Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez is pretty much cloud free this morning.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico it looks like from around Puerto Vallarta south to around Manzanillo they will be seeing some high whispys all day.
Further south in the Gulf of Tehuantepec GALE warning have been posted for a short-lived wind event tomorrow into Sunday. Another late season cold front moving through the western Gulf of Mexico is the culprit. Meantime today should see light SE winds in the Gulf.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where off the Washington coast I can see a nice sized low swirling out there that is forecast to start to move toward the coast today inching the weakening low off to the east.
The Great Northwest will be the first to see any rain from this system tomorrow but as the low and associated cold front move down the coast this weekend first Oregon, then northern California will see light rain on Sunday.
The heat wave is over for the west as temperatures will drop as much as 15 degrees over the weekend for most west coast cities.
Southern California will start off the month with a traditional “Grey May” day with a thick marine layer hugging the coast but inland temperatures will be in the 90s but will cool off each day over the weekend.
Looking now over to the southwest where they can expect the high pressure to continue over the weekend providing clear skies and temperatures in the 100s over the weekend on the lower deserts. It will start to cool off on Monday as a now dry cold front approaches the southwest on Tuesday. No rain is associated with this system just some cooling and much lighter winds.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the 3-day blow is over and we can expect to see moderate NE for the next two days then on Sunday the winds in the Sea will have a southern flavor.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: 15 NW today, tomorrow light NE and on Sunday around 15 from the SE.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 22 SW today, light SW tomorrow and around 15 on Sunday from the SE.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 17 today from the NW, 12 tomorrow from the NE and on Sunday 19 from the SE.
Puerto Escondido: 12 NE today, 15 SE tomorrow and 17 SE on Sunday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light winds in the ballpark 10 knot ranges for the 3-day forecast period. Today NE, tomorrow and Sunday SE.
The East Cape: around 14 today from the NW then light SE for the next two days.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan: The low to mid teens from the SE or SW for the next 3 days.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan the mid teens from the SW for the 3-day forecast period.
Puerto Vallarta light NW for the next 3 days.
Cabo Corrienties: light NW today and tomorrow and light SW on Sunday.
South of the cape mostly light SW for the next 3 days.
