Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea has pretty much clear for most of yesterday.
Yesterday afternoon there were two fairly large cells that developed in the southern end of the peninsula. One just south of La Paz in the mountains and the other a bit further south that moved NW in the bight between Mag Bay and Barolos. It looks like that one was a good rain producer. That's the first summer storm I’ve seen that was that far north along the Pacific coast.
Also over in Sonora early last evening a cell developed between Los Mochas and Guaymas and starting moving NW and growing and expanding across the Sea to the Baja coast. This morning it is on the wane however the Sea between Loreto and San Franciscito bay has remnant clouds blanketing that area. The center of this cell is pretty much directly over Guaymas at 5am this morning. Guaymas has had about a third inch of rain since midnight and a little better than 30 knot winds around 2 o’clock this morning.
Further south there has been considerable thunderbumper activity all along the Mexican Riviera with rain totals up to and inch and a half in some locations. There is a lot of showers and thumprs to the west of Puerto Vallarta that have moved out into the Sea bringing cloud cover to the cape area the southern crossing this morning.
Now the Tropical Kitchen is heating up this morning. That area of low pressure that has been pretty much stationary SW of Acapulco for the past couple of days has been waiting for it’s pal to show up. Late yesterday it did. Now there are two lows in close proximity that will merge sometime today. They are officially invest 98 and 99. This will develop into our next tropical storm probably tomorrow. This will be a “J” storm. Traditionally the storms that the name starts with a J have been the ones that have moved up the Baja peninsula. The current computer models are pretty much in agreement that this storm will move WNW passing well to the SW of the cape briefly as himicane John hopefully this storm reads this forecast.
Tropical storm Ileana that is well off the west coast of Baja became depressed early this morning however will leave just a lot of moisture in the region that will drift north.
OK, that’s what is happening in our hood so looking north now to the west coast of America where nothing has changed in the past week. High pressure blankets the west. Seasonal cool temperatures along the coast and seasonal warm, not hot, temperatures inland.
Moisture will be moving north from tropical depression Ileana into southern California bringing some mostly high cloudiness but that’s pretty much it for the west coast.
Looking over to the southwest this morning where they might see some lingering showers in the higher terrain of south-central Arizona today. The water vapor imager is showing the state to be pretty dry. Next week conditions will improve for more monsoonal conditions. I can see a thin Vail of clouds moving across the state from Ileana.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence moderate southerlies for the entire Sea today and tomorrow. Tuesday the central Sea from Santa Rosalia to Concepción Bay will see strong southerlies to 24 knots.
The southern Sea today moderate southerlies. Tomorrow strong southerlies to 25 knots. Then back to the moderate ranges on Tuesday.
At 7am the sky over Concepción Bay still had heavy overcast and lightning strikes could be seen to the east. It looked like the remnant clouds from this band of cells could drift as far north as the Bay of La area before completely dissipating this morning.
Temperatures today will be in the mid to high 90s.

73s Y’all
