Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea has been virtually clear of any clouds for the past 24 hours.
Looking over to Sonora where they too have been relatively quiet for the past 24 hours with very little in the way of any thunderbumpers developing over the desert there.
Looking now south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera where most of the storms have taken place inland. There is some residual cloudiness from around Puerto Vallarta south to just south of Cabo Corrienties but no thumpers working along the coast this morning.
The Tehuantepec is clear of any clouds this morning and the forecast is for the light winds to continue.
In our Tropical Kitchen this morning we have the remnants of Gil and a weakening hurricane Henriette. She is still a cat 1 storm with gusts to around 100 mph. The models show the storm’s winds maxing out today and this evening, and then the storm will decay rapidly as it reaches cooler waters in around 36 hours.
Speaking of water temperatures, I noted that our Sea temperatures around the cape area warming up pretty much right on schedule. The developing storms will now have the warm waters of the cape and the southern Sea of Cortez to play in as we now start our serious 60 day Baja hurricane season.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the west coast is in a typical summer pattern with no extremes in the weather forecast for the next week from Seattle to San Diego. Just minor daily Temperature fluctuations with no rain in the forecasts.
Looking over to the southwest his morning where in this image I can see that the disturbance that brought widespread rain Monday with scattered showers and thunderbumpers yesterday is exiting the state to the northeast.
Drier air will spread into the desert southwest for a decrease in thunderbumper activity for the rest of the week allowing for warmer daytime temperatures.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like in general we will be having light to moderate winds for the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light SE today. Light NE for the next two days.
The central Sea, The Guaymas area: light to moderate NW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
The Baja side: light to moderate NE winds for the next 3 days.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands: light NW today, light SW tomorrow and light SE on Friday.
The East Cape: light northerly today then light SE for the next two.
The Mexican Riviera: north of Cabo Corrienties light NW. South of Cabo Corrienties light SW for the 3-day forecast period.

73s Y’all
