Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez is pretty much free of any clouds this morning.
South along the west coast of Mexico there are not any clouds even close to the coast this morning.
It looks like there will be a little activity in the Gulf of Tehuantepec starting late tomorrow with a strong cold front moving down the Gulf of Mexico. It looks like a brief Tehuantepecker is possible Thursday morning through Friday. We’ll see?
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where it looks like the entire west coast will be seeing sunshine today.
High pressure off the west coast of Oregon is keeping the STORM door well to the north and into British Columbia at least for the next couple of days. The Great Northwest could see some weather Friday into the weekend.
In northern California today it will be a bit windy. Building high pressure in Oregon is increasing the north/south gradient giving cause to gusts in the 35-45 knot ranges forecast for the Sacramento Valley today.
The gradient will relax Wednesday for lighter winds in the Valley.
In southern California it will be somewhat cooler today and tomorrow then warming trend into the weekend.
Looking now over to the southwest where a rather weak low will be moving into the southwest today and finally exiting to the east later in the week. There is a slight chance of some light showers in the White Mountains but no rain in the lower deserts. Despite the passing weak front with highs in the lower 80s across the deserts even warmer temperatures are expected by the weekend.
Well, that’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence most of the Sea will be seeing light to moderate southerlies today. Tomorrow the high pressure off the Oregon coast will dip into the Great Basin giving cause for tomorrow’s NW winds to be brisk to strong. With the exiting high on Thursday the winds in the Sea should back off below 20 knots on Thursday.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light SE today then around 20 Wednesday and Thursday from the NW.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: light SW today, around 23 from the NW on Wednesday and back to around 19 on Thursday from the NW
The Baja side of the central Sea: high teens today from the E or SE and then around 20 tomorrow from the NW and then back to the high teens again on Thursday.
Puerto Escondido: mid teens for the 3-day forecast period. Today SE then NE for the next two days.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Light SE today and Light NE for Wednesday and Thursday.
La Paz: light NE for the 3-day forecast period.
The East Cape: light NE today then low teen from the NW for Wednesday and Thursday.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan: Mazatlan to half way light NW. Half way north to Guaymas mid teens from the NW for the next 3 days.
Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan mid teens from the NW for the 3-day forecast period.
Puerto Vallarta: light NW for the next 3 days.
Cabo Corrienties: moderate NW today and tomorrow and then light SW on Thursday.
South of the cape: low to mid teens from the NW for the 3-day forecast period.
