Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the skies are again clear over the Sea of Cortez.
Looking south to along the west coast of Mexico it looks like a thin moisture plume is passing over from around Manzanillo to Zihuatanejo this morning. The rest of the Mexican Riviera to the north is pretty much cloud free.
Further south I don’t know if these late season cold fronts moving through the western Gulf of Mexico are any indication of more out of the ordinary stuff to come this summer. We’ll see?
This morning GALE warnings have been posted for the Gulf of Tehuantepec with winds reaching minimal GALE force by this afternoon. This brief wind event should end late tomorrow morning. In the duration seas will build to as high as14 feet.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where off the coast of Washington I can see a 1000 low swirling off the coast. It’s expected to start to move inland today. The associated cold front will be bringing rainy weather to Washington, Oregon and northern California while high elevation snow is forecast for the Washington Cascades, the Siskiyous and the northern Sierras over the weekend.
In northern California a shower threat will continue over the mountains Tuesday. Warmer temperatures on tap for Wednesday and Thursday.
In southern California it will be another very warm day then it will turn colder on Sunday through Tuesday as that low sags down the coast. The trough will move east on Wednesday followed by a warming trend into the weekend.
All temperatures on the west coast will plummet: ballpark 10-15 degrees as this cold front moves through.
Looking now over to the southwest where high pressure over the region will maintain dry conditions with warmer temperatures on tap for this weekend. That low (now dry) will move east into Arizona around the middle of next week. Cooling things down into the weekend.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence mostly light NE today, moderate SE tomorrow and moderate NE on Monday. It looks like a very nice weekend for the LoretoFest with temperatures in the 90s and very moderate southerlies.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: very light today from the NE. 16-17 knots from the SE or SW on Sunday and Monday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: light SE today, around 15 tomorrow from the SE and on Monday very light SW.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 13 today from the east, 18 tomorrow from the SE and on Monday 16 from the NE.
Puerto Escondido: the LoretoFest: the mid teens from the SE for the 3-day forecast period.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Less than 10 for the 3-day forecast period, mostly with a southern flavor.
The East Cape: light NE today, light SE tomorrow then around 14 from the NE on Monday.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan: it looks like the mid teens from the SW of the next 3 days.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan: 15-17 from the SW for the 3-day forecast period.
Puerto Vallarta: 11-12 knots from the NW for the next 3 days.
Cabo Corrienties: light SW today and tomorrow and around 14 on Monday from the NW.
South of Cabo Corrienties mostly light SW breezes for the 3-day forecast period.
