Tuesday, December 31, 2013 NEW YEARS EVE

Voice to Text

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see the high pressure off the west coast is keeping the Sea of Cortez free of any cloudiness.
To the south that nasty area of disturbed weather to the west of Cabo Corrienties this morning continues to send ragged, scattered bands of wet clouds toward the Mexican Riviera. This morning the plume is pretty much centered on Cabo Corrienties.
Interesting this plume is acting much like a winter jet in that the plume extends from just off shore, crosses Mexico, the Gulf of Mexico, passed over Florida and extends well out into the Atlantic Ocean off the east coast of the United States. The Jet stream analysis is showing the winter jet, aka the Pineapple Express still has not arrived in the Eastern Pacific basin this winter.
The reporting station in Puerto Vallarta reported 1.22 inches of rain yesterday.
Looking south to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where high pressure on the SW Gulf of Mexico is funneling gale force winds through the Chivela pass into the Gulf this morning. The winds should abate later this afternoon. Another wind event is progged to arrive Thursday through Saturday.
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 will be sending all the wet weather to the north keeping the Great Northwest green and wet and California dry. The models are consistent in showing they are not sure when the high will break down and it looks like the first couple of weeks next year will most likely remain dry for California.
Not much in the way of any changes in southern California with seasonally warm and dry in the forecast for the next week.
Looking over to the southwest where not much of a change in their weather is forecast either. There will be several weak systems moving through the Great Basin that will bring some cloudiness over the next couple of days along with some minor cooling, but that’s it.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence in general the Sea of Cortez should be seeing 18-20 knot winds for the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period. The predominate winds will all be from the NW.
The northern Sea: 16-18 for the 3-day forecast period.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 20 today then 17-18 for the next two days.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 20 today then around 18 for the next two days.
Puerto Escondido: NE winds in the 15-18 knot ranges for the 3-day forecast period.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. 13-16 for the next 3 days.
La Paz: 20 today from the NW then 15-18 from the NE for the next two.
The East Cape: 15-18 NW for the 3-day forecast period.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan half way to Mazatlan 16-20 for the next 3 days. The second half: light NW for the 3-day forecast period.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan 12 today NE, less than 10 tomorrow from the SW then around 13 NE on Thursday.
Puerto Vallarta: light NE for the next 3 days.
Cabo Corrienties: light SE today and tomorrow and light NW on Thursday.
Manzanillo: light SE today, light NE tomorrow and light NW on Thursday.
South of Manzanillo mostly light NW for the next 3 days.
As far as cloudiness and the chances of rain there are no indications that that moisture plume will dry up over the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that high pressure off the west coast continues to keep the skies clear over the Sea of Cortez.
Looking south a different picture. That area of disturbed weather to the west of the Mexican Riviera continues to send heavy bands of wet clouds toward the coast. Mazatlan looks to have clear skies but south to around Zihuatanejo heavy overcast with pretty much sold rain producing clouds. Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo have reported almost ¾ inch of rain in the past 24 hours.
Further south strong high pressure building southward into southern Mexico behind a cold front in the SW Gulf of Mexico will tighten the gradient through the Chivela pass and allow winds to reach minimal gale force in the Gulf tomorrow morning through Wednesday morning. The winds will weaken briefly during the day Wednesday then on Thursday another Tehuantepecker will persist into Saturday.
That’s what is gong on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where high pressure off the west coast is diverting all storm weather over the top into western Washington. They can expect to see a break in the weather next weekend however in the meantime mostly light rain in the low lands and snow in the Cascades.
In northern California no significant changes are forecast through the week. The upper ridge will remain near the west for most of the week continuing to produce a seemingly endless string of dry and mild days and clear and cool night.
The models are in agreement that the upper ridge will retrograde near the end of the week allowing a system in the Gulf of Alaska to slide SE into the western conus. However none of the models are now in agreement whether this will bring some much needed rain to northern California this year. Perhaps late in the week next year. We’ll see?
Yesterday I had an email asking what retrograde means. In weather speak retrograde means to go opposite from the normal west/east flow over the continental United States. If a high or low retrogrades it means the system is moving to the west.
OK, looking now to southern California where the Santa Ana winds have weakened some but will remain locally gusterly today. The winds combined with the very dry air mass over the region will keep critical fire danger in place today.
The system moving through the Great Northwest will bring some minor cooling this weekend but in the mean time they can expect to see above normal temperatures throughout the week.
Looking now over to the southwest where the tight gradient between the Fence and the Great Basin will be producing breezy to gusterly conditions especially in the afternoons hours this week. Temperatures today will be similar to those yesterday with a few degrees of warming tomorrow and a few more on Thursday. A minor cooling trend is on tap for next weekend.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the central Sea will be seeing one more day of strong winds. Tomorrow it looks like tomorrow and New Years day will see moderate winds around 20 knots or a bit less.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period. In general all the winds will be from the NW.
The northern Sea: 21 today. 17 tomorrow and 13 on New Years
Day.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 28 today and around 20 tomorrow and New Years Day.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 29 today and around 20 tomorrow and New Years Day.
Puerto Escondido: 26 today, around 20 tomorrow and 14 from the NE on New Years Day.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. 20 today, 13-15 tomorrow and New Years Day from the NE.
La Paz: 26 today, 20 tomorrow and around 15 on New Years Day from the NE.
The East Cape: 24 today, 21 tomorrow and 16 on New Years Day.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan half way should see around 22 today, then 18 tomorrow from the NE and 16 from the SE on New Years Day. The second half light NW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan today 17, 13 tomorrow from the NE and 11 on New Years Day from the NW.
Puerto Vallarta area: less than 10 for the 3-day forecast period.
Cabo Corrienties: around 12 today from the SE and then light NW for the next two days.
South of Cabo Corrienties: light NE today, light SE tomorrow and then light NE on New Years Day.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that a band of clouds came from the north yesterday afternoon bringing high cloudiness to the Sea. It has passed over most of the Sea by this morning south to around the San Lorenzo channel. It looks like it will completely pass over the peninsula by mid morning, with the southern crossing seeing just some high cloudiness.
Looking to the south I can see the area of disturbed weather to the west of Manzanillo continues to send ragged bands of wet clouds toward the west coast of Mexico, the heaviest around Manzanillo and Zihuatanejo this early this morning. It looks like the region will be clearing though this morning.
Looking further south to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where cool dense air behind a cold front in the Gulf of Mexico is funneling into the Gulf through the Chivela pass this morning. These winds are forecast to diminish by later this morning. The next Tehuantepecker is due in on Tuesday morning and should be short lived and last through Wednesday night.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image I can see that several wet systems will move through the Great Northwest this week with a stronger system progged to arrive later in the week.
In northern California it looks like the entire Sacramento valley is blanketed with fog this morning . Tulle fog is also socking in the California Delta.
The forecast is for clear skies and cool nights and gusterly afternoons in the north state all week. The medium range models indicate that the ridge over California will retrograde near the end of next week which will allow a system the Gulf of Alaska to drop southeast and possibly generate some rain in the north state by next weekend.
In southern California with high pressure building over the Great Basin and relatively low pressure in southern California this sets up the typical Santa Ana Wind Event through today and diminishing late this evening. This and low humidity continue to amplify the fire danger in southern California.
The southland is forecast to continue to enjoy unseasonably warm and dry weather through next week.
Looking now over to the southwest where as I mentioned a weak low is slowly moving out our Arizona today with clearing skies. In the wake there will be gusterly winds mostly in SW Arizona and SE California. Needles has a high wind advisory posted for today. The lower Colorado River Valley will also be seeing strong winds today.
Monday through the end of the week they should see clear skies, light winds and unseasonable warm afternoons. Temperatures in the lower deserts will be in the mid 70s.
That’s what is going in to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it does not look like the Sea of Cortez will enjoy a day like yesterday for the next week. Long range models are showing winds in the low to mid 20 in the forecast for the rest of the year into mid next week.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: 28 NW today, 23 tomorrow NW, and around 16 on Tuesday for the NW.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 21-25 from the NW for the 3-day forecast period.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 24 today NW, 29 tomorrow NW and around 21 on Tuesday from the NW.
Puerto Escondido: 13 today NE, 17 tomorrow NE and on Tuesday around 14 from the NW>
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Very light winds today from the NW, around 20 tomorrow from the NE and 16 on Tuesday from the NE.
La Paz: Very light NE today, around 24 tomorrow from the NW and around 20 from the NW on Tuesday.
East Cape: light NE today, around 21 tomorrow from the NW and Tuesday 20 from the NW.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan today light SE, tomorrow mid teens from the NW and Tuesday mid teens from the NE.
The Puerto Vallarta area: light southerlies today, light NW tomorrow and light NE on Tuesday.
Cabo Corrienties: low teens today from the SE, less than 10 tomorrow from the SW and then on Tuesday even light NE.
South of Cabo Corrienties mostly light WNW for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the skies remain clear over the Sea of Cortez this morning. This image is showing clouds to the north and south of the Sea.
To the south there is an area of disturbed weather due west of Manzanillo. Clouds from this area are moving with the west/east flow in the basin toward the west coast of Mexico providing cloud cover from around Puerto Vallarta south to Zihuatanejo this morning.
Within these ragged bands of clouds moving toward shore are scattered hot cells with high tops indicating they cloud be rain producers. When I animate this image it looks like several of these hot cells passed over the region last night. Manzanillo was reporting light rain at sunrise this morning. None of the other reporting stations reported any accumulations of rain.
Looking further south to the Gulf of Tehuantepec gale force winds are present along the east coast of Mexico in the SW Gulf of Mexico that are funneling through the Chivela pass into the Gulf of Tehuantepec this morning at near gale force. This pattern will change this morning allowing the winds in the Gulf to diminish.
The next short term wind event is expected Tuesday morning and lasting into early Thursday bringing gale force winds during that period.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking way north I had a request to check the weather in Summerland B.C. this morning. Well it is a bit cloudy and will warm up to around 30F today. It was 24F at sunrise.
Looking now south to the west coast of America where Seattle is getting wet this morning and the Cascades are seeing more snow.
It does not look like Oregon will see any of this weather.
In northern California tulle fog blankets the California delta. The bay area will be gusterly today with red flag fire warnings. The north state is forecast to remain seasonably warm and dry well into next week.
In southern California high pressure over the Nevada plateau and around 1019 in the LA basin has created typical Santa Ana wind conditions along with critical fire weather conditions.
A weak low will pass through the area today through Sunday bringing much cooler temperatures and cloudy skies.
Further south in the San Diego area the winds will not be as strong and they too will see overcast skies and cooler temperatures as that low moves through today. High pressure will fill in bringing dry and warmer weather next week.
Looking now over to the southwest where dry conditions and near normal temperatures will continue this weekend as that low moves through the region. High pressure will fill in the wake of the departing low with the dry weather and warming to just above normal levels next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like we will be getting a one day break from the strong winds.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: very light ESE today, around 25 tomorrow NW, and 20 on Monday from the NNW.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: NW today around 10, 22 tomorrow NW and 27 on Monday NW.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 10 today NE, 23 tomorrow NW and 28 on Monday from the NW.
Puerto Escondido: 10 today NE, 16 tomorrow NE and around 27 on Monday from the NW.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Around 10 over the weekend from the NE and 21 on Monday also NE.
La Paz: 10-12 over the weekend from the NE and then around 27 on Monday from the NW.
The East Cape: 12 over the weekend from the NE and then on Monday 25NW.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan today 12SE, tomorrow 9NE, and Monday 16NW. Cabo Corrienties,very light winds for the 3-day forecast period. Today east, tomorrow SW, and Monday NW. Cabo Corrienties and south less than 10 for the 3-day forecast period, most with a western component.
One final note for the locals: I don’t know how long the good ship Tequila Mockingbird will continue to have their Christmas lights up here in El Burro Cove, but this evening, with no wind, the reflections on the water should present some absolutely great photo opportunities after dark.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez has been cloud free for the past 24 hours.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera where out in the Pacific there is considerable cloudiness that is being deflected to the north and south by high pressure off the west coast. To the south these clouds are being steered by the west-east flow in the basin and are scooting around the high and making landfall between Puerto Vallarta and Zihuatanejo this morning. In this image I can see that some of these multi-level clouds are very thick with high tops indicating there is a chance of getting some rain from them.
They have continued to come ashore for the past 24 hours and it looks like this will continue all day.
To the south strong winds continue to funnel through the Chivela pass into the Gulf of Tehuantepec with models are indicating stronger winds today. They are then forecast to diminish gradually through Saturday. The models are also showing a strong Tehuantepecker setting up on Tuesday through Wednesday as a strong cold front moves across the western Gulf of Mexico.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where a low pressure system will approach the Great Northwest today ushering in rainy weather across western Washington and northwestern Oregon, while snow showers can be expected in the Cascades.
In northern California high pressure off the coast will keep the above mentioned low to the north. The airmass over northern California will remain unseasonably dry through the weekend and well into next week. as a footnote: These very dry conditions are raising fire weather concerns in the north state.
In southern California above normal temperatures will continue through next week with only slight cooling on Saturday. The gradient between the Nevada plateau and southern California will continue be the impetus for the gusterly winds in the afternoons.
Looking now over to the southwest where dry conditions, seasonable cool nights and mild daytime temperatures will continue into next week. A weak low will move through the region tomorrow night and Sunday with little fanfare, just some high clouds. Thereafter ridging will build back into next week with dry conditions continuing and temperatures warming to above normal levels.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the strong winds will continue today then the entire Sea will see light winds tomorrow then Sunday the strong winds will crank back up again but not quite as strong.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: 21 today NW, 7 tomorrow NE and back to around 21NW on Sunday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 23 today NW, 12 tomorrow NW and around 21 on Sunday from the NW.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 25 today NW. 13 tomorrow NE and Sunday around 21 from the NW.
Puerto Escondido: 23 today NW, 12-15 Saturday and Sunday from the NE.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. 17 today NE the 12-13 NE on Saturday and Sunday.
La Paz: 20 today NW then around 14 Saturday and Sunday.
East Cape: 17 today then 13-14 from the NW over the weekend.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan: south from Guaymas half way the winds will be ballpark 20 today and tomorrow and around 15 from the NW on Sunday. The second half mostly light NE winds.
The Mexican Riviera: light winds for the 3-day forecast period. Today NE, tomorrow SE and Sunday NE again. Puerto Vallarta light SE today then less than 10 from the NE over the weekend. Cabo Corrienties light SE over the 3-day forecast period. South of the cape mostly light SW breezes.

Voice to Text

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez remains free of any clouds this morning.
Looking now south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see that from around Mazatlan to Cabo Corrienties there are multi level clouds along the coast. It looks like several wet cells have moved through the area overnight with most of them to the east of the coastal cities this morning.
Further south I can see some fluffys around Zihuatanejo this morning but that’s it for weather along the coast.
In the Gulf of Tehuantepec this morning Salina Cruz reported 20-25 knot winds. The forecast is for the winds and seas to continue to diminish the rest of today through Friday then it looks like another Tehuantepecker will crank up Saturday morning.
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 continues to deflect any storms to the north.
In the Great Northwest high pressure will remain over western Washington through tonight. A weak front moving through British Columbia may brush the north coast and interior with a little light rain tonight. On Friday a cold front will pass through the area bringing some light rain as it passes to the east. High pressure will fill in the wake.
In northern California little change is expected today as high pressure remains parked over California.
A low was progged to move through the Great Northwest on Friday and split with a chunk of energy dipping south to along the California coast. Right now it looks like that will not happen.
So it looks like dry and sunny days will continue through the end of the year for the north state.
In southern California the pressure gradient between the Great Basin (1040) and around 1020 in the California bight will continue to bring gusterly winds to the southland today and probably through the end of the week.
Looking now over to the southwest where they can expect dry conditions, seasonably cool nights and mild daytime highs into the upcoming weekend and the end of the year.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like we will have two more days of strong winds before we see light to moderate winds this weekend.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: 26 today NW, 22 tomorrow NW and then around 10 from the NE on Saturday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 24 NW today and tomorrow and 17 NW on Saturday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 27-28 today and tomorrow from the NW and then around 16 from the NE on Saturday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands.
Today NW at 16, tomorrow 19 NE and Saturday 14 NE.
Puerto Escondido: 24-25 today and tomorrow from the NW and Saturday 15 NE.
La Paz: 19-21 today and tomorrow from the NE then around 15 from the NE on Saturday.
The East Cape: 17 NW today and tomorrow then 13 NW on Saturday.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan: half way 18-20 from the NE today and around 16 NE on Saturday. The second half light NW for the 3-day forecast period.
Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan today 10 from the E. tomorrow 14 SE and Saturday 11 from the east again.
Puerto Vallarta to Cabo Corrienties light SE today and tomorrow and light NE on Saturday. South of the cape mostly light SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.

Wednesday, December 25, 2013 CHRISTMAS DAY

Voice to Text

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez has been cloud free for the past 24 hours.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see that a few fluffys have been passing over the area from around Puerto Vallarta to Cabo Corrienties this morning. Most have moved inland by this time.
A bit further south around Manzanillo a broken, but heavier mix of fluffys and whispys have been passing over that region and it looks like they will see that continue today.
Further south in the Gulf of Tehuantepec this morning’s ASCAT pass showed 30-40 knot winds funneling into the Gulf of Tehuantepec through the Chivela pass. The forecast calls for the winds to abate to the 20-30 knot ranges into the weekend with minimal gale force winds during the overnight and early morning hours.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where a weak front over British Columbia will brush the coast of northern Washington tonight bringing a little light rain today through Friday. High pressure will fill in over the weekend.
In northern California that ridge of high pressure is forecast to remain anchored just off the west coast through the weekend and then well into next week.
The ridge will however weaken temporarily late this week and into the early part of the weekend as a trough moves through the Great Northwest. A piece of this energy is forecast to break off and drop south as a closed low near the California coast Friday night into early Saturday.
The dry weather with low humidity has also raised the concerns for fire danger in northern California.
In southern California the high pressure over the Great Basin and the bar in southern California around 1020 have given cause to strong winds to around 50 mph near the coastal foothills into tomorrow.
It should be a little cooler this weekend as that aforementioned low moves near the southern California coast.
No rain is in the forecast for the west coast through the end of the year.
Looking now over to the southwest where they will continue to see seasonable cool night and mild daytime highs into the weekend.
There does not see to be a consensus among the models what that low off the California coast will do this weekend. Some have it moving through the southwest and some have it passing through northern Baja. Either way there should not be enough moisture in the system to bring anything but some cloudiness as it passes.
Of note: there is high winds advisory posted today for the Lower Colorado River Valley from Bullhead City to south of Needles. North winds in the 25-35 knot ranges with gust to around 45 mph.
That’s what is happening to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the strong winds will continue through Friday with a brief day of light winds on Saturday then cranking back up again Sunday into early next week.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period. All wind directions from the NW.
The northern Sea: 30 today, 25 tomorrow and 20 on Friday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 23-25 for the 3-day forecast period.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 26-27 for the 3-day forecast period.
Puerto Escondido: 21 today then around 24 for the next 3 days.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. 14 today, 16 tomorrow and 18 on Friday.
La Paz: 18-20 for the 3-day forecast period.
The East Cape: around 18 knots for the 3-day forecast period.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan: Guaymas to around half way 21-25 for the next 3 days and the second half the mid to low teens.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan today and tomorrow light NW then on Friday around 15 from the SE.
Puerto Vallarta to Cabo Corrienties light NW and from the cape south mostly light SW.
I did note this morning that most of the daytime highs have gone up a degree or two. Not that you would notice it with the wind chill. The overnight lows have dipped a few degrees the past couple of mornings.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the skies are clear over the Sea of Cortez this morning.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see that around Manzanillo there has been some passing clouds. It looks like this morning that the heaviest have passed to the east and sunshine should be the order of the day for the entire west coast of Mexico today.
In the Gulf of Tehuantepec 50 knot winds were reported this morning. Storm force winds are expected to last through Christmas day then drop to gale force briefly before picking up again through Friday.
Seas will reach 18-20 feet by this morning.
That’s what is happening in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where high pressure off the west coast is keeping any storms well to the north of California. The Great Northwest will see sunshine through Christmas day then a weak front will bring a chance of showers Friday and Friday night. High pressure will rebuild over the area Saturday through the end of the year.
In northern California the high pressure will bring on a mild warming trend and clear skies are forecast until the end of the year.
In southern California the high pressure will dominate the weather through the New Years holiday. Generally mild and fair conditions will prevail each day as the offshore flow drives dry air toward the coast. The forecast is for slightly cooler conditions by the weekend as a weak upper low develops off shore. No rain is in the forecast for southern California throughout the week and into the new year.
Looking now over to the southwest where the high pressure will bring dry conditions and seasonable cool nights and mild daytime highs into next weekend.
Temperatures today will be a few degrees warmer than yesterday with temperatures warming each day through next weekend.
The high pressure is progged to weaken by next Monday in response to that low developing off the southern California coast.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence Santa will be bucking 20+ knot winds on his travels this evening. These strong NW winds are being forecast to last to the end of the week with Saturday right now looking like the first break for the northern and central Seas.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period. All from the NW.
The northern Sea: 21 today, 26 tomorrow and 23 on Thursday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 22 today, 25 tomorrow and 23 on Wednesday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 23 today, 27 tomorrow and 25 on Thursday.
Puerto Escondido: 18 today and around 21 tomorrow and Thursday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Mid teens from the north for the 3-day forecast period.
La Paz and the East Cape: high teens from the NW for the 3-day forecast period.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan: for the first half: 29 today, 23 tomorrow and low teens on Thursday. The second half light mostly NE winds for the 3-day forecast period.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan today light SW winds. Tomorrow NW to 17 and Thursday mid teens from the NW. Puerto Vallarta south mostly light NW winds for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning all the images I can bring up are showing the sky over Baja is clear this morning. I even used the old weatherman trick of looking outside before this broadcast.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera. I can see that the moisture plume to the west of Cabo Corrienties is still sending a broken, scattered, and a sometimes wet moisture plume toward the coast to as far south as Manzanillo this morning.
Further south the third Storm force wind event of the season is taking place in the Gulf of Tehuantepec. A Gale warning has been issued beginning this afternoon for the rest of the 3-day forecast period.
Winds will reach Gale force by this afternoon and reach storm intensity during the overnight hours with the added component of nocturnal drainage flow. Seas in the Gulf will rapidly build to 10 feet by this afternoon, to 15 feet by this evening, 17-19 feet during the night tonight and reaching as high as 18-20 feet by tomorrow morning. By Christmas day the Tehuantepecker should abate to just below Gale force.
That’s what is happening in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where with high pressure off the California coast pushing any storms to the north, the Great Northwest will be the only place on the west coast to have any rain today along with snow in the Cascades.
Northern California the weather will remain more or less unchanged through the week with daytime highs five to ten degrees above normal, which would be the low 30s overnight and around 65 during the days.
Beyond the weekend the extended outlook for northern California calls for dry and mild through the rest of the year with that strong ridge of high pressure just off shore through the first week in January.
In southern California the high pressure will continue to keep the southland dry and seasonally warm throughout the week.
Looking now over to the southwest where a dry weather pattern will remain in place this week as high pressure aloft stays positioned off the west coast. It’s 3 dog night cold around Bob DHL’s place in Herford it was 37 there this morning and expected to warm to around 50 today.
There is some model uncertainty about when the high off the west coast will break down. One of the models is showing a low approaching the central west coast this weekend will briefly weaken the high as the axis of the high moves inland. Probably have a better picture by tomorrow.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence if you are in the northern or central Sea check your ground tackle, the knots on the dingy and find a good thick book. The rest of the week will see strong NW winds.
The southern Sea today will see strong winds then tomorrow and Christmas day the winds will be in the mid teens.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period. All from the NW.
The northern Sea: 29 today, 20-22 for tomorrow and Christmas.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 27 today and 21-22 tomorrow and Christmas day.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 30-35 today and 22-23 tomorrow and Christmas day.
Puerto Escondido: 28 today then 18-19 tomorrow and Christmas day.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. 21 today then low teens for tomorrow and Christmas day.
La Paz: 26 today, mid teens tomorrow and Christmas day.
East Cape: 23 today, mid teens for tomorrow and Christmas Day.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan: Guaymas to half way mid 20s today and the mid teens for tomorrow and Christmas Day. The second half the low to mid teens for the 3-day forecast period.
Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan today 17, 10 tomorrow and 17 again on Christmas day. Puerto Vallarta south probably less than ten for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez has been cloud free for the past 24 hours with the exception of some isolated patches of fluffys hear and there.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico I can see a ragged moisture plume to the west of Cabo Corrienties sending light bands of mostly whispys over that region that will most likely continue all day. The 24 hour loop showed this plume very heavy yesterday and the reporting station at Puerto Vallarta reported.91 inches of rain there and the Nuevo Vallarta station reported 1.28 inches of rain.
Further south in the Gulf of Tehuantepec a gale force wind event is forecast to start tomorrow morning with winds building to 30-40 knots by tomorrow afternoon and up to 45 by tomorrow night with the possibility of some 50 knot gusts. Seas will build to around 17-18 feet by tomorrow night. This Tehuantepecker should last until sometime Christmas day.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where high pressure off the California west coast is keeping the storm track well to the north.
Both Portland and Seattle will have wet streets today then the Great Northwest will most likely see dry conditions for the rest of the week.
In northern California that ridge of high pressure will continue to deflect all storm systems well to the north and maintain dry conditions across the region with mostly sunny, mild and hazy days along with clear and cold nights.
Long range models are seeing no additional rain this year in northern California and San Francisco will see the driest calendar year on record.
Overnight temperatures in the inland valleys have been running in the mid 30s.
In southern California high pressure will blanket the region through late next week resulting in a warming trend of around 10 degrees above normal though Friday.
Looking now over to the southwest where this image is showing the skies clearing from west to east this morning and clear skies forecast for the rest of the day. The high pressure in the region will translate to warmer weather this coming week starting tomorrow.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the northern Sea will see moderate winds in the mid teens today to around San Francisquito bay. The rest of the Sea NW 20-24 today. Tomorrow the northern and central Sea the winds will crank up to the high 20s low 30s. Then for the rest of the week ballpark 20 knot winds in the afternoons.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period. All winds will be from the NW.
The northern Sea: around 15 today, 30 tomorrow and 20 on Tuesday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 21-25 for the next 3 days.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 24 today, around 30 tomorrow and back to around 22 on Tuesday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Around 21 today and tomorrow and low teens on Tuesday.
La Paz and the East Cape: 25 today and tomorrow and back to around 16 on Tuesday.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan, the first half of the passage 19-25. The second half in the mid to high teens.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan today and tomorrow 15-17 and then around 10 on Tuesday. Puerto Vallarta area light NW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
Cabo Corrienties around 15 this pm then light NW for tomorrow and Tuesday.
South of the cape mostly light SW winds.
Temperature-wise most locations showed a few degrees warmer this morning that yesterday and with high pressure and a warming trend forecast to the north of us we should also see a warming trend this week. That being said, the long range models are showing ballpark 20 knot winds in the afternoons for the better part of the week so the wind chill will negate some of this warming.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the cold front that moved through the Baja peninsula yesterday produced some cool temperatures, light showers and some very gusterly conditions, the strongest in the morning hours. During the night the Sea has cleared and across the board the morning’s lows are 10-12 degrees cooler than yesterday morning. Here in the cove it was 12 degrees cooler yesterday afternoon than the day before.
With winter officially beginning at 8:11 this morning and the sunrise temperature in my palapa the coldest since Valentines Day this year. I though it would be a prudent to put the wool winter liner in my speedO, bring out the fuzzy wooly Ugg Boots and don my favorite hoodie to do the weather in this morning.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico this morning I can see a ragged moisture plume passing over the Puerto Vallarta and Cabo Corrienties area this morning. It looks like the heaviest clouds have passed during the night with only scattered clouds left to the west in the plume.
Looking now into the Gulf of Tehuantepec where this weekend there will be a brief crossing window with winds in the very moderate ranges. Even with these moderate winds experienced gulf-crossers will tell you keep one foot on the shore; take the long route. Monday the next Tehuantepecker is due bringing winds to 45 knots by Monday evening and seas to 19 feet.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where building high pressure off the west coast will keep the storm track to the north of California over the weekend and into next week.
The Great Northwest will be seeing periods of rain and sun this weekend.
Northern California will be warming and dry over the weekend and through christmas.
Southern California will be dry and daytime highs will be slightly above normal.
Looking now over to the southwest where the exiting low result in clearing skies from west to east today. Temperatures will remain cool this weekend but a warming trend can be anticipated this coming week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the fence it looks like the weekend will be seeing pleasant weather, albeit a bit colder with light to moderate winds. Monday looks like day one of a two-day blow.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light southerlies today, high teens tomorrow from the NW then around 27 from the NW on Monday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: moderate SE today, around 23 tomorrow from the NW and then around 26 from the NW on Monday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: ESE today a bit less than 20. Around 25 tomorrow from the NW and 29 from the NW on Monday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. NE or NW for the 3-day forecast period. Today around 10 knots. Tomorrow and Monday 19-25.
The East Cape: moderate NE today. 21-23 from the NW for the next two days.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan: mid teens today from the NW then from Guaymas to about half way 20 knot NW winds for the next 2 days. For the rest of the passage light to moderate NW winds.
Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan south to Cabo Corrienties light to moderate NW winds. South of the cape light SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
And for those of you looking for something to celebrate this Saturday night. It is December 21st and I plan on sipping some grog with friends celebrating the first anniversary of the end the world according to the Mayan calendar.

Looking down into the Sea this morning this image is showing that cold front swinging though northern Baja this morning. It looks like the front will be swinging through the southern Baja and the central Sea later this morning and be in the cape region this afternoon.
This image is showing most of the rain in and on the leading edge of the front. It also looks like Sonora will receive the bulk of any rain associated with the cold front.
This cold front is forecast to dissipate by tomorrow morning with a frontal trough moving across Sonora late this evening. The NW winds behind the front will gradually diminish through tomorrow.
This cold front is not the only fly in the ointment this morning. There is an area of disturbed weather to the west of the cape that has been sending ragged plumes of moisture laden clouds over the cape region all night and it looks like that will continue today.
Looking now south and I can’t see any clouds along the west coast of Mexico at all this morning.
In the Gulf of Tehuantepec that long duration gale event has ended. The forecast is for light to moderate winds today and tomorrow. The next Tehuantepecker is due to crank up Sunday night into Monday and last into mid next week with winds reaching gale force again.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where there will be snow on the streets of Seattle and ice on the streets of Portland this morning.
Northern California is drying out under building high pressure.
Southern California will see most of the showers gone by this morning as that cold front slides south into Baja this morning. They could see some residual showers over the mountain this morning though. High pressure in filling in the wake of that departing cold front. It will begin a warming trend that should last into mid week.
Looking now over to the southwest where as that low moves through it will bring periods of valley rain and mountain snow into tomorrow. The weekend will be cold with dryer and warmer conditions due early next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence wind-wise I was unable to get a consensus among the three resources I use for the winds in the Sea so I’ve taken the middle road and here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: moderate NW today, light SW tomorrow and around 20 from the NW of Sunday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: strong to 23 today from the NW. Tomorrow light SE, then on Monday back around 20 from the NW.
The Baja side of the central Sea: around 23 today from the NW. mid teens tomorrow from the SE and Sunday the 20K winds return from the NW.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. 23-25 today from the west, light NE tomorrow and then around 18-19 knot winds on Sunday from the north.
The East Cape: mid to high teens for the 3-day forecast period all from the NW.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan today most of the passage will see 23-24 knot NW winds. Mid teens tomorrow and then back to around 20 on Sunday.
Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan today around 22 from the south. Tomorrow light SE and on Sunday moderate NW.
Puerto Vallarta to Cabo Corrienties light SW today, then light to moderate NW winds for the next two days.
South of the cape mostly light SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
And I just checked and none of the reporting stations in the Sea have reported any rain in the past 24 hours. However after looking outside: it looks like rain. There is an abundance of very dark bottomed clouds up there, so it looks like rain. It sort of smells like rain as well, so I’m thinking we will probably see some rain today.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the whispys that were off the west coast of the Baja peninsula yesterday morning took until mid afternoon to completely pass over the northern and central Sea. The Sea has been clear since then.
Looking now south to the west coast of Mexico first with the water vapor images and they show a light moist flow passing through the southern Sea of Cortez but dry conditions to the south. The IR images are showing no clouds along the coast to well into Central America.
In the Gulf of Tehuantepec the current wind event is winding down with 20-30 knot winds diminishing this morning and then light winds are forecast into Saturday evening. Sunday the next Tehuantepecker is due so there will only be a brief crossing opportunity.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the Great Northwest continues to see rain and snow just about every other day. Today is a snow day.
In northern California a weather maker low is currently near San Francisco this morning. It’s forecast to start its trek south this morning and there will be clear skies and gusterly conditions in its wake. High pressure will also be rapidly filling in.
The ski resorts in the Lake Tahoe area are only forecasting a few inches of new snow fro this system. This image is showing the clouds moving east out of the Tahoe area.
In southern California the mountains will be seeing almost a foot over 5000 feet Friday and Saturday. The coastal rain and mountain snow will begin overnight and become widespread today. Winter weather advisory will be effect today for the Grapevine and other mountain passes in southern California.
Showers should end by this evening in most areas west of the mountains but linger into tomorrow afternoon over the mountains and deserts. Fair and dry with a warming trend this weekend.
Looking now over to the southwest where that Pacific storm will bring gusterly winds this afternoon followed by periods of valley rain and mountain snow tonight into early Saturday. Cooler temperatures will also occur Friday through the weekend. Clearing from the west on Sunday with drier conditions and a warming trend early next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence I along with everyone else is wondering how this low and the associated cold front will affect Baja.
Well, it will be cold…er.
It will be windy but not a big-time wind-event. Just the northern Sea will see winds 20 plus knot winds. The rest in the moderate ranges over the 3-day forecast period.
Now the biggie; how far will the rain get down the peninsula? I brought out my old green Japanese fishing ball that subs for a crystal ball, wove the feather of an osprey over it, rattled the broken bones of a pelican’s head in a shot glass and stared deeply into the ball as the smoky haze from a freshly lit Nag Champa incense stick drifted over the ball. The image in the ball showed the front passing over the Baja peninsula overnight starting early this evening bringing a chance of rain during the night to as far south as Santa Rosalia and Concepcion Bay and ending early tomorrow. It also showed the northern and central Sonoran coast getting wet.
So there you have it. I’ve found this method is particularly accurate when none of the computer generated models are in agreement and the folks with the meteorology PhDs use terms like “lingering model uncertainty”.
Wind-wise, here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: around 22 today from the SW. Light tomorrow from the west and then on Saturday light SE.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: moderate SE today, around 17 tomorrow from the NW and then on Saturday light SE.
The Baja side of the central Sea: mid teens for the 3-day forecast period. Today from the south, tomorrow NW and then on Saturday SE.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light SW today, around 20 tomorrow from the NW then on Saturday light NE.
East Cape: mid teens for the next 3 days. Today SE, tomorrow NW and from the north on Saturday.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan: mid teens from the SE today, NW tomorrow and Saturday.
Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan: 15 today from the south. 20 knots tomorrow from the SW and then on Saturday 12 from the south.
Puerto Vallarta to Cabo Corrienties light winds for the 3-day forecast period. Today NW, tomorrow SW and Saturday NW again. South of the cape light mostly NW.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that several bands of mostly whispys passed over the northern and north-central Sea during the night. It looks like these scattered bands of high clouds will continue at least through this morning.
The southern Sea has been pretty much free of any cloudiness for the past 24 hours and that should continue today.
Looking now south to the west coast of Mexico where again this morning I can’t see any clouds until you get down around Central America.
In the Gulf of Tehuantepec gale conditions are expected to persist through this evening then diminish to just below advisory levels late tonight through tomorrow morning.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where another cold front will arrive from British Columbia today bringing more valley rain and snow to the Great Northwest.
This morning in northern California they saw a few sprinkles from a low off shore but sunshine will be the call for the rest of the day.
A strong upper level trough is progged to move into northern California this evening then move south along the California coast into southern California tomorrow while strengthening into an upper level low. It is forecast to track quickly SE into northern Baja by late tomorrow nigh and over Northwestern Mexico on Friday.
Meantime in southern California that low should arrive late this evening bringing rain and snow to around 3500 feet. Snow will probably impact travel on the Grapevine tomorrow.
Looking now over to the southwest where they can expect one more day of above normal temperatures before temperatures cool across the region for the rest of the week. The Pacific low will impact the desert southwest late tomorrow and Friday and continuing into the weekend bringing scattered showers and much cooler temperatures by Sunday.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence light to moderate southern winds will spread from the southern Sea to the central Sea tomorrow then crank up from the NW on Friday.
One of the bloggers in La Paz is forecasting rain for the entire Baja peninsula this weekend. That’s a bit far out for me, but at this point I’m not sure I’d disagree with him. I should have a better idea by tomorrow.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: today 14SE, tomorrow 20SW and Friday 13NW
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: Very light westerlies today. Low teens tomorrow from the SE then 24 knot NW on Friday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: mid teens today from the NE. mid teens tomorrow from the SE then around 21 on Friday from the NW.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Light SE today. Moderate SW tomorrow then around 20 from the SW on Friday.
La Paz: light NE today, moderate SW tomorrow and strong to 20 from the SW on Friday.
East Cape: mid teens today from the NW, tomorrow light SE and Friday mid teens from the NW.
The southern passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan: light SW today and tomorrow then 23-24 knot NW on Friday.
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.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that area of cloudiness west of the Baja peninsula is still sending bands of mostly whispys over the Sea of Cortez this morning. It looks we will continue to see these high cirrus all day. At times they will be thicker than a veil.
Looking now south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera. Again this morning the coast is clear all the way to Central America.
The Tehuantepecker is still brewing in the Gulf this morning. The storm force winds have abated to gale force this morning and are expected to last through sunrise on Thursday. Friday through the weekend should see very moderate winds in the Gulf. The Sea state downstream will drop from around 16 feet today to around 8 feet on Thursday.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the storm door is open for the Great Northwest with system after system bringing more rain and snow to the Cascades.
In northern California today smoke from the Big Sur fire is blanketing the coastal areas but has not reached the inland valleys yet.
Not much change in the weather until Wednesday when a low off the coast of Washington moves east and is absorbed by another trough of low pressure. This low will then drop south into northern California and the evolving storm will bring a return of the NW winds and gradually cooler temperatures to the end of the week. High pressure is forecast to return
next weekend.
In southern California will see one last warm day today under high pressure. Dense fog along the coast should not hamper the surfer dudes and dudettes as the surf is up in southern California for the next couple of days. Later in the week that system dropping south will bring showers Wednesday night through early Friday morning. It’s forecast to warm up next weekend.
Looking now over to the southwest where they can expect well above normal daytime temperatures today and tomorrow. A few locations will be near record highs today. Thursday a low will arrive bringing a good chance of valley rain and mountain snow into Friday night. It will also be much colder Friday and Saturday.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the central Sea will see NW winds today in the high teens. The southern Sea mid teens today swing to the south tomorrow.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: 17NW today, 13SE tomorrow. And 22 SW on Thursday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: around 20 today from the NW. less than 10 tomorrow from the NW and then on Thursday less than 10 from the SE.
The Baja side of the central Sea: around 20 today from the NW, 13 tomorrow from the NE and Thursday less than 10 from the SW.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Around 12-15k today from the North. Less than 10 tomorrow from the E and Thursday 12 from the SW.
East Cape: around 18 today from the NW then around 10 from the NE for the next two days.
The southern passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan: mid to high teens today from the NW. tomorrow moderate NW and Thursday light SW.
Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan to Cabo Corrienties light to moderate NW winds for the 3-day forecast period. south of the cape light SW winds.

The final Full Moon of 2013 occurs tonight, and along with it comes something special: it will be the most distant and visually smallest Full Moon of 2013. This comes just 4 days before the winter solstice which marks the beginning of Winter. Which means that tonight when you howl at the moon you will mostly likely be wearing your fuzzy wooly boots, sweat pants and a hoodie. Go for it!

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that bands of whispys have been passing over the Baja peninsula for most of the night. Behind these high clouds to the west is an area of disturbed weather that is being fed by moisture laden clouds moving off the ITCZ/Monsoon trough. We could start to see some of the multi-level clouds passing over the peninsula today, however it still should be a pretty good solar day.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera and the west coast of Mexico where again this morning there are no clouds all along the coast until Central America.
There is a strong Tehuantepecker brewing in the Gulf this morning. Storm force winds (40-50 knots) are expected to persist through mid morning then diminish to gale force by this afternoon. Gale conditions are expected to last until during the day on Wednesday then be in the 15-20 knot ranges by Thursday morning.
Down stream seas are running to 20 feet and may build a few more feet this evening.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image the storm train keeps bringing system after system into the Great Northwest. Today it’s rain in the low lands and more snow for the Cascades.
In northern California it remains cold and dry under high pressure.
In southern California I can see a low swirling around 850 miles west of LA. It is forecast to start to move east toward the coast and merge with a low that is dropping south out of the Great Northwest on Wednesday.
Most of the moisture will be wrung out of the system moving in from the Pacific and the inside slider dropping down from the north will be dry so there is only a slim chance of any rain. The main effect will be colder temperatures and gusterly conditions along the coast.
Looking now east to the southwest where high pressure will build in from the west and bring warmer temperatures to the area through Wednesday then the just mentioned system over southern California will move into Arizona bringing in increase in winds on Thursday and a chance of valley rain and mountain snow Thursday night into Friday.
Another system is progged to drop down into the southwest from the north next weekend.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the central Sea will continue to see winds in the 20K ranges trough tomorrow. The northern and southern Sea a bit less.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: around 20 knots NW today, 16NW tomorrow and then low teens on Wednesday from the SE.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 20-22 NW today and tomorrow and then less then 10 from the NW on Wednesday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 23 today NW, 20 tomorrow NW, then around 10 on Wednesday from the NE.
Puerto Escondido: 20 today NW, 15 tomorrow NE, and 10 on Wednesday from the SE.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands.
14 today NE, 11 tomorrow NE and then very light on Wednesday from the SE.
La Paz: 17 today NW, 14 tomorrow NW, and less than 10 on Wednesday from the NE.
East Cape: 16-17 today and tomorrow from the NW and then around 10 on Wednesday from the NW.
The southern passage north from Mazatlan to Guaymas: mid to upper teens from the NE from Guaymas to about half way for the 3-day forecast period. The second half light to moderate NW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan moderate NW winds for the next 3 days. Puerto Vallarta to Cabo Corrienties light NW winds for the next 3 days. South of the cape light SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez has been pretty much cloud free for the past 24 hours. That moisture plume has been plutoed to just a somewhat stationary area of cloudiness off the west coast of the Baja peninsula. Abundant sunshine is the call today for the Sea of Cortez. Albeit a bit windy and I’ll get to that in a minute.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico where again I can’t see any clouds along the coast until Central America this morning.
The only thing we have weather-wise in our hood is a Tehuantepecker building in the Gulf. Strong northerly winds are currently progressing south across the SW Gulf of Mexico and in association with a rapidly moving cold front will surge through the Chevila pass minimum gale force winds by sunrise this morning. By this afternoon they will build to storm force (40-50 knots) with seas to 21 feet. The storm conditions will continue through sunrise tomorrow then gale force winds of 35-45 throughout the afternoon. Wednesday the gradient will gradually weaken and the winds should quickly diminish to the 10-15 ranges by early Thursday night.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image I can see that folks in the Great Northwest will be needing an umbrella just about every other day next week. Today rain in the low lands and more snow to the pack in the Cascades.
In northern California it will be warm and dry for the first part of the week. Wednesday a cool weather system will moving into the north state bringing temperatures down around 10 degrees from today.
The system will start to drop south late Wednesday. In the wake of this departing low high pressure will rebuild over northern California and Nevada. This will result in very strong winds, especially in the bay area.
In Southern California warm and dry today. The 1040 high of the Nevada plateau and 1024 in southern California will produce a classic Santa Ana wind event today into the LA basin and to a lesser degree the San Diego area into tomorrow.
Cooler temperatures will develop Tuesday and Wednesday as low pressure moves inland across southern California. Thursday that low in northern will have dropped into southern California as a closed low bringing much colder air a slight chance of rain to the southland.
High pressure moving in from the Pacific will build inland across all of California later next week resulting in a warming trend next weekend.
Looking now over to the southwest where high pressure will build in from the west and bring warmer temperatures to the area through Wednesday. Thursday a cold front will drop in from the north bringing much colder temperatures and a chance of valley rain and mountain snow Thursday night into Friday.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like this strong wind event will last into the early morning hours tomorrow then the next couple of days the Sea will be seeing ballpark 17-20 knot winds.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period. All winds from the NW.
The northern Sea: 30 today, 19 tomorrow. And 12 on Tuesday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 25 today and then around 20 from the next two.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 30 today then around 20 for the next two.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. 20 from the NE today, 12-14 from the NE for Monday and Tuesday.
La Paz: 24 NW today, 15-17 NW for the next two days.
East Cape: 18-22 for the 3-day forecast period.
The southern passage north from Mazatlan to Guaymas.17-20 to about half way. Then low to mid teens from the second half for the 3-day forecast period.
Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan to Cabo Corrienties mid teens from the NW fro the 3-day forecast period. South of Cabo Corrienties mostly light SW winds.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see what I have been referring to as “The Moisture Plume” is now a bit less “plumie” and more a general area of cloudiness that has emigrated from the ITCZ/Monsoon trough. This general area of multi-level cloudiness is still spread out off shore the length of Baja however this morning much like yesterday mostly whispys are passing over the peninsula into the Sea. The exception is in the cape region where a few scattered bands of thicker clouds have been passing over during the night.
It looks to me that during the day today the Sea will be seeing a mix of upper-lever whispys and some lower-lever fluffys passing over from time to time.
Looking now south to the west coast of Mexico where I can’t see a cloud along the coast until Panama.
Tis the Tehuantepecker season and in the Gulf this morning they will be seeing 20-25 knot winds that will be diminishing to 5-10 by this evening with little change expected until around midnight when northerlies will start honk’n through the Chivela pass reaching gale force by sunrise Sunday. They could reach almost storm force during the day Sunday with seas to 22 feet. They will finally starting to diminish by Monday night with minimal gale force winds lasting through late Tuesday night.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where another wet cold system is moving through Washington bringing more snow to the Cascades this morning.
Northern California under high pressure it is cold and dry this morning.
There is pretty good model agreement for a cold frontal passage by Thursday. This will be another inside slider without much moisture. Main impact will be cooler temperatures and gusterly north winds.
In southern California it will be dry and locally windy today. The weekend promises warmer temperatures as high pressure builds across the region. Mid week a low is progged to drop in from the northeast cooling things back down and bringing a slight chance of rain on Thursday, then a warm-up into the weekend.
Looking over to the southwest where Lake Havasu has high winds advisories posted on the lake this morning.
In the Tucson area they will see near normal temperatures today followed by warmer temperatures into the middle of next week.
In This image I can see a tight 980 low lurking in the Gulf of Alaska this morning. This system is progged to drop down through the Great Basin next Thursday and bring valley rain and mountain snow into Friday.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it will be a cold gusterly weekend.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period. All winds from the NW.
The northern Sea: 32 today, 28 Sunday and 18 Monday
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 33 today, 25 tomorrow and 20 on Monday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 36 today, 29 tomorrow. And 21 on Monday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. 23 today, 18 tomorrow and 13 on Monday.
La Paz: 30 today, 23 tomorrow, and 16 on Monday.
East Cape: 29 today, 22 tomorrow and 18 on Monday.
The Sonoran passage the models are showing the mid teens for the passage over the weekend picking to around 20 on Monday.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan today 24, tomorrow 18 and Monday 12. Puerto Vallarta to Cabo Corrienties mid teens today, then light NW winds on Sunday and Monday. South of Cabo Corrienties mostly light SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that moisture plume is still with us albeit not quite as robust. The plume, in general, is being steered by a short weak jet that appears to be swinging a bit to the south this morning. The plume is very wide and broken this morning, stretching the length of Baja. This morning the skies look clear over the northern Sea to the northern crossing and whispys south of that to the cape. Behind it, to the west, it looks like there will be periods of sun, patches of dark bottomed clouds and periods of whispys moving across today.
Looking to the south to the west coast of Mexico where there is some cloudiness between Zihuatanejo and Acapulco and some thunderbumper activity in the Gulf of Tehuantepec this morning.
Gale force winds will continue through sunrise this morning in the Tehuantepec and quickly diminish below gale force by noon. Today should see 20-25 knot winds with this evening becoming light.
The northern flow will crank up again late Saturday night increasing to minimal gale force of 35-45 knots on Sunday night and persisting through sunrise on Tuesday.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the Great Northwest is cold, freezing cold. A system moving through today will bring more snow to the Cascades and freezing rain to Portland.
In extreme northern California very cold rain and then pretty much dry from the Bay Area south. No snow is forecast over the weekend for the Tahoe area.
In southern California a fast moving “inside slider” low will move through the region today bringing cooler temperatures to the southland today.
Tonight through the weekend the gradient will turn toward the coast with a thermal trof setting up along the California coast giving cause to gusterly conditions to around 55 mph in the mountains and foothills. In general the southland should see a slow warming trend starting early next week.
Looking now over to the southwest where a fast moving low will be moving through the southwest today will be bringing valley rain and mountain snow early today with most of it to the east along the New Mexico border. After slightly cooler temperatures today and Saturday they can expect a warm-up and dry conditions from Sunday through early next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence today will be the “lull before the storm”. Brisk winds in the low 20s for most locations today in the central and southern seas.
The weekend will see a brief two-day wind event with the strongest winds tomorrow. The bar over the Great Basin will be in the 1035-1040 ranges with closely stacked isobars between there and the cape region which will see bar reading in the 1014 ranges. This gradient will justify the 30+ knot winds forecast for the weekend.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: will see light NE today, 32 NW tomorrow and 27NW on Sunday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: today NW around 22, Tomorrow 32NW and Sunday 25NW.
The Baja side of the central Sea including Puerto Escondido: NW for the 3-day forecast period. Today 22, tomorrow 35, and Sunday 27.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands.
18NE today, 23NW tomorrow, 19NW on Sunday.
La Paz: all NW, 23 today, 31 tomorrow and 24 on Sunday.
The East Cape: all NW. 25 today, 29 tomorrow, and 23 on Sunday.
The southern passage north from Mazatlan to Guaymas: strong winds for the 3-day forecast period to about half way. Today 22-24, tomorrow 28-32 and Sunday 21-25. The rest of the passage mostly high teens for the 3-day forecast period.
Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan today and tomorrow 24-26NW, Sunday around 16. Puerto Vallarta mid teens from the NW for the 3-day forecast period. Cabo Corrienties about the same thing with very light winds on Sunday. South of Cabo Corrienties mostly light SW winds for the next 3 days.

I'M BACK FROM THE PLANET ZOE

Voice to Text

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that a broad wet moisture plume originated along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough around 150W and reaching out toward Baja. Jet stream analysis is showing that within the plume is a short rather weak jet, not the powerful winter jet that originates in the western tropics during the winter months, which by-the-way has not made an appearance so far this winter season.
Will we see some showers, sprinkles or light rain from this plume? Yep, depending on where you are. We have already had a few sprinkles this morning here in the cove. The cloud coverage is from the northern crossing south to the cape. Within the plume there are stringy bands of rather wet cells, some rather weak and others that look like rain producers.
Will the plume be over the Sea of Cortez for another 24 hours? Yep again. I’m think’n; Bad time to plan a picnic.
Looking now south along the west coast of Mexico where I can see a few clouds around the coast just south of Cabo Corrienties, but that is it for the west coast.
Further south there is a good chance of a Tehuantepecker around mid next week. More on that as the event gets closer.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image I can see off shore moisture moving ashore bringing rain and snow to Washington, Oregon and extreme northern California this morning.
Northern California will be cold last night with lows generally above freezing in all areas. So it looks last night is the first night without a freeze warning since last Friday night’s rainfall. By this weekend the models build a strong ridge of high pressure from the Pacific that will slowly spread eastward through early next week. This could produce some record breading warmth by early next week. That being said many northern California cities only see highs in the 70s in mid December.
Looking to the south where there is a weak low just west of the international border circulating some clouds and very light showers and sprinkles in the San Diego area this morning. It will be slightly cooler over the region as a low moves inland. On Friday a colder front will rapidly moving through the area followed by gusterly winds and dry conditions. As high pressure fills in warmer weather is expected early next week.
Looking now over to the southwest where low pressure moving through Arizona will bring a chance of valley rain and mountains snow to the southwest today into early tomorrow. Right now it looks like most will be east of Tucson. The Tucson area should see slightly cooler temperatures today and tomorrow with warmer temperatures on tap for the weekend and early next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it sort of depends on where you are. The northern Sea should see abundant sunshine, light to moderate NE winds today and tomorrow.
The rest of the Sea overcast skies with chances of light rain with NW winds in the 18-20 knot ranges for today and tomorrow.
This Saturday, much like last Saturday, will see the start of a two day blow with winds ballpark around 30 knots.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: 10-15 today and tomorrow from the NE. Saturday 29 knot NW.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 20 knot today and tomorrow and around 30 on Saturday all from the NW.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 16-19 today and tomorrow and around 34 on Saturday, all from the NW.
Puerto Escondido: 15 today, NE. 22 tomorrow NW and around 30 on Saturday from the NW.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. 14-17 today and tomorrow from the NE and around 23 on Saturday from the NW.
La Paz: 20 today, 23 tomorrow. And 29 on Saturday all from the NW.
The East Cape; 24-28 for the next 3 days all from the NW
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan will see 23-25 from the NW for the 3-day forecast period. Puerto Vallarta to Cabo Corrienties light NW, south of the cape light SW for the next 3 days.
And finally the Sonoran passage: All NW. Guaymas to half way: mid to high teens today, around 22 tomorrow. And 28 on sat.
Half way to Mazatlan: 22-25 for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see a few fluffys around the Sea this morning but in general the skies look to be clear.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico the coast is clear all the way south to San Salvador this morning.
The only weather on Mexico’s west coast is in the Gulf of Tehuantepec where winds hooting through the Chivela Pass are creating gale force conditions in the Gulf this morning. Downstream about 90 miles satellite images are showing 11 ft seas. This is day two of this mini-pecker and the winds and Sea state should subside by this evening.
Late Tuesday or early Wednesday morning a stronger front will push though the Gulf of Mexico creating the next wind-event for the Gulf of Tehuantepec. Winds should reach gale force by Wednesday evening.
That’s what’s going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America high pressure is starting to build along the west coast this morning. In the meantime Seattle will have the coldest morning since November 2010. They will be flirting with single digit temperatures in many locations this am.
The storm door is open and the Great Northwest will be seeing brief periods of sunshine before the next storms arrive mid week.
In northern California a hard freeze warning remains in effect for the Sacramento Valley this morning until 8am tomorrow morning. Temperatures will be in the mid teens to upper 20s.
In southern California they can expect another round of cold temperatures in the wake of the passing cold front. The southland should start to see a warming trend around mid week.
Looking now over to the southwest where a large cold low pressure system will continue to circulate across the western conus through early next week. There is a weak disturbance moving across Arizona this morning and will continue to produce a chance of showers and light mountain snow through this morning. Another system is due in this evening bringing another chance of mountain snow and valley rain before finally starting to warm up later in the week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the winds today will continue to be very pleasant in the very moderate ranges.
Starting tomorrow morning the winds will start building first in the northern Sea then extending down the Sea into Tuesday when we should see the strongest winds. Late Wednesday afternoon the winds should start to abate.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: NE today at 15. Tomorrow 32NW and Tuesday 25 NW.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: less than 10 today from the W. Tomorrow 25NW and Tuesday 28NW.
The Baja side of the central Sea: light NE today. 27 tomorrow from the NW and 30 from the NW on Tuesday.
Puerto Escondido today: 10SE, tomorrow 21NE, Tuesday 27NW
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Very light today from the NE. around 15 tomorrow and 20 tomorrow again from the NE.
La Paz: Light NW today, 16 tomorrow from the NE, and then on Tuesday 25 from the NW.
The East Cape: 13-15 today and tomorrow from the NW. Tuesday 24 from the NW.
The Sonoran passage north to south.
Guaymas to half way: Moderate winds to 15 today, 19 tomorrow and 24 on Tuesday from the NW.
Three quarters the way to Mazatlan 19-23 from the NW for the next 3 days. Around Mazatlan 19 today from the NW then 16-19 from the NE for Monday and Tuesday.
Mexican Riviera: Puerto Vallarta to Cabo Corrienties light NW for the 3-day forecast period. Cabo Corrienties south light SW for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see light moisture plume supported by a short weak jet moving off the ITCZ/Monsoon trough this morning and taking aim on central Baja this morning and it looks like the plume is swinging south so later this morning the mostly whispys in the plume will be over the southern Sea. I said mostly whispys; this image is showing some multi-level clouds in the plume, so add some fluffys to the mix along with periods of sun.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico where I can’t see any clouds until around Panama this morning.
A cold front moving through the western Gulf of Mexico will give cause to gale force winds funneling through the Chivela pass later today into the Gulf of Tehuantepec. This will be a mini-pecker with the winds diminishing by tomorrow night.
A full blown Tehuantepecker is due Wednesday into Thursday.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where a robust cold front is centered over Lake Tahoe this morning. As it moves south down the coast it will be bringing rain and snow down to the coastal communities.
In Portland the combination of strong winds and cold temperatures will result in wind chill values ranging from 10 below zero to 10 above zero this morning.
Eureka California is forecast to have snow this afternoon.
Storm warnings have been posted for lower elevations of the Sierras that are normally reserved for the mountain passes. Heavy snow was expected all night with more snow forecast for today with snow accumulations down to around 1000 feet in the sierra foothills as well as the hills in the bay area this morning.
In southern California that low will move through southern California through tonight. It will bring rain showers west of the mountains and snow and gusterly conditions in the mountains and deserts.
Looking now over to the southwest where it should be dry and cold today with the chance of valley rain and mountain snow mainly NE of Tucson tonight and tomorrow.
The forecast is for dry and a warming trend for the southwest starting early next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like a pleasant weekend then a two-day honk’n “norther” will arrive on Monday with ballpark 30 knot winds for the Sea.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light SW today. Around 17 tomorrow from the NW and 30 knot NW winds on tap for Monday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: NW for the next 3 days. Today and tomorrow around 12 and Sunday ballpark 26.
The Baja side of the central Sea: mid teens today and tomorrow from the NE and then 26 knot NW on Monday
Puerto Escondido: light NE today. Light SE tomorrow then around 21 on Monday from the NE.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Light NE today and tomorrow and then around 14 on Monday from the NE as well.
La Paz: mid teens today from the NE, tomorrow light NW and Monday 15 NW
The East Cape: NE winds in the mid teens for the next 3 days.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan will see the high teens today and tomorrow from the NW and Monday around 14 from the NW.
The Puerto Vallarta to Cabo Corrienties area: light NW winds for the 3-day forecast period. To the south to Cabo Corrienties light mostly SW winds.
And New this morning, the Sonoran Passage from Guaymas to Mazatlan:
The first half starting at Guaymas: mid teens over the weekend and 20-26 on Monday. Second half: light NW today increasing to around 19 at Mazatlan today. 17-21 of Sunday and the mid teens on Monday.
As far as Temperatures the overnight lows in December here in the cove are around 60 degrees. Tomorrow the tail end of that cold front moving down the west coast will swing trough Baja and I’d not be surprised if we saw the mid 50s tomorrow night. Today’s highs in the high 60 to the low 70s.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that most of the moisture laden clouds from that moisture plume off the west coast have passed over the Sea during the night. Here in the cove we had some rain around 10:30 last night and a few light sprinkles for a short time after that. I noted that a number of locations to the north of Concepcion Bay had periodic light rain during the night.
That weak jet that was supporting the flow of clouds toward Baja has just about dried up. I noticed that several of the bloggers are referring to this plume as the Pineapple Express. I daily check to see if the annual appearance of our winter tropical jet stream has shown up yet and so far, no joy. I guess with all this cloudiness they are assuming it is the winter jet.
This image as well as the water vapor images are showing that area of disturbed weather SW of the cape that has been the genesis for these clouds has dried up. There is still a lot of moisture in the Eastern Pacific basin and the west/east flow in the basin will be sending this moisture in the form of whispys today. This morning there will probably be some residual fluffys in the mix.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico I can see the entire coast is clear to Central America this morning.
Nothing going on in the Tehuantepec until this weekend, then a mini-pecker is forecast with winds just below gale force and seas to around 10 feet.
That’s what is going on in out hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the Great Northwest will see rain and snow into next week.
In northern California a cold front that is bringing rain and snow to the Great Northwest will meander down the coast and arrive in northern California bringing rain by tomorrow night. Snow levels will drop to around 1500 feet by Saturday morning. The storm will be a quick mover so there won’t be much snow accumulation.
Conditions will dry out rapidly as the system moves south into southern California and Arizona. It will remain cold. Another wet system is progged to arrive about mid next week.
In southern California cold weather will continue as a broad trough of low pressure continues over the west. A few showers are possible in the San Diego area this morning. They should also see some frost tonight.
Saturday the next storm is forecast to arrive bringing rain and mountain snow along with gusterly conditions in the deserts and mountains. Dry weather is on tap for next week with a very weak and slow warming trend for the southland.
Looking now over to the southwest where a storm moving through the Great Basin will be bringing valley rain and mountain snow today. It will also be colder requiring a third dog for these two-dog nights they have been having. A widespread hard freeze is forecast for tomorrow morning. Another system is progged to arrive about mid next week bringing more rain, mountain snow and the need for that third dog.
That’s what is gong on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the general direction of the wind will be from the NW today. In general the northern Sea will see winds in the low teens, the central see high teens and the southern Sea low teens again.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: mid teens for the next 3 days. Today and tomorrow NW and SW on Saturday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: the NW for the 3-day forecast period. Today mid teens, tomorrow high teens and Saturday low teens.
The Baja side of the central Sea: NE today around 17. Tomorrow about the same 17-18 knots from the NW, then on Saturday light winds from the NE.
Puerto Escondido: light NE today, strong to 18 tomorrow from the NE and light SE on Saturday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Low teens today from the NW high teens tomorrow from the north and then light NW winds on Saturday.
The East Cape: NW for the 3-day forecast period. today16, tomorrow 21 and Saturday 12.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan to see low 20s tomorrow and Saturday from the NW but today Mazatlan to Cabo Corrienties light NW and south of the cape light SW for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the moisture plume that has been providing clouds over most of the Sea for the past several days swung a bit to the north and the plume lightened considerably yesterday with mostly high cirrus clouds providing the Sea with mostly sunshine all day.
This morning this image is showing mostly high whispys backed up by some thicker mid level clouds to the west.
This morning the plume is joined by another lighter plume to the south that will be providing cloud cover over the cape region today.
The current IR and water vapor imagery continues to show a lot of moisture in the major plume. A cold front is still on schedule to pass through northern and central Baja this evening. A normal assumption would be when this dry cold air meets this moist plume you would see some rain. The bloggers in the cape region are all over the place with this system with some saying significant while others hedging their bets saying just sprinkles. Well we won’t have long to wait until we see what will happen. I’m thinking that the plume continues to have hot spots and it is probably these that will be the rain generators. It also looks like Concepcion Bay will be on the cusp of any rain that is generated. We’ll see!
Looking now to the west coast of Mexico where there is some cloud cover over Mazatlan and a thumper just off shore near Zihuatanejo and that is it of any clouds along the Mexican Riviera this morning.
Nothing cooking in the Gulf of Tehuantepec this morning.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where an arctic air mass will dip southward across the West Coast today, as below average temperatures will linger over several states. Temperatures will range between the 30s and 40s across the Pacific Northwest, while the Southwest can expect temperatures between the 50s and 60s. Valleys and deserts can expect nighttime temperatures to drop into the 30s, while higher elevations will experience even colder conditions. Light rain and snow will be possible in southern California and Arizona.
In northern California the National Weather Service has issued a freeze warning from tonight into 8am Saturday for the foothills, the Sacramento valley and just about everywhere else except in San Francisco it self. .
In southern California showers began last night and will taper off this morning. Snow levels will be as low as 3000 feet this morning. It will remain cold and gusterly into Friday when a wetter storm will arrive bringing mountain snow and valley rain.
Looking now over to the southwest where that system moving through the western conus will bring a chance of valley rain and mountain snow today through tomorrow night. It will also being much colder weather and gusterly winds. Another storm is on tap for 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 continue to see strong southerlies today and the rest of the light winds.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: strong SW today to 23. Light NW tomorrow and light NE on Friday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: NW for the next 3 days. Today light, tomorrow around 22 and then on Friday around 18.
The Baja side of the central Sea: light East today then moderate NE for Thursday and Friday.
Puerto Escondido: Moderate SW today. Light NE tomorrow. And moderate NE on Friday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Light SW today: light NW tomorrow: then mid teens from the north on Friday.
La Paz: light SW today, light NW tomorrow and then around 20 on Friday from the NW.
The East Cape: light NE today. Around 17 tomorrow from the NW then 21 from the NW on Friday.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan south to Cabo Corrienties light NW winds. South of the cape light SW for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the moisture plume that has been with us for several days will again be with us today and most likely tomorrow. This morning I can see some dark bottomed clouds in the mix along multi-level couds. Tomorrow when that arctic low swings through northern Baja it will meet up with this warm moist plume and I’d be surprised if we did not get some rain tomorrow night, perhaps in the afternoon. Depending on how far south the low sags we could see showers all the way to the cape. Maybe, perhaps? Well, we’ll see? You may want to put the liner back in your Speed-Os its going to get a bit chilly as this front passes through.
Looking now south to along the west coast of Mexico where I can see that Mazatlan is overcast this morning and there has been passing clouds between there and Cabo Corrienties all night however this morning the skies in this image look clear.
Nothing going on in the Tehuantepec and no wind events in the near future.
So that’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where a rather dry cold front moved out of the Gulf of Alaska and dropped down the British Columbia coast where it split. Half is pushing a very cold arctic air mass across Washington and Oregon this morning. This very cold air will blanket the western conus and will settle into the Great Basin for the next 48 hours.
The other half will sag down the west coast today through Thursday.
In northern California cold temperatures will last through at least Thursday so the freeze watch will extend into Wednesday night. In the Sacramento valley and the foothills temperatures could get down to the 20s tonight.
In southern California the low will bring a chance of showers late today into Thursday especially over the higher terrain. Snow levels will fall from around 8000 feet today to around 3000 feet tomorrow. It will also bring strong gusterly winds in the mountains and deserts today and this evening. The cold weather will continue all week with another chance of rain next weekend.
Looking now over to the southwest where mild and dry conditions will continue today. Tomorrow will bring a good chance of valley rain and mountain snow into Friday morning, with the first widespread freeze for the lower deserts on tap for Friday morning. This system will also bring much colder temperatures, lower snow levels and gusterly winds throughout the week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the Sea of Cortez will be mostly overcast today. The winds in general will be strong from the SW in the northern Sea today and moderate from the SE in the central and southern Sea today.

Sea of Cortez Weather for 12/02/13

By: Geary, 2:16 PM GMT on December 02, 2013



Monday, December 02, 2013

Voice to Text

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that area of disturbed weather SW of the cape is continuing to send a broad, scattered plume of clouds that has been, and it looks like will continue to blanket the Sea of Cortez with clouds, some with dark bottoms today.
There is also a 90 mph jet that is moving moisture up from the ITCZ/Monsoon trough and adding moisture to these clouds moving toward Baja. It’s about time for the southern jet to show up. This could be the very start of it.
Looking now south to the west coast of Mexico where again this morning I can’t see any clouds until you get to around Panama.
The wind event is over in the Gulf of Tehuantepec however after 6 days of storm force winds it will take at least a day, perhaps two for the Seas to lie back down. Winds are forecast to be less than 10 today.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north where it is cold and about to get much colder as that much advertized cold air mass is beginning to spill into the Great Northwest this morning. Temperatures are already dropping into the 30s and 40 over the region, a good 10-20 degrees cooler than yesterday morning.
The Cascades will receive over a foot of new snow and serious rain is forecast for Washington and Oregon.
This front is forecast to split and the half with most of the moisture move east into Idaho and Montana. The other half will drop south bringing lots of cold and not much moisture.
In northern California a hard freeze watch remains in effect from late Wednesday through Saturday morning below 2000 feet. Light snow will begin in the Sierras this evening.
That cold air mass will reach southern California tomorrow afternoon bringing first gusts to around 40 mph along the coast and up to 50 in the interior mountains and diminish by late Tuesday evening.
Wednesday through Friday will be much colder with the potential for hard freeze conditions in the interior valleys.
Looking now over to the southwest where it will mostly cloudy and dry today and tomorrow. The arctic storm will be moving through the Great Basin and most of the western conus on Wednesday, bringing a good chance of valley rain and mountain snow to SW Arizona late night through Friday morning. The first widespread freeze for the lower deserts is possible Friday morning.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence if looks like the northern crossing will have the strongest winds today and they will be around 20. The rest of the Sea the mid teens.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light NW today then around 20 from the SW on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: around 23 today from the NW then light southerlies on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 17-21 today from the NW then light east or SW winds for Tuesday and Wednesday.
Puerto Escondido: mid teens for the 3-day forecast period. Today from the N, then SW for the next two days.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light NW today then light to moderate SW for the next two.
East Cape: moderate NW today then light NE for the next two.
Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan today around 23 then mid teens on Tuesday and Wednesday. Puerto Vallarta and Cabo Corrienties area light to moderate NW winds and south of the cape light SW for the 3-day forecast period.
