Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see this quite broad moisture plume that has taken aim on the Baja peninsula is about 800 miles wide this morning. Stretching from the bay of LA to La Paz. This morning there is a heavy mix of fluffys below the higher whispys. There could be some patches of sun but it looks like we will be looking at overcast skies all day.
Looking now south to the west coast of Mexico where the coast is clear well into Central America this morning.
There will be a short lived Tehuantepecker forecast to begin near daybreak this morning. During the day today the winds will be in the 20-25 knot ranges and increase to 20-30 during the night tonight. The winds will start to slacken tomorrow afternoon with winds less than 20 and seas in the 4-6 foot ranges.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where cool unstable air over western Washington will keep showers in their forecast for the remainder of the week.
Oregon and northern California will remain seasonally warm and dry with the next chance of any rain will come about the center of next week…maybe?
In southern California it will be fair and cooler for the next several days. It will also be breezy in the mountains and deserts. High pressure will return next week for warmer weather Monday and Tuesday then a STORM door could open for California and the southland. Well see?
Looking over to the south west where in this image I can see some cloudiness right along the Fence and the northern portion of the state is also overcast this morning. The rest including the Tucson area is clear this morning. It should remain clear through early next week. Above normal temperatures will continue with highs generally from 80 to 85 degrees across the lower deserts.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the moderate winds will continue in the Sea for at least the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: Light east winds today. Low teens tomorrow from the south then less than 10 from the SE on Saturday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: the mid teens from the NW today. Light southerlies tomorrow and then low teens again on Saturday from the NW.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 14-16 from the NE for the next 3 days.
About the same for Puerto Escondido with tomorrow possibly seeing some light southerlies.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Light NE today. Light NW tomorrow and light NE again on Saturday.
La Paz: around 12 today from the NW, very light winds tomorrow from the NW and then on Saturday 11 from the NE.
The East Cape: 18 today NW, less than 10 tomorrow from the NE and then on Saturday 15 from the NW.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan the mid to high teens today from the NW then tomorrow and Saturday low teens from the NW.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan today around 18 from the NW. Around 14 tomorrow from the SW and on Saturday 16 from the west.
Puerto Vallarta to Cabo Corrienties light NW for the next 3 days.
South of Cabo Corrienties mostly light SW for the 3-day forecast period.
