Looking down into the Eastern Pacific basin there are two items of interest out there this morning. The counter clockwise swirl of a low about 700 miles west of the international border that will be making it’s way into central California today and a very wet tropical plume.
Both of them bring a threat of rain with them. I’ll discuss the low in a minute first this long moisture plume that emanates from the western Pacific south of Hawaii and is taking dead aim on central Baja this morning. There is considerable shower activity within the plume and this image is showing very dark bottomed clouds passing over central Baja this morning with the heaviest dark bands from around San Francisquito Bay to Santa Rosalia. This image is also showed the cape region to be to the south of the plume and is pretty much cloud free at this time.
This plume is long and deep and it will most likely be with us for a couple of days.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico where I can’t see any clouds along the coast at all this morning.
Further south the EarthWind Map is showing around 20 knots of winds moving NW out of the Gulf of Tehuantepec this morning as that two-day Tehuantepecker winds down. The next round of gap winds to GALE force may be next Tuesday night into Wednesday. We’ll see?
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence this weekend the winds will pick up a bit and the Temperature will cool down some however today should be very pleasant.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: mid teens from the SE. Tomorrow around 25 from the SW and on Sunday 11 from the SE.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: light SE today then 19 from the NW tomorrow and around 10 on Sunday from the NW.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 15-18 for today and the weekend. Today from the SE, tomorrow NW and Sunday NE.
Puerto Escondido: 13 today from the SE, 15 tomorrow NE and then 10 from the NE on Sunday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light NW for the 3-day forecast period.
East Cape: light NE today, around 13 tomorrow from the NW and then around 10 from the NE again on Sunday.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan mostly mid teens from the NW for the next three days.
Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan: ballpark 16-17 knots for the next 3 days. Today west, tomorrow SW and Sunday NW.
Puerto Vallarta to Cabo Corrienties: 11-13 from the NW for the 3-day forecast period.
