.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that a few passing whispys passed over the central Sea yesterday and a mix of whispys and fluffys passed over the cape area. This morning there are just a few fluffy in that area however it looks like the cape region will be seeing mostly sunshine today.
Looking now over to the Mexican Riviera where that pesky moisture plume is now in it’s second week of sending scattered bands of clouds over the area. Early this morning a rather heavy band of clouds passed over from about Mazatlan to Cabo Corrienties. This band has now moved off to the east.
It looks like there will be cloudiness from Mazatlan south to Acapulco this morning then clearing or partial clearing this afternoon. We’ll see?
The ITCZ/monsoon trough is not quite so activity this morning with only moderate convections building along the zone.
Smooth sailing for anyone crossing the Gulf of Tehuantepec today with the winds forecast to be in the 10-12 knot ranges. These conditions should last until Saturday when the winds will pick up to the mid 20s.
That’s what’s going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the only weather on the west coast is in the Great Northwest. The rain and snow continue today in NW Oregon and all of Washington State.
They are now listing counties that are under flood advisories not just the rivers. This current Storm has dropped between 3 and 9 inches of rain so far.
Northern California will be sunny and warming up a bit today. Saturday is the next chance they have to see some rain. Along the coast today it will be very windy and inland breezy.
Southern California will also be sunny, dry and windy into the weekend.
Looking now over to the southwest where it will be sunny, dry and with a warming trend into the weekend.
Next week the long range forecast is for a series of systems to be moving through the Great Basin and bring with them the next chance of any rain for the southwest.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence today into the weekend look to be very pleasant with very moderate winds and lots of sunshine, at least for Baja. The Riviera will be at least partially overcast this morning.
Many sunrise temperatures were up a few degrees this morning however the afternoon temperatures will be about the same as yesterday and be in the low to mid 70s for the central Sea. The cape area mid to high 70s and the Riviera low to mid 80s today.

73s Y'all
