The following is from my daily ham radio Report

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can not see any clouds. All the webcams both in the northern and southern Sea as well as the cape and west cape were showing clear skies.
Looking along the Mexican Riviera I can’t see any clouds either. At the southwest side of the Gulf of Tehuantepec I can see there has been some thunderbumper activity all night and there is a nice thumper in that area right now.
Yesterday and last night there has been a cold front moving through the SW Gulf of Mexico that gave cause to near gale force winds in the Gulf that will continue through today diminishing to less than 20K by tonight. I understand that these short-lived wind events are typical of spring time. I’m not aware of an official advisory for this event though.
Looking now at the ITCZ I can see there is a bit more convection along the zone this morning and it is pumping out a broad plume of clouds into the Eastern Pacific Basin between here and Hawaii this morning.
That’s if for down here. Looking north now to the west coast of America where in every city along the coast were wordings such as “Breezy”, “Windy”, “Strong Onshore winds”, “Small Craft Advisories”, were in their forecast for the next couple of days.
As I mentioned in the Surface Bar Report there is a 1036 high off the California coast and the Great Basin is ballpark 1000. That gradient is what will be causing these winds.
In general California will be dry. The southwest will be dryer with fire danger looming with low humidity and high winds forecast.
Enjoy today because it looks like the Sea of Cortez will be having a 4-day blow starting tomorrow. Not all of those days will be strong winds. It will depend on where you are. This is what the models are showing right now. As you know I normally only go out 3 days, but the models have been fairly consistent for this wind event so I’m including Tuesday.
Max winds in the northern Sea:
Saturday: 28 Knots
Sunday: 18 Knots
Monday & Tuesday 27 knots

Max winds in the central Sea:
Saturday: 20 knots
Sunday: 25 knots
Monday: 30 Knots
Tuesday: 20 knots
For the Loreto Fest starting today it will be very pleasant today.
Saturday and Sunday both around 20 knots in the afternoon.
This wind event looks like it will be pretty much confined to the northern and central Sea with the southern Sea not seeing much more than 16 knots during this forecast period. La Paz could be an exception with breezy conditions forecast for Sunday, say up to 22 knots. They will probably see Coromuels in about the same velocity during the night.
73s Y'all
