.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see the Pineapple Express now blankets the central and southern Sea in either the form of high whispys or moisture laden fluffys.
The ITCZ/Monsoon trough from around 140W all the way to Central America is producing copious amounts of convection. There is a southern jet that is transporting a lot of the clouds but the entire area from around 110 to 100 is a solid mass of clouds. All these clouds are moving NE toward the Baja peninsula and the Mexican Riviera as far south as Cabo Corrienties this morning.
Most of the heavy stuff is from the southern crossing to Cabo Corrienties this morning. I could see what looked like a nice squall right in the center of southern crossing at 5am this morning.
According to the National Hurricane Center winds funneling out of the Gulf of California are near gale force and producing Seas to 8 feet as well. This however is not reflected in the models I use for my forecasts. They are showing 5ft seas at around 8 seconds. Regardless until the gradient relaxes starting tomorrow the southern crossing is not someplace you would want to be.
Further south there is a nice Tehuantepec brewing with winds expected to briefly reach storm force before diminishing on late Saturday. Gale force wind advisories have been posted for today and tomorrow.
That’s what is going in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where high pressure has brought mostly clear skies and a modest warming trend to the west coast.
The Great Northwest however will continue to see wet weather today as a cold front moves through the region.
Southern California under high pressure that will weaken through Saturday bringing warmer and dry weather with the forecast for mild and dry into next week with above normal temperatures.
Looking now over to the southwest where it was cold again last night with freezing temperatures in the lower deserts and a hard freeze in the higher elevations. They can expect dry conditions with a warming trend into the weekend. A few light showers may occur mainly in the higher terrain early next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the strong winds will continue to blow today and diminish to around 20 in most locations around the Sea tomorrow.
A La Paz weather blogger has forecast that northern Baja will be seeing rain along the coast from Saturday through early next week extending south to Turtle Bay. If this does happen I’m sending him kudos and requesting his recourses because I’m not seeing any rain at all over the weekend or into next week for Baja.
What I am seeing is a lousy solar day for most of Baja today with a heavy mix of whispys and fluffys along with strong winds especially in the central and southern Sea. I’d also not be surprise to see reports of sprinkles in the Sea as well as the Mexican Riviera today. Looking outside its dark and grey here this morning. The el Burro Chamber of Commerce is giving today a half a star.
Here are the wind details. The northern Sea today a bit above 20 knots for most locations diminishing Friday into the weekend in the high teens.
The central Sea south to around Puerto Escondido afternoon winds to around 30 knots in many locations diminishing to ballpark 20 knots for Friday into the weekend.
The central Sea south of Puerto Escondido to along the East Cape 22-25 today diminishing to a bit less than 20 tomorrow and into the weekend.
The outside passage should see moderate NW winds over the 3-day forecast period.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan saw 30 knot winds yesterday when the forecast was for a tad over 20. This morning I have tweaked the winds up 10 knots to reflect around 25 knots in the Mazatlan area for today. Puerto Vallarta to Cabo Corrienties moderate NW winds for the next 3 days. Manzanillo and south moderate SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
Most of the real-time stations reported the winds from 6-10 knots below the forecast for yesterday with the exception of the East Cape. They also showed the winds blowing most of the night did not reach forecast values. Most were in the 10-15 knot ranges or less. Hopefully this will continue today with the winds not reaching those 30 knot values forecast.
Temperatures in the Sea today will be in the high 60s again. The Mexican Riviera mid 80s.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the northern and central Sea had mostly sunshine yesterday and it looks like it was mostly clear last night.
The southern Sea has the Pineapple Express passing over bringing broken bands of multi-level clouds over from around Puerto Escondido south to the cape for the past 24 hours.
Some of these clouds continue to be moisture laden.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where the plume extend south to around Manzanillo this morning. I can see several bands of moisture laden clouds passing over the mainland coast this morning.
Over in the Gulf of Mexico a cold front will reach Campeche Bay this evening. A denser air mass behind the font will funnel through the Chivela pass into the Gulf of Tehuantepec by tomorrow and the winds will rapidly ramp up to gale force during the day with winds reaching around 45 knots and probably up to storm force (55-60 knots) by Friday morning. Advisories have been posted.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific basin and along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough which is snaking along 8N this morning. Strong convection is building from around 115 out to around 130W and is being transported by a southern jet toward the Baja peninsula and the northern Mexican Riviera.
That’s what is gong on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image the Great Northwest continues to get wet and accumulate snow in the Cascades.
In Northern California dry weather will continue into early next week when systems from the north and south will bring a change in their weather and bring a chance of rain by next Tuesday.
Strong high pressure lies off the west coast and will expand over California today and tomorrow.
The high pressure over Southern California will bring fair and warmer days and cool nights through the rest of the week. Next week the high pressure will weaken and bring cooler weather to the southland.
Looking now over to the southwest where snow fell on the Fence south of Tucson yesterday morning.
This morning it will continue to be cold but clear skies. It was 38 chilly degrees in Tucson this morning. Hard freeze conditions are forecast for some lower desert locations tonight. It will remain dry and a bit warmer into the weekend when a possibly of some rain in their forecast into early next week.
That’s what is gong on to the north of us. Back on this side of the snow covered Fence, (not really, it’s already melted) anyway on this side of the Fence we can expect a short 2 day blow with very strong winds. And with all that cold air blowing from the north it will not be getting any warmer until the weekend.
So here are the wind details: The northern Sea on the Baja side 17-22 today and tomorrow and diminishing to the mid teens on Friday. Along the Sonoran coast the winds today and tomorrow will be around 30.
The central Sea today and tomorrow ballpark 30 knots and Friday backing off to around 20.
The southern Sea will see their strongest winds today and they will be around 30 then in the mid teens on Thursday and Friday.
The outside passage: NW wind in the mid to high teen for most locations fro the 3-day forecast period with the exception nof Mag Bay and and Abreojos which will see around 20 today.
The Mexican Riviera from Mazatlan to Cabo Corrienties around 20 knots today then back to the very moderate ranges for Thursday and Friday. From Manzanillo south light to moderate SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
Right now it looks like the Pineapple Express will be with us for at least another 24 hours so scattered milti-level clouds will continue passing over the northern Riviera.
Temperatures in the northern Sea were mostly in the mid 40s this morning, the central and southern Sea mid 50s. Daytime highs in the central and southern Sea today will be in the mid to high 60s. With the end of this blow this weekend we should see a rapid rise in the daytime highs to the high 70s.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that we have a little Pineapple Express activity working around the cape area this morning with the return of the southern jet stream. A long moisture plume originating along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough is passing over the cape region this morning and has been for the past 24 hours.
The plume is rather ragged and there have been periods of a mix of fluffys and whispys passing over all night. It looks like this will continue today with possible brief periods of sun peaking through. The plume blankets from around La Paz, the southern crossing and along the Mexican Riviera to Puerto Vallarta this morning.
North of La Paz this image is showing clear skies for the rest of the Sea.
No mention in this morning’s National Hurricane Center daily report of a Tehuantepecker due in the Gulf starting Thursday morning, probably an oversight as that high is still forecast to build over the western Gulf of Mexico on Thursday.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the Great Northwest is getting more valley rain and lots of snow in the Cascades.
Northern California is forecast to remain dry and a bit warmer throughout the work week.
Southern California in the wake of that departing low will be cold and gusterly today. High pressure will settle in over the west coast for the remainder of the week.
Looking over to the southwest where that Pacific low is departing Arizona today leaving behind mostly clean skies, locally breezy conditions and well below normal temperatures.
They should see some snow showers in the mountains and some valley locations this morning then skies clearing from the west. Hard freezes are in their forecast for Wednesday and Thursday then a modest warming trend.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence strong high pressure will build across the Great Basin today. This will combine with troughing over Mexico to strengthen winds in the Sea by this evening. High pressure will continue to build tomorrow with one of the models showing winds in the Sea expected to reach near gale force by Thursday. We’ll see?
Here are the details. The northern Sea today should see moderate winds picking up to around 20 tomorrow and Thursday.
The central Sea moderate NW winds today picking up to the mid to high 20s tomorrow and a bit less on Thursday.
The southern Sea low 20s today, high 20s tomorrow and mid 20s on Thursday.
The outside passage NW wind in the mid to high teens for most locations fro the 3-day forecast period with the exception of Mag Bay and Abreojos which will see around 20 today and tomorrow.
The Mexican Riviera Mazatlan to Cabo Corrienties today mid teens. Tomorrow 16-20, and Thursday back to the mid teens.
Manzanillo south light to moderate NW winds on tap for the 3-day forecast period.
Overnight lows continue to dip in the Sea as much as 10 degrees from Sunday. Daytime highs around 10 degrees in the northern Sea and around 2 degrees cooler in the central and southern Sea. Today will be in the low 60s in the northern Sea, mid 70s in the central Sea and high 70s in the southern Sea. The Riviera will continue to see daytime highs in the mid 80s.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea as well as the Mexican Riviera looked to be clear of any cloudiness.
However there is another moisture plume building off the ITCZ/Monsoon trough this morning between around 110-120. The plume is taking aim on the cape region. It’s still several hours away from the cape so it looks like this afternoon they will see some, first whispys then some multi-level clouds.
The Sea has a band of whispys that will follow in the wake of a cold low that the tail end will be swinging through the northern Sea and the central Sea this morning and early afternoon.
Looking south the Mexican Riviera it looks like it will remain cloud free for the next 24 hours.
Further south the Gulf of thunderbumper has very light winds in their forecast for the next couple of days then it looks like Thursday the next Tehuantepecker will arrive
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific basin and the ITCZ/Monsoon trough I can see there is a lot of convection building between 110 and 1020W this morning. This will be feeding that moisture plume that is developing this morning.
That’s what is going on in our hood, so looking now north to the west coast of America where a cold low will be bringing about a foot of new snow to the Cascades in the Great Northwest today.
Northern could see some coastal light rain but the northern state will be musty dry for the end of the week with a warming trend.
Southern California has a low and its associated cold front departing the region today moving NE into Arizona and the Great Basin. Today it will be cold and gusterly with Small Craft Advisories posted for coastal waters.
They could see some light showers as the systems exits to the east then a warming trend that will warm the southland up about 10 degrees by Friday.
Looking now over to the southwest where as that cold front moves through the state today and tomorrow it will bring gusterly winds and a chance of some valley rain and mountain snow.
High pressure will fill in the wake of the departing low and start warming the state during the later half of the week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence in general the honeymoon (wind-wise) will be over on Wednesday. We have a had a delightful weekend with light to moderate winds in the Sea of Cortez and the winds will pick up a bit today and tomorrow and then Wednesday 20+ knots for the entire Sea.
Here are the details. The northern Sea mostly light winds today and tomorrow then Wednesday picking up to a bit less than 20.
The central Sea today and tomorrow moderate winds in the mid teens then picking up to around 20 on Wednesday
The southern Sea today high teens, tomorrow low 20s and then Wednesday mid 20s.
The outside passage pretty much the opposite of the Sea with 20+ winds today diminishing tomorrow to the mid teens and then Wednesday light to moderate winds for the entire passage.
The Mexican Riviera, Mazatlan is forecast to have 17-20 for the 3-day forecast period. The Puerto Vallarta area today light winds picking up to the moderate ranges on Tuesday and Wednesday. South of Cabo Corrienties light westerly’s for the next 3 days.
As you probably noticed the overnight low were a bit cooler this morning. As much a 10 degrees cooler in many locations. The daytime high though will continue to be in the mid to high 70s for the Sea. It will be a bit warmer tomorrow with the passing of that cold font. The Riviera will continure to be in the mid 80s.\

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that moisture plume that has brought cloudiness to the Sea of Cortez for the past couple of days is drying up. The extreme cape area will continue to see some cloudiness during the day but by this evening it looks like they should have a clear view of the full moon rising.
The central Sea will see some morning fluffys and give way to mostly clear skies later this afternoon. They too should have a good look at tonight’s full moon.
The northern Sea will not be affected by this moisture plume, but a low that has been moving NE up the Baja coast for the past several days. It is currently about 100 miles SW of San Diego and proged to move ashore this morning and continue move NE during the day. The tail end of this front will swing through northern Baja and bring showers to northern Baja and the northern Sea throughout the weekend.
All locations in the far northern Sea showed at least a trace of rain since midnight.
A La Paz blogger has posted that the rain will come as far south as Mulegé on Monday. The models I’m looking at show the tail end moving through northern Baja on Sunday afternoon with most of the moisture gone. Well we’ll see?
That’s what is happening in the Sea. Looking south to the Mexican Riviera it looks like mostly sunshine for the 3-day forecast period. Tomorrow there could be a few fluffys along the coast but not a broad pattern of any cloudiness.
Looking further south to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where with the added component of nocturnal drainage flow, winds over the Gulf continue to be near gale force. The pressure gradient between the Gulf of Mexico and the ITCZ/Monsoon trough is forecast to weaken today and that should diminish the winds below advisory levels by tomorrow afternoon.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image I can see that the Great Northwest will see a series of systems moving through the region keeping the Great Northwest wet at least until mid week.
Northern California will continue to see light showers this weekend as a front moves through. Next week high pressure will rebuild along the west coast and the north state should be dry albeit a bit cooler.
Southern California will be getting a double whammy this weekend with a warm low moving inland today bringing widespread rain to southern California that will continue throughout the weekend.
Just about the time this low move NE out of southern California a cold, but rather dry low that has been moving down the coast from Alaska will come ashore. It is forecast to exit to the east late Sunday and Monday morning.
Building high pressure along the west coast will bring clear skies and cooler temperatures to the southland next week.
Looking now over to the southwest where they are getting wet this morning as that Pacific storm moves across the desert southwest today with lingering showers forecast to last throughout the weekend. Sunday that Alaskan cold front will bring another chance of valley rain and mountain snow mainly Monday and Monday night. Under building high pressure the southwest can expect cool and dry conditions to return the second half of next week.
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 moderate southerlies over the weekend and NW winds to 20 on Monday.
The central Sea from Santa Rosalia to Puerto Escondido should see moderate southerlies over the weekend as well and see the 20K northerlies return on Monday.
The southern Sea light to moderate northerlies over the weekend and then Monday the northerlies are forecast to be in the upper teens.
The outside passage will see another two days of very pleasant NW winds before picking up to the mid 20s on Monday.
The Mexican Riviera from Cabo Corrienties south will see mostly light southerlies of the 3-day forecast period. Mazatlan moderate NW and Puerto Vallarta light NW for the next 3 days.
Temperatures will be about the same as yesterday and be in the mid 70s to the low 80s in the southern Sea.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the central and northern portion of the Sea of Cortez still has heavy overcast this morning. The Pineapple Express continues to pick up moisture from along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough and transport it north along the Baja peninsula.
Now for the past few days a low that has moved all the way west from around Hawaii is now embedded within the plume. For the past 24 hours it has moved north along the peninsula and this morning the low is around 200 miles SW of San Diego.
Interesting dynamics of what is about to happen tomorrow. A cold low now just leaving the Gulf of Alaska will drop down the west coast and tomorrow will push that Baja low and it’s associated cold front east over southern California and southwest Arizona.
Meantime the Pineapple Express will continue to transport these moisture laden clouds along the Baja coast bring mostly scattered light showers along the west coast of the peninsula and scattered sprinkles from around Concepción Bay north today for the Sea.
The plume is weakening and today through tomorrow we could see patches of sun along with a mix of multi-level clouds passing over.
That’s a lot of talk just to say it will be cloudy again today mostly in the central and northern Sea.
The cape area looks to be clear this morning as well as all along the Mexican Riviera.
The Tehuantepec in the Gulf is winding down. The advisories are still up for 40 knot winds that will diminish later today, however winds in the Gulf wall be in the mid 20s over the weekend.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image the Great Northwest will see mostly showers today, then tomorrow a cold front will arrive from the Gulf of Alaska that will bring low elevation snow through the weekend into early next week.
Northern California will feel the affects of that cold front moving down the coast mostly with Temperature drops and little in the way of any rain over the weekend. Next week should be dry in northern California.
Southern California is getting a double-whammy. That Alaskan cold front will arrive tomorrow just in time to push that low moving up the Baja coast inland.
Today subtropical moisture ahead of that low will bring periods of rain today into tomorrow. The rain will turn to showers tomorrow as the Alaskan cold front arrives and starts to move east. The weekend will continue to have unsettled weather including a chance of a thunderbumper this weekend.
Looking not over to the southwest where that combo Alaskan cold front and Pacific storm will move across the desert southwest bringing widespread rainfall to the area mainly tonight and early tomorrow. The threat of showers will persist through at least next Tuesday or Wednesday as conditions remain moist while another low pressure system moves through. Temperatures will drop over the weekend to below seasonal norms and continue through much of next week.
Well, that’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the fence it looks like this weekend it shaping up to be very pleasant. Seasonally warm January days and very moderate winds. The only fly in the ointment are the clouds passing to the north above us. Hopefully they will be gone by tomorrow night.
Here is what the wind look like. The northern Sea today, moderate NW winds in the high teens then the mid teens Saturday and Sunday from the SE.
Those light southern winds will extend as far south as Santa Rosalia over the weekend.
The central Sea from Concepción Bay south to Puerto Escondido moderate northerlies through the weekend.
The southern Sea, La Paz and the East Cape moderate northerlies today and the weekend.
The outside passage will see light to moderate mostly southern winds over the 3-day forecast period.
The Mexican Riviera light to moderate winds for the next 3 days with lots of sunshine. Temperatures in the mid 80s.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see overcast from around Puerto Escondido north to the end of the Sea this morning.
That moisture plume we have been looking at for the past 4 days is paralleling the west coast this morning and being steered by a subtropical jet stream. Aka, our Pineapple Express. It looks like it will be with us for at least the next 24 hours bringing cloudy to partly cloudy conditions to the Sea of Cortez.
As it picks up moisture from around the ITCZ/Monsoon trough the plume expands and contracts so for the at least the next 24 hours we can see periods of sunshine and periods of clouds from the cape to the northern end of the Sea, including the Sonoran coast. Although I can see squalls within the plume off shore it does not look like Baja Sur will see any rain. Northern Baja has a good chance of seeing some rain tomorrow though.
Looking now south to the Mexican Riviera where I can see a few isolated fluffys here and there but no real cloudiness.
Further south at the Gulf of Tehuantepec the winds continue at the gale force threshold and are expected to finally diminish late Saturday. This has been a long Tehuantepecker with gale force winds for over a week.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where a few weak systems will move through the Great Northwest until Saturday when a much stronger system drops down from the Gulf of Alaska. That system will bring snow to the lower elevations.
In northern California it is raining this morning and will taper off tonight through Saturday. Sunday the next system is proged to arrive bringing mostly light showers and snow to the Sierras.
Southern California will see considerable cloudiness from the Pineapple Express with sprinkles turning to light rain today. Tomorrow the trough will start to head inland bringing moderate to heavy rain to the southland. As this system exits to the east another colder system will arrive from the Pacific over the weekend bringing more rain and a good chance of some mountain snow. it should dry out by mid week.
Looking now over to the southwest where the 24 hour loop is showing clouds from the Pineapple Express moving into the SW corner of Arizona yesterday morning and they have continue to move north through the western portion of the state for the past 24 hours. This morning SW and South Central Arizona has cloudy or partially cloudy conditions. They could see some sprinkles or light showers today from the plume before the Pacific storm moves through tomorrow and Saturday bringing a much better chance of valley rain and mountain snow.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like, in general, the next 3 days will see mostly moderate winds in the mid to high teens.
Here are the details. The northern Sea today mid teen today, picking up to around 20 tomorrow and then back to the moderate ranges on Saturday.
The central Sea today and tomorrow the upper teens Then Saturday back to the 12-15 knot ranges.
The southern Sea high teens today and tomorrow and then Saturday back to the mid teens.
The outside passage will continue to see moderate winds of the 3-day forecast period.
The Mexican Riviera will see light winds from Puerto Vallarta south. Mazatlan moderate winds over the next 3 days.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that yesterday most of the Sea saw abundant sunshine.
Last night that Pacific storm that we have been watching for the past 4 days has spread the leading eastern edge of its clouds over most of the Baja peninsula. The low is centered around 900 miles west of the cape this morning.
This image is showing a rain squall extending from around La Paz south to around Cabo Corrienties at 5am this morning.
It looks to me that the Sea will be overcast or at least partially overcast for today and most likely tomorrow as well.
Zooming out I can see that this moisture plume that originates at the ITCZ/Monsoon trough and stretches all the way north in a broad plume to the central British Columbia coast this morning.
As the plume moves NE the entire west coast will start to see rain showers starting this morning.
None of the models coming out of these zillion dollar computers are in agreement with what this cut-off low off our west coast will do. It was not forecast to bring rain to Baja or southern California today but it looks like that is the case. So all we can do is keep an eye on it as see where it goes and what it does.
Right now it looks like from Cabo Corrienties south they have clear skies, however there is a lot of cloudiness just to the west that could drift over as far south as Acapulco today.
A little further south there is a gale brewing in the Gulf of Tehuantepec that won’t say die. This is day 4 of gale force winds and it does not look like the gradient will relax over the Tehuantepec isthmus until Saturday when the winds should drop to around 20 knots.
That’s what’s going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image I can see that the Great Northwest will have a series of wet systems sweep through into the weekend.
Northern California is starting to get wet this morning and showers some strong will continue through tomorrow.
Southern California will see rain from this system starting this morning and then have off and on showers into the weekend. Another colder system is progged to arrive on the southern California coast this weekend.
Looking now over to the southwest where they are having a heat wave with record highs forecast for today and tomorrow. I can see that the Baja moisture plume is sending some wet clouds into southwest Arizona this morning. It looks like there could be some rain in these clouds. Nevertheless the southwest will see some cloudiness the rest of the week with showers forecast for this weekend and another system proged to arrive on Monday into Tuesday.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the fence wind-wise, very pleasant with moderate winds on tap for today, picking up to around 20 knots in most locations in the northern and central Sea tomorrow and then a bit lighter on Friday.
Here are the details: The northern Sea light to moderate for the 3-day forecast period.
The central Sea today: light to moderate NE, around 20 tomorrow from the NW and Friday backing off to the mid to high teens.
The southern Sea today: Light, tomorrow, moderate and Friday strong to around 20 knots from the NW.
The outside passage moderate southerlies today and tomorrow and Friday swinging back around to the NW and still be in the moderate ranges.
The Mexican Riviera mostly light to moderate WNW winds over the 3-day forecast period. There will however be 3-4 feet seas at around 17 seconds for the next 3 days.
A quick last look at the real-time stations in the southern Sea and none were reporting rain, however this IR image is showing some serious dark bottomed clouds moving off East Cape into the southern crossing right now. The webcams at La Paz, East Cape and Cabo are all showing heavy overcast a few minutes ago. I could also see that increasable sunrise in their webcams, as well as looking out my window this morning.
Temperatures about the same as yesterday.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that we have had another 24 hours of sunshine in the Sea of Cortez. It also looks like that moisture plume that has been over the Riviera has continued to move south yesterday and this morning this plume’s northern edge is around Zihuatanejo and the southern edge well south into Central America. So most of the Riviera had abundant sunshine yesterday.
Looking now at the Gulf to Tehuantepec where the Tehuantepecker is still brewing and will continue to linger through Wednesday with winds in the 35 knot ranges.
Looking now out into the Eastern Pacific basin where the real meteorologists are calling that low out there a “Cut-off low” meaning it’s moving rather independently from the flow in the basin. The low is currently around 1004 and the center is now around 300 miles closer to Baja than yesterday morning. The cold front in front of the low is embedded in a long moisture plume that this morning stretches from around 24N134W to the Gulf of Alaska. The plume has moved east over past couple of days and the leading edge is now poised to bring rain to northern British Columbia today, the Great Northwest tomorrow and later tomorrow northern California.
Rain is in the forecast for southern California this weekend.
Starting today the entire west coast will start to see cloudiness from this system, including Baja perhaps by tomorrow morning. One of the bloggers in La Paz is forecasting rain for southern Baja this weekend. We’ll see?
Well I normally cover our local sky conditions here before looking north. I look like I’ve already pretty much done that so just a quick recap of the west coast of America. Warm today in northern California and cooling off as the front approaches.
Southern California still under high pressure warm days and cool night into later in the week when that moisture laden pacific storm arrives. It’s forecast to last into the weekend.
Over in the southwest record daytime highs could be reached today and tomorrow. Warm and dry into the weekend when that storm is forecast to bring some valley rain and mountain snow to most of Arizona.
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 be delightful. Very moderate winds and lots of sunshine
Here are the wind details.
The northern Sea today moderate NW today and light northerlies on Wednesday and Thursday.
The central Sea from Santa Rosalia south to Puerto Escondido today moderate winds today and tomorrow and picking up to around 20 on Thursday.
The southern Sea including the East Cape: moderate winds in the mid to low teens today and tomorrow then around 20 knots on Thursday.
The outside passage will continue to see very moderate NW winds over the 3-day forecast period.
The Mexican Riviera, Mazatlan moderate NW winds for the next 3 days. Puerto Vallarta south to Manzanillo light NW winds and Zihuatanejo south light WSW winds over the next 3 days.
. Afternoon temperatures in the Sea in the mid to high 70s with the cape area and the Riviera in the low 80.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez had another sunny day yesterday and the high clouds that were over the cape area have moved off to the east last night.
This morning the cape region and the southern crossing look to be cloud free.
That plume of moisture that has been sending a mix of fluffys and whispys over the Mexican Riviera has slid south overnight and this morning the northern edge is around Cabo Corrienties and the southern extreme is around the Guatemala border.
This image is showing this moisture plume to still be moving south this morning. How far it will go, I don’t know.
Further south at the Gulf of Tehuantepec strong high pressure in the Gulf of Mexico and low pressure in the basin are keeping the winds funneling thorough the Chivela pass into the Gulf at gale force levels. The 3-day forecast period shows ballpark 35 knot winds in he Gulf and downstream.
Now looking out into the Pacific where a Gale is brewing from 32N139W to 26N137W. The bar there is around 1004 and it is pulling a lot of subtropical moisture into the leading front. It has moved about 800 miles closer to Baja from yesterday which puts it around 1700 miles due west of the cape.
There is a moisture plume in front of this swirling low that goes due north all the way to the Gulf of Alaska and then curls east over the top of British Columbia and mixes with cold air moving into northern Alberta. This is, of course, being steered by a jet stream and presents a very dramatic picture in the Pacific this morning.
Nobody is forecasting that this storm will reach Baja but it certainly is interesting watching this storm develop and move across the Eastern Pacific basin.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America of America where there is another day of absolutely nothing happening to the north of us. High pressure is keeping the skies clear and the storm door closed.
Tomorrow the high off the Pacific coast will start moving east and by Wednesday it will be over the Great Basin. This will crack the door open for any lows that are out in the Pacific. There will be a few small systems creep in but the west coast will have to wait until the weekend before they see any real chance of any valley rain and mountain snow.
The Great Northwest will be the first to feel the effects of the high moving east with off and on rain showers all week.
Northern California if sort of iffy as far as any rain this week. Again the weekend looks like their best chance for some weather.
Southern California remains unseasonably warn and dry until Friday then like the rest of the west coast they can expect to see rain along the coast and snow in the mountains.
Looking now over to the southwest where about the only thing that will change this week are some high clouds passing over from time to time. Temperatures will remain well above seasonal norms.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the fence today could be the last day of these 20 knot winds for a while, at least for the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the details: The northern Sea today NW 20, Tomorrow NW 17 and Wednesday NW 11.
The central Sea: ballpark 20 knots today, mid teens tomorrow and low teens on Wednesday all from the NW.
The southern Sea, the La Paz area and the East Cape where a number of folks have been waiting for a window to move south. It looks like the window is opening. Today the high teens, say 18 knots. Tomorrow around 16 knots from the NNW then on Wednesday around 12 knots from the NW.
The outside passage has moderate NW winds in their forecast for the 3-day forecast period.
The Mexican Riviera will continue to see light winds over the next three days.
Afternoon temperatures have been increasing in the Sea a couple of degrees a day and that should continue over the 3-day forecast period.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez has been pretty much cloud free for the past 24 hours, and it looks like that will continue today.
Well almost, the East Cape will see some mostly whispys passing over today.
The southern crossing south will see a mix of whispys and fluffys all day. It does not look like the lower clouds have much moisture in them so there should be very little chance of any sprinkles along the coast today.
Looking now south to the Tehuantepec isthmus where strong SW winds from the Gulf of Mexico continue to roar through the Chivala Pass into the Gulf of Tehuantepec bringing gale force winds into the gulf and out into the Eastern Pacific basin. The winds may decrease below gale force criteria late today before the next blast of air in the Gulf of Mexico increases the winds again to gale force well into next week.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific basin this morning I can see a large 1003 mb low and its attendant cold front west and NW of Hawaii swirling out there this morning and moving east. The frontal edge has a lot of squall activity in it and it currently has gale force winds along with 20 foot seas.
It’s it bit unusual to see a storm develop this far south at any time of the year. The forecasters are not saying much about this system except that it’s out there. In the past 24 hours it has however moved further from Hawaii and closer to Mexico. With no track record for storms like this I don’t have a clue where this storm will end up. We will just have to wait and see.
Ok that what is gong on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where not much has changed in the past 3 days and not much Is going to change in the next 3 days.
Late Tuesday or Wednesday looks like when the ridge of high pressure off the west coast will weaken and start to move east opening the door to lows lurking out in the Pacific.
Later in the week California should see the first of these systems move ashore. The Great Northwest however will probably see some rain starting late Tuesday and then have an active weather pattern through next weekend. The folks in Seattle tend to get a little depressed if they don’t get any rain for a prolong period of time. The freezing fog this morning probably kept them from getting a little grumpy.
Southern California will continue to be in a mild warming trend for a couple more days before it starts to cool off again. More significant cooling is likely by next weekend as a Pacific storm will bring a good chance of rain to the southland.
Looking now over to the southwest where temperatures will remain well above seasonal norms for the upcoming week. They could see some wet weather next weekend, but in the meantime it will remain dry.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the northern and central Sea of Cortez will see ballpark 20 knot winds for at least the next 3 days.
In the southern Sea La Paz will see moderate NW winds in the mid teens today and tomorrow then around 20 knots on Tuesday. The East Cape will continue to see ballpark 20 knot winds in the afternoons over the 3-day forecast period.
Temperatures will continue to rise a degree or two a day in the Sea of Cortez. We could start to see some 80 degree afternoons later in the week. The Mexican Riviera will continue to see afternoon highs in the mid 80s.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that all that cloudiness we had yesterday in the Sea has passed over to the east last night and the Sea looks to be pretty much free of any cloudiness that could affect our solar charging today.
To the south I can see a large plume of clouds moving toward the Riviera. The heaviest concentration is to the south of Cabo Corrienties but it looks like when this plume reaches land Puerto Vallarta south will see some whispys while south of Cabo Corrienties the plume is carrying a lot of moisture and I’d not be surprised to see some report of sprinkles later today.
Again this morning strong winds are funneling through the Chivela pass into the Gulf of Tehuantepec becoming storm force velocity. Reports of 50 knot winds in the Gulf again this morning. Model guidance extends storm force conditions to late this morning then diminishing to Gale force winds though tomorrow and just a bit less into Tuesday and beyond.
The only other item in our hood is a long period swell moving down the Baja coast that advisories have been issued warning of large wave heights and beach erosion.
There is another item perhaps worth mentioning and that is out in the Pacific just east of Hawaii is what looks like a storm developing. It’s a bit south of where we normally see these storm develop, but this has been sort of a weird year weather wise so perhaps we may see a storm move into Baja next week. We’ll see? That would make the cows happy.
So looking now north to the west coast of America where not much has changed on the west coast or for that matter the entire western conus for the past several days.
High pressure looms large over the west bringing mostly clear skies and dry weather conditions. It looks like not much will change until mid next week when the high breaks down.
In the meantime high pressure has extended south with a 1027 high residing over central Mexico this morning and that is moderating the pressure gradient between here and the Great Basin.
Looking at the southwest this morning where high pressure will dominate their weather well into next week. That Pacific high should start to move east early next week and slowly move over the southwest by Tuesday keeping the temperatures well above seasonal norms for much of the coming week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the 3-day forecast period for the Sea of Cortez has ballpark 20k winds in the forecast for the afternoons. That being said, these 20 knot winds were in the forecast for yesterday and only one station out of the ten that I look at in the Sea reported winds over around 15 knots yesterday. All were below their forecast velocities. Hopefully that will be the case tomorrow for the big art show here at el Burro.
The winds along the Mexican Riviera should be light to moderate NW winds over the 3-day forecast period. That long period swell should reach Cabo Corrienties tomorrow and from there south around a 4 ft swell at 25 seconds for Sunday and Monday.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that there are still a lot of mostly whispys passing over the extreme cape area and as far south as Manzanillo this morning.
The Jet Stream Analysis has been showing the southern jet shrinking for the past couple of days and this morning it has completely disappeared.
There is still a lot of cloudiness out in the Eastern Pacific basin but with no steerage they will spread out and drift with the west/east flow in the basin toward Baja. I’d imagine that by tomorrow morning most of the central and southern Sea will have high whispys overhead. To a lesser extent the northern Riviera. We’ll see?
South of Manzanillo the skies are clear all the way to Central America this morning.
Looking now at the Gulf of Tehuantepec where a full blown Tehuantepecker with winds to 50 knots are forecast to last until this evening when the winds should drop back to around 30 knots into tomorrow and less than 30 on Saturday.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where high pressure is bringing a modest warming trend to the west. Because of the gradient between the Nevada plateau and southern California they will be seeing Santa Ana winds for a few days.
Otherwise not much is going to change in the west until the next low comes in from the Pacific and the models are a bit iffy about when that is going to happen. Perhaps some time later next week, maybe.
Although the days will warm up in the west, without any cloud cover the nights will remain cool.
Over in the southwest they too will have a warming trend as high pressure remains in place for at least to the end of next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the fence that high pressure will keep the winds brisk at least through the weekend.
The low that was centered over south-central Mexico is now gone with high pressure filling in. The only lows in our hood are south of the cape and that will keep the isobars stacked well into the weekend.
Over the past few days most of the winds on the Baja side of the northern crossing have not reached their forecast values. Hopefully that will be the case this weekend when the Big Art show takes place at El Burro. The winds are currently forecast to be in the high teens Sunday afternoon so we will need a little luck from the wind gods that afternoon.
Here is what is happening today.
The northern Sea should see ballpark 20 knot winds over the 3-day forecast period.
The central Sea the mid 20s today and then 20 or a bit less Friday and Saturday.
The southern Sea around 15-19 over the 3-day forecast period.
The Sea should start to see a modest warming trend starting today.
The outside passage light to moderate over the next 3 days.
The Mexican Riviera light to moderate winds with a southern flavor through Saturday.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that we have had another day of cloudless skies after a few fluffys floating around the Sea yesterday morning blew out.
The Pineapple Express is still dragging clouds out of the Eastern Pacific basin and sending them across the cape region and the Riviera this morning and it looks like this will continue all day. Manzanillo south looks to be cloud free this morning.
Further south there will be a full blown Tehuantepecker going on in the Gulf later today with 50 mph winds forecast until tomorrow morning when the are forecast to drop back to just minimal gale force winds around 35 knots.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific basin this morning I can see there are abundant clouds out there for the Pineapple Express to tap into.
That’s what is gong on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America of America at the top of this image Seattle is experiencing some freezing drizzle this morning however the rest of the west coast is dry albeit cold today.
The strong high pressure aloft will remain anchored near the west coast will be bringing dry and very stable condition to the west for the rest of the week.
It looks like the entire west coast will remain cold, with sub freezing overnight lows until Friday when it’s forecast to start a warming trend along the west coast.
In southern California it will remain dry, cold, and gusterly into the weekend.
Looking now over to the southwest where a warming trend will continue across the region today as high pressure aloft builds across the area. Afternoon highs and overnight lows will return to normal by the weekend with slightly above normal values expected next week. Dry weather will prevail through at least the end of next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the fence we will continue to see gale force NW winds in the Sea for one more day. That good news may be tempered by the forecast that is forecasting 20 knot winds to continue into the weekend. That’s 4-5 days out but all the models I’ve looked at are showing 15-20 knot winds this weekend.
Today the northern Sea will continue to see 30 knot winds diminishing to just above 20 tomorrow and just below 20 on Friday.
The central Sea pretty much the same thing with the 30 knot winds today, mid 20s tomorrow and around 20 knots on Friday.
The southern Sea the mid to high 20s today diminishing to the mid teens for Thursday and Friday.
The outside passage should see strong winds to around 24 knots all along the outside today diminishing to the mid teens for Thursday and Friday.
The Mexican Riviera Mazatlan to Cabo Corrienties mid to high teens today with a mix of whispys and fluffys passing over, then light the rest of the 3-day forecast period. Manzanillo south light to moderate southerlies for the 3-day forecast period.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Pineapple Express is still with us and transporting a lot of moisture laden clouds from the Eastern Pacific basin toward the southern tip of Baja and the Mexican Riviera as far south as Manzanillo this morning. This is a broad scatterd plume with the majority of the clouds being cirrus, whispys, however there are some lower clouds in the plume that have dark bottoms.
It looks like there are some whispys passing over the La Paz area but the rest of the Sea looks to be pretty much cloud free this morning.
Looking now south to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where the National Hurricane Center finally got around to issuing a gale warning to the Gulf for the next couple of days. They expect winds to around 40 knot and seas to 17 feet from this Tehuantepecker.
Looking now out along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough this morning where there is an increase in thunderbumper activity along the zone with lots of clouds moving north off the zone and being picked up by the southern jet and sending them toward Baja and the Mexican Riviera. Although the jet stream analysis showed the jet shortening it remains strong and extends NE all the way to around the northern coast of New England this morning
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America of America where high pressure is the major player and will continue to be pretty much the only player in the weather throughout the week.
As I mentioned, that high off the California coast will start moving east today and by Thursday blanket the entire western conus.
Meantime the west coast remains cold with freezing or sub freezing temperatures in this morning’s forecast for most of the cities along the west coast from San Diego to Seattle again this morning.
Seattle had some freezing drizzle this morning, but that should clear this afternoon and the Great Northwest should see clear skies the rest of the week.
The high pressure will bring mostly clear skies to the rest of the west and a very slow warming trend later in the week.
Looking now over to the southwest where Tucson was a chilly 25 degrees this morning and should warm up to around 45 this afternoon.
That cold Canadian airmass will depart with the advance of the Pacific high moving into the region on Thursday. Meantime below freezing low temperatures are possible through Wednesday. Later in the week and into the weekend temperatures will slowly recover to be more in the normal readings for this time of year.
So it looks like the west will slowly warm over the course of the week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like it will be another two days before the gradient relaxes between here and the Great Basin.
This morning there is still that 1009 low parked over central Mexico. It is forecast to be gone by Thursday bringing to an end of this strong wind event in the Sea.
Here is what the Sea will look like for the 3-day forecast period. First the northern Sea: Today and tomorrow ballpark 30 knot Northwest winds. Thursday diminishing to around 20 knots.
The Central Sea Santa Rosalia to Puerto Escondido: 35-40 today, around 30 tomorrow and Thursday ballpark 20 knots.
The southern Sea: 33-36 today 20-26 tomorrow and the mid teens on Thursday.
The outside passage the center of the passage will see 22-30 today diminishing tomorrow and by Thursday in the very moderate ranges.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan to Cabo Corrienties should see 20-25 today then the entire Riviera should see light winds over the 3-day forecast period.
That was the winds, now about the cold. Concepción Bay was the warm spot this morning with a sunrise Temperature of 51. The rest of the northern and central Sea was in the 40s. The cape region was in the mid 50s this morning.
Today the highs in the central Sea will be in the low 60s and with the wind chill it will feel like the low 40s, even the high 30s out of the sun. I checked on our good friend Bob in Herford and his station was reading 15 degrees at sunrise this morning. It’s time to put the liners in our Speed-Os.
That being said, the Riviera will continue to see daytime highs in the mid 80s.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the southern jet, aka, the Pineapple Express has continued to stream a long plume of mostly whispys over the cape area and the area along the Riviera from Manzanillo north to around Las Mochas.
Long range models are showing this pattern to continue for at least the next 24 hours.
Meantime the Sea has been having abundant sunshine.
There has been no mention of a wind event for the Tehuantepec that was advertized to start late tomorrow evening. There is a new guy on the National Hurricane Center night-shift desk so he may not be up to speed for the Eastern Pacific basin and the gap winds in the Tehuantepec isthmus yet. We’ll see?
Looking out to the ITCZ/Monsoon trough I can see that it is not as active as it has been for the past week. The jet stream has weakened and it looks like it could blow-out today, slowing down the amount and flow of clouds across the basin.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America of America where at the top of this image the real meteorologists a forecasting a “Clipper” in British Columbia today. A Canadian Clipper is a fast moving very cold low. Although it will not dip down very far in the U.S., it will usher in more cold air into the western conus.
Most of the models are showing the high pressure ridge off the west coast breaking down tomorrow opening the door for some warmer weather to move onto the coast and also open the storm door which has been closed for over a week now.
Meantime it will remain cold all along the west coast. Overnight lows were again in the 30s from San Diego to Seattle this morning.
In southern California not only is it cold, (frost on the beaches) it will be windy again today, however the winds will weaken tomorrow.
Looking now over to the southwest where widespread hard freeze conditions blanket most of the southwest again this morning. It will remain dry with the exception of perhaps a few snow flurries in the White Mountains.
It should start to warm up on Wednesday.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it will be cold and windy for the next couple of days. With the wind-chill it will seem like the 40s in most locations in the Sea today and tomorrow.
The next three days the northern Sea will see 30+ knot NW winds in the afternoons.
The central Sea today a tad less than 30. Tomorrow from Santa Rosalia to Puerto Escondido around 35 knot winds in the afternoons.
Wednesday it looks like the mid to high 20s.
The southern Sea La Paz and the East Cape mid 20 knot ranges today. Around 35 knots tomorrow and then on Wednesday back to the mid 20 knot ranges.
For the outside passage the winds on both ends of the passage should be in the moderate ranges and the center sections strong winds to 30 knots over the next 3 days.
Along the Riviera Mazatlan will be windy over the 3-day forecast period. Today around 20, 25 tomorrow and Wednesday in the mid teens. The rest of the Mexican Riviera should see NW winds in the light to moderate ranges over the 3-day forecast period.
This morning most of the sunrise temperatures were in the high 40s to the low 50s. Daytime highs yesterday were mostly in the 60s for the Sea of Cortes and 80s along the Mexican Riviera. Today should be about the same.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea has had 24 hours of pretty much cloud free skies.
The southern jet is still active this morning and transporting moisture laden clouds from along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough NE, sometimes directly over the cape, where it is overcast this morning, but most of the time to the south of the southern crossing to around Cabo Corrienties.
There is a lot of moisture in this Pineapple Express plume and there is a possibility of isolated sprinkles along the Riviera coast today. The plume continues across Mexico, the Gulf of Mexico, and up into Mississippi where it continues to cause flooding in the upper Mississippi River Valley. The plume then continues up into the Great Lakes.
Meantime back in our hood the Gulf of Tehuantepec will continue to see very moderate winds until around Wednesday when the next wind event is forecast to bring winds into the Gulf to almost gale force by Thursday.
That’s it for our hood, looking now north to the west coast of America of America where very cold air continues to drop down from Canada into the western conus.
Freezing or sub freezing temperatures are in the forecast for most of the west coast for today into tomorrow, then high pressure is forecast to move in from the Pacific and bring a warming trend into mid week. Meantime it looks like the west coast will be having a couple more 3-dog-nights.
Looking over to the southwest where Tucson was 21 degrees this and will warm up to around 46 this afternoon. The cold Canadian Airmass will remain in place through tomorrow night with near or sub-freezing minimum temperatures in place over the lower deserts. Conditions will gradually warm by the end of the week as warmer air moves into the region from the south.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence today the northern Sea will see moderate winds. The central and southern Sea around 20 then for the next couple of days there will be almost gale conditions in the Sea.
If you are in the Sea today it would be a good day to check ground tackle and make sure roller furlings and other bits of string around the boat are secured or stowed.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning with the 24 hour loop I can see the that band of clouds off the west coast of the Baja peninsula has swung south starting yesterday afternoon and has continued moving south so that now the plume is pretty much centered over Puerto Vallarta with the northern edge just south of the cape and the southern edge around Cabo Corrienties.
In general this leaves the Sea of Cortez pretty much cloud free today.
What has caused this band to narrow considerably is the arrival of the southern jet last night. So it looks like the area from around Mazatlan south to Cabo Corrienties will be seeing a mix of whispys and fluffys today.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific basin where there is still a lot of convection building along the zone for the jet to transport toward Mexico.
Looking now back at the mainland and the Gulf of Tehuantepec where it continues to be relatively quiet there. Right now it looks like the next wind event will be late Tuesday into Wednesday possibly up to gale force.
Well that’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America of America where a pool of cold arctic air has settled over the western conus.
Here are some overnight lows along the west coast for last night. San Diego 28, La La Land 33, Sacramento 27, Seattle 25. Tucson was 19 degrees at 5am this morning.
Temperatures this cold could be putting a hurt on the ag-biz in California depending on how long the temperatures remain below 30 degrees.
The good and the bad are in the forecast. The good is that this cold spell will be over most likely Tuesday with strong high pressure building over the Great Basin. The west should see significant warming from Wednesday into the weekend.
The bad is that strong high pressure over the Great Basin will give cause to some very strong winds in the Sea starting Monday and lasting until Wednesday perhaps Thursday.
In southern California as soon as their freezing and sub freezing temperatures rise on Tuesday it looks like they will have a two day Santa Ana Wind event which with the wind chill it won’t feel much warmer.
Looking now over to the southwest where widespread hard freeze conditions occurred last night. It should remain dry over the southwest through the middle of next week, except for the White Mountains where they could see a light dusting of snow today and Monday. High pressure will return mid week with a warming trend into the weekend.
That’s what is gong on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the weekend in general for the Sea looks to be fairly pleasant with mostly moderate winds.
Monday starts a period of very strong winds in the Sea that will last until probably Wednesday when the pressure gradient relaxes between the Sea and the Great Basin. Right now winds to 40 knots are in the long range outlook for the Sea for this period.
Here is what the winds look like for the next 3 days.
For the northern Sea today and tomorrow moderate NW and Monday picking up to around 30.
The central Sea moderate today, Brisk to around 20 tomorrow and Monday around 30+.
The southern Sea the 20k winds continue from La Paz south to along the East Cape for today and tomorrow, picking up to around 30 knots on Monday.
The outside passage looks like the southen half of the passage will seee ballpark 20k winds over the next 3 day. The northern half in general moderate winds over the nxt 3 days..
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan strong winds today to perhaps 27 and then around 20 Sunday and Monday. From there south the winds go from moderate to light around Zihuatanejo for the next 3 days.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea has become overcast overnight. All those clouds that are out the Eastern Pacific basin started moving east in earnest late yesterday afternoon and last night.
This morning the entire Sea has a blanket of a mix of whispys and some serious dark bottomed clouds passing over.
There is no jet stream support so these clouds will SLOWLY move over the top of us today.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where the southern edge of the band of clouds passing over the Sea is reaching as far south as Puerto Vallarta this morning. South of Cabo Corrienties the coast is clear all the way south to Central America.
Taking a look now out along 8N where the ITCZ/Monsoon trough is snaking along this morning. It is still producing a lot of clouds that are moving north up into the Eastern Pacific basin but not quite a much as it has for the past couple of days.
The Tehuantepec is quiet this morning so that’s it for our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America of America where that very cold front is still a headliner.
This morning all the overnight lows along the coast from San Diego to Seattle were in the mid to low 30s. Inland, many locations had frost and freeze advisories.
That cold front is now slowly moving NE out of Utah into Colorado today and has left a pool of very cold air over the west coast and the southwest that will remain in place over the weekend until the high over the Great Basin rebuilds early next week.
The coast and inland will be drying out today, however the Sierras will continue to see snow flurries throughout the weekend.
Southern California will not be exempt for these very cold temperatures. Overnight low in San Diego will be in the low 30s into early next week. Daytime highs in the mid 50s.
Looking now over the southwest where most of the rain and snow will have tapered off by this time this morning with perhaps a few lingering in the White Mountains today. Today and the weekend will be very cold with that arctic air mass settling over the region.
The overnight lows in the southwest will be in the low to mid 20s. Daytime highs in the 40s until mid next week. Bob’s station at Herford was 30 degrees at sunrise this morning.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence this image is showing that the tail end of that slow moving cold front has starting swinging through northern Baja early this morning and will continue to move east this morning reaching as far south as Santa Rosalia, perhaps Concepción Bay, finally exiting the Sea this evening.
If the models are correct a cold air mass will fill in the wake of this system and we could see tomorrow’s sunrise temperatures in the northern and central Sea as much as 15-18 degrees cooler than this morning. We’ll see?
Wind-wise in general it look like today and the weekend the northern and central see will see brisk to strong winds in the 20 knot ranges. The southern Sea around 20 today and mid 20s Saturday and Sunday.
The outside passage strong winds in the mid 20s today for the entire passage. Tomorrow around 20 and Sunday the mid teens.
For the Mexican Riviera today Mazatlan will see 16-20 over the weekend. The Puerto Vallarta area to Cabo Corrienties the mid teens for the weekend. Manzanillo light to moderate SW winds for the next 3 days.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that yesterday afternoon the Sea had a few bands of high whispys pass over. Other then that the skies were pretty much clear all day.
Looking along the Riviera this morning I can see that they have had mostly clear skies for the past 24 hours and the next 24 look about the same.
Looking now at the ITCZ/Monsoon trough this morning where it continues to pour out copious amounts of clouds into the Eastern Pacific basin from an area between around 115W to around 125W. These clouds pretty much blanket the Eastern Pacific basin from just east of Hawaii to the Baja peninsula.
There does not appear to be much in the way of winds in the basin to move the clouds east. Most appear to dissipate as they reach the west coast of the Baja peninsula.
Not all, as this image is now showing. A rather heavy band of dark bottomed clouds are passing over northern Baja into the northern Sea this morning.
Behind it, the clouds are quite thick and I’d imagine that like yesterday scattered bands of these clouds will be passing over the entire Baja peninsula today.
Well, that’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America of America where a vigorous cold front has dropped down from the Gulf of Alaska and moved ashore this morning.
It does not have much of a moisture tap so not a lot of rain and snow will accompany this system. Snow levels will dip as low as 1000 feet in many locations along the west coast today as the front moves through. A couple of inches of snow are forecast for the Santa Cruz Mountains in northern California. The Sierras will also get a dusting.
The main feature of this storm is the cold air mass that will be dragging with it. This morning, from Seattle to San Diego the overnight lows were in the 30s. San Diego will have overnight lows in the low 30s well into the weekend.
Along with these cold temperatures high wind advisories have been posted along the coast from San Francisco to San Diego until tomorrow morning. The winds advisories have also been issued for the California deserts and mountains for today.
Looking now over to the southwest were it remains relatively warm today with a daytime high of around 71. Tomorrow it will drop 20 degrees to around 50, with overnight lows into the weekend in the low 20s.
That cold low passing through to the north will give cause to
strong winds in the southwest. As the front passed later today and
this evening there is a chance of valley rain and higher elevation
snow into tomorrow morning.
In the wake of this system they can expect a cold air mass to
settle over the southwest with hard freeze conditions over the next
several days. It looks like 3-dog nights into the weekend.
That’s what is gong on to the north of us. Back on this side of
the Fence the tail end of that cold front will swing through the Baja
peninsula later today into tomorrow.
There is a chance Baja, and perhaps Baja Sur could see
some sprinkles as this system passes through. It did not start out
with much moisture and there is not much left.
What will happen in the wake of this front the temperatures all
along the Baja peninsula will dip about 10 degrees during the day
and the same for the overnight lows. Those of us in Baja will also be
looking at two-dog nights.
Wind-wise today the sea will see moderate southerlies. In
general tomorrow the moderate northerlies will return and Saturday
The strong northerlies will crank back up again
Here are the details.
Today the northern Sea moderate SW winds. Tomorrow
Moderate NE winds and Saturday just a bit stronger NW winds.
The central Sea, Santa Rosalia to Puerto Escondido moderate
southerlies today, brisk to strong NW tomorrow and strong NW on
Saturday.
The southern Sea today: light to moderate NW. Tomorrow
moderate NW and Saturday strong NW to the low 20s.
The outside passage: The moderate ranges from Turtle Bay
south. Strong NW to 30 knots from Pt. San Quinten north. Today.
Tomorrow mid 20 for the entire passage then sat mostly the moderate
NW winds return.
The Mexican Riviera today: Mazatlan to Manzanillo moderate
NW winds for the next two days. Saturday from Mazatlan to Cabo
Corrienties with winds will pick up to the 17-22 knot ranges.
Zihuatanejo south will see very moderate SW winds over the 3-day
forecast period.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea has been pretty much cloud free for the past 24 hours. It looks like that will change within the next 24 hours as there is a large mass of clouds in the Eastern Pacific basin that need some place to go and they are currently moving slowly in the direction of the Baja peninsula. It looks to me that the Sea should start to see the leading edge of these clouds later this afternoon and overnight. By tomorrow morning I’d expect the Sea to be completely overcast. We’ll see?
Looking now south to the Mexican Riviera where there are a few scattered bands of what look like mostly whispys moving through the region this morning and it looks like that will continue all day.
I expect that the northern portion of the Riviera from Cabo Corrienties north will start to see some cloudiness late tomorrow but today it looks like sunshine all day.
Looking south to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where they will be having mostly light to moderate winds over the 3-day forecast period.
Looking now at the ITCZ/Monsoon trough. I can see that it is continuing to be very active. It is a cloud producing machine, spewing out copious amounts of clouds into the Eastern Pacific basin pretty much filling the basin with multi-level clouds.
Well that’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America of America where is going to get very cold for the rest of the week.
There is a very cold low that will be dropping down from the Gulf of Alaska today arriving first in the Great Northwest where snow levels will drop to around 500 feet later today. It does not have a large moisture tap so the amounts of snow and rain will not be very much.
The Temperatures are the real big item for this storm. In northern California in the bay area snow levels will be around 1000 feet and temperatures will have a hard time struggling to get out of the 40s through this weekend.
Southern California will see one more day of dry and mild weather. Tonight that cold front will arrive along the southern California coast bringing rain and low elevation snow. As the storm moves east on Thursday, in its wake will be a very cold air mass with low temperatures over the weekend possibly producing damaging freezes in the colder valleys.
Looking now over to the southwest where after a cold morning it should warm up today and into tomorrow morning. Tomorrow afternoon that cold front it expected to arrive in the southwest bringing a good chance of valley rain and mountain snow into Friday. As the storm exits to the east late Friday a cold air mass will settle into the southwest giving cause to possible widespread hard freeze conditions in the lower deserts throughout the weekend.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. In a nutshell…cold! Back on this side of the Fence today we will see moderate northerlies, tomorrow moderate southerlies and then Friday its back to the strong northerlies.
Here are the details: The northern Sea today moderate northerlies today, moderate SE winds tomorrow and then Friday it’s back to the moderate northerlies.
The central Sea today brisk northerlies (15-19 knots). Tomorrow moderate SE winds. Then Friday the strong northerlies return.
The northern and central Sea will have a cold front passing through late tomorrow afternoon and evening that will be dragging a cold air mass with it so expect to see colder temperatures Thursday night into the weekend.
The southern Sea today strong northerlies, tomorrow light northerlies and on Friday moderate NW winds from La Paz south along the East Cape.
The outside passage should see moderate winds for the entire passage today picking up a bit tomorrow and then on Friday strong NW winds for most of the passage. Pt. San Quinten is forecast to have 27-33 knot winds tomorrow and Friday.
The Mexican Riviera Cabo Corrienties north to Mazatlan today 15-17 northerlies. Tomorrow and Friday more in the 10-12 knot ranges. South of Cabo Corrienties light NW over the 3-day forecast period.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning first with the 24 hour loop I can see that a weak cold front swept through northern and central Baja early last evening. Temperatures dropped from the mid 60s to the mid 50s here in the Cove and we had 1/3 inch of cold rain that lasted about 45 minutes. I also checked Guaymas and Hermosillo and they did not report any rain, so it looks like the Baja side of the central Sea was the only one to see any rain last night.
Presently the IR and water vapor imagery is showing that low moving out of Sonora and up into New Mexico.
The Sea looks to have a few isolated fluffys here and there but in general clear skies.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where there is a lot of cloudiness moving off the ITCZ/Monsoon trough and drifting NE toward the Mexican Riviera this morning. It looks like there will be scattered bands of clouds pass over from around Puerto Vallarta south to Zihuatanejo today. Most will be high whispys but there is also some lower dark bottomed clouds out there that will be drifting towards the coast.
Looking further south to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where there are no warnings in the 3-day forecast period however this morning there were 30 knot winds reported at the Salina Cruz station on the Northern shore of the Gulf early this morning. They are forecast to dip down below 20 later today.
Looking out west along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough I can see considerable cloudiness along the zone all the way out to around 140 this morning. All this convection is drifting north then east toward the Riviera this morning. Most will dissipate before reaching landfall but enough will reach land that we can call it partly cloudy along the Riviera today.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America of America where at the top of this image I can see the storm door is open for the Great Northwest all week long with a series of frontal systems moving though the region bring cold rain and mountain snow.
Northern California will have to wait until Thursday for more rain and snow. Temperatures in the foothills will drop from around 56 today to around 38 as that Thursday cold front quickly moves through northern California.
Looking now to southern California where it will be gusterly today and warm up a bit before the next cold front arrives late Wednesday through Thursday night. It will bring significant cooling and lower snow levels into the weekend.
Looking now over to the southwest where there is a slight chance of showers in southeastern Arizona as that cold front that moved through Baja last night swings through SW New Mexico this morning. Otherwise they can expect to see dry conditions with a warming trend through Thursday. Thursday a strong cold low is forecast to bring gusterly winds, valley rain and mountain snow into Friday. They can expect to see sharply colder temperatures this weekend with the possibly of hard freezes in many locations.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence, in general the Sea today will see 20 knot winds this afternoon. Tomorrow Moderate NW in the mid teens, then on Thursday the winds will swing to the south and the northern and central see will see moderate southerlies on Thursday. The cape region light to moderate northerlies.
The outside passage in general 15-20 today. A bit less tomorrow the back to the 29k ranges on Thursday. Also on Thursday Pt. San Quinten north will see 30+ knot winds.
The Mazatlan area will see around 27 knot winds this afternoon and then back to the moderate ranges tomorrow. The rest of the Riviera will see moderate northerlies over the 3-day forecast period.

My Hughes satellite modem decided to take a “Time-Out” from 4:30 until almost 7am this morning so my weather was hastily put together this morning.
I did not have time to take a look to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence we have a large broken plume of mostly high whispys off the west coast of the peninsula this morning. Right now the plume is over the east cape but earlier this morning it was over Concepción Bay so it is swinging south a bit. The central Sea could see some more cloudiness later in the day but right now it looks pretty much clear.
Wind-wise the northern Sea will be seeing 30 knot winds today and then drop back to the light to moderate ranges for Tuesday and Wednesday.
The central Sea today the further south you go the lighter the winds. It looks like Santa Rosalia is about on the cusp of these high winds. Punta Chivato will see 24 knot winds today however Pt Concepción Bay will only see around 18 and Puerto Escondido 12-15. Tomorrow the central Sea will be around 20 knots and Wednesday back to the moderate ranges.
The southern Sea today around the La Paz area ballpark 20 knots but along the East Cape the mid teens today, picking up to around 20 tomorrow and a bit less on Wednesday.
For the Mexican Riviera, Mazatlan is the only location that wall not have light to moderate winds over the 3-day forecast period. Mazatlan will have light today and around 23 tomorrow and then on Wednesday the mid teens.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea as well as the Mexican Riviera have been pretty much cloud free for the past 24 hours.
There is a rather fast moving cold front moving through southern California this morning and the tail end will swing through Baja today bringing with it some, mostly high whispys into the northern Sea.
Looking out along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough I can see a lot of convection building between 115W to around 140W. These clouds are rising off the zone and drifting NE toward Baja. Most will dissipate before reaching the coast however we should start to see some whispys in the central and southern Sea today.
The Mexican Riviera should continue to be cloud free today.
Looking further south to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where the Gale Force advisory has again been posted. Minimal gale force winds are expected to last until at least early Tuesday morning.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America of America where a trough of low pressure and associated cold front just off the west coast of California will split and the northern half will be bringing wet weather to the low lands and snow to the Cascades today and the southern half will be bringing rain and snow to northern California and the Sierras.
In northern California the snow levels will start around 4000 feet and drop to around 2500 feet as the cold front pushes cooler air in.
A stronger system is forecast to arrive around Thursday.
Looking now to southern California where that front will swing through today into tomorrow accompanied by numerous rain and snow showers above 3500 feet. It will remain gusterly through tomorrow with small craft advisories posted for the southern coast.
There should be a brief warming period after this front passes then Thursday the next system is progged to arrive.
Looking now over to the southwest where a gradual increase in temperatures will continue today ahead of that approaching Pacific low system. This system will bring increasing cloudiness to the region today followed by cooler conditions and a slight chance of some rain early in the week. Warmer and dry weather will redevelop by midweek as high pressure returns to the region. Another low system will bring much cooler conditions and a better chance of rain to the southwest later in the week.
That’s what is gong on to the north of us. Back on this side of the fence it looks like the first part of next week the Sea will see strong winds again, mid week moderate winds, then late in the week the strong winds will again return.
Today the northern Sea will see moderate SE winds. Tomorrow, strong (24-26K) NW winds and then Tuesday back to moderate NW.
The central Sea moderate NW winds picking up to around 20 tomorrow and Tuesday.
The southern Sea is looking at the mid to high teens from the NW
over the 3-day forecast period.
The outside passage most areas will see ballpark 20K today and tomorrow with the exception of Pt. San Quinten where 30K is forecast for this afternoon. Tuesday the winds will be returning to the moderate ranges tip to toe.
The Mexican Riviera should see light to moderate NW winds over the 3-day forecast period with the exception of Mazatlan on Tuesday where 20 know winds are forecast.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez has been cloud free for the past 24 hours.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where they too have had lots of sunshine with no clouds in the region.
This pattern will continue today for both the Sea and the Mexican Riviera.
Looking south to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where the National Hurricane Center downgraded their forecast from yesterday taking down the Gale Advisories. Current models are showing winds in the 25-30k ranges in the Gulf over the weekend with perhaps Monday the winds reaching Gale force again.
Looking out along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough I can see there is considerable more activity along the zone this morning with most of the building convection is between 125 and 140W this morning. It is drifting NNE however without the transport of the southern jet these clouds will just meander out there and dissipate before reaching landfall.
That’s what is going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America of America where at the top of this image a low and associated cold front have moved out of the Gulf of Alaska and are now just arriving in the Great Northwest. This is just the first of several systems that will be bringing rain and snow to the higher elevations for the next week in the Great Northwest.
This system should reach northern California later this afternoon bringing rain to the coast and snow down to 2500 feet over the weekend. This is not a particularly wet system so less than six inches of new snow are forecast for the higher elevations.
That low and cold front will arrive in southern California tomorrow morning and move through the region through the evening hours bringing light to moderate rain. High pressure and warmer temperatures will fill in the wake of this system through Wednesday then a more powerful and colder system is progged to arrive in southern California.
Looking now over to the southwest where they can expect to see warmer daytime temperatures and dry conditions this weekend. That Pacific storm should arrive Monday through Tuesday bringing a chance of valley rain and mountain snow to the southwest. There will be another brief warm up mid week before another storm arrives late next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the strong NW winds will continue throughout the Sea of Cortez this weekend.
Here are the details:
The Northern Sea very moderate today and tomorrow then picking up to the mid 20s on Monday.
The Central Sea will continue to see NW winds in the low to mid 20s today. Tomorrow probably less than 15, then picking back up to the 20s on Monday.
The southern Sea will see ballpark 23k gusts today.
20 knots tomorrow and the high teens on Monday.
The outside passage will have very moderate winds today picking up to around 20 tomorrow and Monday. A bit stronger at the points.
The Mexican Riviera along with abundant sunshine will have moderate winds today diminishing to the light ranges Sunday and Monday.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea has been clear of any clouds over the past 24 hours. Well, there was a light band of whispys that passed over the cape region late yesterday but in general the skies have been clear and it looks like that will continue today. .
Looking south the same is true for the Mexican Riviera.
Further south we have a Tehuantepecker brewing in the Gulf and downstream out into the Eastern Pacific basin. For the duration of this wind event the winds will be around minimal gale force and the event should last through the weekend. Gale warnings are now in effect for the Gulf.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific basin and the ITCZ/Monsoon trough this morning where there is not a lot of activity along the zone this morning. Very little if any convection building along the zone.
The Jet Stream Analysis is showing there is no development of a southern jet so no Pineapple Express in our near future.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America of America where at the top of this image a weak front has moved ashore in northern Washington producing light rain and high elevation snow today. The models are trending toward a wet and active period of weather through early next week for the Great Northwest.
For northern California an approaching low will bring a chance of rain to northern California this weekend.
Then high pressure is progged to build over the Eastern Pacific and into California on Monday and Tuesday. By midweek another trough is forecast to brush across the northern part of the state with little chance of any rain as far south as the Sacramento valley.
That low will slide down the coast and will arrive in southern California on Sunday bringing a chance of rain into the picture into Monday.
High pressure is progged to build over southern California on Tuesday with another low progged to approach later in the week.
Looking now over to the southwest where the cool weather will persist today as a low slowly exits eastward into New Mexico. In the wake of this departing low high pressure will fill in resulting in a warming trend into the weekend with a return to near normal temperatures by Sunday. The next chance of any rain will be early next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence in general the strong winds will be with us for the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the details:
The Northern Sea will see their strongest winds today and they will be ballpark 20K. Tomorrow and Sunday with NW winds should be in the mid teens.
The central Sea will see the mid 20s today and tomorrow before dipping to 16-20 knot ranges on Sunday.
The southern Sea. La Paz and the East Cape around 20 knot NW today picking up to around 23 tomorrow and Sunday.
The outside passage the entire passage should see very moderate NW winds today and tomorrow then Sunday the winds will pick up to the 25-30 knot ranges.
The Mexican Riviera light to moderate northerlies over the 3-day forecast period with today the lights winds. Tomorrow and Sunday in the mid teens.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez has had mostly clear skies for the past 24 hours. This morning there are some high cirrus, whispys, moving in from the Pacific. They look to be fairly high so it looks like we will continue to have another good solar day in Baja.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where the last of that Pineapple Express moved over the Mexican Riviera last night. This morning the far southern end of the Riviera around Zihuatanejo and Acapulco will see some clouds that should clear by mid morning and the entire Riviera should see abundant sunshine today.
Further south at the Gulf of Tehuantepec the next Tehuantepecker is expected to start tomorrow morning with winds peaking around 35 knots and Seas around 13 feet. The event is expected to persist through the upcoming weekend.
Looking over at the ITCZ/Monsoon trough and bringing up the Jet Stream Analysis it showed another southern jet forming; however right now there is not a lot of convection along the zone for it to shuttle northeast. So it’s pretty much shooting blanks this morning.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America of America where a weak cold front will approach the Great Northwest and the extreme northern California coast with a few light showers today. The Great Northwest will have off and on rain into the weekend.
The rest of northern California will be dry today and tomorrow. An approaching low could bring rain chances to the area over the weekend.
Southern California under high pressure will continue to have clear skies, mild days and cold night today and tomorrow.
Saturday afternoon though Monday morning a low system is forecast to move SE down the California coast then inland over the weekend. Small craft advisories will be in effect during part of this period. Thunderbumpers are also a possibility through Monday morning.
Looking now over to the southwest where it should be clear and cold today and tomorrow in western and central Arizona. A weak system has moved up from Mexico and along the Arizona/ New Mexico border that will bring some snow flurries and light rain tonight and tomorrow morning to that area.
The next chance of any rain in southwest Arizona is around next Tuesday.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like these strong winds will be with us throughout the 3-day forecast period. Long range it looks like a short reprieve on Monday then the Strong northerlies return next week.
Today the northern see will see NW winds in the high 20s. Friday and Saturday the low 20s.
The central Sea is forecast to see NW winds in the mid 20s for the 3-day forecast period.
The southern Sea building slightly over the next three days. Today around 20, tomorrow 21, and sat the forecast of for 23 knot winds along the East Cape. The La Paz area should see about the same thing.
The outside passage should continue to see moderate NW winds over the 3-day forecast period.
The Mexican Riviera should see light to moderate winds over the 3-day forecast period with today seeing mostly light southerlies.
Temperatures in the Sea of Cortez will continue to be January chilly with daytime highs in the mid to high 60s. The afternoon wind chill make it feel like the low 50s. Overnight lows in the low 50s.
The Riviera will see daytime highs today in mid 70s to the low 80s.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Pineapple Express has been bringing a long plume of moisture laden clouds to the extreme East Cape and the Mexican Riviera south to around Zihuatanejo for the past 24 hours.
This morning’s Jet Stream Analysis is showing the southern jet diminishing in size overnight, shortening, and no longer picking up the tropical moisture along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough this morning. There is still some moisture laden clouds in this shortened plume, however it looks like most of the heavy stuff has passed to the east and the Mexican Riviera will continue to see a lot a passing clouds this morning, however by later this afternoon there should not be much left of the plume. At least that’s the way it looks to me right now.
The Sea of Cortez should remain pretty much cloud free for at least the next 24 hours.
Looking now to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where it remains fairly calm in the Gulf this morning the models are showing the next wind event to start Thursday morning and persist through Saturday. The NAM model is showing the winds reaching gale force early Friday morning and peaking around 40 knots on Saturday morning.
Taking a peak at the ITCZ/Monsoon trough this morning I can see that there is very little activity along the zone this morning. No thunderbumpers at all. The only thumper in this image is a couple hundred miles west of Zihuatanejo this morning. That should dissipate before reaching landfall.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America of America where strong high pressure looms over the entire western conus this morning and it looks like high pressure will remain over the Great Basin all week and into the weekend.
Looking at the top of this image the Great Northwest can expect to see mostly clear skies until late in the week when they could see a little rain into the weekend.
Northern California can expect a dry cold week with many locations seeing freeze advisories posted during the week. San Francisco will see temperatures in 30s and the inland valleys will drop to the mid 20s this week.
Southern California will also be dry and cold this week with afternoon temperatures only starting to rise later in the week. Next weekend the models are showing the possibility of a low moving into the southland bringing a chance of some rain.
Looking now over to the southwest where it will be just a bit warmer today however the deserts are still seeing overnight lows in the 20s. It should start to warm later in the week into the weekend.
There is a possibility of a few sprinkles or snow fluffys near the New Mexico state line Thursday night and Friday, otherwise the state should stay dry well into next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like these strong northerlies will be with us into the weekend.
Today and tomorrow the northern Sea will see strong NW winds in the high 20 knot ranges. Friday it looks like the low 20s.
The central Sea the low to mid 20 knot ranges for the entire 3-day forecast period.
The southern Sea 18-23 knot gusts in the afternoons for the 3-day forecast period.
Overnight low temperatures in the Sea ranged from the mid 40s to the mid 50s last night. Highs yesterday were in the mid 60s to the low 70s. However the wind chill made it feel like the mid to low 50s.
The outside passage will have very pleasant sailing weather over the 3-day forecast period with moderate NW winds in the mid teens. Good time to make a north/south passage.
The Mexican Riviera will continue to see some cloudiness diminishing later today. There was rain reported yesterday and last night along the Riviera. The most was recorded at Puerto Vallarta with 2 ½ inches of rain yesterday and .8 inches of rain since midnight.
The Riviera can expect to have light to moderate winds over the next 3 days. Mazatlan to Cabo Corrienties today NE, tomorrow SE, and Friday back to the ENE moderate winds. South of Cabo Corrienties: moderate NW today, moderate SW tomorrow and WSW on Friday. Temperatures in the mid 80s all along the Riviera this afternoon.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the southern jet, aka the Pineapple Express is still picking up a lot of tropical moisture out of the ITCZ/Monsoon trough and transporting it toward the southern end of the Baja peninsula and the northern Mexican Riviera again this morning.
I had expected to see at least a few reports of rain showers but non popped up this morning for the past 24 hours.
This morning the plume extends from around Las Mochas south to Manzanillo with Zihuatanejo being on the very southern edge. There is some scattered thunderbumper activity within this plume as is approaches the coast and I’d expect to see reports of scattered showers today from the East Cape south.
From the East Cape north in general the skies are fairly clear with only isolated patches of fluffys hear and there.
There is a band of whispys that have been moving down the southern California coast overnight and have now turned east and are drifting over the far northern Sea. It looks like the far southern edge of this plume could reach Santa Rosalia later this morning before passing over to the east and Sonora this afternoon.
Further south the Tehuantepec is quiet this morning and the models are showing the next wind event will start Thursday into Saturday.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America of America where the entire west coast is drying out after about a week of wet systems passing through.
With high pressure building over the western conus this morning the west coast will remain cold and dry today into the weekend with many locations having frost for freeze advisories out this morning. As the week wears on the temperatures will rise slowly, only a few degrees a day, reaching seasonal norms by the weekend.
Looking now over to the southwest where the few locations of light valley rain and mountain snow ended last night and they too will be drying out into the weekend with a gradual warming trend.
So after a week of storms along the west coast the coast as well as the interior are drying out this morning and it looks like the first week of 2013 will be dry to the north of us.
Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the entire Sea will be seeing strong NW winds over the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea today low 20s today, High 20s tomorrow and back to the low 20s again on Thursday.
The central Sea will be in the mid to high 20s for the 3-day forecast period.
The southern Sea 19-23 NW winds over the 3-day forecast period.
For the outside passage Cedros and inside of Turtle Bay will see 18-20 today but the rest of the 3-day forecast period the entire passage will be in the mid teens.
The Mexican Riviera today Mazatlan and Manzanillo will see 14-17 knot winds today then the next 3 days light northerlies. The rest of the Riviera light mostly northerlies over the 3-day forecast period.
