.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the southern jet is still strong and transporting a lot of clouds toward the Baja peninsula again this morning giving us those postcard sunrises. The IR imagery is showing most of the moisture in the plume has dried up by the time it reached the peninsula and this morning I can see broken bands of mostly whispys passing over the Sea, mainly in the central Sea.
Looking south I can see a few stringers passing over Puerto Vallarta and Cabo Corrienties area but sunshine will be the order of the day for the Riviera today.
Further south the honeymoon will be over tomorrow for the Gulf of Tehuantepec with a significant winds event on tap for this weekend. First gale force winds on Saturday and Storm force winds on Sunday.
Looking west there is still a lot of convection building along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough mainly from around 120 out to 140.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the northern jet is feeding tropical moisture to the current Pacific storm that is moving through the Great Northwest this morning. More rain and snow to the region extending south as far as just north of the Bay Area.
The rest of northern California will remain dry for throughout the weekend.
High pressure off the southern California coast will continue to bring breezy winds and a warming trend to the southland through Saturday with well above normal temperatures expected both days.
A cooling trend will begin Sunday with the approach of the first of several lows moving in from the Pacific. Bringing a chance of rain by mid week.
Looking now over to the southwest where under high pressure temperatures will continue to edge into the lower 80s by Saturday and Sunday across the lower deserts. These conditions should last until mid next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence these gale force winds will continue to be with us for a couple more days. Right now Saturday continues to look like the end of this week-long blow with Sunday starting a period of pleasant weather and winds for the Sea of Cortez.
Here are the details for the wind for 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: 26-29 today and tomorrow, and the mid teens on Saturday.
The central Sea: 35-38 today and tomorrow and around 20 knots on Saturday.
The southern Sea: La Paz and the East Cape around 30 knots today and tomorrow and the mid teens on Saturday.
From Mazatlan to Guaymas along the Sonoran coast: ¼ of the way from Mazatlan to Guaymas today around 20 and light tomorrow and Saturday. From the half way point north to Guaymas the winds will increase as you go north increasing from around 30 to 37 in Guaymas today. Diminishing to the mid 20s on Friday and Saturday.
OF note: Starting this morning this stretch along the Sonoran coast will be available via saildocs. Use “Sonora” in your request. If you are unfamiliar with receiving my reports via saildocs you can email me at bajageary@ gmail.com and I’ll send you the instruction sheet or you can pick up the instructions on the Sonrisanet web page.
Sonrisanet.org.
Now the winds along the Riviera: Mazatlan ballpark 20 knots for the 3-day forecast period. Puerto Vallarta around 20 today, and light NW Friday and Saturday. Cabo Corrienties mid teens today and diminishing to less than 10 from the NW on Friday and Saturday. South of Cabo Corrienties moderate SW winds for the next 3 days.
Temperatures continue to climb. This weekend we should start to see temperatures the 80s again and that would really be nice. I’m a bit tired of these high winds and the wind chill.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the southern jet is still strong and extends well into the western tropics. It is picking up abundant moisture from along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough and transporting it over the Baja peninsula.
Last night and early this morning there was a break in the plume and there was a period of clearing over most of the Sea. As of sunrise the skies were clear over Concepción Bay but this image is showing the plume thickening to the west of the peninsula and it looks like the skies will again be overcast with these high whispys today. Within the plume there is also a mix of rather heavy multi-level clouds that are packing a lot more moisture so the high haze could turn to solid overcast at times during the day.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera it looks like the thousand mile wide plume will be to the north of the Riviera today and abundant sunshine is in their forecast.
Further south the Gulf of Tehuantepec will continue to see winds in the 20-25 knot ranges for the 3-day forecast period. Right now it looks like a wind event could happen this weekend though.
A quick look out into the Eastern Pacific basin along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough I can see considerable convection building from around 120 out to around 140 this morning.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the weather keeps rolling through the Great Northwest bringing rain and snow to the region. The forecasters are saying that next Monday could be a dry, no umbrella day. They might declare a holiday.
Northern California will remain dry into the weekend.
In Southern California high pressure will bring breezy offshore winds and a warming trend through Saturday with well above normal temperatures expected by the end of the week.
A more significant cooling trend will start on Sunday due to a low moving onshore.
Looking now over to the southwest where a ridge of high pressure positioned off the west coast will move east resulting in a gradual warming trend with afternoons highs above average this weekend with temperatures near or above the 80 degree mark on the lower deserts. A weak disturbance will then move across the state Sunday night into Monday resulting in a slight chance of light showers in the higher terrain.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the Sea will be seeing these strong winds into the weekend with Sunday looking like the first day with moderate winds again. The central Sea will be seeing the strongest winds during this period.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea 25-30 knot winds over the next 3 days.
The central Sea around 32 today picking up to around 37 tomorrow then back to around 35 on Thursday.
The southern Sea La Paz and the East Cape around 25 today picking up to around 30 tomorrow and back to 25 on Thursday.
The outside passage will continue to see 18-25 knot NW winds for the next 3 days.
And new to my weather a summary of the winds along the Sonoran coast from Mazatlan to Guaymas: Moderate winds in the mid teens from Mazatlan south to around Topa La Bomba today. Tomorrow 20-24 and then Thursday back to the mid teens. These charts will soon be available on the website and available for Saildoc retrieval.
Topa la Bomba south to Guaymas 25-30 for the 3-day forecast period.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan: mid to high teens over the next 3 days. Puerto Vallarta to Cabo Corrienties the mid teens from the NW for the 3-day forecast period. South of Cabo Corrienties light to moderate SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
Temperatures will continue to rise and right now it looks like the weekend we could be seeing temperatures in the high 70s and the 80s in the cape region.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the broad plume of the Pineapple Express continues to bring mostly high whispys from around the bay of LA south to the cape this morning.
A separate weaker plume is bringing some cloudiness to the Cabo Corrienties area this morning.
The Jet stream analysis is showing the southern jet to continue to be strong with around 150 mph winds aloft. There is abundant moisture along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough and in the Eastern Pacific basin for transport toward Baja this morning. So it looks like more of what we had overhead yesterday for today.
The Gulf of Tehuantepec remains relatively quite this morning with ballpark 20 knot winds for the 3-day forecast period.
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 continues to see system after system move in from either the Gulf of Alaska or the northern Pacific bringing rain and snow to the region.
Northern California is forecast to remain dry and cold for the next couple of days. Last night the overnight low in Sacramento was 36 degrees and it should warm up there to around 70 today. It’s warmer here in Baja.
For Southern California the off shore flow and a building ridge of high pressure will result in a warming trend through the end of the week. Temperatures will be well above normal Thursday through Saturday then will likely return to near normal by early next week as low pressure approaches from the west.
Looking over to the southwest where the morning will start off cold. It was 29 at Herferd and 36 at Tucson. A slow warming trend is expected beginning today and continue through the weekend. Temperatures will rise to near normal by Thursday and be at or near the 80 degree mark throughout next weekend.
It’s nice to see someplace getting warmer. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like February wants to go our like a lion. It looks like these strong winds in the central Sea will be with up through Saturday. I know that’s long range for me but most of my charts are showing that Sunday will be the first day with winds less than 20.
Here are the details for the winds for the 3-day forecast period
The northern Sea around 20 knot today then 25 for Wednesday and Thursday.
The central Sea around 20 today then high 20s tomorrow and the mid to high 30s on Thursday.
The southern Sea: La Paz today mid teens, mid 20s tomorrow and around 30 on Thursday. The East Cape ballpark 20 today mid 20s tomorrow and around 30 on Thursday.
Of Note: One of the bloggers in La Paz said that all ports in the Sea of Cortez would be closed to boats under 500 tons today and most likely until this weekend. It’s very dangerous out there with seas between 7 and 8 feet. Good time to stay in port or on the hook.
Along the Sonoran coast from Mazatlan to around Topa la Bomba today and tomorrow mid teens and Thursday around 25. South of Topa la Bomba to Guaymas around 22 today, 25 tomorrow and then on Thursday the mid 30s.
The Mexican Riviera Mazatlan to Cabo Corrienties mid to high teens from the NW for the next 3 days. South of Cabo Corrienties moderate SW winds.
Daytime highs in the Sea today will struggle to make it to 70. over night lows continue to be in the mid 50s for most locations in the Sea.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see the southern jet, aka our Pineapple Express has widened and will by later this morning be bringing some cloudiness to the central Sea as will as far south as Manzanillo.
The jet stream analysis is showing the southern jet originating in the western tropics and passing through the ITCZ/Monsoon trough picking up abundant moisture there and transporting it toward Baja at around 150 mph this morning.
There is considerable convection building along the zone this morning so there will be no shortage of clouds to transport.
The current satellite IR image is showing a very wide plume of multi-level clouds moving across the Eastern Pacific basin toward Baja. The ragged leading edge of this plume is just starting to pass over the peninsula this morning and I can see several whispy plumes passing over the Sea already this morning. Behind it the main body of the plume is pretty much solid so it looks like by later this morning we should have pretty much sold overcast with a mix of fluffys and whispys.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera the plume is moving through the southern crossing this morning and it looks like the Mexican Riviera from Mazatlan south to just south of Cabo Corrienties will be seeing periods of cloudiness today.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America of America where system after system is moving through the Great Northwest bringing rain and snow to the region.
The system this morning could bring some light rain to extreme northern California but the rest of the state will remain dry today.
In southern California the pressure gradient between the Great Basin and the coast will keep the southland breezy until later in the week when high pressure will build over the west coast
Temperatures will warm a few degreesin the southland during the week.
Looking now over to the southwest where it wall be chilly this morning with a low system exiting to the NE. To the east of Tucson many areas will have temperatures below hard freeze levels. It will remain cold for a few more days before starting to warm up later in the week. By mid next week it the Tucson area is expected to see temperatures in the 80s. That’s a long ways from their sunrise Temperature this morning of 34 degrees. It was a chilly 29 degrees at Bab’s place in Herferd this morning.
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 for the entire 3-day forecast period. That and the Pineapple Express bringing cloudiness to the Sea, the el Burro Chamber of Commerce is giving the next 3 days one crummy star.
Here are the details for the winds for the next 3 days.
The northern Sea: NW winds in the 19-23 knot ranges for the 3-day forecast period.
The central Sea: NW winds in the 27-32 knot ranges for the next 3 days.
The southern Sea will see their strongest winds today with 30 knot winds from the NW. Tomorrow and Wednesday the La Paz and East Cape will see NNW winds in the 19-23 knot ranges.
The outside passage looks like ballpark 18-22 for the entire stretch for the 3-day forecast period.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan 20+ knot winds today and the mid teens Tuesday and Wednesday.
Puerto Vallarta to Cabo Corrienties NNW winds in the mid teens for the next 3 days. South of Cabo Corrienties very moderate SW winds.
Full moon tonight.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the northern and central Sea are pretty much cloud free.
In the cape region they have had mostly clear all nigh however they will start to see some cloudiness starting early this morning.
These clouds are within the plume of the southern jet this morning and are a mix of mostly dense middle level and high whispys. Showers are a possibility in the extreme cape region this morning.
This plume originates in the western tropics SW of Hawaii today and there appears there is abundant moisture building along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough this morning and this 130 mph jet is transporting it toward Baja.
I’d not be surprised if later today, perhaps this evening and tomorrow the plume spreads out to include the central Sea as well.
We’ll see?
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera it looks like from Mazatlan south to Cabo Corrienties will also see this mix of these middle level and whispys pass over starting this morning. There is a lot of moisture in these clouds so there too exists the possibility of sprinkles or showers.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now to the west coast of America where at the top of this image I can see the storms lined up in the northern Pacific and the Gulf of Alaska. The storm door is open and there will be system after system move through the Great Northwest this week bringing snow to Washington and northern Oregon.
Extreme Northern California could see a little rain today but from San Francisco south its clear skies and a short lived warming trend today. Tomorrow a system will drop down from the Gulf of Alaska into the Great Northwest. No rain or snow is forecast in northern California but it will cool things off until the storm passes late Monday. Tuesday northern California should start to see a warming trend well into met week.
In southern California high pressure in the 1032 ranges over the Nevada plateau and low pressure in the 1015 ranges in the south will give cause to gusterly condition in the southland continuing into Wednesday. Gusts to 70 mph are expected in the canyons and passes over the next couple of day until high pressure in the Pacific moves over the state about mid week.
Looking now over to the southwest where a mostly dry cold front will dip down from the Great Basin early this morning. A few snow showers are expected in the northern portion of the state. The only real affect will be that it will cold and windy especially in the western deserts and the Lower Colorado River Valley where 40 mph winds are expected. The low will exit to the east during the day today and tonight.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the tail end of that cold front will sweep though Baja today keeping the temperatures on the cool side in the Sea today.
The pressure gradient between the southern Sea of Cortez and the Great Basin will keep the small craft advisories in the forecast until a brief break on Wednesday.
Here are the details for the winds for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea 30 knot NW today then in the mid teens for Monday and Tuesday.
The central Sea from San Francisqito south to Puerto Escondido. Mid 30 knot winds today. High 20s tomorrow then around 20 knots on Tuesday.
The southern Sea La Paz and the East Cape. Light today building to around 30 tomorrow and then Tuesday back to the mid teens.
The outside passage a bit less than 20 for most of the passage over the next 3 days. A bit higher in the Cedros and Turtle Bay area,
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan moderate today and Tuesday and around 20 knots tomorrow. Puerto Vallarta south to Cabo Corrienties 11-16 over the 3-day forecast period. South of Cabo Corrienties very moderate westerly’s.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that most of the Sea is clear of any cloudiness this morning. In the cape region there has been broken plumes of mostly whispys that have been passing over that are for the past 24 hours. That should continue today.
The southern jet, aka the Pineapple Express extends from the western tropics SW of the Hawaiian islands, crosses the Sea of Cortez, the Gulf of Mexico and ends up along the eastern seaboard of the United States.
The upper level speeds are about 115-120 knots. The water vapor imagery and this image is showing a lot moisture in the Eastern Pacific basin however the jet appears to just be transporting the higher clouds this morning, Whispys.
That’s what is gong on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America the storm door is open for the Great Northwest. Systems, small and large continue to move in from the north Pacific bringing rain and snow to the Great Northwest and into the midwest.
This latest system will just brush northern California today bringing temperatures down and light snow fluffiest in the Sierras. Placerville was 25 degrees this morning and Southlake Tahoe was 9 degrees.
The forecast for northern California to the end of the month is for dry conditions with a warming trend as high pressure builds over the region.
Southern California will be having strong winds over the weekend due to the gradient between the coast and the Nevada Plateau. A strong Santa Ana wind event is forecast for tonight and tomorrow with winds to 45 mph with winds to 65 mph in the passes and canyons. There will be weaker winds on Monday night through Tuesday then another round of gusterly conditions late in the week.
Looking now over to the southwest where tomorrow a low dipping down from the Great Basin will just brush northern Arizona and bring a few show showers to the White Mountains. The rest of the state will be cold and windy throughout the weekend. A warming trend is forecast to begin early next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence there will be buffalos romping around the Sea over the 3-day forecast period. Next week does not look to promising either.
Small crafts advisories for the central Sea over the weekend. Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea today moderate winds, picking up tomorrow to around 30 knots and on Monday the high 20s.
The central Sea ballpark 20 knots today, 30+ knots tomorrow and perhaps a tad less on Monday.
The southern Sea moderate winds today, light NW tomorrow and the mid 20s on Monday.
The outside passage ballpark 20 knots over the 3-day forecast period.
The Mexican Riviera Mazatlan to Cabo Corrienties moderate NW today and tomorrow picking up just a few knots on Monday. South of Cabo Corrienties light SW for the next 3 days.
There should be abundant sunshine in most of the Sea over the weekend, however the wind chill will make it seem a lot colder, down to the low 60s high 50s. Temperatures over the weekend will struggle to make it to the 70s. Over night lows will be in the low to mid 60s.
The Riviera will continue to enjoy highs in the mid 80s over the weekend.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the southern jet is reestablishing its self, streaming from the western tropics toward the cape region. It is picking up mostly high cirrus along with a few wet cells along the way. Early this morning there was a wet plume passing over the La Paz area.
Right now it looks like a broken and rather scattered plume will be passing over the cape region and as far south as Cabo Corrienties today. This jet is rather weak and could collapse so I’m a bit iffy about tomorrow but I’d expect to see this region will see passing clouds all day today.
To the north of La Paz and to the south of Cabo Corrienties the skies look to be clear this morning.
Looking out along 7N this morning at the ITCZ/Monsoon trough I can see there several areas where thunderbumpers are working this morning.
The Gulf of Tehuantepec is experiencing very moderate wind this morning and that’s the forecast for the 3-day forecast period.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where off the west coast of British Columbia there is a big honk’n low that will be descending into the Great Northwest today bringing heavy snow to the mountains in the region. Dropping about a foot today over 4000 feet as it moves southeast during the day.
Extreme northern California will see some rain as this system passed mainly to the north. San Francisco south will continue to be dry pretty much though the end of the month, so sayith the weather folks up there.
Southern California will also be dry throughout the weekend. That system that is bringing snow to the Great Northwest today will drop down into the Great Basin tomorrow and the gradient will give cause to strong winds in southern California over the weekend. With high pressure forecast to rebuild early next week they should see a warming trend starting early next week.
Looking now over to the southwest where a trough of low pressure is moving out of the region into Wyoming. As to exits there is a chance that there will be a few light snow showers in the White Mountains. Drier air will overspread the region into the weekend when that pacific storm drops down into the Great Basin on Sunday. As far as any snow, that will take place in northern Arizona around Flagstaff. The effect in southwest Arizona will be gusterly winds late Saturday and Sunday. A slow warming trend is anticipated Monday through the middle of next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the central Sea will see strong winds to 20 knots today through the weekend.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: moderate NW today and tomorrow then gusting to 30 knots on Sunday.
The central Sea will see ballpark 20 knot afternoon winds for the entire 3-day forecast period.
The southern Sea Puerto Escondido south will see 20 knot winds today and tomorrow then Sunday light to very moderate NW winds around La Paz and the East Cape.
The outside passage will see strong 20+ knot winds at the points Abreojos and Pt. San Quinten and the rest of the passage in the mid to high teens over the next 3 days.
The Mexican Riviera moderate NW winds in the 12-15 knot ranges from Mazatlan to Cabo Corrienties. South of Cabo Corrienties mostly light winds from the southwest.
It wont’ be warming up much over the weekend. Temperatures will be mostly in the mid to high 60s in the Sea. Mid 80s along the Mexican Riviera.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Pineapple Express has dried up and the bulk of clouds in the Eastern Pacific basin are just moving from west to east with the normal flow in the basin without the steerage of the southern jet.
This morning there is a plume of clouds that is passing over the cape region to around Cabo Corrienties. Within this plume there are several areas with showery conditions that are south of the cape and west of Cabo Corrienties and that area could see some sprinkles as the plume passed over.
It looks like these conditions will last for at least the next 24 hours.
The Sea this morning north of La Paz looks to be pretty much clear of any cloudiness however there is an abundance of cloudiness in the Eastern Pacific basin west of the peninsula and I’d not be surprised to see light bands of whispys passing over the Sea from time to time today.
Looking out along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough I can see there is very little in the way of any building convection this morning.
No advisories for the Gulf of Tehuantepec for the next 3 days.
So 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 some rain and high elevation snow as Pacific moisture continues to stream into the region.
In northern California dry conditions will prevail until Friday night into Saturday when they could see some more light rain.
Southern California could see a few light showers today otherwise it will be windy and cold with areas of frost expected this morning then a warming trend will begin today with more significant warming occurring later this weekend through early next week.
Looking now over to the southwest where that weather system that brought snow to the lower deserts yesterday has shifted into New Mexico. A much weaker system from the northwest will bring a slight chance of light showers this afternoon and evening to the lower elevations, with better chances in the higher elevations. Another system dropping down from the Great Basin this weekend will bring some more rain and snow to mainly northern Arizona. Southwest Arizona will be quite gusterly over the weekend from this system. A warming trend will begin early next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the Sea will have winds in the moderate ranges today and then tomorrow and the weekend will be gusterly to around 20 knots.
With no steerage from the Pineapple Express clouds will continue to drift over the cape area south to around Cabo Corrienties for the next 24 hours.
The Sea will probably see some whispys but otherwise good solar days.
Here are the details for the winds for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: moderate SE winds today, strong to 20 knots tomorrow and light NE on Saturday.
The central Sea: moderate NE today then strong to 20 tomorrow through the weekend.
The southern Sea: La Paz and the East Cape moderate NW today then around 20 knots tomorrow and the weekend.
The outside passage: Pt. San Quinten will be the only spot to have strong winds over the next 3 days. The rest in the moderate ranges, mid to the high teens.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan to Cabo Corrienties mid to high teens from the NW. South of Cabo Corrienties light to moderate SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
The stretch from just north of Mazatlan north to just short of Guaymas along the Sonoran coast moderate today picking up to the 18-20 knot ranges tomorrow and Saturday.
As that cold front came through yesterday most of the temperatures in the northern and central Sea only got up to the mid to high 60s yesterday afternoon. Today we should see a slight warming trend in the central Sea. The southern peninsula will climb to the mid 70s today.

73s Y’all

Sea of Cortez Weather for 02/120/13

By: Geary, 1:02 PM GMT on February 20, 2013

Monday, June 25, 2012

Just a few quick lines before I take Sonia to the airport this morning.
Cold front coming through Baja this morning bringing a chance of sprinkles into the afternoon.
The Pineapple Express has swung to the south and now blanket the cape region with a mix of wet fluffys and higher whispys. The central Sea will see a few clouds from the north as the front moves through this morning but otherwise clear skies.
In general today the northern and central Sea will see ballpark 20 knot winds as the cold front moves through the area, diminishing tomorrow and Friday to mid teens.
…….I watched the Temperature drop from 62 degrees at 4an ti 56 degrees at 6 O’clock as that cold front started through.. It’s going to be chilly today.

Back tomorrow

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that during the night clouds transported by the Pineapple Express began passing over the Baja peninsula.
An area just south of the Hawaiian Islands extending west along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough to around 120 is producing copious amounts of heavy convection. The southern jet, aka the Pineapple Express is picking up these clouds and transporting them directly toward the Baja peninsula this morning at around 80 mph.
A lot of these clouds will loose a lot of their moisture before the plume makes landfall and right now it looks like a mixed layer of clouds are in the plume. So probably a mix of fluffys and whispys toay.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where clear skies are in their forecast for today.
Further south that nasty Tehuantepecker is over with very moderate winds forecast for today. Tomorrow they should see some 20-25 knot winds in the early morning hours, otherwise just moderate winds over the next 3 days.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where just off the coast of Oregon is a 1002 weather-maker low and the associated cold front.
This system will be moving down the coast today bringing light rain and snow down to around 3500 feet in northern California this morning through tomorrow morning.
In the wake of this system on Wednesday northern California will remain cold, with blustery winds and a chance of a lingering shower or two for the rest of the week.
In southern California as that cold system approaches from the NW scattered showers will develop this eveing and become more numerous overnight and tomorrow. Thunderbumpers are possible with heavy downpours, small hail, and heavy snow in the mountains. It will be windy especially in the deserts and mountains. The storm will depart to the east on Wednesday leaving southern California cool and breezy the remainder of the week. Saturday this is also a slight chance of some more rain and mountain snow.
Looking now over to the southwest where the approaching storm will give cause to wind advisories to be posted in several locations around SW Arizona especially around the Lower Colorado River Valley today extending into tomorrow morning.
The storm will move into Arizona Wednesday morning bringing rain and snow down to around 3000 feet before rising again late Wednesday. This storm will produce several inches of new snow with a bit more in the higher elevations. The storm will exit early Thursday morning and leave the southwest cold with unsettled weather for the remainder of the week. The weekend could bring some more rain and snow to the region.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the fence that cold front will be swinging through Baja and the northern and central Sea during the night and early Wednesday morning cooling things down a bit. Thursday’s high temperatures will probably be in the high 60s where today the mid to high 70s.
Wind-wise mostly moderate winds are in the forecast for the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the wind detains for the next 3 days.
The northern Sea today and tomorrow mid to high 20s from the SW then Thursday light to moderate winds from the SE.
The central Sea from San Francisquito Bay to the northern crossing moderate NE today ballpark 18-20 tomorrow from the NW and Thursday very moderate winds from the NE.
For the southern Sea from Puerto Escondido south to La Paz moderate winds today and light winds tomorrow and Thursday.
The East Cape very moderate NW winds over the next 3 days.
The outside passage today ballpark 20K tomorrow with that cold front moving through, ballpark 22-26 for most locations then on Thursday back to the high teens.
The Mexican Riviera moderate winds in the mid teens from Mazatlan to Cabo Corrienties for the next 3 days.
South of Cabo Corrienties light SW for the 3-day forecast period.
The stretch between Mazatlan and Guaymas the mid teens for the next 3 days with the exception of the Guaymas area which is forecast to have 18-24 knot winds tomorrow afternoon.
So it looks like the Sea today will have moderate winds with partially overcast skies. The Riviera abundant sunshine.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the southern jet has rebuilt and stretches from the western Pacific to Baja with 120 knot winds aloft. The only moisture in the basin is well out around 150 and to the west of the Hawaiian Islands. The jet is picking up this moisture but only small bands of high whispys are making it to the Baja coast this morning.
By tomorrow I’d expect to see more mostly whispys but today it looks like abundant sunshine for the entire Sea.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where they too will see abundant sunshine today.
Further south the Tehuantepecker will be winding down today with gale force winds still in the forecast through this morning. Strong winds just below gale force will continue today down stream from the Gulf about 300 miles out along with 6 foot seas. By tomorrow the winds in the Gulf should be in the low 20s and diminish further on Wednesday.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where as advertized a big honk’n low is just starting to move out of the Gulf of Alaska. It will descend down the west coast today bringing rain and snow to the Great Northwest today. It will continue moving south and bring rain and snow to northern California tomorrow and arrive in southern California on Tuesday evening bringing gusterly winds, a chance of thunderbumpers, valley rain and snow to the mountains and high deserts from late Tuesday into Wednesday.
Snow levels for this system will be around 2500 feet in California. As the system exits southern California it will leave a cold air mass in it’s wake with overnight lows in the mid to low 40s.
Looking now over to the southwest where near normal temperatures will continue through Tuesday when that Pacific storm will arrive late Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning. It will not have a lot of moisture left however they can expect some rain and snow down to around 3500 feet.
There will a couple of weaker systems moving through the southwest later in the week bringing a slight chance of some more showers to the region.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like we will have a couple more days of delightful weather. Very moderate winds along with abundant sunshine.
Here are the wind detains for the 3-day forecast period,
The northern Sea: light to moderate today with east or perhaps SE winds. Tomorrow the winds will swing to the NW and be in the 20+ knot ranges for Tuesday and Wednesday.
The central Sea: Moderate in the mid teens for today and tomorrow from the ENE then picking up to around 20 knots on Wednesday.
The southern Sea: La Paz and the East Cape light today and then in the mid teens on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The outside passage today and tomorrow the moderate winds continue then on Wednesday the winds will pick up to the mid 20s.
The Mexican Riviera from Mazatlan to Cabo Corrienties moderate winds in the low to mid teens from the NW. South of Cabo Corrienties the winds should be light and have a southern flavor.
The stretch from Mazatlan to Guaymas mostly in the mid teens from the west today and tomorrow then picking up to around 20 knots on Wednesday.
Temperatures will warm a few degrees today and then later in the week we should see temperatures drop from the mid to high 70s to the high 60s again as that cold front swings through Baja Wednesday and Thursday.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Pineapple Express is a mere shadow of its former self.
There is virtually no activity along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough this morning and not much in the way of any moisture or cloudiness in the Eastern Pacific basin either.
The jet is still there but there is not much out there for it to transport. At best we should see some high whispys passing over today but the order of the day will be sunshine.
The same is true for the Mexican Riviera today.
The only unpleasant weather news for our hood is the Tehuantepecker brewing in the Gulf. The Salina Cruz station on the northern shore of the Gulf of Tehuantepec was reporting 45 knot winds this morning. The National Hurricane Center’s forecast is for storm force winds to continue this morning diminishing to gale force through Monday. Seas to 20 feet are forecast in the Gulf today, and winds to 30 knots extend out of the Gulf into the basin about 250 miles.
That’s what is gong on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where just arriving in the Gulf of Alaska this morning is a big honk’n low that will descend down the west coast early next week and bring rain and snow to both northern and southern California starting Tuesday. This is a cold system however the models are not showing a lot of moisture in it so snow accumulations will only be a couple of inches.
This weekend northern California will remain dry and pleasant.
Southern California will remain pleasant over the weekend with coastal fog developing along the coast.
The Pacific storm will arrive on Tuesday bringing rain and snow to the mountains and deserts and then depart the area on Wednesday. It the wake of this storm a cold air mass will remain over the southland much of next week.
Looking now over to the southwest where dry conditions with above normal temperatures will continue trough Tuesday. Preceding the front will be strong gusterly winds on Tuesday afternoon and evening. The cold front should arrive Tuesday night bringing rain and snow to the higher elevations through Wednesday. Snow levels should drop to around 3500 feet. A couple of weaker systems will bring a slight chance of showers late Thursday and Friday.
Well, that’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the wind gods will smile on us today and long range well into next week.
Today most of the northern and central Sea will see light to moderate southerlies today, then NE or NW the rest of the week.
Here are the details for the winds for the 3-day forecast period.
Today the northern Sea today: Light to moderate SW, light northerlies tomorrow and strong northerlies to the mid to high 20s on Tuesday.
The central Sea moderate winds over the 3-day forecast period, today from the ESE, tomorrow and Tuesday ENE.
The southern Sea, La Paz and the East Cape today and tomorrow mostly light Northerlies picking up to the mid teens on Tuesday from the WNW.
The outside passage should see moderate winds in the mid teens for today and tomorrow picking up to the low 20s on Tuesday.
The Mexican Riviera’s weather won’t change much from yesterday with Mazatlan seeing light southerlies today and moderate NW Monday and Tuesday.
Puerto Vallarta moderate NW of the next three days and south of Cabo Corrienties light southerlies.
What a nice way to end a 4 day blow with light to moderate southerlies and lots of sun.
Temperatures should continue to warm up until about mid week then start to turn cold again.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see the Pineapple Express has shortened and weakened to about half the speed and length it was yesterday morning. Rather than originate in the western tropics this morning it is picking up moisture from an area of convection around 120 along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough. The plume is now somewhat scattered and not packing those heavy moisture laden clouds like most of yesterday. It looks to me that we will be seeing a mix of whispys and sun today in the Sea.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where it looks like they will be seeing mostly sunshine today.
Further south we have a Tehuantepecker building with a capital T. Storm force winds are building this afternoon in the Gulf in the 50-60 knot ranges. The winds are expected to drop to gale force by tomorrow and early Monday and be in the 30 knot ranges with seas up to 23 feet. The fetch to the west of the Gulf is expected to be out around 250 miles.
You don’t even want to be the same neighborhood until this storm diminishes and the Seas flatten out around mid week.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where up in the Aleutian Islands is the next weather maker low that will affect the entire west coast next week.
Right now high pressure remains the dominate feature over the western conus. It will start to weaken on Monday as that low starts to descend south. By Tuesday morning it should be just off the Oregon/California coast bringing rain and snow down to around 3000 feet in northern California.
In the meantime it will continue to be warm and dry in northern California.
In southern California it will also remain fair and warm throughout the weekend. Monday it will start to cloud up and by Tuesday evening that Aleutian storm will arrive and continue through Wednesday bringing rain and mountain snow. Strong winds and steep seas along the coast will arrive prior to the arrival of the front on Monday.
Looking now over to the southwest where dry weather along with above normal temperatures are expected this weekend. That Pacific storm should arrive on Tuesday bringing strong winds to the Colorado River Valley on Tuesday with showers starting to spread east across the region Tuesday night and Wednesday. Snow levels will be around 3000 feet. Thursday will most like be dry and cold as another weaker system is proged to arrive on Friday.
That’s what is happening to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like today will be the last day of these strong northerlies. With the bar over the Great Basin dipping to around 1011 tomorrow the entire Sea should see moderate southerlies. Monday when the gradient stabilizes between here and the Great Basin we should see the return of moderate northerlies well into next week.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea today: 18-19 knot NW then Sunday and Monday very moderate southerlies.
The central Sea today: ballpark 20 knot NW. Tomorrow moderate southerlies in the mid teens. Monday moderate mostly NE winds.
The Puerto Escondido area should see moderate northerlies today and moderate southerlies tomorrow and Monday.
The southern Sea, La Paz and the East Cape moderate northerlies today then light to moderate northerlies on Sunday and Monday.
The outside passage with the exception of Pt. San Quinten which will see around 20 knot over the 3-day forecast period the rest will see NW winds in the mid teens for the next 3 days.
From Mazatlan south to Guaymas will see WNW winds today in the high teens. Sunday and Monday they will diminish to the mid teens.
For the Mexican Riviera Mazatlan should see moderate NW winds in the mid to high teens for the next 3 days. The rest of the Riviera light winds. NW in the Puerto Vallarta area and SW south of Cabo Corrienties.
The overnight lows have creeped up a degree or two in most locations in the Sea and most locations had daytime highs in the mid 70s yesterday. This trend should continue into the weekend.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that most of the Sea is overcast this morning. The southern jet, aka the Pineapple Express is picking up moisture that is pooled along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough out around 130 and transporting it directly over Baja.
Yesterday the Sea had abundant sunshine and then last night the plume started moving over the Baja peninsula. It looks like we can expect to see this plume to be over us for at least the next 24 hours.
This morning the Mexican Riviera is relatively clear of any cloudiness however by later this morning it looks like the plume will also blanket the Mexican Riviera to around Manzanillo. I’m not too sure of the timing on this, but lets say by later this afternoon they should start to see see considerable cloudiness.
Looking south to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where a weak cold front has moved into the isthmus with little fanfare. However a secondary surge of cold air will reinforce the cold front overnight with gale force winds by tomorrow morning and strengthen to storm force by tomorrow night into Sunday morning. These winds will extend out into the Eastern Pacific basin several hundred miles by tomorrow evening.
Looking out along 8N along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough as I mentioned there is considerable convection building in the area around 130 and this pooled moister is lifted by the southern jet and transported toward Baja at around 120 knots.
Well, that’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where high pressure extends from well out in the Pacific to Colorado.
This will continue to keep the west coast dry, sunny and seasonally mild today. These conditions are forecast to last until late Monday night when a cold low will drop out of the Gulf of Alaska and by Tuesday morning northern California will start to see some valley rain and mountain snow down to around 2500 feet.
In southern California a series of lows will begin to move across the region this weekend bringing cooler weather and a return of the marine layer along the coast.
A deeper trough is proged to move through on Tuesday and Wednesday bringing a chance of rain and mountain snow along with gusterly winds.
Looking now over to the southwest where a warming trend will continue across the region as high pressure builds over the desert southwest. This weekend temperatures will exceed the seasonal norms and the highs are expected to reach the mid 70s across the deserts.
Around mid next week temperatures will cool when a cold Pacific low is proged to move across the southwest bringing valley rain, high elevation snow and gusterly conditions.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like we have two more days of these strong winds along with overcast skies.
Here are the details on the winds for the 3-day forecast period: The northern Sea, the high 20s today, low 20s tomorrow and the mid teens on Sunday.
The central Sea: About the same as yesterday in the mid to high 20s. Tomorrow the low 20s and then on Sunday moderate NW winds in the mid teens.
The southern Sea La Paz and the East Cape will continue to see NW winds in the low 20s today. Mid teens tomorrow and Sunday the NE winds will be light.
The outside passage in general moderate winds over the 3-day forecast period except to around Pt. San Quinten where it they should see ballpark 20 knot winds over the next 3 days.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan 11-14 for the next 3 days. Puerto Vallarta south the winds should be in the light ranges and south of Cabo Corrienties have a southern flavor.
Temperatures have continued to climb a degree or two a day in the Sea with many locations breaking the 70 degree mark yesterday, and that should continue today and this evening.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that there is a strong southern jet that has developed in the past 24 hours. Extending from the western tropics and crossing directly over central Baja.
Looking out along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough this morning I can see a large are of building convection between around 115 to 125 along 8 north is morning. It looks like there are a lot of thunderbumpers working within this region. The cloud mass is moving off the zone and being picked up by the jet and transporting a large wide plume of clouds toward Baja. The cape area is just starting to see some whispys from the leading edge. The bulk of the clouds are still several hundred miles west of Baja and with this 120 mph jet it won’t take long for the Baja peninsula to start to see first some whispys then heavier clouds moving over us. By tomorrow we should have full overcast from this Pineapple Express.
It looks like by tomorrow the Mexican Riviera from Cabo Corrienties north will also see some cloudiness however this morning it looks like clear skies all along the west coast of Mexico.
Looking further south to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where northerly winds behind a cold front moving through the SW Gulf of Mexico will squeeze through the Chivela pass and began to generate strong winds in the Gulf today and tomorrow with a short lived Tehuantepecker due on Saturday diminishing on Sunday.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where high pressure off the west coast of California and over the Great Basin has closed the storm door until around the middle of next week. Meantime it will warm slightly over the next several days with clear skies over most of the west coast.
The high in the Pacific is forecast to break down on Tuesday and allow a cold low to bring rain and snow to northern California again.
In southern California it will remain dry with a slight warming trend into Saturday. Sunday a series of lows will move through bringing cooler weather and a thick marine layer to the southern California coast. About mid week another strong low will bring a chance of rain and mountain snow to the southland.
Looking now over to the southwest where a warming trend will continue as high pressure builds over the desert southwest. By the weekend temperatures will exceed seasonal norms with highs expected to reach the mid 70s across the deserts until around mid week when lows arriving from the west will cool things off again.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the good news first. The Sea should continue to see sunshine all morning. This afternoon the clouds being transported by the Pineapple Express will arrive first with high thin whispys then heavier overcast behind that.
The bad news is the strong winds will continue in the 20+ knot ranges into Saturday.
Here are the details on the winds: The northern Sea high teens today, picking up to the high 20s tomorrow then back to the high teens on Saturday.
The central Sea from San Francisquito to Puerto Escondido 23-27 knots for the next 3 days.
The southern Sea La Paz and the East Cape 19-23 today and tomorrow and then the mid teens on Saturday.
The outside passage will continue to see NW winds in the mid to the high teens over the 3-day forecast period.
From Mazatlan north along the Sonoran coast to Guaymas ballpark 20 knots NW over the next 3 days.
The Mexican Riviera from Mazatlan south to Manzanillo mid teens today. Then Puerto Vallarta south should see light winds on Friday and Saturday.
Temperature-wise the overnight lows as well as yesterdays;s highs creeped up a degree or two. We should see the same thing today in the Sea.
The Mexican Riviera will continue to see highs today in the mid 80s.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the southern jet is picking up some moisture from along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough this morning and transporting it over the cape area to around La Paz.
The jet is forecast to weaken today and shift northward. tomorrow. There is some convection building way out on the zone around 140 but the weakened jet will most likely not pick it up and the skies should be clear around the cape later today.

This image is showing the Sea to be mostly feed of any cloudiness this am. That being said I can see some isolated fluffys moving over the peninsula into the central Sea this morning. At 7am there was a big dark one parked over conception bay. Behind it the skies were clear.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera: the skies are clear all the way to South America this morning.
The Gulf of Tehuantepec remains calm this morning and the forecast is for light to moderate winds over the 3-day forecast period.
That’s what’s going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America this image is showing a band of clouds moving in from the Pacific into northwestern Washington this morning however no rain is in their forecast until the weekend
Northern California will also remain dry at least until the weekend with high pressure building off the coast of California.
In Southern California clear skies will prevail through Friday as high pressure builds from the Pacific into the state. It will remain cold in the southland with frost in the wind-sheltered valleys. It will also remain gusterly through tomorrow.
Looking now over to the southwest where a few snow showers should occur through this evening in the Tucson area. It will remain cold through tomorrow when a warming trend is forecast into the weekend. It was 31 degrees in Tucson this morning and should warm up to around 55 today.
Our good friend Bob’s (DLH), in Herferd at 5000 feet, was 19 degrees at 6am this morning. He was also seeing 34 knot winds around noon yesterday.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like day one of a four day blow. Very stung NW winds will funnel down the Sea until Saturday. The long range forecast is still showing next Sunday as the first day with moderate winds in the Sea again.
As I mentioned the Pineapple Express is picking up a little moisture this morning and sending it over the cape region. This should be short lived with not much moisture in the basin and the jet weakening. So I’m calling for sunshine later this morning for the entire Sea of Cortez.
Here are the details for the winds for the next 3 days.
The northern Sea: ballpark 20 knot winds today diminishing just a tad tomorrow and Thursday.
The central Sea San Francisquito to Puerto Escondido today and tomorrow the high 20s and on Thursday the winds should diminish to the low 20s.
The southern Sea: The San Lorenzo channel and La Paz area mid to high 20s today diminishing to the high teens on Thursday.
The East Cape: The high 20s today and tomorrow then the low 20s on Thursday.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan 20 knots today, around 17 tomorrow and diminishing to around 13 knots on Thursday.
Puerto Vallarta to Cabo Corrienties today and tomorrow mid to high teens diminishing to around 10 knots on Thursday.
South of Cabo Corrienties light SW winds over the 3-day forecast period.
Temperature-wise we are starting off with a cold February. The northern Sea’s overnight lows were in the 40s last night. The central Sea the low 50s and the southern Sea the mid 50s. Daytime highs today will be in the mid 60s for the central Sea and high 60s in the southern Sea.
So it looks like the rest of the week will be sunny, windy and with the wind-chill it will feel like the high 40s to the low 50s if you are out in the wind. Most of the Mexican Riviera will continue to enjoy daytime highs in the mid to high 80s over the 3-day forecast period.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning the jet stream analysis is still showing a 90 knot southern jet moving from the western Pacific across the Eastern Pacific basin and passing over central Baja. This jet normally picks up any moisture and clouds in the basin and transports it in its path and we have cloudy conditions over Baja and the Sea.
There is nothing in the way of any clouds along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough or in the Eastern Pacific basin this morning for the jet to transport so we have had mostly clear skies for the past 24 hours over Baja. This image I’m looking at is showing some cloudiness along the west coast of Baja but none is crossing the peninsula this morning. It looks like this condition will last for the next 24 hours.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where it looks like they will also be cloud free for the next 24 hours.
That’s it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where western Washington has weak systems will be moving through the region all week with off and on rain.
In Northern California the models have been hinting at a little rain this week but whether this happens or not it will remain cold all week. Highs in the 60s lows in the mid to high 30s in the inland valleys.
Southern California’s weather will be influenced by a cold low moving through Arizona this morning. They will see some light snow showers over the mountains, decreasing today. Otherwise the rest of the week will be dry and warming after an overnight low of 37 degrees in San Diego this morning.
Looking now over to the southwest where a strong cold front has dropped down from the north and will track across Arizona this afternoon and evening resulting in valley rains possible low elevation snowfall. It will remain cold through tomorrow when a warming trend is forecast to last into the weekend. It was 33 degrees in Tucson this morning. It should warm up to around 56 today.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like we should have one more day of pleasant moderate winds. Tomorrow afternoon strong NW winds will develop over the entire Sea of Cortez. The long range forecast is for these strong winds to last until next Saturday.
Here are the details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea 21-24 knot winds for the next 3 days.
Starting with San Francisquito bay today moderate winds in the mid teens today for the central Sea. Picking up tomorrow to the high 20s.
The southern Sea today, La Paz and the East Cape light to moderate winds today picking up to the high 20s Tuesday and Wednesday.
The outside passage it looks like the mid to high teens, today and tomorrow and then low 20s on Wednesday.
For those folks in the Mazatlan area, the mid to high teens for the 3-day forecast period.
Puerto Vallarta to Cabo Corrienties light to moderate winds today picking up to the high teens on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Along the Sonoran coast between Mazatlan and Guaymas moderate NW winds today in the mid teens. Tomorrow and Wednesday 26-28 knot Northwesterlies.
Temperatures in most of the Sea were in the low to mid 60s yesterday and that’s what the forecast looks like today. Overnight lows ranged from the mid 40 in the northern Sea to the mid 50s in the central Sea to the high 50s in the southern Sea last night.
Even though the wind surfing resorts along the East Cape will be ecstatic with this forecast, the el Burro Chamber of Commerce is given the rest of the week a butt-ugly rating of ½ stars.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that for the past 24 hours this Sea has had rather thick cirrus, whispys, passing over the entire peninsula.
There is a very broad 120-140 knot upper jet in place from 18N-140W that is the culprit. It is forecast to remain stationary for at least the next several days. There is a lot of mostly high whispys out in the Eastern Pacific basin and this southern jet is transporting them toward the peninsula, so it looks like these cloudy conditions will be prevalent for at least into early next week for the entire peninsula.
For those cruisers that are along the Mexican Riviera, Mazatlan may see some cloudiness but the Pineapple Express will miss the rest of the Riviera. Locally foggy conditions may exist but the satellites that I use for this region don’t pick up the fog.
Looking south now to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where very moderate condition are forecast for the 3-day forecast period.
And looking out into the Eastern Pacific basin the cloudiness out there is all high cirrus. There is no convection building along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough this morning.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where there was not one city along the west coast will see 70 degrees today. Most will be in the low 60s.
The Great Northwest will remain dry today then a series of systems will keep Washington and Oregon wet off and on for the rest of the week.
Northern California has high pressure building out in the Pacific that will bring dry conditions to the north state into next weekend. It will however remain quite cold with freezing overnight temperatures in the inland valleys.
Southern California is still under low pressure and it will remain cloudy today with a slight chance of snow showers in the mountain tonight. Chilly weather will continue tonight with patchy frost in the valleys and lower deserts.
As high pressure returns a warming trend will begin tomorrow. It will also be gusterly into Tuesday.
Looking now over to the southwest where dry conditions will occur today except for a slight chance of snow showers across the White Mountains. The next storm will bring a better chance of valley rain and mountain snow tomorrow. Cold temperatures will prevail through tomorrow followed by dry and a warming trend Tuesday into the weekend.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the winds will be pleasant today, picking up a bit tomorrow then butt-ugly through the end of the week.
Here are the 3-day forecast details. The northern Sea today should see moderate SE winds. Tomorrow high teens from the north, then on Tuesday the low 20s from the NW.
The central Sea today very moderate NE winds, picking up to the high teens tomorrow and then the high 20s on Tuesday.
The southern Sea moderate NE today, less than 10 tomorrow from the NE then around 20 knots on Tuesday.
The outside passage it looks like the high teens and low 20s for the next 3 days.
The west coast of Mexico starting with Mazatlan. Today and tomorrow mid teens from the west. Tuesday around 20 from the NW.
The Puerto Vallarta area today less than 10 today, around 10 tomorrow and mid teens on Tuesday.
Cabo Corrienties south should see light SW today then light to moderate NW for Monday and Tuesday.
That’s not all the good news. It’s not going to warm up much this week. It’s very cold to the north of us. Salt lake City was 9 degrees this morning with snow flurries. Bob’s station in Herferd was 25 degrees this morning and Tucson was 35 degrees at sunrise.
None of the locations in the northern and central Sea got up to 70 yesterday. Most were in the low to mid 60s. The cape region only saw the mid 70s. Today will be much the same. The overnight low here in the cove have been averaging about 10 degrees cooler than a normal February.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that that cold low that descended from the Gulf of Alaska has moved east during the night an it looks like it is now centered over northern Arizona and Utah. The tail end of this low is swinging through Baja this morning bringing some mostly whispys to as far south as La Paz this morning.
The models are showing the Sea to have mostly clear skies as the front passes by this afternoon. Checking just a few minutes ago this image is showing the skies over the central Sea to be pretty much clear with just a few fluffys here and there.
The jet stream analysis is showing a southern jet developing overnight from the western Pacific to the central coast of Baja. This jet will be picking up any clouds in the basin and transporting them over Baja for at least the next 24 hours. There are not a lot of clouds in the basin so it looks like mostly whispys will be passing over.
The Mexican Riviera however has been cloud free for the past 24 hours and it looks like that will continue today.
The Gulf of Tehuantepec will be seeing winds to around 24 knots this morning then diminishing to around 10 knot or less tomorrow and Monday.
Looking now out into the Eastern Pacific basin where there is not a lot of activity along the zone this morning, just a few clouds.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where following in the wake of that Pacific storm the west coast will have unsettled weather today and tomorrow then with high pressure building out in the Pacific the forecast is for no storms for next week.
In southern California there will be some lingering showers and even some high elevation snow that will pretty much end by this evening. With the lows over the Great Basin and a building Pacific high southern California will be gusterly all weekend. Next week should see a warming trend into the end of the week.
Looking now over to the southwest where that Pacific storm is bringing rain and snow to the desert southwest this morning. Lingering showers and snow in the higher elevations will last until Monday. It will be gusterly today and tomorrow. I noted that Bob (DLH) in Herferd had a gust up to 44 knots yesterday and was hitting 30 knot early this morning. By mid week the southwest should dry out and see a warming trend into next weekend.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence in general the models are showing moderate winds in the Sea for the 3-day forecast period. Of note; There seems to be some wide variances in the models this morning, however this is what it looks like to me.
The northern Sea should moderate winds today picking up to around 20 knots on Monday.
The central Sea NE winds in the mid teens for the next 3 days.
The southern Sea from around Puerto Escondido south to the East Cape the high teens to the low 20s for today diminishing to the mid teens tomorrow and Monday.
The outside passage ballpark around 20 knots today for the entire passage and diminishing to the high teens for Sunday and Monday.
Mazatlan will continue to see WNW winds in the mid to high teens for the next 3 days and the rest of the west coast of Mexico light to moderate winds from the SW south of Cabo Corrienties.
Overnight low continue to dip in the northern. Daytime highs today will slip back to the low 70s.
The Mexican Riviera will continue to see highs today in the mid 80s.

Sea of Cortez Weather for 02/08/13

By: Geary, 2:21 PM GMT on February 08, 2013


Friday, February 08, 2013


Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez has had another 24 hour of cloudless skies. This morning there are a few whispys passing over the cape area and in the very far northwest corner of the Sea.
There is a low and an associated cold front digging down the coast of California this morning and the northern Sea will start to see some cloudiness from this system as the arrives off the southern California coast later this morning. High whispys have already shown up here in Concepción Bay. The tail end of the low will sweep through northern and central Baja tonight and tomorrow bringing strong winds along the outside and possible light rain to as far as Turtle Bay.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where the skies are clear all the way south to South America this morning.
It looks like the winds will pick up a bit in the Gulf Tehuantepec today and ending tomorrow as a weak front moves through the Gulf of Mexico. Saturday night and Sunday the winds in the Gulf will return to the mid to low teens again.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific basin where there are virtually no heavy clouds in the basin including along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough this morning. There are however a lot of cirrus, high whipsy scattered over the Eastern Pacific basin this morning.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the Great Northwest looks like it has a dry weekend in their forecast.
Off the coast of northern California is a cold low that has descended from the Gulf of Alaska. It will continue sliding down the coast today bringing rain to the valleys and foothills and snow down to around 3000 feet in the sierras in northern California. There could be some lingering showers late Saturday and Sunday. High pressure will return bringing a slow warming trend to the north state. There are high winds along with gale warnings off the northern California coast this morning.
The system will stall over Southern California later today and tomorrow before heading east tomorrow night. Mostly light rain is in the forecast for southern California. The cold front will bring light snow to the mountains and deserts of southern California later today into late Saturday.
This storm will also bring strong winds to the southland and combined with the very high tides coastal flooding advisories have been issued for coastal areas. Seas to 10 feet are forecast and small craft advisories have been posted until tomorrow morning.
Looking now over to the southwest where that storm will bring strong and gusterly winds today along with colder temperatures and a chance of rain and snow showers over the weekend. It will remain cold with a few showers to start next week before a strong warming trend occurs around the middle of the week.
Well, that’s what is happening to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like sunshine for the Sea today with the northern Sea and northwestern Sonora starting to cloud up later today. As the tail end of the front passes over the Baja peninsula and the northern Sea this evening and tomorrow morning the winds will pick up in the Sea to around 20 knots during the day tomorrow then Sunday return to the moderate ranges again.
Not sure how far those clouds will extend down the Sea but it looks like they will be gone by Sunday. The models are not of much help.
Wind-wise here are the details. The northern Sea should see light southerlies for the next 3 days.
The central Sea from around the Bay of San Francisquito moderate northerlies today, picking up to around 20 tomorrow and then Sunday back to the moderate ranges.
From around Puerto Escondido the southern Sea including the East Cape should see light to moderate winds today picking up to the high teens tomorrow then back to the mid teens on Sunday.
The outside passage 19-24 today and tomorrow as that front moves through then back to the mid teens on Sunday.
Mazatlan on the Mexican Riviera will see around 15NW today diminishing a bit on Saturday and Sunday. The rest of the Riviera should see light to moderate winds for the 3-day forecast period. South of Cabo Corrienties the light winds will be from the SW.
Temperature-wise the northern Sea will see daytime highs in mid 60s today. The central see mid 70s and the southern Sea high 70s. Tonight will see the coldest temperatures so far this year with the overnight lows dropping 3-8 degrees from last night.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the only place there was any clouds in the Sea was at the extreme cape region and they only saw some high whispys yesterday. This morning’s image is showing no clouds in that region or the Sea of Cortez.
The Mexican Riviera coast is clear to Central America as well this morning.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific basin it is also pretty much cloud free.
The Gulf of Tehuantepec remains calm and the forecast is for light to moderate winds over the 3-day forecast period.
With not much happening in our hood, looking now north to the west coast of America where there is a very cold weather maker low sitting off the coast of Washington this morning. It is forecast to drop south along the west coast today and tomorrow.
This morning rain is starting the northern California. They can expect to see light rain in the valleys and light snow down to around 2500 feet today and tomorrow.
The system will have moved south by tomorrow night with high pressure filling in the wake.
In southern California it will remain mild and dry today however tomorrow the low and the associated very cold front will have arrived in southern California bringing light rain to the coast and snow to the higher elevations and the deserts. They should see lingering light showers though Sunday morning.
Of note, by the time this system reaches southern California most of the moisture will be gone.
Looking now over to the southwest where it will be dry and mild today with just a few light snow flurries possible in the east central mountains tonight. The Pacific storm will arrive late tomorrow into Saturday bringing gusterly winds, much colder temperatures and a chance of rain and snow showers over the weekend.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks right now that the Sea of Cortez will continue to see moderate winds over the 3-day forecast period. Saturday the winds are forecast to pick up to around 20 along the East Cape but La Paz should stay in the moderate ranges on Saturday.
Here are the details. The northern Sea light to moderate winds for the next 3 days. Today NW,then with a southern flavor tomorrow, then back to the NW on Saturday.
The central Sea in general light to moderate northerlies over the 3-day forecast period. The Guaymas area of the Sonoran coast should see very light westerly winds tomorrow.
The southern Sea from around Puerto Escondido to La Paz will see moderate northerlies today, light SW tomorrow and back to the moderate northerlies on Saturday.
The East Cape will go the full spectrum. Moderate today, light tomorrow and strong to 20 knots on Saturday.
Overnight lows continued to drop a few degrees last night in most locations around the Sea, and the daytime highs yesterday in the Sea also dipped a few degrees from the day before. The exception was the cape where La Paz is starting Carnaval today. They should see 80 again today with the lows this evening in the mid 50s.
In general the highs in the Sea today will be in the mid to high 70s along with abundant sunshine.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the last of that moisture plume that has brought cloudy skies over Baja for the past week passed over the Baja peninsula yesterday afternoon. A few lingering whispys are still passing over but it looks like the Sea of Cortez will be seeing abundant sunshine today.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where a few high whispys are passing the southern crossing early this morning but it looks like the entire west coast of Mexico will be free of any cloudiness by later this morning.
The Gulf of Tehuantepec remains calm this and the forecast is for these conditions to remain over the 3-day forecast period.
Looking out along 8N this morning along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough where there is absolutely no activity along the zone. This image is not even showing a cloud all the way out to the western Pacific. This morning the entire Eastern Pacific basin is pretty much cloud free.
With nothing more going on in our hood, I’m looking now north to the west coast of America where it’s no surprise that the Great Northwest is getting another round of rain and mountain snow today.
This image is also showing that cold low off the coast of Washington that will be dropping down the west coast today through Friday bringing mostly light rain and a dusting of snow to California as low as 2500 feet as It quickly descends south.
Northern California will see temperatures drop as this system moves down the coast tomorrow. Not a lot of moisture in this system so rain amounts will be light.
Southern California will also be affected by the cold air mass that is accompanying this system. Light rain late tomorrow into Saturday with a dusting of snow in the mountains and deserts of southern California into Friday night. It wall remain cold into the weekend then a warming trend is expected into next week.
Looking now over to the southwest where it will remain dry and mild through tomorrow with just a few light snow fluffys possible in the east central mountains tonight. Friday that Pacific storm will arrive on its way up into the Great Basin. It will be cold and cloudy over the weekend with just a chance of a few showers as most of the little moisture the storm had will be gone by then.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the fence it looks like abundant sunshine and moderate winds are in the forecast for today.
Here are the details. The northern Sea light SW winds today and light northerlies for Thursday and Friday.
The central Sea moderate NE along the Baja coast and moderate NW along the Sonoran coast today, then Moderate NW for the entire central Sea Thursday and Friday. A little question mark of the Guaymas San Carlos two models are both showing WNW to 18 tomorrow other wise the entire central Sea is showing moderate winds over the 3-day forecast period.
The southern Sea light winds in the La Paz area today picking up to the mid teens tomorrow and back to light winds on Friday.
The East Cape pretty much NW 12-16 over the next 3 days.
The outside passage ballpark 17-20 for most of the passage today and tomorrow and then picking up to the low 20s on Friday.
The Mexican Riviera along with all that sunshine, from Mazatlan to Cabo Corrienties light to moderate NW and south of Cabo Corrienties light to moderate SW winds for the next 3 days.
Carnaval begins tomorrow in La Paz. It has been cool in the evenings there with overnight lows hovering in the high 50s so keep this in mind if you plan on joining the party goers this week.
As far as the daytime highs. It looks like a typical February day with temperatures in the high 70s for most locations in the Sea today.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning first in the 24 hour loop I can see that without the jet stream support of the clouds moving off the ITCZ/Monsoon trough move slowly north and then catch the west/east flow in the basin and drift toward the Baja peninsula with most of the moisture dissipating by the time they reach land with just the dryer high cirrus left.
Yesterday from time to time most of Baja had these high whispys passing over along with patches of sun.
Off the west coast of Baja there is a broad band of clouds that will slowly drift toward Baja today and I’d anticipate that we will see mostly whispys much like yesterday passing over the peninsula and the Sea. This morning the skies are pretty much clear from the cape to the northern Sea.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where the skies are clear all the way south to South America this morning.
The winds have died over the Tehuantepec isthmus and light winds are forecast the 3-day forecast period for the bay of Tehuantepec. That being said, seasoned cruisers in the region will tell you that there is no safe time to cross the Gulf. The rule of thumb is to keep one foot on the shore and take the circular route around to the other side.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north the west coast of America of America where the Great Northwest will see a series of weak systems move through the region throughout the week bringing periods of rain and light snow to the Cascades.
Off the west coast of British Columbia I can see two lows that will be merging today and then moving south starting tomorrow. This is a cold system originating in the Gulf of Alaska. As it moves down the coast it will be bringing moderate rain and snow down to around 3000 feet in northern California. There won’t be much snow accumulation because this system will be moving quickly south.
On Thursday the storm will reach southern California and bring moderate rain and snow to the mountains and the California deserts into Friday. As the storm moves east on Friday it will be gusterly in southern California along with a chance of thunderbumpers into Saturday morning.
Looking now over to the southwest where mostly clear skies are expected through the middle of the week while temperatures remain mild or slightly above average for early February. Towards the end of the week and over the weekend that Pacific storm is proged to arrive bringing much colder temperatures, increasing clouds and a slight chance of rain and mountain snow into the weekend.
That’s what is gong on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence with Carnaval starting this Thursday the La Paz weather bloggers are sharpening their weather pencils saying the party goers should have very pleasant daytime weather with light winds. I’d have to agree. It looks like the strong winds will wait until Sunday to return.
Today the Sea should see the high whispys return this afternoon for most of the Sea. All in all it should be a good solar day.
Wind-wise it looks like the 3-day forecast period is in for very moderate, mostly NW winds.
Here are the details. The northern Sea for the next three days will most likely see light to moderate winds with a southern flavor.
The central Sea on the Baja side moderate NE winds for the next 3 day and along the Sonoran coast WNW.
The southern Sea in the La Paz area light to moderate winds today and tomorrow then on Thursday the NW winds pick up to the high teens. The East Cape ballpark 16-20 NW winds for the next 3 days.
The outside passage, Pt. San Quinten will see ballpark 20K winds for the 3-day forecast period and the rest mostly in the mid to high teens for the next 3 day.
The Mexican Riviera light to moderate NW winds to Cabo Corrienties and south of Cabo Corrienties light to moderate SW winds.
The el Burro Chamber of Commerce is giving the rest of the week 3 stars. Temperatures today will be in the mid to high 70a for the central Sea and it looks like the cape region will be looking at around 80 this afternoon.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that yesterday the Pineapple Express kept the central Sea pretty much blanketed with a solid mix of fluffys and whispys until late afternoon. During the night the southern jet has disappeared and the plume has diminished in size and most of the heavy moisture laden clouds have passed over the Sea early by this morning. In this image I can still see a few fluffys but mostly whispys.
It looks like there will be periods of clearing along with mostly high whispys today. I’d think by tomorrow the moisture coming off the ITCZ/Monsoon trough will have dissipated and clear skies will be in the forecast until at lest mid week. We’ll see.
This morning the cape area is clear and all along the Mexican Riviera they can expect to see abundant sunshine today.
The gradient has relaxed over the Tehuantepec isthmus and the Tehuantepecker that has been there for 4 days will see winds drop to less than 20 today and be in those ranges for the 3-day forecast period.
Looking out along 8N this morning I can see that area out about 130 that has been producing all the clouds we have been seeing is still pumping out clouds but considerably less than the past week.
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 a series of rather light systems will be moving through the Great Northwest most of the week bringing periodic rain and mountain snow to the Cascades.
Looking south to northern California where high pressure will stay in place today and begin to shift south this evening and tomorrow opening the storm door for extreme northern California for light rain tomorrow.
Wednesday things will start to change for all of California when a pair of low systems will merge off the British Columbia coast and then start moving down along the California coast and by Thursday bring a cold wet system to the state. Snow levels will be down to around 3000 feet in the Sierras and the southern California mountains.
Right now it looks like this storm will last into Friday with clearing into the weekend.
Looking now over to the southwest where mostly clear skies are expected through the middle of the week while temperatures remain mild, slightly above the norms for early February.
Friday that Pacific storm should arrive in the southwest bringing cooler temperatures, rain and snow to the higher elevations through the weekend.
Well, that’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence that moisture plume kept most of the temperatures short of the forecast values yesterday. No 80 degree reading in the Sea. Most were in the mid to high 70s though. Today we should see some reach the 80 degree mark through.
Wind-wise yesterday most of the locations were close to the advertized speeds for the afternoon except here in Concepción Bay where the winds were light. Today’s winds on the Baja side should be mostly in the mid to high teens. A bit higher along central Sonoran coast in the Guaymas area.
Here are the details. The northern Sea North or NW in the mid teens for the next 3 days.
The central Sea 15-18 today diminishing to the low to mid teens on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The southern Sea light to moderate winds in the low teens today then 14-17 from the NW for Tuesday and Wednesday.
The outside passage for the next 3 days it looks like 18-20 from one end to the other.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan today 9-12 picking up to 16-18 Tuesday and Wednesday. Puerto Vallarta south light to very moderate again for the 3-day forecast period.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning first with the jet stream amylases I can see that the southern jet has moved north overnight and is now stretches from the ITCZ/Monsoon trough to central California. The moisture plume that is slowly dissipating is still being steered by the jet. Most, but not all of the heavy moisture laden clouds are being transported into Southern California, southern Nevada and SW Arizona this morning. In this image I can see several dark bottomed clouds passing over the central Sea. I’d expect to hear reports of some sprinkles in the Concepción Bay Mulegé area this morning. That being said it still looks like the Sea of Cortez will see another hazy day of high whispys along with patches of sun.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where it is clear this morning all the way to Central America.
Father south the Tehuantepecker is still brewing with gale force winds. They are forecast to diminish to less than 20 knots by tomorrow.
Looking now out into the Eastern Pacific basin I can see the ITCZ/Monsoon trough is not quite as active as it has been for the past week. The only area of any convection is around 130 and it is still pumping out a few clouds but not the abundance of moisture laden clouds that has been the pattern for the past several days.
That’s what is gong on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where there will be a series of weak systems moving though the Great Northwest all week. Today’s will bring a chance of light rain with a better chance tomorrow.
Extreme Northern California will most likely see a little rain on Tuesday as a system passed through to the north, but otherwise it should be warm and dry well into next week.
Southern California has a low moving in from the Pacific in the wake of the departing high that has been parked along the coast for a week. This will bring showers to the LA basin early this morning and then the next best chance of any rain will be later in the week when another system is proged to move through the southland.
Looking now over to the southwest where in this image I can see considerable cloudiness from the Pineapple Express moving into the SW corner of Arizona this morning. They have a slight chance of some light showers in SW Arizona this morning expanding east during the day and evening. The best chances are in the higher terrain. It will taper off this evening as the clouds dissipate and mostly clear skies will continue into mid week when the next Pacific storm will bring a better chance of more rain. Temperatures will remain mild throughout the week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the fence the forecast is still calling for 20 knot winds in the central and southern Sea for today diminishing just a bit Monday and Tuesday.
Here are the details.
The northern Sea will continue to see moderate NW winds in the mid teens over the 3-day forecast period.
The forecast for the central Sea is for the 20 knot winds to continue today diminishing to just below 20 on Monday and Tuesday.
The southern Sea: La Paz today high teens, light tomorrow and mid teens on Tuesday. The East Cape around 20 knots today, mid teens tomorrow and high teens on Tuesday.
As I mentioned the outside passage the honeymoon is over for the very moderate winds along the outside. The 3-day forecast period is for ballpark 20K NW winds to return.
The Mexican Riviera light to moderate NW winds Mazatlan to Cabo Corrienties and light SW winds Manzanillo south.
Now that being said for the past 3 days the winds in the Sea according to the real-time reporting stations have not reached their forecast values. Most have been 4-8 know below what has been forecast so I’m going to stick my neck out a bit and suggest that the same will happen today and the 20 knot winds that are forecast for the Sea this afternoon will be less than that. We’ll see.
As far as temperatures most locations in the Sea inched toward 80 degree mark and here in the cove was the only station that reported 80 degrees. It looks like today south from Santa Rosalia on the Baja side and Guaymas on the Sonoran coast will see the 80 degree mark broken.
So it looks like a nice warm February day albeit a bit hazy is on tap for today.
I may have mentioned in the past, that I use an old weatherman trick before giving my weather and that is to take a look outside. I looked up and could see the moon through the haze and at the same time a few sprinkles hit my face. I’m still forcasting a great Super Bowl Sunday.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the entire west coast of Baja and up into southern California is blanketed with clouds that have moved off the ITCZ/Monsoon trough.
The Pineapple Express has a southern jet that has swung north during the past 24 hours and is currently centered in central Baja.
The clouds are mostly high whispys however there are some multl-level clouds that look to be packing a lot of moisture. I’d however be surprise if the coast saw any rain as most these clouds dissipate before reaching land.
The plume is broken so there will be periods of sun peaking through during the haze day.
The ITCZ/Monsoon trough continues to pump out these clouds so it looks like this very broad plume of the Pineapple Express will be with us for at least the next 24 hours.
Looking now to the Mexican Riviera where it looks to be clear along the coast from around Puerto Vallarta south to Central America this morning. If the plume continues to move north Mazatlan could clear up later this morning.
Further south the gradient over the Tehuantepec isthmus won’t relax until at least Sunday so the Tehuantepecker brewing there will continue with gale force winds advisories posted until at least Sunday.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where under high pressure the west coast is under a warming trend that will last until around Tuesday when the high off the west coast breaks down and opens the storm door.
In this image I can see the next storm well out in the Pacific that will slowly advance toward the coast over the weekend. By Tuesday it is forecast to bring rain to California and snow in the higher elevation. Another system is proged to arrive later in the week.
Meantime above normal temperatures for California with cloudy conditions over southern California for the weekend.
Looking now over to the southwest where I can see clouds moving up the Baja coast and drifting over into Arizona this morning. Today it will remain warm but tomorrow the SW could see some light showers or sprinkles. The warming trend will then resume on Monday and continue until the middle of next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the models continue to show 17-20 knot winds in the central and southern Sea in the afternoons for the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the details.
The northern Sea will continue to see moderate winds in the 13-15 knot ranges for the 3-day forecast period.
From the bay of San Francisquito south to a bit short of Puerto Escondido 17-20 for next 3 days.
Puerto Escondido south to the East Cape ballpark 20 knots over the weekend and diminishing to mid teens on Monday.
The outside passage the moderate winds coniine today picking up to the 17-20 know ranges tomorrow and Monday.
The Mexican Riviera Mazatlan to Puerto Vallarta moderate NW over the weekend south to Cabo Corrienties light SW winds.
That being said, none of the reporting stations in the central Sea reported winds reaching the forecast values yesterday. Most were in the mid teens, not the 20 knots that were forecast. This has been the pattern for the past couple of days. Hopefully this will continue today for the central Sea.
The data from the real-time reporting stations are reporting 1020 in the northern Sea 1017-1018 in the central Sea and 1015-1016 at the cape and south.
Temperature-wise all locations in the central Sea broke 70 degrees yesterday. Today the central Sea will see temperatures in the mid 70s and La Paz south in the mid to higth70s. La Paz could reach 80 degrees on Sunday.. Overnight lows crept up a degree or two also last night.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see the Pineapple Express is still with us. Yesterday it sent a broad broken plume of clouds over the Sea of Cortez from the northern Sea south to around Manzanillo. There were periods of veiled sunshine along with the clouds mostly in the afternoon yesterday.
This morning the plume looks much the same as yesterday and the sky conditions will be about the same for both the Sea and Mexican Riviera, however the southern edge of the plume is around Cabo Corrienties this morning.
The ITCZ/Monsoon trough is again quite active this morning pumping out abundant clouds into the Eastern Pacific basin that move NE and are picked up and steered by a southern jet, aka the Pineapple Express toward Baja.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where under high pressure most of the west coast is dry including the Great Northwest this morning.
Northern California is forecast to remain dry through mid next week when the models are showing that a rather weak system will bring a chance of some light rain to the north state.
In southern California today the high pressure will continue to bring warm weather through Saturday then a weak low will move into the region bringing only a slim chance of any rain. Later in the week a strong trough will bring colder weather and a chance of showers later in the week.
Looking now over to the southwest where a gradual warming trend will continue through the weekend as the high pressure off the coast slowly expands eastward with temperatures climbing above normal today and Saturday. It will continue to be warm and dry albeit cloudy Sunday into early next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the hard blow is over, however it looks like we will be looking at 20 knot winds in the afternoons for at least the next three days.
Here are the details: The northern Sea will continue to see moderate NW winds in the mid teens over the 3-day forecast period.
Normally this time of year we see light winds in the morning picking up in the afternoon. Right now it looks like the winds will start a bit earlier, say mid morning, and be in the mid to high teens. The afternoons should be seeing ballpark 20k winds for the 3-day forecast period.
Pretty much the same pattern for the southern Sea over the 3-day forecast period. Light in the morning picking up to around 20 knots in the afternoon.
The outside passage looks like it the moderate NW winds will continue along the passage for at least the next 3 days.
Looking at the Mexican Riviera this morning Mazatlan should see NW winds in the mid to upper teens for the next 3 days. The rest of the Riviera light NW winds to Cabo Corrienties and light SW south of the cape.
Temperature wise, most of the reporting stations in the Sea reported overnight lows in the mid 60 and the daytime highs creped up into the low 70s yesterday. Today we should see daytime highs in the central Sea in the mid 70s and the southern Sea the high 70s with the low 80s still being forecast for the cape area this weekend.
