.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see we have had another 24 hours of clear skies over the Sea of Cortez.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where for the past 5 days there has been a lot of heavy thunderbumper activity off their west coast. Yesterday morning this area was designated as invest 90 bringing it to the attentions of those organizations that watch tropical development. This morning the National Hurricane Center is saying there is about a 40% chance of this developing into a tropical depression within the next 48 hours. Even if this becomes a tropical storm the water out there is too cold to support much of a storm and it is way too cold for a hurricane to develop.
Meantime this area continues to send scattered plumes of clouds along the coast from about Manzanillo south.
Looking now at the Gulf of Tehuantepec where I can see a big honk’n thunderbumper working right over the top of the Gulf this morning. The Gulf will be experiencing a mild wind event through Tuesday with 20-25 knot winds in the Gulf with around 10 ft. seas.
Well that’s what’s going on in our hood. The first appearance of some tropical activity just 2 days before the official start of our tropical season.
Looking now north to the west coast of America where high pressure is providing pleasant weather in Oregon, Washington and northern California today.
In southern California seasonal weather will continue all week with minor fluctuations in the marine layer and inland temperatures. Every couple of days a weak low will move through the area cooling things down at bit then warming back up with the rebuilding of the high.
Looking at the water vapor imagery I can see the fog bank hugging the coast from San Francisco bay area to around Turtle Bay. It moves off shore during the day and then creeps back in at night.
Looking now over to the southwest where the word of the day is HOT! Heat advisories have been posted for the south west with temperatures reaching 107-108 in Yuma and around 101 in the Tucson area. The five day forecast is for the afternoon temperatures to hover between 101-103 for Tucson.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the northern Sea should see moderate northerlies today. The highest winds will be along the northern Sonoran coast to Guaymas.
The central Sea moderate winds today and picking up to around 18 knots tomorrow and back to the moderate ranges on Tuesday.
The southern Sea very moderate N or NW winds over the 3-day forecast period.
Temperature-wise the afternoon temperatures continue to rise a few degrees a day. The Baja Insider is still forecasting 107 for the middle of next week. We’ll see?

73s Y’all
