Erick remains a tropical storm as of Monday, but is expected to weaken as it passes by the southwestern tip of mainland Mexico.
The AccuWeather.com Hurricane Center expects Erick to track northwestward Monday night with its center of strongest winds remaining offshore.
Erick will never make landfall on Mexican soil, but more of its outer rain bands will graze the nation's southwestern tip. Some of the rain will be accompanied by flooding downpours.
Erick is also prolonging the rough surf and rip current danger that was kicked up by once-Hurricane Dalila along the southwestern coast, creating hazards to both residents and vacationers.
Erick will continue to weaken as it tracks to the northwest through Tuesday, grazing the southern tip of Baja California with its outer rain bands in the process. Surf will also build and turn dangerous through Monday as Erick approaches.
