.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that there have been a few whispys pass over the Baja peninsula last night and there will mostly likely be a few more of these high bands of whispys passing over today.
There is a band just west of the cape this morning that will pass over later this morning. Again they look like just high whispys.
Looking south: there is still that area of heavy thunderbumper activity SW of the cape that continues to send bands of clouds over most of the Riviera. Water vapor imagery is showing numerous cells with dark bottoms so isolated showers are possible.
Looking at the Tehuantepec: The Gale advisories have been dropped and the forecast is for ballpark 20 knot winds to persist through the 3-day forecast period.
Taking a quick look our into the Eastern Pacific Basin it looks like the basin has about 40% high cirrus all the way out to Hawaii this morning.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image where a cold front is approaching Seattle. Heavy rain is forecast to precede the front mostly along the coast and in the coastal mountains from a bit north of the Golden gate to Vancouver tomorrow.
Then High pressure will fill in in the wake of the front and that looks like all of the wetness the west will see this week.
Southern California will see some cloudiness from the system to the north starting today. Fog will show up along the coast and into the interior valleys today and tomorrow then clear skies and a few degrees for warming the rest of the week.
Looking now over to the southwest where as I mentioned there is a weak system passing through Arizona today with another light system with the tail end brushing southern California on Thursday. Both these systems will bring some cloudiness and cooler temperatures compared to yesterday. High pressure will slowly build over the southwest into early next week.
That is what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like another day just like yesterday with light to very moderate winds from one end of the Sea to the other.
The Riviera reporting stations did not report any rain accumulations but looking at these clouds I’d certainly expect to hear some reports of at least sprinkles today.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea is and has been free of any cloudiness for the past 24 hours.
Looking to the south I can see that the ITCZ/monsoon trough is quite active this morning between around 110 and 130. Lot of thunderbumper activity and clouds moving off the zone and moving to the NE toward the Mexican Riviera. The convection is also being fueled by moisture being shot of to the Gulf of Tehuantepec by Gale force winds this morning.
There is a lot more moisture in these bands of clouds and I’d expect to see reports of at least some light rain from Puerto Vallarta to Acapulco in the next 12 hours. Off shore there are several hot cells that are quite capable of producing showers.
After making landfall these clouds continue across Mexico, the Gulf of Mexico and end up along the Gulf coast of Louisiana. Very similar to the Pineapple Express except this morning’s Jet Stream Analysis is not showing any jet in the area.
It looks like these conditions will be with us for at least a couple more days.
The winds in the Gulf of Tehuantepec are still in the Gale force ranges. The Gale warnings will remain in effect though the morning hours and then are forecast to gradually subside through tomorrow. 20 to 30 knot winds can still be expected through Wednesday though.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where the Great Northwest is on the lee side of the Storm track but will be picking up enough moisture to keep it wet through mid week, then perhaps a few days of drying out could occur.
Even thought there is a weak front moving through Washington, Oregon and Northern California today the only effect will be some cloudiness. This is the first of three rather weak systems that will pass to the north today and tomorrow.
The forecast is for the north-state to remain dry all week.
Looking now at southern California. The system moving across the Pacific northwest will bring cooler conditions to the southland today and tomorrow then Wednesday through the end of the week high pressure will again build over the state. This will produce dry and warmer conditions along with some gusterly northeast winds.
Looking now over to the southwest where the only effect of the systems moving through to the north will be some cloudiness and cooler temperatures though tomorrow night.
The models are building a strong ridge of high pressure aloft over the western conus by the end of the work week into the weekend. This will provide the area will slightly warmer daytime highs by the weekend. Meanwhile temperatures will fluctuate a bit with each passing system to the north.
Well that’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like today and tomorrow will enjoy very moderate winds. Tomorrow the winds should have a southern flavor in the northern and central Sea.
With high pressure rebuilding over the Great Basin on Wednesday we will return to our normal brisk northerlies in the afternoons.
Temperatures won’t chance much and the daytime highs will be in the mid 70s today.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Baja peninsula is still free of any cloudiness and has been for the past 24 hours.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera I can see that they are seeing some scattered cloudiness this morning from a bit south of Puerto Vallarta to Zihuatanejo.
All this is coming from an area of thunderbumper activity about 7-800 miles SW of the cape. It looks like most of the moisture is gone from these clouds as they drift toward the Riviera so I’d doubt they would see and rain of any kind although well off shore I can see some strong rain producing cells out there.
South of Zihuatanejo the skies are clear to Central America this morning.
Looking now at the Gulf of Tehuantepec where it looks like the Tehuantepecker will continue into late Monday night. Gale advisories remain posted into late Monday. The seas in the Gulf are running 8-10ft this morning.
Not much else going on the Eastern Pacific Basin this morning. Virtually no activity along the ITCZ/monsoon trough and the skies are pretty much clear out to Hawaii this morning.
That’s it for our hood so looking north now to the west coast of America at the top of this image I can see a powerful Storm moving through British Columbia and dipping down into the Cascades, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming this morning bringing significant snow to the region. The heaviest snow is forecast for the Cascades today.
I mentioned a strong low working its way out of the Gulf of Alaska and moving down the British Columbia coast. That will impact the Great Northwest and northern California could see some light rain close to the Oregon border as this system sags further south today and tomorrow.
The rest of northern California should remain dry well into next week.
Looking now at southern California where a weak trough of low pressure will move inland from the Pacific today. Moderate gusterly winds will continue through the passes and canyons but not the strong winds associated with yesterday’s Santa Ana winds event.
The low should pass into east by Wednesday and high pressure will again fill in the west.
Looking now over to the southwest where high pressure will weaken tomorrow into Wednesday as these systems pass to the north. Temperatures will remain about the same and slightly above seasonal norms. The gradient should start to relax later today through Wednesday when high pressure will rebuild over the region.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the Sea will continue to see strong winds today diminishing this evening and calm tonight through Tuesday night/Wednesday morning.
Right now it looks like Wednesday through the end of the week the Sea will see relatively strong winds (ballpark 20 knots). That’s a bit far out for me but probably not too far off.
In most locations it was warm last night but today’s highs will be about the same as yesterday and be in the mid 70s.

As you know I put a lot of stock in the Real-time data from the WeatherUnderground stations. I was asked yesterday why some of these stations data is not consistent with stations that are relatively close by. In general most of the recorded wind and temperature data is accurate. Bar readings are where most of the discrepancies occur as most locations do not have a second source to calibrate their barometers. Two reporting stations that currently have this problem are La Venatana and the Mulegé station. I’m aware of this and don’t use these values when reporting bar readings in the Sea.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that a band of clouds moved through southern California late yesterday evening, brushed the northern end of the Sea and then dipped south and are now moving just inland along the Sonoran coast and are currently stretched out from Tucson to Hermosillo. Leaving the Sea to be free of clouds again yesterday and this morning. This band of clouds is supposed to be accompanied by a “Vigorous short wave trough” however the bar reading from the reporting stations this morning indicated that the front had already passed.
Looking south and about 1000 miles off the coast SW of the cape is that large area of thunderbumper activity. It is not quite as active this morning however it is forecast to flair up later today. Debris clouds from this area are being picked up by the west/east flow in the basin and are drifting toward the Riviera this morning. It looks like most of the moisture has dissipated by the time they make landfall so I’d doubt if any sprinkles are in the forecast for today. Right now it looks like most of these clouds are south of Zihuatanejo.
Further south at the Gulf Tehuantepec It looks like another Tehuantepecker weekend with Gale force winds in the Gulf and up to 40 knots down stream in the adjacent Pacific waters. Seas will build as high as 15 feet by Sunday afternoon. Gale conditions should drop below Gale conditions late Monday.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific Basin where there is not a lot of activity along the ITCZ/monsoon trough this morning. As I mentioned most of the convections is north of the zone. Other that that the skies are pretty much clear out to Hawaii this morning.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image I can see a cold front approaching Washington State this morning. No rain is forecast until Monday but freezing fog is forecast again today and tomorrow mornings.
Northern California under building high pressure has seen a dramatic drying of the airmass resulting in very low humidity reading in the northern part of the state.
Clear skies today then a weak cool frontal system arriving Sunday evening which could bring a few light showers north of the bay area.
Another quick moving system will follow on its heels arriving late Monday night or Tuesday morning. The second system will just bring an increase in cloudiness otherwise dry weather under high pressure will continue until late in the week. Later in the week a more robust system may bring rain to northern California.
Looking now to southern California where it is windy. The high pressure over the Nevada plateau is giving cause to Santa Ana winds in the La basin today. Gusts in the 65-70 mph are forecast for the favored passes and canyons.
Coastal waters are under small craft advisories. Although it will be a bit cooler tomorrow, next week should see a warming trend.
Looking now over to the southwest where as I mentioned earlier there is some cloudiness moving through Arizona this morning. It should pass to the SE by later this morning. Strong high pressure off the west coast will bring dry and unseasonable warm daytime temperatures into next week.
As the surface pressure gradient tightens today they can expect to have gusterly conditions especially in the Lower Colorado River Valley today and tomorrow.
Well that’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the winds have already starting in the northern Sea and will encompasses the rest of the Sea as the day wears on. Of the models I use, one is showing the winds stating early in the central Sea and the other around noon. Take your pick it will be windy today and tomorrow as high pressure establishes its self over the Great Basin. By Monday the pressure between the Sea and the basin should be equalized to the extent that our winds should be in the moderate ranges for the start of next week.
Temperatures will cool a bit from yesterday and be mostly in the low to mid 70s today.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can that there has been no clouds in the Sea for the past 24 hours. Not even any fog along the west coast of the Baja peninsula.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where at this time there are no clouds in the vicinity however you would normally expect to see some convection along the ITCZ/monsoon trough which pretty much snakes along 8N this time of year.
This morning there is an area of considerable thunderbumper activity in an area from about 15N to 20N out about 120W. The debris clouds from this area are starting to be picked up by the west/east flow in the basin and will be drifting toward Mexico. So I’d expect that from Acapulco, perhaps Zihuatanejo south they will start to see some passing clouds later today.
Other than that it’s pretty much clear out to Hawaii this morning.
Looking back at the Tehuantepec where cold fronts moving through the SW Gulf of Mexico are keeping the Gale warnings posted and will be off and on throughout the 3-day forecast period. Tiz Tehuantepecker season!
That’s about it for our hood so looking north now to the west coast of America where in general the west coast will be enjoying mild dry weather this weekend.
Well Seattle isn’t exactly mild. Freezing fog is expected this morning and tomorrow morning.
Northern California should be dry most of the weekend however Sunday a trough of low pressure will be moving into the region bringing a chance of rain north of the Golden Gate Sunday night. That being said the models are showing that most of the rain will be north of the California/Oregon border.
Southern California will be gusterly. High pressure over the Nevada plateau and relatively low pressure in the LA basin will give cause to a strong Santa Ana wind event today through tomorrow. It should be warm this weekend then start to cool down a bit on Tuesday with low pressure returning to the west coast.
Looking out into the Pacific this morning the northern jet, aka the northern Pineapple Express has fallen apart and the narrow plume of clouds that have been stretched from west of Hawaii to Seattle is now sort of a 1000 sq mile blob slowly moving toward Oregon and Northern California. Within this blob is the low that is forecast to bring the rain to the Great Northwest and northern California late Sunday and Monday.
Looking now over to the southwest where a couple of weak disturbances will lead to breezy to local windy conditions today and tomorrow. They will be felt mostly over southeast California and the lower Colorado River Valley. Temperatures will still be at or slightly above normal with a warming trend anticipated during the middle of next week as high pressure slowly builds over the western states. With the Storm track well to the north the southwest should enjoy mild conditions well into next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence with the pressure in the Great Basin and Baja about the same today we will be have a day of very light winds in the sea. However this weekend it looks like the seas will be lumpy and the long range look is for Monday and Tuesday to be back to very moderate winds in the Sea again.
Temperatures could climb a few degrees today. All in all it looks like an absolutely great day for a picnic. I may take the day off.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that it has been cloud free for the past 24 hours. This image is showing there is not a cloud within 1000 miles of Baja this morning.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera and it looks like there are no clouds along the coast all the way south to South America this morning.
Taking a look at the Gulf of Tehuantepec this morning where a cold front will move through the SW Gulf of Mexico today followed by strong northerly winds that will surge through the Chivela pass and into the Gulf around 20 knots today then strengthen to minimal Gale force by tonight lasting through tomorrow afternoon. During the day Saturday the winds will be in the 20-25 knot ranges increasing to Gale force Saturday night continuing through sunrise on Monday.
Looking now over to the ITCZ/monsoon trough snaking along 8N this morning. Out about 140W there is an area of thunderbumper activity that is producing some cloudiness in the area but none are drifting toward Mexico.
Not a lot going on in our hood this morning so looking now north to the west coast of America where I can see that the Great Northwest is getting wet this morning from about Eureka north. The heaviest concentration of rain is in Oregon and southern Washington.
All this moisture is coming from a long moisture laden plume that starts west of Hawaii and stretches across the Pacific and then unloads its moisture in the Great Northwest. Well out in the Pacific and about the middle of this plume I can see the next Storm that is forecast to arrive later this weekend. In the meantime light showers today with the cascades getting a light dusting of new snow, then a couple of days of relatively dry conditions for the Great Northwest.
Northern California under high pressure will see mostly sunshine into the weekend along with gusterly wind conditions.
Southern California will see dry and warmer conditions into the weekend. The gradient between the Nevada Plateau and southern California is giving cause to gusterly conditions along the coast and mountain passes. This weekend could see some stronger winds and a brief Santa Ana wind event on Sunday.
Looking now over to the southwest where high pressure aloft will be the main feature controlling the weather over southwest Arizona for the next several days. It should warm a few degrees and then cool back down as a couple of systems move through to the north Friday into the weekend. About the only effect this will have on Arizona will be some high clouds from time to time.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence today most of the Sea will see 20 knot winds laying down this evening. Tomorrow a brief window of moderate winds and then Saturday the strong winds will return.
Today’s winds should not be quite as strong as yesterday’s.
I noted that all the sunrise temperatures were down a few degrees this morning so today will probably be a tad cooler than yesterday and the central Sea will be in the low to mid 70s this afternoon. The Riviera mid 80s.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that for the past 24 hours the Sea has been virtually clear of any cloudiness. During the night there was a small band of whispys that moved north/south down the peninsula and then moved out into the Pacific around sunrise.
On the outside there has been some mostly whispys approach the coast but have not made it over the mountains.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera it looks like it is and has been clear along the coast all the way south to Central America for the past 24 hours.
Looking now at the Tehuantepec where a cold front will move through the SW Gulf of Mexico tomorrow followed by strong northerly winds. These winds will surge through the isthmus of Tehuantepec at around 20 knots tomorrow night and should strengthen to minimal Gale force later tomorrow night with Gale conditions lasting through sunrise Saturday morning. Right now it looks like the winds will diminish to the 20-25 knots by late Saturday and increase again to Gale force by sunrise on Sunday.
So it looks like the crossing window has close again with Tehuantepeckers lasting through the weekend.
Looking now out into the Eastern Pacific Basin and along the ITCZ/monsoon trough where I can see a single thunderbumper way out around 150W and no debris clouds in the basin at all this morning.
The skies are clear all the way out to Hawaii this morning.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image I can see a long moisture plume stretched out from a bit west of Hawaii to the Great Northwest this morning, aka the northern Pineapple Express.
The Storm window is to the north of the border however this plume will be bringing in showers off and on all week to the Great Northwest and as far south as Eureka along the coast and Redding in the upper Sacramento valley today and tomorrow.
The rest of northern California will be what looks like a week of sunshine.
Looking now at southern California: Sunshine there as well for the week however with the gradient between the 1032 high of the Nevada plateau and southern California ballpark 1024 will give cause to gusterly conditions in the southland. A moderate Santa Ana wind event is possible on Sunday.
Looking now over to the southwest where both the water vapor and IR imagery are both showing clear skies this morning. A ridge of high pressure will expand into the southwest for a warming trend today and tomorrow with highs climbing well above normal tomorrow with little change on Friday. A system passing through the Great Basin on Saturday will lead to some modest cooling along with breezy to windy conditions. It looks like it will be dry and mild into mid next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like we will be having a couple of more days of strong winds. Friday looks like a window of moderate winds for the Sea and then the weekend looks like we will be seeing brisk to strong winds again.
Lots of sunshine on tap for today. The northern and central see will see temperatures in the low to mid 70 and the cape area mid to high 70s today. The Riviera mid 80s today.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning, what comes to the eye first is that the moisture plume that we have had with us off and on for about a week has weakened and narrowed. It is now centered on the extreme cape and the southern crossing. The clouds have thinned and it looks like mostly high whispys are in the plume.
So looking at first the northern Sea: There are a couple of Pacific storms poised to move thought California today and tonight however it does not look like the cloudiness from these systems will extend into the Sea.
Looking south to the cape: Only the extreme cape is seeing any clouds and they are just high whispys. So it looks like the entire Sea will be seeing sunshine today.
Looking now over to the Mexican Riviera where again today from about Mazatlan south to Manzanillo they will see some cloudiness however today it will be mostly high whispys.
South of Manzanillo the coast is clear.
The Tehuantepec is still enjoying calm seas in the 5-10 knot ranges. It looks like a window of opportunity for folks wanting to cross the Gulf of Tehuantepec. The forecast is for the calm winds to continue through the 3-day forecast period.
Looking out along the ITCZ/monsoon trough to about 125w where that area has been pumping out lots of clouds for the past two weeks. It would appear that there is not quite so much thunderbumper activity as there has been in this area this morning. The clouds that are moving off the zone are not quite so moisture laden as they have been and the plume as viewed in this image appears veiled and I can see though it. Aka: Whispys!
That’s what is going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where the next two storms to impact California are just making landfall in northern California. Well, the first one is, the second will follow later this morning.
More rain, perhaps hail and even a thunderbumper along the coast and snow in the mountains today in northern California. No one is complaining, they need the water.
The welcome storms have however created some problems in the west. The rivers and streams in the Great Northwest are approaching flood stages. In Portland the Willamette River below Oregon City is at flood heights this morning.
Wind advisories have been posted all along the west coast this morning including the California delta, the Carquinez Strait and the Sacramento and San Juaquin Valley and the Motherlode. 25-60 mph gusts are expected.
High surf is another concern along with eroding beaches. So the rain is coming at a price.
In southern California a rather dry system will move inland today bringing mostly strong gusty winds to the deserts and mountains through this evening. Snow level will be around 5500 feet and light showers to the lower elevations. Small Craft advisories will continue all day for the southern California coastal locations.
Looking now over to the southwest where a chance of showers will develop over southeast California early this afternoon and spread east into south central Arizona by late this afternoon. Any rainfall will be diminishing as they system exits to the east by tomorrow morning.
THEN, Wednesday through Saturday high pressure will rebuild over the southwest.
That is what is going on the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence. Brisk northerlies for central Sea today and then a couple of days of strong northerlies as high pressure builds over the Great Basin .
The good news is lots of sun today from the tip of Baja to the Fence.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that yesterday that moisture plume did not slide south but pretty much stayed centered on central Baja.
The 24 hour loop is showing the southern edge of the plume sending frequent bands of clouds over the cape area for the past 24 hours.
It looks like the same pattern will exist today with cloudiness from about Santa Rosalia south to the cape. There are a few clear as well as hot-spots in the plume so it looks like there could be brief periods of clear skies as well as a chance of some sprinkles.
Looking now south to the Mexican Riviera where the southern crossing and Mazatlan to Manzanillo have been seeing periods of cloudiness for the past 24 hours and these bands of clouds have been passing over.
South of Manzanillo it looks like the skies are clear to Central America this morning.
The Tehuantepec is still enjoying very light winds and they are forecast to last into Tuesday so it looks like the crossing window will be open at least two more days.
Looking now out into the Eastern Pacific Basin along the ITCZ/monsoon trough where an area of heavy convection between 115 and 125W continues to pump our copious amounts of clouds that edge north a bit then are picked up by the west/east flow in the basin and head toward Mexico. This is a very typical winter pattern and by nature we would rather have the sunshine it does produce our world-class sunrises that has inspired photographers, painters and Baja visitors for years. This morning was no exception.
Well, that’s what is going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where wet is the order of the day for the entire west coast even though they are sort of between storms.
There is a big honk’n low sitting off the Washington/Oregon coast that will be bringing significant rain to already soaked Great Northwest and more snow to the Cascades and the Sierras.
Even extreme northern California around Eureka has flood advisories posted for this morning.
For northern California as one Storm exits the region another is approaching. The next system will move through this morning through tomorrow morning with the heaviest rain and snow expected tonight into tomorrow morning. A couple of feet of snow are forecast for above 6000 feet most likely impacting travel in the Sierras.
Looking now at southern California where yesterday’s Storm that brought damaging winds to the deserts and wet weather west of the mountains will be moving east today.
On its heels is another Storm quickly moving toward the southern California coast this morning. It will be a bit stronger than yesterdays Storm with a better chance of some rain in the deserts. They are calling for significant rain the lowlands and snow levels to drop to around 5500 feet today.
Looking now over to the southwest where cloudiness will precede this Storm arriving from California today will bring a chance of valley rain and mountain snow when it arrives later today into tomorrow. A cold air mass will fill in the wake of these fronts moving east. It should start to warm a bit tomorrow and by the end of the week a warming trend can be expected with high pressure building over the region.
Well that is what is going on to the north of us this morning. On this side of the Fence, here in Baja, a good portion of the Sea will be blanketed with a mix of mid-level and mostly high whispys again today.
Today the northern Sea will see moderate winds and the central see will see strong winds today and tomorrow back to moderate and then Tuesday very strong winds in the Sea.
Temperatures today will be in the low to mid 70s for most locations in the Sea.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see the moisture plume moving off the ITCZ/monsoon trough has moved south during night and the central Sea is pretty much clear this morning. The southland continues to see these bands of sometimes moisture laden clouds pass over.
Looking to the north it looks like Baja will be getting a double whammy today with clouds from the latest Pacific Storm moving into northern Baja this morning. The water vapor and the IF imagery are indicating that Ensenada will be see showers today and perhaps this evening along with gusterly conditions.
It looks like cloudiness will moving down the Sea to about the Northern crossing today. Not a lot of moisture left in these clouds so rain is doubtful.
So the only place this morning that will seeing sunshine is the central Sea from Santa Rosalia to Puerto Escondido.
The main body of the plume is pretty much centered on La Paz this morning. At this moment the southern crossing is clear but that could change in a couple of hours.
Looking now over to the Mexican Riviera where bands of clouds have been passing over from Las Mochas south to Manzanillo for the past 24 hours and it looks like that pattern will continue all day.
Looking south Tehuantepec remains calm this morning with winds less than 10 knots forecast through Monday so it looks like a crossing window has opened.
Looking now out along the ITCZ/monsoon trough to an area between about 115 to 125W where considerable convection continues to pump out clouds into the basin that are picked up by the west/east flow in the basin and drift in a long plume toward Mexico.
Looking at the GFS Jet Stream Analysis this morning for the eastern Pacific basin there is still no evidence of the southern jet, aka the Pineapple Express showing up even though this plume is reminiscent of what would happen to this plume if supported by the jet.
I’m temped to call it a “Fake Pineapple Express” just to indentify the character of the plume. The real McCoy would take this plume across Mexico, the Gulf of Mexico and transport the clouds along the eastern seaboard to someplace around Nova Scotia. These clouds today dissipate quickly after making landfall.
Well, that’s what is going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where it is wet from Seattle to San Diego this morning.
This is the second of three strong Pacific storms that will be bringing rain and cold to the west coast. Along with the rain high wind advisories have been issued from the Seattle to Southern California for today.
Snow levels will be around 6,000 feet in the Sierras today. Lake Tahoe is forecast to have welcome snow through Monday. Most resorts have been making snow so far this winter.
The image is showing the main body of this Storm sinking inland down from central California into southern California today. Actually it is going SE and the further south it goes the further east it will go and by later tonight it looks like most of this Storm will have moved east.
Then a slight reprieve before the next Storm starts moving down the west coast on Monday.
Meantime the Great Northwest is experiencing flooding problems with its rivers and streams overflowing. Winds up to 60 mph are being forecast for the coast as well as the Sierra foothills and the mountain passes.
Looking now over to the southwest where this image is showing clouds moving into Arizona this morning. Phoenix it just stating to see some cloudiness and Tucson later this morning. The White mountains my see some snow today however most of the heavy snowfall will in the Great Basin.
Light rain is possible but most of the cloudiness moving into southwest Arizona does not have a lot of moisture in it. The cloudiness should pass today and tomorrow the skies should be clear over the southwest.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the fence it looks like the northern Sea will see some cloudiness today. The southern Sea will again be pretty much solid overcast.
The Mexican Riviera from Mazatlan to Manzanillo will continue to see mostly light bands of mid level clouds pass over today.
Wind-wise for the Sea today the winds will be in the very moderate ranges. Tomorrow they will jump up to around 20 knots and then Monday back to the very moderate ranges again.
Temperatures today will be in the low 70s in most locations in the central Sea. The southern Sea mid 70s and the Riviera mid 80s.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that moisture plume that starts around 130w along the ITCZ/monsoon trough is not very predictable. For the past couple of days this broad plume of clouds has spread out to about Santa Rosalia to the cape during the overnight hours and then slid south during the day to just blanket the cape area and the northern Mexican Riviera in the afternoon.
This morning this moisture laden plume is centered on the central Sea with the extreme cape area at 5am pretty much clear however I can see a ragged plume passing over La Paz right now.
A 1021 high off the west coast of Baja is keeping the plume from moving any further north and perhaps the same pattern as the past couple of days will continue with the plume swinging south during the day. Don’t know. We’ll see?
Looking south to the cape even if the northern edge of the plume does not move south the cape area will be seeing mostly cloudiness today. I can see a lot of “Hot” cells in the plume so showers are a possibility.
Looking over to the Mexican Riviera I can see where several bands of clouds passed over the Mazatlan area during the early morning hours. The area between Mazatlan and Manzanillo are likely to also see some passing bands of clouds during the day.
South of Manzanillo it looks like the skies will be clear all day.
Looking at the Tehuantepec this morning I can see it is also clear and ballpark 20 knot winds are forecast for the 3 day forecast period.
Looking now over to the ITCZ/monsoon trough the skies are clear out to about 125W and then there is an area of heavy convections out to about 135W that is the genesis for the moisture plume.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where a strong winter Storm is bringing rain from Seattle to central California this morning.
Multiple waves of low pressure are moving through the west triggering snow showers in the Cascades and the Sierras. Yesterday the streets of Seattle were covered with ice.
As a system moves through central California today south winds of 15-30 mph are expected with gusts around 40 mph. In the foothills and the coast range gust in the 40-60 mph ranges are expected.
For southern California a couple of Storm systems will move through the region through Monday. Not a lot of rain is forecast for the southland but they should see some rain accumulations.
In the wake of these Storm systems exiting California on Monday a very cold air mass will fill in. Temperatures will drop as much as 10 degrees from today. Monday southern California could see temperatures in the 30s.
Looking now over to the southwest where warm conditions will last through tomorrow then a slow lowering of daytime highs Sunday and Monday before below average temperatures arrive about mid week.
What is left of the Pacific Storm systems will start to move though tomorrow afternoon and evening? The White Mountains should see the only rain from this first system. A stronger system will move though the eastern half of southwest Arizona Monday and Tuesday of next week that could bring showers to the lower deserts.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like today and tomorrow the winds on the Sea will be in the very moderate ranges.
That moisture plume is fickle and trying to figure out where it will go is beyond my skills. A guess would be for clearing skies in the central Sea later this morning. Don’t’ chisel that in stone though.
Temperatures today will be in the low to mid 70s. By Monday the overnight lows should dip about 5 degrees. We will start to see some chilly mornings.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the cape area continued to see moisture laden clouds pass over from the Pacific all day and into the night.
This morning the plume of clouds that is moving off the ITCZ/monsoon trough is continuing to send clouds over the cape and north of the cape. It looks like from about Santa Rosalia south will see ragged bands of clouds pass over today however the cape area will be pretty much solid overcast all day.
Looking now over to the Mexican Riviera where most of the mainland coast will be see at least some of these clouds pass over today today.
Further south the Tehuantepec is relatively calm this morning with 20 knots forecast for today then less than 10 for the next 2 days.
That’s what’s going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where wet weather has finally come to the west coast after a very dry December.
This image is showing the first of three individual storms that are buried in a long plume that extend well out into the Pacific, that will move into California this week and weekend.
The leading edge has just arrived along the Washington/Oregon coast and is forecast to dump significant rain and snow to the Great Northwest today.
The next system is forecast to move into California tomorrow and is expected to be a gully-washer with lots of rain and significant snow is forecast above 6000 ft.
It is currently raining from San Francisco north and the rain is forecast to slide south today and tomorrow. Southern California can expect to see some rain this weekend.
Along with all this welcome rain and snow will be unwelcome high winds that will impact the valley highways of California as well as the mountain passes.
Looking now over to the southwest where weak high pressure will remain over the region through tomorrow resulting in dry conditions and mostly sunny skies.
This weekend what is left of the Pacific Storm will pass through Arizona bringing a chance of rain and mountain snow.
That is what is going on to the north of us. It does not look like any rain will make it’s way into northern Baja however in the wake of these systems moving through California will be a very cold air mass. That will be felt south of the border next week.
Today it looks like the central Sea will see the highest winds and be in the ballpark 20 knot ranges. The rest of the sea will see winds in the moderate ranges.
There is this cloudiness issue. Out in the Pacific there is a lot of moisture laden clouds that will be moving west with the west/east flow in the basin. It looks like the blunt of these clouds will be around the cape area however the central Sea as well as portions of the Riviera will be seeing some this cloudiness as well today.
Currently over Concepcion Bay we have complete overcast with these dark bottomed clouds. They did give us a gorgeous sunrise.
This weekend is shaping up to be very pleasant wind-wise. We will have to wait and see about the cloudiness though.
Temperatures today will be in the low to mid 70s.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea was pretty much free of any clouds yesterday.
Early this morning a large wet plume of clouds drifting up from the ITCZ/monsoon trough started moving toward the cape and by 5am it looked like several very wet cells passed over the southern crossing and into the Mazatlan area.
Looking back into the Pacific there is more of this wet stuff out there and it looks like the cape area will be overcast all day and from time to time there will be a wet cell or cells passing over.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera I can see clouds approaching Puerto Vallarta and Cabo Corrienties this morning however they do not appear to have the wet cells that are in the southern crossing right now.
South of Manzanillo the skies are clear to Central America.
There are no advisories for the Tehuantepec this morning. The winds however are forecast to be in the 20-25 knot ranges for the next couple of days.
Looking now out into the Eastern Pacific Basin and along the ITCZ/monsoon trough I can see an area of very heaver thunderbumper activity between 110 and 120W that is pumping out a lot of moisture laden clouds. They are drifting NE and taking aim on the cape area this morning.
So right now it looks like the northern and most of the central Sea will see sunshine today and the southern Sea could see some sprinkles.
That’s about it for our hood so looking north now to the west coast of America where “Bubba” has arrived in the Great Northwest this morning. The plume of storms out in the Pacific stretches from south of Hawaii to Seattle this morning.
This the first of a long series of storms is bringing rain and snow to Oregon and Washington this morning and the plume will drift south over the next couple of days and by Sunday the entire west coast will be inundated with rain in the valleys and snow in the mountains.
Today San Francisco south will see mostly sunshine. Tonight northern California will start getting wet and the upper Sacramento Valley in the Redding area could start to see some snow. Thursday and Friday the La Basin and by this weekend the entire state.
Looking now over to the southwest where weak high pressure will remain over the southwest through Friday resulting in dry conditions and mostly sunny skies. Temperatures will be slightly above normal with daytime highs in the deserts in the upper 60s and the lower 70s.
The Storm is forecast to arrive over the weekend and with not much oomph left in it, however they could still see some lower elevation rain and mountain snow before the system exits to the east on Monday. Next week dry conditions are forecast for the southwest.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the central Sea to the cape will see today’s strongest winds.
The northern Sea is forecast to see ballpark 20 knots or less.
The rest of the Sea will see strong northerlies today in the mid to upper 20s with Small Craft Advisories. Tomorrow most locations will be back to the moderate ranges and by the weekend the very moderate ranges.
Temperatures will remain in the low to mid 70s today.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see where that plume of mostly whispys moving south down the Sea of Cortez yesterday left clear skies in its wake.
I thought it would continue to move south of the cape late yesterday but the feeder jet dissolved and just remnant clouds passed over the far cape. This morning these remnant clouds are still passing over the cape area, the southern crossing.
This morning there are some mostly high whispys moving up from the ITCZ/monsoon trough and are rather spread out and it looks like from about Puerto Escondido, perhaps Concepcion Bay could see some of these high whispys today.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera it looks like the coast is clear to Panama this morning.
The Tehuantepec will continue to see brisk winds in the 20-25 knot ranges for the 3 day forecast period.
That’s whets going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where the first big Storm of the year will arrive first in the Great Northwest late tonight and by the weekend the entire west coast will see significant rain and mountain snow.
In this image I can see the storm moving across the Pacific. It is about 2000 miles long and spread out across the Pacific on an angle from just north of Hawaii to about 45N this morning off the California/Oregon border.
This is all good news to a very dry California. They need the rain and the snowpack.
In the meantime northern California will remain cold. Hard freeze advisories have been posted for the upper Sacramento valley. Sacramento was 31 this morning. The Sierra foothills including Placerville were in the high 20s and low 30s this morning.
For southern California fair and warmer weather is expected through Thursday under weak high pressure. The Storm will arrive in the southland late Saturday nigh and Sunday. They too will see significant rain and mountain snow.
Looking now over to the southwest where they will see dry conditions with a warming trend through Friday. They should start to see rain and mountain snow late Sunday into Monday along with much cooler temperatures.
Back on this side of the fence today the Sea will have brisk winds this afternoon. Tomorrow very strong winds in the small craft advisory ranges. Thursday the winds will not be as strong, say ballpark 20 knots, in most locations in the Sea.
I noted that most of the afternoon highs yesterday were in the mid to high 70s. La Paz airport reported 85 degrees but I think that was about 10 degrees too high. La Ventana just around the corner reported 75 as their high yesterday.
Today’s afternoon highs should be about the same.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see what looks to be arrival of the southern jet thus our Pineapple Express. Yesterday morning it picked up a plume of mostly high cirrus (whispys) and passed over the northern Sea. As the plume swung south during the day the high plume of whispys moved south with clearing the northern Sea and by late afternoon blanketing the central Sea. During the night the plume moved further south and as of 5am this morning it is over the southern portion of the Baja peninsula from just south of Concepcion Bay to the cape and the southern crossing.
Should this march continue at about the same speed the cape should clear this afternoon and the Mexican Riviera should start to see these high clouds later this afternoon. We’ll see?
At 5am the coast was clear from Mazatlan south to Central America.
The tight gradient over southern Mexico has weakened a little and the winds in the Gulf of Tehuantepec have decreased to just below Gale force winds but remain strong in the 25-30 knot ranges. It looks like it might be a couple more days before a brief crossing window might open.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific Basin this morning. I can see the ITCZ/monsoon trough has only very light convection taking place along the zone this morning.
Further out I can see a huge Storm passing over the Hawaiian Islands this morning. Flood advisories have been issued for the island of Hawaii for this morning. This Storm is slowly moving east toward Mexico it has not lost much strength the past two days. Storm force winds accompany the Storm.
That’s what’s going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image a super highway has opened up for storms moving into the Great Northwest. Portland and Seattle will both see rain and snow all week. The Cascades will also see significant snowfall.
Northern California, north of Eureka will see rain all week and very cold temperatures. Hard freeze advisories have been issued from Eureka north.
From San Francisco south today through early Wednesday should be dry and cold. THEN… Wednesday after a prolonged dry period indications are that a wet weather pattern will develop across northern California and across all of northern California and central California by the end of the week. In addition to possible heavy rain these incoming weather systems may produce locally strong winds in the later half of the week and into the weekend.
Southern California will be cloudy today and extreme southern California has a cold front moving though that could bring some light rain to the region through mid morning. The mountains and deserts will be gusterly with a chance of light snow over 6000 ft.
Looking now over to the southwest I can see the low has already moved out of California and moving quickly through Arizona. This image is showing Tucson just starting to clear and most of the cloudiness moving off to the east. There does not appear to be much moisture in these clouds so if they did get some showers in the higher elevations it would be light.
Well, that’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the fence today won’t be quite as nice as yesterday but it will be very pleasant with light to moderate winds throughout the Sea with most of the Sea seeing sunshine by this afternoon. The Riviera will most likely start to see those high whispys by this afternoon.
Temperatures in the northern Sea will continue to be in the mid 60s today. The central and southern Sea the low to mid 70s today.
Enjoy today and tomorrow because it looks like as pressure builds over the Great Basin Wednesday and Thursday will see a two day blow.

.Looking out into the Eastern Pacific Basin this morning it looks like that area of convection along the ITCZ/monsoon that has been pumping out clouds for over a week now is finally run its course.
This morning and possibly into the afternoon it looks like Baja and the Riviera will still see some cloudiness but sunshine is on the way for later today and tomorrow just in time for the big Art Show being held here at el Burro Cove. Not only that the winds have also decided to cooperate and be in the gentle ranges tomorrow afternoon.
Looking south to the cape area they are still seeing some dark bottomed clouds pass over this morning but by this afternoon they too will be seeing sunshine.
Looking over to the Mexican Riviera this morning and as far south as Acapulco they will be seeing overcast skies this morning and clearing this afternoon.
Looking at bit further south to the Tehuantepec where high pressure across the Gulf of Mexico continue to produce a tight gradient through the Tehuantepec isthmus producing the Gale force winds in the Tehuantepec that are forecast to continue into Monday.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where at the very top of this image I can see the next Storm to inundate British Columbia and the great northwest moving down the British Columbia coast. This very cold system will bring snow to the streets of Seattle and Portland today.
As it moves inland into the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia Places like Penticton will see overnight temperatures in the low teens and snow flurries all week.
Northern California will stay dry into mid week then it looks like there is a good possibility that the Storm window will open for northern California. Rain is forecast for Wednesday.
Southern California will see increasing clouds today from that low swirling off the southern California/northern Baja coast. It is forecast to start moving ashore tomorrow without much fanfair. Ensenada is forecasting drizzle and San Diego just a hint of some sprinkles.
Looking now over to the southwest where today they will be seeing dry conditions and slightly above normal temperatures. This will continue into next weekend.
That low will arrive later tonight and Sunday in a weakened state and quickly move east into New Mexico. It may bring some rain and very high elevation snow as it passes through Arizona. Best chance is later tonight.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the Sea will have moderate NW winds today and then tomorrow and Monday light to very moderate NW winds. That along with mucho sunshine should promise a very pleasant weekend.

.Looking down into the Sea and off the west coast of Baja this morning I can see clouds, clouds and more clouds. These are mostly high cirrus (whispys); they blanketed the Sea yesterday, last night and to a lesser extent this morning. This morning the central Sea looks to be clear but with all those clouds just off the west coast we could see another day of high overcast.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific Basin from about Hawaii to the west coast of the Baja peninsula is pretty much solid cloud cover.
At 4am this morning there was a band of clear air just off the west coast of the Baja peninsula but it looks like that will be filled in with clouds by sunrise the parade of clouds could continue all day over Baja.
Looking south to the cape area where they are completely overcast with dense clouds this morning. Some of these have dark bottoms and the IR imagery is showing some moisture in these clouds so there is a slight chance that a boat-washing-sprinkle can happen.
Looking now over to the Mexican Riviera where they too are experiencing these clouds from Mazatlan to Acapulco this morning and it looks like they will continue all day.
Looking now at the Tehuantepec where high pressure building across the Gulf of Mexico behind a cold front will tighten the gradient through the Tehuantepec isthmus and keep the winds in the Gulf of Tehuantepec at minimal Gale force ranges throughout the weekend.
That’s about it for our hood so looking north now to the west coast of America of America where starting at the top of this image I can see the huge Storm raging over Anchorage Alaska where it is currently 9 degrees and snowing. They have received 170 inches of snow so far this year.
At bit to the south I can see the next Storm that will impact the Great Northwest. It is currently moving through the Aleutian Islands today and will drop down from the Gulf of Alaska tomorrow. Folks will be snowboarding in the streets of Seattle and Portland Saturday and Sunday. Snow levels are forecast to plummet to near Sea level by late Saturday night.
The Storm track is still well to the north of Northern California so no rain is forecast. The long range models are coming into agreement that about the middle of next week the Storm door will again open for northern California with rain forecast late in the week..
Looking now at southern California where a mild Santa Ana Wind Event will be taking place today with gust to 40 mph in the LA basin.
Further south in extreme southern California they will see just moderate gusterly winds from this event. Today will be a bit overcast from those off shore clouds and then Sunday that low that is quite visible on this image will start to move ashore. It will pick up some moisture on the way shore and mostly likely drop most of it before make landfall somewhere between Ensenada and San Diego.
Looking now over to the southwest where the Tucson Forecaster is calling this system a Pacific Storm and the Phoenix Forecaster this morning called it a weak low. Regardless it will quickly move though the region late Sunday and early Monday bringing just a slight chance of showers.
In the meantime dry and slightly above normal temperatures will continue through the beginning of the weekend as high pressure builds into the west. Then cooler than average temperatures are expected Monday and Tuesday in the wake of the departing low. Models are showing temperatures in the lower to mid 70s toward the end of next week with high pressure blanketing the western conus.
That’s what is happening to the north of us. Back here in Baja today it could again be a poor solar day for those of us relying on solar energy with all this cloudiness. Long range forecasts are saying the area along the ITCZ /monsoon trough will continue to pump out these clouds for the foreseeable future. How much will pass over Baja and mainland Mexico is the big question.
Winds-wise today will see the strongest winds in the 3day forecast Period. Winds just over 20 knots are forecast for both the northern and central Sea today. Tomorrow less and then Sunday should be delightful with light winds forecast for the entire Sea.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning it looks like we will be inundated by these high, dense cirrus clouds again today. Especially from the Northern crossing south. The northern end of the Sea will most likely see just scattered bands of these high whispys pass over.
Right now from La Paz south to Lands End and the southern crossing they have very dense high cirrus mixed with some mid level clouds that are pretty much providing sold cloud cover.
Looking now over to the Mexican Riviera. I can see a very large area of clouds moving up from the ITCZ/monsoon trough and taking aim on Puerto Vallarta. They will be seeing the first of these clouds about sunrise then they will fill in the area this morning from around Los Mochas south to almost Zihuatanejo for what looks like most of the day.
Some of these clouds will have dark bottoms but it looks like most of the moisture will have dissipated by the time they reach shore.
Looking further south to the Tehuantepec where a series cold fronts moving through the Gulf of Mexico are keeping the gradient sufficient between the Gulf of Mexico and the Eastern Pacific Basin to keep winds whistling through the Chivela pass into the Gulf of Tehuantepec. Winds will build today and by tonight they should be up to minimal Gale force winds and by Saturday morning a full blow Tehuantepecker with winds to 40 knots will be in the Gulf.
Looking now out into the Eastern Pacific Basin where it looks like there will be no end to the production of clouds moving off the ITCZ/monsoon trough into the Eastern Pacific Basin. With no southern jet, aka the Pineapple Express, these clouds will continue to be in a very broad band slowly drifting toward Baja and Mexico today.
That what is going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where it remains cold and sunny along the west coast cities. Southern California was in the low 40s. Central California and north were in the low to mid 30s and expected to dip into the 20s early next week.
The Storm door is forecast to open for northern California around mid week. Meantime this weekend the Great Northwest will see significant rain and snow. Both Portland and Seattle are forecast to have snow downtown and at Sea level this weekend.
Southern California will be mostly overcast today from that plume of clouds that has moving up from the ITCZ.
With both the IR and Water Vapor images I can see the stationary low swirling about 700 miles SW of San Diego this morning. Finally all the computer models are in agreement as to when and where this system will come ashore. The when is Sunday and the where most likely will be around Ensenada. It will then move quickly NE up into Arizona.
In the meantime the loop images are showing it filling with moisture and then raining. This cycling will continue until it finally starts to move ashore with out much oomph and little moisture left.
Looking now over to the southwest where high pressure has a firm grip on the weather. It will remain dry with afternoon temperatures in the seasonal norms.
Sunday that low system will be moving up into Arizona and bring a slight chance of some showers before quickly exiting to the east. Dry and cool are in the forecast for next week.
Before crossing the border I checked Missoula Montana for Pat and Moe here on the beach. It was 20 degrees there at sunrise this morning and will warm up to around 32 this afternoon. Its suppose to snow there this weekend.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the fence no snow is in our forecast just some cloudiness.
It looks like the strongest winds will be along the Northern Sonoran coast from Guaymas north. The rest of the northern and central Sea less than 20 knots (probably closer to 15 knots) today.
Temperatures about the same as yesterday.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning, again the most dominate feature is the cloudiness off the west coast. This morning it extends north from the ITCZ around 8N, to central California around 35N. The plume runs into a low swirling about 700 miles west of La La land and bends the plume toward California and Arizona so both are seeing some cloudiness this morning.
There is an area of clear air off the Baja coast from around Turtle Bay south to the cape so it looks like sunshine is in the forecast for the central Sea at least until this afternoon when we could start to see more of these cirrus, (whispys) clouds.
Meantime the cape area looks like it will continue to see these patches of stringy clouds pass over today.
Looking now south to the Mexican Riviera where it looks like from time to time they too will see some passing high clouds today.
Looking now at the Tehuantepec where a cold front just moving into the Yucatan Peninsula has heightened the gradient between the Caribbean and the Eastern Pacific Basin and funneling winds of around 20-25 knots into the Gulf this morning. A new front will move into the SW Gulf of Mexico on Thursday evening and initiate a Gale force Tehuantepecker by Friday. So it looks like that brief crossing window will be closing.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific Basin: Clouds, clouds, clouds.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where sunshine is the order of the day for most of the west coast.
No rain is forecast for the rest of this week for any location along the coast.
If you are from California you have most likely been keeping an eye on the rain totals and the snow pack. It’s not a pretty picture. Snow surveyors are reporting that the snowpack is about the driest it had ever been for this time of year. It’s a bit early to think “drought”, but it’s certainly on folks mind up there.
Help may be on the way as the long range forecasters are saying a major change in the weather pattern could take place next week and open the Storm door to northern California. We’ll see?
Looking now at southern California where they are seeing some of the high cloudiness we have been seeing for the past two weeks.
Another item of interest is that low swirling off the California coast this morning. The computers have perhaps nailed it down when it will finally come ashore and that would be Sunday…maybe.
Meantime it will pick up moisture and dump it, and cycle again and when it finally does come ashore it won’t have much energy left in it by then. However there will probably be enough moisture in it to bring a few showers with it.
Looking now over to the southwest where the weather will remain dry and the daytime highs in the seasonal norms. Tucked in their forecast is the possibility of that low off the California coast arriving in the weekend or early next week with the hint of some showers.
Taking a look to the other side of America to where my neighbor Fast Eddie lives in Prince George British Columbia. It was -6 degrees Celsius this morning with snow flurries. That looks like a good reason to be here.
Back in this side of America, here in Baja it looks like a day of sunshine for most of the locations around the Sea of Cortez. The cape will continue to see some passing whispys.
The Sonoran coast around Guaymas will see 20 knot wind this afternoon but it looks like the rest of the Sea will see mid teens.
Temperatures in the northern Sea will remain in the mid to high 60 this afternoon. The central Sea the low to mid 70s. The cape area around 75 this afternoon and the mid 80s along the Riviera.

.Looking down into the Sea I can see that like the past week there has been passing clouds over the Baja peninsula, mostly in the far southern end.
The areas of convection along ITCZ continue to pump out copious amounts of clouds that drift toward Baja and Mexico with the west/east flow in the Eastern Pacific Basin.
Here it is January and still no signs of the southern jet, aka the Pineapple Express so most of these clouds after passing over Baja just sort of meander NE toward Texas and along the Gulf coast.
To give you an idea how large this band of clouds is: It is stretched out the length of Baja and you could drop two Texass in it. The main body is around 500-600 miles to the west of Baja and portions the size of Utah have been breaking off the main band and drift toward Mexico.
Some have some moisture in them but by the time they cross the peninsula most of the moisture is gone. And that’s where we are this morning with what looks like high whispys passing over the southern crossing. With additional isolated bands passing over from Mazatlan to Cabo Corrienties this morning.
Further south along the Riviera the skies are pretty much clear.
No advisories for the Tehuantepec this morning. The next couple of days they are forecast to have ballpark 20K winds in the Gulf.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where it remains cool along the west coast. This morning from San Diego to San Francisco the sunrise temperatures were around 40 degrees. Sacramento was 36.
The entire west coast is forecast to be dry for the next couple of days under high pressure.
That being said, I mentioned yesterday that a low was proged to move down the west coast and come ashore somewhere, sometime. Well with all the sophisticated computers readouts being looked at by folks with PHDs they still don’t have a clue of the when and where.
Here is what is happening. This low is just forming off the Washington coast. So far it has been model dependent, that is it not physically there.
The two models that are in agreement show a cutoff low to drift down the coast and become stationary about 700 miles west southwest of San Diego on Thursday through early Saturday.
The questions the models are wrestling with is; how much subtropical moisture will be drawn toward Arizona from that plume off the Baja coast and what day will it arrive in Arizona. The GFS model that is favored at the moment directs most of the subtropical moisture toward northwest Mexico, Sonora, and far southern Arizona on Sunday.
Should that happen that will introduce a slight threat of area-wide rainfall on Sunday with lingering chances of rain in south central Arizona Sunday evening. We’ll see?
There is another scenario that brings the low down to central Baja. I’m leaning toward the former.
Taking a quick look over into Arizona this morning where it continues to be dry and be just a little warmer over the next few days. Back to about average for Mid January.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the fence it looks like today the Sea, mostly the Baja side will be seeing ballpark 20 knot winds this afternoon. The Sonoran coast a few knots less. Tomorrow about the same then Wednesday into the weekend look very pleasant wind-wise.
I noted that most of the sunrise temperatures were a bit cooler this morning. It was 53 here in the cove this morning. The average for January here is 57 degrees.
Looking way out into Sunday when the Scholarship Benefit Art show will take place at El Burro. Right now the models are showing very moderate winds that afternoon. Don’t chisel this in stone, but that’s the way it looks right now.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning, actually looking out in the Pacific west of Baja. I can see that it is cloudy about half way to Hawaii this morning. This huge bank of clouds is pushing right up against the mountains of the peninsula and for the most part they have not been passing over northern Baja and into the sea. At 5:30 this morning the Sea was pretty much free any cloudiness with the exception of the cape area where the parade of passing bands of clouds has been pretty much non-stop for the past 24 hours.
The southern crossing looks clear right now but a couple of hours ago it was overcast with what looked like whispys.
Also there is a rather heavy band that is and has been quickly passing over Cabo Corrienties with a mix of whispys and fluffys.
South of Cabo Corrienties the coast is for the most part clear of any cloudiness.
There are no advisories for the Tehuantepec. The winds though remain brisk and are forecast to be in the 20-25 knot ranges for the next couple of days.
That looks like that is it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where I can see that the northern Pineapple Express has moved south down the British Columbia coast and is now pumping some moisture to a cold front that will be moving through Washington today and tonight.
It will extend south to the California border. Rain is in the forecast for Eureka and Crescent City in northern California, as well as Coastal Oregon and Washington State today. Tomorrow through the end of the week dry weather is forecast for the Great Northwest.
South of Eureka in Northern California the only chance of rain for the rest of the week will perhaps be tomorrow. There is an upper low that is going to be moving down the California coast and come ashore somewhere. Both the GFS and the NAM have different scenarios of where and when this system will come ashore and I’m not going to try to out-guess a gazillion dollar computer system, so will just have to wait and see where this system comes ashore.
Looking now at southern California where it will be a bit warmer today and the southern California forecasters are saying that that low system might just keep on going and end up moving into northern and central Baja next weekend. This third opinion is different then the GFS and the NAM. Anyway as it passes or moves through southern California it will cool things off again for the latter part of the week.
Looking now over to the southwest a cold air mass has settled in over the region. The southwest is also wondering where and when that low will move inland. A good guess would be later in the week or into the weekend. Anyway in the meantime lots of sun and chilly days. It was 37 degrees in Tucson this morning. That’s a bit warmer than Summerland British Columbia where it was 31 this morning with a mix of rain and snow in their forecast.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back here in Baja the high pressure over the Great Basin has tightened the pressure gradient between there and the Sea of Cortez. Yesterday the forecast was for 30 knot winds in the northern and central Sea. Most of the reporting stations reported strong winds in the 22-28 knot ranges though. A tad less than forecast.
The winds should have peaked in intensity yesterday afternoon and diminished to the 20-25 knot ranges overnight. The Ascatt satellite verified this at 4am this morning.
I’d say today we are looking at winds in the 18-23 ranges for most locations in the Sea and the Baja side. A bit less along the Sonoran coast. Tomorrow we should be back to our normal moderate winter northerlies in the afternoons.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that about mid morning yesterday the last of those bands clouds that were off shore in the Pacific passed over Baja.
This morning the Eastern Pacific Basin is pretty much solid high whispys with patches of clear skies. During the night we have had a few passing clouds and this morning there are still some high whispys here and there.
Directly off the west coast right now there is an area of clear air so this morning it looks like some high whispys and mostly sunny. This afternoon could see some more cloudiness. We’ll see?
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where from about Mazatlan south to Manzanillo they have seen some passing whispys in the past 24 hours and it looks like these isolated stringy bands of whispys will continue today.
Looking further south: The only thing I can see a small squall just west of Panama this morning. The rest of the west coast is clear.
Even the Tehuantepec this morning is clear and the big winds are gone. The next three days the winds are forecast to be in the moderate ranges so it looks like a brief crossing window is open.
Looking now out into the Eastern Pacific Basin to that area of convection along the ITCZ/monsoon trough that has been pumping out all those clouds for over a week now. It does not look much different than it did a week ago and the forecast.
I have been saying these clouds are emanating from the ITCZ/monsoon trough. On closer inspection ITCZ is around 8N this morning and this area of convection sort of fills in an area between 12 and 19N. That would be well to the north of the ITCZ. The only notable difference is that if these bands of clouds were further south they would have a lot more moisture in them.
That’s it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image I can see the northern Storm track wide open and the northern Pineapple Express is feeding cold systems moving down through the Gulf of Alaska and sending them through the interior of British Columbia.
Most of the storms will just brush the Great Northwest however today a weak warm front will slide by quietly and then tonight a cold front will bring widespread rain to northwest Washington.
Northern California under building high pressure will be chilly and dry well into the week. Sacramento was 34 degrees this morning.
Another cold spot is Missoula Montana. Pat and Moe our newest residents on the donkey beach just arrived yesterday. I don’t think they will miss the 27 degrees it was there this morning along with snow flurries that are forecast for today.
I digress! Moving on to southern California. With a 1018 bar over the southland and a 1030 bar over the Nevada plateau the gradient will give cause to a moderate Santa Ana wind event today lasting into tomorrow.
There is another low system that will be moving down the coast Tuesday and Wednesday and the models are all offering different scenarios as to what it will do. The only thing I know is the longer it stays out there the more moisture it will bring ashore. Perhaps tomorrow the models will come to some agreement.
So looking now over to the southwest where a cold front is moving out of southeast California and into Arizona this morning. This could bring a few showers to the region today. Another system I just mentioned that will be moving down the California coast tomorrow and Wednesday will move thought the area Thursday and Friday and there may be enough moisture in it to bring some showers to Arizona.
It will remain cold. Tucson was 37 degrees this morning. Interesting Herford at 5000 feet was 44 degrees at sunrise which was the same temperature as Yuma.
It looks like the tail end of the low moving though Arizona this morning will extend south into the Sea this morning. As the system exits Arizona today high pressure will be filling in its wake.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the fence high pressure building across the Great Basin region early this morning has begun to tighten the gradient across the north end of the Sea. As this system exits to the east northwesterly winds will increase. How much is the problem I have. Two of the models I use indicate winds in the 17-22 knot ranges and the other is indicating 20-30 through the northern half of the Sea this morning and spread through the entire length of the Sea by tomorrow morning. So here I am perched precariously on the horns of a dilemma. Do I tweak the winds down a few knots or leave the higher values. I left the higher values although I don’t think the central see will be seeing 30 knot winds. We’ll see?
Temperatures will be about the same as yesterday and we should see some cooling starting tomorrow.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning in the 24 hour loop I can see that from time to time we had passing clouds from the Pacific pass over the Baja peninsula yesterday and last night.
This morning at 5am it looked like most of the Sea was overcast. This current band of clouds should pass over the peninsula and the Sea later this morning and then there is an area of clear air off the Baja coast for about 5-6 hundred miles so it looks like our afternoon will be pretty much cloud free with the possible exception of some isolated bands of high whispys. We’ll see?
Looking south now to the cape area and the Mexican Riviera. The same scenario there with most of the heavy stuff passing over last night and this morning. The east cape, southern crossing and the Mazatlan to Cabo Corrienties area should be pretty much free of any cloudiness.
Looking further south to the Tehuantepec where the gradient between the Gulf of Mexico and the Gulf of Tehuantepec has decreased. This has reduced the flow through the Chivela pass into the Gulf of Tehuantepec and with the exception of nocturnal drainage flow near 20 knots the winds generally will remain below 20 knots through Monday night.
Looking now out into the Eastern Pacific Basin and along 8N this morning where the ITCZ/monsoon trough is. I can see that between around 110 out to around 130W there is still considerable convection building and producing clouds that drift north in the basin and then are picked up by the east/west flow in the basin and head toward Baja. Within that area of cloudiness out there are several areas of clear air. One of which will be giving us sunny skies this afternoon.
That’s it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image I can see the northern Pineapple Express feeding several storms that are headed toward British Columbia. The Storm track is currently running through the center of British Columbia and well north of the border so Washington my see a light shower or two as these systems pass to the north. Sunday night there will be a good chance of a little rain and mountain snow.
Northern California will continue to be dry into next weekend.
The coast will continue to see high surf today and tomorrow.
Southern California will also be dry for the next several days. They too will have high surf coupled with the high off the coast of San Francisco and low pressure in southern California will produce a mild Santa Ana wind event today into tomorrow afternoon. Small craft advisories are up until early this morning along the southern California coast.
It will start to warm up tomorrow when the high off the west coast starts to move into the western conus and the cold front over the Great Basin exits to the east. High pressure in the Great Basin will again be the dominate player next week.
Looking now over to the southwest where it will be dry and slightly cooler today with the approaching cold front. The front will move southward through Arizona and southeast California tonight and Sunday. This will bring cooler temperatures across the region along with breezy to windy conditions mainly over southeast California and southwest Arizona. Temperatures will dip to the 30s and low 40s Monday and Tuesday.
There is a closed low system that the models have somewhere off the southern California coast later in the week. It may or may not move ashore. If it does it will bring mostly cloudiness and a slight possibility of showers to the mountains.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back here in Baja we can expect another day just like yesterday with light southerlies today.
With high pressure building over the Great Basin over the weekend this will tighten the gradient through the Sea and lead to a two day moderate wind event for the Sea. By tomorrow afternoon we should start to see 22-25 knot winds in the Sea. Monday a tad less and Tuesday back to our normal moderate northerlies.
Tomorrow and Monday the area around Turtle Bay and Cedros Island will be seeing some 20 knot winds from this event.
As far as temperatures: All of the reporting stations reported daytime highs in the 70s yesterday. They should be about the same for today.


That was my weather for today. I do have an announcement that has mostly to do with Concepcion Bay but I think of interest to all as most of you will pass through Concepcion Bay at one time or another. Fonmar, the folks in the Loreto area that oversee the fishing in that area and patrol the protected areas of that region will now have a patrol boat in the Concepcion Bay area. I’m not sure if it will be here all the time or will periodically patrol the area. They have not said. They will be checking fishing licenses and catches to see if they are legal. They are scheduled to be in the bay today.
They have assigned Juan Carlos at the El Burro Restaurant to be an authorized seller of Mexican fishing licenses. So, no more trips out of the area to get a fishing license. He currently has fishing licenses for sale. Fonmar will also be licensing commercial boats and captains for bay excursions and fishing trips within the bay. Juan Carlos is the first one to be licensed as such. They also have a full color pamphlet that you can pick up at JC’s restaurant that is in English that is promoting sport fishing and has all the rules and regulations. It might be a good idea to pick one up to make sure you comply with all of the Mexican fishing laws. They don’t give you just a warning ticket.
That’s all the information that I have on Fonmar at this time.
Now, any questions or fills on my weather?

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that large area of cloudiness off the Baja west coast pretty much stayed there. In the past 8 hours though the west/east flow in the basin has picked up and it looks like today we will be seeing some of these clouds on the move again and pass over the peninsula.
Right now in the northern Sea between San Franciscito bay and LA Bay there is a large band of fluffys passing over the peninsula in into the Sea.
Looking at the rest of the Sea this morning I can see that there are several locations that have fluffys in the area.
Looking now to the Mexican Riviera where they too are seeing isolated patches of fluffys passing over from about Mazatlan to Cabo Corrienties. These clouds have been passing over most of the night and it looks like they will continue to pass over today. There is not a lot of moisture in these clouds so I don’t think that rain is a possibility.
From Cabo Corrienties south to Central America all I can see is an occasional fluffy along the coast.
Looking now at the Tehuantepec where winds continue to funnel thought the Chivala pass into the Gulf of Tehuantepec in the 20-25 knot ranges with gust to 30 knots through the Gulf. 20 knot winds are still being felt 500-600 miles down stream emanating from the winds in the Tehuantepec. The winds in the Gulf are forecast to trend downward and expected to diminish below 20 knots by this evening.
Looking out along the ITCZ/monsoon tough which is running around 10N this morning I can see moderate but widespread convection along the zone. It is from this area that the cloudiness off the Baja coast is coming from.
That’s it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where at the very top of this image I can a big honk’n low swirling in the Gulf of Alaska this morning. It is due on Sunday in the Great Northwest. Meantime as one Storm exits to the east from the area another moves in from the west. Tonight one system is moving east and tomorrow Seattle may even see a day of sunshine before that honker in the Alaskan Gulf arrives on Sunday.
Northern California is pretty much to the south of the Storm track and is forecast to remain cool and dry for the weekend.
High surf is also in the forecast for northern California today with large swells 13 to 16 feet at 16 seconds. Local beaches could be seeing very large breaking waves.
Southern California with the weakening of the high pressure ridge will see cooler weather, low clouds and fog return to the coastal areas. Tomorrow only partial clearing is forecast.
A system moving through the Great Basin on Sunday will give cause to strong gusty winds through and below passes and canyons Saturday night and Sunday.
The surf is also up for southern California surfers. The downside is coastal flooding and beach erosion is forecast for the high tide periods today and tomorrow.
Looking now over to the southwest where dry and unseasonably warm conditions will prevail through Saturday. A low system will move across the 4 corners on Sunday into Monday that will bring a cooling trend and some breeziness and a slight chance of some snow in the White Mountains. Dry and warmer conditions will return by the middle of next week.
That’s what is happening to the north of us. Back on this side of the border it looks like we will be having two days of very moderate winds. Then Sunday and next Monday we should see a mild two day wind event with winds in the mid 20 knot ranges.
My forecast for today is for very moderate East for Northeast winds today. That being said I would not be surprised to see light southern winds in the Sea today. Tomorrow southern winds are in the forecast.
We can blame that unseasonal warm weather in Arizona for our warm January. We are currently about 5 degrees warmer here in the cove than our normal January.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that a few bands of mostly whispys passed over the Baja peninsula in the past 24 hours.
Zooming way out I can see the upper or northern portion of the Pacific to be full of clouds that are streaming (with the aid of a jet stream) toward the Great Northwest.
The lower or southern portion of the Pacific which is called the Eastern Pacific Basin starts around 10N and the ITCZ/monsoon trough. It is also blanketed with clouds however they are rather stationary this morning. The normal west/east flow across the basin has diminished to almost nothing this morning and the clouds out there are sort or wandering around. Baja and the west coast of Mexico may see some cloudiness today but right now it looks like those clouds will be staying in the Pacific.
So sunshine will be the order to the day for both Baja and the Mexican Riviera.
Looking now at the Gulf of Tehuantepec where the current Tehuantepecker is winding down. Gale warning should be dropped later this morning however 30 knot winds are still likely today. The winds should be in the 20 knot ranges by Friday.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where there is a cold front moving through the Great Northwest this morning bringing more rain and mountain snow to the Cascades.
Northern California could catch the tail end of this front as it moves thought today bringing only a slight chance of any rain.
The big news along the west coast are the Storms out in the Pacific to the west of Washington state that are producing large long period swells for the west coast.
Along the northern California coast around Eureka the National Weather Service is forecasting breaker heights of 20-25 feet with locally higher breakers possible. This, of course, makes the beaches unsafe and the high waves will also be causing some beach erosion.
Aside from the high surf northern California should stay dry into the weekend.
Southern California will also see these periods of high surf this week. The high pressure over the region will provide plenty of sunshine for the southland into the weekend.
So “Surf’s Up” for California.
Looking now over to the southwest where dry conditions with above normal daytime temperatures will continue through Saturday. A cold front will then move across the 4 corners regions on Sunday into Monday bringing cooler weather and some breezes along with a slight chance of some snow in the White Mountains. Otherwise dry with a warming trend starting early next week.
That is what is going on to the north of us. Back here in Baja today the central Sea should see the strongest winds and they will be around 20K. Tomorrow very moderate winds and Friday light southerleis.
Temperatures continued to rise with several locations reaching 80 degrees yesterday. The Riviera will see temperatures in the mid 80s today.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that there has been periods of cloudiness over the Sea in the past 24 hours. This morning there is a band of what look like mostly whispys working their way down the Baja peninsula from the north. It looks to me that they will either pass to the east or dissipate by mid morning.
Off the west coast of the Baja peninsula there is some clean air for perhaps 200-300 miles out then heavy cloudiness that is feeding little streamers that will start moving toward Baja later this afternoon. That’s what it looks like to me. The other option, is the whole damn mess move toward the coast and move east over the Sea. That’s an unlikely scenario though.
Looking now at the cape area where they have had passing clouds most of the day yesterday and last night. This morning most have passed to the east and it looks like the cape area will see mostly sunshine today.
Looking now over the to Mexican Riviera where from Mazatlan south to Zihuatanejo they have seen some of those clouds from out in the basin pass over in the past 24 hours. This morning there are several light plumes dotting the coast? The largest was passing over Manzanillo at 5am this morning.
It looks to me that the Riviera will see mostly sunshine today with a few of these isolated bands of clouds passing over.
Looking further south to the Tehuantepec where the Storm Force winds have dropped back to strong Gale Force winds in the 45 knot ranges in Gulf his morning. The Tehuantepecker is forecast to be there until at least tomorrow morning. Seas to 19 ft were observed in the Gale area. A ship reported from 109N that they were still seeing 20 knot winds from the Gulf. That is over 800 miles down stream from the Gulf.
Looking now at the ITCZ/monsoon trough where there most of the heavy convection is on the eastern end of the trough. That would be just to the west of Central America this morning. That area is pumping a lot of clouds into the basin that many will try to pass to the east before they dissipate.
That’s it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where a cold front is just getting ready to dip into the Great Northwest this morning. Rain in the valleys and more snow in the Cascades until tomorrow evening then they should see clear skies into the weekend.
Northern California will have just the tail end of that Pacific Storm just brush Eureka and probably not slide as far south as San Francisco as it passes to the east on Thursday.
It will warm just slightly during the week then cool off in the weekend.
Southern California is forecast to remain warm and dry into Thursday then a cold front is forecast to move through the southland this weekend bringing cooler temperatures back.
The high surf along the coast will last until tomorrow then Friday and Saturday the surfer dudes and dudetttes will get another shot at the 2-head surf
Looking now over to the southwest where dry weather with above normal temperatures will continue the rest of the week. Albeit some cooling starting Friday as a low system passes to the north during the weekend. This morning this image is showing the northeastern portion of the state to have some heavy clouds but closer to the border it clear skies.
Back on this side of the fence it looks like the next three days will be Large, medium and small. Today strong winds in the 21-24 knot ranges for the central Sea. Tomorrow, medium, the winds in the Sea in the 15-19 knot ranges and Friday, small…winds in the very moderate to light ranges. Less and 10 in most locations.
Temperatures continue to creep up. Guaymas will break 80 again today as will the cape area. The rest of the locations around the Sea will be in the mid to high 70s today. The Riviera mid 80s.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea has been pretty much cloud free for the past 24 hours.
To the west of the Baja peninsula there is considerable cloudiness that is knocking on our door. The coastal mountains kept most of it from passing over yesterday but it looks like today we will be seeing some of these clouds pass over the Sea from about Santa Rosalia south.
Looking now at the Mexican Riviera where they have had passing clouds during the night and they continue this morning. This morning it looks like from about Puerto Vallarta south to Manzanillo and Zihuatanejo will see a mix of some dark bottomed clouds and most likely continue all day.
Zooming way out I can see that these clouds pretty much blanket the entire Eastern Pacific Basin from Hawaii to Baja and are coming from along the ITCZ/monsoon trough. The entire zone is pumping out lots of clouds that end up drifting first north then are picked up by the west/east flow in the basin and show up in our hood.
Here it is early January and still no sign of a southern jet stream, aka the Pineapple Express.
Looking now south along the Riviera south of Zihuatanejo it’s clear to South America this morning.
Looking now at the Tehuantepec where a big honk’n Tehuantepecker is brewing. Storm force winds to 50 knots are blowing this morning along with 23 ft seas. The Storm extends well out into the Eastern Pacific Basin for several hundred miles.
The Storm force winds are expected to diminish to Gale force by tonight and the Gale will continue through at least Wednesday when the cold front over the Yucatan is expected to exit the area.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image I can see yet another Storm poised off the Washington coast to make landfall tomorrow. More rain in the low lands and snow in the cascades are in their forecast.
The storm track will continue to stay north of Northern California. They will see a very slight warming trend but the nights will remain chilly. Sacramento warmed up to 38 degrees this morning. The long ranges models are showing Northern California to remain dry through January 12, possibly longer. Hydrologists looking at California’s snow pack are not smiling.
Looking now at southern California where the big weather news is fog and high surf. The high surf is being generated by a Storm out in the central Pacific around 40N. Local sets to 10 feet are forecast and the surfer dudes and dudettes can expect even larger sets Friday and Saturday.
After the dense morning fog burns off slightly above normal daytime temperatures should last into the weekend.
Looking now over to the southwest where high pressure is dominated. They should see a continuation of above normal temperatures until Thursday when a cold front passing though the Great Basin will cool things off into the weekend. No rain is forecast for these systems passing to the north but it will bring periods of breezy weather to the region.
That is what is going on to the north of us. Back here in Baja we can expect today to be much like yesterday wind-wise. In general in the moderate ranges. Tomorrow the northern and central Sea will see 20 knot winds, the southern Sea moderate northwesterlies. Then on Thursday it looks like the northerlies will be in the brisk ranges (15-19) for the entire Sea.
Yesterday saw several locations in the central and southern Sea reach 80 degrees. Today will be about the same.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea has been pretty much free of any cloudiness. Today will most likely be the same.
Off the west coast of the Baja peninsula and Mexico there is a lot of clouds out there and they are slowly moving east toward Baja and the Mexican Riviera. I’d say that the closest bank of clouds is probably 12 hours away so I’m thinking sunny skies today for both Baja and the Mexican Riviera.
About the only thing exciting along the coast is a nice Tehuantepecker brewing in the Gulf of Tehuantepec. The strong gradient will further strengthen the Gale force winds funneling through the Chivela pass and the winds should reach Storm Force (35-50 knot) tonight. The latest model guidance shows these Storm conditions continuing through Wednesday before dropping back to your basic Gale force Tehuantepecker on Thursday.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific Basin this morning I can see that it is mostly overcast between here and Hawaii this morning.
Looking at the ITCZ/monsoon trough there is not a lot of hot spots of thunderbumper activity along the zone but a lot broad areas putting out moderate convection. Just enough to fill the basin.
Ok, that’s what is going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where at the very top of this image I can see a huge Storm moving across British Columbia into Alberta this morning. It looks like it is passing right over Summerland this morning where it is 35 degrees and the forecast is for snow flurries for the next couple of days.
Back on this side of the northern US border the Great Northwest, Washington and Oregon, will be getting wet in the low lands today and the Cascades will be getting plenty of snow this afternoon as yet another Storm moves ashore.
Northern California will only see a slight chance of any rain from this system. It remains chilly inland overnight. Sacramento was 35 at sunrise this morning. A bit warmer along the coast with heavy coastal fog staying around until late the mornings.
Southern California will continue to warm up under nearly stationary high pressure over the southwest. The dense fog along the coast should not impede the surfer dudes and dudettes that will be enjoying head-and-a-half surf for a couple of days.
Looking now over to the southwest where the start of 2012 will remain on the warn side through Thursday with record or near record highs today and tomorrow. It should cool off this weekend as the next Pacific Storm could bring a few showers to the regions. We’ll see?
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back here in the Sea of Cortez the northern Sea will be seeing moderate winds for the next 3 days. The central Sea (Santa Rosalia to Puerto Escondido on the Baja side and the Guaymas area along the Sonoran coast) brisk winds to 20+ for the next 3 days. A bit less in the southern Sea.
Daytime highs continue to creep up and it looks like most of the locations around the Sea of Cortez will be seeing daytime highs in the mid 70s. The Mexican Riviera mid 80s today.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that just a few high whispys passed over the Sea and most of them were around the cape area.
There is a large area of building convections along the ITCZ/monsoon trough this morning between 110 and 130W. I don’t see a lot of thunderbumper activity in it so most likely mid level clouds will be what we will see drifting toward Baja with the west/east flow in the basin. Right now it looks like from the cape to around Manzanillo will be seeing these passing clouds today and the rest of the Sea of Cortez will see abundant sunshine.
South of Manzanillo I can see just a few isolated patches of clouds along the coast to Central America this morning.
Looking now at the Tehuantepec where winds will be funneling through the Chivala pass during the day today and tonight ahead of a strong cold front that will be moving across the Caribbean today. Winds are forecast to reach minimal Gale force early this evening then kick in with 40 knot winds by late tonight and to Storm force by late tomorrow night. So we are looking at 40-50 knot winds with 18 ft seas into Tuesday. The first Tehuantepecker of the year looks like it will be a goodie.
That’s what is going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where the Great Northwest will see valley rain and mountain snow today and well into next week.
Northern California could see a bit of rain tomorrow as this next system passes mainly though British Columbia otherwise the northern state will continue to be dry and slightly warmer.
In this image I can see that Southern California south to around Turtle Bay has heavy fog hugging the coast this morning that is forecast to burn off by late morning otherwise sunshine and dry weather for the next 5 days.
Good news for the surfer dudes and dudettes. There is a big honk’n Storm about 2100 miles NW of San Diego this morning. It is generating a long fetch of 40+ knot winds and a long period swell that will reach Orange and San Diego Counties Tuesday and Wednesday. Surf of 6-8 feet with local sets to 10 feet expected Tuesday through Wednesday afternoon at the beaches.
Looking now over to the southwest where high pressure will remain the dominant weather feature across the desert southwest through much of the week. High temperatures will be well above normal reaching upper 70s or lower 80s over the lower deserts. A couple of spots will be near record levels. It will cool down later in the week as a low system moves in from the northwest.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. On this side of the fence in Baja today it looks like the first day of the year will be mostly sunny.
Wind-wise, the northern Sea will see the next 3 days with moderate north-westerlies. The central Sea will see afternoon gusts to 20 knots for the next 3 days and the southern Sea and the East Cape moderate northwest winds.
The Mexican Riviera should see moderate to light NW winds for the 3 day forecast period.
I noted that all the reporting stations had afternoon temperatures in the low 70s yesterday. It looks like the heat wave will continue today.
74 degrees is the average here in the cove for January.
