Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez is pretty much clear this morning but that may change this afternoon as a cold front moves through California this afternoon the northern Sea could see some cloudiness.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see that there are no clouds along the coast to almost South America.
In the Gulf of Tehuantepec GALE warnings remain posted for today. The winds are expected to decrease below GALE force this evening and to be less than 20 knots by tomorrow afternoon.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where from Seattle to central California they are seeing rain, mostly light, this morning. The accompanying cold front could bring some much needed snow to the Sierras today. The system is a fast mover and will exit to the east by tomorrow morning. Next Sunday another system is progged to move through California.
Several rather weak systems are progged to moving in from the Pacific this weekend then High pressure is forecast to rebuild over the Eastern Pacific by early next week. The only silver lining is that this ridge is not expected to be as strong as the big ridge that was off the west coast most of January. As a result there is hope for a more normal weather pattern for California for February instead to a drought pattern.
Looking now over to the southwest where the entire state is overcast this morning. Even so they will see near record highs today. Tomorrow as that cold front moving through the region it will cool thing off and bring a few mountain showers that could start as early as this evening and last into the weekend. It will also be a bit gusterly in the desert southwest today.
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 be seeing light to moderate southerlies then swing to the NE on Saturday.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: 17 SE today. 7 SE tomorrow. 11 NE on Saturday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 16 SE today, 6 SE tomorrow. 16 NW on Saturday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 18 SE today. 12 NE or SE tomorrow. 17 NE on Saturday.
Puerto Escondido: 13 SE today. 13 SW tomorrow and 14 NE on Saturday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby
islands. Less than 10 today from the SE. 10-12 tomorrow from the SW and 7 on Saturday from the NW.
The East Cape: around 10 knots for the 3-day forecast period. Today and tomorrow NE, Saturday NW.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan 12-14 for the 3-day forecast period. Today and tomorrow NE, Saturday SE.
Mexican Riviera, Mazatlan: 13 knot southerlies today and tomorrow and 15 from the NW on Saturday.
Puerto Vallarta: light NW for the 3-day forecast period.
Cabo Corrienties: light southerlies today and light NW for the next two days.
South of the cape: mostly light SW for the 3-day forecast period.
