.Taking a god’s eye look down into the sea this morning with the satellite in the animated mode. I can see that the fragmented and thin Pineapple Express started to fill in solid late yesterday afternoon and has been providing a blanket of clouds over most of the Baja peninsula all night. It looks like tit will continue to be overcast most of the day with clearing in the late afternoon or evening hours.
The extremes are about la bay to the cape with the heaviest concentration of clouds is directly over Baja Concepcion. Some of these will have dark bottoms and a sprinkle or two is not out of the question.
The Riviera should be pretty much cloud free today.
Looking south now to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where hurricane force winds blew across the Tehuantepec isthmus yesterday. This morning the Tehuantepecker continues but with much less velocity. Scattermeter showed 30-40 know winds there at 3am and the winds are forecast to drop below Strom Force around dark this evening. Sea heights will remain around 16 ft.
Very unusual to have a Tehuantepecker this late in the season.
Ok, moving over to the west coast of the Baja peninsula where I can’t see any signs of a marine layer along the entire coast.
So looking now up north to the West Coast of America where it is raining from San Diego to Portland this morning. This weather-maker low has moved inland and is over Sacramento this morning and will move over into the Great Basin later today bring wide spread showers throughout the basin. It will exit to the east on Thursday.
A potentially wetter storm system is on the horizon for Arizona and southwest California by the weekend. This low pressure system will slide southwest along the California coast Thursday and Friday before swinging northeast through Arizona late Friday and Saturday. Sounds right now like a good chance of showers for the southwest.
Back down here all sunrise Temperature was up this morning, some as much as 12 degrees. Here yesterday my sunrise Temperature was 78, this morning it was 91 degrees.
