.Looking out into the Eastern Pacific Basin this morning it looks like that area of convection along the ITCZ/monsoon that has been pumping out clouds for over a week now is finally run its course.
This morning and possibly into the afternoon it looks like Baja and the Riviera will still see some cloudiness but sunshine is on the way for later today and tomorrow just in time for the big Art Show being held here at el Burro Cove. Not only that the winds have also decided to cooperate and be in the gentle ranges tomorrow afternoon.
Looking south to the cape area they are still seeing some dark bottomed clouds pass over this morning but by this afternoon they too will be seeing sunshine.
Looking over to the Mexican Riviera this morning and as far south as Acapulco they will be seeing overcast skies this morning and clearing this afternoon.
Looking at bit further south to the Tehuantepec where high pressure across the Gulf of Mexico continue to produce a tight gradient through the Tehuantepec isthmus producing the Gale force winds in the Tehuantepec that are forecast to continue into Monday.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where at the very top of this image I can see the next Storm to inundate British Columbia and the great northwest moving down the British Columbia coast. This very cold system will bring snow to the streets of Seattle and Portland today.
As it moves inland into the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia Places like Penticton will see overnight temperatures in the low teens and snow flurries all week.
Northern California will stay dry into mid week then it looks like there is a good possibility that the Storm window will open for northern California. Rain is forecast for Wednesday.
Southern California will see increasing clouds today from that low swirling off the southern California/northern Baja coast. It is forecast to start moving ashore tomorrow without much fanfair. Ensenada is forecasting drizzle and San Diego just a hint of some sprinkles.
Looking now over to the southwest where today they will be seeing dry conditions and slightly above normal temperatures. This will continue into next weekend.
That low will arrive later tonight and Sunday in a weakened state and quickly move east into New Mexico. It may bring some rain and very high elevation snow as it passes through Arizona. Best chance is later tonight.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the Sea will have moderate NW winds today and then tomorrow and Monday light to very moderate NW winds. That along with mucho sunshine should promise a very pleasant weekend.
