.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see there is still a lot of remnant cloudiness in the Sea this morning left over from the storms over on the mainland.
Looking over to Sonora where there was considerable thunderbumper activity there yesterday afternoon and in the evening hours. Most of the thumpers dissipated by around midnight and the remnant clouds have moved west out into the Sea and crossed the peninsual. It looks like the Sea should clear by mid morning.
Looking now south to the southern Sea where there was very heavy thunderbumper activity over around Los Mochas last night and between there and La Paz is where most of the remnant clouds were this morning. At 5am most had drifted west over the peninsula with only a few left in the area.
Looking now south to the Mexican Riviera and from Puerto Vallarta south to Central America there has been a lot of thunderbumper working their way toward the coast during the night and at 5am most of the west coast has some form of thumper working. Some on land and numerous squalls off shore.
The Tehuantepec is also blanketed with storms over it this morning. The Gulf of Tehuantepec is having a mild wind event this morning with gust to 20 knots and should lay down by this afternoon.
Looking now at the ITCZ/Monsoon trough where there a couple of lows embedded in the zone. Both are being stimulated by tropical waves.
The one with the best chance of tropical development has been designated at invest 90E and is about 750 miles southwest of Manzanillo this morning. The National Hurricane Center is giving it an 80% chance of becoming our next tropical storm within the next 48 hours. Forecast models are showing this developing system to move due west with no interaction with land.
The other one is less likely to develop.
So it looks like we will be moving this invest from the back burner to the front in our Tropical Kitchen probably tomorrow. The name will be Gilma. Where do they get these names? Sound like something found in the bottom of a Petri dish not a girl’s name.
I digress!
That’s what’s going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where a low has moved down from the Gulf of Alaska giving the Great Northwest another chance of showers today.
Northern California will stay hot and dry inland with temperatures reaching triple digits and the coast staying in the mid 70s.
Southern California under high pressure will continue to have warm days though tomorrow with the possibility of afternoon thunderbumper or showers in the deserts and mountains. A weak trough will cool things down a bit until Friday.
Looking now over to the southwest where the monsoon is monsooning and will continue to bring thunderbumper and showers to the southwest all week with a less active pattern in the later part of the week before cranking it up again early next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence where in general we can expect the entire Sea to see moderate southerlies over the 3-day forecast period. The fly in the ointment could be Wednesday on the Baja side of the northern crossing where 20 knot winds are forecast right now. That’s three days out so that could change.
Temperature-wise it looks like we will continue to see the high 80s to the mid 90s today.
The weather blogger in La Paz has upped the ante again saying yesterday “Brace yourself Baja” 100 degree temperatures are on the way for many locations on the peninsual.
My historical records show the average daytime high in the cove for July is 96 and that what we have been doing all this month. Historically it would be somewhat rare to have more than just a couple of days over 100 in July here. We’ll see?

73s Y’all
