.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that with the exception of a few whispys passing over the central Sea late yesterday the skies have been clear for the past 24 hours.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where early yesterday there was some cloudiness from around Manzanillo south that band of clouds have moved further south and pretty much dissipated. Well I can see a few whispys around Zihuatanejo and Manzanillo but that’s it.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific Basin along the ITCZ/monsoon trough I can see there is not a lot of activity along the zone this morning as has been for the past couple of days.
Looking now at the Tehuantepec where the southern winds continue to be in the very moderate ranges, say 10-15.
That what is going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where at the very top of this image as well as the water vapor imagery I can see a well defined low spiraling in the western Gulf of Alaska.
This system will bring more rain and high elevation snow to Washington, Oregon today and northern California starting tomorrow. The Lake Tahoe area is forecast to have light snow tomorrow.
Central California will remain dry.
Looking south to southern California where high pressure will continue to bring warm and dry weather to the southland. That trough of low pressure to the north will bring some cooling later in the week then a warming trend will return this weekend as high pressure rebuilds over the area.
Looking now over to the southwest where it will continue to be warm and dry into the upcoming weekend. High pressure will be rebuilding over the region in the wake of that low that passed to the north yesterday.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the winds have been diminishing during the night and may not meet the forecast values for this afternoon for the central Sea. It looks to me that they will be in the moderate ranges with the Sonoran coast around Guaymas on the high end but less than 20. We’ll see?
The southern Sea will be in the moderate ranges today and further diminish tomorrow. The only fly in the ointment could be the pressure gradient between the high out in the Pacific and the low over the mainland. This could make the winds a bit stronger in the southern crossing this morning. That high is forecast to diminish later this morning.
I noted that all the sunrise temperatures were down a few degrees this morning from the day before and the winds kept the daytime highs a bit lower yesterday as well. Today we should see the highs inching back toward the 80 degree marks again.
So lots of sun, and moderate winds today. Sounds like spring is on the way.

Of note: Here at El Burro Cove normally at this time during Semana Santa (Easter week) this beach has been packed the families here for the week. This year there are just a couple of families here. Very strange. I’m wondering if it will fill in later in the week. We’ll see?

73s Y'all.
