Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez has been cloud free for the past 24 hours.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera where it too is pretty much cloud free this morning. In fact most of Mexico including Sonora and the Tehuantepec region had been pretty much cloud free for the past 24 hours. Oh there have been a few fluffys here and there and around Mexico City where the forecast is just for cloudy skies today, not the normal summer showers that they have been having almost daily for the past month.
The only item of interest is a weak low west of Manzanillo. It is forecast to just park out there for a couple of days and die.
I’m not even going to put it on a back burner in our Tropical Kitchen
this morning. There is nothing tropical in the Tropical Kitchen this morning and there is nothing tropical on the horizon.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the second or third of a series of storms will be moving though the Great Northwest today. More rain, the heaviest on the western facing slopes of the Cascades today. Due to how slow these systems are moving parts of Washington and northern Oregon will be vulnerable to flash flooding through this evening.
In northern California light scattered rain showers are expected to start this morning and last most of the day with clearing tomorrow. Most of the rain will be in along the coast and in the upper Sacramento valley.
In southern California it will be sunny and warm today but tomorrow through Thursday it will be gradually cooler. High pressure is progged to start to rebuild on Friday into the weekend warming the southland back up a bit.
Looking now over to the southwest where this image is showing clear skies. The southwest is expected to see temperatures a tad above seasonal norms. A cold Pacific storm will move through the Great Basin Thursday and Friday just brushing Arizona but cooling off the state a bit.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the region will be seeing moderate winds and lots of sunshine for the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: around 10 knots in the afternoons with today the NE and Tuesday and Wednesday the SE.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: the mid teens today from the NW then light WSW tomorrow and light NW on Wednesday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: the mid teens from the NE for the 3-day forecast period.
In between the central and southern Sea we have Puerto Escondido today and this morning and they should see light to moderate winds for the next 3 days. Today NE, Tomorrow SE and Wednesday light SE.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands I’m call it light and variable for the 3-day forecast period mostly less than 10 knots.
The East Cape: light to moderate winds for the 3-day forecast period. Today and tomorrow NE, Wednesday NW.
The Mexican Riviera: it looks like its back to the old pattern of light to moderate NW to the north to Cabo Corrienties and light to moderate SW to the south of the cape.

Looking down into the Sea this morning first with the 24 hour loop I can see that the Sea of Cortez has been pretty much cloud free for the past 24 hours.
Looking over at Sonora where it has been relatively calm over there as well for the past 24 hours.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera and for the first time, I think all summer, the skies are virtually clear along the coast all the way to Central America this morning.
Not much to see in our Tropical Kitchen this morning. A couple of weak wanna-be lows that have little or no chance of becoming a storm are off the west coast of the mainland. This pattern is reminiscent of the winding down of our tropical season. I’m seeing some of the SST charts (Sea Surface Temperatures) change to orange where a week ago they were red indicating some cooling of the Sea in our hood. We’ll give it a couple more weeks before we bring out the fat lady though.
In a word, I’d say our hood is “tranquil” this morning.
Looking now north to the west coast of America where the storm door is open off the Oregon and Washington coast. Several storms will move through the region today and tomorrow bringing serious wet to mostly Washington. Flooding, debris flows and rising water in the streams and rivers are concerns in the Great Northwest this weekend. As one of the storm moves east today it will be bringing heavy snow to the Rockies.
Northern California will be seeing rain starting this morning and lasting through tomorrow. Snow levels will around the passes.
In Southern California it will be warm and sunny today. A low trough will move in tomorrow and bring gusterly winds to the deserts and mountains and fog along the coast through Thursday. High pressure is progged to then rebuild for Friday and next weekend with warm and dry conditions returning.
Looking over to the southwest where this image is showing clear skies and the forecast is for temperatures to remain near seasonal readings through much of next week. A weak trough will push across the region bringing slightly cooler temperatures on Friday.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like moderate winds for the Sea, the Mexican Riviera and the outside passage for the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: low teens for the next 3 days. Today and tomorrow NE, Tuesday SE.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: is forecast to see 18-20 today and tomorrow but I’m backing off that and saying 15-18, then light NW on Tuesday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: Mid teens for the 3-day forecast period from the NE.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. In general moderate NE for the 3-day forecast period. Tuesday could see light southerlies in the San Lorenzo Channel and a bit north to Puerto Escondido.
The East Cape: moderate NW today and tomorrow and light NE on Tuesday.
The Mexican Riviera: light SW for the next 3 days.
Finally the outside passage where I can finally give a descent passage report. The entire passage in the mid teens with the exception of Pt. San Quinten today and tomorrow where they will see ballpark 20 knot winds. Tuesday at Pt. San Quinten the wind should be in the mid teens like the rest of the passage.

Sea of Cortez Weather for 09/28/13

By: Geary, 12:19 PM GMT on September 28, 2013




Saturday, September 28, 2013

Voice to Text

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that yesterday morning there was some thunderbumper activity around Mazatlan that brought some clouds into the southern crossing. That was it for any clouds in the Sea for the past 24 hours. This morning the skies are again clear for the entire Sea.
Looking south I have been watching a small cell build then break up in the Puerto Vallarta area this morning. Further south it is mostly cloudy; remnant clouds left over from earlier thunderbumpers. None of the reporting locations have reported any rain since midnight. Yesterday only Manzanillo had any significant amounts; 1.38 inches and none this morning.
The ITCZ/Monsoon trough is relatively quiet this morning.
In our Tropical Kitchen this morning, around 168 miles west of Manzanillo is a weak low, a wanna-be that will never be a gonna-be. All indications are that this low has already started to head west and will continue on this track with very little development if at all. It has moved around 30 miles further west from Manzanillo than it was yesterday morning. That’s still fairly close to the coast and until it gets a little further west it will continue to contribute to the heavy rainfall along the coast. Satellite imagery is showing the showers diminishing along the coast.
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 the first of a series of very wet storms moving across the Pacific. They will impact Washington, Oregon and Northern California over the weekend. It is packing tropical moisture from former typhoon Pabuk. Rain amounts of 10 inches are expected in some locations. Flood advisories have been posted for small streams and watches are posted on the rivers. There is also concern for mud and debris slides in burn areas. Strong winds along the coast will also be of concern to mariners. This is a relatively warm storm so snow accumulations will be light and be near the mountain passes.
In northern California the storm will bring a couple of inches of rain to the region this weekend. Major concern is for the burn areas and debris flows.
In southern California it should be a sunny weekend then a gradual cooling and a return to night and morning fog for most of next week.
Looking over to the southwest where a warming trend will occur this weekend and continue into early next week as high pressure builds over the area. The “Weather Owl” should stay dry through next Friday.
That is what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the northern Sea and the northern Sonoran coast will be seeing 20 knot winds today then moderate NW like the rest of the Sea for the next 2 days.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The Northern Sea: around 20 knots today from the NW then light to moderate NE winds for Sunday and Monday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: Guaymas will be seeing 18-22 NW today and tomorrow then mid teens on Monday from the NW.
The Baja side of the central Sea: mid teens from the NW today and Sunday then light NE on Monday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light to moderate NE for the 3-day forecast period.
The East Cape: mid teens for the 3-day forecast period. Today N, Tomorrow NW, Monday NE.
The Mexican Riviera: light to moderate SE or SW for the 3-day forecast period.

Sea of Cortez/Baja Weather for 09/27/13

By: Geary, 1:09 PM GMT on September 27, 2013



Friday, September 27, 2013

Voice to Text

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see in general the skies have been clear in the Sea for the past 24 hours. There has been some cloudiness around the cape area from remnant clouds from cells working along Mexican Riviera in the past 24 hours. Nothing over the peninsula that looks like any rain though. That being said, Los Barrales reported almost a half inch of rain since midnight.
Looking south along the Mexican Riviera this morning, as I mentioned there was, and still is, a large tall cell between Puerto Vallarta and Mazatlan that continues to grow in size this morning. Further south it is almost solid thunderbumpers from there to almost Acapulco this morning.
In our Tropical Kitchen this morning there are a couple of lows in our hood. One is embedded in the ITCZ/Monsoon trough around 92W and is forecast to continue moving west with little or no chance of any tropical development.
The other low is a rain-maker moving slowly along the west coast and was 148 miles west of Zihuatanejo this morning. The good folks at the National Hurricane Center are giving it a very slim chance of developing into a named storm: it will most likely spend it’s life as a low being tagged as invest 92E. It is forecast to start a swing to the west today and all of the models show it staying well south of the cape as it slowly moves west over the next couple of days. Meantime it’s close proximity to land is producing heavy rain in places from Puerto Vallarta south to Zihuatanejo this morning. Several reporting locations reported 2-3 inches of rain in the past 24 hours.
There are a couple of Tropical Wave that have moved off the African coast and are now heading across the Atlantic. One is around 48W and the other is approaching the Leeward Islands and is too far to the north to make it into the Pacific. I noted a low popping up in the Caribbean this morning that could attract the attention of this wave.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where a potent fall storm will set up off the British Columbia coast this weekend and bring prolonged moderate to heavy rain to southwest Washington and northern Oregon. This is a unusual storm from September and has the potential for producing record rains, up to 10 inches in the Cascades. In addition, gusterly conditions are expected to arrive tomorrow with gusts to at least 55 mph are possible along the coastal headlands and beaches.
Mostly sunny skies are forecast for northern California today and tomorrow then on Sunday an approaching trough will usher in an increase in colder weather and produce showers through Monday night and the front should exit to the east on Tuesday. High pressure will fill in the wake of the departing low bringing on a slight warming trend.
In southern California those strong westerly winds in the deserts and mountains will continue to weaken as a trough of low pressure moves east through the Great Basin today. Tomorrow high pressure will fill in the wake of the departing low bringing drying and much warmer weather for the weekend.
Looking over to the southwest this image is showing some cloudiness mostly in the NW corner of the state but the forecast is for party cloudy skies with a few light showers today in the Tucson area. I did note that the “Weather Owl” was wet this morning with just a trace of rain at Hereford.
As the low in the Great Basin moves off to the east high pressure will fill in bringing a warming trend to the southwest over the weekend.
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 be seeing strong NW winds all day today. Tomorrow moderate and Sunday light.
The rest of the Sea mostly in the moderate ranges for the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: Strong to 26 today, 18 tomorrow, and light on Sunday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: Sunday around 20, but today and tomorrow moderate NW.
The Baja side of the central Sea: mostly moderate NE for the next 3 days.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light to moderate for the 3-day forecast period.
The East Cape: moderate NW today then light NE over the weekend.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan to Puerto Vallarta mostly light SE for the next 3 days. South of Cabo Corrienties we have invest 92E that is producing a lot of rain along the coast with the potential for strong gusts as these cells move though. The forecast however says moderate NW for the next 3 days.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see the Sea has had another 24 hours of pretty much cloudless skies.
Looking south along the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see there has been a solid wall of thunderbumpers along the coast for two days now. I can see a nice size cell developing around Puerto Vallarta this morning. These storms as well as the tropical storms in the past weeks have dumped a lot of rain along the coast causing a lot of flood damage and lose of life. The wanna-be low now just west of Zihuatanejo this morning will be adding more rain to the region.
Might as well bring up our Tropical Kitchen now. That low (invest 92) was about 375 miles west of the Gulf of Tehuantepec last night and this morning it is just west of Zihuatanejo moving at around 12 mph. The models are showing a familiar pattern reminiscent of Himicane Manual last week with some of the early computer tracks showing the system moving off to the west, some moving inland and a few showing the system moving into the Sea of Cortez.
Earlier forecasts had this system as a “gonna-be” over the weekend, now they are not quite sure. The one thing that will happen, with the close proximity to land, is it will produce rain, probably heavy at times, along the west coast of Mexico as it slowly moves north over the next couple of days. The coast is already saturated with rain from Manuel and more rain has the potential for bringing additional flooding and mud slides.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the winter storm door is open in the Great Northwest. A series of fronts will move through the region bringing wet into the region into early next week.
In Northern California they say a miracle happened in San Francisco bay yesterday with team USA coming from 8 points behind to win the American’s cup.
Weather-wise the delightful weather in northern California will come to an end this weekend with a big honk’n low moving in from the Pacific. By late Sunday night rain will spread into northern California into Monday. The storm should exit to the east on Monday evening then next week the forecast is for seasonal cool and dry.
In southern California they could see a few light showers this morning and gusterly and cool conditions today. Tomorrow high pressure is progged to start to rebuild bringing drying and much warmer weather through the weekend.
Looking over to the southwest where that low moving through the Great Basin will result in gusterly condition across most of southwest Arizona today. In addition to the winds there will be enough moisture for a slight chance of some showers this afternoon and evening mainly over the White Mountains and the higher elevations. Tomorrow the “Weather Owl” at 5000 feet says with high pressure rebuilding the southwest should see warmer temperatures over the weekend into early next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the northern and southern Seas will be gusterly today while the central Sea remains in the moderate ranges.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: strong to 20 today from the SW. Tomorrow swinging to the NW at 20 then moderate NW of Saturday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: I would have expected to see light SW today but the models are showing light NW today. Tomorrow moderate NW and Saturday light NW.
The Baja side of the central Sea: light SW today then light to moderate NE wind for Friday and Saturday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Strong winds to 20 today from the SW. Tomorrow light NW and Saturday light NE.
The East Cape: moderate NW today, Light NW tomorrow and Light NE on Saturday.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan will see light NW over the 3-day forecast period. To the south we have a “wanna-be” low paralleling the coast and is now west of Zihuatanejo. As long as it’s a “wanna-be” the winds will be in the light to moderate ranges from mainly SE along the coast. The jury is still out on whether it will be a “gonna-be”.

Voice to Text

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea has been cloudless for the past 24 hours. The water vapor imagery is showing the Sea of Cortez region to be very dry.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see a small cell working just off shore from Mazatlan, and another just south of Cabo Corrienties. Then from Manzanillo south to Guatemala it is one solid thunderbumper extending perhaps 100 miles out to Sea to the west and blanketing the Tehuantepec isthmus to the east.
Looking at the ITCZ/Monsoon trough this morning I can see there is very little activity in the zone this morning.
Looking in our Tropical Kitchen this morning I can see the low that was forecast to pop up off the coast of southwestern Mexico did last night and it looks like I will elevate it from a “wanna-be” to a “gonna-be”. They say the development will be slow and not expected to become a tropical storm until late in the week and over the weekend. In the mean time it will be producing more, possibly heavy, rain along the west coast that is already soaked. Concern is again for flash flooding and mud slides.
There are a couple of Tropical Waves moving across the Atlantic today. It’s possible they won’t make it to the Pacific, with the Atlantic being in high season for hurricanes. Currently this lonely low is the only item of tropical interest in both the Pacific and the Atlantic.
That’s what is gong on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image I can see there will be a couple of lows moving through the Great Northwest this week. Seattle is expected to see scattered morning showers give way to partly sunny skies this afternoon then a wet pattern will prevail through early next week.
In northern California Team USA tied it up for the America’s cup Race yesterday. Both teams now having eight points with nine to win. It should be a perfect day for racing in San Francisco bay with sunny skies and NW winds at 15-25.
A trough currently off the coast of British Columbia is forecast to dig south across northern and central California later today and this evening. This will bring a warmer air mass into northern California along with lower humidity readings. Fire watches had been posted for elevations over 1000 feet in the bay area.
The trough will move quickly off to the east tomorrow with high pressure rebuilding over northern California by Friday.
In southern California that trough will bring much cooler weather and strong westerly winds to the mountains and deserts tomorrow along with patchy drizzle west of the mountains. High pressure should return by the weekend bringing warmer and drier weather.
Looking over to the southwest and Hoot Owl Hollow. The Weather Owl at 5000 feet is saying it will be windy today and especially gusterly tomorrow. They also have enough moisture to trigger isolated showers mainly over the eastern mountains tomorrow night and Friday. High pressure will build over the west this weekend bring a warming trend into the first week of October.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on his side of the Fence we should have pleasant moderate winds in most locations today. In the far northern Sea a bit gusterly today, tomorrow a bit more. The rest of the Sea mostly in the moderate ranges.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: moderate SW today. Strong to 20 from the SW tomorrow and moderate NW of Friday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: light NW Today, light SW tomorrow and moderate NW on Friday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: moderate NE today and Friday, tomorrow light NW.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Moderate SW today and tomorrow and then light NW or NE on Friday. La Paz right now looks like strong to 25 SW winds for tomorrow.
The East Cape: light to moderate NW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan light NW for the next 3 days. Puerto Vallarta mostly light SW, south of Cabo Corrienties mostly light southerlies.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that we have had another 24 hours with cloudless skies over the Sea of Cortez.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see a few squalls off shore and the remnants of earlier thumpers along the coast, so in general it’s just mostly cloudy until you get to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where there is a big honk’n thunderbumper sitting on top of the Gulf this morning.
Not a lot going on out in the Eastern Pacific basin or along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough this morning just a few a few isolated showers and thunderbumper along 8N this morning.
There is still nothing going on in our Tropical Kitchen this morning. There are a couple of wanna-be lows down south. One is around 101W and close to ITCZ/Monsoon trough. Global models are indicating this low to have the best chance of future development and they are giving it a low chance at that. The region is actually pretty dry right now.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where a couple of wet lows will be bringing rain to Washington, Oregon, extreme northern California and northern Nevada today.
The Great Northwest should see some sunshine but mostly rain for the rest of the week.
The weather will stay to the north of California except for right along the Oregon border. So it looks like fine weather for the America Cup races in San Francisco today as the Kiwi’s try for one more win to take the cup home.
No rain is in the forecast for northern California. A ridge of high pressure will build back into the north state for the end of the week through the first half of next week. So a bit warmer along with sunny skies for the next week.
In southern California a cooling trend will begin today as offshore flow returns with low clouds and fog along the coast through tomorrow morning. A low will move through the southland tomorrow morning and that will bring much colder weather and strong west winds to the mountains and deserts tomorrow and Thursday. Friday will bring back high pressure and warmer temperatures and drier weather throughout the weekend.
Over in the southwest high pressure will bring on a warming trend today then a trough moving out of California will bring gusterly winds Wednesday followed by cooler temperatures on Thursday and Friday.
So with not much going on there I tried Google Earth to find the giant Owl in Hoot Owl Hollow and Hoot Owl Hollow did not show up on Google Earth. It did show streets like Critter & Muffin lanes off of Ash Canyon Rd. though. Looks pretty rural there!
Anyway that’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the winds (in general) for the Sea will continue to be in the moderate ranges for the 3-day forecast period. The northern Sea could be a bit lumpy tomorrow and Thursday though.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light NE today, tomorrow and Thursday 18-20 from the SW.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: brisk today in the 15-18 knot ranges. Light winds from the SW tomorrow and Thursday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 14-16 today from the NE. 11-14E tomorrow and light winds from the SW on Thursday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light NE or NW today, Moderate SW tomorrow and Thursday.
The East Cape: light to moderate NW for the 3-day forecast period.
The Mexican Riviera: Mostly light SW for the next 3 days.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see the Sea again has had no clouds in the skies for the past 24 hours.
Looking south along the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see a cell started developing in the Puerto Vallarta area around 4am this morning and has been getting bigger ever since. By 5am it has expanded to just south of Mazatlan. By 7am it was still spread out from Puerto Vallarta to Mazatlan but not getting any bigger.
Further south just a few small thunderbumpers along the coast and scattered remnant clouds left over from earlier thumpers. From the Tehuantepec south there is considerable thunderbumper activity all the way to South American.
I noted that around the Puerto Vallarta area several reporting stations reported almost 3 inches of rain in the past 24 hours. With over two inches since midnight in one location.
There is nothing cooking in our Tropical Kitchen this morning. There are three Tropical Waves out in the Atlantic that could make it all the way over here. There is currently nothing tropical working in the Atlantic that might attract a wave.
The weather prognosticators at the National Hurricane Center are forecasting a low developing within the ITCZ/Monsoon trough between 120 and 123W today then moving north through Wednesday. This could be a wanna-be. They are also keen on the existence of a low in the general vicinity of south of southeastern Mexico. So with our tropical season starting to wind down we will probably still see a couple more storms this season.
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 a low parked on the Northern California and Oregon border. It will continue to bring rain to the Great Northwest and extreme northern California though Wednesday.
The rest of northern California will remain dry throughout the week with high pressure building around Thursday.
In southern California building high pressure will bring warmer weather through tomorrow. A cold front in the Great Basin on Wednesday will give cause to cooler weather along the coast with possible drizzle along with gusterly winds in the deserts and mountains. Warmer and dry to wrap up the week as the trough moves east and high pressure rebuilds.
Looking now over to the southwest where this image is showing no clouds over the state at all this morning. The forecast is for much cooler earlier morning temperatures and a bit cooler to start the week but it should warm up by mid week. Toward the end of the week another low is progged to move through the region bringing the cooler temperatures back along with gusterly winds.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like our moderate winds will be with us over the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light NW today, light E tomorrow and around 19 knots on Wednesday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: moderate NW today and tomorrow and then light southerlies on Wednesday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: moderate NE for the 3-day forecast period.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light southerlies today, light NE or NW tomorrow and then light SW on Wednesday.
The East Cape: light SE today, moderate NW tomorrow and light NE on Wednesday.
The Mexican Riviera: it looks like mostly light to moderate SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
I noted this morning that most of the reporting stations were reporting cooler daytime highs, down a few degrees. Also this time of year our humidity starts becoming a bit more comfortable.

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.
Looking south along the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see there is considerable thunderbumper activity between Manzanillo and Zihuatanejo this morning and like yesterday morning a moisture plume starts there and extends east across Mexico, the Gulf of Mexico, the southern United States then curls north along the eastern seaboard and ends up around Nova Scotia this morning. I though this might be piloted by a jet stream but the 300 mb model I look at in the winter months to track the Pineapple Express did not show a jet stream in the vicinity. Hummm?
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific basin and the ITCZ/Monsoon trough I can see there is not a lot of activity out there this morning, just a few isolated thunderbumpers.
There is nothing cooking in our Tropical Kitchen this morning and no indication of anything tropical popping up in the next couple of days. There are two Tropical Waves well out in the Atlantic and this time of year they may find something interesting in the Caribbean to hook up with. We’ll have to wait and 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 the Great Northwest will have a rather vigorous cold front arrive today bringing winds to 35 and about a half inch of rain to the region.
In northern California that cold front that came through yesterday causing a 2 hour rain delay in the Oakland As game yesterday afternoon has exited to the east leaving much cooler air and sunny skies for today. (in case you wanted to know, the Oakland As will probably cinch the pendent for the American League West today.) Go A’s!
I digress.
In southern California cloudy skies this morning and a low will swing through the southland tonight triggering gusterly winds in the deserts and mountains. Along the coast drizzle or light rain is possible tonight followed by much colder weather into late next week.
Looking now over to the southwest where the trough along the west coast coupled with a bit of moisture over the area will be enough to generate a few showers and thunderbumpers across the southwest today. I could be a bit gusterly today. In the wake of the low drier air will fill in and knock temperatures back to near normal for the 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 the Sonoran coast will be seeing light to moderate SW winds and the Baja side light to moderate NE winds over the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light to moderate NE today and tomorrow then light SE on Tuesday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: light NW today then mid teens from the NW on the next two days.
The Baja side of the central Sea: mid teens from the NE for the 3-day forecast period.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light to moderate SW winds for the next 3 days.
The East Cape: light SE today, light northerlies tomorrow and moderate northerlies on Tuesday.
The Mexican Riviera: Cabo Corrienties north light SW. South of the cape light SE for the next three days.
Temperature-wise most locations in the Sea are still seeing temperatures in the mid to high 90s. The average temperature for September here in the cove is 93, which is what we are averaging right now. October averages five degrees cooler at 88, so we should start to see the temperatures dip a bit. The Temperature in the pool will also be dropping.
We have about month left of predominately southerly winds before that thermal low over Yuma breaks down and our northerlies start.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that again this morning the Sea is cloud free.
Looking south along the Mexican Riviera north of Cabo Corrienties the skies are clear but between Manzanillo and Zihuatanejo there is an interesting phenomenon. Starting onshore several very strong cells are linked together and stretch all the way east across Mexico directly into the path of Invest 96 which is paralleling Mexico eastern seaboard. The plume does not stop there but continues up through Texas the eastern United States and into Quebec, much in the manner of our winter Jet stream. We have had some strange weather lately, but to have a line of thunderbumpers stretch almost 5000 miles is absolutely amazing.
South of Zihuatanejo there are a few small cells working along the coast to Central America this morning.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific basin and the ITCZ/Monsoon trough I can see very little activity out there this morning. Just a few isolated thumpers here and there.
Looking in our Tropical Kitchen this morning. The fat lady finally sang Adios to Manuel yesterday. This morning there is nothing cooking in our Tropical Kitchen this morning and the weekend looks about the same.
That’s what is happening in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where I can see two large lows in the north Pacific this morning. One is just moving out of the Gulf of Alaska and the other is just making a move on the Washington coast this morning.
This is pretty much the first winter storm of the season for the west coast on this first day of autumn. Washington will be seeing gusterly winds fairly heavy rain and snow in the Cascades to around 5500 feet. This first system will be a fast mover and following it will be that honker that is now just moving out of the Gulf of Alaska. It will arrive tomorrow and bring more wintery weather to the Great Northwest through Tuesday.
Rain will start to arrive in northern and central California late today and early on Sunday and exiting to the east late Sunday. This will not be a particular wet storm. Ushering in cold will be the main feature. Temperatures will dip as much as 20 degrees as this front passes though. Following the passage northern California should see dry seasonal weather with 60s along the coast and some 80s in the far interior. Overnight lows will be chilly again with 30s and 40s in the interior favored cool spots.
In southern California the first day of autumn will bring cooler fall like weather to the southland. Gusterly winds in the deserts and mountains. Next week will be a week of warm one day and cool the next as several fronts move through.
Looking now over to the southwest where an upper level trough along the west coast coupled with a bit of moisture over the area will be enough to generate a few thunderbumpers across the southwest this weekend. The westerly flow behind this trough will start to push drier air across the area later Sunday and knock temperatures back to near of below average for 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 seeing mostly light to moderate winds in the mid teens for the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light southerlies today. Light NE Sunday and Monday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: The Sonoran coast should see light to moderate SW winds today, then light to moderate WNW on Sunday and Monday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: mostly moderate east of NE for the next 3 days. Puerto Escondido is still forecasting moderate SE winds for the 3-day forecast period.
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 winds for the next 3 days. Today NW, tomorrow SE and Monday NE.
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 first with the 24 hour loop, I can see Hurricane Manuel make landfall just north of Topalabombo and then move inland during the day and slowly disintegrate to a post tropical low by around dark last night. As far as hurricanes go Manuel was very small in size and did not blanket a large area.
With the exception of the southern Sonoran coast where Manuel wnet ashore the rest of the Sea has been pretty much clear for the past 24 hours. The Ascat ascending satellite pass missed the Sea and the descending pass just showed some light winds from the southern crossing to Cabo Corrienties this morning. I did have some waves here in the cove early this morning and continuing until now, so someplace nearby there had to have been some winds.
Looking now south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see lots of cloudiness along the coast along with a few thunderbumpers working close to shore.
Not a lot of activity along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough this morning.
Looking now in our Tropical Kitchen Well, when the fat lady finally sings her swan song for Manuel, it will be a very sad song. Manuel has been an incredibly destructive storm. This was the first time since 1958 that two tropical storms or hurricanes hit both of Mexico’s coasts at the same time. The combined one-two punch of Manuel on Mexico's Pacific coast and Hurricane Ingrid on the Atlantic coast this week have caused flooding blamed for at least 80 deaths. Another 58 people are missing and probably dead in a landslide that hit La Pintada, a bit north of Acapulco. I saw a picture of two feet of water running down the streets of Acapulco. There were reports of 7 to 14 inches on rain in many locations during the past week.
Manuel is now well inland and has degenerated into a broad area of low pressure over the Sierra Madre Occidentals. Heavy rainfall will continue for the next couple of days with continuing threats of flooding and land slides.
With such a large death toll, it is possible that the name Manuel will be retired from the list of active Eastern Pacific hurricanes; Mexico does not do this very often, only three other Pacific storms that hit Mexico have had their names retired.
It’s not over for the east coast of Mexico either this week. Another low has developing in the bay of Campeche. This is the same area that Hurricane Ingrid started. Although it is not being given much of chance of becoming another hurricane it will continue to produce locally heavy rains along the coast as it slowly moves north along Mexico’s eastern seaboard over the next couple of days.
Back on our hood, a blogger in La Paz is forecasting two more hurricanes in our hood this month. Yipeee! Well, tiz the season, we would expect no less. We have had 13 named storms so far this season, and 15 is about average, so we are right on schedule.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where a cold front will begin to move over the Pacific Northwest today, bringing showers and thunderstorms to western Washington, Oregon, and northern California. Temperatures will drop 5 to 10 degrees as this cold front moves through the Pacific Northwest.
In northern California the advancing cold front will bring rain to the Bay Area today and the Sacramento Valley tomorrow. It does not look like the foothills will receive any rain though. Following the passage on Saturday night and Sunday high pressure will bring clear skies and cold temperatures with wide spread readings of 40s in the Bay Area by Sunday morning.
In southern California a low pressure trough developing over the Eastern Pacific will bring the first taste of autumn weather to the southland over the weekend as it swings through. They will probably see some patchy drizzle along the coast and gusterly winds over the mountains and deserts. Daytime highs will dip some 5-10 degrees below normal.
Looking now over to the southwest where it will be mostly dry however there is a low moving through the Great Basin through tomorrow that will bring a slight chance of some thunderbumper activity in the higher terrain. Slightly cooler temperatures are expected Sunday into early next week.
That’s what is gong on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like light southerlies along the Sonoran northern and central coast for the next couple of days then light NE on Sunday. Same for the far northern Sea. In general the rest of the Sea moderate NE for the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light winds over the weekend. Today SE, Tomorrow SE and Sunday NE.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: light for the 3-day forecast period with a western flavor.
The Baja side of the central Sea: Moderate NE for the 3-day forecast period. The exception Puerto Escondido which is forecast to have light SE over 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 NW for the next 3 days.
The Mexican Riviera: pretty much light to moderate SW for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that with the exception of a himicane in the Sea of Cortez the skies are clear to the north of this swirl in the south.
This image is showing this storm, then a tropical storm, moving into the center of the mouth of the Sea of Cortez yesterday morning. Flipping a coin and going right. The forecasts of course said he would go left and pass over La Paz.
I believe I said this a couple of days ago, “What an interesting storm”. It has gone from a low to a Tropical Depression twice, a tropical storm twice and is now a category one himicane with the eyewall around 60 miles north of Los Mochas over land with half the storm still over water along the Sonoran coast. This storm has dumped a lot of very heavy rain along the west coast of Mexico flooding coastal several cities. Around 60 deaths are now attributed to this storm. A friend living just north of Mazatlan reported she had 8 inches of rain in less than 12 hours yesterday. I noted that yesterday all the forecasters were ending the forecast with things like, “needless to say, confidence remains quite low in the track forecasts”. These are folks with PhD’s and a house full of gazillion dollars computers. It was amazing the tracks were changing by the hour. The current popular track this morning has Manuel to continuing moving inland again today. We’ll see? An alternate scenario is for Manuel to linger along the Sonoran coast in the southern Sea for a couple of days. Who knows?
The fat lady has warmed up twice but has had to sit down twice as Manuel has fooled all the computers scenarios and sort of danced to its own tune. I’m thinking we’ll call her when we need her.
As Manuel has been producing heavy rain and mud slides on the west coast of Mexico Sister Ingrid was doing the same thing on the eastern seaboard. Now another low has popped up in the Bay of Campeche and is forecast to pretty much follow the same track as Ingrid up the Mexican coast dumping more rain, more flash flooding and more mud slides.
This will be like a triple hit for Mexico in the past 6 days. I feel like saying, “Hey enough is enough.” The Mexicans are probably saying, “Que sera”.
Well that is what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the Great Northwest will see a day of warm temperatures and sunshine. Tomorrow the rain will return into the weekend.
In northern California the jet stream is keeping most of the storm activity to the north however they could see some sprinkles tomorrow but the weekend looks like clear and warm.
In southern California weak high pressure will keep the southland warm and dry into the weekend.
Looking now over to the southwest where the forecast is suggesting some thunderbumper activity along the Fence this afternoon and evening and possibly some thunderbumper activity over near the California border on Saturday. This image however is showing the region to be pretty much free of any clouds this morning.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it sort of depends on where you are. You could have NE, NW or SW.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: ballpark 10 knots for the 3-day forecast period. Today from the NE. tomorrow SE, and Saturday SW.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: moderate NW today, light SW tomorrow and light westerly’s on Saturday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: Santa Rosalia to Concepcion Bay moderate NE for the 3-day forecast period.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands including the Puerto Escondido area. Light to moderate SW winds for the next 3 days.
The East Cape: light SE today, light NW tomorrow and Saturday.
The Mexican Riviera: in the Mazatlan area moderate SE today and tomorrow and light SW on Saturday. Puerto Vallarta and south light to moderate mostly SW winds for the next 3 days.
And the Sonoran coast from Los Mochas south to around half way between Mazatlan and Guaymas, say 80 miles on either side of Los Mochas hurricane warning are posted.

Voice to Text

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea is again pretty much clear north of the La Paz latitudes. To the south of this line we have our old friend Manuel.
It looks like Manuel was a bit dry after dumping a lot of rain along the west coast. It emerged thirsty yesterday morning and soon became invest 91. A big honk’n cell moved out from Puerto Vallarta to give it a little drink yesterday morning (a little tropical filling station). That done that cell moved northeast and dissipated late in the afternoon. The invigorated invest was elevated up to Tropical Depression status again and could reach tropical storm status later today.
Right now Manuel is parked around 50 miles SE of the cape bringing what looks like just light rain to the cape and abundant rain to the area from Los Mochas to Puerto Vallarta this morning. The current track, and don’t chisel this in stone as they have been changing on a hourly basis, is for Manual to move slowly NNW today and cross over La Paz tomorrow afternoon as a Tropical Depression and exit on the Pacific side and perhaps finally perhaps disappear in the cooler waters there.
At this time there is nothing else cooking in our Tropical Kitchen.
The ITCZ/Monsoon trough is not quite as active as it has been for the past several days.
The skies are pretty much clear from Cabo Corrienties south to the Tehuantepec this morning where there is a big honk’n thunderbumper right over the bay this morning.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where a cold front has moved into the Great Northwest and will be bringing rain to the region into the weekend.
In northern California the rain will start on Friday and temperatures will dip considerably over the weekend.
In southern California no rain is expected but cooler temperatures will prevail into the weekend.
Looking over to the southwest where dry conditions will prevail through this weekend except for a few mainly mountain showers and thunderbumpers during the afternoon and evening hours. Daytime temperatures will generally be a few degrees above normal into the weekend.
That is what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the winds in the Sea, with the exemption of the cape region will have similar conditions today and Friday and a slight change in direction tomorrow.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light southerlies today and Friday. Light NE tomorrow.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: light to moderate SE today and Friday and light to moderate westerly’s tomorrow.
The Baja side of the central Sea: upper teens today and Friday from the SE and tomorrow low teens from the NE.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Manuel will be crossing the peninsula to the south so it will be mostly cloudy with moderate southerlies today and tomorrow and brisk NW on Friday to around 18 knots.
La Paz: it looks like around 25 knots for the 3-day forecast period probably from the NE.
The East Cape: the models are showing the strongest winds today an in the 30-35 knot ranges and light winds tomorrow and Friday. I’d expect the winds to be a bit stronger tomorrow as Manuel is expected to pass over La Paz tomorrow afternoon.
For the Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan around 30+ today and north to around Topalabombo and los Mochas about the same today.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea has been virtually cloud free for the past 24 hours.
Looking south I can see that a very large cell developed back in the mountains to the east of Puerto Vallarta last night and by this morning it had grown to a huge size and strength and it appears to have merged with Invest 91, formally tropical storm Manuel which is parked around the Tres Marias Islands west of Puerto Vallarta. It now extends from Puerto Vallarta to almost Los Mochas blanketing about half of the southern crossing. The outer clouds extending north to La Paz on the peninsula. It’s hard to tell any forward or northern movement because it just keeps growing. This is a storm that will bear watching develop today.
Looking in our Tropical Kitchen this morning. Yesterday I said, “The fat lady ain’t sung yet.” I’m sticking to that even though Manuel is officially history, it has emerged from land in is now in the vicinity of the Tres Marias islands west of Puerto Vallarta as invest 91Echo. This morning the low seems to be loosing definition and will most likely merge with the trough that has been in the Sea all summer. The National Hurricane Center is giving it only a slight chance of redevelopment to a tropical storm again.
Yesterday The Florida Water District published models showing this system moving directly up the Sea of Cortez. The only model they did not show was the official one from the National Hurricane Center’s charts that showed a few of the tracks entering the Sea and most skirting over or to the west of the cape in the next couple of days.
The fly in the ointment this morning may be this huge cell that the invest appears to have merged with. It will certainly bear watching today. My crystal ball is really foggy about what will develop, perhaps nothing. It’s like Godzilla meets Bubby, you sort of expect something to happen.
Further south it is thunderbumper city all the way to Central America 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 see off and on showers all week then a Pacific storm will arrive on Friday bringing another round of wet and unsettled weather to the northwest.
In Northern California the work week looks very pleasant however that Pacific storm may not bring rain but it will be bringing in the cold this weekend. The pattern for next week looks dry with the jet stream keeping the storms to the north.
In southern California areas of dense fog are probable all along the coast lifting in the late afternoons. The next couple of days will be gusterly in the mountain and deserts.
Looking now over to the southwest where the can expect to have a few thunderbumpers along the Fence this afternoon and evening. Thereafter a drying trend will limit the thunderbumpers too mainly across the White Mountains into Sunday. Temperatures will generally be a few degrees above normal into the weekend.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence where in general it looks like light southerlies for the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light southerlies today and tomorrow and light NE on Thursday.
The central Sea: light to moderate SE for the next 3 days.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. The mid teens from the SE for the 3-day forecast period.
The East Cape: light to moderate SE for the next 3 days.
The Mexican Riviera: Cabo Corrienties to Mazatlan 21-25 today from the SE. then light to moderate SW for the next two days.
South of Cabo Corrienties light SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.

Voice to Text

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez have been pretty much cloud free for the past 24 hours. Well, I can see a few fluffys hear and there in the southern Sea this morning but that is it.
Looking over to Sonora; the 24 hour loop is showing not a cloud in the sky for the entire state.
Looking now south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera. We have the remnants of tropical storm Manuel parked over Cabo Corrienties this morning and from there south heavy cloud cover and thunderbumpers are all along the coast to South America.
What an interesting storm Manuel has been. From a lowly low just three days ago to a tropical storm in 9 hours then dumping copious amounts of rain along the coast from Acapulco to Cabo Corrienties . Making landfall yesterday and heading north inland, paralleling the coast and exiting early this morning on the north side of Cabo Corrienties as a remnant low where he is forecast to park for few days.
Even though Manuel has dissipated very heavy rains are expected to continue along the southwestern coast of Mexico for another day or
so. These rains could cause life-threatening flash flooding and mud slides especially in mountainous terrain. Manuel remains to be a dangerous storm.
The fat lady may not have sung yet. Model guidance continues to suggest that a weak surface low could form in this area just to the north of Cabo Corrienties in a few days so we will be keeping a weather eye on Manuel’s remnants for signs of regeneration.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where a front moving through Washington will keep showers in the forecast for Seattle into mid week.
In northern California where autumn is arriving in the bay area. After a summer of foggy days on the bay they are looking forward to the sunny days that autumn brings. Inland is also shaping up to be very pleasant all week.
In southern California coastal communities will see morning fog lift at the beaches in the early afternoons. Inland; warm temperatures on tap for all week.
Looking now over to the southwest where there still remains enough moisture in the region to justify isolated to scattered showers and thunderbumpers mainly to the east and south of Tucson this afternoon and evening. There is also a slight chance of some thunderbumper activity late tonight across the White Mountains, otherwise dry conditions will occur.
Tuesday and Wednesday there could be some thunderbumper activity along the Fence in the afternoons and evenings.
Briefly taking a look over in the Caribbean where Hurricane Ingrid has just been plutoed to a tropical storm as it made landfall around La Pesca. She is forecast to move west across Mexico today producing 10-15 inches of rain over a large part of eastern Mexico with isolated amounts of 25 inches possible especially in the mountains terrain. Flash flooding and mud slides are already being reported and there have been reports of about a dozen deaths so far. She should extend almost ¾ the way across Mexico by Wednesday.
That is what is happening to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like this could be the last day for these NW winds. Tomorrow swinging to the east then southerlies on Wednesday.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: moderate NW today then light SE for the rest of the 3-day forecast period.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: the mid to high teens from the NW today then light southerlies on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: moderate NE today, light southerlies tomorrow and moderate southerlies on Wednesday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, the nearby islands. Light SE for the 3-day forecast period. La Paz light SE today and tomorrow and then on Wednesday moderate SE.
The East Cape: ballpark 20 knots in the afternoons for the next 3 days. Today WNW, Tomorrow ESE, and Wednesday WNW again.
The Mexican Riviera: The remnant clouds associated with former tropical storm Manuel are spread out from around Manzanillo to Los Mochas this morning. Cabo Corrienties is forecast to have ballpark 20 knot winds today but the rest mostly in the low to mid teens. To the south of Cabo Corrienties it is pretty much sold thunderbumpers all the way to South America this morning.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea has had another day of pretty much cloudless skies.
Nothing has been going on over in Sonora for the past 24 hours either. All the weather action is along the eastern coast of Mexico.
Looking south this image is showing Mazatlan having clear skies and cloudy over Puerto Vallarta but south it is heavy rain.
We might as well get right to it. In out Tropical Kitchen this morning Brother Manuel is likely to make landfall in the next couple of hours and the opportunity for him to become a himicane is quickly dwindling even though his winds are currently around 70 mph. Nevertheless hurricane warnings will remain in effect from Lazaro Cardenas to Manzanillo until it is certain that the center has reached land.
This in conjunction with Hurricane Ingrid in the Caribbean will be producing very heavy rain for Mexico even after Manuel reaches land and is plutoed to a depression. This will become a very serious storm for Mexico. There will be flash flooding (with rain accumulations of up to two feet) especially when Ingrid slams into the Sierra Madre Occidentals.
Traditionally mud slides will also be the cause of loss of life in those areas hardest hit by either storm. This is one of those, “You can run, but can not hide” storms.
Manuel is currently packing 50-70 knot winds and it looks like it will make landfall between Lazaro Cardenas and Manzanillo later this morning. At 3am (MDT) this morning it was only 40 miles west of Lazaro Cárdenas.
There is no good news about this storm, except that it should not have any effect in the Baja peninsula and the Sea of Cortez.
The el Burro Chamber of Commerce has rated this storm as “Butt Ugly”.
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 a low moving into the Great Northwest, actually this is the first of several lows that will be bringing rain to the Great Northwest and extreme Northern California this week.
In southern California high pressure over the region will keep dense fog along the coast and warm temperatures in the inland empire. High pressure will give way to a broad low developing across the west tomorrow. This trough will bring a slow cooling, followed by a more substantial cooling as another trough moves through later in the week.
Over in the southwest there is just enough moisture around for isolated thunderbumpers east of Tucson though tomorrow then dry conditions are on tap for the rest of the work week with Temperatures inching up a few degrees. This image is showing the only moisture yesterday coming from Utah not from across the Fence as it has all summer.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the Sonoran coast will have today’s strongest winds and they will be from the NW. The rest of the Sea is forecast to have NW winds but more in the moderate ranges.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The Northern Sea along the Sonoran coast: ballpark 20-25NW.
The Baja side of the northern Sea: Moderate NW today and tomorrow and light SE on Tuesday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: around 25 today from the NW then light SE Monday and Tuesday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 17-21 today from the NW, Tomorrow light NE then light to moderate SE on Tuesday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light NE today then light SE Monday and Tuesday.
The East Cape: strong to 24 today from the NW, strong tomorrow around 19 from the SE then moderate westerlies on Tuesday.
The West coast of Mexican from Cabo Corrienties north light southerlies. South of Cabo Corrienties all bets are off. A strong tropical storm is getting ready to hammer the coast around Lazaro Cardenas and even when it weakens it will still be packing a lot of rain.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that after the clouds cleared over the cape region yesterday morning the skies have been pretty much clear for the entire Sea for the past 24 hours.
Over in Sonora there were a few cells develop and then quickly dissipate yesterday afternoon but that was it for the state.
Any tropical moisture in the area is being transported through Chihuahua into New Mexico.
Looking south to the cape this morning I can see some fluffys in the region but none look like rain producers. I’d imagine they will burn off with the sun early this morning.
Looking now over to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera this morning where north of Cabo Corrienties it remains clear this morning, looking south we are into our Tropical Kitchen.
What an amazing storm: It went from an invest to a Tropical Depression then to tropical storm Manuel in about 9 hours. It is now our 13th named storm of the season and is pretty much stationary this morning around 147 miles SW of Zihuatanejo.
This storm dynamics are working in conjunction with tropical storm Ingrid in the bay of Campeche. They will be producing torrential rains and life-threatening flooding and mud slides over a large portion of eastern and central Mexico over the next couple of days as they both move slowly to the north. I would expect that Manuel will reach hurricane status before reaching landfall around Manzanillo on Sunday. Interests along the coast from western Oaxaca through Guerrero can expect the combined marine hazards of rough seas and dangerous rip currents along with gale force winds as the storm gets closer to land. Inland rain amounts of 10-15 inches with 24 inches possible in the mountainous regions. This could turn out to be a very ugly storm.
Anyway that is what is happening in our hood this morning. Looking now north to the west coast of America where autumn is trying to happen. A low off the northern coast is going to bring the possibility of showers to extreme northern California to Washington this weekend.
Most of northern California will cool a bit due to the low to the north but no rain is in their forecast.
In southern California weak high pressure will build over the region through tomorrow resulting in dense fog along the coast and warm days inland. The high will give way to a broad low developing across the west on Monday. This trough will bring slow cooling to the southland.
Looking now over to the southwest where disturbances to the north will allow some moisture to remain through this weekend resulting in mainly isolated showers and thunderbumper to the east to Tucson. Dryer air is expected to move back into the region early next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like this weekend the northern and central Sea will be seeing brisk to strong NW winds.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: mid to high teens from the NW for the weekend. Monday NW in the low teens.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: NW 20-22 over the weekend. Light W on Monday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 12-15 NW today. 16-20 tomorrow a light NE on Monday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light to moderate NE for the 3-day forecast period.
The East Cape: around 20 today from the NW, tomorrow light NE, and Monday very light SE.
The Mexican Riviera: north of Cabo Corrienties moderate mostly NW. south of Cabo Corrienties Brother Manuel will be bringing strong winds and lots to rain to the west coast from Acapulco to Manzanillo over the weekend. Monday Manuel should be over land and probably a Tropical Depression again. We’ll see?

LUCKY FRIDAY THE 13TH

Voice to Text

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that with the exception of the cape region the Sea of Cortez has been cloud free for the past 24 hours.
Over in Sonora back in the hills between Mazatlan and Los Mochas just about every day this time of year thunderbumpers develop there and move toward the coast. Sometimes, like this morning, they break-up before entering the Sea and send mostly remnant clouds toward the cape with just enough moisture to give cause to the possibility of some thunderbumper activity in the cape region.
When they continue to build as they get to open water we call them chubbascos and they are normally associated with high winds, not necessarily any rain though.
Well, it took all that to tell you that it is cloudy in the cape region this morning. Yesterday afternoon Accuweather said La Paz had fog. Not sure what that was all about. The web cam showed lots of sun and little wind on the bay.
Looking now south along the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera it looks like just remnant clouds from long-gone thunderbumpers from Mazatlan to Manzanillo, then its sold thunderbumpers all the way to Central America.
The ITCZ/Monsoon trough snaking along 11 north this morning is very active out to around 120.
Looking in our Tropical Kitchen this morning we have invest 90 Echo. It is around 109 miles SW of Acapulco this morning and the good folks at the National Hurricane Center are giving it a much better chance of development to a Tropical Depression than they did yesterday. It could very likely become a Tropical Depression over the weekend and perhaps a named storm early next week. This system is very close to shore and in combination with Tropical Depression 10 passing through the Yucatan and the Bay of Campeche will likely bring heavy rain along he coast. Interests along the coast should be aware that these heavy rains could cause life-threatening flash flooding and mud slides.
Tropical Depression 10 in the Caribbean is expected to produce 10-15 inches of rain over a large portion of east Mexico with isolated amounts of 25 inches in the mountainous terrain. Flash floods and mud slides are a major concern.
These two systems will both move north at about the same speed and will pretty much parallel each other 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 it looks like the entire west coast from Seattle to San Diego will be having a very pleasant weekend with abundant sunshine in the afternoons. Coastal communities will see morning fog burn off early. Northern California could see some rain next week. But that’s for a future report.
Looking over to the southwest where to the north in the Great Basin, Salt Lake area a low is moving though and it is raining there this morning. Until this low exits to the east it will allow some moisture to remain through the weekend giving a chance of some isolated showers and thunderbumpers in the mountains mainly to the east of Tucson. Temperatures will slowly rise through the weekend bringing triple digit highs to the lower deserts by Sunday.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like these strong NW winds will be with us again today and to a lesser extent tomorrow.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: NW for the next 3 days. 20 today, 18 tomorrow and 14 knots on Sunday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 19-21 for the next 3 days all from the NW.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 16-19 NW today and mid teens tomorrow. Sunday could see the winds swing to the NE.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. NE for the next 3 day. Today around 13-14 knots and over the weekend light NE.
The East Cape: Strong winds in the 20-23 knot ranges for the 3-day forecast period. Perfect winds for the kite boarders at Baja Joe’s. A bit lumpy the sailing community.
The Mexican Riviera: mostly light winds for the 3-day forecast period depending on how close that invest gets to the coast. The forecast is for NW winds to the north of Cabo Corrienties and to the south SW winds. Be advised for the potential for heavy rain along the coast over the next 3-5 days.

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.
Looking over at Sonora where there were a few cells that developed in the mountains to the east of Los Mochas last night but they have dissipated and there is just a few remnant clouds in that area right now.
No thunderbumper activity in the rest of the state. Moisture moving up from central Mexico is moving through Chihuahua into Texas again this morning.
Looking now south to the Mexican Riviera around Puerto Vallarta there were a couple of cells develop last night and moved out into the Sea and have pretty much dissipated now with just some remnant clouds in the area.
A bit further south from Cabo Corrienties south there is a solid line of thumpers along the coast to Central American this morning.

Everyone has been wondering when the other shoe would drop. Well, bonk! It’s been 4 days without anything tropical in the Eastern Pacific basin and this is the peak of our season. Careful what you ask for: In our Tropical Kitchen this morning we have invest 90 Echo. This low is currently WSW of the Gulf of Tehuantepec. The National Hurricane Center is not giving it much of a chance of development into a named storm for the next 5 days. The early computer tracks have it drifting north close to the mainland shore.
The significant feature of this system is the proximity of a low over the Yucatan this morning that will most likely see further development during the next couple of days. Even though these two systems are separated by mainland Mexico they will pretty much parallel each other as they move north. This combination could bring heavy rains to areas along the Mexican Riviera including life-threatening flash floods and mud slides.
That’s what is going on in our hood this morning. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the entire west coast will be seeing sunshine and un-September like warm weather that is expected to last into the weekend.
For southern California coastal fog in the mornings and evenings and sunshine during the day. No tropical moisture in the area so the thunderbumper activity in the mountains has diminished to almost zero.
Looking now over to the southwest where it will be mostly dry and hot into the weekend, around 106 in some desert locations. There is an upper low drifting northward across the Great Basin this morning that will allow some moisture to push into the east today into the weekend resulting in mainly isolated showers and thunderbumpers to the east of Tucson. Drier air is progged to move back into the region early next week.
Well, that is what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like we will be having two days of strong NW winds. The Sonora coast from Bahia Keno Nuevo to Guaymas should see the strongest winds and they should be in the 26-28 knot ranges. The Baja side ballpark around 20.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The Baja side of the northern Sea: NW for the 3-day forecast period. Today around 21, tomorrow 19 and Saturday the NW winds should be in moderate ranges in the mid teens.
The Sonoran side of the northern Sea: strong winds to 28 today, 24 tomorrow and mid teens on Saturday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: all NW: 26 today, 21 tomorrow and low teens on Saturday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: around 22 today, 20 tomorrow and low teens on Saturday, all from the NW.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Moderate NE today, light NE Friday and Saturday.
The East Cape: around 18 this afternoon from the NW, 16 tomorrow and 13 on Saturday.
The Mexican Riviera: Cabo Corrienties north light NW or SW. south of Cabo Corrienties light SE for the 3-day forecast period.
As far as any rain on the peninsula, Accuweather is forecasting heavy rain this afternoon and evening in the La Paz area. We’ll see?
The rest of the peninsula should see afternoon buildup along the coast with the possibility of brief afternoon showers or thunderbumpers.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez is virtually cloud free this morning. The 24 hour loop is showing mostly clear skies yesterday with afternoon fluffys popping up along the coast and back in the mountains. If they produced any rain this image is unable to pick that up. Here in Concepcion Bay we had some fluffys over the peninsula and back in the hills to the west of the cove but no thunderbumper or rain.
Looking over to Sonora I can see that that region has been pretty much cloud free for the past 24 hours. All the moisture moving up from SE Mexico has been moving up through Chihuahua and into Texas passing to the east of Sonora.
Looking now to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see a large cell has developed to the east of Puerto Vallarta and has moved toward the coast and now is in open water and now moving slowly to the north. Further down the coast there are enough several smaller cells to blanket the coast all the way south to Central America this morning.
West of the Gulf of Tehuantepec there is a large area of thunderbumpers that extend well out into the basin and into the ITCZ/Monsoon trough around 12N this morning.
There is nothing cooking in OUR Tropical Kitchen this morning.
Over in the Caribbean there is a low moving over the Yucatan today that will enter the Bay of Campeche tomorrow. No matter how this system develops it will be dumping lots of heavy rain and gusterly winds over Belize, Guatemala and the Yucatan peninsula for the next couple of days.
As this system moves in the Bay of Campeche tomorrow winds will crank up over the Tehuantepec isthmus and into the gulf of Tehuantepec. Winds in the Tehuantepec are forecast to be around 20 knots on Friday.
Long range models are not showing anything tropical popping up in our hood for the next 3-4 days.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where heat advisories have been posted by the National Weather Service for northwest Washington and Seattle today. Record highs temperatures of around 90 are forecast for Seattle today.
Northern California is forecast to continue to be warm and dry. This dry pattern is expected to persist through the workweek.
In southern California generally fair weather is expected this week. There is a slight chance of an afternoon thunderbumpers in the mountains. Building high pressure over the west will bring on a warming trend into the weekend, then as high weakens early next week it will cool down a bit.
Looking now over to the southwest where a drier and more stable westerly flow will spread across the southwest and south central Arizona the remainder of the week and weekend. Not much of a chance of any thunderbumper activity today and tomorrow; they will be limited to the mountains to the north and east. Without the moisture and the clouds temperatures will be in the triple digits through the weekend. Officially the monsoon season is now over. It looks like it’s going along with the forecast.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like we will be seeing NW winds for the 3-day forecast period. Moderate today but picking up to the mid 20s tomorrow and a bit less on Friday.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light NE today. Around 20 tomorrow and the mid teens on Friday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: they are expected to see 20-26 knot NW winds over the 3-day forecast period.
The Baja side of the central Sea: moderate today, around 20 tomorrow and high teens on Friday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. It looks like mid teens from the NE for the next 3 days.
The East Cape: All NW mid teens today and Friday and around 20 tomorrow.
The Mexican Riviera: Cabo Corrienties north light NW. South of the cape light SW for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that yesterday there was scattered fluffys, many with dark bottoms all over the central and southern Sea. There were also a few thumpers back in the mountains between La Paz and Concepcion Bay yesterday. The night has been relatively calm with no storms in the Sea; well there were a couple of cells that popped up close to shore around Topalabombo. They are still there this morning but do not appear to be getting larger or expanding out into the Sea.
This morning the Sea looks much like yesterday but with fewer fluffys roaming around. Water vapor imagery is showing most of the heavy moisture is over Sonora, so today should be a mix of sunshine and a thunderbumper or two in the afternoon. The northern Sea looks to be clear this morning except for the San Filepe area where they have had light off and on rain for the past 24 hours. .
Looking now south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see numerous thunderbumpers working along the coast all the way south to the Gulf of Tehuantepec this morning. The Tehuantepec as well as most of Central America have numerous thunderbumper all over the place. It’s hard to find a location that is not blanketed by thunderbumpers. The Mazatlan Weather Undergournd station I use, El Lido in downtown Mazatlan reported .75 inches of rain since midnight and 6.33 inches of rain yesterday. That’s a bunch of rain if the gage is correct.
The ITCZ/Monsoon trough is moderately active this morning with fewer thumpers working along the zone than that past few days.
There is nothing cooking in our Tropical Kitchen this morning. The Tropical Wave that passed over the Yucatan and into Guatemala yesterday has been absorbed by low pressure to the west of Central America and is no longer defined.
Long range models are not showing anything popping up for the next 3-4 days.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where a strong upper level ridge will keep western Washington mostly sunny and warm through late in this week.
In northern California they will be going through the changes this week. Today will be a bit cooler, tomorrow a bit warmer and finally it will cool off a bit into the weekend. No rain is in the forecast.
In southern California they will continue to have a chance of afternoon and evening showers and thunderbumpers over the mountains and deserts. A shallow marine layer will keep the coastal areas cooler.
Looking now over to the south-WET. This image is showing a broad moisture plume paralleling the Sonora and Chihuahua border this morning sending a lot of moisture into Arizona. Bob’s station in Herferd was not on this morning but in downtown Tucson it was raining. They can expect to see showers and thunderbumpers all day with the potential of heavy downpours. Moisture will be slow to clear this week keeping thunderbumpers in the forecast to the end of the work week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence wind-wise it looks like those light to moderate SE winds will continue today. Tomorrow picking up a bit from the north and Thursday strong NW winds. Ski condition: It looks like thumpers could be roaming around today in the central and southern seas and back in the mountains.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: mid teens today and tomorrow. Today SE, tomorrow NE and Thursday ballpark 20k winds from the NW.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: today moderate SW winds. Tomorrow around 20 in the afternoon from the NW and Thursday could see around 24 from the NW.
The Baja side of the central Sea: mid teens today from the SE. Mid teens tomorrow from the north and Thursday around 20 from the NW. Puerto Escondido will continue to see winds in the mid teens for the 3-day forecast period.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light SE today, moderate NE for the next two days.
The East Cape: light NE today, Moderate NW for the next two days.
The Mexican Riviera: it looks like either light SE or SW for the next 3 days.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea did not quite clear yesterday. It looks like most of the time there were big time dark bottomed fluffys from around San Francisquito Bay south to the cape. This 24 hour loop is also showing a lot a thunderbumper activity in the mountains from around Puerto Escondido south to Santa Rosalia yesterday.
Here in Concepcion Bay there were scattered showers most of the day, some very heavy. It looks like the cape region also has scattered showers. This morning this image looks like it is clearing but I was fooled yesterday. So I used the old weatherman trick and looked outside. Damn. The skies were black and it looked like it was going to rain here in the cove again this morning. Glad I checked. Cancel that clearing call.
Looking now over to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see that yesterday afternoon there were several big honk’n cell develop in the Puerto Vallarta area and drift out into the Sea. Puerto Vallarta reported almost 4 inches of rain yesterday. Most of these ended before midnight and right now I’m looking at remnant clouds as well as several new cell that have popped up that are spread out from Cabo Corrienties north to a bit north of Topalabambo.
South of Cabo Corrienties there are just some remnant clouds along the coast until you get to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where the entire isthmus is blanketed with thunderbumpers this morning. Zihuatanejo had about an inch and a half of rain yesterday none since midnight.
Looking now at Sonora from Topalabambo north to Guaymas there are several rather small cells working along the coast this morning. Inland along the Chihuahua/Sonora border there is a moisture plume that is sending a lot of moisture across the Fence into SW Arizona this morning.
There is nothing cooking in out Tropical Kitchen this morning. The remnants of Lorena are off the west coast of the Baja peninsula with just some isolated and scattered showers. This image is showing very little convection in the area.
There is a Tropical Wave moving over the Yucatan this morning with the southern arm extending to the coast of Guatemala by late this evening. It is helping fire off thunderbumpers in SE Mexico and the Gulf of Tehuantepec this morning. When, and if, it makes it into the Eastern Pacific basin it will be looking for a lonely low to stimulate. As of this morning there is nothing in the basin for it to interact with. We are in peak season right now so this honeymoon won’t last long.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where a high off the Washington coast could bring record high temperatures to Seattle through Wednesday.
In northern California this could be the last day of their heat wave. By tomorrow San Francisco will dip around 10 degrees to the mid 70s and inland should be in the low 90s.
In southern California they will continue to see isolated shower and thunderbumper activity in the mountains and deserts through midweek. High pressure from the west will build into next weekend effectively cutting off access to sub tropical moisture from the south.
Looking now over to the south-WET where Tucson radar at 5:30 this morning was showing a line of showers crossing the Fence, passing over Tucson and heading to Phoenix. The forecast for both cities is for continue scattered showers and thunderbumpers with the possibility of heavy downpours resulting in runoff problems especially late today and early tomorrow. A gradual decrease in moisture will then lead to reduced thunderbumper activity during the second half of the week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like light to moderate SE winds for today and tomorrow and moderate NE or NW on Wednesday.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light to moderate winds for the next 3 days. Today and tomorrow from the SE, Wednesday NE.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: moderate SE winds today and tomorrow then NW on Wednesday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: moderate ESE today and tomorrow then moderate NE on Wednesday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light winds for the next 3 days. Today and tomorrow SE or SW and Wednesday light NW.
The East Cape: light east today and moderate NW tomorrow and Wednesday.
The Mexican Riviera: mostly light to moderate SE for the next 3 days. Mazatlan today could see some afternoon gusts in the high teens though.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see there has been a lot of showery and thunderbumper activity in the Sea in the past 24 hours. Last night it looks like there has been quite a bit of showery and thunderbumper activity inland back in the mountains over the southern and central peninsula regions. Most of the reporting stations in the central and southern Sea reported rain yesterday but none past midnight.
There is considerable moisture moving north in Sonora. The water vapor imagery is showing a virtual river flowing into Arizona this morning. What is happening is a ridge of high pressure over the Kansas/Nebraska border and a trough of low pressure along the west coast. Between these two systems a very strong southerly flow continues to pump lots of moisture northward into Arizona.
To the west of this moisture plume in Sonora is the Sea of Cortez and for the past 24 hours most if not all of our weather has come from this plume. This image is showing the plume moving slightly to the east and in several areas of the Sea it looks to be clearing this morning, however there still appears to lots of scattered clouds in the Sea this morning. It’s hard to tell from these images whether the Sea will clear this morning or not but this latest image is showing more clear than clouds.
Looking over to southern Sonoran this morning where there was a thunderbumper around los Mochas last night that has now dissipated there are however still lots of remnant clouds in the area.
Looking south along the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see a lot of thunderbumper activity from around Puerto Vallarta to Manzanillo and from there south to Acapulco the coast is relatively clear. The Isthmus of Tehuantepec is blanketed with thunderbumpers this morning.
Looking further south there will be a Tropical Wave moving across Costa Rica and Honduras today.
Ok, looking now in our Tropical Kitchen where Sister Lerena has been short lived. Last night she was plutoed to a post-tropical remnant low and the National Hurricane Center has issued its last advisory for this system.
She is now plodding slowing along only 15 miles west of Mag Bay this morning. This image is showing very little in the way of any convection in the area however is still producing winds in the15- 25 knot ranges. She is forecast to dissipate completely by early tomorrow.
Next up will be Manuel, our 13th named storm of the season. Looking at my long range models they show nothing cooking into mid next week. We’ll see? I’m finding that most of these storms don’t look at the models.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where Seattle will be seeing sunshine today and it looks like the entire west coast will be seeing sunshine as well today.
Northern California is still seeing unseasonably warm temperatures and it looks like they will continue for the next couple of days.
In southern California they will likely see scattered thunderbumpers again today from lingering monsoonal moisture moving up from the south. The low in the Pacific could bring cooler Temperatures and drier weather with decreasing chances of thunderbumpers in the mountains and deserts about mid week.
Looking now over to the southwest. I was temped to call it the south-wet because that is what is happening there. They will continue to have abundant moisture from the south producing numerous showers and thunderbumpers though Tuesday. . I noted that Bob in Herferd received almost ¾ of an inch in the past 24 hours. His bird bath runith over.
A gradual decrease in moisture will lead to reduced thunderbumper activity during the second half of the upcoming week. Flash flooding and debris flows are a concern this weekend in several Arizona counties as well as in the Great Basin in areas where they have burn scars.
That is what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side to the Fence it looks like mostly southerlies in the mid teens for most of the Sea for the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: 10-12 knots from the SE for the 3-day forecast period.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: mostly light SW for the next 3 days.
The Baja side of the central Sea: low teens from the SE for the 3-day forecast period...
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light SE or SW for the next 3 days.
The East Cape: less than 10 for the 3-day forecast period. Today the NE, tomorrow SE and Tuesday probably back to the NE again.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta mostly light SW winds. Cabo Corrienties and south moderate SE winds.

Sea of Cortez Weather for 09/0713

By: Geary, 12:59 PM GMT on September 07, 2013

Saturday, September 07, 2013

Voice to Text

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that as sister Lorena arrived at the cape as a tropical storm it looked like a lot of rain fell. I had an email this morning from San Jose del Cabo and she had only 1.1 inches of rain. There are currently no reporting stations on the west cape but checking several hotels for their rain totals it looks like most had a little over an inch so far from this storm.
As far as La Paz there are 4 reporting stations there and none are working this morning including the airport. The Baja Insider has not updated their weather in 3 days. You would have thought they would have noticed. Bottom line: no data from La Paz.
This morning Lorena is a mere shadow of her former self and I’ll get back to her in the Tropical Kitchen.
There is a post-tropical low parked over central Mexico that is contributing to the cloudiness in the Sea this morning. Most of the Sea this morning is at least partially overcast. The other contributor is Tropical Depression Lorena.
In the far northern end of the Sea several storms ventured out over water last night. One around Puerto Panesco where 39 knot wind were recorded, and the other in the vicinity of San Filepe. Over in Sonora a nice cell built around Nogales and moved across the Fence bringing what looked like rain to the Tucson area last night.
Looking now over to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera this morning and from Mazatlan to Acapulco it looks like one solid thunderbumper.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific basin I can see the ITCZ/Monsoon trough is very active this morning with numerous thunderbumper working well out to around 140.
Looking in our Tropical Kitchen this morning I can see that, as advertized, Lorena became depressed not long after passing the cape to the west. As a tropical storm she lasted 29 hours and at 9pm last nigh she was plutoed to a Tropical Depression. She is currently slowly plugging along around 106 miles SW of the cape this morning. She will be further plutoed to a post-tropical low within the next 24 hours. Winds speeds are currently around 30 and will drop to around 20 then.
Cloudiness from this storm has spread well north into the central Sea this morning. Here in Concepción Bay we had light rain for about an hour early this morning and I could here thunder back in the hill until around 5 this morning.
No more heavy rain is forecast thus the possibility of flooding in the arroyos has been diminished, but still possible. Be advised the fat lady ain’t sung yet!
Of Note: There are currently 3 Tropical Wave traversing the Atlantic this morning. Two are well out and one in just moving into Central America near Honduras this morning. That will be the one to watch.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the Great Northwest will continue to scattered showers though the weekend. Sunday they should start to diminish.
In northern California no rain, but an unseasonal heat wave with San Francisco seeing temperatures in the 80s today. Inland valleys in triple digits.
In southern California it will continue to be hot and muggy. Even though is will be mostly overcast today in San Diego the temperatures will be in the low 80s. Isolated to scattered thunderbumpers will continue to be possible over the mountains and deserts in the afternoons and evenings over the weekend.
Looking now over to the southwest where it looked like they had few showers this morning. The forecast is for showers and thunderbumpers to continue to increase through the weekend and early next week as moisture increases from across the Fence, especially tomorrow through Tuesday. The second half of next week should see a little less monsoonal activity.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like from Cabo San Lucas to Concepcion Bay we could see a few showers today. Wind-wise moderate southerlies are on tap for the 3-day forecast period. The exception could be from Cabo Falso to Abreojos with that Tropical Depression in the vicinity the next couple of days.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The outside: The storm is only 100 miles off shore with winds in the 20-30k ranges today so you could see those ranges along the west cape to Mag Bay today. The official forecast is in the high teens though.
The northern Sea: mid teens today from the SE and the light SE winds Sunday and Monday.
The central Sea: moderate southerlies, mostly SE for the 3-day forecast period.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. It looks like mostly light SE or SW for the 3-day forecast period.
The East Cape: light mostly SE for the next three days.
The Mexican Riviera: Cabo Corrienties north: light SW. South of Cabo Corrienties: light mostly SE for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that yesterday and a good part of last night most of the Sea has been cloud free. This morning there has been some thunderbumper activity to the east of Los Mochas. One of these cells has moved toward the coast and grown and is now spread out about half way across the Sea toward La Paz this morning. This last image is showing this cell and sister Lorena almost merging and the cape is just starting to see some rain. There has been a few thumpers to the north of los Mochas but all have stayed on land.
From around La Paz north the Sea looks to be cloud free this morning.
Looking south I can see sister Lorena around 211 miles due south of the cape chugging up toward the cape this morning. I’ll discuss her when we get into the Tropical Kitchen.
Along the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera it’s hard to find a place where there is not a thumper over it. Lots of rain along the coast first from Tropical Depression 9E and now from sister Lorena.
Further south we have a Tropical Wave entering Sea around Central America this morning. It will be looking for a lonely low to stimulate.
OK, now looking in our Tropical Kitchen this morning we have sister Lorena, formally Tropical Depression 9E, she is now a tropical storm and our 12th named storm in the Eastern Pacific basin. Original computer tracks were for her to skirt around to the west of the peninsula. She did not read the forecast and is now taking dead aim on the cape.
She has just a short time if she is to intensify today; otherwise the majority of the models have here hitting the cape at a tropical storm Saturday morning. An alternative...but unlikely scenario...is for Lorena to traverse the Sea of Cortez and retain tropical storm status for an additional couple of days as suggested by the GFDL model. There is an old weather adage that says, “The Sea of Cortez sucks”, meaning with the warm Temperatures and the low pressure in the Sea draws these storms into the Sea. Let’s hope that sister Lorena keeps a steady course toward the cape and becomes depressed where she arrived in Cabo tomorrow.
She should be spreading rain as far as Santa Rosalia by Monday.
That’s what is going on in out hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where up in the Great Northwest heavy rain will impact both Washington and Oregon today. The low will linger over eastern Washington tomorrow before exiting to the east early Sunday. It should dry out next week.
In northern California a fall heat wave will be cranking up today. Temperatures are forecast to be in the low to mid 100s in the inland areas over the weekend.
In southern California summer is not over yet. It will be hot and muggy through tomorrow. High pressure will continue to dominate the weather with temperatures 5-15 degrees above normal. Inland temperatures will peak around or slightly above 100 for areas within 10 miles of the coast. There is the possibility of some afternoon showers or thunderbumper that could moderate the heat a little, but not much.
Looking now over to the southwest where it will be hot and dry with only a chance of some thunderbumper activity today. Most of the action will be across the Fence and in southern California.
Tomorrow should start to see in increase in showers and thunderbumpers that should continue though the early part of next week. They should start to see a cooling trend on Sunday.
That’s what is gong on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the entire Sea with the exception of the cape region will be seeing SW winds in the mid teens for today and tomorrow and the mid teens from the NE on Sunday.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: moderate SE today and tomorrow and light NE on Sunday.
The central sea: moderate southerlies for the 3-day forecast period.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Right now it looks like the San Lorenzo channel south will be seeing moderate southerlies for the 3-day forecast period, depending on what sister Lorena does. The cape region will be seeing high teens today and around 30 tomorrow when the storm is forecast to arrive.
The Mexican Riviera: strong winds around Mazatlan for the next 3 days to perhaps the low 20s.
As far as rain, it looks like starting tomorrow the peninsula will be seeing rain advance north over the next couple of days as the depression moves north over the peninsula. Right now it looks like it will progress slow so there is a good possibility of arroyos flooding. Be advised and take precautions if you are in one of these areas.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the cape region including La Paz got a good drenching from that cell that was there yesterday morning. It moved off to the west around mid morning. This morning there are a few fluffys in the area but out in the southern Sea it looks to be clear of any cloudiness.
The rest of the Sea also looks to be clear this morning. There has been very little thunderbumper activity over in Sonora in the past 24 hours and no storms moved out into the Sea.
Looking now at the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see that around midnight a cell started building to the east of Puerto Vallarta and as it got larger It moved NW out into the Sea. At 5am it was due west of Puerto Vallarta. At 7am it has moved up to the southern crossing and spread to be due south of the cape to mazatlan. If it continues on this track it will again bring showers to the cape later this morning.
Looking further south along the west coast it looks like there have been numerous thunderbumpers pop up and down overnight and they continue to do that his morning all the way south to Central America all along the coast.
Looking in our Tropical Kitchen this morning invest 99 has been upgraded to a Tropical Depression 12 echo and is currently 106 miles west of Manzanillo.
Yesterday morning I said that this system would have to become better organized if it wanted to be a player. Well that is exactly what has happened overnight. It has become better defined and will most likely become our next tropical storm later today, her name will be Lorena. This looks like it will another 4 day tropical storm that is forecast to follow the previous two tropical storms and skirt the cape to the west. Development past a hurricane is unlikely.
Meantime with the close proximity to land she is dumping a lot of rain along the coast. She should approach the cape on Sunday as a tropical storm then quickly weaken, then a couple more days as a Tropical Depression then she’s history.
As for any Tropical Waves moving into the Eastern Pacific basin, there are currently 4 Tropical Waves crossing the Atlantic this morning, perhaps one will sneak through and tickle the fancy of one of our lows. We’ll see?
That’s what is happening in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where a low off the Washington coast will move ashore today bringing more rain and flash flooding to Washington and Oregon into the weekend.
Northern California won’t see any of this rain just some cloudiness and a slight cooling. High pressure should arrive over the weekend ushering in a warming trend for the weekend. Coastal temperatures will be in the 70s and 80s and the upper 90s for the inland valleys.
In southern California tropical moisture will continue to bring the threat of afternoon showers and thunderbumpers over the mountains and deserts.
Yesterday afternoon thunderbumpers over the mountains caused more local flash flooding, and rain over the fire burn scar produced another debris flow down into dry washes around Palm Springs and Cathedral City.
They are expecting more of the same for today and Friday. Inland temperatures will soar to around 100 degrees today with the weekend looking like it will produce some relief from the heat and storms.
Looking now over to the southwest where our friend Bob (DHL) in Herford would call today a NONsoon. This image is showing Arizona to be pretty much cloud free this morning. Very little if any thunderbumper activity is expected today and tomorrow with drier air over the area. Deep moisture will move up from across the fence into the region over the weekend and increase the afternoon and evening thunderbumpers there.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the entire Sea will be seeing light northerlies again today. Tomorrow into the weekend the moderate southerlies return.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light northerlies today then the low teens on Friday and Saturday from the SE.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: mid to low teens for the 3-day forecast period. Today from the SW, Thursday and Friday just the south.
The Baja side of the central Sea: light east of NE today then moderate SE for Friday and Saturday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Mostly light SE over the 3-day forecast period.
The East Cape: Moderate NE today, Moderate SE tomorrow and then return to the moderate NE or possibly SE on Saturday.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta mostly SW for the 3-day forecast period. Cabo Corrienties south mostly SE with Manzanillo seeing 20+ knot of wind today and then in the high teens tomorrow, Saturday the low teens all from the SE.

That was my weather this morning. Rather than a dumb crook story here is something else that has made me smile.


For those of us who choose to summer in the Sea of Cortez we are fortunate to witness the blooming of the desert following a summer storm.
That hillside that a week ago was a rusty brown is now a brilliant green.
The green grass along side Mex 1 is now high enough to hide the foot high guard rails.
Those bushes that were plain and bare a week ago are now covered with those pretty white flowers and are now as high as a…. donkeys eye.
A gravel field that a week ago was a dull grey is now a kaleidoscope of color from tiny flowers that have mystically appeared.
Everywhere you look the desert has bloomed.
This is truly an amazing transformation and one of Baja’s unique experiences.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see the yesterday afternoon storms started building over in Sonora starting just north of Mazatlan to Hermosillo. The storms just got bigger and bigger developed into a MCS covering the entire state. Remember a (MCS), mesoscale convective system is a complex of thunderbumpers that becomes organized on a scale larger than the individual thunderstorms but smaller than a hurricane.
Late in the evening this system started moving across the Sea. This morning a strong cell is still parked over the cape region to La Paz. Another looks to be back in the mountains SW of Concepcion Bay.
In the 7th inning of the A’s game, at a little after 10 last night, here in the cove had few wind gusts to almost 30 knots and winds to around 18 knots until around 1 o’clock this morning along with lightning and thunder to the north albeit no rain.
This morning it looks like the skies are clearing from around Puerto Escondido north.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see solid thunderbumper activity from Puerto Vallarta, where there is a big honk’n cell over it this morning, to Acapulco this morning.
Again this morning the ITCZ/Monsoon trough is quite active this morning.
Looking into our Tropical Kitchen this morning there is a low, (invest 99) around a hundred miles west of Zihuatanejo this morning. As of right now not much is happening there with only some light showers and a few thunderbumpers. It is however in the birthing zone for our tropical storms. It needs to become better organized if wants to be a player though. The National Hurricane Center is giving it a 50% chance of developing into a Tropical Depression in the next couple of days and a 70% chance of becoming a named storm in the next 5 days. The early tracks show this system moving well west of the cape next weekend. Two of the three models I use show this system not developing past a weak tropical storm. With no real agreement on what will develop we will have to wait and see.
Regardless this system, with it’s proximity to land, (only 100 miles off shore), will be producing some heavy rains and gusterly winds along the mainland coast.
Tropical waves are lined up across the Atlantic with one bumping into the Yucatan this morning bringing with it lots of rain for that region.
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 a strong low that has been off the Washington coast for a few days begin to move east. The main impact will be to increase the potential for significant rain in the Great Northwest from tomorrow through Friday.
With that low to the north exiting to the east the threat of showers in northern California has diminished. The north state should see a warming trend into the weekend with lots of sunshine.
Yesterday afternoon in southern California thunderbumpers filled the mountain and desert skies with lightning and thunder along with drenching downpours that produced flash flooding and debris flows in burn scared areas. A debris flow filled a normally dry creek that runs through Palm Springs and Cathedral City.
The storms faded with the setting sun leaving behind another clear warm night for the southland.
There is still a lot of moisture in the air and thunderbumper are in the forecast for today but not quite a strong as yesterday.
Looking now over to the southwest where drier air moving in from the east will limit the thunderbumper activity today through the end of the week. Tropical moisture may return over the weekend for an increase in monsoonal activities. Sunday look like the best chance of showers and thunderbumper to return to the Tucson area.
Meantime only in the higher elevations in Arizona and on this side of the Fence will there be much in the way of thunderbumper activity.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like two more days of light northerlies then moderate southerlies on Friday.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: less than 10 today and tomorrow and low teens on Friday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: light SW winds today and tomorrow and then low teens from the SE on Friday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: light to moderate NE today and tomorrow and then high teens on Friday from the SE.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light mostly SE for the 3-day forecast period.
The East Cape: light NW today, then light SE Thursday and Friday.
The Mexican Riviera: Cabo Corrienties north light NW. Cabo Corrienties south to light today from the SE then the possibility of strong winds from a wanna-be low moving along coast close to shore. Interests in the region be advised. Heavy rain will also be a probability.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez is pretty much free of any clouds this morning. Well, there are a few fluffys here and there by that’s about it.
Looking over to Sonora this morning I can see that that cell that developed over Mazatlan yesterday morning then moved north up the Sea finally dissipated around noon. In the northern end of the state a cell that built on this side of the Fence during the night moved into Arizona mid morning and quickly moved north. Other than that Sonora has been relatively quiet for the past 24 hours.
Looking now south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera where I can see there is a nice sized cell building around Puerto Vallarta this morning and from there south to Central America there is a solid line of thunderbumpers along the coast.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific basin and the ITCZ/Monsoon trough it is quite active this morning with thunderbumpers popping up all along 10N this morning.

In our Tropical Kitchen this morning we have two significant lows. One is Kiko or actually the remnant low of former tropical storm Kiko that is well off the central Baja coast and in this image there is not a cloud in that vicinity.
The other is invest 99 which popped up fairly close to shore, about 100 miles west of Acapulco last night. It has attached itself to a Tropical Wave that entered the basin yesterday. The good folks at the National Hurricane Center are giving this system a good chance of becoming our next named storm in the next couple of days.
Bertha, a lady who runs a small tienda here on the beach told me yesterday, and this was before this low popped up, that we would have a hurricane off the mainland coast on Thursday. I don’t know here sources but she has not been wrong yet. I’m putting two dollars to win on Lorena being our next tropical storm on Thursday. I could loose this one as two of the three models I use are showing this system barely making tropical storm status. We'll see?
Of Note: There are currently 4 Tropical Waves moving across the Atlantic this morning. At least one of these will make it all the way to the Eastern Pacific basin over the next week. The rest will be looking to spawn storms in the Atlantic.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America were extreme northern California to Seattle are getting wet this morning. This is due to a low parked off the Washington coast .
The San Francisco Bay Area and the inland valleys will be seeing mostly sunshine and coastal temperatures in the 60s and inland in the low 90s.
In southern California they will continue to see subtropical moisture move up from the south bringing showers and thunderbumper to mainly the deserts and mountains. Temperatures in the San Diego area will be in the 80s with slightly lower humidity into mid week.
Looking now over to the southwest where today should be a much more active day across the southwest Arizona. Drier air moving in from the east that will limit thunderbumper activity to mainly the higher terrain Wednesday through Friday. They could see in increase in monsoonal conditions next weekend.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like two more days of light to moderate northerlies then Thursday the winds swing back to the SE.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: low teens for the next 3 days. Today and tomorrow from the NE and Thursday SE.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: pretty much light SW for the 3-day forecast period.
The Baja side of the central Sea: light NE today and tomorrow and moderate SE on Thursday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light winds over the 3-day forecast period. Today from the NW, tomorrow E then swinging to the SE on Thursday.
The East Cape: light NE today, light SE tomorrow then moderate SE on Thursday.
The Mexican Riviera: Cabo Corrienties north mostly moderate SW winds. South of Cabo Corrienties mostly light SE winds for the 3-day forecast period.

Voice to Text

Looking down into the Sea this Labor Day morning I can see that yesterday morning Tropical Depression Kiko was spinning some mostly scattered whispys over the southern Sea. Most of these did not cross the Sea but stayed close the Baja coast and extended south along the Baja coast to around Santa Rosalia by early afternoon.
This morning there is still some residual cloudiness spread out over the peninsula from around Puerto Escondido to Santa Rosalia that extends a short ways out into the Sea. Otherwise the rest of the Sea looks to be clear this morning.
Over in Sonora the thunderbumper activity was fairly light with only one large cell developing in central Sonora and during the night move toward the Fence where it stayed in the NW corner of the state not crossing the Fence until this time this morning.
Looking to the south I can see a cell developed to the east of Puerto Vallarta and as it built it moved NW and as of 5am was centered over Mazatlan and was moving out into the southern crossing. By 7am it has moved north to almost Los Mochas and crossed about half way across the Sea.
Looking further south along the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see that all along the coast it is a hotbed of thunderbumper activity all the way south to the Tehuantepec this morning.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific basin and this ITCZ/Monsoon trough I can see that it too is very activity this morning with numerous thunderbumpers working all along 10N this morning.
Looking now in our Tropical Kitchen this morning where we have Tropical Depression Kiko around 362 miles WNW of the cape. She almost made hurricane status yesterday with an outer eye almost forming but collapsed quickly. The remaining convection is barely visible this morning and the system is progged to Pluto to a remnant low later today where it is expected to park for a few days or very slowly move north. Regardless after this morning we shouldn’t be seeing any more cloudiness from this system.
There are a couple of lonely lows embedded in the monsoon trough around 125 and 136 west that are expected to crank up over the next couple of days. They will be courted by a Tropical Wave this is crossing the Yucatan peninsula and Guatemala this morning. It is moving into western Honduras and El Salvador bringing heavy rains and thunderbumpers. We should see some tropical development about mid week from one or both of these two systems.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where again in Seattle there is a threat of showers today as an upper level low approaches the coast.
In northern California the models are showing that low in the Great Northwest dragging a cold front with it and bringing a threat of showers in northern California today through Thursday when it is progged to eject to the east.
In southern California there will be a slight decrease in the monsoonal moisture moving into the region today resulting in a few less thunderbumpers in the mountains and deserts today. Tomorrow the thunderbumpers and showers will crank up a bit until around mid week.
Looking now over to the southwest where there will be a slight decline in the moisture in the region but enough to produce isolated and scattered showers and thunderbumpers for the first half of the week then to a lesser extent the later portion.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence in general it looks like light to moderate northerlies for the entire Sea for the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: low to mid teens from the north for the 3-day forecast period.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: moderate in the mid teen from the NW for the 3-day forecast period.
The Baja side of the central Sea: light to moderate winds 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: around 10 knots today from the NW then light winds from the SE for Tuesday and Wednesday.
The Mexican Riviera: I could just rubber stamp their weather. Cabo Corrienties north light WSW. South of Cabo Corrienties mostly light SE for the next 3 days.

Voice to text:

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that that large cell that took up most of the central Sea yesterday morning took it’s time clearing to the west around noon yesterday.
This morning the southern Sea is seeing mostly whispys from TROPICAL STORM Kiko that is SW of the cape this morning. As Kiko spins up today it looks like the outer clouds in this swirl could move into the central Sea. Should this happen we could see a couple of days of overcast skies albeit no rain. We’ll see?
Over in Sonora this morning most of the thunderbumper activity took place in the northern portion with one large cell sending some cloudiness over the northern Sea last night. It is dissipating this morning.
Looking now south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera where the coast is virtually clear all the way south to the Tehuantepec where there is a big honk’n thunderbumper sitting right over the top of the Gulf this morning.
Looking in our Tropical Kitchen this morning I can see that TROPICAL STORM Kiko is currently 329 miles WSW of the cape on a very slow Northwestern track and is forecast to pose no threat to land.
Kiko cranked up during the night and as advertized could briefly become a hurricane today before moving into cooler waters later this evening. Models remain consistent with the storm becoming a remnant low in about 3 days and dissipate shortly thereafter.
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 will be seeing sunshine during the day with the threat of rain returning this evening into early next week.
On this first day of meteorological fall in northern California the coast and the inland valleys will be experiencing very pleasant weather. Mid 60s along the coast and the low to mid 90s inland.
In southern California monsoonal moisture will continue to move into the southland all week into next weekend. There will be a decrease in the thunderbumper activity in the mountains and deserts today and pick up a bit next week. The high temperatures today and for most of the week will be around 80 in San Diego.
Looking now over to the southwest where this image is showing lots of thunderbumper activity from that dying thunderbumper complex south of Nogales last night. This image is showing just a shallow overflow crossing the Fence. The best chances for thunderbumper activity this evening will be in the higher elevations. Labor Day could see an uptick in activity with Tuesday promising to be more active.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the winds for next 3 days will, in general, be in the light to moderate ranges.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: southern winds in the mid teens.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: mostly light SW for the 3-day forecast period.
The Baja side of the central Sea: light today from the east then low to mid teens for Monday and Tuesday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Mostly light SW winds for the next 3 days.
The East Cape: light winds: today from the ENE, tomorrow SSW and Tuesday ENE again.
The Mexican Riviera: Cabo Corrienties north: light NW. South of Cabo Corrienties light southerlies for the 3-day forecast period.
