Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see the skies are clear in the Sea of Cortez and most of the Mexican Riviera. There is a small cell working right over Acapulco and several more working in the Gulf of Tehuantepec this morning.
Light SE winds are forecast for the Gulf through Wednesday morning then a short duration late season wind event is forecast to begin Wednesday evening into Thursday.
Not a lot of activity in the ITCZ/Monsoon trough this morning. Most of the thunderbumpers are close to shore around Guatemala this morning.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where building high pressure in the Pacific and will be moving on shore today and will be bringing hot and dry to the west coast. In the Great Northwest it will be warm and dry during the work week.
In northern California temperatures will inch up all week with around 100 on Friday.
In southern California they have the Santa Ana winds to contend with. The combination of gusterly Santa Ana winds hot Temperature and single digit humidities will bring extreme fire danger to the southland today. Red flag warning will remain in effect into mid week.
Looking now over to the southwest where strengthening high pressure will bring a strong warming trend through Saturday. They could see the 100 degree mark late in the week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence with high pressure in the Great Basin building into Wednesday it looks like we will be in for a 3-day blow.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: all from the NW. 24 today, 31 tomorrow and 27 on Wednesday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: all NW. 27 today, 31 tomorrow, and 27 again on Wednesday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 27-29 from the NW for the 3-day forecast period.
Puerto Escondido: 18-21 from the NW for the next 3 days.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. NE for the next 3 days. Today 15, tomorrow 13 and Wednesday 11.
La Paz: 14-16 from the NW for the next 3 days.
The East Cape: 16-19 from the NW for the 3-day forecast period.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan first half the low 20s, the second half the low to mid teens.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan: 15-17 from the SW for the next 3 days.
Puerto Vallarta to Cabo Corrienties: the low teens from the NW for the next 3 days.
South of the cape: Manzanillo today around 17 from the west, tomorrow and Wednesday the low teens from the SW. South of Manzanillo light SW breezes for the 3-day forecast period.
