Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that that rather large cell that developed yesterday morning and drifted into the southern crossing and moved NW and crossed the peninsula around La Paz yesterday morning. In the wake the southern Sea cleared for the rest of the day.
For most of the rest Sea yesterday it looked like hazy sunshine with a mix of scattered fluffys.
Last night around midnight a cell developed east of Los Mochas and moved NW paralleling the Sea for a ways before moving out into the Sea. At 5am it was spread out from Guaymas to Concepcion Bay and Puerto Escondido to the south. Guaymas got over an inch of rain since midnight.
To the north and south of this cell the Sea looks to be clear of any cloudiness this am.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera this morning I can see a small cell over Manzanillo this morning and some remnant clouds along the coast south to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where there is a huge cell the completely encompassed the Gulf, the isthmus and portions of Guatemala at 5am this morning.
Looking in our Tropical Kitchen this morning it looks like we will have a Kiko in our future, our 11th named storm of the season. Invest 98E has been upgraded to Tropical Depression 11 echo and it is south and west of the cape this morning. Model guidance is suggesting this storm will briefly become a minimal tropical storm later today.
Unlike sister Juliette, Kiko will be a slow mover and lasting probably 4 days as it slowly moves toward colder waters well off the west coast of the Baja peninsula. Tomorrow it looks like Kiko will become depressed again and become a post-depression low in 96 hours.
Looking over into the Atlantic for Tropical Waves headed our way I can see one just leaving Africa. They are giving it a good chance of developing in a depression in the Atlantic. There is another around 52W and that’s a bit too far out to know what will happen to it. The other is in the western Caribbean near Haiti. That will probably not make it out of the Caribbean. So that’s pretty much in line with the long range tropical forecast for the Eastern Pacific basin where none of the models are showing anything tropical popping up over the next 4-5 days except this current storm. We should be having a pleasant weekend.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image it looks like Seattle will seeing sunshine today and the rain won’t begin again until tomorrow into the weekend.
In northern California water vapor imagery is showing an upper low centered about 900 miles west of Seattle moving slowly to the SE. It will remain off the coast until next weekend when it will bring some cooler temperatures. In the meantime the upcoming weekend looks like a typical summer day for the north state with mid 60s along the coast and low 90s inland.
In southern California the Florida-like humidity will slightly decrease but continue through the beginning of the holiday weekend. Thunderbumper activity will decrease over the weekend into next week. Temperatures will be a bit cooler over the weekend.
Looking now over to the southwest where this image is showing what looks like mostly light rain fell around the Tucson area during the night but the skies are clearing in southwest this morning. Deep moisture will continue to cover the region through the weekend resulting in a chance of afternoon and evening showers and thunderbumpers area wide. Next week the monsoonal activity will decrease somewhat with warmer afternoon temperatures expected.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence with the exception of the north and central Sonoran coast which will see NW winds in the low 20s today, the rest of the Sea should see mid to low teens for not only today but the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: low teens from the NE.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: around 20 today, 15 tomorrow and 12 on Monday all from the NW.
The Baja side of the central Sea: low teens from the NE for the next 3 days.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Mostly light SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
The East Cape: look like light NE for the next 3 days. It could have a western component tomorrow.
The Mexican Riviera: Cabo Corrienties north light NW. Cabo Corrienties south light SW winds for the next 3 days.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the passing of sister Juliette along the west coast of the Baja peninsula brought rain, heavy in many locations to the peninsula. Loreto about a half inch & San Filepe 2 inches.
This image is showing the skies clearing over the Sea of Cortez this morning. Sunshine here in the cove for the first time in two days. Only the far northern portion of the Sea continues to see fairly heavy cloud cover. The latest image is showing just some scattered clouds around the Sea.
Looking south to along the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see that a very large cell developed around Puerto Vallarta early this morning and moved out into the Sea and started north. By 5:30 this morning it had diminished about half in size as it approached the southern crossing. by 7am it had moved into the southern crossing from shore to shore still quite strong.
From our Tropical Kitchen this morning sister Juliette turned out to be a very fast mover. Moving from Cabo Corrienties to Turtle Bay in roughly 24 hours. That’s a 679 mile trip averaging 28 mph. She is now depressed and heading west to Hawaii this morning. The National Hurricane Center issued it’s last advisory this morning.
She was a moisture packer and dropped lots of rain on the peninsula yesterday. Here in the cove we had about 2 inches.
The only other two items in our Tropical Kitchen are invest 97 and invest 98 which are well west and south of the cape and have only a slight chance of further development. Even if they did it would not affect Baja.
The other item is a Tropical Wave moving through the isthmus of Tehuantepec this morning. No significant deep convection is apparent in the satellite imagery so it does not look like the heavy rains that often accompany these waves through this region will happen. This is a good thing!
That’s what is happening in out hood this morning. Looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image I can see a low moving into the Great Northwest that will continue to bring rain showers to western Washington and Oregon today.
All that wetness should stay north of the California/Oregon border. There is a low in the Gulf of Alaska that is forecast to drop down and approach the west coast this weekend. This will bring cooler temperatures to the north state and a slight chance of rain late Sunday into Monday.
As a many, many years back-packer in the Sierras and in particular Yosemite National Park it was very sad to see videos of the Rim fire there. Now the over 4,000 firefighters are finally making some headway against the fire and have it around 30% contained. It has burned almost 200,000 acres and is so far is the 6th largest fire in the states history. California has had its driest year-to-date period so it is no surprise that the state is experiencing an unusually large fire this summer.
In southern California they will continue to see isolated scattered showers and thunderbumpers through today. Locally heavy rain and flash flooding are still possible today. It will remain cloudy all weekend with only moderate drying. They can expect to see afternoon and evening showers and thunderbumpers through next week.
Looking over to the southwest this image is showing a lot of moisture crossed the Fence last night with what looks like some heavy thunderbumpers all over the place. The entire state is overcast this morning. They could see showers all day and a better chance this evening. They can expect to see a return to more typical monsoon activity along with hotter temperatures Saturday into next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence right now it looks like clearing skies, moderate winds, and the temperatures will pop back up a few degrees.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea, Baja side: light northerlies for the 3-day forecast period. The Sonoran coast 18-22 westerlies for the next 3 days.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: light westerlies today then in the high teens over the weekend.
The Baja side of the central Sea: light to moderate NE winds for the next 3 days.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Mostly light SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
The East Cape: light today then moderate NW over the weekend.
The Mexican Riviera: in the Mazatlan area 18-22 NW for the next 3 days the rest mostly light NW today and over the weekend.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see there has been considerable thunderbumper activity over in Sonora. This morning this image is showing the Sea south to the Bay of La to have light to heavy cloud cover. It has been raining here in the cove since early last evening and several light showers yesterday.
We had sister Juliette pass west of the cape last night and clouds from this storm have spread out well into the Sea. It’s difficult to see where the influences are from. Juliette or thunderbumpers spreading out from the Sonoran coast.
Might as well talk about Juliette right now. Traditionally these “J” storms have been butt-kickers for the Baja peninsula and they never read the forecasts as is the case with Sister Juliette. She cranked up her speed from around 12 knots yesterday morning at this time to around 21 knots yesterday afternoon and swung from the Mainland coast to skirt around the cape during the night. Checking several real-time stations around the cape at 4am this morning rainfall was not as much as was expected and about a half inch.
This morning Juliette is approaching Mag Bay on the west coast of the Baja peninsula. The latest updated forecast puts more of the west coast of the peninsula in the cone of storms winds and rain. The Mexican government has extended at Tropical Storm WARNING to Punta Eugenia, at Turtle Bay where she is forecast to swing west. For the next 24 hours she will be close to the coast so interests along the coast could be seeing some flooding.
I will update the sunrisanet tropical page at Noon and at 5 this evening.
Looking back along the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera and from Cabo Corrienties north it is solid thumpers along the coast extending well into the Sea of Cortez. To the south of the cape there are a few small squalls just off the coast and that is it until you get to the Tehuantepec where a solid line of thumpers stretch across the isthmus this morning. This is due to a Tropical Wave crossing the Yucatan peninsula this morning.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the Great Northwest will be seeing showers all weekend.
In northern California most of the rain will be north of the Bay Area and pleasant summer weather is on tap for the rest of northern California throughout the weekend.
In southern California an increase in monsoonal moisture will move into the southland today bringing light showers and thunderbumper through tomorrow. Some drying and slight cooling is expected over the weekend with only a slight chance of showers in the mountains.
Looking now over to the southwest where the monsoon will be monsooning. They are expecting rain, heavy at times throughout the southwest. Flash flood advisories have been issued for several counties as well as the southern California deserts.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the central and southern Sea will continue to see rain today. Winds in general will be on the moderate side from the SE. I did note what could be anomalies in the northern crossing and in the northern Sea but did not have time to run a cross check on them.
Here is what I have for the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The Northern Sea: moderate SE today, light NE tomorrow and lighter winds from the west on Saturday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: My models are showing strong winds to around 25 in the Guaymas area today. This could be an anomaly. Tomorrow light west winds, and Saturday moderate NW.
The Baja side of the central Sea: strong winds to SE 25. This also could be an anomaly did not have time to check. Tomorrow and Saturday moderate NE winds.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light to moderate SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
The East Cape: light SE today, moderate SW tomorrow and Saturday.
The Mexican Riviera: light mostly SW winds on tap for the 3-day forecast period

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that early last evening around Los Mochas thunderbumpers began developing and during the night more continued to develop and move north. By 3am a half dozen had moved out into the Sea pretty much blanketing the Sea with clouds and several rather large high topped thunderbumpers were as far south as Hermosillo in Sonora and San Francisquito Bay on the Baja side. By 7am not much has improved with the storms only slightly diminishing. It does not look like any actually completely crossed the Sea during the night.
Looking to the south along the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera we had two lows, invest 95 and invest 96 moving north along the coast and as of 5am were only 114 miles west of Manzanillo and producing gale force winds and producing locally heavy rain over portions along the coast. It currently looks like they will bring heavy rain to southern Baja starting tomorrow.
The track for 95 echo is to pass just to the west of the cape tomorrow and Friday. 96 echo is progged to hit Cabo head-on and possible move into the Sea.
Neither of these systems is expected to reach hurricane status however as I mentioned are packing lots of moisture and have the potential for flash flooding as well as strong winds.
Another item of interest in our Tropical Kitchen this morning is a tropical wave that is currently in the western Caribbean and moving into eastern Honduras and northeastern Nicaragua. It looks like El Salvador and Guatemala will also be affected.
Historically these August storms in this area have produced horrendous rains, flash flooding and life threatening mud slides. Hopefully this will not happen with this system.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where again the Great Northwest will see showers off and on to the end of the week.
In northern California there is a trough off the coast and will remain out there into the Labor Day weekend. This will be keeping the temperatures about normal, the storm track to the north and block monsoonal moisture from moving up into the north state.
In southern California monsoonal moisture will continue over southern California today with isolated afternoon thunderbumpers over the mountains and deserts. Additional moisture will enter the region tomorrow and continue into Friday bringing a greater chance of showers and thunderbumper to the southland. A gradual drying trend will develop over the weekend.
Of Note: there are over 3,000 firefighters fighting fires in the west. The giant wildfire burning at the edge of Yosemite National Park has not only destroyed buildings and threatened water supplies, electricity and sequoias, it has also unleashed a smoky haze that has worsened air quality more than 100 miles away in Nevada.
Looking now off to the southwest where the monsoon will be returning today with a strong shot of moisture from the south and southwest and will be accompanied by a mid level impulse moving up from Sonora today. This will lead to a quick increase in thunderbumper activity by this afternoon with some storms generating locally heavy rain. It looks like the rest of the week will see a good chance of afternoon and evening showers and thunderbumpers. This image is showing the state to be mostly clear with only the far SE corner seeing some moisture moving up from the south.
That’s what is gong on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the entire Sea will be seeing strong southerly winds today and to a lesser extent tomorrow as well. Friday the winds will be mostly in the light to moderate ranges. That being said there is a good chance that a storm or storms will be in vicinity of the cape starting tomorrow and a chance that one will move into the Sea. We’ll see?
Disregarding that here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: around 23 today from the SE, 18 tomorrow again from the SE and then lay back down on Friday to be light from the NE.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: strong to around 20 today from the SE, tomorrow moderate SE and Friday moderate SW.
The Baja side of the central Sea: strong to 20 today from the SW, a bit less tomorrow and then light NE on Friday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Strong to the high teens today and tomorrow from the SE and Friday light southerlies.
The East Cape: mid teens today picking up to around 20 tomorrow with the storms in the vicinity. Friday it looks right now for light southerlies.
The Mexican Riviera: from Manzanillo to Cabo Corrienties today 23-30 with the storm just off to the west. Tomorrow the storm will be north to the area and the winds will be in the moderate ranges from the SW.

Looking down into the Sea this morning this image is showing the Sea to be free of any clouds. Using the 24 hour loop I can see there was some thunderbumper activity in the NW corner of Sonora last night with the remnant clouds moving across the Fence into the SE California deserts and the SW corner of Arizona.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera where we have a wanna-be. Actually it’s pretty sure to be a gonna-be. It is invest 95 Echo and is currently west of Acapulco moving around 15 mph north up the coast dropping lots of rain along the way. The models are showing it becoming a Tropical Depression probably today and a tropical storm tomorrow. Its progged to round the cape to the west on Thursday. Once around the cape the forecast track is further to the west than Ivo tracked. We’ll see? As I mentioned, It’s current speed is around 15mph which has it moving around 360 miles a day.
Looking out into the Atlantic for Tropical Waves I can see two rather far out at 23 and 43W. There is another much closer in the Caribbean this morning and is along the border of eastern Honduras and northeastern Nicaragua. Typically these lows that come into this region are big-time rain producers so we will be keeping this area on the back burner in our Tropical Kitchen for the next couple of days.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where again the Great Northwest will be having cloudy skies and showers today.
In northern California high pressure will be keeping the north state pleasant all week with temperatures along the coast in the high 60s and inland the mid 90s.
In southern California remnant moisture from brother Ivo along with possible a reinforcing surge of monsoonal moisture later this week will result in a threat of thunderbumpers for portions of the southland through the end of the week especially in the mountains in deserts and possibly over the inland valleys. Very heavy rain along with thunderbumpers may produce flash flooding in the extreme southland today.
Looking now over to the southwest where this image is showing remnant clouds moving north out of the state into Utah this morning. The Tucson area looks to be cloud free. The forecast is for the overall rain chances to decrease slightly today and tomorrow as drier attempts to settle over the region from the east. There is still enough residual moisture to support a few storms though. Thursday and Friday looks like a better chance of more extensive thunderbumper activity. Temperatures will remain below the seasonal normal through the end of the week.
Of Note: Las Vegas received 3 inches of rain yesterday causing down town flooding.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence right now it looks like clear skies and pleasant winds.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: mid teens for the 3-day forecast period. Today
north, tomorrow east, Thursday ESE.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: W or WSW today and tomorrow in the mid teens. Thursday around 22 from the SE.
The Baja side of the central Sea: mid teens today from the NE. tomorrow mid teens from the SE and Thursday around 20 from the SE.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Mid teens from the SE for the 3-day forecast period.
La Paz: mid teens from the NW today and tomorrow and then around 18 on Thursday from the south.
The East Cape: SE winds for the 3-day forecast period. Today and tomorrow moderate, Thursday around 26 from the SE.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan to Puerto Vallarta moderate mostly SW winds for the 3-day forecast period. Cabo Corrienties south there is a storm moving up the coast that is currently a bit west of Acapulco this morning. Wind and rain totals will depend on how close to shore it comes over the 3-day forecast period. Right now it looks like he mid to high 20s but don’t chisel that in stone yet. That’s a best guess.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea had a brief clearing yesterday afternoon before it become cloudy again.
In southern Sonoran they had considerable thunderbumper activity yesterday afternoon and the remnant clouds from these cells have drifted out into the Sea and have pretty much blanketed the southern Sea to the northern crossing. This latest image is showing these clouds dissipating so I’d expect that by perhaps mid morning they should be gone.
Looking to the northern Sea this morning where I can see where post-tropical remnant low Ivo is now over the northern Baja peninsula this morning. This image is showing most of the cloudiness is to the north of Gonzaga Bay this morning. Water vapor imagery is showing abundant moisture being swept north from Ivo into southern California and SW Arizona this morning.
I’d expect the northern and central Sea to also clear by mid morning.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see a nice tall cell directly over Puerto Vallarta this morning. Further south it is solid thunderbumpers from Manzanillo south to Acapulco this morning. The Tehuantepec is very active with numerous thumpers building and diminishing overnight.
Over on the Caribbean side there is tropical storm Fernand that is moving inland, and this morning pretty much all of southern Mexico has cloud cover with thunderbumpers working all over the SW Mexico.
Back over here in the Eastern Pacific basin we have an item on the back burner of our Tropical Kitchen this morning. It is a low and associated Tropical Wave that is, and will be, hugging the coast bringing showers and thunderbumpers all along the SW coast of Mexico. Long range it is forecast to become a hurricane later in the week. Meantime it will be slowly moving NNW up the coast producing locally heavy rain. Interests along the coast should closely monitor the progress of this storm due to the proximity of the storm to the coastline.
It is currently designated as invest 95E, the name will be Juliette and the early computer track have it paralleling the west coast of Mexico to around Cabo Corrienties before turning to the west a bit more to skirt around the cape.
This is five days out so don’t chisel this storms track in stone. Two ticks to the east and it could come into the Sea. So we will be closely monitoring the forward progress of this storm.
That’s what is gong on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where again Seattle is again seeing a chance of rain today.
In northern California it looks like a very calm week is in store for them. High pressure off the west coast is keeping the storm door well to the north.
In southern California tropical moisture from Brother Ivo will spread north and westward through tonight bringing periods of heavy rain showers and thunderbumpers particularly over the mountains and deserts. The coast could also see significant rainfall. A flash flood watch is in effect for most areas until midnight tonight. Showers should decrease tomorrow but the threat of afternoon and evening thunderbumpers will continue through this week.
Looking now over to the southwest where flash flood advisories have been posted over much of the SW today including Yuma. A stormy and unsettled period is anticipated today across the region as deep moisture from former tropical storm Ivo moves into the state from the south. There should be sufficient moisture remain in place for afternoon and evening showers and thumpers the remainder of the work week. Temperatures will dip a few degrees this week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence we should see most of the cloudiness in the Sea dissipate by mid or late morning today.
Post-Tropical depression Ivo is now over northern Baja pretty much sitting on the Fence between southern California and SW Arizona his morning. So with the exception of around San Filepe which seen over an inch of rain since midnight could see some more rain and flooding today, the Sea will be fairly calm with mostly moderate northerlies. Tomorrow the Sea will continue to see moderate northerlies with Wednesday the moderate winds swinging back to the SE again albeit a bit stronger.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light northerlies today and tomorrow and moderate SE on Wednesday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: Light to moderate SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
The Baja side of the central Sea: light NE winds today and tomorrow and then moderate southerlies on Wednesday.
The forecast for the Puerto Escondido area is for light to moderate SE for the 3-day forecast period.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands: Light NW today the light SE on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The East Cape: mid teens today from the NW. light from the NW tomorrow and lighter NE on Wednesday.
The Mexican Riviera: light NW from Mazatlan to Cabo Corrienties for the 3-day forecast period. South of Cabo Corrienties there will be a storm moving up the coast bringing strong winds and rain. Winds should be light SW today then be influenced by the low with winds in the mid to high 20s as the storm passes to the west.

Looking down into the Sea this morning at 4am I can see the Sea is overcast from the cape to San Filepe.
Using the 24 hour loop I can see Ivo moving down the outside of the Baja peninsula. Around midnight a tall wet cell broke off of Ivo a bit south of Mag Bay and crossed the peninsula moving into the Sea, going north up the Sea and then it looked like it passed over Guaymas and at 5am was over Hermosillo. This cell was more intense than Ivo on the west coast. Puerto Escondido reported the most rain accumulation in the Sea with 1.78 inches of rain last night. Los Barriles had almost an inch. The station here at el Burro winked out at midnight so no data from Concepcion Bay.
Right now it looks like Ivo is spread out over the outside of the peninsula from around Abreojos to inside Turtle Bay.
Moisture from Ivo is spreading northward across the northern portion of the Baja peninsula, northwestern Mexico and the southwest. Locally heavy rains and flash flooding will be possible for these areas during the next couple of days. Flash flood advisories have already been posted for Yuma.
The official forecast shows the depression degenerating to a remnant low within 24 hours. That low is then expected to dissipate by 72 hours so all this wetness will be with us a while.
It looks like about the time we will be saying good by to Ivo we will be saying hello to Juliette. She is the latest item in our Tropical Kitchen and is currently just an area of disorganized thunderbumpers working a couple hundred miles SW of the Gulf to Tehuantepec. This system is progged to develop slowly and probably become a Tropical Depression during the next 48 hours and a hurricane by mid week.
That’s what is going on in our hood this morning. Looking now north to the west coast of America where again the Great Northwest is the only location along the west coast that will see any rain today and they will see only light showers.
The rest of the north coast typical August temperatures and weather.
Southern California will start to see moisture from the remnants of Tropical Depression Ivo today through Monday. This will bring showers and thunderbumpers to the mountains and deserts and a chance of showers to the west of the mountains. Lingering moisture will bring a good chance of showers and thunderbumper into next week about the time when the next tropical system is progged to move into southern California.
Looking over to the southwest where flash flood advisories have been posted for the deserts in southeast California and southwest Arizona today. Heavy rain and thunderbumper are anticipated into early next week. There will be enough lingering moisture to lead to a good chance of thunderbumpers for most of next week. Temperatures in the Tucson area will drop around 10 degrees today from 105 yesterday to around 95 today.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like we may see the southern Sea clearing later this morning. The central Sea looks like it will remain cloudy as long as Ivo is parked due west of Concepción Bay on the west coast of the peninsula.
The northern Sea will most likely see periods of rain today and have 100% cloud cover all day.
As far as winds, here in the cove we had some 20 knot winds that lasted until around 1am this morning then along with the rain stopped.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The forecast for the northern Sea is for light NE winds for the 3-day forecast period. It looks like Ivo will be passing the northern Sea later today and tomorrow so the winds will probably pick up a bit. Rain is probable.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea had a big honk’n cell pass over it early this morning and the winds are forecast to be around 24 knots this afternoon from the SE. I’m a bit iffy about the strength of those winds but I’m posting the data from the models. The next two days light SW.
The Baja side of the central Sea: Strong SE winds today to 24 but I’m also doubtful that we will see these winds. The next two day light NE winds.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. From around Puerto Escondido into the San Lorenzo Channel 18 know winds are forecast today then light southerlies for the next 2 days.
La Paz ballpark 10 knot SW winds for the next 3 days.
The East Cape: light southerlies today and tomorrow and then light NE on Tuesday.
The Mexican Riviera: light mostly SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.

Sea of Cortez/Baja Weather for 08/24/13

By: Geary, 1:04 PM GMT on August 24, 2013


Saturday, August 24, 2013

Voice to Text

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that yesterday morning the skies were pretty much clear for the entire Sea of Cortez. Yesterday afternoon the East Cape started seeing clouds from the passing tropical storm Ivo and the southern Sea has been filling in ever since.
This morning the outer swirls of Ivo have reached Concepción Bay. Within these clouds in the Sea this image is showing a few small thunderbumper working. I’d expect to see showers in the Sea today.
Ivo is currently just passing to the west of the cape and by tomorrow morning should be around Scorpion Bay still as a tropical storm. Ivo should then be in much cooler waters and be plutoed to a tropical depression by late Sunday and a remnant low by Monday.
It looks to me that from this afternoon the west coast of the Baja peninsula will be seeing heavy rain and flash flooding through Sunday evening. The big question is: Will there be heavy rain on the east side of the Baja peninsula?
Without calling “Wolf”, I’m thinking that if there is just a chance of this happening, interests on the Sea of Cortez side from Puerto Escondido north should plan accordingly if they are in flood zones.
The cape, and East Cape have been receiving a lot of rain in the past 24 hours almost an inch in several locations. Los Barrales had .81 inches of rain.
As of 5am this morning from Concepcion Bay north the skies are fairly clear but that will change during the day as Ivo get closer.
Looking south to the cape this morning and checking the webcams I can see heavy surf, high winds blowing the palm trees and what looks like heavy rain.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see numerous thunderbumper have been working along the coast from Puerto Vallarta south to Central America all night and this morning.
The only other item of interest beside tropical storm Ivo in our Tropical Kitchen this morning is a Tropical Wave passing over the Yucatan this morning that will be cranking up the winds in the Gulf of Tehuantepec just a bit today.
Long range models are also showing another system cranking up about mid week SW of Manzanillo and following about the same path as Ivo. This will be a “J” storm that have traditionally been butt kickers. We’ll see?
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 Seattle and the Cascades will be seeing showers today.
The rest of the west coast will be generally dry. There is a weak low that will be moving in the northern California that could bring a few showers to extreme northern California but otherwise northern California will be dry for the next few days.
In southern California it should be fair and warm today along the coast. There is a slight chance of some thunderbumper activity in the mountains this afternoon.
Then tomorrow the remnants of Ivo are forecast to move into southern California potentially bringing thunderbumpers along with heavy rain. A flash flood watch is in effect from tomorrow morning through Monday evening for the mountains and deserts.
Looking now over to the southwest where a long duration rain event is anticipated this weekend across the region. All this is coming from a decaying Ivo. Heavy rain and flash flooding is possible tomorrow especially across southeast California and southwest Arizona. Rain chance decrease by early next week however there will be enough moisture in the air for afternoon and evening thunderbumpers through the remainder of the week.
That’s what is gong on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence none of the models are in agreement with what the winds will be in the Sea for the 3-day forecast period. This morning when I was bringing up virtual buoy locations they were changing from minute to minute. Well, almost. I’d reboot the location and I’d get different forecast. Drove me coo-coo.
From yesterday there has been a major change in the forecast for the Sea of Cortez mainly in the central Sea where today it looks like mostly moderate easterly or SE winds.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: They are still forecast to have SE winds in the high 20s today. Low 20s tomorrow and light NE winds on Monday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: light NE today, SE to around 20 tomorrow and light westerlies on Monday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: moderate east of SE today and tomorrow and light NE on Monday. Except for Puerto Escondido which is forecast to have Strong to 23 from the SE today then light to moderate winds Sunday and Monday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Strong winds to the low 20s today from the SE, then moderate SW tomorrow and light NW on Monday.
The East Cape: they are still forecast to have almost 40 knot winds today as Ivo passes then light to moderate Sunday and Monday.
The Mexican Riviera: mostly light SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.

BAD WEEKEND TO PLAN A PICNIC!

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that it took a long time for those whispys to clear yesterday morning. After that the skies over Baja were pretty much cloud free.
Looking over to Sonora I can see there has not been a lot of thunderbumper activity in the state for the past 24 hours. Well, there has been a few small cells build and dissipate but nothing moved out into the Sea. There were several small thumpers that moved across the Fence in the very far NE corner of the Sea early last night though.
Looking now to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera where I can see that there is fairly heavy thunderbumper activity from around Puerto Vallarta to Manzanillo this morning. From there south there are just some remnant clouds along the coast to the Tehuantepec where I can see a high topped thumper parked right over the top of the Gulf this morning.
A tropical wave will pass over the Yucatan and Guatemala later today and will increase the winds in the Gulf to just below advisory levels then drop back to the mid low 20s by tomorrow night. Seas will be running about 8 feet in the gulf.
Looking now in our Tropical Kitchen where that low that we have been looking for the past 4 days expecting it come romping up into a hurricane will not. It was upgraded yesterday afternoon to a tropical depression with winds not expected to exceed around 40 knots during it’s life time. Another scenario is for it to briefly become a tropical storm later today then back to a tropical depression tomorrow. That’s the good news.
The bad news is that it is packing a lot of moisture and today will start to move NNW skirting the cape and paralleling the Baja peninsula.
There will be a surge of high seas funnel into the mouth of the Sea of Cortez today extending a ways north in the Sea.
It looks to me like the main danger from this storm will be the possibility of heavy rains and flash flooding along the western coast of the Baja peninsula and possible rains extending to the eastern Baja shores.
The current track has it passing the cape today and to around Mag Bay by Sunday morning, then Monday and Tuesday around Cedros Island. THEN as a remnant low passing over the Baja peninsula around Gonzaga bay and moving up into Arizona.
Southern California is also forecasting so moisture from this system next week.
There are a couple of Tropical Waves traversing the Atlantic this morning but are too far to east to be of any concern right now.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where northing is happening weather wise. Seattle may get a sprinkle or two over the weekend but the rest of the west coast will be dry and August warm.
Looking over to the southwest they expect that the decaying tropical storm will bring an increase in the thunderbumper activity over the weekend especially Sunday. They are still looking to next week for a return of the monsoon. Temperatures will be about average for this time of year and that is around 100. Tucson will be around 104 today and will be seeing a cooling trend into the weekend. .
That’s what is gong on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it does not look like it will be a pleasant weekend. High Sea to the south, heavy rains to the west, and high winds in the Sea. Bad weekend to plan a parade or picnic. Today however will be the lull before the storm.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: SE winds for the next 3 days. Today mid teens, tomorrow mid 20s, and Sunday low 20s, high teens.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: SE winds for the 3-day forecast period. Today mid teens, tomorrow mid 20s, Sunday high 20s.
The Baja side of the central Sea: today and tomorrow SE and SW on Sunday. Today mid teens, tomorrow 38-40(that’s in the Gale ranges) and Sunday around 25 knots.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. The mid to low 20s for the next three days. Today and tomorrow SE and SW on Sunday.
La Paz: around 30 for today and tomorrow from the SE and SW on Sunday light winds from the SW.
The East Cape: around 30 today and tomorrow from the SE and then light winds from the NE on Sunday.
The Mexican Riviera will be seeing light to moderate SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea has some whispys over a good portion this morning. These are remnant clouds from thunderbumper activity over in Sonora last night.
There was considerable thunderbumper activity along the Sonoran coast with only a few small cells moving out into the Sea during the night.
This morning a rather large cell developed around Los Mochas and has extended out into the Sea as it breaks up it is providing a lot of remnant clouds in the area including the southern crossing.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where 90% of the storms along the coast are off the coast a ways and it’s pretty much solid all the way south to Central America this morning.
Further south the Gulf of Tehuantepec is clear this morning as well as the isthmus. Winds are forecast to be less than 10 knots today.
Looking now in our Tropical Kitchen where I had expected to see that invest 94 which is sitting around 500 miles south of the cape would have developed into at least a tropical depression by now. It’s a bit less organized than last night but is still in an environmental friendly area for tropical development. I’d expect that sometime today it will be upgraded to a named storm and that would be Ivo. Ivo is forecast to track NW then skirt the cape over the weekend and move in a northwesterly direction until it hits colder water.
There is a chance that this system will catch up with the low that is up in front (to the west) and the two merge.
The National Hurricane Center models are showing another low could develop south of Acapulco early next week.
Over in the Atlantic there are a couple of Tropical Waves heading this way. One is way out around 40W and of no concern at this time. The other is over the Yucatan peninsula this morning and will probably pass over the Tehuantepec isthmus on Saturday looking for a lonely low to stimulate.
It looks like our tropical season is cranking up.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where in general it will be fair and warm into the weekend for most of the west coast. A low off the California coast is drawing tropical moisture north and this will increase the chance of showers and thunderbumper in the Sierras into early next week.
Again lightning strikes from these storms are of high concern due to the tender dry forests along the west coast.
Looking now over to the southwest where it looks like they will have to wait until early next week for the monsoonal activity to crank up again. In the meantime the high is retreating to the east leaving the region dry or drier. There may still be enough moisture in the air for isolated afternoon and evening showers and thunderbumper though the work week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the forecasts are still showing moderate winds today and tomorrow then strong winds over the weekend.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period ONLY.
The northern Sea: it looks like brisk winds to 20 this morning and
Moderate winds this afternoon. Tomorrow light to moderate NE all day. Then strong winds from the SE in the high 20s on Saturday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: moderate SW today, moderate SE tomorrow, strong to 24 on Saturday from the SE.
The Baja side of the central Sea: light NE today, moderate SE tomorrow and then Strong SE on Saturday to around 30.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Light NE today then around 20 from the SE on Friday and Saturday. For La Paz: today light NE, tomorrow SE to around 30 and Saturday SE in the mid 20s.
The East Cape: SE for the next 3 days. Light today then around 30 for Friday and Saturday.
The Mexican Riviera: they will continue to see mostly light SW for the 3-day forecast period. The exception is Mazatlan which looks like high teens today and tomorrow and around 25 on Saturday.
Now that being said there will most likely be a hurricane pass just to the west of the cape this weekend so these values could change dramatically. Be advised if you are in the area and prepare accordingly.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea has been relatively clear of any cloudiness once the remnant clouds from yesterday morning cleared. The webcams at the cape are showing rather heavy haze this morning.
Over the Baja peninsula there has been several cell develop back in the mountains in the past 24 hours and there is a nice one building back in the mountains just south of La Paz this morning at around 5am.
Looking over to Sonora where there has been considerable thunderbumper activity over night. One tall cell passed over the Guaymas area early this morning and has now dissipated.
North of Guaymas is where most of the thunderbumper activity took place last night. Numerous cells developed near the Fence then crossed over into Arizona. It looks like most of the thunderbumper took place before midnight and right now the southwest is pretty much blanketed with last night’s remnant clouds.
Looking now south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera where it would be hard to find a spot along the Riviera that did not have some from of thunderbumper activity over it during the night and for that matter this morning.
The ITCZ/Monsoon trough is very active this morning.
Looking now in our Tropical Kitchen I can see that there are two lows embedded in the zone this morning. Invest 94E and as of this time a low with no designation to the west of it.
94 Echo is around 500 miles SW of Manzanillo and ‘No Name’ is around 900 miles SW of the cape this morning. The National Hurricane Center is giving 94 echo an excellent chance of becoming our next Eastern Pacific basin storm probably within the next 48 hours.
We could have an interesting interaction between these two lows. If 94 Echo gets too close to ‘no-name’ they could spin like dumbbells then merge into one. Regardless if this happens or not it will be very windy in that area with winds near storm force. The storm that emerges will be named Ivo and the early forecast tracks show it moving north and passing to the west of the cape this weekend and paralleling the Baja coast until it hit cooler waters.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now to the west coast of America where the only weather maker is a cut off low off the California coast this morning that is advecting tropical moisture north, and the foothills of northern California and the Sierras are seeing some thunderbumper activity as a result. Concern is for the lightning strikes from these thumpers in the tinder dry areas.
The low will slowly move north over the next couple of days and bring a return of quiet weather for northern California with average August temperatures.
In southern California that low will continue to move north today before moving inland tomorrow. This will allow for drier conditions with only minor fluctuations in temperatures. There will be a slight chance of some thunderbumper action today in the deserts and mountains as the low continues to move north.
Looking now over to the southwest where the 24 hour loop is showing a lot of thunderbumpers working on both sides of the Fence last evening. This morning mostly remnant clouds blanket the southwest.
The high over the southwest will begin to weaken and shift east today. There will still be enough moisture in the air to bring a good chance of more thunderbumpers this evening. This weekend the southwest could see an increase in the monsoon activity with an influx of tropical moisture from the south.
AND they could see some remnant moisture from a tropical storm that is forecast to move along the outside to the Baja peninsula this weekend. We’ll see?
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like Friday we will have hurricane Ivo passing close to the cape on the outside. This will be bringing strong winds to the cape region first, then the southern and central Sea over the weekend. This might be a good time to check all ground tackle and if you are in the central or southern Sea prepare your vessel for strong winds over the weekend.
Here are the wind details for the next 3 days ONLY.
The northern Sea: light SE today, Light NE tomorrow, strong
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: light SW today and tomorrow strong SE (to 23) on Friday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: moderate SE today and tomorrow then around 22 on Friday from the SE.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light SE today, moderate SE tomorrow then around 30 from the SE on Friday.
The East Cape: light today then strong to the mid 20s Thursday and Friday.
The Mexican Riviera: mostly light SW for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that early last evening a good size thunderbumper started building around Los Mochas. It continued to grow expanding out into the Sea as it moved north.
Here in the cove we had a couple of almost 30 knot wind gusts, lots of lightning and 6 rain drops between 1 and 2 o’clock. For the rest of the night with winds diminished back to be flat by 3 o’clock. A very short wind event.
Satellite imagery is showing the storm started to dissipate about then and this morning the Sea from just north of La Paz to Concepción Bay and Guaymas has the storm’s numerous remnant clouds overhead. Looking outside it looks like they are starting to clear. They did give us a great sunrise this morning.
From pretty much the northern crossing north the skies are clear this morning.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see several high topped cells building between Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo this morning. There is a short break before the thumpers started again and from around Acapulco south to Central America a solid wall of thunderbumpers lined the coast.
The Tehuantepec had a big thumper over it and the isthmus was filled with mostly debris clouds from previous thunderbumpers.
The ITCZ/Monsoon trough is very active this morning with a solid broad line of thunderbumpers all the way out to around 135 this morning.
Now, looking in out Tropical Kitchen this morning. Yesterday afternoon, as advertized, a second low popped up a couple hundred miles SW of Manzanillo. I think that within minutes it was designated invest 94 echo and the good folks at the National Hurricane Center are saying that this will be the next hurricane in the basin. It is progged to gradually develop and then on Thursday start moving NNW and the early tracks having it passing to the west of the cape and paralleling the Baja peninsula late next week into the weekend. The name will be Ivo.
Where do they get these names? I have never heard of a person called Ivo. This sounds more like something that comes out of a bottle and is a cure of Montezuma’s revenge. Here have a swig of Ivo. That should cure that.
I digress. There is another low to the west of 94 echo that is moving west and approaching cooler water. They are only giving it a marginal chance of any further development. It if it did it would most likely be short lived.
That is what is going on in our Tropical Kitchen for the next couple of days. The long range models are showing that Thursday though Sunday the Sea will be seeing some strong winds mostly in the mid 20s and in some locations a bit higher. That is a ways out and there will be minor changes but it does not look like a great weekend to plan a picnic.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where that low off the central California coast continues to advect moisture from the south bringing mostly cloudy skies over California. Last night the bay area recorded 11,000 cloud to ground lightning strikes in a 4 hour period. That’s impressive even if most were over water. No rain was reported from these storms. There is still a lot of instability in the region and all signs point to at least a chance of more thunderbumper activity today and tonight for northern California.
In southern California they are calling that low off the coast a cut-off low and it should linger along the west coast through much of the next week keeping a mild air mass in place. An unsettled weather pattern will continue in the southland today as the low starts to move north. It should then clear up for the rest of the work week then another surge of monsoonal moisture is progged to arrive this weekend bring a chance of showers and thunderbumper over the weekend.
Looking now over to the southwest this image is showing some remnant cloudiness over the Tucson area and the rest of the state is pretty much cloud free. The forecast is for the upper high to begin to weaken and shift to the east. Under the high there is still enough moisture around for a chance of some afternoon and evening thunderbumpers. It looks like next weekend will bring an increase in the thunderbumpers with the possible influx of tropical moisture from the south.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence in general the next three days will see southerly winds. Mid teens today and tomorrow and high teens on Thursday.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light NE today and tomorrow then on Thursday mid teens from the SE.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: mid teens from the east of SE for the next 3 days.
The Baja side of the central Sea: mid teens from the east or SE for the next 3 days.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands: Mostly light SE for the 3-day forecast period. For La Paz light to moderate SE today and tomorrow then on Thursday around 20 from the SE.
The East Cape: SE winds over the 3-day forecast period. Today light, tomorrow moderate, Thursday around 23.
The Mexican Riviera: light to moderate SE or SW for the next 3 days.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that yesterday that low that is sitting off the central California coast has been advecting moisture from along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough toward the low. On the way north some of the whispys in this moisture plume slid east over the Baja peninsula and into the Sea. Not enough to block the sun but a thin veil could be seen yesterday afternoon. We could see more of this today.
In general that was it for any cloudiness in the Sea yesterday and last night. Over in Sonora starting in the early evening there has been a lot of thunderbumper activity moving toward the Fence. It looks like around 10 o’clock last night a large cell build and then crossed the Fence just south of Tucson and for a couple of hours sat over that area. This morning the far northern Sea has scattered remnant clouds that will most likely clear by mid morning.
Looking now south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera where there has been considerable thunderbumper activity along the coast over night and this morning there are remnants of these storms as well as new thumpers building south of Manzanillo. The heaviest concentration is from Zihuatanejo south to Central America.
This ITCZ/Monsoon trough is also very active this morning with numerous thunderbumper all along the trough out to around 130.
In our Tropical Kitchen this morning it looks like our tropical honeymoon will be coming to an end this week with a couple of lows developing off the west coast of Mexico. Both are, or will be, in an area where environmental conditions are conductive for tropical development.
There is not much going on there right now except scattered showers and thunderbumpers, however it looks like mid week we should see some development from these systems. If named they will be “I” and “J” names. The “J” named storms have historically been butt kickers for Baja. We’ll see?
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 in the Great Northwest will continue to see some light rain along the coast and in the northern Cascades. This should end by tomorrow with dry in the forecast for the rest of the week.
In northern California a nearly stationary upper low will remain off the central California coast that is drawing moisture up from the south. Most of the convective activity has been confined to the Sierras and over the southern end of the state. There remains a probability that the north state could see some thunderbumper activity later this week thus increasing the fire starts by lightning.
In southern California that low will continue to bring a threat of scattered showers and isolated thunderbumpers over the mountains and the northern deserts. The low is progged to lift north around Thursday which will result in seasonal norms returning to the southland.
Looking now over to the southwest where an upper level ridge will remain straddling the Arizona/New Mexico border. This is keeping the monsoon at bay but under the high there is enough moisture for afternoon and evening showers and thunderbumpers.
Temperatures will continue to be in triple digits. Tucson today around 101 and Yuma to the west will be up around 111.
Satellite and radar imagery is showing that most to the thunderbumper activity took place early last night. This morning cloudiness blankets most of the state with mostly remnant clouds from last night’s activities.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on his side of the Fence it looks like the first part of the week will see light to moderate winds. Long range it looks like the last part will see strong winds in the Sea.
Here are the wind details for the first 3 days of the week.
The Northern Sea: light ESE today, light NE tomorrow, and moderate SE on Wednesday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: light WSW today and tomorrow and moderate SE on Wednesday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: moderate winds over the next 3 days. Today and tomorrow from the SE and Wednesday NE.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light SE winds for the 3-day forecast period.
The East Cape: southerly winds for the next 3 days. Today light, tomorrow moderate and Wednesday strong to around 20 knots.
The Mexican Riviera: it looks like mostly light SE winds for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez has been pretty much cloud free for the past 24 hours. This morning there are some whispys in the far northern corner of the Sea but that’s it.
Looking over to Sonora where they have had virtually no thunderbumper activity in the past 24 hours.
Looking now south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera. I can see a fairly large, high topped cell just of the coast of Cabo Corrienties this morning. To the south there have been many thunderbumper during the night and many are still active.
In the Gulf of Tehuantepec and the Tehuantepec isthmus there has been considerable convection for the past 24 hours. There is a low developing just to the east of the Bay of Campache on the eastern end of the isthmus. The gradient between this and the relatively high in the Pacific should enhance the winds in the Gulf. However the current forecast is for winds around 10 knots for the next 3 days in the Gulf of Tehuantepec. Go figure?
There is also considerable convection all along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough that is pretty much tracking along 10N.
In our Tropical Kitchen this morning we have a wanna-be low about 500 miles SW of Acapulco that will probably become our next tropical storm early next week as is moves WNW at around 10 knots. Today and tomorrow the basin should be storm free.
Over in the Atlantic there are three Tropical Waves. One just left Africa so it’s about a week away. The next is over the Lesser Antilles and the last one is around 74W passing over Hispaniola.
Not much of a chance that any of this band of waves will be interacting with lows in our hood.
That’s what is happening in our hood this morning. Looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image I can see that the Great Northwest will be seeing light showers along the coast and in the northern Cascades.
In northern California there is a low off the coast that will be bringing a good chance of showers this evening. It’s forecast to slide south tomorrow and remain rather stationary through Tuesday morning. This period of time appears to be when the shower and thunderbumper activity will be the greatest. The low is forecast to lift to the north Tuesday through Wednesday evening bringing an end of the showers and a gradual warming trend for the later part of next week.
In southern California that low off of the northern California coast will pull moisture from the south and a chance of showers and isolated thunderbumpers over the mountains and deserts. For the first part of next week it will be hot in the southland with inland temperatures in triple digits.
Looking now over to the southwest where the prognosticators at the National Weather Service have been suggesting all week that today the southwest should see a return to the monsoon. Well, strong ridging over head is keeping serious moisture from moving up from the south; however there is enough moisture under the high to bring a good chance of showers and thunderbumpers in the afternoons and evenings with the best chances for measurable rainfall to be over the higher terrain to the north and east. Until the high weakens and moves off to the east it will remain hot over the southwest with temperatures in triple digits.
Before leaving the southwest I want to mention that eleven states across the west are suffering under brutal Blazes as forecasters are warning that more wildfires could break out soon with strong winds and dry conditions in Idaho, Utah and Hawaii. That’s right I said Hawaii. They are saying that any fires are expected to exhibit extreme fire behavior. Over 3 million acres have burned so far, and several thousand firefighters are on the fire-lines this morning.
Back on this side of the Fence the only place we have wild fires is right around the Fence but not much further south.
Our winds in Baja for the next two days will be light to moderate southerlies and on Tuesday the light winds will come from the NE.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: moderate SE today, light SE tomorrow and Light NE on Tuesday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: light mostly SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
The Baja side of the central Sea: in general light to moderate SE winds for the 3-day forecast period. The exception are Punta Chivato and Punta Concepción which are forecast to have light to moderate NE on Monday and Tuesday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light SE today, light SW tomorrow and light SE on Tuesday.
The East Cape: just mostly light southerlies for the next 3 days.
The Mexican Riviera: light, mostly SW winds for the next 3 days.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea in general has been cloud free after the morning whispys cleared yesterday. Yesterday morning there was a big honk’n cell that developed just off of Puerto Vallarta and moved across the Sea and passed to the south of the cape late yesterday morning.
This morning there is some cloudiness south of the cape that is drifting NW and passing to the west of the cape so the skies should be clear in the cape region later this morning. The southern crossing also looks clear this morning.
Looking now over to Sonora where this time of year we can expect to see storms of various sizes build normally around the Los Mochas area and drift north toward the Fence. That was the case yesterday afternoon and part of one cell drifted out into the Sea around the Guaymas area. It looks to be breaking up now.
Several of the cells that kept moving toward the Fence they ended up in the NW corner of the state with a few crossing the Fence into the Tucson area. This morning it’s just a little cloudy along the Fence.
Looking now south along the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera where it’s thunderbumper city from Zihuatanejo south to well into Central America. The Tehuantepec is forecast to have light winds over the 3-day forecast period, however this morning the Gulf and the isthmus have numerous thunderbumpers working overhead that do not looks like they will be ending soon.
The ITCZ/Monsoon trough is very active this morning with lots of thumpers working along 10N.
There is a weak low embedded in the zone this morning that the National Hurricane Center is giving a 10% chance of any tropical development and that’s the only thing of any interest in our Tropical Kitchen this morning.
There are a couple of Tropical Waves out in the Atlantic this morning. One is out around 54W and the other a bit closer at 68W is passing over Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic this morning. It does not look like either of these will make it to the Eastern Pacific basin. We’ll see?
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 where if you look carefully at this image you can see smoke rising from the Seattle area. This is nothing the fire department is worried about, it is day two of Seattle’s Hempfest where an estimated 85,000 pot smoking friends will celebrate in several of Seattle’s parks the legalization of pot in Washington State. There will be chance of a light shower this afternoon but otherwise the weather is perfect for a party on the grass (a little pun there)
OK I know I digress.
In northern California there is a low off the coast that will be bringing a good chance of showers to the inland valleys and foothills over the weekend.
In southern California high pressure aloft will remain in place through tomorrow with near normal temperatures at the coast and above normal temperatures inland. That low off the northern California coast will sink south early next week with a cooling trend and a deeper marine layer into midweek.
Looking now over to the southwest where earlier satellite imagery was showing some thunderbumpers sneaking across the Fence during the night. This morning this image is showing mostly whispys over the Tucson area.
There is an upper level ridge that will remain centered over the region through Monday when it will begin to weaken and shift slightly to the east. There is currently enough low and mid level moisture under the high to allow for isolated to scattered afternoon and evening showers and thunderbumper to develop over the weekend. Low to moderate grade monsoon conditions are expected for the region for the upcoming workweek.
Well that is what is gong on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence with the exception of the northern crossing area which is looking at moderate northerlies or easterlies the rest of the Sea should be seeing light to moderate southerlies.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light winds for the next 3 days. Today for the east, tomorrow SE and Monday NE.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: light SW today and tomorrow and NW on Monday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: the models are showing the points Chivato and Concepción Bay will be see light to moderate NE winds for the 3-day forecast period. This is a bit odd as the rest of the Sea will be see SE winds for the 3-day forecast period.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light SE today and Sunday then light SW on Monday.
The East Cape: just light southerlies for the next 3 days.
The Mexican Riviera: Light to moderate SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that there has been a lot of thunderbumper activity close to the coast in central Sonora last evening and during the night. Several cells built close to the Sonoran coast but did not extend out into the Sea except for the remnant clouds associated with them.
In the southern Sea a cell developed over Los Mochas and did move out into the Sea. It has dissipated now with just some scattered remnant clouds in the area.
So this image is showing some scattered cloudiness from around La Paz to around Santa Rosalia this morning. These should burn off by mid morning.
Looking now south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera and I can see a big honk’n high topped cell that has been building for several hours between Puerto Vallarta and Mazatlan this morning. It would appear that it is gaining strength. By 6:30 it had spread all the way across the Sea to the blanket the cape from San Jose del Cabo to La Paz. The high tops are now gone but this is still a significant storm with most likely some strong winds in the southern crossing this morning.
Further south, to the south of Cabo Corrienties, there is some cloudiness along the coast but no thunderbumper activity until your get around Acapulco. There are several very active cells in that region.
The Tehuantepec is still seeing 25k winds but the skies are clear over the Gulf and isthmus this morning.
Looking in our Tropical Kitchen this morning where we have a wanna-be low about 650 miles SW of the cape this am. Even though it is in an environmentally friendly area for tropical development, they are not giving it much of chance of further development in the next 5 days. Sometimes these lows don’t read these forecasts so just for safety sake well keep an eye on this low.
There are a few Tropical Waves in the Atlantic but most have found a low to stimulate and it does not look favorable for any of this crop of waves to make it to the Pacific side.
So it looks like this weekend the Eastern Pacific basin will not be seeing any storms.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the Great Northwest continues to see scattered showers this morning but will then clear up for Seattle’s weekends annual Hempfest. Seattle police have no plans to issue citations to dope-smoking revelers and will be handing out packages of Doritos instead. Party on dudes!
Northern California will continue to have typical August summer days with coastal fog lifting later in the mornings and hot and dry inland. Sacramento will see temperatures in the mid 90s today.
Southern California has high pressure that will be lingering over the region into tomorrow bringing above normal temperatures inland. Coastal morning clouds and fog along the coast are keeping the temperatures around normal close to shore. A low will then move over the region into the middle of next week and bring a cooling trend and a deeper marine layer.
Looking now over to the southwest where moisture will gradually increase into the weekend and will result the chances of showers and thunderbumpers across south-central and eastern Arizona. The heat will continue though at least through tomorrow with expected highs around 5 degrees above normal. Tucson will be seeing highs today around 102 and to the west Yuma will see highs today around 115. That two story thermometer at Needles will also be showing 115 degrees this afternoon.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence in general we will have two more days of light northerlies before the winds swing back to the south of Sunday.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light NE today and tomorrow and then moderate SE on Sunday.
The central Sea, Sonoran side: moderate SW today, light westerlies tomorrow and then moderate southerlies on Sunday.
The central Sea, Baja side: light to moderate NE today and tomorrow and then moderate southerlies on Sunday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands: light winds for the next 3 days. Today from the east or NE. tomorrow the SW and then on Sunday SE.
The East Cape: light NE today then light SE over the weekend.
The Mexican Riviera will continue to see light to moderate SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that big honk’n cell that was over Hermosillo yesterday morning cleared the Sea by mid morning. By mid afternoon another band of cells moving in from Texas into the Hermosillo area and built all night and is now just starting to dissipate. The system is in the NW corner of Sonora and clouds from it are spread out from the northern crossing to the Fence this morning.
To the south of the northern crossing the skies looks clear all the way to the cape this morning.
Looking now over to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see a nice honker just off Cabo Corrienties this morning. Further south there are no thunderbumpers along the coast but there is a lot of cloudiness from storms earlier in the morning. Several locations along the Mexican Riviera reported around a quarter inch of rain from these storms since midnight.
There is some cloudiness on the Caribbean side of the Tehuantepec isthmus this morning that is coming from a Tropical Wave that is moving through the Yucatan channel this morning and had hooked up with a low there and has been designated a tropical depression. It is also generating some 25 knot winds in the Tehuantepec isthmus that should be there for a couple of days.
There are several Tropical Waves in the Atlantic of which one may make it to the Eastern Pacific basin. There is a Tropical Wave just passing over the Cape Verde islands that has been up graded to a tropical depression, so it won’t make it over here. The other one I just mentioned that’s in the Yucatan Channel this morning and has been designated as a tropical depression. Our only hope is one out around 54W and that’s 4-5 days away. So even though this is the start of our serious hurricane season for the Sea of Cortez it does not looks like we will have anything brewing in our Tropical Kitchen through the weekend. We’ll see?
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 weak cold front will move across western Washington later today and tomorrow bringing a chance of showers through Saturday. An upper ridge will probably bring a return to fair summer weather Sunday through the middle of next week.
For California a high will reside over the state into Saturday with near normal temperatures along the coast and slightly above normal temperatures inland. A little coastal summer fog and warm and dry inland.
Looking now over to the southwest where most of the thunderbumper activity will take place on the south side of the Fence this week. There is a chance of isolated to scattered afternoon and evening thunderbumpers but in general dry weather will last another couple of days but by the end of this week into the weekend an increase in moisture will result in a better chance of showers across south-central and eastern Arizona. Sunday looks like a good day for some thunderbumper activity in the southwest.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence with the exception of the far northern Sea, the Sea should be seeing light to moderate northerlies over the next 3 days.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The Northern Sea, the far northern Sea: light southerlies. The bay of la area: light east or NE for the next 3 days.
The central Sea, Guaymas side: strong to 20NW for the next two days before becoming light again from the NW.
The Central Sea, Baja side: mid teens from the E or NE for the 3-day forecast period.
The southern Sea: The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light mostly SE for the next 3 days.
The East Cape: light winds for the 3-day forecast period. Today from the NW, tomorrow and Saturday SE.
The Mexican Riviera: they will continue to have light to moderate SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the cell that was over the Guaymas area yesterday morning took a long time to clear and for a good part of the day the central Sea had high whispys. The rest of the Sea was pretty much cloud free all day.
I did note that a cell developed in the East Cape yesterday afternoon and it’s possible that it could have been a rain producer.
Last night a cell developed a bit to the north of Los Mochas gradually getting larger. Early this morning it was centered over Guaymas and the outer edges were extending almost all the way across the northern crossing. By 5am it had moved further north and east and was centered over Hermosillo with the remnant clouds spread out from around Puerto Escondido north to the bay of LA and as well as Bahia Puerto Nuevo and Puerto Panesco.
Most likely we will be seeing these clouds until mid morning.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera where there has been thunderbumpers building and dissipating all night and they continue this morning from around Manzanillo south to central America. The Gulf of Tehuantepec and the isthmus have thunderbumpers working over it this morning.
Looking in our Tropical Kitchen this morning I can see the only item of interest is that low that the National Hurricane Center has been yo-yoing for the past couple of days with estimates of future tropical development ranging from 10 to 70%. This morning they are giving it a 20% chance of development into a storm. Even if it does it is 1200 miles SW of the cape and will have no affect on our weather here.
Looking over into the Atlantic for Tropical Waves I can see there are three headed our way. One is passing over Cuba this and will most likely develop into an Atlantic storm before it gets here. Another has just left Africa. Another is a little closer but way out at around 38W and there is another crossing Puerto Rico this morning.
Long range models are showing not much happening the Eastern Pacific basin for the next 4-5 days. We’ll see?
That’s what is going on in out hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image Seattle will have a chance of some showers this evening and overnight. Then dry and a slight warming trend into the weekend.
Oregon and northern California are under a typical August summer patter with coastal fog in the morning and warm temperatures in the 90s inland.
In southern California high pressure will be in control of the weather until the end of the week. Tomorrow they could see some moisture spread into the region bringing a chance of some thunderbumper action in the mountains but the coast and the inland empire will see a warming trend into the weekend.
Looking now over to the southwest where this image is showing the state to have some high whispys over it. That storm over Hermosillo is just reaching the Fence in the far SE corner of the state. That is where if any the thunderbumper activity will take place into the weekend. The lower deserts are forecast to remain dry and hot into the weekend.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence depending on where you are you could be seeing light to moderate winds from all four quadrants.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: moderate SE today and tomorrow then light NE on Friday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: light SW today. Moderate NW tomorrow and then strong (to 20) NW on Friday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: Mid to low teens for the next 3 days. Today east, tomorrow north and Friday NW. I’m a bit iffy about Friday’s forecast for NW winds. We’ll see?
The southern Sea the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands: light SW today and tomorrow and then light SE on Friday.
The East Cape: light winds for the 3-day forecast period. Today and Friday NE, tomorrow SW,
The Mexican Riviera: light winds for the next 3 days mostly SW.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that yesterday that cell that developed over Puerto Vallarta then moved across the Sea blanket the East Cape from La Paz to Cabo brought drizzle according to local bloggers in the area. It passed over the cape and by around 3 O’clock the skies were pretty much clear over the cape.
Over night there has been considerable thunderbumper activity along the Sonoran coast especially between los Mochas and the Guaymas area. Several of these cells moved out into the Sea overnight and at 6am this morning one was centered over Guaymas and stretched almost all the way across the Sea. This morning there are scattered remnant clouds from just north of La Paz to Santa Rosalia on the Baja coast and Guaymas on the Sonoran side.
Within these remnant clouds this image is showing several cells that remain hot between Puerto Escondido and Concepcion Bay. An eyeball outside showed no lightning in the area at 5am. At 6am this image is showing several small cells back in the mountains, not near the coast.
From around San Francisquito bay north the skies look to be clear this morning.
Looking now south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see some remnant cloudiness from Mazatlan to Cabo Corrienties this morning. Then the coast is clear to just south of Zihuatanejo where a solid line of thumpers line the coast south well into Central America. The Gulf of Tehuantepec has a large tall cell sitting on top of it right now.
Looking now in our Tropical Kitchen where yesterday at this time a low about a 1000 miles SW of the cape was given a slight chance of tropical development by the National Hurricane Center. When I checked at 10 o’clock they had given it a 70% chance. Now this morning it’s back to a 40% chance of tropical development in the next 48 hours. I could not find if the Navy has designated this as an invest at this time.
It’s really a mute issue because even if it becomes a full blown hurricane it will not affect the weather in Baja.
Remember our old friend Hurricane Henrietta. She left our hood as a tropical depression, became a tropical storm then on her way to Hawaii become a cat 1 then a cat 2 hurricane. For a while it looked like she was going to pass over Hawaii as a tropical storm but she started swinging to the south yesterday and is now passing the islands to the south as a tropical depression. She has been a active storm for a little over a week. That’s a long time for a Pacific storm.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where this image is showing that with the exception of some cloudiness in eastern Oregon and the Cascades the west coast will be enjoying mostly sunshine today with seasonal August temperatures. There is nothing in the forecast into this weekend that looks like that will change.
In southern California a low will linger along the west coast through Wednesday. High pressure from the east will be trying to rebuild for the latter part of the work week. Some subtropical moisture may spread into the southland on Thursday and Friday bringing some buildup in the mountains but the coast should remain dry.
Looking now over to the southwest where dry weather will continue for south-central Arizona. This image is showing clear skies and any cloudiness is in the far SE corner of the state. Most of the moisture is moving up into New Mexico. It there are any thunderbumpers this week they will be in this area, mostly in the higher terrain.
The dry weather will continue for the lower deserts for most if not all of the week with temperatures on the rise.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like in general the moderate SE winds will continue for the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The Northern Sea: mid to low teens for the 3-day forecast period.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: moderate SE today, light SW tomorrow and Thursday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: high teens today from the SE. Mid teens tomorrow from the SE and light NE winds on Thursday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands: light SW winds for the next 3 days.
The East Cape: light SE today, lighter Westerlies tomorrow and lighter winds with a northern flavor on Thursday.
The Mexican Riviera: in general light to moderate SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see I very large high topped cell extending from Mazatlan to San Jose del Cabo. To the north the outer reaches of the cell extend to around Puerto Escondido. This is one big honk’n storm.
Yesterday afternoon moisture started pouring in from across Mexico and the Gulf of Mexico and funneling into the Puerto Vallarta/Mazatlan are. During the late afternoon and all night this storm has been building.
There was another cell that developed over los Mochas last night and the two have now merged into this one big storm. The remnant clouds extend south to Concepción Bay this morning.
South to Concepcion Bay it looks like the skies are clear this morning.
Looking back over to the Mexican Riviera the storm extends a bit south of Cabo Corrienties this morning and from there south the coast is clear to Central America this morning.
The Gulf of Tehuantepec is also clear and forecast to be having moderate winds over the 3-day forecast period.
Looking out into our Tropical Kitchen this morning there are now three rather weak lows strung out from just west of Cabo Corrienties to one around 125W and another around 145W. All of these lows have a relatively low chance of building into a tropical storm. The National Hurricane Center is giving them, at best, perhaps a 20% chance in the next 48 hours. The only one that could affect us is the one just west of Cabo Corrienties this morning. But again the good folks with the PhDs are saying ney, ney,ney. So it looks like there will be nothing cooking in the Tropical Kitchen for at least the first part of the 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 in the Great Northwest we have the only weather in the western conus this morning. The cascades will be seeing off and on thunderbumpers all week. Seattle could see some sprinkles later in the week.
The rest of the west coast will be having a typical summer August day. A little coastal fog in those places that have summer coastal fog and inland the temperatures will be in the low to mid 90s for northern California.
In southern California high pressure building in from the east has initiated a warming trend in the southland. A minor intrusion of monsoonal moisture will be bringing some afternoon clouds to the mountains later in the week. In the meantime a little coastal fog and the inland empire will be warm and dry.
Looking now over to the southwest where this image is showing some clouds moving up from Chihuahua into the SE corner of the state with most of the clouds moving into New Mexico. The forecast is for the week to start off dry then later in the week perhaps on Wednesday they could see a chances of some thunderbumper activity especially across the mountains and near the Fence.
High pressure is rebuilding over the southwest and this is leading to slowly rising temperatures. It also looks like the lower deserts won’t be seeing any rain until perhaps late in the week. Speaking of temperatures, both Needles and Yuma will be seeing temperatures in the 112-115 ranges this week. It is that thermal low that parks over this region that gives us our summer southerlies.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like our winds will have a southern flavor and be in the light to moderate ranges for the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light winds from the SE for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez has been relatively clear for the past 24 hours. The cape region has had some remnant clouds pass over from thunderbumpers over on the mainland but look relatively clear this morning.
Looking off to the west I can see that there is a fairly heavy fog bank hugging the coast from around Turtle Bay north to San Francisco California this morning.
Looking over to Sonora where the thunderbumper activity has been inland close to the Chihuahua border and the storms moved north mostly into the SW corner of New Mexico and the SE corner of Arizona last night.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see there has been considerable convection all over the SW portion of Mexico but not along the coast. There is a NW flow and these storms and the remnants of these storms are drifting toward the coast bringing mostly cloudy conditions to the coast with just a few small thumpers active around Zihuatanejo that morning.
The Tehuantepec remains relatively Calm this morning with just a few clouds in the isthmus and the Gulf.
Looking in our Tropical Kitchen this morning we continue to have a couple of wanna-bes well to the SW of the cape. The forecast is marginal for either of these to become a tropical storm over the next 4-5 days. Even if they do develop they are too far from us to have any effect on our weather.
There are a couple of Tropical Waves in the Atlantic; one is just entering the Caribbean and the other is well out embedded in the ITCZ/Monsoon trough around 23W. So not much help from either of these waves for the next couple of days
The bottom line is: As we stand on the cusp of the peak part of our hurricane season it looks like we will go through the weekend and into next week without a tropical storm or hurricane in our hood. All smiles here!
I noticed that this morning NOAA came out with their official 2013 hurricane forecast for the Atlantic. They give a 70% chance of an above-normal season; they predict a 70% chance that there will be 13 - 19 named storms, 6 - 9 hurricanes, and 3 - 5 major hurricanes. Perhaps in October they will get around to the Eastern Pacific basin. We’ll see?
OK, that’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where a low was forecast to slowly move off the California/Oregon border and move NW yesterday and end up off the Washington coast yesterday. Well that low is moving a lot slower than forecast and is now just off the SW Oregon coast, and will finally arrive off the Washington coast sometime tomorrow. This slowly system will continue to support a relatively moist and unstable air mass with scattered thunderbumper over the region into tomorrow. So scattered thunderbumper and showers from Portland to Seattle for the next 24 hours.
The rest of the west coast is seeing seasonal summer weather. Coastal fog in the mornings and in general 90 degree temperatures in the afternoons inland.
Looking over to the southwest I can see some cloudiness in the SE corner of Arizona this morning. The rest of the state looks clear. The forecast is for scattered showers and thunderbumper mainly to the east of Tucson today and this evening. That also looks like the forecast into the early part of next week. The lower deserts are forecast to remain dry through the weekend and next week with the chance of any thunderbumpers confined to the higher elevations.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence in general we are looking a moderate NE winds.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light NE today and tomorrow and then light SE on Tuesday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: Strong to 22 knots today from the NW. tomorrow light SW and Tuesday light SE.
The Baja side of the central Sea: moderate NE today and Monday then moderate SE on Tuesday.
On the cusp of north and south is Puerto Escondido and they should see light NE today, moderate SE on Monday and Tuesday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light NE today, strong to 23 from the SW tomorrow and moderate SW on Tuesday.
The East Cape: light winds from the NE today and the south on Monday and Tuesday.
The Mexican Riviera: mostly light SW over the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that again the Sea for the most part has been cloud free for the past 24 hours.
There has been some thunderbumper activity to the east of Los Mochas that moved out into the Sea before dissipating early this morning. There are still some debris clouds between La Paz and Los Mochas this morning but the rest of the Sea is pretty much clear.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera this morning I can see that from around Cabo Corrienties south there has been numerous thumpers build and dissipate along the coast last night. This morning there are a lot of remnant clouds in the area and a few thunderbumpers on the wane.
The Gulf of Tehuantepec and the isthmus are clear of any clouds this morning and the forecast continues to have light winds in the Gulf for the next couple of days.
Looking in our Tropical Kitchen this morning where there are a couple of wanna-be’s that are well southwest of the cape. One has a pretty good chance of developing into a tropical storm. Even if it does it is too far south and west to have any effect on land. That being said our friend Henrietta that is now a tropical storm is forecast to redevelop into a cat 1 hurricane again then later next week briefly a cat 2 storm and then Saturday pass over Hawaii as a tropical storm. We have not seen that in a couple of years.
Of note: yesterday I read a blog that downgraded the Atlantic hurricane season a bit from the earlier forecasts. Nothing was said about the Eastern Pacific basin, as usual. Perhaps later when they have nothing better to do they will update the forecast for the Eastern Pacific basin. We’ll see?
One other item: Often I use the phrase “wanna be’s” to reference lows that could develop into a tropical storm. My MS Word spell checker wants to change that to “cannabis”. Not sure what is going on there, but if that happens and I don’t catch it, well you know I meant to write “wanna be’s”. I digress.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the Great Northwest is the only place in the west that is having anything close to being called weather. There is an upper low centered over the California/Oregon border that is drifting north and NW and will be off shore later today. This will bring an increased chance of some thunderbumpers from Portland to Seattle through Sunday night. The weather will then transition back to the typical summer pattern of morning fog and afternoon sunshine along the coast and sunshine for the rest of the region.
For California high pressure will fill in the wake of the departing low that has been off the coast for a week. This will begin a warming trend that will continue through next week especially inland.
Looking now over to the southwest where the monsoon will be trying to monsoon this weekend as moisture moves back into southeast Arizona. Most of the thunderbumper activity will be east of Tucson over the weekend. Next week a low grade monsoon pattern will occur again mainly to the east of Tucson.
Dry weather will continue on the lower deserts through the weekend and next week. Rainfall chances will be relegated to the higher terrain of eastern Arizona. Skies will be generally clear with seasonal daytime highs.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the northern Sea will continue to see light to moderate southerlies today and the rest of the Sea will be seeing moderate northerlies today and tomorrow.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light SE today with moderate northerlies tomorrow and Monday.
The Guaymas side of the Central Sea: light NW today, Strong NW (to around 23) tomorrow and then light SW on Monday.
The Baja side of the Central Sea: moderate NE today. High teens tomorrow from the NW and then Monday moderate winds from the east.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light SE today, light NE tomorrow, and strong to 20 from the SW on Monday.
The East Cape: light winds for the 3-day forecast period all from a different direction. Today: NE, tomorrow NW, and Monday SW.
The Mexican Riviera: in general mostly moderate SW for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez has been cloud free for the past 24 hours.
Looking over to Sonora I can see that there has been a few small cells build in the southern part of the state but none got very big or lasted very long. This morning there are mostly remnant clouds left in southern Sonora.
Looking further south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see that there has been some, but not many thunderbumpers build over land and slowly move toward shore with a few rather small cells still active this morning along the coast.
Looking further south to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where there is a tall cell that completely blankets the Gulf this morning. The winds in the Gulf continue to be in the very light ranges.
Not much has changed in our Tropical Kitchen in the past 24 hours. Still a Cat 1 hurricane, Henriette has moved out of our hood and is now in the western Pacific.
In our hood we have two lows, one of which has a pretty good chance of becoming our next tropical storm over the weekend or early next week. It is currently 717 miles SW of Manzanillo this morning. The other low is further to the west and will be slower to develop.
What I found interesting is that of 5 O’clock this morning the Navy has not designated either of these systems as invests yet and the National Hurricane Center is giving the eastern system a 70% chance of tropical development. I checked two of my other models and several blogs this morning and none of those is showing these lows developing into a tropical storm in the next 5 days. This looks like a wait and see. So we will wait and see.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the only weather along the west coast is in the Great Northwest this morning. An upper ridge is over eastern Washington this morning and a low is slowly drifting north along the coast. This will bring a chance of showers and thunderbumper to western Washington this afternoon through the weekend. Sunshine is expected to return next week.
The rest of the west coast is having a typical August day. Coastal fog lingering into the late mornings and daytime highs in the 90s in the inland valleys.
In southern California low humidity, strong winds and hot weather have combined to exasperate the fire danger. There is a large fire burning in the mountains to the north of LA where about 1500 homes have been evacuated around Banning. This is just one of 32 fires burning in the west or northwest today.
Weather-wise a dry southwest flow aloft will continue into next week with low humilities for the mountains and deserts. The mountains and deserts will also be seeing gusterly SW winds each afternoon. The forecast is for not much in the way of any changes this weekend.
Looking over to the southwest where it will be generally dry again today. The flow aloft will again become more southerly this weekend thus bringing an increase in the afternoon and evening thunderbumper activity on Sunday. A low grade monsoon pattern is expected next week with more wet on the way.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence in general very moderate northerlies on tap for the next 3 days.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light to moderate east of NE today and tomorrow and NW on Sunday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: light SW today, light NW tomorrow and strong NW on Sunday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: mid teens for the next 3 days mostly from the east or NE.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands: mid teens today from the SE then light SE for the weekend.
The East Cape: mid teens today from the SE then light SE tomorrow and light NE on Sunday.
The Mexican Riviera: it looks like mostly light to moderate SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez has been cloud free for the past 24 hours.
Looking over to Sonora I can see that there has be virtually no thunderbumper activity over there in the past 24 hours.
Looking now south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera this morning where there have been several thunderbumpers building on land and moving toward the coast during the morning hours. Right now there are several thumpers working along the coast from Cabo Corrienties south to Manzanillo this morning.
In our Tropical Kitchen this morning we have a slightly weakened hurricane Henriette. She is expected to turn more westerly today then WSW over the next couple of days as she approaches colder water. She should be in our hood for a couple more days before she moves into the western Pacific. No danger to land from this storm.
There is a low that has popped up several hundred miles SW of Acapulco that should be our next tropical storm. This is smack-dab in the center of the birthing grounds of our August hurricanes and it looks like around the first part of next week it will be our next named storm and that name will be Ivo. These are supposed to be people’s names. I have never heard of a person named Ivo. Sounds like some kind of generic yogurt.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where a rather insignificant low that has been off the Oregon coast for a few days will move east today and the only effect will be the chance of some rain in the higher elevations in Oregon and northern California.
Otherwise just a summer pattern of fog along the coast and sunny and warm inland.
In southern California there continues to be a trough of low pressure along the coast and that will continue to bring cooler than average temperatures to the southland. High pressure is progged to build over the region this weekend and that will bring on a gradual warming trend through the middle of next week.
Looking now over to the southwest where this image is showing clear skies and the forecast is for a break in the monsoon with only limited thunderbumper activity the rest of the week as drier air moves in. This will also allow hotter daytime temperatures. They should see a return of the monsoon by early next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like, in general, these moderate northerlies will be with us for at least the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light NE for the next 3 days.
The central Sea, Guaymas side: light to moderate NW for the 3-day forecast period.
The central Sea, Baja side: low to mid teens from the NE for the next 3 days.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands: mostly light SE for the 3-day forecast period.
The East Cape: light winds for the 3-day forecast period. Today east, Tomorrow SE and Saturday NE.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan moderate SW the rest light SW for the next 3 days.

73s Y’all
On a final note, those of you that bring up the Weather Undergournd Wondermap. They now have a Beta version this is much better than the current on. Best feature is that it Loads much faster. Give it a look.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea has been virtually clear of any clouds for the past 24 hours.
Looking over to Sonora where they too have been relatively quiet for the past 24 hours with very little in the way of any thunderbumpers developing over the desert there.
Looking now south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera where most of the storms have taken place inland. There is some residual cloudiness from around Puerto Vallarta south to just south of Cabo Corrienties but no thumpers working along the coast this morning.
The Tehuantepec is clear of any clouds this morning and the forecast is for the light winds to continue.
In our Tropical Kitchen this morning we have the remnants of Gil and a weakening hurricane Henriette. She is still a cat 1 storm with gusts to around 100 mph. The models show the storm’s winds maxing out today and this evening, and then the storm will decay rapidly as it reaches cooler waters in around 36 hours.
Speaking of water temperatures, I noted that our Sea temperatures around the cape area warming up pretty much right on schedule. The developing storms will now have the warm waters of the cape and the southern Sea of Cortez to play in as we now start our serious 60 day Baja hurricane season.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the west coast is in a typical summer pattern with no extremes in the weather forecast for the next week from Seattle to San Diego. Just minor daily Temperature fluctuations with no rain in the forecasts.
Looking over to the southwest his morning where in this image I can see that the disturbance that brought widespread rain Monday with scattered showers and thunderbumpers yesterday is exiting the state to the northeast.
Drier air will spread into the desert southwest for a decrease in thunderbumper activity for the rest of the week allowing for warmer daytime temperatures.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like in general we will be having light to moderate winds for the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light SE today. Light NE for the next two days.
The central Sea, The Guaymas area: light to moderate NW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
The Baja side: light to moderate NE winds for the next 3 days.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands: light NW today, light SW tomorrow and light SE on Friday.
The East Cape: light northerly today then light SE for the next two.
The Mexican Riviera: north of Cabo Corrienties light NW. South of Cabo Corrienties light SW for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez is virtually clear of any cloudiness this morning.
Yesterday a different picture. Here in the cove we had a nice cell drift over in the afternoon and for about 2 hours we had almost a half inch of rain. Lots of heavy thunder claps and close by lightning.
I can see that in the early evening hours yesterday the skies started to clear and by midnight the skies were clear.
Looking over to Sonora I can see that yesterday it was a hotbed of thunderbumper activity. This morning the only clouds I can see are over in Chihuahua and along the Sierra Madre Occidentals.
Looking now south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see several thumpers working along the coast. One is just breaking up over Puerto Vallarta and Cabo Corrienties and further south a rather small thumper is over Zihuatanejo this morning.
There were several thumpers that crossed the Gulf of Tehuantepec over night, however at this time the Gulf is clear of any clouds.
Looking now in our Tropical Kitchen: As advertized Gil is history and Henriette is now a Cat 1 hurricane this morning. She will strengthen slightly but not up to Cat 2 status over the next 48 hours before entering cooler waters. A distinctive eye has formed overnight. She will continue to move NW over her lifespan and poses no danger to land.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America at the top of this image high pressure will dominate the weather in the Great Northwest most of the week and an upper low may trigger some showers and thunderbumpers over the Cascades over the weekend.
In northern California that upper low remains spinning off the California coast. It’s progged to move east late in the week with the potential to bring some rain inland to the north state this weekend.
In southern California that low to the north combined with night through morning low clouds and fog will continue below normal temperatures through the week. A warm up is expected by the weekend as a ridge builds back in.
Looking now over to the southwest where it is raining over most of SW Arizona this morning. The rain will give way to scattered showers and a few thunderbumpers this afternoon and evening. Thereafter drier air will spread into the desert southwest for a decrease in the monsoonal activity for the rest of the week. This drier air will also result in warmer daytime temperatures.
In this image I can see the disturbance that is bringing rain to the state slowly moving NE across the state this morning.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence for the most part the Sea will be seeing light to moderate NE winds for the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The Northern Sea: less than 10 for the next 3 days.
The central Sea, Guaymas/San Carlos area: light west or SW for the 3-day forecast period.
The central Sea, Baja side: mid teens from the NE today. Low teens from the NE for Wednesday and Thursday.
The southern Sea: the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands: light SE today, light SW tomorrow and Thursday.
The East Cape: low teens from the NE for the 3-day forecast period.
The Mexican Riviera: the Mazatlan area: Moderate SW. The rest mostly light SW for the next 3 days.

Sea of Cortez/Baja Weather for 08/05/13

By: Geary, 1:16 PM GMT on August 05, 2013

Monday, August 05, 2013

Voice to Text

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see a lot of clouds. All these are coming from thunderbumpers working their way north up the Sonoran desert pretty much following the Chihuahua border. .
At times last evening it was one solid thunderbumper from Los Mochas to the Fence. These are large storms, around several hundred miles in diameter and have extended well out into the Sea overnight.
Here in the cove we have been seeing gusts to around 20 knots since midnight off and on with a steady wind of around 10 knots that pretty much died around 6am.
As of 6am 90% of the Sea had 90% overcast and it looks like we will be seeing these remnant clouds at least until late morning, perhaps longer.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see that most of the thunderbumpers were inland and the coast is a little overcast but in general clear of any storms.
In our Tropical Kitchen this morning Brother Gil has pretty much run its course as a storm. It is now a tropical Depression and is forecast to pluto to a remnant low later today. The low that has been in Gil’s wake for the past 5 days has now become tropical storm Henriette. She is forecast to further develop into a Cat 1 hurricane later today. This system like Gil will pose no threat to land.
The blogger in La Paz continues to post that a Tropical Wave will be moving through the Gulf of Tehuantepec and interacting with an area of disturbed air and thunderbumpers in the region. Well, this guy is normally pretty sharp on these matters and I spent a lot of time trying to confirm the post. I could not. No tropical wave in the Gulf. No disturbed weather to the west of the Gulf. But, just in case, I’ll be watching that area again today. We’ll see?
OK, moving on! That’s what is going on in out hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where weather-wise not much is going on. Just some cloudiness along the coast and sunshine inland.
There is a trough off the west coast that is keeping temperatures slightly below seasonal averages for the start of the work week. The models continue to develop a cutoff low out of this early in the week and then for it to slowly drift toward northern California and then move slowly east-northeast over the weekend cooling things down a bit more.
In southern California that low will also affect the southland keeping temperatures below average and areas of morning fog each morning and evening. It will also be a bit gusterly in the deserts and mountains.
Looking now over to the southwest where they will be having weather in the form of afternoon and evening thunderbumpers. This image is showing a very large cell sitting on the Fence on the corner of Arizona, New Mexico and Chihuahua. It appears to be diminishing but earlier the tops were very cold and I’d suspect that system has produced a lot of wind and rain as it moved north during the night. I noted that the Island in the Sky had over an inch of rain since midnight. That’s getting wet in a hurry. He also had around 30 knot winds around 2am this morning. The forecast mentioned that the Tucson area could see some increased thunderbumper activity this morning then diminishing by mid morning. So far it looks like they are right on with the forecast.
The forecast further called for scattered mainly afternoon and evening thunderbumpers to continue through today and tomorrow then dry out into the middle of next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the Sea will be having an overcast morning and it may be late in the day before these clouds dissipate. We’ll see?
Wind-wise the forecast is continueing to show light to moderate southerlies on tap for the next 3 days.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light to moderate SE today and tomorrow then light NE on Wednesday.
The Central Sea, Guaymas area: Light winds for the next 3 days, less than 10. Today from the west. Tomorrow the south and Wednesday WNW.
The Baja side: the mid teens from the NE for the next 3 days.
The Central Sea: the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands light southerlies for the next 3 days.
The East Cape: low teens for the next 3 days. Today from the east, tomorrow SE and then on Wednesday NE.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan moderate SE for the next 3 days, the rest light to moderate SW.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that with the exception of some scattered whispys the Sea is pretty much clear this morning.
Looking over to the mainland and Sonora I can see there was plenty of thunderbumper activity in the Sonoran deserts last night. Most are on the wane now. There has been numerous thunderbumpers that crossed the Fence into the Tucson area since yesterday afternoon.
Looking now south of the cape and along the west coast of Mexico and I can see there has been numerous thunderbumpers working all along the coast overnight, many still very active this morning.
Further south the Gulf of Tehuantepec is clear this morning with very light winds in their 3-day forecast period.
In out Tropical Kitchen this morning Himicane Gil has been plutoed to a tropical storm. There are still wanna-be lows in front and in back of Gil. With Gil weakening, the following one now has a better chance of tropical development. The one up front is moving into cold water so I would be surprised if the forecasters even mention it again.
The tropical wave that I though would enter the basin this weekend is now forecast to dissipate within the next 24 hours over the higher terrain of central and southern Mexico.
So with the exception of this trio of lows marching west toward Hawaii this morning it does not look like there will be anything else cooking in the Tropical Kitchen over the weekend.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where Seattle will see cool umbrella weather today that will give way to increasing sunshine with warming temperatures over the rest of the weekend and into early next week.
For the rest of the west coast there will not be a change in the weather for the next week. Coastal fog and inland temperatures in the 90s for northern California.
In southern California an upper level trough off the coast will keep the southland dry through the end of next week. Temperatures will be at or slightly below average for early August.
Looking now over to the southwest where they should see periods of sunshine today before giving way to heavy thunderbumpers this afternoon and evening. Lots of moisture in the air so there is a threat of heavy rainfall today. Flash flooding could keep the rescue folks busy up there today.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence in general the Sea will have a southern flow. That being said today from around San Francisquito by south to Concepción Bay moderate northerlies are again forecast for today.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light SE for the next 3 days
The central Sea, Sonoran side: moderate NW today then light SW for Sunday and Monday.
The Baja side: moderate NE today then moderate SE for the next two days.
The southern Sea: the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands: light SW today swinging to the SE for Sunday and Monday.
The East Cape: E or ESE over the next 3 days light today then mid teens for Sunday and Monday.
The Mexican Riviera: should see light to moderate SW or NW winds over the next 3 days.

Voice to Text

Looking down into the Sea this morning looking at the 24 hour loop I can see that that large cell that brought rain, winds and overcast skies to central and southern Baja yesterday morning moved off to the west of the peninsula late yesterday morning with the Sea finally clearing around noon.
This morning there are some debris clouds moving north along the Mexican Riviera into the southern crossing and the cape region but the rest of the Sea looks pretty much cloud free.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see there has been considerable thunderbumper activity along the coast since late yesterday afternoon. As I mentioned the debris clouds from these systems are moving north into the mouth of the Sea and over the cape region. These are rather low clouds with most of the moisture already gone, so it does not look like any threat of rain will be with them.
Further south the Gulf of Tehuantepec is clear of any clouds this morning and the forecast is for very light winds for the 3-day forecast period.
Looking now into our Tropical Kitchen where we have himicane Gil slowly moving west with a wanna-be behind him and another wanna-be up in front. So we have this trio of storms or wanna-be storms pretty much tracking along with the ITCZ/Monsoon trough this morning.
Both of the wanna-be’s could develop into tropical storms but the one up in front has a better chance. The one in the wake of Gil is running into disruptive air from Gil. Gil is forecast hang in there as a himicane for the next 48 hours then weaken.
Looking east for any tropical waves headed out way I can see one just left Africa and is now around the Cape Verde islands and the other is much closer to home. It is stretched out from the Yucatan to Northern Guatemala. It will be moving into the Eastern Pacific basin this weekend. The water vapor imagery is showing a lot of moisture in the ITCZ/Monsoon trough but otherwise the basin is relatively dry so when this wave does come through there may not be much in the basin for it to interact with. We’ll see?
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north and the only weather on the entire west coast is of course in the Great Northwest. That low that has been off the coast for about a week finally started to move east and in the process will bring showers to Seattle and thunderbumpers to the Cascades over the weekend.
The rest of the west coast will be having seasonal warm weather with nothing in the forecast to change that.
Southern California will see coastal fog throughout the weekend and gusterly winds in the deserts in the afternoon and evenings.
Looking now over to the southwest where the monsoon will be monsooning into mid next week. This image is showing a lot of clouds over the southwest and the forecast is for afternoon and evening thunderbumpers.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence in general the winds will have a southern flavor for the next 3 days. The exception will be the northern crossing, maybe. Moderate NE winds are being forecast. We’ll see?
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light southerlies for the 3-day forecast period.
The central Sea, Guaymas side: light southerlies today then light NW over the weekend.
The Baja side: light to moderate ENE for the next 3 days.
The southern Sea: the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light to moderate SW for the 3-day forecast period.
The East Cape: light winds for the next 3 days. Today from the NE then SE over the weekend.
The Mexican Riviera: the Mazatlan area mostly moderate SW winds over the next 3 days. Puerto Vallarta south light to moderate NW breezes.

Voice to Text

Looking down into the Sea this morning first with the 24 hour loop I can see that there has been and still is a lot of activity in the Sea of Cortez. Starting around 10 O’clock last night a MCS’s started to develop as a thunderstorm around Puerto Vallarta . Within a short period of time it spread north as an MCS’s (mesoscale Convective system) which is a complex of thunderbumpers that has become better organized on a scale larger than the individual thunderbumpers but smaller than a hurricane. By 11 O’clock last night it had stretched across the Sea and this image was showing it on top of La Paz.
After midnight the strength continued but did not get stronger and it has remained about the same strength since then. This image is showing a large cell spread out from La Paz on the Baja peninsula to around Hermosillo in Sonora. Debris clouds spread north to the Bay of LA.
The winds here in Concepción Bay started around 4am and have been in the 18-24 knot ranges. There was lots of lightning but too far away to hear any thunder until around 6:30 where I could start Tehuantepec here some thunder in the area. We also started to see some sprinkles about that time that have continued up until this broadcast.
I checked La Paz and they were having only 12-14 knot winds at 4am with their highest gust being 16 knots overnight.
It looks like it is going to take a while for this system to wind down. In the meantime the Sea of Cortez will be rainy, windy with unpredictable gusts and cloudy. Guasave Radar is showing the system starting to decay at around 6am this morning.

This would NOT be a good morning to be moving around!

Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see there has been several thunderbumper working around the Puerto Vallarta and Cabo Corrienties area and further south around Zihuatanejo over night.
The Gulf of Tehuantepec is clear of any clouds this morning and is forecast to have light winds for the 3-day forecast period.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific basin this morning we have Himicane Gil that is around 750 miles SW of the cape this morning as a CAT 1 Himicane. He is still in warm waters and stands a good chance of developing into a CAT 2 storm over the next couple of days.
On the heels of Gil we have invest 90E, a wanna-be. Brother Gill is sucking up most of the moisture in the region. 90 Echo will probably become a tropical storm Henriette today but will not make hurricane status.
Neither of these storms should pose any threat to land.
So lots going on in the Tropical Kitchen this morning. A MCS’s over in Sonora, a himicane and what will probably be a tropical storm later today. We’ll see?
Well, 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 off the coast of Washington there is a low that has been there for a couple of days and it’s starting to move east today. It will bring with it showers, mostly in the Cascades.
As the low moves east it could bring a chance of showers to extreme northern California but the Sacramento and San Joaquin valleys will continue to have mostly clear skies and temperatures in the low to mid 90s into the weekend.
In southern California a low off the coast will create night and morning coastal fog and inland areas will be a tad gusterly through tomorrow. Saturday a high will press in from the east and reduce the marine layer into Monday. Temperatures next week will linger below normal with a warming trend on tap by midweek.
Looking now over to the southwest where the monsoon will be monsooning into early next week with gradually cooler temperatures.
There are a low of debris clouds in the region from the MCS that moved up to the Fence, but did not cross last night. The outflow from this will likely send more moisture into the southwest and they will see an uptick in there thunderbumper activity today. We’ll see?
That’s what is happening to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it is windy where I am this morning. There is a good lightning show off to the east and just sprinkles so far.
You can normally toss the forecasts in the can while we are experiencing one of these Sea of Cortez storms. Never the less here is today’s forecast. It looks like light to moderate southerlies for the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: Low teens from the SE for the next 3 days.
The Central Sea: mid teens from the SE, a bit lighter on the Sonoran side for the 3-day forecast period.
The southern Sea: around the islands and the San Lorenzo Channel light SW. La Paz mostly light SE for the next 3 days.
The East Cape: mostly light SE of ESE for the 3-day forecast period.
The Mexican Riviera: light to moderate SW for the next 3 days.
I repeat:
This would NOT be a good morning to be moving around!
