Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez remains cloud free.
To the south along the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera there has been some whispys passing over the Manzanillo and Zihuatanejo area during the night but it looks like they could see a few more but sunshine should be the order of the day for the entire west coast of Mexico.
Further south in the Gulf of Tehuantepec the current Tehuantepecker is still brewing with the GALE force winds expected to last until Sunday morning.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the models are showing the high off the west coast will be keeping the west coast dry for the foreseeable future.
High pressure in the 1030 ranges over the Nevada plateau of the Great Basin and around 1019 in southern California is keeping the Santa Ana wind event bringing warm gusterly winds into the southland today. These strong winds are forecast to decease by this evening.
Temperature-wise all of California is experiencing above normal daytime highs. San Francisco will hit 71 degrees today. San Diego 81.
Looking now over to the southwest where Tucson will see around 73 this afternoon. Warm and dry are forecast well into next week.
That’s what is happening to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence today should be the last day of this wind event. The weekend and Monday look like the moderate northerlies will be in the Sea of Cortez.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period. The predominate winds will be from the NW.
The northern Sea: 19 today, 17 tomorrow and 13 on Sunday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 20 today, 18 tomorrow and 15 on Sunday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 21 today 18 tomorrow and 15 on Sunday afternoon.
Puerto Escondido: NE for the 3-day forecast period. 17 today, 14 tomorrow and 13 on Sunday
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. 11-13 from the NW for the next three days.
La Paz: 16 today NW then 13-14 from the NE for the weekend.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan half way: mid teens today and Sunday and tomorrow around 20. For the second half moderate NW for the 3-day forecast period.
Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan today around 9 from the NE, tomorrow 15NW and Sunday 10 from the NW.
Puerto Vallarta area: mostly light NE or NW for the 3-day forecast period.
Cabo Corrienties: light southerlies tomorrow otherwise light NW for the 3-day forecast period.
South of the cape mostly light to moderate SW winds for the next 3 days.
