Hurricane Barbara to weaken before reaching Gulf of Mexico Thursday

Hurricane Barbara, on the southern coast of Mexico, is expected to cross over land into the Gulf of Mexico by Thursday but will pose little threat, the National Hurricane Center predicts.

A 2 p.m. Wednesday, Barbara a minimal hurricane, moving north-northeast at 9 mph with maximum winds at 75 mph. By early Thursday, the system should weaken significantly and move into the southern Gulf as what forecasters are calling a "remnant low."

Barbara is expected to dissipate within the next day or so, dumping an average of 6-10 inches of rain in eastern Oaxaca and western Chipas, Mexico.
