.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that there has been a few mostly whispys passing over central and southern Baja in the past 24 hours, mostly around the cape.
This morning this Sea looks to be clear of any clouds.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera I can see the moisture plume that has been with us for over a week now is very scattered this morning and I can’t see any hot cells in the broad plume. I looks to me that from the cape and the southern crossing south to around Manzanillo will be seeing mostly sunshine this morning and later today the plume becomes a bit thicker and more the Riviera should see more cloudiness.
Not a lot going on in the Gulf of Tehuantepec this morning. Light to moderate winds for the 3-day forecast period with the seas flattening out a crossing window should open today into the weekend.
Looking over at the ITCZ/monsoon trough I can see that the area that has had all that building convection has moved west from around 115 out to around 125-130 and most of the moisture from these clouds dries out before arriving along the Riviera. Viola, no showers in today’s forecast.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image I can see that the Storm door is wide open for the Great Northwest and British Columbia this morning. More rain, more snow and more flooding. Flood warning have been issued for the Snoqualmie River near carnation Washington.
High pressure off the California coast is keeping the Storm track to the north of the California/Oregon border today. Northern California is forecast to be dry and a bit warmer into the weekend.
In Southern California a warming trend will continue today as high pressure remains over the region through Wednesday. On Thursday the high pressure is forecast to shift back into the Pacific cooling things back down and bringing breezy conditions to the southland.
Looking now over to the southwest where it will continue to be dry with above normal daytime temperatures through Saturday. Early next week a low is forecast drop down from the north.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the northern end of the Sea will be gusterly today with 20+ knot winds. The central Sea the NW winds will be approaching 20 Knots. The southern Sea just moderate winds. Tomorrow and Friday look to be very pleasant wind-wise. Tomorrow’s forecast for southern winds has been dropped and in the forecast now is for NE or NW winds in the Sea tomorrow. They will be in the very moderate ranges.
Temperatures will continue to be in the low to mid 70s in the central Sea. Mid 70s in the southern Sea. The Riviera finally under some sunshine will be in the mid to low 80s today.

73s Y'all
