.Looking down into the Sea this morning with this image in the 24 hour loop it is not showing any cloudiness in the Sea.
Looking now over to the Mexican Riviera where it looks like they had mostly sunshine yesterday. There were a few passing whispys pass over during the night but today looks like an even better solar day. The only cloudiness I can see is from Zihuatanejo south to around Acapulco this morning.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific Basin along the ITCZ/monsoon trough I can see there a number of large hot spots with heavy thunderbumper activity between 110 and 125W but the clouds are not drifting north just a little east.
Looking back at the Gulf of Tehuantepec where the pressure gradient between the western Gulf of Mexico and the Gulf of Tehuantepec have winds whistling through the Chivela pass this morning increasing to Gale force by this afternoon and peaking around 40 knots this afternoon before diminishing below Gale force by tomorrow afternoon. Gale Advisories have been posted.
So with the exception of this Tehuantepecker the Sea and the Mexican Riviera look like they will be having a beautiful day with lots of sun and moderate winds.
That about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image a big honk’n low and associated cold front will be bringing heavy rain this weekend and then Monday it looks like the streets of both Portland and Seattle will have snow.
Sunday into Wednesday there will be a series of cold lows that move into both Northern and southern California. The first one will arrive in northern California Sunday morning bringing a chance of some light rain and much colder temperatures. A second one will arrive on Wednesday.
Looking at southern California where a strong, and rather dry very cold trough of low pressure will dig across the region through Monday night bringing very cold air and only a chance of rain to the low lands. The snow level will drop to around 2500 feet so north south traffic along the Grapevine will be affected.
The major effect of this Storm will be the damaging southwest and west winds in the mountains and deserts. Gusts up to 75 mph will be possible over the windier mountain ranges and deserts slopes from tomorrow night through Monday night.
Looking now over to the southwest where they can expect dry conditions with well above normal daytime temperatures this weekend.
A low pressure system will drop down from the Great Basin and move across the region early next week bringing cooler temperatures and gustery winds. Monday could see a chance of some showers mostly in the higher elevations. It will be cold until Wednesday when this system exits to the east then high pressure will return bringing dry conditions and back to normal daytime temperatures.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence we can expect to see very pleasant conditions all weekend.
Temperatures today about like yesterday except for along the Riviera where it should be a few degrees cooler than yesterday.
The Sea of Cortez should be in the low to mid 70s today.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that for the past 24 hours this Sea has been pretty much cloud free. The cape area has some passing clouds yesterday morning but by the afternoon all of Baja was seeing sunshine.
Looking now over to the Mexican Riviera that moisture plume that has been bringing cloudiness to most of the Riviera for over a week has finally weakened, narrowed and this morning the plume is made up of widely scattered bands of what look like light mix of fluffys and whispys from around Cabo Corrienties south to Zihuatanejo. North of Cabo Corrienties sunshine today. South of Cabo Corrienties a good mix of sunshine and some cloudiness.
Looking now to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where the crossing window will be closing today with the arrival of a Tehuantepecker tomorrow. Gale force advisories have been posted starting tomorrow afternoon into Sunday.
Looking at the ITCZ/monsoon trough this morning I can see that along the zone there is only a few spots of moderate convection building this morning. One of these around 120W is the one that is producing the moisture plume that is drifting first north then east toward the Mexican Riviera.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where the eye is drawn to a big honk’n low approaching the Great Northwest this morning.
The state of Washington has been issuing both Flood Advisories and Flood Warnings for the past several days for numerous rivers throughout the state.
This very cold front will arrive this afternoon and has the potential to bring heavy wet snowfall and variable snow accumulations to the Cascades. The coastal ranges will get a mix of both rain and snow. Snow levels will drop to around 1000 feet.
This system will pass through by Sunday morning however rain and snow are forecast to last well into the upcoming week.
With the Storm track well to the north, northern California under high pressure, will be seeing abundant sunshine into the weekend and into next week. The next chance of any rain to Northern California could be about mid week.
Looking south to southern California where the bar is around 1013. The bar over the Nevada Plateau is around 1027 and that is giving cause to some gusterly conditions in the southland today.
Over the weekend that low off the southern California coast will slowly migrate east and perhaps bring some light showers to the mountains and the California deserts into Monday. Monday another fast moving low is forecast to move through southern California and then Tuesday and Wednesday high pressure will rebuild and bring clear skies and cool weather.
Looking now over to the southwest where high pressure aloft will remain centered to the west resulting in dry conditions and above normal daytime highs through Sunday.
On Sunday a low system will drop southward down from the Pacific Northwest into the western Great Basin on Monday. As the low moves across the region Monday and Tuesday the southwest can expect to see in increase in the winds and much cooler temperatures. The higher elevations in the White Mountains will most likely see some light snow accumulations as the system passes.
The rest of the week should be dry with near normal temperatures.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the Riviera will finally be seeing some sunshine. All of Baja will see abundant sunshine today. Moderate winds are forecast for the 3-day forecast period.
Temperatures will be in the mid 70s again today for most of the Sea. The Riviera in the mid 80s.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that a few passing whispys passed over the central Sea yesterday and a mix of whispys and fluffys passed over the cape area. This morning there are just a few fluffy in that area however it looks like the cape region will be seeing mostly sunshine today.
Looking now over to the Mexican Riviera where that pesky moisture plume is now in it’s second week of sending scattered bands of clouds over the area. Early this morning a rather heavy band of clouds passed over from about Mazatlan to Cabo Corrienties. This band has now moved off to the east.
It looks like there will be cloudiness from Mazatlan south to Acapulco this morning then clearing or partial clearing this afternoon. We’ll see?
The ITCZ/monsoon trough is not quite so activity this morning with only moderate convections building along the zone.
Smooth sailing for anyone crossing the Gulf of Tehuantepec today with the winds forecast to be in the 10-12 knot ranges. These conditions should last until Saturday when the winds will pick up to the mid 20s.
That’s what’s going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the only weather on the west coast is in the Great Northwest. The rain and snow continue today in NW Oregon and all of Washington State.
They are now listing counties that are under flood advisories not just the rivers. This current Storm has dropped between 3 and 9 inches of rain so far.
Northern California will be sunny and warming up a bit today. Saturday is the next chance they have to see some rain. Along the coast today it will be very windy and inland breezy.
Southern California will also be sunny, dry and windy into the weekend.
Looking now over to the southwest where it will be sunny, dry and with a warming trend into the weekend.
Next week the long range forecast is for a series of systems to be moving through the Great Basin and bring with them the next chance of any rain for the southwest.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence today into the weekend look to be very pleasant with very moderate winds and lots of sunshine, at least for Baja. The Riviera will be at least partially overcast this morning.
Many sunrise temperatures were up a few degrees this morning however the afternoon temperatures will be about the same as yesterday and be in the low to mid 70s for the central Sea. The cape area mid to high 70s and the Riviera low to mid 80s today.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that there has been a few mostly whispys passing over central and southern Baja in the past 24 hours, mostly around the cape.
This morning this Sea looks to be clear of any clouds.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera I can see the moisture plume that has been with us for over a week now is very scattered this morning and I can’t see any hot cells in the broad plume. I looks to me that from the cape and the southern crossing south to around Manzanillo will be seeing mostly sunshine this morning and later today the plume becomes a bit thicker and more the Riviera should see more cloudiness.
Not a lot going on in the Gulf of Tehuantepec this morning. Light to moderate winds for the 3-day forecast period with the seas flattening out a crossing window should open today into the weekend.
Looking over at the ITCZ/monsoon trough I can see that the area that has had all that building convection has moved west from around 115 out to around 125-130 and most of the moisture from these clouds dries out before arriving along the Riviera. Viola, no showers in today’s forecast.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image I can see that the Storm door is wide open for the Great Northwest and British Columbia this morning. More rain, more snow and more flooding. Flood warning have been issued for the Snoqualmie River near carnation Washington.
High pressure off the California coast is keeping the Storm track to the north of the California/Oregon border today. Northern California is forecast to be dry and a bit warmer into the weekend.
In Southern California a warming trend will continue today as high pressure remains over the region through Wednesday. On Thursday the high pressure is forecast to shift back into the Pacific cooling things back down and bringing breezy conditions to the southland.
Looking now over to the southwest where it will continue to be dry with above normal daytime temperatures through Saturday. Early next week a low is forecast drop down from the north.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the northern end of the Sea will be gusterly today with 20+ knot winds. The central Sea the NW winds will be approaching 20 Knots. The southern Sea just moderate winds. Tomorrow and Friday look to be very pleasant wind-wise. Tomorrow’s forecast for southern winds has been dropped and in the forecast now is for NE or NW winds in the Sea tomorrow. They will be in the very moderate ranges.
Temperatures will continue to be in the low to mid 70s in the central Sea. Mid 70s in the southern Sea. The Riviera finally under some sunshine will be in the mid to low 80s today.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning the water vapor imagery is showing that low off the Northern Baja coast starting to move NE and will be approaching the international border later this morning bringing some clouds across the northern end of the Sea and Arizona border towns but not that much further north. It looks like any cloudiness along the border should be gone by this afternoon.
The rest of the Sea look to be free of any cloudiness. I can see that a narrow moisture plume is headed toward the cape. When it arrives later this morning there will be what look like scattered multi level clouds that will be passing over the cape from La Paz south. moisture.
Looking south to the Riviera where that long moisture plume is still blanketing an area from roughly Puerto Vallarta south to Manzanillo this morning. As it has from the past week now the genius for this moisture plume is a hot spot on the ITCZ/monsoon trough right about 110N. The physical area of this hot spot is not very large but within this small area it is producing very powerful and tall thunderbumpers and it does not look like they will decay within the next 24 hours.
None of the reporting stations reported any rain accumulations over the past 24 hours.
Looking now at the Gulf of Tehuantepec where the Gale advisories were lifted yesterday morning and this morning the winds in the Gulf are all in the moderate ranges. By tomorrow the seas should have calmed down enough to open a crossing window.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific Basin this morning with the exception of a small Storm moving past Hawaii to the east the Pacific is pretty much clear this morning.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where as I mentioned there is a big honk’n low swirling in the Gulf of Alaska and it is the pulses of this system that will keep the Great Northwest’s low lands wet and the Cascades white. Today the Cascades should receive another foot of snow.
Not much of this will reach Northern California as a building high pressure ridge is keeping the Storm track to the north. The forecast for northern California into late in the week is for clear and dry.
Looking south to the other end of the state southern California under building high pressure will be clear and dry into probably Friday.
There is still some uncertainty on the timing of the next system to impact California. It could be as early as next Saturday. The next GFS computer runs will sort all this out.
Looking now over to the southwest where this morning they has some high clouds mostly along the border that are associated with a cold front moving up from Northern Baja. They should be gone by early afternoon. This is a very dry system and no precipitation is forecast for Baja or Arizona. In the wake of this system high pressure will fill in bringing warming temperatures and clear skies into the weekend. Temperatures could reach the mid 80s in the lower deserts by the end of the week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the northern Sea will be seeing brisk to strong winds today and tomorrow but it does not look like they will move up the Sea today. Tomorrow from around Santa Rosalia south to Concepcion Bay will see the strongest winds and they will be ballpark around 20 knots. The rest of the Sea will be in the moderate ranges.
Thursday into the weekend look to be very pleasant wind-wise.
Temperatures today in the northern Sea will be in the mid 60s, the central sea low to mid 70s, the southern Sea mid to high 70s and the Riviera mid 80s today.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see a few whispys passed over the northern Sea during the night and this morning it looks like the entire Sea is cloud free now.
Looking south I can see the same moisture plume that has been there for a week bringing cloudiness to the Mexican Riviera. This morning the plume extends from the southern crossing to Manzanillo.
Again this morning there are a few moisture laden dark bottomed cells that will be passing over during the day so there is a chance of isolated showers.
The genesis of these clouds continue to be an area along the ITCZ/monsoon trough between 110 and 125W and there are no indications that the building convection in this area will end in the near future.
A bit further out I can see a couple of weak lows embedded in the ITCZ/monsoon trough that the only affect they will have is to enhance the trade winds in that area.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific Basin this morning I can see that it has mostly high whispys all the way out to Hawaii this morning.
Looking back at the Tehuantepec where winds reported at the Salena Cruz station, on the northern shore of the Gulf, have been in the 20-25 knot ranges over the past several hours. Winds over the water are still at minimal Gale force and are forecast to persist through the morning hours and then diminish today as high pressure north of the area moderates and shifts east. They could have a crossing window open Wednesday. We’ll see?
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image I can see the Great Northwest will be wet all week. The Cascades will continue to see moderate snow.
The current system moving through the northwest will sag a bit to the south today and bring light showers to the Bay Area, upper Sacramento valley and the northern Sierras today. Snow showers are forecast for the Lake Tahoe region this morning.
Southern California will see some cloudiness from this low as it continues to slide south however no rain is forecast.
The clouds will clear this evening and tomorrow with the arrival of high pressure from the Pacific. The high pressure will bring a warming trend for a couple of days then later in the week it will cool off again when the next cold front is forecast to arrive
Looking now over to the southwest where the system that moved into the southwest from California yesterday will be exiting the region today with high pressure taking its place.
The low that brought cloudiness to southern California continued south along the northern Baja coast. Tomorrow that low will start to move northeast back into Arizona. This low is moisture starved so no rain is forecast, just some cloudiness and cooler temperatures as it passed quickly through the southwest tomorrow.
Wednesday high pressure from west will rebuild over Arizona and continue into the weekend with clear skies and a warming trend.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. It looks like California and the southwest will be seeing pleasant weather until later in the week.
Back on this side of the Fence the Sea will be having a pleasant day wind-wise. Tomorrow all locations will see a just bit more wind and then Wednesday with the arrival of high pressure to our north brisk to strong winds for the entire Sea.
As the gradient equalizes between here and the Great Basin right now it looks like Thursday into the weekend should see moderate winds again. That’s a bit far out for me to forecast but that’s the big picture right now.
Temperatures yesterday afternoon inched up a few degrees and it looks like they could inch up a few more degrees today. So for the central Sea mid 70s, the southern Sea mid to high 70s and the Riviera mid 80s today and overcast.
All in all a very pleasant winter day in Baja.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the cold front moving though SE California into SW Arizona is bringing some cloudiness with it that is extending into the far northern Sea. This system is on the fast track so the clouds will pass to east quickly this morning in the northern Sea.
The rest of the Sea looks clear this morning. I can though see that some whispys have been passing over the cape during the night and this morning.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera I can see the moisture plume is reminiscent of a Pineapple Express but without the jet this morning. The plume is spread out from around Puerto Vallarta to Zihuatanejo this morning. I can see plenty of wet cells in the plume this morning so dark bottomed clouds and the changes of showers are possible for this entire area.
Looking now at the ITCZ/monsoon trough I can see that all these clouds are coming from an area between 110 and 125W. The rest of the zone, as it has been for the past week, is relatively quiet this morning.
Looking back over to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where a fast moving cold front moving through the western Gulf of Mexico is funneling strong winds through the Chivella pass and they are forecast to increase to minimal Gale force by tonight into tomorrow morning. The Gale warning extends into Monday however the winds are forecast to diminish below Gale force by Monday afternoon.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where looking out into the Pacific there are enough storms on the way to keep the Great Northwest wet all next week.
The cold front moving through later today will just brush Northern California tomorrow bringing a chance of rain to the Bay Area and the Sacramento Valley. Snow is forecast for the Lake Tahoe area tomorrow.
Looking now to southern California where a couple of low pressure systems will be moving through southern California today and tomorrow. The southland could see some light rain today; the second system will probably be dry. It will remain cool and gusterly as these fronts pass through.
Then starting Tuesday building high pressure off the west coast will start to migrate toward the coast and expand over California bringing clear skies and warming temperatures into late into the week.
Looking now over to the southwest where a fast moving front is moving out of California into SW Arizona this morning bringing cloudiness and breezy conditions later today. Yuma Radar is not showing any rain and the forecast is for perhaps just a trace as this system passed though.
The second system will move through tomorrow and it is also expected to be dry.
This second system will be an inside slider, meaning it will moving south through Nevada and not down the coast before entering SE California and SW Arizona. The system is forecast to continue moving south and end up parking off the northern Baja coast before dissipating. No rain is forecast for the northern Baja regions from this system just some cloudiness.
In summary, the Storm track is well to the north of California and high pressure will build over California and Arizona starting Tuesday bringing mostly clear skies and warmer temperatures well into next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence we can expect to see moderate winds for the entire Sea today and picking up just a bit tomorrow but not much.
I noted that most of the sunrise temperatures were up a degree or two this morning however it does not look like today’s highs will be much higher than yesterday. So temperatures today for the northern and central Sea mid to high 60s. The southern Sea low 70s and the Riviera low to mid 80s today.
Of note the Gonzaga bay Weather Underground stations had a notice posted this morning that the web cam and the station were shutting down as of yesterday. I hope this is not permanent as it filled the gap between the real-time stations in San Filepe and La Bay.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see where that cold front passed over the Northern peninsula yesterday and last night. This morning it is just north of Hermosillo. The outer fringes of the counterclockwise swirl are bringing a few clouds back over the northern and north central Sea this morning. Most of the moisture laden clouds are now moving up into SE Arizona and SW New Mexico. The front will continue to move east into Chihuahua later in the day.
As the system moves further to the northeast the cloudiness will move with the system.
Preceding that front that moved though the northern Sea yesterday it was gusterly with gusts to 35 knots being recorded.
Other than that the Sea looks to be pretty much free of any cloudiness this morning.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera and looking at the 300mb Jet Stream Analysis it is showing a southern jet driving right through the center of that moisture plume that has been off the Riviera coast for about a week.
For the first time this year we actually have a Pineapple Express. The clouds riding on the express move up from the ITCZ/monsoon trough, pass over pretty much the whole of the Riviera, cross the mainland and enter the Gulf of Mexico, then travel along the Gulf states and along the eastern seaboard as far as Virginia before moving out into the Atlantic.
Looking back at the Riviera it looks like that plume will continue to bring cloudiness from a bit to the south of Mazatlan to Acapulco again today.
Looking further south it looks like the 5-day honeymoon will be over on Sunday for the winds in the Gulf of Tehuantepec. A cold front moving across the Gulf of Mexico will bring strong winds back to the Gulf on Sunday in the 30K ranges. Today and Saturday the winds will remain in the very moderate ranges though.
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 yet another honker approaching the Great Northwest. Tomorrow when it arrives it will bring more Rain and snow down to 1000 feet. They can expect rain and snow well into next week. This Storm will also bring heavy surf to the northwest coast. Sea will be around 25 feet or so.
This system will just brush Northern California and the very upper Sacramento Valley. Other than that northern California will have building high pressure, warmer days and clear skies into the weekend.
Southern California has a rather weak low moving down the coast. Bypassing the LA basin it will make landfall around San Diego tomorrow. Light rain or drizzle is possible early Sunday morning followed by mild and dry weather well into next week under high pressure.
Looking now over to the southwest where the low system moving across Sonora today will bring valley rain and mountain snow showers this morning ending as the day progresses. Dry and warmer to start the weekend then another system will bring gusterly winds and a few mainly mountain showers Sunday into early next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Today the winds in the Sea will be brisk to strong in the 20+ knot ranges from the NW.
Tomorrow the winds will back off a bit and be in the moderate ranges and then Sunday will be pretty much like today. Gusterly!
As that cold front moved through the northern Sea yesterday and last nigh it brought cooler sunrise temperatures. Several locations reported a drop of 10 degrees from the previous morning.
Today’s highs for the central Sea will be in the mid to high 60s with a few in the southland reaching the low 70s today. The wind chill will make the day seem uncomfortably cold.
The Riviera’s temperatures will continue to be in the low 80s today along with overcast skies and the threat of showers.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see a band of what look like mostly cirrus passing over the northern Sea early this morning. Radar is showing a band of showers from Palm Springs south to Mexicali and the lower Colorado River Valley moving southeast this morning. Puerto Penasco is in the forward path so they could see some showers later this morning.
The rest of the Sea south to cape looks pretty much clear this morning.
Off the west coast of the peninsula what look like a mix of multilevel clouds hug the coast. Today much like yesterday some of these will pass over the peninsula into the Sea.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera I can see that the wide, wet plume of moisture moving off the ITCZ/monsoon trough continues to blanket most of the Riviera this morning. Within this plume there are numerous scattered very wet cells that produce showers.
None of the reporting stations along the Riviera reported any rain accumulations within the past 24 hours though.
The Tehuantepec continues to have very moderate winds so this is day 4 that the crossing window has been open and it looks like the next 3 days the window will continue to be open.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image the Great Northwest has a weak system moving though this morning bringing light rain. Several more vigorous systems will arrive starting tomorrow and keep the streets wet and the mountains white for the next 5 days.
Northern California today and tomorrow should see clear skies. Saturday the tail end of a weak system to the north could bring some light rain. Another system is forecast to move through Northern California of Sunday. Neither look very impressive.
Starting early next week high pressure should build over the entire state bringing dry weather once again.
Southern California will have scattered showers into the afternoon as a low digs south into Baja. Another weak system is forecast to arrive on Sunday bringing the possibility of more light rain to the southland. It will warm up next week with the return of high pressure over the region.
Looking now over to the southwest where a low system is moving out of California and into southwest Arizona this morning then exiting starting from the west during the day tomorrow. Valley rain and mountain snow are likely today. As I mentioned radar was showing rain at Mexicali and Yuma this morning.
Sunday another system is forecast to arrive and bring mostly gusterly conditions and some high elevation snow into early next week.
The tailing end of this cold front over Yuma this morning is swinging through northern Baja this morning. It should be over the north-central Sea during the day and central Sonora by tomorrow morning with the far southern tailing end passing the cape tomorrow morning.
Certainly northern Baja and the far northern Sea will get some rain as this front passes through. The big question is: Will Baja Sur get any rain? I have all these wonderful graphs and charts to try to come up with an answer and the best I can give is, “I doubt it”. We’ll see?
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back here in Baja today wind-wise it looks like we will have a bit more wind in the afternoon than yesterday. Still in the moderate ranges though. Tomorrow most of the Sea will be seeing ballpark 20 knot winds in the afternoon and a bit less on Saturday for most of the Sea.
Temperatures will continue to be in the low to mid 70s today.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that that front moved out of California yesterday just brushed northern Baja with just traces of rain as it passed to the east. This morning the Sea looks to be free of any cloudiness.
All along the outside of the peninsula mixed layers of clouds are being pushed down the coast by a low sliding down the California coast this morning. Much like yesterday I’d expect to see some of these pass over the peninsula into the Sea. Most likely a mix of fluffys and whispys.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where that plume of moisture laden clouds continue to move up from the ITCZ/monsoon trough and make landfall along the entire Riviera from Mazatlan to Acapulco again this morning. Within this plume are numerous wet cells that have the potential of producing showers.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific Basin this morning I can mostly high whispys between Baja and Hawaii this morning.
The Tehuantepec continues to have very moderate winds for the 3-day forecast period so the crossing window is still open.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where the Great Northwest will see some sun today before the next series of storms arrives tomorrow into the weekend.
Northern California will see some lingering showers today and snow is forecast for the Sierras until this evening. The next chance of any rain will be on Sunday when another system could move through.
High pressure is forecast to rebuild into northern California late this weekend well into next week.
Southern California has a strong and cold low working down the California coast this morning that will bring widespread rain and mountain snow until this evening. Snow levels will begin around 5000 feet this morning and quickly drop to around 3000 feet by this afternoon impacting the traffic over the grapevine.
Showers may linger over the mountains and deserts through late tomorrow night.
This system will bring strong winds along the coast this afternoon to 35 mph. The mountains and deserts could see gusts 45-55 all day today.
As this system slides south into northern Baja tomorrow morning the strong winds will continue in southern California into Friday.
Looking over to the southwest where this image is showing the heavy clouds moving east out of Arizona. Over southwest Arizona it is overcast this morning but should clear later this morning and the forecast is for dry and cool today for southwest Arizona. Snow is still forecast for Flagstaff this morning though.
Another system will impact the southwest later tomorrow. It looks like this one will track along the international border bringing another chance of rain showers tomorrow morning into Friday morning along with breezy conditions.
The forecast is for dry and warm to start the weekend but Sunday could see a few mainly mountain showers and end up being quite windy.
Most of models are in agreement that high pressure will rebuild from the west into the western conus next week.
That’s what is gong on to the north of us. Yesterday just about every single location in the Sea of Cortez exceeded the wind forecast by an average of 10 knots. The bay of La had 40 knot winds when all the models were showing around 10 knot for that area. Sort of a watchman’s nightmare.
This morning the forecast is much the same as yesterday. None of the models are showing these strong winds today. A pilot instructor once told me always trust your instruments. So with a bit of apprehension I’m saying the winds should be in the moderate ranges today.
About the same for tomorrow for the central Sea. A bit gusterly in the southern Sea tomorrow. Friday the entire see should see brisk to strong winds in the afternoon.
Temperatures today will be in the mid 60s for the northern Sea and the rest in the low 70s today.
And finally that front that is moving into southern California today will slide south into northern Baja tomorrow. Northern Baja will see some rain as this system passes quickly to the east. There is chance that the central Sea could see some light showers early tomorrow morning. We’ll see?

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see a few high whispys passing over the northern Sea during the night as a cold front moves out of California into Arizona.
Off the west coast of Baja there is a lot of cloudiness out there and it looks like the mountains are keeping them from passing into the Sea. There are several storms along California coast that are pushing clouds in front of them and along the Baja west coast and this image is showing the clouds getting thicker. So far none have passed over the peninsula but it looks likely that will happen and we will have some high overcast later today. We’ll see?
Right now both the water vapor imagery and the IR are showing the Sea to be pretty much free of any cloudiness.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera. Well, two days ago and again yesterday the forecast was for that area of disturbed weather off the mainland west coast to dissipate. That has actually happened but you would not know it by the clouds over the Riviera from around Cabo Corrienties south to Acapulco this morning. They are coming from convection building along the ITCZ/monsoon trough and drifting toward the mainland. Within this plume there are scattered cells that will have dark bottoms and so the possibility of sprinkles continue to be in their forecast for today. This plume is reminiscent of the Pineapple Express however so far this year the southern jet has yet to make an appearance.
The Tehuantepec is relatively calm this morning and the forecast is for that to continue into Thursday at least, so a crossing window is now open.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where the Storm door is open for the west coast. I can see a cold front moving down the Washington/Oregon coast last night. It will be bringing valley rain and mountain snow to the Cascades today.
Tomorrow the Storm will slide south into Northern California bringing moderate amounts of valley rain and snow to the Sierras tomorrow and Thursday. Snow should start around Lake Tahoe late this evening.
Southern California will have a cold upper level low move through the region today and tonight with rain showers along with possible thunderbumpers and mountain snow. Windy conditions exist along the coast with large swells and small craft advisories posted from LA to San Diego.
Another potentially stronger system will move through the southland on Wednesday bringing more wet and windy weather.
Thursday and Friday will dry out a bit then next weekend another trough will arrive bringing another chance of rain.
Looking now over to the southwest and along the international border where the skies are clear but heavy clouds are moving in from the west and north and I’d expect to see the entire state blanketed with clouds later this morning.
A cold front is moving out of California into Arizona this morning and it will bring strong gusterly winds, some rain and cooler temperatures before it passes to the east tonight.
Wednesday it will dry out a bit before the next Storm arrives on Thursday and Thursday night. This Storm will also bring a chance of showers. Friday into the weekend it should warm up a bit.
By the end of next week we should see high pressure building over the Great Basin.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. That system that is moving down the coast of California today appears to be loosing most of its moisture along the way. The cold front should slide south into northern Baja this morning bringing only a chance of any showers to the northern state. It should pass to the east by tomorrow morning leaving cooler temperatures in its wake.
As this front passed today the northern Sea and perhaps the central Sea could see some high cloudiness and then clearing by this evening.
Wind-wise with not much of a gradient in the Sea. Our winds will continue to be on the light to very moderate side for the next 3 days. Thursday Point Concepcion could see afternoon winds up to 20 but the rest of the Sea low to mid teens.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning first with the 24 hour loop I can see that the skies have been pretty much clear over Baja for the past 24 hours.
Looking south to that area of disturbed weather about 800 miles west of Zihuatanejo where it is continuing to send bands of moisture laden clouds toward the mainland. These bands are now not quite as heavy with moisture and are scattered this morning. The forecast is again for this area to break up within the next 24 hours.
That being said looking further south to the ITCZ/monsoon trough: It is quite active this morning with numerous areas of heavy convection that is starting to spill into the Eastern Pacific Basin.
Going with the forecast though it looks like the likelihood of any more rain along the Riviera today is rather slim.
Checking out the Gulf of Tehuantepec this morning I can see that the Gales in the Gulf of Tehuantepec appear to have ended. By this afternoon the winds are forecast to diminish to less than 20 knots.
Looking now out into the Eastern Pacific Basin, it is mostly overcast with high cirrus all the way out to Hawaii this morning.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image I can see the first of several storms to impact the west coast is arriving in Oregon and Northern California this morning bringing rain to northern California and snow to the Sierras.
This system will sag south during the day and bring another round of wintery weather to southern California starting later this evening into tomorrow. Rain and a chance of thunderbumpers are in the forecast. A second system will bring a chance of more showers Wednesday and Wednesday night.
Thursday and Friday are will be dry awaiting the next system that is forecast to arrive next Sunday.
Snow levels are forecast to drop to 4000-4500 feet by this evening in southern California.
Looking now over to the southwest where southwest Arizona has partial overcast this morning and it looks like 100% overcast by later today as clouds are moving quickly into the state from the north.
There will be a train of weather systems passing though Arizona this week. The first one continues to move east this morning into New Mexico. It will be followed by one on Tuesday and yet another on Thursday and possibly another on Sunday or Monday of next week.
These subsequent systems will bring a chance of valley rain and mountain snow to parts of southwest Arizona. Gusterly winds and cooler temperatures will accompany each passing system.
Well, that’s what is going on to the north of us. On this side of the fence it looks like the next three days the northern and central Sea will be have very moderate winds. The southern Sea light winds are in the forecast.
All day today a front will be moving south along the California coast. It is forecast to arrive in southern California tonight and then tomorrow morning sag south into Northern Baja. It should bring some rain to northern Baja and perhaps the northern Sea as it passes to the east during the day tomorrow.
The central see will most likely see some cloudiness as this system moves through but not much chance of any rain. You are probably thinking, he said that a week ago and we had that downpour. Well I have two models in agreement and that’s enough for me to stick my neck out this morning.
As far as the winds: These storms moving through the southwest to the north of us will keep the gradient weak and not support much in the way of winds this week. The next three days it looks like good sailing weather for anyplace in the Sea. Both crossings look inviting.
The Riviera will continue to see some patches of cloudiness south of Manzanillo to around Acapulco today.
Sunrise temperatures were in general down from 5-10 degrees from yesterday morning. This afternoon the temperatures will be in the mid 70s while in the southern end of the state they could break 80 today.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the cape area was the only location on the peninsula to see any clouds in the past 24 hours. This morning the entire Sea looks to be clear of any clouds.
Looking over at the Mexican Riviera I can see that low trough off west of Manzanillo is still producing a lot of moisture laden clouds that are drifting toward the mainland. It has moved a bit south of the past 24 hours and is forecast to dissipate within the next 24 hours.
Reporting stations only reported traces of rain along the Riviera yesterday and last night.
Right now there are bands of these moisture laden clouds from just south of Manzanillo to the Tehuantepec.
The Tehuantepecker continues today in the Gulf and an ASCAT pass showed Gale force winds exiting the Gulf into the Eastern Pacific Basin this morning. They are forecast to fall below advisory levels this evening and tomorrow but remain in the 25-30K ranges.
That’s what is going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where the Great Northwest will continue to have off and on weather for the next week.
Northern California will be brushed by one these systems today and see mostly light rain and a dusting of snow in the higher elevations.
Southern California will have another series of cold fronts move through the region today through Wednesday. Tomorrow will be the best chance that the southland will see any rain and mountain snow.
High pressure should then start to build over the state on Wednesday.
Looking now over to the southwest where a series of weather systems will impact the region over the next 5 days. The first is moving though Arizona today followed by one on Tuesday and another on Thursday. Each system will bring a chance of valley rain and mountain snow to southwest Arizona. Cooler weather and gusterly conditions will accompany each passing system.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like today and the next two will be very pleasant wind-wise. Light to moderate winds are forecast for the entire Sea.
With the lower pressure in the northern Sea, even though my forecast is for northern winds this morning, I’d be surprised if we did not have southerlies until this afternoon in the central Sea.
Along the Riviera, south of Manzanillo, it looks like they will continue to see some rain producing clouds today and most likely by tomorrow morning that area of disturbed weather will be history and clear skies will prevail over the region.
Temperatures today will again be in the mid to high 70s and low 80s around the cape.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see we have had another day in the Sea of Cortez without any cloudiness.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera a different picture. I can see an area south of the cape and west of Zihuatanejo that is producing a lot of convection. These moisture laden clouds are moving toward the Riviera from about Mazatlan to Acapulco this morning picking up moisture as the move toward shore.
Several of the reporting stations along the Riviera reported showers yesterday. The heaviest however was at Manzanillo where they showed 1.42 inches of rain since midnight this morning.
Looking south to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where the winds this morning are just below advisory levels however will increase to Gale force by this afternoon as a cold front currently moving through the western Gulf of Mexico pushes into the Gulf of Campeche. Gale force winds will then continue through Sunday afternoon peaking around 40 knots.
Not a lot going on out in the Pacific, so that’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where starting at the top of this image I can see where a low system is pushing a cold front over the Pacific Northwest this morning bringing wet to the low lands and snow to the Cascades. The storms are stacked up out in the Pacific and will arrive one after another for the next week with about the same pattern as today.
Northern California will see the tail end of this frontal boundary and it is bringing light rain to as far south as San Francisco and the upper Sacramento Valley this morning. The Sierras will also get a light dusting of snow by this evening.
Looking now at southern California where a series of weak weather systems will move through southern California this weekend and early next week bringing cool and unsettled weather as well as some strong westerly winds to the mountains and deserts. Some light rain and mountain snow are possible. Dry and warmer conditions will return by late next week.
Looking now over to the southwest where it will be warm and dry today. A series of relatively modest low systems will bring a few valley rain and mountain snow showers starting tomorrow morning and again Tuesday into Wednesday along with gusterly winds at times and much cooler temperatures.
Tuesday’s system will bring the best chance of showers to the southwest.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the central Sea will see the strongest southerlies today. Both the northern and southern Seas will be in the moderate ranges.
Abundant sunshine is on tap for the entire Sea. The Riviera will continue to see bands of what look like dark bottomed clouds pass over. Showers along the Riviera are probable this morning. The plume appears to be weakening so most likely just overcast this afternoon. There is currently a heavy squall directly over Acapulco this morning.
Temperatures will climb a bit today and the Sea should see afternoon temperatures in the high 70s to the mid 80s. The Riviera should see temperatures in the mid 80s as well today.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can’t see any clouds in the Sea this morning. No clouds on the outside of the Baja peninsula eeither. It looks like the high pressure out there will be keeping the region clear of any cloudiness at least for the next 24 hours.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera I can see that a pretty solid plume of clouds is blanketing the area from just south of Mazatlan to the Gulf of Tehuantepec.
Interesting where these clouds originate. Normally we see convections building along the ITCZ/monsoon trough or even in the western subtropics and then drift with the west/east flow in the basin toward Mexico. These clouds actually originate over the Amazon. There is a long plume of clouds that traverse South America and enter the Eastern Pacific Basin around Columbia and Ecuador and move north past Central America and make landfall along the Riviera. I have never seen a pattern like this before. I don’t think this is significant, just interesting and it’s a pretty slow morning weather wise and I though I’d share it with you.
I digress. Looking now at the Gulf of Tehuantepec the support for the strong winds in the Gulf has weakened and today the winds should be less than 20. This weekend the pressure gradient will build and bring winds to almost Gale force whistling through the Chivela pass into the Gulf.
I have archive records that go back almost 16 years and that Storm that came down the Baja coast was the strongest winter Pacific Storm in my records. Rain totals were as high as 2 inches in 6 hours.
OK, that’s it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where looking out into the Pacific I can see the storms lined up that will keep the Great Northwest wet all week.
For Northern California rain chances will continue into Saturday as a low slides south over the state. Another low is anticipated to move into northern California on Sunday. With mostly light showers to the valleys and light snow showers to the Sierras
Looking now at southern California where it will be a bit cooler today. A rather weak low and associated cold front will be moving down the coast today and will be moving inland tomorrow with the possibility of some light rain and mountain snow to the southland. A better chance of rain will come Sunday night into Monday when a stronger front moves through.
Looking now over to the southwest where it should be warm and dry into the weekend. A series of modest low systems will bring a few valley rain and mountain snow showers the first half of next week. It will also be breezy in the southwest next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence all of Baja can expect to see abundant sunshine today.
Wind-wise the northern Sea should see moderate northerlies today. The central Sea a bit more in the 18-22 knot ranges. The southern Sea moderate northerlies today.
Tomorrow the entire Sea will see southern winds strongest in the central Sea and moderate in the north and south. Sunday looks very pleasant with very moderate winds for the entire Sea.
The Riviera today will be overcast with a bit cooler temperatures.
The temperatures in Baja will be in the mid to low 70s today.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that as that Storm slid down the coast yesterday the entire peninsula and Sea have been blanketed with clouds.
Yesterday morning the low was about 200 miles SW of San Diego and during the day it moved south paralleling the peninsula.
As the front slid south numerous wet cells passed over the peninsula and brought rain sometime heavy at times from Santa Rosalia south to the cape.
As it arrived around the cape in the early afternoon the counterclockwise swirl of the low picked up abundant tropical moisture from south of the cape and the swirl sent these moisture laden clouds back up the Sea bringing rain all along the peninsula, the Sonoran coast, the central and southern Sea until late in the evening.
This image is showing that the northern Mexican Riviera also received showers yesterday afternoon and evening.
This morning the weakened low is still spiraling over the cape. The bar at the cape at 5am was 1014. This image is showing the associated cold front has moved east and is now stretched out from around Cabo Corrienties to Tucson and moving NE across Sonora.
This image is showing a lot of lingering fluffys, some with dark bottoms lingering along the Baja peninsula and around the Sea this morning. Most are moving off to the west this morning. If this continues I’d image that we could be seeing mostly sunshine by this afternoon. We’ll see?
Looking south along the Mexican Riviera it looks like from around Manzanillo south to Zihuatanejo did not get any rain. However the area did see some cloudiness move in from the Pacific during the day and early morning hours.
Looking now at the Tehuantepec where it looks like support for the high winds in the Gulf have largely faded away except one final surge of 25-30 knot winds this morning. It looks like the winds will be hovering around 20 knots for the 3-day forecast period.
That about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where California is partly cloudy this morning. Oregon and Washington have storms arriving from the west that will keep the Great Northwest wet well into next week.
Northern California will see some of this weather south to about Eureka. The rest of the north state will remain dry under building high pressure into the weekend.
Southern California will have a couple of weak troughs move through the region during the weekend and another stronger front could bring more rain to southern California early next week.
Looking now over to the southwest where some of this moisture from our hood will work its way back into eastern Arizona but most will brush New Mexico and move into Texas.
This image is showing weather in the Great Basin that has moved down from the north will bring only a slight chance of mountain showers over the White Mountains. The regions should remain dry through the weekend then early next week will be the best opportunity for the southwest to see and rain.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. On this side of the Fence there may be some lingering clouds around the cape. It looks like the last of the heavy cells are moving through the northern Mexican Riviera early this morning and there may still be some residual cloudiness in the area until later this morning. Then the cold front will move off to the NE during the day bringing rain to Sonora and central Mexico.
As far as the winds in the Sea: today and tomorrow will see brisk NW winds. On Friday the moderate winds in the Sea will have a southern flavor.
As far as rain totals. Weather Undergournd has not updated their historical data for the past two days and I inadvertently turned off the data logger on my weather station last night but before I turned it off it was showing about a half inch of rain.
As far as sunshine…Well, just maybe, perhaps, probably later this morning and afternoon. This image is showing most of the clouds and all of the rain have moved into southern and central Sonora this morning. It looks like the skies over Guaymas and the northern coast of Sonora are clearing this morning.
As far at the temperatures they should be in the low 70s today.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see where starting yesterday morning clouds from that Pacific storm starting passing over northern Baja and during the day as the front sagged south the clouds kept edging south until by early this morning they had blanketed the entire peninsula.
This image is showing the light bands of showers started passing over the peninsula around midnight and continued for several hours. Here at my palapa at el Burro we had a few sprinkles at 3am this morning. At around 5:30 and around 7am another band passed over Concepcion Bay again bringing light sprinkles. I’d doubt it if there was any measurable rain during the night any place as most of the rain bands were very narrow and moving quickly east.
This morning it looks like the west coast of the peninsula is now clear and just remnant clouds will be passing over this morning. It looks like it should clear over southern Baja by late this morning.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera this image is showing the southern crossing and Mazatlan have some remnant clouds from this system and it looks like they will be clearing by early afternoon.
Looking further south it looks like the coast will be pretty much clear all day south to the Tehuantepec.
The bay of Tehuantepec has solid cloud cover this morning from clouds moving up from the monsoon tough. The ITCZ/monsoon trough is fairly activity this morning from about 110 to 115N.
Due to the strong gradient between the Gulf of Mexico and the Eastern Pacific Basin fresh to strong winds will persist in the Gulf over the 3-day forecast period. They will be just below advisory levels.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top to this image I can see that the Storm door is open for the Great Northwest. A series of systems are lined up out in the Pacific that will bring rain and mountain snow all week to northern Oregon and all of Washington.
High pressure is starting to build over Northern California and I can see some cloudiness north of the Golden Gate but the forecast is for clear skies and dry weather for the rest of the week into the weekend.
For southern California skies started to clear early this morning and now most of southern California is clear. San Diego will have some lingering cloudiness until later in the morning.
Looking now over to the southwest where they have had some light bands of showers pass over overnight. Today it looks like it will be cloudy most of the day as the clouds surrounding the low that is still off the Baja coast to swing north.
There will be another system drop into Arizona from the Great Basin tonight keeping the cloudiness in the region until this weekend. Not much chance of any rain except in the higher elevations.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence. One of the California forecasters said the low would be centered over the Baja Spur by later today. I have never heard that location before and was unable to Google it. Anyone that knows where this is, let me know after this summary.
It looks to me that the low will continue south a bit before moving over the Baja peninsula later today and this evening. It looks like most of moisture will be spent and it will slowly dissipate by late tomorrow. We’ll see?
Wind-wise the Sea will be very pleasant today will mostly light winds. The Sonoran coast should have light winds with a southern flavor. The central Sea mostly easterly and light NW for the southern Sea.
It looks to me that the northern Sea will clear first this morning, then the central Sea later this morning and the southern Sea early this afternoon.
Sunrise temperatures in most locations for the Sea were up a few degrees today. Today’s highs should also be up a few degrees into the high 70s today for the Sea. The Riviera ballpark mid 80s.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see the first clouds from that Pacific Storm starting to move across northern Baja and into the northern Sea this morning.
As of 5am the rest of the Sea was pretty much free of any cloudiness.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera I can see there is an area of heavy thunderbumper activity about 800 miles west of the Gulf of Tehuantepec. Large cells that look like they are very wet are moving with the west/east flow in the basin and pretty much blanket the area from around Puerto Vallarta to south to the Gulf of Tehuantepec this morning.
I was a bit surprised to see that none of the reporting stations did not show any rain accumulations.
It does not look like these conditions will change much over the next 24 hours.
Looking over at the Gulf of Tehuantepec where the Tehuantepecker continues with Gale force winds funneling thought the Chivela pass into the Gulf. The strong winds are forecast to diminish below Gale force by tonight but remain very strong at 25-30 knots through Wednesday evening.
Taking a look at the monsoon trough running pretty much along the 8 north parallel. Not much going on there. All of the Storm activity is up around 16N off the Gulf of Tehuantepec.
That’s what’s going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where a Pacific Storm is just arriving along the northern California coast.
It will bring rain to the valleys and snow to the sierras today and into tomorrow.
The Storm will slide south down the coast today. It is currently centered about 400 miles west of Point Concepcion along the central California coast.
Cloudiness has already proceeded the front in southern California and the southland should start to see valley rain and mountain snow later today into tomorrow. It is not a particularly wet system and only moderate amounts of rain are forecast for southern California.
The models are not much help here however here is what it looks like to me. The system will continue to slide south and by this afternoon rain will be falling in northern Baja and along the peninsula to about Point San Quinten. Tomorrow the front will start to pass over the peninsula to as far south as Abreojos. The peninsula and both the northern and central Sea will see some most likely light showers through Thursday morning. And for goodness sake don’t chisel this in stone. Mexican TV weather probably has the right solution but I don’t have that option. If I had time I’d sneak over ask my friend Bertha. She watches TV all day at her tienda.
As far as the southwest it will remain dry today with temperatures a few degrees above normal. A few showers may occur Wednesday through late Thursday as the Storm passes mostly to the south. Friday into the weekend should see warmer temperatures as high pressure rebuilds over the region.
Well that’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the fence, today’s winds will be on the light side. Tomorrow will pick up a bit and then a bit more on Thursday.
Temperatures will continue to be in the low to mid 70s today for the central Sea.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that most of the Sea has been pretty much free of any cloudiness for the past 24 hours.
The cape area has had some mostly passing whispys during the night but it looks clear this morning.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera it looks like from time to time they have had a mix of fluffys and whispys passing over since yesterday afternoon. This morning there is a wide wet band of clouds moving toward the area, spread out, off shore, from around Puerto Vallarta south to Manzanillo. There is a lot of convection out there and the plume is around 7-800 miles long so it look like that area of the Riviera will see some cloudiness well into the afternoon today starting a bit later this morning.
Looking further south to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where Gale force winds have increased overnight with winds around 40 knots expected today. The Tehuantepecker will continue through tomorrow and by tomorrow night the winds should dip below the advisory levels but still be in the 25-30 Knot ranges.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific Basin where I can see mostly thin whispys between Baja and Hawaii this morning.
That’s what is going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where off the California/Oregon and Washington coast a giant low is swirling out there. Most of the coast has some cloudiness in advance of this Storm.
It is forecast to arrive tomorrow all along the west coast with the heaviest concentration of rain in northern California and mostly light showers in southern California. Snow levels in the southland will be around 6000 feet with the Grape Vine most likely getting a dusting of snow.
Tomorrow most of California will see some rain and by Wednesday it should exit California to the east with most of the moisture now expended.
The system will be moving south along the west coast all day tomorrow and by late Wednesday the low should be over northern Baja. By Thursday the low is forecast to move a bit further south perhaps into central Baja. Rain is most likely to begin in northern Baja late tomorrow into Wednesday with showers continuing into Thursday in the northern sea perhaps as far south as the central Sea. We’ll see?
Looking now over to the southwest where this system is forecast to be mostly to the south as it moves east. Arizona is not expected to see much rain from this system, perhaps some isolated showers Wednesday through Thursday with the best chance over the far western deserts on Wednesday and along the international border Wednesday night and Thursday.
By late tomorrow night the system should exit northern California, exiting southern California on Wednesday and southeast Arizona and Baja on Thursday.
High pressure building first along the west coast will follow the system into the weekend.
So it looks like some weather to the north of us this week and it looks like we will see some of that on this side of the Fence as well. Just how far south a good guess would be perhaps Santa Rosalia. We’ll see?
As far as the winds in the Sea today and tomorrow they will be moderate. Wednesday it looks like light winds.
As far as temperatures today they should be in the mid 70s. One forecaster in La Paz was reporting a drop of 10 degrees in our daytime highs later in the week. It would certainly not be unusual to see daytime highs in Central Sea the mid 60s and the overnight lows in the high 40s in February. You may think about putting a liner in your SpeedO.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez has been pretty much free of any cloudiness for the past 24 hours. There has been a few high whispys pass over but that has been it.
Looking south to the cape it looks like yesterday morning they had some passing clouds in that area and the southern crossing that cleared to the south by around noon.
This band of clouds continued to move south and soon blanketed the northern end of the Riviera. Early this morning several very wet cells passed over from just south of Mazatlan to around Manzanillo. I was surprised to see that none of the reporting stations reported any rain accumulations.
This band of clouds is now dissipating and I’d think that by early this morning most will have passed to the east with perhaps some lingering from Manzanillo to Zihuatanejo into later in the day.
Then sunshine looks like the order of the day into tomorrow with only some whispys out in the Pacific.
Looking south now to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where north winds funneling through the Chivela pass into the Gulf will increase to Gale force by tonight as strong high pressure behind a cold front in the SW Gulf of Mexico builds southward along the east coast of Mexico. Peak winds to 40 knots are expected early tomorrow with seas building to 13-14 feet. These conditions will persist through early Tuesday.
That about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where high pressure over the west coast is producing mostly clear skies and slightly warming temperatures.
Looking out into the Pacific I can see a Gale brewing out there that will weaken as approaches the west coast and breaks through the high pressure. It’s forecast to arrive late tomorrow into Tuesday bringing rain to northern California and very possibly northern Baja as the cold front sags south on Tuesday.
There appears to be some lingering model uncertainty as to the track of the Storm but most models are showing just light to moderate rain on Tuesday clearing the west coast of California on Wednesday. That being said, one of the models is showing the Storm lingering over northern Baja until Thursday. Tomorrow’s forecast should paint a clearer picture.
Looking now over to the southwest where it should be dry through Tuesday. It looks like light rain will begin on Tuesday evening into Wednesday. Dry and much warmer temperatures will return to the region the remainder of the week.
If this system does linger off the Baja coast it will pick up additional tropical moisture and when it comes ashore they could bring significant amounts of rain to the north state. All this is sort of iffy right now as none of the models have a clear solution.
Well that is what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence. It looks like mostly clear skies for the Sea of Cortez and later this morning it looks like the Riviera will be clearing.
As far as winds in the Sea today it will be pretty much like yesterday, perhaps a big stronger in some locations. Just about the same tomorrow as there will not be much change in the pressure gradient until Tuesday when that low moves through to the north. Then we will see a couple of days of light winds until high pressure returns to the Great Basin later in the week.
Today is SuperBowl Sunday in the US and Constitution day in Mexico. Banks and government offices will be closed tomorrow in observation of the holiday.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that yesterday from time to time we had some high whispys pass over the Sea. Starting early last night that area of disturbed weather WSW of the cape that was producing mostly whispys begin to develop a lot of thunderbumper activity and with the west/east flow in the basin started moving these clouds toward Baja. First over the cape and the southern crossing then gradually moving north up the Baja peninsula and now this morning heavy clouds are beginning to move into the central Sea and later this morning into the northern Sea.
There was a band of very wet cells that moved across the southern crossing last night that brought rain to the crossing and Mazatlan.
This image is showing a lot of high topped (wet) cells approaching the west coast of the Baja peninsula and I’d expect at least some of these to be rain producers.
Zooming out I can see that this area is quite large and spread out the length of the Mexican Riviera to the northern end of the Sea. It is being fed with subtropical moisture moving up from the ITCZ/monsoon trough which is also quite active this morning. The heaviest concentration is over the southern Sea this morning.
Looking south I’d expect to see some of these cells make landfall as far south as Manzanillo today.
Taking a look now at the Gulf of Tehuantepec where the 30 knot winds are forecast to diminish below 20 knot this afternoon. Another round of strong north winds, possibly to Gale force, will occur Sunday and Monday.
What a difference a day makes. Yesterday bright sunshine and today dreary dark bottomed clouds passing over. The good side is the Baja peninsula needs the rain.
That’s about it for our hood so looking north now to the west coast of America where some cloudiness will be seen along the coast but inland mostly sunshine through the weekend and into Monday.
That Gale I mentioned earlier in the Pacific that is heading toward California is forecast to arrive next Tuesday along the west coast. This low is forecast to break through the high pressure and bring rain to the entire state.
In the meantime high pressure will pretty much blanket the west.
As a sidebar: That low that brought snow to Salt lake city yesterday has moved up into Colorado this morning bringing blizzard conditions to the state. Temperatures in Denver will be in the 20s with a foot of snow forecast for today.
Looking now at the southwest daily temperatures will increase a few degrees each day through Monday. That Pacific Storm will move through the region Tuesday and Wednesday bringing cooler temperatures and a slight chance of rain. As this system passes to the east high pressure will rebuild and dry and warmer weather will return to the end of next week.
Well that is what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the winds in the northern and central Sea will be brisk to strong for the next three days. The southern Sea will see much lighter winds. I noted that all locations in the Sea were a tad under the forecast values yesterday. I think that will happen again today.
I don’t have to tell you it will be cloudy today, just look up. You just might need an umbrella.
Temperatures will be in the low to mid 70s today in the central Sea and in the mid to high 70s in the southern Sea.
Also according the forecasting groundhog at Punxsutawney Penn. Yesterday, the winter will have an extended stay this year.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that scattered high bands of whispys have been passing over the central Sea for the past 24 hours.
They are very thin and are coming from that area of disturbed air WSW of the cape that has been there for several days and within the past 24 hours has moved a bit further off shore.
The cape area that has see a lot of these high clouds pass over the past few day has been pretty much cloud free since yesterday morning.
The Riviera as well has been pretty much free of any cloudiness since yesterday morning.
Looking further south I can see that the ITCZ/monsoon trough just west of Panama is pretty active this morning and sending a low of wet clouds along the coast and finally making landfall directly into the Gulf of Tehuantepec this morning. Salina Cruz on the northern shore of the Gulf was reporting 32K winds and 100% overcast at 5am this morning. These clouds are then moving east across the isthmus and entering the western Gulf of Mexico.
The forecast for the Gulf of Tehuantepec is for these 30 knot winds to diminish to below 20 knots by tomorrow morning. The next round of strong gap winds, possibly to Gale force, will be Sunday into Monday as a cold front pushes through the Gulf followed by strong high pressure.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific Basin there are still mostly high whispys between Baja and Hawaii this morning.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where the entire west coast has sunshine in their forecast. The Storm track is well to the north of the Canadian border and I can see a big honker move out of the Gulf of Alaska and is moving across northern British Columbia this morning. Too far north to have any affect on the western conus.
I said that the entire west coast would see sunshine today. Well only partial sunshine from about Eureka to the Canadian border this morning as a band of mostly dry clouds move in from the Pacific.
The rest of California will remain dry and a bit warmer under building high pressure. Early next week a low is forecast to break through the high pressure and it looks like there is a good chance this will bring some rain to all of California.
Looking now over to the southwest where low pressure will settle into Arizona today and tomorrow. This will be a relatively dry system for Arizona. It will bring some cloudiness and windy conditions to the southwest particularly along the Colorado River Valley through this evening. Saturday there will still be some high cloudiness but the winds should abate.
The southwest could see some rain about the middle of next week as that low moves into California and then east into Arizona.
Well that’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the forecast for the next 3 days is to see 18-24 knot winds in the afternoon. The southern coast of Baja should see very moderate winds today then pick up to the 17-20 knot ranges Friday and Saturday.
That being said with virtually now gradient in the Sea today I’m thinking that the forecast wind values may be a little high this afternoon. We’ll see?
Temperatures will be in the mid to low 70s today. Here in el Burro cove the average February high is 72 degrees, a bit cooler then January which met its average of 74 degrees last month.
If that sort of thing interests you, my web page has the daily conditions here in the cove from 2003 to the present posted under Archives.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that in the past 24 hours a few scattered bands of whispys have passed over the Baja peninsula into the Sea and this will most likely continue today.
Off the west coast of the peninsula there are mostly debris clouds emanating from an area of disturbed weather WSW of the cape. They extend the length of Baja and I can see a few stragglers moving up into the southern California deserts and SW Arizona this morning.
Looking south of the cape I can see that from around Mazatlan to Acapulco they have seen a mix of whispys and fluffys over the past 24 hours and what looks like rain producing clouds passing though the Manzanillo area early this morning. No rain was reported by reporting stations along the Riviera for the past 24 hours though.
These passing clouds will continue today but I’m not seeing the rain producing cells off shore this morning.
Looking now at the Gulf of Tehuantepec where there is still a moderate gradient between the western Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific that is producing brisk winds through the Chivela pass into the Gulf. No advisories are in the forecast but winds in the 20-25 knot ranges will be present during the 3-day forecast period.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific Basin this morning I can see there is not a lot of activity along the ITCZ/monsoon trough. Most of the convection is in that area that is SW of the cape this morning. Looking out past therm it looks like mostly high whispys all the way out to Hawaii this morning.
That about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America of America where the weather-maker for the west coast is a front that is moving into the Seattle area this morning. Proceeding the front rain and mountain snow extend south to northern California. The bay area and the Sacramento area will be seeing light rain this morning.
The front is a fast mover and by this evening it will be moving into the Great Basin. High pressure will fill in in the wake of the front and the state and it looks like the entire west coast will dry out into the weekend.
Southern California in the LA Basin will see some cloudiness as this system passes through to the north this morning then clearing this afternoon.
Tomorrow as the high pressure ridge amplifies along the coast surface high pressure will be building in the Great Basin giving cause to clear skies and a warming trend for the west.
That’s the good news. The other news is when you have high pressure over the Nevada plateau and somewhat lower pressure over southern California it becomes gusterly in the southland. So gusterly conditions are in the forecast for the southland later in the week.
Looking now over to the southwest that system moving through to the north will bring cooler temperatures today along with gusterly winds to the area into Friday. High pressure and warmer temperatures are forecast to return this weekend.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the Sea will see moderate winds for today and tomorrow and then Friday most of the Sea will see winds in the 20 knot ranges in the afternoon.
Temperatures today will be in the mid 70s for the northern and central Sea and the southern Sea will see some 80s today.
