.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea has been pretty much free of any cloudiness for the past 24 hours.
In the far northern Sea a light plume of clouds emanating from the remnant low of former tropical storm Kristy passed over yesterday afternoon, but it looks like it has been clear over night.
The water vapor imagery is showing the Sea of Cortez to be very dry this morning.
Looking now south I can see where there was some light thunderbumper activity just off shore between Puerto Vallarta and Cabo Corrienties yesterday morning but that dissipated not long after the sun came up.
I have to look way south to around the Tehuantepec to see any clouds along the west coast of Mexico this morning.
Looking west out into the ITCZ/Monsoon trough which is snaking along 10N this morning, I can see it is fairly active with many squalls along the zone.
Not much going on in our Tropical Kitchen this morning. Lane was plutoed to a tropical storm yesterday afternoon and around 2 O’clock this morning it became depressed and is not heading to Hawaii.
Former tropical storm Kristy is now just a remnant low and a moderate cloud producer. The cloudiness in the area seems to be dissipating so I’d doubt that the northern Sea will see any cloudiness like yesterday afternoon.
Looking at the 24 hour loop, this is the first time in a month that I have not seen at least some thunderbumper activity anywhere. Nothing going on over in Sonora, the coastal mountains of Baja, or anyplace in the Sea.
I don’t want to be lured into thinking our tropical season is over. Officially we have six more weeks. Typically, about three more weeks.
So in the meantime we will continue to enjoy the very pleasant late summer weather.
That’s what is going on in our hood so looking north now to the west coast of America where the models are showing high pressure continuing to blanket the west at least into the weekend. Several of the models are showing a low moving in from the Pacific and nudging the high off to the east. That could get our southern winds flowing again.
As for the weather along the coast. It is starting to cool off in the Great Northwest where temperatures in Seattle were in the 80’s last week will be in the high 60’s this weekend.
Not much change in California into the weekend. A small chance of some rain in northern California as a low approached the coast.
Southern California will remain in the mid 80s into the weekend. That low should cool temperatures off a little in the southland into next week.
Looking over to the southwest where the big story is Fire danger. No rain in sight and low humidity has kept Red Flag warnings up for the Great Basin and the northern Rockies and pretty much in general the entire southwest. .
Arizona will continue to have clear skies and seasonably warm temperatures into the weekend. They should see a modest cooling trend begin early next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the northern Sea will continue to see moderate northerlies over the 3-day forecast period.
Today the Sonoran coast from Puerto Panesco to Guaymas will have the strongest winds in the 20 knot ranges.
The central Sea moderate northerlies today and the southern Sea light to moderate northerlies today.
It looks like a Chamber of Commerce day in Baja again.
Temperatures will be in the mid to high 90s again today.
73s Y’all
