Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez has been cloud free for the past 24 hours.
There has been considerable thunderbumper activity on the mainland through with a long line of systems moving north into SW New Mexico then crossing over the top of Arizona into Utah and Nevada sort of ending up in the Sierras where there had been a lot of thunderbumpers working from yesterday afternoon until present. All this thunderbumper activity in the Sierras should end this evening or tomorrow morning.
Looking back at the Sea and the west coast of Mexico I can see there have been a lot of thumpers working close to shore inland but it does not look like any thunderbumpers have been active along the coast. The coast is however overcast from around Cabo Corrienties south this morning.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific basin and the ITCZ/Monsoon trough I can see that it is very activity this morning with a long line of thunderbumper working all along the zone.
We do have an item in our Tropical Kitchen this morning. It is invest 98E and is around 550 miles SW of Manzanillo this morning. It will be going through its growing stages today with little chance of become anything tropical in the next 48 hours but then it looks like this will become our next named storm, Flossie, (That’s Flossie with an “ie”). The early computer tracks have this system moving more west than north and posing no threat to land during its lifetime.
Out in the Atlantic there were a couple of Tropical Waves headed our way but one got Shanghaied by a lonely low around 23W and its foreword progress has stopped. It will now become the next Atlantic tropical Storm.
The other Tropical Wave is crossing the Dominican Republic this morning around 70W. This has a good possibility of making it all the way to the Pacific. We’ll see?
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where Oregon and Washington remain dry today. Northern California will be seeing a lot of thunderbumper activity in the mountains and the upper foothills today. Coastal communities and the inland valleys will most likely remain dry.
In southern California moisture and instability will gradually decrease through Wednesday with just a few thunderbumpers possible over the mountains and deserts today. There will be a warming trend through Friday. A weak low trough off the coast could bring up moisture from the south and result in a few thunderbumpers on Friday. Otherwise summer weather will prevail through next weekend with some night and morning clouds near the coast and locally gusterly winds in the deserts in the afternoons and evenings.
Looking now over to the southwest where that low that moved out of Texas and crept along the international Fence over the weekend is now slowly moving north over California allowing high pressure to build back into the region over the next couple of days. This will initiate a drying trend that will last through tomorrow and keep the best chances for storms over the higher terrain of south-central Arizona through mid-week. Monsoon moisture will move back into the region in the later half of the week bringing more rain again by this weekend.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the fence it looks like today and tomorrow the Sea will see moderate southerlies in the low to mid teens. On Thursday most locations on the Baja side will see SE winds in the high teens.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light NE Today. Moderate SE tomorrow and around 18 knots on Thursday again from the SE.
The central Sea: the Sonoran area: very moderate southerlies for the 3-day forecast period.
The Baja side moderate today and tomorrow and then to 18 on Thursday.
The southern Sea: the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands today light SE, tomorrow light westerlies, and Thursday light SW winds.
The East Cape: moderate SE today and Thursday and light NW tomorrow.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan today high teens from the NW. Tomorrow and Thursday moderate winds from the SW. Puerto Vallarta south light winds mostly from the SW for the next 3 days.
