.Ok looking down into the sea this morning I can see just a few whispys here and there. Looking out in the Pacific, just a few whispys out there as well. So looking over at the mainland. No thunderbumper activity in the Sonora area in the past 24 hours. So looking south now to the Mexican Riviera. No thunderbumper activity from Acapulco north. At Acapulco I can see a cell building and moving off shore to join a band of thumpers moving up from Central America. They are all headed in a West Northwest direction and then loosely connecting up with our latest tropical depression 14 echo which is currently at 16N 116W which is about 530 miles southwest of the cape right now. It is forecast to keep heading west and pose no threat to Baja except perhaps a slight chance of rain in the cape area.
There is a second low system southwest of the gulf of Tehuantepec that the National Hurricane Center is monitoring for any development. This is in that area that I mentioned earlier that the qscatt was showing 30-40 knot winds. They are forecasting that the threat is minimal; however should it develop its potential track would be right up the center of the sea. Well hopefully that won’t happen. It’s getting pretty late in the season.
Looking now over at the west coast of the peninsula for any fog that would impede any passage makers today. Nada. Just a light marine layer that will move off the coast as the sun comes up.
So looking now at the west coast of America. It’s the lull before the storm up there. Today is forecast to stay warm all over the western conus. Southern California and Sacramento valley cities will continue to see temperatures in the 90s today.
At the top of this image I can see two big honking lows making a move on the Pacific north coast. They should arrive tomorrow bringing rain from about Cape Mendocino north. This system developed over the central north Pacific from the remains of a typhoon that struck Taiwan on Sunday. So it looks like the Great Northwest is getting ready for its first strong winter storm. It will arrive in the Great Basin this weekend. We have that “lingering model uncertainty” thing as to how much and what will get wet in the southwest this morning. Tomorrow I’ll probably have a better idea.
But back down here in Baja we should be having a marvelous day. Light winds. Lots of sun. It does however look like the humidity will be with us until at least this weekend, so we should see the beer index around 115 today again today. Sounds like a good day to find your favorite watering hole and plop down under a fan. Enjoy it our fall is just around the corner.
73s y’all
