Hurricane Rosa, headed for Baja California, was rapidly weakening in the Pacific Ocean and was forecast to further wane in the coming days, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said on Saturday.

Later next week, Hurricane Rosa is expected to weaken into a tropical depression as it passes over California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado.

High surf up to 10 feet and rip currents will begin along southern California coast Sunday, the hurricane center said. Harvey, which made landfall north of Corpus Christi late Friday evening, is expected to dump upwards to 40 inches of rain in Texas over the next couple of days.

Hurricane Rosa is expected to bring us rain as well as some potential flash flooding.

"Coastal areas are expected to received 0.25" to 0.50" of rain Tuesday into Wednesday, said Brandt Maxwell, a weather service forecaster.
