Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea has had another 24 hours of cloudless skies. Perhaps some morning fog here and there but that’s it.
Looking out along the west coast of the Baja peninsula I can see a fairly thick fog bank hugging the coast this morning from San Francisco in northern California south to around Abreojos.
Looking south to along the west coast of Mexico I can see that the skies have been clear to just south of Manzanillo. There is now and has been all night a lot of thunderbumper activity from Zihuatanejo to Acapulco.
Interesting, the Gulf of Tehuantepec which has had almost daily thumpers working over it, has been relatively clear for the past 24 hours and the isthmus has also been free of any thunderbumpers.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific basin this morning I can see that the ITCZ/Monsoon trough is very active. It is pretty much one solid high-topped thumper from the Costa Rica coast west all the way out to around 150.
There is nothing going on in the Tropical Kitchen this morning. We do have two Tropical Waves on the charts this morning. One is still well out in the Atlantic at around 69W, the other has just moved through Central America and is now entering an area of very dry air the Eastern Pacific basin. It has dumped most of it’s moisture and is now sort of moisture starved and the forecast is for this wave to continue to weaken through tomorrow morning.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where I can that large low that was parked in the Gulf of Alaska has moved south and is now about 600 miles west of Seattle this morning. It is forecast to gradually deepen off shore during the weekend and then slowly move towards the coast on Monday and Tuesday and then slip down into northern and central California on Wednesday.
So in Seattle this weekend the umbrellas are put away and the Golf clubs and bicycles are brought out with abundant sunshine on tap until that low moves ashore late Monday.
In northern California they too will see sunshine until that trough moves through early next week. In the meantime it will be just a bit cooler. In the wake of the front late next week it should start to warm back up again.
In southern California June Gloom will be the norm for the next few days with slightly cooler weather. Fog will extend inland quite a ways and retreat to almost the beaches in the afternoons. A more significant warm up can be expected next weekend as high pressure builds in from the Pacific.
Looking now over to the southwest where it looks like the southeastern part of Arizona got some thunderbumper activity yesterday and it looks like they could see some more this afternoon and evening. Thereafter its back to hot and dry for the upcoming week. One of the Arizona forecasters in referring to today’s thunderbumpers said, “Some storms will probably get pretty frisky in this environment”. So you folks on the north side of the Fence will get a little taste of your monsoon season again today then the moisture will ebb back out of the picture for a bit. So to the east of Tucson they have Frisky storms in their forecast today.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence no frisky storms for us unless you are in the Sierra Madre Occidental mountain ranges in Central Mexico where that area has been pumping moisture into the SE Corner of Arizona and the SW corner of New Mexico for the past 24 hours.
In general this weekend in the Sea will see moderate winds today from the south and then slowly bending to be from the NE by Monday.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: moderate SE today then light NE on Sunday and Monday.
The Central Sea: The Guaymas area should see light SW today then moderate NW tomorrow and Monday.
The Baja side: the mid teens for the next 3 days all from the NE.
The southern Sea: The San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands: moderate SW today light westerly’s tomorrow and then light SE on Monday.
The Sonoran passage: mostly moderate WSW for the 3-day forecast period.
The Mexican Riviera: the Mazatlan area should see moderate SW winds for the next 3 days. Puerto Vallarta to Cabo Corrienties moderate NW winds and south of Cabo Corrienties, moderate SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
