    Tropical Depression Rina as of 7 a.m. Friday.

    Rina continued to weaken Friday from a tropical storm to a tropical depression as it brought wind and rain to the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami.

    Rina had maximum sustained winds near 35 mph as it moved north-northeast at 6 mph about 55 miles north-northeast of Cancun, Mexico, according to the latest NHC update.

    Rina was expected to weaken even more over the next 48 hours and was expected to begin a southward drift back toward the northwestern Caribbean Sea and remain there. Rina had been a Category 2 hurricane with winds near 110 mph Wednesday but lost much of its intensity early Thursday.

    South Florida remains outside the forecast cone, though a very moist air mass will continue to move towards the area through the weekend, with occasional showers and thunderstorms in the forecast for Saturday.

    All tropical storm warnings were discontinued Friday.
