.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Pineapple Express has continued to bring cloudiness to the Sea of Cortez for the past 24 hours.
The jet is less pronounced this morning and very broad extending the moisture plume from around San Filepe south to along the Mexican Riviera to around Manzanillo. So again today we will see some sun but mostly high whispys.
The ITCZ/Monsoon trough is very active this morning with fairly heavy thunderbumper activity from around 110W out to around 130.
Further south the Tehuantepecker continues with persistent strong to gale force northerly winds continuing to blow through the Gulf. Winds exiting the Chivilas Pass continue to be enhanced by nocturnal drainage flow across the Gulf and have been reading minimal gale force winds in the early morning hours. The models suggest that this pattern will continue through tomorrow before the winds abate. Gale force warnings will remain in effect for the Gulf of Tehuantepec through early Thursday morning with winds likely at or just below gall force occurring during the afternoon hours.
That’s what is going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image I can see that the Great Northwest will continue to have valley rain and the Cascades will continue to get heavy doses of snow. Winds to 65 mph are forecast for the higher elevations of the Cascades.
The rain will extend south to northern California tonight through Wednesday and bring high elevation snow as well to the Sierras.
Southern California won’t be affected by these systems and the southland is forecast of continue to have seasonal warm weather with some patchy clouds and morning fog along the coast.
Looking over to the southwest where the systems passing through to the north will bring some cloudy skies and a few light showers tonight into Wednesday. Otherwise they can expect to see dry and mostly clear conditions into the weekend with above average temperatures.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the Sonoran coasts will continue to see 20+ knot winds today.
The Baja side of the northern Sea will moderate NW winds over the 3-day forecast period.
The central Sea, northern crossing area will continue to see winds to 25 knots today diminishing tomorrow and Thursday.
The Puerto Escondido area should see moderate winds today.
The southern Sea, La Paz and the East Cape strong NW winds to 25 today diminishing tomorrow and Thursday.
Taking a last look at the ITCZ/Monsoon trough and the subtropical moisture moving off of it toward Baja this latest image would indicate that we could be seeing more sunshine that clouds later today. We’ll see?
