post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the west-northwest near 6 mph

days.

Maximum sustained winds are near 45 mph (75 km/h) with higher gusts.
Some weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours and Xavier is
expected to become a remnant low by Tuesday evening.

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
SURF:  Swells generated by Xavier will continue to affect portions
of the coast of southwestern Mexico this evening and should subside
on Tuesday morning.  These swells are likely to cause life-
threatening surf and rip current conditions.  Please consult
products from your local weather office.
