Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see we have had another 24 hours of clear skies over both the Sea of Cortez and the Mexican Riviera all the way south to Central America.
The only weather is in the Gulf of Tehuantepec this morning where a cold front has moved into the Gulf of Mexico and will deliver a round of cooler and dryer air down the Gulf Coast of Mexico through the Chivela pass into the Gulf. Winds are expected to reach 30 knots this morning with seas building to around 11 feet later this evening. This wind event will be short lived as the models are showing the winds to diminish below 20 knots by tomorrow evening.
Taking a quick look at the ITCZ/Monsoon trough where there is not much going on this morning with the water vapor imagery showing only moderate convection along the zone.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where in the Great Northwest Seattle is dry this morning and Portland is seeing rain.
Northern California will continue to see light rain through tonight then should see a drying out period into the weekend as high pressure rebuilds over the state.
In the LA basin they will see some light rain today ending this evening. Tomorrow is forecast to be overcast but then a clearing period into early next week.
Extreme Southern California in the San Diego area no rain is in their forecast but it will remain cloudy and a bit cooler into the weekend.
Looking now over to the southwest where near recorded temperatures are expected for today with highs breaking the 80 degree mark across the lower deserts. Dry and warm weather are forecast to continue through the end of the week.
That’s what is happening to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the strongest winds will be in the northern crossing region with winds to a bit less than 20. The rest of the Sea pretty much in the moderate ranges.
For the northern Sea today moderate NW winds in the 9-11 knot ranges. Tomorrow moderate SE winds. Friday picking up just a tad and be from the NE probably less than 15 knots.
The central Sea today brisk NW winds in the high teens. Tomorrow very moderate southerlies and Friday moderate NE winds.
The southern Sea moderate NW winds today then light Thursday and Friday. La Paz from the WSW and the East Cape the light winds will come from the NE.
For the outside Pt. San Quinten will continue to see the strongest winds and be around 20 today 30 tomorrow and back to 20 on Friday. The rest of the passage mostly in the moderate ranges for the next three days.
The Mexican Riviera will continue to see light to moderate winds with a southern flavor over the 3-day forecast period.

Temperatures about like yesterday in the high 70s and low 80s in the Sea and mid 80s along the Riviera.

73s Y’all
