.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the very active ITCZ/Monsoon trough has been sending broken bands of clouds toward the Baja peninsula for the past 24 hours.
It also looks like those cirrus that have are off the Baja west coast were passing over much of the peninsula from time to time yesterday causing hazy conditions late in the afternoon in the central sea.
Down around the cape one website reported morning fog however most of the time the images that I’m using are unable to see very thin whispys and fog unless it is very thick.
Speaking of which the outside of the Baja peninsula from around Turtle Bay north is still fog bound. This morning this image is showing it extending inland quite a ways.
Looking now south to the Mexican Riviera where the coast is pretty much clear south to Central America this morning.
I have already mentioned the Tehuantepec being rather active. There is an almost solid line of heavy thunderbumper activity from Panama all the way out to 150W this morning.
That’s what’s going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where there are two more systems off the Washington coast that will be bringing rain to the Great Northwest today and tomorrow then under high pressure they could actually be seeing sunshine Friday into the weekend.
Northern California has a weak fast moving system moving through this morning bringing rain from the border to the bay area and Sacramento and foothills today it will exit to east tonight. High pressure will fill in and northern California will dry out and be warmer into the weekend.
Southern California under May Grey will be seeing fog and coastal fog inland to the mountains today retreating this afternoon with a chance of the beaches seeing sunshine later in the afternoon. It will be breezy in the mountains and deserts through tomorrow. The May Grey will continue into next week.
Looking now over to the southwest where a slow warming trend will occur today and tomorrow as high pressure strengthens a bit over the western conus. They can expect to see above normal high Temperatures in the mid to upper 90s into the weekend.
The lower deserts will continue to be breezy today.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it’s one of those “if you liked yesterday, you’ll like today” days. Very moderate winds for the entire sea. The northern sea will continue to see moderate southerlies into the weekend. The central sea moderate northerlies picking up a tad on Saturday. The southern sea light to moderate winds with a western component.
Temps in most locations inched up a degree or two yesterday and today should be about like yesterday in the high 80s to the low 90s for most locations.

73s Y’all
