Andres Downgraded to Tropical Depression
(11:30 EDT) -- Andres has been downgraded from a hurricane -- the first of the Pacific hurricane season -- to a tropical depression. The National Hurricane Center is forecasting that the storm will weaken further as it continues moving west away from Mexico. The storm is expected to dissipate sometime later today or tonight.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased sharply to 35 miles per hour.

Cruise Ship Itinerary Changes

As a precaution, Carnival Cruise Lines altered the itinerary for Carnival Splendor, which was originally scheduled to visit Puerto Vallarta today, Mazatlan on Thursday and Cabo San Lucas on Friday. The ship's new itinerary is as follows: Cabo San Lucas today, Mazatlan on Thursday, day at sea day on Friday and Ensenada on Saturday.

Weather Outlook: Next Affected Ships & Ports

The only other ship in the region is Royal Caribbean's Mariner of the Seas, which is set to visit Mazatlan today and Puerto Vallarta on Friday. Royal Caribbean has not changed the ship's itinerary and is not expected to do so.

This will be our last report on Andres.
