.Looking down into the Sea this morning it looks like the Sea has been pretty much cloud free for the past 24 hours.
Even the cape area has seen a decreased amount of whispys pass over. This morning it looks like the last of the broken, scattered band of debris clouds will be just kissing of the cape. This band is rather thick and the cape could see some drizzle from it. The next band looks like it is about a day away. So Sunshine for the cape later this morning.
Looking now along the Mexican Riviera it looks like the coast is clear south to just south of Acapulco. From there south all along the coast there is fairly heavy thunderbumper activity.
Inside the Gulf of Tehuantepec there have been several large squalls develop and then move out of the Gulf into the Pacific. Currently it is partially cloudy over the Gulf and the isthmus.
Looking now at the ITCZ where there is a lot of embedded convection and the heaviest is off the Central American Coast this morning. There is another flair out about 140. This one looks like it could be sending some whispys toward the cape by tomorrow.
We have a clean bill of health from the National Hurricane Center for the next 48 hours so looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image I can see rain falling in Seattle and Portland this morning and the forecast is for it to continue all week.
Northern California will be affected by an upper level low that is currently off the Washington coast. It will drop into the Great Basin tonight and in its wake weak high pressure will develop over the west coast. It won’t last long as a big honk’n low descends from the Gulf of Alaska on Wednesday. Along with rain it will be bringing cooler temperatures.
Southern California has perhaps a drizzle in their forecast for today and as these systems move through to the north it will be gusterly all week. A number of locations will be posting high wind advisories today. Also May Grey has started in earnest this week. The fog bank off the southern California coast is 3400 feet this morning and clouds are filling in back to the mountains.
Looking now over into the southwest where lows to the north of them will give cause to gusterly conditions until Wednesday when high pressure is forecast to fill in the western conus. This should warm things up in the southern California and Arizona deserts and Arizona will be seeing temperatures in the 100 degree ranges late in the week into next weekend.
Back on this side of the fence it looks like another great May day. It looks like the entire Sea, with the exception of the East Cape, will see light to moderate southerlies today. The East Cape very light northerly winds this afternoon.
