Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the skies are clear over the Sea of Cortez this morning.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see that around Manzanillo there has been some passing clouds. It looks like this morning that the heaviest have passed to the east and sunshine should be the order of the day for the entire west coast of Mexico today.
In the Gulf of Tehuantepec 50 knot winds were reported this morning. Storm force winds are expected to last through Christmas day then drop to gale force briefly before picking up again through Friday.
Seas will reach 18-20 feet by this morning.
That’s what is happening in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where high pressure off the west coast is keeping any storms well to the north of California. The Great Northwest will see sunshine through Christmas day then a weak front will bring a chance of showers Friday and Friday night. High pressure will rebuild over the area Saturday through the end of the year.
In northern California the high pressure will bring on a mild warming trend and clear skies are forecast until the end of the year.
In southern California the high pressure will dominate the weather through the New Years holiday. Generally mild and fair conditions will prevail each day as the offshore flow drives dry air toward the coast. The forecast is for slightly cooler conditions by the weekend as a weak upper low develops off shore. No rain is in the forecast for southern California throughout the week and into the new year.
Looking now over to the southwest where the high pressure will bring dry conditions and seasonable cool nights and mild daytime highs into next weekend.
Temperatures today will be a few degrees warmer than yesterday with temperatures warming each day through next weekend.
The high pressure is progged to weaken by next Monday in response to that low developing off the southern California coast.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence Santa will be bucking 20+ knot winds on his travels this evening. These strong NW winds are being forecast to last to the end of the week with Saturday right now looking like the first break for the northern and central Seas.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period. All from the NW.
The northern Sea: 21 today, 26 tomorrow and 23 on Thursday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 22 today, 25 tomorrow and 23 on Wednesday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 23 today, 27 tomorrow and 25 on Thursday.
Puerto Escondido: 18 today and around 21 tomorrow and Thursday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Mid teens from the north for the 3-day forecast period.
La Paz and the East Cape: high teens from the NW for the 3-day forecast period.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan: for the first half: 29 today, 23 tomorrow and low teens on Thursday. The second half light mostly NE winds for the 3-day forecast period.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan today light SW winds. Tomorrow NW to 17 and Thursday mid teens from the NW. Puerto Vallarta south mostly light NW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
