The storm is 180 miles west southwest of Manzanillo Mexico as of Monday evening, moving at 6 mph. Any tropical storm warnings or watches have been discontinued, however storm-force winds may extend up to 80 miles from the center of the storm.

Over the next few days, Dalila is expected to turn gradually more west with a minor decrease in forward speed. It is still projected that the storm will become a hurricane on Tuesday, July 2.
