Mexico City: Andres, the first hurricane of the season in the Pacific, tracked far from Mexico`s west coast Sunday, packing 169 kilometer (105 mile) an hour winds but posing little threat to land, forecasters said.

Mexican weather authorities warned of the possibility of "intense to very strong" rains in the western states of Guerrero, Michoacan, Jalisco, Colima and Nayarit.

But the Category Two storm, while showing no sign of losing strength for now, was moving away from the Mexican coast at a speed of 13 kilometers (eight miles) per hour.

It was last reported 1,190 kilometers (740 miles) southwest of Cabo San Luca, a resort city in Mexico`s Baja California.

Mexico`s National Meteorological Service said it expects Andres to weaken to a tropical storm by Tuesday.
