.Looking down into the Sea this morning in general the Sea has been pretty much cloud free for the past 24 hours.
The exception is the cape area which is seeing some cloudiness from hurricane Miriam.
Looking over to the west coast of Mexico, the Mexican Riviera where it has been clear to around Zihuatanejo, and from there south it has been pretty much one solid thunderbumper for the past 24 hours.

Now looking in our Tropical Kitchen this morning. It looks like Bubba is coming and wearing a dress.
**************
Miriam is gaining intensity very quickly and will become a cat 3 hurricane with winds to 130 mph later in the week. Forecast models are changing with each new advisory.
Here is what it looks like right now. Miriam is 642 miles SW of the cape at 17.3N 112.2W, and a cat 2 hurricane. She is currently having gusts to 90mph and gust to 130 mph. Later this afternoon she will up upgraded to a cat 3.
The forecast track is for her to continue moving NW today and tomorrow at a cat 3 storm then as she crosses over 20N on Wednesday and cooler waters becomes a cat 2 storm. (Winds to 110mph) at this time she will head pretty much due north following 115W on Thursday and becoming a cat 1 storm. By then she should be due west of the cape.
Right now the model consensuses show Miriam crossing the Baja peninsula between Santa Rosalia and the Bay of La later in the week. The big question is, in what state and when. A tropical storm or remnant low. So far none of the major services has ventured a guess.
****************
REPEAT
Well, that’s what’s going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where a low has moved in from the Pacific and cooled off the west coast. Forecasters in Seattle are even hinting at rain later in the week.
Sothern California, along with the cool down, will be a bit gusterly in the deserts and mountains.
Looking over to the southwest where a cooling trend will occure this week as high pressure weakens. Tucson won’t make it to 100 today, should be around 96. There is a slight chance of some thunderbumper activity across the White Mountains today and tomorrow. Better chances next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the northern Sea will see moderate southerlies today and brisk to strong southerlies on Wednesday.
The central Sea moderate southerlies for the 3-day forecast period.
The southern Sea moderate East today NW tomorrow and I’m a bit iffy for wed with Miriam in the vicinity. Right now it looks like moderate SE.
Looks like another nice day in Baja. Temperatures will be in the mid 90s today.

73s Y’all
