Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see our skies have been clear in the Sea of Cortez for the past 24 hours.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and from around Zihuatanejo south to Panama it is pretty much a solid line of thunderbumpers along the coast.
The Gulf Tehuantepec is also seeing numerous thunderbumpers daily and with the tropical depressions in close proximity will continue to see high winds and seas over the next several days.
Looking in our Tropical Kitchen this morning there are two tropical depressions within the ITCZ/Monsoon trough this morning. 91 Echo which is around 600 miles SW of Manzanillo this morning. It has only a slight chance of developing into a cyclone within the next 48 hours but bears continued watching.
The other depression is 92 Echo and it is several hundred miles south of the Gulf of Tehuantepec this morning and has a pretty good chance of becoming our next tropical storm. Meantime this close to the mainland it will be producing a lot of heavy rains over southern Mexico and Central America during the next few days. These early storms, close to the mainland, traditionally have produced flash flooding and mud slides especially in the Guatemala area. .
The name will be Barbara and she is forecast to slowly move WNW paralleling the ITCZ/Monsoon trough followed by a turn to the N or NE. OR do a “Crazy Ivan” and turn around and hit the mainland. We will just have to wait and see what she will do. The models are giving equal weight to both scenarios right now.
That’s what is gong on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image there is yet another storm moving in from the Pacific into the Great Northwest today. This will be producing rain, heavy at times, in Washington, Oregon and lighter rains in northern California today through tomorrow. The forecast is for unsettled weather for the Great Northwest all week.
In northern California they will start to see a dryer and warmer pattern later in the week. .
In southern California a trough of low pressure near the coast will keep the southland cool and gusterly until Wednesday when high pressure is expected to return which will bring a warming trend.
Looking now over to the southwest where warm and dry conditions will persist across the region through today. There will be a quick moving system pass to the north tomorrow and Wednesday bringing cooler than normal temperatures and breezy to windy conditions. A warming trend will take place late in the week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like mostly moderate east of SE winds for the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light today from the east. Moderate tomorrow from the SE and light again on Wednesday from the SE.
The Central Sea: The Baja side will see moderate NE or east winds over the next 3 days. The Sonoran side moderate WNW today then moderate SE for Tuesday and Wednesday.
The southern Sea: the San Lorenzo channel, La Paz and the nearby islands mostly mid teens from the SW for the next 3 days.
The East Cape: moderate NW today, light SE tomorrow and then light NE on Wednesday.
The Sonoran passage: mostly moderate SW for the next 3 days.
The Mexican Riviera: mostly light SW for the 3-day forecast period with the exception of Mazatlan which right now is forecast to see 20 knot southerlies on Wednesday.
