Satellite / Summary Report from this mornings Ham Radio Forecast
:
Voice to Text……….

Before looking at the satellite images I walked out on the porch and looked out at the bay. Lots of thunderbumpers in the area that have black bottoms. Winds gusting 20-25 from the south-southeast. I’m sure folks all around the bay will tell me they had a bit of rain, but the rain normally missed the cove. I’m not sure what that’s all about.
Back inside my palapa and using the satellites to look down into the sea this morning. I can see that a large cell developed last night over on the Sonoran coast and then build and moved out into the sea this morning. It is continuing to build and it now stretches from perhaps 100 miles inland in Sonora to across the Baja peninsula into the Pacific Ocean. It’s pretty much right between Puerto Escondido and Concepcion bay right now.
There is another large cell that the southern extreme is La Paz and the northern extreme meets up with this other cell that has crossed over from the mainland. This cell completely covers the peninsula and goes out well into the Pacific. And then there are several other smaller cells that sort of fill in the area so from about the Northern crossing to the Southern crossing it is pretty much one big honking thunderbumper. I noted that San Carlos had 28K gusts last night between 10 and midnight but with no rain accumulations.
Lots of moisture in the air so we will probably see a lot more thunderbumper activity this afternoon. That’s the central and southern sea. The northern sea. The summer hunting grounds looks like they will not even be aware of all this stuff going on to the south. That’s probably why they are there.
Ok back to the cape. We have tropical storm Lowell that is forecast to hook a hard right this morning and the current model has him making landfall tomorrow at Mag Bay and crossing the peninsula in a northeasterly trek exiting at Puerto Escondido Thursday morning. Lowell must not be reading these forecasts because each new forecast has Lowell exiting a bit further to the north. Stay tuned.
Ok moving on with the forecast this morning. The west coast of the Baja peninsula will have a heavy marine layer from Turtle Bay to la la land this morning.
Taking a quick look at the rest of the west coast of America. That low over California is sucking in cool air and moisture from the pacific. Cooling things off up there and keeping the door open for the monsoon in the Southwest. Actually I can see that most of the moisture moving up from Mexico is crossing over into Texas this morning. Arizona and New Mexico have a few clouds but the lions’ share is over Texas.
Back down here today I have to get out my chicken bones and incense to figure out what is going to happen in the central and southern sea today. Shaking the chicken bones says: Last night cells in the central sea will burn off with the morning sun and with all the moisture in the air we will probably have numerous thunderbumper activity this afternoon. However sometimes they are wrong. For the southern sea. Looking out at tropical storm Lowell: The northwest portion of his clockwise rotation is spinning off a lot of convection. So I’m thinking that the cape area will be seeing mostly a canopy of clouds today with numerous opportunities for a shower or two. Don’t chisel this cape forecast in stone, like them chicken bones, sometimes I’m wrong.

Don't chisel these wind forecasts in stone. This is an amateur Endeavour. They, however, are normally very close.
