Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez is pretty much cloud free this morning.
Looking south to along the west coast of Mexico this image is showing no clouds along the west coast of Mexico this morning.
There is still a Gale brewing in the Gulf of Tehuantepec. Winds will continue to be in the 30-40 knot ranges until tomorrow evening then be just below advisory levels into Tuesday. A strong plume extends out from the Gulf in the Eastern Pacific basin several hundred miles with seas running around 8 ft with 20-30 knot winds.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where Washington and Oregon can expect rain through the weekend into early next week.
In northern California rain and Sierra snow down to around 5000 feet for this first storm moving in today into the weekend. There will be several mover pulses that come through next week bringing more rain and more mountain snow.
In southern California coastal low clouds and fog will be spreading farther into the valleys along with gusterly west winds in the mountains and deserts today. For Tuesday into early Thursday a pair of Pacific lows will bring more cooling...chances for rain and gusterly west winds again in the mountains and deserts. Dry and a little warmer for Friday then another chance of rain around Saturday.
Looking now over to the desert southwest where unusually warm weather will persist the next several days with record highs likely again this afternoon. Tucson should see a high this afternoon of around 92. A change in the weather pattern will take place during the middle of the week with a brief cooling trend and an opportunity for some light rain.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of he Fence more pleasant weather in store for the weekend with many locations seeing southerly winds.
Temperature-wise: many locations are seeing the high 80s/low 90 over the weekend. By mid next week the temperatures are expected to drop 10-15 degrees. Thursday could see 79 here in the cove, that will be down from around 92 today.
Here are the wind details for the 3-Day Forecast period.
The northern Sea, Sonoran side: light SW today, around 19 tomorrow from the SW and light SW on Tuesday.
The northern Sea, Baja side: light NE today then light SW for the next two days.
The central sea, Guaymas area: light SW today and tomorrow and the mid teens from the SW on Tuesday.
The central sea Baja side: the low teens or lighter from the NE for the 3-Day Forecast period.
Puerto Escondito: light SW today then light NW for the next two days.
La Paz: the low teens from the SW today then light NW for the next 2 days.
The San Lorenzo channel and the nearby islands: light SW today then light NW for the next two days.
East Cape: light NE for the 3-Day Forecast period.
The Mexican Riviera, Mazatlan: light SW for the 3-Day Forecast period.
