.Looking down into the Sea this morning the 24 hour loop is showing no cloudiness in the Sea.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera and from around Manzanillo south to Acapulco they will be seeing some scattered clouds pass over all day. This image is showing a well defined low that is currently about 580 miles south of Manzanillo this morning. The National Hurricane Center has advised that there is an 80% chance of this area become depressed today and a high chance of it developing into a hurricane during the next 48 hours. 80% of the forecasting models are showing the track to continue moving NW or WNW. Talk about timing, tomorrow is the official start of the Eastern Pacific basin hurricane season.
All of the Met Blogs I have read for the past couple of days have been saying things like, “water’s too cold. The 26°C thermo cline is nearly 1000 miles south of Cabo San Lucas, can’t support a hurricane”. Well “hoop-de-do” they may be wrong. We’ll know probably later today. Even if we do have a hurricane all the historical records I’ve looked at are not showing one approaching the cape area this early in the season.
OK, moving on and looking at the Gulf of Tehuantepec. Early this morning the National Hurricane Center issued a Gale warning for the Gulf. Winds are expected to be below Gale Force this afternoon but will remain at 20-30 knots through tonight before diminishing to less and 20 late tomorrow.
That’s what’s going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where high pressure has most of the inland valleys along the west coast in the 80s today and a bit cooler along the coast.
Southern California will have a series of weak lows every couple of days moving through. They will cool things down a bit as they move through. With the return of high pressure it warms back up again. Very pleasant conditions all along the west coast for the upcoming week.
Looking now over to the southwest where temperatures will sour again today. Yuma will see 108 today and Tucson 101-102 for the next couple of days. Later in the week a weak system moving through the Great Basin will cool things down a bit however the temperatures will remain above average for the week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the northern Sea moderate NE winds today.
The Sonoran coast south to Guaymas brisk NW winds today.
The central Sea moderate NE today, moderate SE or E tomorrow and then strong southerlies on Wednesday
The southern Sea moderate NE or E today. Tomorrow and Wednesday moderate southerlies.
Again yesterday the afternoon temperatures went up a degree or two. Several locations made the century mark. Today will be about the same with a few more locations topping the 100 degree mark this afternoon.

73s Y’all
