.Looking down into the Sea this morning with both the IR images and the water vapor images I can see that from southern California and southwest Arizona south it is clear and very dry all the way down to Central America. No clouds of any kind are visible to me in these images.
That goes of the Mexican Riviera as well.
Looking now at the Tehuantepec where we will have a Tehuantepecker brewing all weekend. This morning’s 30 knot winds will increase to about 50 knots tonight and tomorrow and will diminish to gale force winds later Friday and persist into the weekend.
Looking now along the ITCZ which is about 8 north this morning I can see a long moisture plume moving out of the western Pacific stretching across the Eastern Pacific Basin to the Gulf of Alaska. This is feeding tropical moisture into that low that is developing there this morning.
That is it for our hood so looking north again to the west coast of America where for the most part it is unseasonable hot and dry. Southern California will be in the low 90s today. More record highs are likely to fall today.
The dome of high pressure is forecast to start to weaken tomorrow as a series of rather weak lows will move in from the Pacific over the weekend and early next week.
For the Great Northwest that low in the Gulf of Alaska will start its southward trek today and bring rain to the area this weekend.
For the southwest the high pressure will weaken but remain over the area until about the middle of next week. The region will remain warm and dry throughout the weekend. It will probably be a bit gusterly this afternoon with winds from the east for most of Arizona.
Back down here in Baja I feel that I’m perched precariously on the horns of a dilemma. None of the models agree with the strength of the winds along the west coast of Mexico today. As I mentioned earlier in the surface bar report I have decided to tweak the east winds along the Sonoran coast to reflect the higher values.
These strong east winds may or may not occur but my singular objective in my weather reports is to provide you with information that YOU can make intelligent decisions with to make your cruising experience more enjoyable.
That being said, the Baja side of the Sea of Cortez to about Concepcion Bay should see light to moderate southerlies today. Puerto Escondido south should see light northerlies today.
Lots of sun today with the daytime highs still giving us spring or summer-like conditions. Daytime highs along the Sonoran coast will be in the mid to high 90s today and the Baja coast mid to high 80s.
Finally this morning, a friend of mine on the beach wanted to know what the temp was at his home in Butte Montana this morning. Well Pat, it was 27 there this morning and should warm up to 67 today. Aren’t you glad you are here in Baja?

Don't chisel these forecasts in stone. This is an Amateur Endeavor. They, however, are normally very close.
