Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea had a brief clearing yesterday afternoon before it become cloudy again.
In southern Sonoran they had considerable thunderbumper activity yesterday afternoon and the remnant clouds from these cells have drifted out into the Sea and have pretty much blanketed the southern Sea to the northern crossing. This latest image is showing these clouds dissipating so I’d expect that by perhaps mid morning they should be gone.
Looking to the northern Sea this morning where I can see where post-tropical remnant low Ivo is now over the northern Baja peninsula this morning. This image is showing most of the cloudiness is to the north of Gonzaga Bay this morning. Water vapor imagery is showing abundant moisture being swept north from Ivo into southern California and SW Arizona this morning.
I’d expect the northern and central Sea to also clear by mid morning.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see a nice tall cell directly over Puerto Vallarta this morning. Further south it is solid thunderbumpers from Manzanillo south to Acapulco this morning. The Tehuantepec is very active with numerous thumpers building and diminishing overnight.
Over on the Caribbean side there is tropical storm Fernand that is moving inland, and this morning pretty much all of southern Mexico has cloud cover with thunderbumpers working all over the SW Mexico.
Back over here in the Eastern Pacific basin we have an item on the back burner of our Tropical Kitchen this morning. It is a low and associated Tropical Wave that is, and will be, hugging the coast bringing showers and thunderbumpers all along the SW coast of Mexico. Long range it is forecast to become a hurricane later in the week. Meantime it will be slowly moving NNW up the coast producing locally heavy rain. Interests along the coast should closely monitor the progress of this storm due to the proximity of the storm to the coastline.
It is currently designated as invest 95E, the name will be Juliette and the early computer track have it paralleling the west coast of Mexico to around Cabo Corrienties before turning to the west a bit more to skirt around the cape.
This is five days out so don’t chisel this storms track in stone. Two ticks to the east and it could come into the Sea. So we will be closely monitoring the forward progress of this storm.
That’s what is gong on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where again Seattle is again seeing a chance of rain today.
In northern California it looks like a very calm week is in store for them. High pressure off the west coast is keeping the storm door well to the north.
In southern California tropical moisture from Brother Ivo will spread north and westward through tonight bringing periods of heavy rain showers and thunderbumpers particularly over the mountains and deserts. The coast could also see significant rainfall. A flash flood watch is in effect for most areas until midnight tonight. Showers should decrease tomorrow but the threat of afternoon and evening thunderbumpers will continue through this week.
Looking now over to the southwest where flash flood advisories have been posted over much of the SW today including Yuma. A stormy and unsettled period is anticipated today across the region as deep moisture from former tropical storm Ivo moves into the state from the south. There should be sufficient moisture remain in place for afternoon and evening showers and thumpers the remainder of the work week. Temperatures will dip a few degrees this week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence we should see most of the cloudiness in the Sea dissipate by mid or late morning today.
Post-Tropical depression Ivo is now over northern Baja pretty much sitting on the Fence between southern California and SW Arizona his morning. So with the exception of around San Filepe which seen over an inch of rain since midnight could see some more rain and flooding today, the Sea will be fairly calm with mostly moderate northerlies. Tomorrow the Sea will continue to see moderate northerlies with Wednesday the moderate winds swinging back to the SE again albeit a bit stronger.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light northerlies today and tomorrow and moderate SE on Wednesday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: Light to moderate SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
The Baja side of the central Sea: light NE winds today and tomorrow and then moderate southerlies on Wednesday.
The forecast for the Puerto Escondido area is for light to moderate SE for the 3-day forecast period.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands: Light NW today the light SE on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The East Cape: mid teens today from the NW. light from the NW tomorrow and lighter NE on Wednesday.
The Mexican Riviera: light NW from Mazatlan to Cabo Corrienties for the 3-day forecast period. South of Cabo Corrienties there will be a storm moving up the coast bringing strong winds and rain. Winds should be light SW today then be influenced by the low with winds in the mid to high 20s as the storm passes to the west.
