October 10, 2008|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Hurricane Norbert weakened to a Category 1 storm as it headed toward Mexico's southern Baja California peninsula but was still expected to be a hurricane when it hits land over the weekend.

Mexico issued a hurricane watch for the southern half of the peninsula, including Cabo San Lucas.

Norbert's winds have decreased to 90 mph, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami. Forecasters said it remains dangerous.

Tropical Storm Odile, meanwhile, grew a little stronger, with maximum sustained winds near 50 mph. It was about 135 miles southeast of Puerto Angel in Oaxaca.
