3 DAY WINDS FORCAST ON THE WEBPAGE

The following is from my daily ham radio Report

Voice to Text……….
.Well looking down into the sea this morning first in the 24 hour animated mode. I can see the central sea started to see some thicker clouds later in the afternoon.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific Basin this morning there is an area off to the west of Baja about a 1000 miles square that is full of broken and scattered multi level clouds. The water vapor imagery is showing some hot spots with heavy moisture content. This broad band of clouds is moving sort of southeast with the northern extreme about San Franciscito bay and the southern somewhere around the cape.
As this band moves ashore today in the central and southern sea you can expect to see, some sun, some whispys, some fluffys and some fluffys with dark bottoms probably as far south as Puerta Vallarta today. This is a mixed bag of clouds out there.
Ok that’s it for the sky conditions, so looking south for gap winds. Winds to 20-25 are located in the Gulf of Tehuantepec and north winds to 20 knots are located over the Gulf of Panama today.
Looking now over to the west coast of the Baja peninsula I can’t see any signs of a marine layer along the Baja coast. I can see a shallow marine layer off the southern California coast this morning.
So looking now north to the West Coast of America where that late season cold system that brought rain and snow to the west coast has moved off to the east and is now getting ready to exit the Great Basin. It’s well to the north of the 4 corners, but most of the basin is experiencing a mix of light rain and light snow showers this morning. Another system will affect the basin tomorrow and a stronger system will drop down Wednesday into Thursday. Spring has not quite sprung the Great Basin.
Looking to the south, the southwest will be cool and breezy today for pretty much the rest of the week. We will have to wait until this weekend will see temperatures on the rise again for the southwest and down here in paradise.
…………..
Today it looks like the wind event here in the sea will not be quite as strong as advertized. The northern sea will see the strongest winds on the mainland side to about 23 knots.
The central sea, again the mainland side will see the strongest winds in the 30 knot ranges and on the Baja side about 25 knots should be about max.
The southern sea will see max northwesterlys in the 16-18 knot ranges today.
Here in my palapa I have been watching the winds rise since about 4am with the gusts getting stronger and stronger. A few minutes ago there was a gust to 20 from the northwest.
So today it will be a little gusterly with some cloudyness over the central and southern sea.
And it looks like the rest of the week we will have a lot less wind but it will be a tad gusterly for the northern and central sea. It will also be a tad cooler for the rest of the week. We should see spring, spring back by this weekend.
