.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the central and southern Sea saw considerable cloudiness yesterday. All this cloudiness is coming from a plume of moisture rotating off to tropical storm Kristy that goes east over the peninsula, the Sea of Cortez, Mainland Mexico, the Gulf of Mexico and curls north along the eastern Sea board. Very similar to our winter Pineapple Express.
With Kristy winding down the plume should weaken and the Sea should see less cloudiness today. The latest images are showing the plume to be dissipating fairly rapidly so the entire Sea could see sunshine all afternoon. We’ll see?
Yesterday there were numerous hot cells all along the peninsula. The IR 24 hour loop is showing most of these cells in the afternoon to be short lived. I’m sure some could have been rain producers. Here in the cove we heard thunder rumbling in the vicinity but no rain.
Looking over at Sonora I can see there was very little thunderbumper activity there in the past 24 hours.
Looking south of the cape along the Mexican Riviera: There has been very little thunderbumper activity along the coast in the past 24 hours as well.
Now, looking in our Tropical Kitchen. We have one system winding down and another spinning up.
Kristy has now reached cooler waters well west of Mag Bay and the latest images are showing the cloudiness around her becoming smaller and smaller. She will most likely be plutoed to a remnant low later today.
Yesterday morning invest 91 was just north of the ITCZ/Monsoon trough. At 8:30 she was upgraded to a tropical depression. At 2:30 yesterday afternoon she became a tropical storm and later today she will become a cat 1 hurricane. Her name is Lane. She is forecast to continue tracking pretty much due west and poses no danger to any land.
So we have two items in out Tropical Kitchen this morning and neither one will affect the weather in the Sea of Cortez or Baja. Perhaps the only effect will be good surfing along Baja’s west coast. 7 ft seas are forecast.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where high pressure is keeping the west hot and dry. Most statewide forecasts mention increased fire danger.
In the Great Northwest today is “Stay Away from Seattle Day” The tongue-in-cheek holiday even has its own Hallmark page, in which the world's most famous greeting card maker describes the day as follows:
"Because frankly Seattle doesn't want you coming around, stinking up the joint. And last time you tracked mud all over the carpet and some of the special occasion dinnerware went missing. Seattle will let you know when it's ready to see you again. Until then, keep your distance. You think we're kidding but really this day was championed by Seattle residents tired of sharing their space with tourists."
Meantime, Southern California does not mind the tourists. Great time to visit Disneyland. It will cool off at little today then heat up again next week as the high strengthens again. It does not look like there will be much of a change in the weather for the west for the next week. Looking now over to the southwest will remain dry under high pressure for the next week. Seasonably warm temperatures with mild overnight lows are in the forecast.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the next 3 days the entire Sea will be seeing moderate northerlies in the Sea.
I’ve noticed that the humidity is starting to dip a little and the Temperature are now mostly in the low 90s.
