3 DAY WINDS FORCAST ON THE WEBPAGE

The following is from my daily ham radio Report

Voice to Text……….
. Looking first down to the ITCZ this morning I can see a lot of convection all along 8 north. Streaming off this area of thunderbumper activity are plumes of clouds of varying moisture content. Some whispys will be seen in the Mazatlan to Puerta Vallarta area, and some denser clouds will be seen to the south of Manzanillo with the possibility of thunderbumper activity along the coast.
While I’m looking at the area where most of our hurricanes and himicanes start I wanted to mention that I still can’t find any source that is forecasting an Eastern Pacific Basin hurricane season. Several sources are discussing the Atlantic season and their studies are showing a near-average Atlantic hurricane season is on tap fro 2009 with 11 named storms, 5 hurricanes and 2 intense hurricanes. The Eastern Pacific Basin does not get a lot of press because these storms normally do not affect the U.S. I read the entire 33 page report and not a single mention of Pacific storms. We are sort of the step sister on the hurricane priority list
OK, back to Baja Looking now at the Sea of Cortez I can see some whispys in the far northern end of the Sea that have moved in from the Pacific. The rest of the Sea is pretty much cloud free this morning.
Looking over to the west coast of the Baja peninsula I can see a spotty marine layer, either low clouds or fog from Mag Bay north to southern California this morning. On site early bird reports are saying thick fog at San Juanico and Turtle Bay.
So looking north now to the West Coast of America where the main feature on this image is the circulation around the low sitting off the California coast this morning. As I mentioned earlier the low is currently stalled about 300 miles off the northern California coast. Several of the circulating lows have reached the coast and from San Francisco north to Portland it is either raining or forecast to rain today and for the next several days. This system is forecast to drift slowly toward the coast today then remain stationary just off the coast thru tomorrow, then move inland over central California on Friday.
This Pacific storm is moving much slower than originally forecast and is also weakening. The strong winds at night for the next several days has been downgraded to perhaps 20 knots in the far northern Sea. It currently does not look like the winds will reach the northern crossing. The strongest are now forecast for tomorrow and Friday night.
So it looks like this storm will not have as much affect on the Sea at originally forecast. Today we should see abundant sunshine. Temperatures in the high 80s in the north and high 90s in the south.

73s Y’all
