pressure area over northeastern Mexico, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said on Saturday.

It said in its latest advisory that the storm was about 45 miles (70 km) southwest of the Mexican city of Monterrey with maximum sustained winds of 30 mph (45 kph).

The storm's remnants are expected to reach Texas later on Saturday or Sunday.
