Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see some remnant
clouds from our old pal Ray passing over the cape region this morning. Nothing in these clouds look like rain producers this morning. The clouds also pretty much blanket the southern crossing this morning.
It is also completely overcast here in the cove this morning with very dark bottom fluffys. The satellite image is not showing these clouds. I discovered them by using the old weatherman trick…I looked outside.
Looking south along the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera where it is pretty much solid overcast this morning from Mazatlan to Acapulco. The responsible thunderbumper activity is mostly off shore.
Further south the Gulf of Tehuantepec remains quiet this morning with winds in the 5-10 knot ranges forecast for the 3-day forecast period.
I was just about to close the door on the Tropical Kitchen for the season with Ray, you remember Ray the storm that would not go away, finally being plutoed to a remnant low and parked SW of the cape.
Well, yesterday morning a low popped up around 400 miles west of Manzanillo and by mid morning the Navy had assigned it invest 97Echo. This storm will become our next hurricane, Sonia, and all the models are showing her tracking due north and arriving at the cape in a couple of days and briefly entering the Sea of Cortez as a hurricane.
Beyond the obvious problems associated with a hurricane in the hood we have 164 boats with mostly unseasoned sailors, in the Baja Ha Ha forecast to arrive about the same time. Hopefully those folks that make the decisions of “go/no-go” with give very serious consideration to parking in Turtle Bay until this late season hurricane blows over. As unpredictable as the tracks have been this season it would be an act of foolishness to think that this storm could not move down the Pacific side of the peninsula.
The old axiom “Better be safe than sorry.” certainly applies here.
So we keep the Tropical Kitchen into November: Very unusual!
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the storm door is open in the Great Northwest today with a cold front moving through bringing rain to as far south as Eureka California and high elevation snow to the Cascades.
In northern California it will remain cool, actually cold and dry into next week. The expected storm on the horizon for next week now looks like it will take a northerly path and enter the storm door in the Seattle area.
In southern California high pressure will continue to warm the daytime highs though tomorrow. Overnight lows will remain chilly. A cooling trend will begin Saturday through Monday then a warming trend is progged for the later part of the week for the southland.
Looking now over to the south west where dry conditions will prevail into early nest week. More 3-dog+ nights are in the forecast with overnight lows in the 40s.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the two-day-NW blow will be over on Saturday and what looks like a pleasant weekend for most of the Sea. The fly in the ointment could be that storm in the cape region.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: 20-22 today and tomorrow and light NW on Saturday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 23 today, 26 tomorrow and then around 18 on Saturday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: about the same with 20 today, 26 tomorrow and then mid teens on Saturday.
Puerto Escondido: mid teens today from the north. 23 tomorrow NW, and Saturday moderate NE.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. All NW 16 today, 18 tomorrow, and 12 on Saturday.
La Paz: strong NW winds for the 3-day forecast period. Today 20, tomorrow 25, and Saturday around 17.
The East Cape: strong NW winds in the 18-23 knot ranges for the next 3 days.
The Mexican Riviera: light NW Cabo Corrienties north. Cabo Corrienties mid to high teens for the next 3 days. Manzanillo 15-18 SE for the next 3 days, and Zihuatanejo light SW.
Don’t forget, those of you having trick or treaters tonight, you will have another crowd on dia de muerta on the 2nd of November so buy extra candy.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the plume from now Tropical Depression Raymond continues to blanket the Sea from Concepcion Bay to the cape with a broad wet moisture plume. The plume appears to be getting lighter with fewer hot spots that could be shower producers in this latest look.
North of Concepcion Bay this skies look to be clear of any cloudiness.
The southern crossing has cloud cover about half way across this morning.
Looking south along the west coast of Mexico I can see considerable thunderbumper activity along the coast from Manzanillo south.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific basin this morning looking at the ITCZ/Monsoon trough I can see considerable thunderbumper activity all along the zone out to around 130 this morning.
Inside the Gulf of Tehuantepec the winds are forecast to be in the 8-10 knot ranges for the 3-day forecast period.
In our Tropical Kitchen this morning you remember my old pal Ray, the storm that just won’t go away. This morning at 1am Forecaster Brown at the National Hurricane Center, with a big yawn, plutoed Ray to a tropical depression. At that time Ray was 383 miles SW of the cape and sending a broad wet moisture plume over Baja from Concepcion Bay to the cape, including half of the southern crossing.
This is now day 10 for Ray and the fat lady said “Screw it, I’m going home.” She’s been up and down a half dozen time in the past week.
It looks like Ray will continue to send this moisture plume over the peninsula for at least one more day, probably to some degree tomorrow as well. Rain, Why not! He has been a tropical storm 3 times, a cat1, cat2 and a cat 3 hurricane and a Tropical Depression twice now. Perhaps snow this afternoon. We haven’t seen that yet. We’ll see?
Oh by the way there is another disturbance that popped up west of Acapulco about where Ray started ten days ago. It had not been give an invest status at 5am this morning however the National Hurricane Center has given it a 50% chance of developing into our next storm. Whooopee! I want to close the Tropical Kitchen
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where that cold air mass is slowly moving off to the east and it remains cold all along the west coast today. High pressure will fill in the wake of this departing low bringing a return of warmer and dry conditions for the rest of the week.
The storm door is cracked open in the Great Northwest with a strong wet front moving through on Saturday and Sunday with another on its tails.
Northern California will remain dry for the 3-day forecast period, however long ranges models are optimistically showing the first real storm of the season could be on the horizon next week.
In southern California it will be cool and sunny today with warmer Temperature on tap for Halloween. A weak trough will bring cooler weather and a slight chance of showers Sunday night or Monday. A warming trend will begin on Tuesday.
Looking now over to the southwest where aside from the possibility of a few showers across the White Mountains this morning dry condition will prevail into early next week. It will again be cold tonight and frost on the pumpkin tomorrow night with some of the coldest temperatures of the season on tap. Three dogs, plus rent-pooch nights!
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the northern Sea will see strong winds in the low 20s for the 3-day forecast period. The rest of the Sea should see pleasant winds today building tomorrow and Friday to the 20s.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: 20 knot NW afternoon winds for the next 3 days
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: less than 10 today, around 23 tomorrow and 26 on Friday all from the NW.
The Baja side of the central Sea: light NE continue today building tomorrow to around 20 and 25 on Friday.
Puerto Escondido: light SE today, moderate northerlies tomorrow and low 20s on Friday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Mid to high teens from the NE for the next 3 days.
La Paz: 20 knot NE today, 21 tomorrow from the NW and 24 on Friday from the NW
East Cape: strong winds from the NW in the 20-24 knot ranges for the 3-day forecast period.
Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan will be seeing light SW for the next 3 days and the rest mostly light SE.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see a thin band of mostly whispys moving off of Himicane Raymond and passing over the cape region this morning.
The rest of the Sea is and has been free of any clouds for the past 24 hours.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see a little thunderbumper activity around Zihuatanejo again this morning but that’s about it for any clouds along the Riviera this morning.
Further south 20-30 knot winds will persist today in the Gulf of Tehuantepec diminishing to the 20-24 knot ranges tomorrow and less on Wednesday.
It looks like the Tropical Kitchen will be open in November. Raymond will be with us in one from or another until the weekend. Over night he has cranked up to a category 2 storm again. Today he hits colder waters and will be a cat 1 storm again. Tuesday and Wednesday a tropical storm for the 3rd time in its life span. Thursday a tropical depression, Friday a Post-Tropical Low and dissipate on Saturday around 400 miles SW of the cape.
That is the official forecast. He has not paid much attention to the forecasts so far, so we continue to play the waiting game.
So it looks like we will be bringing the fat lady out later this week to finally sing the swan song for Raymond. It’s time we close the Tropical Kitchen for the season.
That being said the blogger in La Paz is still forecasting rain tomorrow and Wednesday for the cape area and heavy in the Comondu area. Could happen, we’ll see?
Well, that’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where a big honk’n low has dropped out of British Columbia and is bringing cold and wet to the west coast today and tomorrow.
Portland is forecasting a hard freeze.
In northern California some rain in the low lands, and snow in the Sierras. Lake Tahoe is forecasting only a couple of inches of new snow.
This is not a particularly wet storm. Cold is its main feature. Temperatures will drop 10-20 degrees from Saturday in most locations in California.
Southern California is forecast to have light rain through tomorrow along with very gusterly conditions inland and small craft advisories at the coast.
Clearing will begin late Tuesday as the low exits to the east into the Great Basin. Temperatures will return to near normal by the end of the week.
Looking now over to the southwest where that cold low will dig into the Great Basin for the first half of the week. The Tucson area can expect gusterly winds today and tomorrow with much colder temperatures expanding to the entire southwest by Wednesday. There is a slight chance of showers in the higher elevation tomorrow through Wednesday. Three dog nights are forecast following this system later in the week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on his side of the Fence it looks like the next two days the Sonoran side of the Sea will be seeing southerlies and the Baja side NE.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: less than 10 from the SW today and tomorrow then around 19 on Wednesday from the NE.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: very light SE or SW today and tomorrow and then mid teens from the NW of Wednesday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: NE for the 3-day forecast period. Light today and moderate for the next two days.
Puerto Escondido: SE for the 3-day forecast period. Light today, high teens tomorrow and mid teens on Wednesday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Light winds for the next 3 days. Today southerly, tomorrow NW and Wednesday probably from the east.
La Paz: light today from the SE. around 20 tomorrow NW and low teens on Wednesday from the NE.
The East Cape: all from the north. Light today then moderate tomorrow and Wednesday.
Mexican Riviera: light winds for the 3-day forecast period Mazatlan SW for the 3-day forecast period. Puerto Vallarta: NW today, WSW Tuesday and Wednesday. Cabo Corrienties and south mostly light SW for the next 3 days.

Voice to Text

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that a few whispys passed over the northern Sea over night but that is all the clouds that I can see for the Sea in the past 24 hours.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico I can see a few small thunderbumpers working well south around Zihuatanejo but from there north the coast is pretty much clear.
Further south in the Gulf of Tehuantepec 20-30 knot winds will decrease to 20 knots or less later today, then crank up to the 20-25 ranges tonight and back to less than 20 on Monday.
And in our Tropical Kitchen at 2am this morning the National Hurricane Center issued its 30th advisory on Raymond. He is now a cat 1 himicane again and is forecast to remain a category one for the next 3 days intensifying just a little today with 85 knot gusts.
Back on October 20th Ray was just a Tropical Depression, later that day he became a tropical storm and the following day became a himicane. On the 22nd a category 3 hurricane close to the mainland coast. On the 23 he started his trek west as a tropical storm again and has sort of meandered NW of Acapulco slowly moving to the NW until this morning at 2am when he was upgraded to a hurricane again.
The “Official” forecast is for Ray to be plutoed to a tropical storm on Tuesday again and then Thursday be plutoed to a Tropical Depression.
This morning Ray is 633 miles SW of the cape and by Thursday he will have traveled less than a hundred miles and be around 550 miles SW of the cape.
Who know what he will do then? That would be Saturday November 2nd. Perhaps it’s just a coincidence that it will be Dia de los Muertos (Day of the dead) in Mexico. Hopefully just die.
That being said one of the bloggers in La Paz is calling for rain and thunderbumpers across a broad portion of southern Baja mid week with heavy rain in the Comondu region. We’ll see?
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where a big honk’n cold low is dipping down from British Columbia his morning and is bringing cold, rain and wind to the west coast through Tuesday.
Snow only in the higher elevation of the Cascades but as the storm moves south the northern Sierras will see snow levels drop to around 4000 feet.
In the southern California mountains the snow level will be around 5000 feet. They can expect daytime highs to dip as much as 10-15 cooler than yesterday. Strong winds are also forecast for the southland with gust to 55 and isolated gust to 70 mph possible mainly tomorrow.
Rain will start to spread late tonight through Monday with more significant rain expected along the west of the mountains late today through Monday.
Looking now over to the southwest where under weak high pressure it will remain mild and dry today. That British Columbia system will exit California and, like normal, move NE passing over the top of Arizona into the Great Basin early next week. During the passing the southwest can expect much colder temperatures and on Wednesday a slight chance of showers.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence in general light to moderate southerlies for today and probably tomorrow.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light winds for the 3-day forecast period. Today SE, tomorrow SW and on Tuesday NE.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: also light winds for the 3-day forecast period. Today west, tomorrow SE and on Tuesday light west again.
The Baja side of the central Sea: low teens for the next 3 days all from east or SE.
Puerto Escondido: light SE for the next 3 days.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. light SE today, light SW tomorrow, and moderate NW on Tuesday.
La Paz: light NE today, light SE tomorrow and around 17 on Tuesday from the NE.
The East Cape: light today NW, lighter tomorrow from the east, and then on Tuesday around 17 from the NW.
The Mexican Riviera: in Mazatlan for the next 3 days light SW. Puerto Vallarta light NW, Cabo Corrienties and south 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 has again been cloud free for the past 24 hours.
Looking south along the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see a long light stringy moisture plume moving off of tropical storm Raymond and moving between Puerto Vallarta and Cabo Corrienties this morning and I can see a small thunderbumper building in the Zihuatanejo area this morning and that’s pretty much it for any clouds along the coast this morning.
Further south in the Gulf of Tehuantepec the winds have decreased below gale force, however the northerly winds are in the 20-30 knot ranges with seas 8-12 feet. The winds will decrease a little more tomorrow then 20 knots or less on Monday with seas less than 8 feet.
In out Tropical Kitchen this morning the National Hurricane Center issued it’s 26th advisory on Raymond. He is still a tropical storm 591 miles SW of the cape this morning. The official forecast is for Ray to continue moving west today and tomorrow as a tropical storm then intensify to a himicane again Sunday evening and hook a hard right on Monday and head in the general direction of Baja on Tuesday. The latest forecast (#26) showed Ray doing a “Crazy Ivan” Wednesday and heading back due east toward the mainland rather than the earlier forecast track of NE. I’m sure that over this weekend and the next couple of days we will see the track change many times.
I noted that one of the bloggers in the La Paz area is saying that, “that same (I think he meant some.) areas of Baja, in the Comondu region should brace for even more rain beginning Tuesday and becoming heavy at times on Wednesday”.
Well maybe yes, maybe no, the storm would still be around 500 miles SW of the cape on Tuesday. Me, I’m not going to try to second guess this goofy storm.
Well, that’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where high pressure is expected to build along the coast of southern California today. Keeping the temperatures in the southland in the 80s and 90s.
The Great Northwest will avoid any rain today however there is a strong low that will be dipping down from British Columbia. This is not a particularly wet storm but it will be cold. Today is the seventh day in a row that Seattle has been completely fogged in. They are calling it “Fogmageddon”. It is a dense low street hugging fog, with the tops of most building visible. Great photo opps for folks working on the upper floors of office buildings.
There is a slim possibility that this British Columbia system could bring showers to northern California tomorrow.
That system will also cool off the southland and bring a chance of some rain to the southern California mountains late Monday into Monday evening.
Looking now over to the southwest where weak high pressure will provide a milder than normal weekend. That British Columbia low will end up near Reno on Monday morning then very slowly exit the Great Basin by Thursday. Tuesday and Wednesday the Tucson area could see some rain. Maybe, perhaps .
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like moderate NW winds today, light NE tomorrow and then most likely the last day of southerly winds for the season on Monday as that area around Yuma to Needles has cooled off and the thermal low there has pretty much run its course for the year. You have probably heard me mention that historically the 28th of October is the end of our summer southerlies. You can almost bank on it.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that again this morning the skies over Baja have been clear for the past 24 hours.
Off the west coast of the Baja peninsula it looks like a rather heavy fog bank is hugging the coast from around Turtle Bay north into northern California this morning.
Looking now south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see a few rather thin remnant clouds from Raymond passing over Cabo Corrienties this morning. The rest of the Mexican Riviera is pretty much cloud free.
In the Gulf of Tehuantepec we have a wind event, aka a Tehuantepecker with 30-41 knot winds and 17 foot seas. The winds are forecast to diminish to below gale force in 24 hours with overnight winds in the Gulf in the 20-25 knot ranges through Monday.
I would have though I’d have closed the Tropical Kitchen
Weeks ago but that’s not the case.
It looks like Raymond just won’t go away. He is now 184 miles further west of where he was yesterday; 482 miles west of Acapulco. He is no longer producing the torrential rains along the mainland coast and the current direction is pretty much due west. One would think that this was the last we would see of Raymond and he would continue on his way to Hawaii.
Ney, ney, ney, say the forecasters. They think that Raymond will re-intensify to a minimal hurricane again in the next couple of days, hit colder water revert back to a tropical storm and hook a hard right and head NE as a Tropical Depression.
The “hook a hard right and head NE as a Tropical Depression” bothers me because that puts it on dead aim for Baja and according to my little SST (Sea Surface Temperature) map, warmer waters.
Well if it does make it to Baja that will be about a week away. So we play the waiting game in late October no less. Furthermore it looks like I’m the only forecaster in the region who has not brought the fat lady out of her dressing room. Let’s hope I’m wrong.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific basin and the ITCZ/Monsoon trough it appears to be not very active this morning with just a few thumpers working along 8N this morning.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where The West Coast will continue to experience clear skies today due to a high pressure system building along the California coast. Temperatures will range between the 50s and 60s in Washington, Oregon, and northern California, while temperatures in southern California, Nevada and Arizona will push into the 80s and 90s.
In southern California thick fog that has been hugging the coast for several days will become shallower today as high pressure builds over the southwest. This high will also bring warmer weather this weekend. On Monday a strong low from the north will bring cooler weather and a good chance of showers on Tuesday west of the mountains.
Looking over to the southwest a weak system will be exiting Arizona to the NE over the course of the day with clear and dry conditions in its wake for the weekend. Monday will see a change in the weather with breezy and cooler temperatures through the middle of the upcoming work week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence in general it looks like NW winds in the mid teens for today and tomorrow then light NE on Sunday.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: 16-18 NW today and tomorrow and around 10 on Sunday from the NE.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: The NW winds continue. Today and tomorrow 17-19 and Sunday around 10.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 14-17 today and tomorrow and around 10 on Sunday from the NE.
Puerto Escondido: 12-14 knots from the NE for the 3-day forecast period.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Low teens from the NE for the next 3 days.
La Paz: 12-15 today and tomorrow then around 10 on Sunday.
The East Cape: around 12 knots today from the NW, 17 tomorrow NW and then 10-12 on Sunday from the NE.
The Mexican Riviera: light winds mostly from the NW for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez has been cloud free again for the past 24 hours.
Looking now south to the west coast of Mexico where from around Manzanillo south it is overcast and from Zihuatanejo to Acapulco rain.
No sooner than the hurricane season ends theTehuantepeckers start up in the Gulf. This morning there is an early season storm with gale force winds with seas to 14 feet that will be lasting though Saturday then quickly diminish and pulse to around 25 knots each night through Tuesday night.
In our Tropical Kitchen this morning himicane Raymond has been plutoed to a tropical storm and is as of 2am this morning 303 miles west of Acapulco. Although the winds have diminished to around 65 knots the deep convection associated with Raymond has been expanding.
Atmospheric conditions may be more conductive to enable Raymond to re-intensify somewhat over the next few days and that is reflected in the official forecast. The intensification would be from around 50 knot winds to around 65 knot winds, still below cat 1 hurricane levels.
Raymond is forecast to turn NW in 4-5 days. Even though the models agree on the overall pattern there is considerable spread in the track guidance in the 3-5 day time frame. Probably get a better idea in a couple of days.
The good news is the storm is moving away from the mainland where it has brought torrential rains. The rains continue this morning in Acapulco with perhaps another inch expected over the next few days. The webcam image at Acapulco was showing light rain and small surf in front of the hotels this am. So far they have received over 7 inches of rain.
All watches and warnings have been discontinued for the coast of Mexico.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where high pressure continues to be the headliner. For the Pacific NW they can expect mostly cool and dry conditions though the weekend with dense fog along the coast.
Northern California in the low 70s along the coast and low 80s in the inland valleys.
In southern California that advertized weak low will be moving though the area today and tomorrow cooling things down around 10 degrees from yesterday. Early next week a significant cooling will occur on Monday and Tuesday along with a chance of showers mainly over and west of the mountains due to another low moving through. Gusterly winds in the deserts will accompany this system.
Looking now over to the southwest where a cooling trend will take place through Friday as a weak low moves out of California into Arizona. The White Mountains could see a few thunderbumpers through tomorrow morning. It will warm a bit this weekend then much colder temperatures are expected by Tuesday and Wednesday as a strong low system drops southward through the Great Basin.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on his side of the Fence it looks like very light winds in the Sea today picking up to the mid teens tomorrow and then high teens on Saturday.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: ENE today less than 10. NW the next two days in the mid teens.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: NW for the next 3 days. Light today around 18 tomorrow and 21 on Saturday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: mid teens today from the NE. Moderate again tomorrow from the NW and a bit less than 20 from the NW on Saturday.
Puerto Escondido: light southerlies today. Low teens from the NE for the next two days.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light westerly today, low NE tomorrow, and mid NW on Saturday.
The East Cape: NW for the 3-day forecast period. Light today, moderate tomorrow and around 17 on Saturday.
The Mexican Riviera: north of Cabo Corrienties mostly moderate NW winds for the 3-day forecast period. South of the cape mostly moderate SE or SW for the next 3 days.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that again this morning the Sea of Cortez is and has been free of any clouds for the past 24 hours.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and from Manzanillo north they are having Chamber of Commerce weather. To the south brother Raymond continues to rain havoc along the coast.
Himicane Raymond has continued to meander overnight while loosing strength. He is now a cat 1 storm with winds to only 75. At 3am this morning he was 92 miles West of Acapulco and 77 miles SW of Zihuatanejo. Manzanillo apparently is not being affected by the storm. The storm is forecast to start to move west sometime today and further Pluto to a tropical storm as it continues it’s track pretty much due west.
Winds have not been the issue with this very tight storm, even though it was a cat 3 storm once with 130 knot winds, it has been the torrential rains. I have seen videos of bridges being washed out and water a foot deep running down city streets. Hurricane warnings have been posted for about 140 miles of coastline. Mexican forecasters continue to say that this storm could produce “significant coastal flooding” and “large and destructive waves.” Emergency crews are being kept busy repairing bridges and roads.
This image is showing rain showers from Raymond extending all the way across Mexico into the Caribbean this morning.
Of Note: Here in Mulege we had a construction crew laying a concrete street beside the Mulegé river. All the sudden, they took off leaving the road half done. I found out yesterday that they were called back to the mainland to repair the roads destroyed by tropical storm Manuel last month. It looks like for our roadway it will be awhile before the crew returns to finish the job.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where high pressure is progged to remain in the western conus until the end of the month. It looks like a mild, not chilly Halloween this year for most of the west coast.
A rather thick fog bank hugs the coast in several spots from Seattle to San Diego this morning and that’s the only clouds I can see in this image.
In southern California, as advertized, a weak upper level low will slowly move across southern California today and tomorrow. This will bring some minor cooling and a gradually deepening of the marine layer. High pressure should return on Friday warming the southland back up to normal seasonal temperatures.
Looking now over to the southwest where this image is showing not a cloud in the state of Arizona this morning. That low I just mentioned will slowly lift through Arizona tomorrow resulting in a slight chance of showers and possibly the rumble of thunder in the White Mountains. Otherwise it will be dry and cool during the nights.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like today and tomorrow the Sea will see very moderate NE winds then mid to high teens on Friday from the NW.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: less than 10 today from the NE. Friday around 16 from the NW.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: light NW today and tomorrow and around 18 on Friday from the NW.
The Baja side of the central Sea: very moderate NE today and tomorrow and around 18 on Friday from the NW.
Puerto Escondido: light NE today. Light SE tomorrow. Moderate NE on Friday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light NE today. Light SW tomorrow. And around 10 knot winds from the north on Friday.
The East Cape: moderate NW today, light NE tomorrow, and moderate NW on Friday.
The Mexican Riviera: light mostly NW from Cabo Corrienties north. Manzanillo also light winds from the SE for the next 3 days.
Zihuatanejo is within the storm cone of himicane Raymond.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see the Sea has been cloud free for the past 24 hours. Fog along the west coast of the peninsula is patchy this morning. Yesterday it looked like solid fog around Turtle Bay but this morning much lighter.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and Himicane Raymond.
Brother Raymond is still a Major category 3 himicane and is still parked around 200 miles SW of Manzanillo. It has just meandered there for the past 24 hours. The eye highly visible yesterday morning has collapsed somewhat this morning but the strength has dropped just marginally. The forecast is for Raymond to continue to dump very heavy rain along the west coast of Mexico for at least another 24 hours before starting to move west still as a very powerful cat 2 himicane. Torrential rain is the term being used by Mexican forecasters.
Mexican forecasters are advising residents along the coast that flash flooding and mud slides are probable and to take necessary action to avoid being in those area prone to flooding and mud slides. Mexican authorities have rushed to deploy emergency crews and said they were considering ordering evacuations of low-lying areas. About 10,000 people already were living away from their homes a month after Manuel inundated whole neighborhoods and caused landslides that buried much of one village. It left behind drenched hillsides that posed serious landslide risks.
Hurricane watches and warnings are posted from just north of Acapulco to Lazaro Cardenas. A tropical storm warning is in effect for Acapulco. This is a major news story and it is all bad news.
That’s what is happening in our hood, and our neighbor’s hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where benign is the word being used by forecasters to describe the weather up north. A broad ridge of high pressure will continue to produce dry and mild conditions for the Western conus for at least this week.
There is good agreement in the models that the dry pattern will continue through the end of the month. If that verifies it will be the first time since 1980 that downtown San Francisco did not pick up any rainfall during the month of October.
In southern California a weak low system off the coast will move slowly inland through Thursday bringing just some slow cooling and deepening the marine layer. It is almost a non-event.
Looking now east to the southwest where a significant change in the weather is possible early next week, however in the meantime the only weather news is a chance of the rumble of thunder and a slight chance of showers in the White Mountains on Thursday. Otherwise cool nights and around average during the day.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like one more day of these moderate NW winds then the next two will be light and from the NE.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The Northern Sea: NW to 17 today then light NE for the next two days.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: they will continue to see NW winds for the 3-day forecast period. Around 19 today then moderate tomorrow and light on Thursday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: moderate NW today then light NE for the next two.
Puerto Escondido: light winds from the NE today and tomorrow then lighter winds from the SE on Thursday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands.
Much like Puerto Escondido with light to moderate NE today and tomorrow and light southerlies on Thursday. La Paz: mid teens today from the NW then light NE for the next two days.
The East Cape: strong to 20 from the NW today, moderate NW tomorrow and light northerlies on Thursday.
Mexican Riviera: north of Cabo Corrienties mostly light NW, Mazatlan light southerlies tomorrow and Thursday.
To the north of Cabo Corrienties himicane Raymond is pounding the coast with high winds and torrential rains from Acapulco to Lazaro Cárdenas. The reporting stations at Zihuatanejo and Manzanillo were not reporting this morning.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea has been clear of any clouds for the past 24 hours.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico we have himicane Raymond between Manzanillo and Acapulco this morning.
Might as well talk about him right now. Well, exactly 24 hours from the time we had invest 97E in our hood it has become a Category 3 himicane with gusts to 130 mph. He is currently 182 miles SW of Manzanillo. Yesterday he was headed for land but has done a “Crazy Ivan” and headed west before stalling this morning.
The tracking models are changing every 6 hours and the latest at 4:30 this morning had Raymond moving a bit closer to land today before heading west again. Regardless of whether this storm moves much closer to shore heavy rainfall will likely spread northward into south-central Mexico during the next couple of days bringing life-threatening flash flooding and mud slides. The states of Guerrero and Michoacán are already receiving heavy rain. The Mexican government has hurricane advisories out between Acapulco and Lazaro Cardena this morning. Mexico City is already seeing rain from this storm. Reporting stations from just south of Puerto Vallarta are reporting rain this morning.
The latest track has Raymond moving a couple hundred miles west by Wednesday morning. Don’t chisel that in stone. We know the track record of these forecast tracks this season.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where there the October weather is benign on the west coast. No nothing except heavy fog from Seattle, even Portland had heavy fog this morning, all the way to Turtle Bay.
There is a big honk’n low well out in the Pacific that could bring some weather into southern California later in the week but that is a bit iffy right now. So just sunshine and mild October days and cool nights.
Looking now over to the southwest where they are having clear cool nights with the days forecast to warm a bit for most of the week. There is still a chance on Thursday for some showers over the White Mountains but otherwise just pleasant Autumn weather.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like moderate NE or NW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light NE today and Wednesday and moderate to 17 tomorrow.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: will continue to see moderate to strong NW winds today and tomorrow then low teens on Wednesday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 13-17 mostly from the NE for the 3-day forecast period.
Puerto Escondido: low teens from the NE for the 3-day forecast period.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Light NE winds for the next 3 days. La Paz: mid teens for the 3-day forecast period mostly from the NW.
The East Cape: 17-21 today and tomorrow from the NW, a bit lighter on Wednesday.
Mexican Riviera: Cabo Corrienties north light to moderate mostly NW. South of the cape we have a cat 3 himicane very close to the coast between Lazaro Cardina and Acapulco that has 130 knot gusts. Take extreme caution if you are in this area. This is a butt ugly storm.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that again 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 from just south of Cabo Corrienties the weather is being influenced by a “Gonna-Be”. Solid cloud cover along with several thunderbumpers close to shore all the way south to around Zihuatanejo.
AT 5pm yesterday a National Hurricane Center advisory indicated that invest 97E could be forming as a Tropical Depression about 225 miles south of Acapulco.
Five hours later at around 10pm yesterday the National Hurricane Center advised that a Tropical Depression had formed.
At 3am this morning the Tropical Depression was upgraded to tropical storm Raymond, our 17th named storm of the year. It is progged to become a himicane within 48 hours, but with the speed of it’s development I would not be surprised if that happened sooner. From invest to tropical storm in about 11 hours.
Raymond has been honking along at around 15 mph and has traveled around 300 miles in the past 24 hours. He is currently 296 miles West of Manzanillo and 701 miles south of the cape.
Early model tracks have it slowing down to around 6 knots and heading toward the mainland until tomorrow. The models get a little sketchy then with most have it turning back to the west but hanging in the vicinity briefly as a himicane.
In the meantime there will be either a strong tropical storm or a himicane meandering near the SW coast of Mexico for the next several days. Heavy rainfall from this system will likely spread northward into south-central Mexico during the next several days giving cause to life-threatening flash flooding and mud slides.
The government has initially posted storm advisories along the coast but will most likely upgrade these as Raymond moves closer to shore and intensifies.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where not much has changed or will change for at least the first half of the week. High pressure will bring warm and dry conditions to most of the west coast today.
The only possible fly in the ointment is a large low I can see swirling out in the Pacific. It is progged to move into southern California late in the week however no rain is currently forecast for the southland this week, just a thickening of the marine layer.
Looking now over to the southwest where the strong high pressure over the Great Basin will shift east into the plains states by the middle of next week. This will bring a slight chance of showers and thunderbumpers across the White Mountains on Thursday. Otherwise dry conditions will prevail this week. So low humidity in the 18/20% ranges and chilly nights. Daytime highs will be near normal and warm a few degrees into next weekend.
That’s what is happening to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence in general it looks like very moderate winds today and Monday then picking up to the high teens on Tuesday.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: low teens from the NE today and Sunday the around 17 from the NW on Tuesday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: NW for the next 3 days. Today and Monday mid teens, Tuesday around 20.
The Baja side of the central Sea: low teens from the NW today. Low teens tomorrow from the NE then high teens on Tuesday from the NW again.
Puerto Escondido: Low teens from the NE for the 3-day forecast period.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Same thing Low teens from the NE for the 3-day forecast period.
La Paz: about the same but picking up to around 16 knots on Tuesday from the NW.
The East Cape: NW for the next 3 days. Today and tomorrow mid teens picking up to around 21 on Tuesday.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan to Cabo Corrienties mostly light NW. South of the cape all bets are off with Raymond in the hood. Interests from Zihuatanejo to Cabo Corrienties should prepare for the possibility of this storm making landfall. This could be an ugly storm!

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the skies have again been clear over Baja for the past 24 hours.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see a lot of thunderbumper activity west of the Gulf of Tehuantepec where that low popped up yesterday. I’ll talk about that in a moment.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific basin along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough I can see considerable activity along the zone this morning.
Looking back to the west coast of Mexico the coast is pretty much clear until you get down to around Zihuatanejo then I can see a lot of thunderbumper activity all along the coast south.
It’s a good thing I kept the fat lady sitting backstage for a few more days. Yesterday afternoon a low popped up SW of the Gulf of Tehuantepec. This morning it is 355 miles west of the Gulf and 1020 miles south of the cape. The National Hurricane Center is giving this a good chance of becoming our 17th named storm of the year, Raymond. The current track have it paralleling the west coast of Mexico at around 15 mph, that’s pretty fast, 360 miles a day. It won’t take long to reach the colder waters that are generally unfavorable for tropical development; however tropical storm Octave just came through this region and dumped a lot of water on Baja. So no guesses from me on this storm. I’ll keep the smiley face up on the tropical page just for luck though.
Of note: Yesterday I had two emails asking, “What’s the deal with the fat lady singing”? Well, it has nothing to do with some overweight singer
I know. In fact I don’t even know a fat singer. It ain't over till (or until) the fat lady sings is a colloquialism. It means that one should not presume to know the outcome of an event which is still in progress. The phrase is generally understood to be referencing the stereotypically overweight sopranos of Grand Opera, none of which I know.
So endith, “Fat lady singing 101”
That’s what is happening in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where high pressure is the headliner.
In the Great Northwest the high pressure will bring benign and rain-free weather through at least the middle of next week. It was foggy in Seattle this morning.
In northern California the Bay Area is also fogged in this morning. It should clear by mid morning as usual. The high pressure ridge will continue to produce dry and sunny conditions with seasonable temperatures in the 60s on the coast and 80s well inland.
In southern California they will continue to see near seasonal temperatures and dry weather through the middle of next week. I can see a low swirling out in the northern Pacific this morning that should arrive in California late in the week bringing some colder weather.
Looking now over to the southwest where there will be little day to day change in the weather through the next week. It will continue to be clear and dry with a slow warming trend today and tomorrow.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like we are going to see one more day of these moderately strong winds.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: NW today to around 18 knots, then low teens tomorrow from the NE.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: WNW for the 3-day forecast period. 21 today, 18 tomorrow then less than 10 on Monday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: NW today and tomorrow and NE on Monday. Today high teens, tomorrow mid teens and Monday low teens.
Puerto Escondido about the same for the 3-day forecast period.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. All from the NE for the next 3 days. Mid teens today, Low teens tomorrow and less than 10 on Monday.
The East Cape: NW today in the high teens, tomorrow north around 15 and Monday low teens from the north.
The Mexican Riviera: less than 10 for the entire Riviera mostly from the SW.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that yesterday there were a few whispys passing over the La Paz area with the last patches passing over early last nigh. This morning this image is showing the Sea to be clear.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see the coast is clear to the Tehuantepec where there is a small thumper working just off shore. The winds in the Tehuantepec will be in the low teens for the 3-day forecast period.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific basin I can see that the ITCZ/Monsoon trough is relatively inactive this morning with only a few small thunderbumpers working along the zone this morning.
I’m going to give it a few more days before shutting down the Tropical Kitchen for the season. So far this has been a mild year for hurricanes in our hood. Rain totals in central Baja have been well received by the ranchers. No damage to property that I’m aware of.
In a few more days the desert will bloom again. What a wonderful way to start the winter season.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where little change is expected along the entire west coast as it remains under a ridge of high pressure.
With the experimental fog seeing satellite I can see rather thick fog hugging the coast from Eureka to Crescent City this morning. Further south there is a broken fog bank from around San Diego to around Abreojos this morning with the heaviest marine layer in Turtle Bay and along the Laguna area.
Looking over to the southwest where this image is showing no clouds over Arizona this morning. The forecast is for clear and dry through early next week. It will remain chilly this morning but temperatures will slowly climb back up to near average this weekend.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the Sonoran coast will continue to see strong winds in the 18-21 knot range for today and tomorrow then mid teens on Sunday, the Baja side of the central Sea mostly moderate NW over the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: ballpark 20 knots today and tomorrow and low teens on Sunday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 18-21 for the 3-day forecast period from the NW.
The Baja side of the central Sea: mid teens from the NW for the next three days.
Puerto Escondido: mid teens from the NE for the next three days.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Low teens from the NE for the 3-day forecast period.
The East Cape: mid teens from mostly the NW for the next 3 days.
The Mexican Riviera: Light NW from Mazatlan to Cabo Corrienties to the 3-day forecast period. South of the cape light SW for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see there is still some whispys moving from post tropical low Priscilla towards the west cape and this image is showing a few passing over the La Paz area this morning. Otherwise I can’t see any clouds in the Sea this morning.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see some high clouds over Puerto Vallarta and that is it for any clouds all the way to South American this morning.
Not even a lot of activity along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough this morning.
Well I’m just about to close the Tropical Kitchen for the season. Priscilla is still out there as a remnant low. As I mentioned I can see a few whispys drifting from her toward the west cape of Baja. They probably won’t even be aware of them. I am probably the last hold-out; the bloggers at the cape have the fat lady singing. I’ll give it another week then close the kitchen for the season. I’ve stopped up-dating the Tropical Wave report on the Sonrisanet Tropical page about a week ago even though there are still a few Tropical Waves moving off Africa and crossing the Atlantic: there are two out there this morning, but like the past week none will make it to the pacific.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where there is nothing going on weather-wise due to the high pressure ridge in the Pacific and over the western conus this morning.
Temperature will creep up a bit both inland and near the coast. Fog is the only thing the weather folks are talking about up there and there is not much of that. This image is not showing any clouds over the west coast this morning.
In southern California the desert will be in the 80s and 90s and the coast in the 60s and 70s.
Looking over to the southwest where clear and dry conditions are expected though early next week. It will be a bit chilly this morning and tomorrow morning, actually damn chilly according to the forecast. This weekend could see the temperatures slowly climb back to near average.
That’s what is happening to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the Sonoran coast from Bahia Keno Nuevo to Los Mochas will be seeing winds a tad over 20 today. On the Baja coast a tad less than 20.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period, all from the NW.
The northern Sea: NW for the 3-day forecast period. Around 15 today, 19 tomorrow and around 17 on Saturday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: around 22 today and 20 knots Friday and Saturday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 19 today, 18 tomorrow and 17 on Saturday.
Puerto Escondido just to be different will see NE for the next 3 days all in the mid teens.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Moderate NE winds for the next 3 days.
The East Cape: will remain brisk with afternoon winds to 21 knots today, then mid teens for Friday and Saturday.
The Mexican Riviera: Where it looks like Jake will be leading the migration from the summer party grounds to the Mexican Riviera. I assume he will check the place out and if all is well, he’ll pass the word, “Y’all come”. The winds there for the next 3 days: mostly light NW from Mazatlan to Cabo Corrienties and light SW south of the cape.

Looking down into the Sea this morning with the 24 hour loop I can see tropical storm Octave making landfall just north of Mag Bay yesterday morning and then quickly moving across the peninsula. At 4am yesterday most of the heavy rain had already preceded the front and was in the Sea headed toward Sonora and eventually Texas late yesterday afternoon. .
This morning there are some remnant clouds that look a little thicker than whispys following in the wake of Octave crossing the peninsula around La Paz otherwise the skies are again clear over the Sea of Cortez this morning.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera where this image is showing what was earlier several thunderbumpers between Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo is now one solid high topped cell. They could be getting some serious wet under that cell. A bit further south around Zihuatanejo is a small cell half on land and half on shore. South of that the skies are pretty much clear to Central America this morning.
Looking in our Tropical Kitchen this morning the only thing on the burners is Tropical Depression Priscilla. She is well SW of the cape and as advertized is sort of meandering around out there slowly approaching colder waters where she will die.
Yesterday tropical storm Octave made landfall just north of Mag Bay will lots of wind that quickly dissipated. The rain clouds associated with this storm preceded the front across the peninsula and by mid morning the skies were starting to clear and by late afternoon most of the Sea had mostly clear skies.
Although this storm brought rain, heavy in some locations, I have not heard any reports of road closures, flooding or even toilets backing up. There are always rocks on the road following a storm, and when I went to town yesterday morning they were already cleaning them up.
In ten days central Baja will turn from a drab brown to brilliant green. It’s amazing to watch this transformation of the desert blooming after a rain.
Well, that’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where “benign weather” was used a lot by the forecasters in their forecasts along the west coast this morning. No storms on the horizon, just mild October weather. Not even any fog until you get to the San Diego area.
This image is however showing fog hugging the coast from the border to Mag Bay, some places rather thick, like around Turtle Bay, and other places just patchy.
Looking now over to the southwest where I can’t see any clouds near the Fence but north around Flagstaff there is some rather heavy cloud cover this morning. To the south, dry conditions will prevail across the southwest into early next week. It’s going to get chilly with some of the coldest temperatures of the season expected the next couple of nights especially tonight into tomorrow morning.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence in general the winds over the 3-day forecast period will be strong from the NW. They could be lighter at times due to the fluctuations of the gradient in the Sea. I normally only go out 3 days but right now it looks like we will have to wait until this weekend to see the moderate winds return.
So here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: NW for the next 3 days. Today and Friday 20 knots and tomorrow around 15.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: WNW for the 3-day forecast period. Today around 24 and 20 for Thursday and Friday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 20 knots today high teens for Thursday and Friday.
Puerto Escondido: mid teens from the NE for the 3-day forecast period.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Mid teens from the NE for the next 3 days.
The East Cape: NW for the 3-day forecast period. Today and Friday around 17 and tomorrow 21 knots.
The Mexican Riviera: Mostly light to moderate NW for the next 3 days.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see the moisture plume from Octave is spread out from the cape to the Bay of LA this morning. It looks like the entire region is experiencing rain this morning. This latest image is showing the storm center having some very high topped clouds and it looks like there is some thunderbumper activity between Todos Santos and Mag Bay this morning.
Looking south along the west coast of Mexico it looks to be pretty much clear all the way south into Central America this morning.
The Gulf of Tehuantepec is expected winds in the 25 knot ranges through this evening and back to the light ranges by tomorrow morning.
Very little activity in the ITCZ/Monsoon trough this morning.
There is however a lot activity in our Tropical Kitchen this morning. There are currently two tropical storms in our hood. Early this morning around 600 miles SW of the cape an area of disturbed weather was designated tropical storm Priscilla. She is forecast to sort of meander around in that general area, slowly moving into cooler waters over the next couple of days. Just some slight intensification today then the official forecast is for her to weaken to a Tropical Depression by Wednesday night, then a remnant low by Thursday night.
The other tropical storm, Octave, is 241 miles due west of the cape this morning and spreading rain over a good portion of the Baja peninsula and the Sea of Cortez. This image is showing rain as far north as Turtle Bay on the west coast and the Bay of LA on the west coast of the peninsula, and Puerto Panesco on the mainland side. The cloud plume extends NE across Sonora and pretty much blankets Texas this morning. She has just crossed over the 26ºc isotherm: south of which the environment is conducive for tropical development and north of this line the water is too cold for further development.
The current track has speeded up and moved a bit to the north over the past 24 hours and is now forecast to make landfall tomorrow afternoon around Scorpion Bay, San Juanico as a tropical depression.
Meantime Baja can expect steady rain and a good possibility of some thunderbumper activity in the cape region today.
No tropical storm advisories have been posted for the arrival of Octave on land tomorrow, but interests in that area could see some heavy rain.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where pretty much nothing is going on weather wise.
There is no rain forecast for the entire west coast today. Warming and dry is on most forecasts slates. Fire danger advisories are posted in many California locations this morning. Bad news: Low humidity. Good news: No winds.
Looking over to the southwest where this image is showing clear skies over the entire state this morning. They should see continued dry conditions with slightly below normal temperatures. A few weak systems will sweep through the region fro time to time this week and lead to periods of passing high clouds and some increased winds mainly over SE California and western Arizona.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on his side of the Fence rain today diminishing from the south to the north this evening as the storm moves north along the coast. Rain through Wednesday along the central and northern Sea.
Winds!!!!! I wish I had two models that agreed on the winds in the Sea for the next 3 days. I have to go with something so in general strong NW or NE winds for the next 3 days.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: NW for the next 3 days. Today mid teens, tomorrow low 20s and Wednesday high teens.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 21-24 from mostly the NW for the next 3 days.
The Baja side of the central Sea: mostly NE today then NW for the next two. Concepcion Bay to Puerto Escondido are forecast to see 30 winds this afternoon. The next two days like the rest of the central Sea ballpark around 20 knots.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. The San Lorenzo Channel high teens today from the SE. Tomorrow light SW and Wednesday moderate NE.
La Paz mostly light NE for the 3-day forecast period.
The East Cape: strong to around 20 today, 13-18 from the NW for the next two.
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 our 15th named storm of the year, Octave, is blanketing the southern Sea with clouds this morning. The southern crossing also has heavy cloud cover. Right now it looks like the cloud cover extends south as far as Santa Rosalia this morning. More on Octave in a minute.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera where Cabo Corrienties south looks clear along the coast to Acapulco where there is a nice thumper over it this morning.
Further south in the Gulf of Tehuantepec the remnants of a Tropical Wave over western Central America is forecast to bring in strong northerlies to the Gulf later this morning lasting until tomorrow night. They will be in the 20-25 knot ranges.
Now looking into our Tropical Kitchen this morning. Well, the waiting game is over. Last night invest 94E became depressed and 6 hours later it was upgraded to tropical storm Octave.
The consensus of the computer models is now for Octave, which is now 346 miles SW of the cape, to continue to march north then skirt well to the west of the cape tomorrow afternoon then on Tuesday swing toward the Baja peninsula and approach Mag Bay and colder waters on Wednesday morning as a post tropical remnant low. If this initial track were followed the low would pass over Concepcion Bay on Thursday. The cone of influence being a couple hundred miles north and south of Concepcion Bay.
Very interesting this storm is pretty much following the same track as Hurricane Paul did exactly one year ago. It doesn’t look like this system will intensify into a hurricane though. Max winds are forecast to be around 50 knots for the next couple of days.
So it looks like the southern Sea is already clouding up and it’s likely that we will see some rain as this system moves over the peninsula. I checked the web cam at one of the hotels at 5am and it showed bright sunshine, people lounging by the pool and small sail boats in the bay. The image said 5am on the 13th of October. I’ve discovered that they put these stored sunny day images up when they are having or expecting a storm so tourist won’t be influenced by the bad weather when booking reservations. Very clever these hotel managers!
Also in the Tropical Kitchen this morning there is a low SW of Octave that is producing an area of showers and thunderbumpers. The National Hurricane Center forecasters are giving this a slim chance of any further development.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where high pressure off the west coast is keeping the storm door well to the north, with no storms on the horizon. Oregon and all of California will see a slight warming trend over the weekend. Besides some low clouds and fog along the coast that’s it for the west coast this morning.
Looking now over to the southwest where a low will brush the Mohave desert and northern Arizona today leading to locally breezy conditions followed by minor cooling on Monday. They can expect dry and mild conditions through at least the end of the 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 strong southerlies today. Tomorrow moderate southerlies and on Tuesday light NE or perhaps SE.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: Strong to 18 knots today and then moderate NW on Monday and Tuesday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: SE today around 20. Tomorrow SE in the mid teens and Tuesday light NE.
The Baja side of the central Sea: SE today and tomorrow. Today around 20, tomorrow low teens then on Tuesday afternoon light NE.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. NE for the 3-day forecast period. 19-22 today, around 17 tomorrow and 14-15 on Tuesday.
The East Cape: light to moderate NE 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 of Cortez has had another 24 hours of pretty much cloudless skies. There has been a few fluffys here and there but in general clear skies.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera this morning there is quite a lot of thunderbumper activity from just south of Cabo Corrienties to around Zihuatanejo this morning.
The ITCZ/Monsoon trough continues to be quite active with numerous thunderbumper working along the zone.
Looking into our Tropical Kitchen this morning I can see that yesterday afternoon invest 94 took a hard left and is now moving west away from the coast. The National Hurricane Center has downgraded the potential for a hurricane in the next couple of days from 80% in yesterday’s forecast to 50% this morning. The latest computer generated tracks all, well almost all, show the track now moving more westerly and giving the cape a wide birth. Again don’t chisel this in stone. These tracks have been changing by the hour. So we play the watching game.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where a system is moving through the Great Northwest bringing rain to Seattle this morning.
The remainder of the West Coast can expect cool, dry conditions as a result of that cold front moving through on Wednesday and yesterday.
In southern California that upper low will slowly lose its influence on the region for a warmer day today. However temperatures overall will be below normal into the weekend. Next week under high pressure it will warm back up to above normal.
Looking now over to the southwest where that cold low that brought cold temperatures and a few scattered showers to the region will continue exiting to the east today. In its wake they can expect another day of below normal temperatures and sunny skies. Dry conditions with a slow warming trend are expected this weekend through at least the end of next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the Sea will be seeing winds in the high teens today, mid teens tomorrow and low teens on Sunday.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: a tad less than 20 today from the NW. light NE tomorrow and Moderate SE on Sunday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: NW for the next 3 days today in the high teens, and mid teens over the weekend.
The Baja side of the central Sea: NE for the 3-day forecast period. Today high teens, mid teens over the weekend.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light NW for the next 3 days.
The East Cape: moderate NW today and Saturday and light NE on Sunday.
The Mexican Riviera: mostly light SW or SE for the next 3 days.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that a few clouds passed over the far northern Sea as that cold front moved out of California during the night. This morning it looks like the entire Sea is again cloud free.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see a lot of cloudiness associated with Invest 94 around the Zihuatanejo area. The thunderbumpers and showers are still well off shore. In the past 24 hours the invest has moved NE and if this track continues it would hit Cabo Corrienties.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific basin and the ITCZ/Monsoon trough it is again very active this morning. Lots of thunderbumper activity all along the zone.
In our Tropical Kitchen this morning we have invest 94 which is moving north up the coast at around 10 mph. It is currently around 652 miles south of the cape and west of Zihuatanejo this morning. They are still bullish on this developing into a hurricane probably this weekend. The name will be Octave, another dumb name that will be repeated in 2019. The computer tracks right now look like spider webs with the majority have the storm either hitting the cape or skirting around to the west. Do not chisel these computer tracking forecasts in stone as there is currently no consensus as to the track. I just looked at another site and all the spider webs pointed west with none hitting the cape.
Interesting last year on October 14th Hurricane Paul was just west of the cape.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the storm door is open in the Great Northwest and I can see a nice low moving into the Seattle area that will be bringing rain today. They say it should clear up there this weekend.
In northern California that cold front that came through yesterday just brought cold and hardly a hint of any rain.
In southern California they did have rain. In this image I can see the front has moved out of California and is now moving across northern Arizona. After a few lingering showers this morning it will remain cool and cloudy in southern California today. Friday should bring a warming trend into the weekend.
Looking now over to the southwest where as that cold front passes to the north it will bring a chance of light showers and much cooler weather to the Tucson area today. Above 8000 feet they are expecting a couple inches of new snow. Tomorrow will see the start of a warming trend into the weekend.
That is what is happening to the north of us. Back on his side of the Fence in general we should be seeing moderate northerlies for the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light today and Saturday and around 17 from the NW tomorrow.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: NW for the next 3 days. Moderate today and tomorrow and light on Saturday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: NE for the next 3 days. Moderate today and tomorrow and then light on Saturday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Mostly light NE for the 3-day forecast period.
The East Cape: moderate mostly NE for the next 3 days.
The Mexican Riviera: with the exception of Manzanillo on Saturday which will see moderate southerlies, the rest light winds. North of Cabo Corrienties NW and south of Cabo Corrienties SE.

Looking down into the Sea this morning with the 24 hour loop it looks like the skies have been cloud free for the past 24 hours over the Sea of Cortez.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see some light thunderbumper action between Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo this morning: most of it off shore.
Further south to almost Acapulco the coast is clear. From just north of Acapulco to well into Central America it is thunderbumper city.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific basin and the ITCZ/Monsoon trough I can see that it is very active this morning.
Now looking in our Tropical Kitchen this morning. The smiley face I had put on the tropical page of the Sonrisanet website is gone this morning for good reason. It looks like we will be having an October Hurricane that will be affecting the Baja Peninsula. It is currently designated as Invest 94E.
The early prognosis is for it to become a tropical depression by this weekend and crank up to a hurricane shortly after that. The early computer generated tracks have it skirting the cape to the west as it moves WNW. We have seen these track change almost hourly this summer so don’t chisel this in stone.
Right now 94E is 302 miles SW of Acapulco around 900 miles south of the cape and moving WNW at around 10 mph.
Well let’s hope that the only excitement we see this month is Halloween. Remember Paul? He arrived here in el Burro cove with 50 mph winds on the 17th of October last year. Kicked big time butt in many locations including Mulegé.
OK, that’s what is going on in our hood this morning. Looking now north to the west coast of America where an Alaskan cold front is quickly moving down the coast today bringing rain, snow and wind to California.
In northern California as this storm will arrive from the NE it will be rather dry with little moisture. As it pushes south it will move closer to the coast and pick up moisture from the Pacific.
It will arrive in southern California today with enough moisture to bring measurable rainfall, much colder temperatures and strong winds.
Snow levels in the sierras from Lake Tahoe to the southern California mountains will be around 5000 feet with snow accumulations of half a foot or more in the higher elevations.
This is a fast mover and it should exit the southland late this evening or early tomorrow morning.
Looking now over to the southwest where the storm track will just brush the northern portion of Arizona early tomorrow morning. Around the Tucson area a blowing dust and wind advisory will be in effect from noon to 8 this evening. Sustained SW winds of 25-35 with gusts of 45-50 in some locations. Temperatures will be much cooler as the front passes. There is a slight chance of showers tomorrow and snow above 8500 feet. Dry conditions will return to the region on Friday with a gradual warming trend into the weekend.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like as that low swings out of California and into the Great Basin it will generate rather strong winds in the northern end of the Sea especially along the northern Sonoran coast. Following the frontal passage tomorrow the wind in the northern Sea should be light.
In general mostly moderate winds for the rest of the Sea for the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: San Felipe on the Baja side and Puerto Panesco on the Sonoran coast will see 24-32 knot SW winds this afternoon and light to moderate winds for the next two days.
The bay of La area: 21 today from the SE, light tomorrow from the E and then moderate NW winds of Friday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: moderate winds over the 3-day forecast period. Today from the SE tomorrow and Friday NE.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Mostly light winds for the 3-day forecast period. Today SE, Tomorrow NW and Friday NE.
The East Cape: light to moderate for the next 3 days. Today SE, tomorrow and Friday NE.
The Mexican Riviera: mostly light winds for the 3-day forecast period all with a western component.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that yesterday morning a thin band of whispys passed over the northern end of the Sea. These are the first clouds we have seen in over a week. It did not take long for them to pass over and the rest of the day the entire Sea was cloud free.
Looking now south to the west coast of Mexico where the coast is pretty much clear until you get to around Zihuatanejo. From there to Acapulco and the northwest corner of the Tehuantepec there are several large, high topped thunderbumpers pretty much merged into one large cell that extend perhaps a hundred miles west out into the Sea.
The Tehuantepec is clear of any clouds this morning however the winds there today will be in the low 20s and should diminish back to the low teens by tomorrow.
In our Tropical Kitchen this morning we still have tropical storm Norda. It is currently 993 miles SW of the cape and the latest forecast is for NO further development and for IT to continue on a westerly trek for at least one more day as a tropical storm then dissipate to a post tropical low later in the week. No danger to land from this system.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where a good sized cold low will start its march from British Columbia south into the Great Northwest today. It will initially move south over land and be rather dry and by central California the low will have moved closer to the coast and start picking up Pacific moisture.
Northern California will see light rain starting tomorrow in the Bay Area with the Sacramento valley probably just some cloudiness.
Central and southern California will start to see some heavier rain on Wednesday afternoon into Thursday. Along with the rain strong gusterly SW winds in the mountains and deserts with sustained winds of 20-30 with gusts to 50 mph and isolated gusts to 65 mph are possible.
Snow levels will lower to around 5000 feet from Lake Tahoe to the southern California mountains. The higher peaks could see about a half foot of new snow.
Looking now over to the southwest where that low will just brush the northern part of Arizona late Wednesday into Thursday. This will bring a chance of some rain at the lower elevations and snow above 9000 feet. Dry conditions will return Friday into the weekend with a gradual warming trend.
That is what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it’s that time of year when we have a couple of days of northerlies and a couple of days of southerlies until the end of the month. In general, the next two days will be moderate southerlies then moderate northerlies on Thursday.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: moderate southerlies today, strong tomorrow the moderate northerlies return on Thursday
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: light SE today, moderate SE tomorrow, and moderate NW on Thursday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: moderate NE today, moderate SE tomorrow and then return to the moderate NE on Thursday.
Puerto Escondido: moderate SE for the 3-day forecast period.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Mostly moderate SW today and tomorrow then light NW on Thursday.
The East Cape: light NE today, moderate SE tomorrow and moderate NE again on Thursday.
The Mexican Riviera: pretty much light to moderate SW over the 3-day forecast period.

While I was with an ambulance along with other members of the Concepcion Bay first response team at a local off-road race yesterday the region was windy and Sea of Cortez has been cloud free for the past 24 hours.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera the 24 hour loop is not showing any clouds along the coast and just a few small squalls off shore.
Moving up from the back burner in our Tropical Kitchen this morning invest 93E has developed into a tropical storm. This is our 14th named storm of the year and has been named Narda. It is well south and west of the cape and the models are in agreement that it will continue its track pretty much due west. Tomorrow through Wednesday Narda will probably briefly develop into a category 1 hurricane or perhaps a himicane.
You know those books that get when you are about to have your first child and it has all the possible names for your offspring. I don’t ever remember seeing Narda and I’ve never heard of a person named Narda. I don’t even know if it is a boy’s or girl’s name. Anyway I’m casting my vote for the dumbest storm name of the year to Narda. Ivo, our 9th named storm a close second. Anyway one should know if it’s a hurricane or a himicane.
I digress!
Well, that’s what is going on in our hood. So looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image I can see that a big honk’n low has moved out of the Gulf of Alaska and is now hugging the coast in northern British Columbia this morning. It is the next weather maker and the first major storm of the season for the entire west coast.
It is progged to move south and bring rain to the Great Northwest today and tomorrow. It will continue to slide down the coast bringing rain to the low lands and snow to the higher elevations Wednesday before exiting to the east on Thursday out of southern California.
This is a cold storm and temperatures will drop as much as 10 degree on Wednesday from today for most of California. Snow levels for both the northern and southern Sierras will be around 5000 feet. Skiing on Halloween, perhaps.
As this storm moves through southern California it will become gusterly in the deserts and mountains.
Looking now over to the southwest where that storm will bring cooler temperatures and a good chance of rain Wednesday and Thursday. In the meantime it will be warm and dry. Following the passing of this system the southwest will warm back up again into the weekend.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the NE wind pattern most of the Sea has been seeing for the past 5 days will see one more day then the winds will swing to the south Tuesday and Wednesday. So today the winds will be mostly light then in the moderate ranges for Tuesday and Wednesday.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light NE today then around 19 Tuesday and Wednesday from the SE.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: a tad less than 10 today from the NW and a tad more than 10 Tuesday and Wednesday from the SE.
The Baja side of the central Sea: low teen for the 3-day forecast period. NE today and SE the next two.
Puerto Escondido: low to mid teens from the south for the 3-day forecast period.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light winds from the east or NE today then mostly light SW for the next two days.
The East Cape: light northerlies today then light southerlies for the next two.
Mexican Riviera: mostly light SW for the 3-day forecast period.

Of note this morning: many of NOAA’s and the National Weather Service services are back on line again, however with a disclaimer.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see the Sea has been cloud free for the past 24 hours.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see there was a small thumper pop up around Cabo Corrienties and another in the Puerto Vallarta area early this morning and both have pretty much dissipated now. It looks like right now the entire west coast is free of any clouds this morning.
Still on the very back burner in our Tropical Kitchen this morning is invest 93E. It is well west of Manzanillo and well south of the cape and very slowly moving west. Satellite imagery is showing a moderate amount of convection around the low, however there only a very slim chance that this will develop any further. Probably slim to none.
That’s what is going on in our hood this morning. Looking now north to the west coast of America where in general it will be windy this weekend.
There is a big honk’n cold 1032 high that has settled over Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, northern Nevada, northern Utah and New Mexico this morning. The isobars are stacked closely from around the 4 Corners to the international Fence this morning with the bar along the Fence around 1012.
Looking now back to the top of this image and the Great Northwest where a series of rather weak wet systems will move through the area until Wednesday then a strong cold low will dip down from British Columbia and bring cold rain to coastal communities and inland valleys and snow down to around 5000 feet while pushing the high off to the east.
This weekend the that high will remain over the western conus and give cause to strong Santa Ana Winds in the La Basin that should abate by late tomorrow into Sunday. In the meantime a high wind watch remains in effect for the southland with winds in the 25-35 knot ranges with gusts between 50-60 mph.
In southern California the Santa Ana winds will bring hot and dry to the region along with the strong winds increasing the fire danger. The silver lining is that firefighting operations in California will not be affected by the government shutdown
The San Diego area will also be affected by the approaching storm system on Wednesday and could bring the first rain and mountain snow to southern California by late Wednesday.
Looking now over to the southwest first in the Yuma and lower Colorado River areas where wind advisories have been posted for sustained winds in the 20-25 mph ranges and gusts to 35. The advisories should be lifted by this evening.
Looking now over to the Tucson area where there was no mention of high winds in the forecast, however they did mention colder temperatures than yesterday and later in the week that cold wet low will move out of California and bring much colder temperatures and a good chance of rain to the region late next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like from San Felipe to Concepcion Bay will see ballpark 30K winds today, a bit less tomorrow and moderate winds on Monday.
Puerto Escondido south not much more than 20.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: 33 today, 28 tomorrow the light ENE winds on Monday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 34 today, 27 tomorrow and then light NW on Monday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: around 30 today, 23 tomorrow and then light ENE on Monday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. NW winds to 20 today, mid teens tomorrow and light SE on Monday.
The East Cape: 18-20 today and tomorrow from the NW then light NE on Monday.
The Mexican Riviera: light winds over the 3-day forecast period. Mazatlan light WSW for the next 3 days. Puerto Vallarta and Cabo Corrienties light NW and south of the cape light SW winds for the 3-day forecast period

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that yesterday from time to time we had scattered passing whispys and a few fluffys here and there from a moisture plume that stretched across the peninsula into Sonora. During the night it has moved off to the east and is now passing over Texas.
That leaves the Sea with no clouds that I can see.
Looking south along the Mexican Riviera and the west coast of Mexico I can’t see any clouds along the coast again this morning. Oh, there are a few small squalls off the coast but not close enough to shore to bring any rain to the region.
Still on the back burner in our Tropical Kitchen this morning is a weak low that continues to slowly edge west. There is very little chance of any further development from this low. The Navy has designated it as invest 93E so it’s still on somebody’s radar. I’ll continue to mention it as long as it remains an invest.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north where the big weather news is wind. Moving out of Oregon this morning is a big honk’n 1032 high. It will move into the Nevada plateau region of the Great Basin today and by tomorrow the entire basis will be around 1030.
In northern California High winds watches remain in effect for the California delta and the Sacramento Valley with sustained winds in the 20-30 mph ranges with gusts to 45mph.
In southern California they call these the Santa Ana winds and high wind watches will remain in effect through tomorrow afternoon. NE winds will increase this evening to 25-35 with gusts between 50 and 60 in some locations. The strongest winds are expected this morning and again tomorrow morning.
In extreme southern California the weather channel has a picture of a smiley face sun and a graphic of gentle winds. That’s the best I can do with what I’ve got here with the government shutting down the weather services.
Looking now over to the southwest where they too will be seeing high winds. Wind advisories will remain in effect until this evening for the Colorado River Valley with sustained winds in the 30 mph ranges, with gusts to 45 and 50. These strong winds are expected to continue all day and subside to below advisory levels this evening.
That’s what is going on the north side of the Fence. On this side of the Fence the northern and central Sea will be seeing strong winds and building seas as the weekend wears on. Seas building to 8-9 feet by tomorrow morning and stay in that state over the weekend. The strong winds will continue through the day on Sunday and finally start to relax on Sunday night and this wind event should be over by Sunrise on Monday.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: NW for the next 3 days. Today 27, tomorrow 31 and Sunday 26.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: WSW today in the mid teens. WNW tomorrow around 32 and Sunday 28.
The Baja side of the central Sea: starting in Bahia San Francisquito moderate winds today mostly from the NE. Tomorrow around 28 from the NW and Sunday the low 20s.
Puerto Escondido: light SE today, around 24 tomorrow from the north and Sunday a tad less than 20 also from the north.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light SE or SW today, 18-21 tomorrow from the NW and Sunday mid teens from the north.
The East Cape: light today from the SE then around 20 over the weekend from the NW.
The Mexican Riviera; Moderate winds. Mostly light SW for the 3-day forecast period.

I am really steamed this morning. I was going to say pissed but this is a family weather program. Of the 86 URLs that I bring up each morning, 43 were shut down due to the Republicans shutting down the government, and in particular NOAA.
The FCC is also shut down so I could really get away with some on the air “dung throwing” and get away with it.
But ney! There is probably a Republican out there that would toss it back so I better get on with the weather.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the skies again are clear over the Sea of Cortes.
Looking south the skies are also clear all along the west coast of Mexico.
Nothing going on out along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough or in our Tropical Kitchen this morning.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking north now to the west coast of America… ooops I can’t! The government has shut down the National Weather Service offices and they are all out applying for unemployment this morning. There is the weather channel but all they will give me is the temperatures for today so I have to pass on the weather to the north of us.
So that’s going to make this report rather short.
Back in our hood, fortunately we have the Weather Underground and I gave you their forecasts.
Wind-wise for the Sea of Cortez, the only fly in the ointment will be strong winds in the 25-30 knot ranges in the northern Sea on Friday. Other wise moderate winds for the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light to moderate southerlies today and tomorrow then around 25 on Friday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: low teens for the next 3 days. Today from the WNW, tomorrow southerlies and Friday back to the west.
The Baja side of the central Sea: ENE in the mid teens for the 3-day forecast period.
Puerto Escondido: Mid teens from the SE for the next 3 days.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light NE today then light SW for the next 2 days.
The East Cape: mid teens today from the NW. Tomorrow light from the NE and then of Friday moderate SE.
The Mexican Riviera: light to moderate NW winds north of Cabo Corrienties and light to moderate SW winds to the north of Cabo Corrienties.

Voice to Text

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea has had another 24 hours of pretty much cloudless skies.
In fact all of Baja, the Sea of Cortez, most of Mexico and the southwest United States have clear skies this morning.
Looking along the west coast of Mexico I can see a few squalls off shore west of Zihuatanejo this morning however the coast is pretty much clear with just a few what look like whispys here and there.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific basin I can see there is very little activity along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough this morning.
Again this morning there is nothing cooking in our Tropical Kitchen this morning and for the week ahead.
That’s what is going on in our hood this morning. Looking now north to where our weather influences will start to come from later this month. The summer months our weather comes from the south and that’s about to change.
In the very top of this image I can see a nice fat low moving out of the Gulf of Alaska and approaching the British Columbia coast.
Further south the storm door is open for the Great Northwest and for the past several days a series of fronts have been moving through. Another cold wet front will be moving inland today. This is a cold system and snow levels will drop to around 4,000 feet in the Cascades.
In northern California it looks like the jet over Oregon will keep the wet to the north of the California/Oregon border.
Northern California’s temperatures will dip a bit as the front to the north passes and will rebound later in the week. Low humidity and dry conditions later in the week will be giving cause to increasing fire danger in the north state.
In southern California thick fog blankets the southern coast this morning and the forecast is for this coastal fog to continue daily until Wednesday.
Inland they should see fair weather though Wednesday.
Then on Thursday a low from the Great Northwest will dig into the Great Basin and a high pressure ridge will build off the California coast. This gradient will bring on the Santa Ana winds with gusto. Wind gusts to 50 are expected in the Los Angeles area. Coupled with this low humidity and extremely dry fuel conditions will create extreme fire danger. A fire weather watch has been posted for much of Los Angles and Venture counties. Residents of SW California have been urged to pay very close attention to the latest National Weather Service statements and warnings on this developing weather situation.
For the San Diego area they too will continue to see identical weather through Wednesday. However they could actually see some drizzle Thursday morning. They are not expecting the high winds however the dry conditions and low humidity will be a fire concern Friday into the weekend.
Looking now over to the southwest where this image is showing clear skies. Warming temperatures and sunny skies are in the forecast until Thursday where the trough brushing by north of the area will bring some locally breezy condition and a few degrees of cooling into the weekend.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the northern Sea will see light southerlies over the 3-day forecast period and the rest of the Sea mostly light to moderate NE.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light to moderate SE for the next 3 days.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: I’m surprised I’m not getting hate mail from Guaymas. I have forecast moderate winds for the past two days and they have had 31 and 26 knots in the afternoon respectively. Hopefully I’ll have better luck today: Light Westerly today, Light NW tomorrow and light SW on Thursday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: moderate NE over the 3-day forecast period.
Puerto Escondido: moderate SE for the next 3 days.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light winds for the next 3 days. Today and tomorrow mostly NE then on Thursday light WSW.
The East Cape: light north today, moderate NW tomorrow and light NE on Thursday.
The Mexican Riviera: light to moderate NW winds north of Cabo Corrienties and light to moderate SW winds to the south of the cape for the 3-day forecast period.
