.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the cape area cleared of clouds yesterday morning and the entire sea has been pretty much free of any cloudiness since then.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where that moisture plume that was over the cape area yesterday morning has moved south of the cape and the long narrow plume is now spread out from around Mazatlan to Manzanillo this morning. The plume is scattered and broken so it looks like they will be seeing a mix of whispys and a few dark bottomed clouds until late afternoon.
Looking further south where the Tehuantepec continues to have very moderate winds extending out over the 3-day forecast period.
Taking a quick look out along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough this morning I can see that there is a lot of heavy convection along the zone. There is about 1500 miles of solid heavy thunderbumpers working along the zone 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 a low spiraling in Gulf of Alaska, another low about half way down the British Columbia coast and one just poised off the Washington coast. These three systems, one after another, will be bringing valley rain and snow to the Cascades all week.
Extreme northern California will most likely see some rain from the system now in the Gulf of Alaska on Thursday and Friday.
For the Bay area and the rest of northern California it will remain dry and warm during the week.
Looking now at southern California Grey May is the order of the day for the southland coastal areas. Thick fog will retreat off shore very late in the mornings perhaps bringing sunshine to the beaches in the afternoons. Most inland areas will be seeing sunshine all day.
Looking now over to the southwest where temps will be in the mid 90s most of the week and perhaps break the century mark next weekend. This image is showing clear skies and the forecast is for that to continue all week.
That’s what is going on the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the 3-day forecast period will be very pleasant. The northern see will be seeing brisk southerlies for the next 3 days. The central sea moderate easterly or northeasterly and the southern sea light winds with a western component.
I don’t see any clouds on the horizon so it looks like abundant sunshine is also in the forecast.
Afternoon temperatures should be in the mid to high 80s today.
Looking at the monthly data. The sunrise and afternoon highs were only one degree lower than the April norms here at the Cove. 66 and 85 were this months figures so a pretty normal April. 77 and 88 are the May norms for the sunrise and afternoon temperatures
The El Burro Chamber of Commerce is giving the last day of April 4 stars.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the northern Sea has cleared of any cloudiness.
That moisture plume moving up from the ITCZ/monsoon trough that blanketed the Sea with overcast yesterday has narrower due to the diminishing amount of convection along the zone from around 120 west.
This morning there is still rather heavy thunderbumper activity from Central America out to around 120 along the zone and the clouds being generated from these are moving NE toward the southern Baja coast this morning. The most northern edge of this plume is around Santa Rosalia and it looks like the plume is slowly sliding south.
Should this continue the central Sea could see some sunshine this afternoon.
The southern edge of the plume is around the cape and as of 5am the Mexican Riviera did not appear to be seeing any of this plume. That however could change if the plume slides south. We’ll see?
Looking now south to the Tehuantepec where the reporting station at Salena Cruz on the northern shore of the Gulf was showing 20-25 knot winds. The winds in the Gulf of Tehuantepec are forecast to diminish to less than 20 knots by this afternoon however the Seas will still be around 8 feet. The seas should lay down over the next couple of days and perhaps open a crossing window by Sunday. 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 where that low that dropped out of the Gulf of Alaska will be bringing rain to the Great Northwest well into next week.
Northern California will see that Pacific Storm moving out of the bay area this morning and bringing rain to the Sacramento Valley, the foothills and the Sierras today. Snow levels are forecast to drop to around 6000 feet later this morning with chain requirements most likely over the northern Sierra passes.
The high elevation passes could see wind gust to 50 mph. The California delta will also be windy with gusts in the 20-30 knot ranges.
The system should pass to the east by later tonight.
Looking now to southern California where the system has already moved out of the area with just a few lingering showers in the wake today. Tomorrow into the weekend will be dry and with a warming trend.
With the return of high pressure to the region they can also expect to see the the return of morning coastal fog.
Looking now over to the southwest where this image is showing most of the wet clouds moving NE out of California into Nevada and not East into Arizona. Arizona will however see some cloudiness at least this morning as the cold front moves through the state. The forecast is for a chance of rain. However looking at this image it looks like the chances are slim for the lower deserts and the Tucson area.
Anyway by late this evening the front will have moved off to the east and tomorrow will remain cool before returning to the lower 90s this weekend. High pressure will build over the region into the upcoming week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the northern Sea will see moderate winds over the next 3 days except this morning when that front comes through.
The central Sea ballpark 20k winds over the 3-day forecast period with Saturday’s winds having a southern flavor.
The southern Sea moderate winds with Saturday’s winds swinging to the southwest.
Sky conditions in the northern Sea will be clear. Sort of iffy about the central Sea. I just looked at the sat image and the plume has not moved south in the past 2 hours. The southern see looks like they will continue be overcast again today.
Temperatures today will be about the same as yesterday and be in the mid to high 80s.

.Looking down into the Sea of Cortez this morning I can see that most of the Sea will be cloudy today.
Along the ITCZ/monsoon trough from around 100w to way out to around 150 there is considerable convection building. A rather brisk west/east flow in the basin is bringing all this convection to around 120 where it heads directly NE toward the Baja coast. The cloud mass has doubled in size since yesterday morning and stretches from around 8N to central California this morning.
Yesterday morning I thought that the mountains along the Baja peninsula would block these clouds from passing over into the Sea. Wrong! This morning most of the Sea is blanketed with multi level clouds.
These clouds extend eastward and cover most of the Sonoran coast this morning as well.
What a difference a day makes.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where it looks like Mazatlan will see some cloudiness starting later this morning. Numerous scattered bands of clouds are breaking off of the main plume and are drifting toward the mainland coast and it looks like all along the Mexican Riviera they will from time to time see patches of cloudiness.
The web cams showed overcast in this Sea as well as along the Riviera this morning.
Looking now at the Gulf of Tehuantepec where the Gale advisories have been lifted however the winds will continue to be in the 25-30 knot ranges today. The winds will decrease to around 20 knots tomorrow as the gradient decreases. Friday the winds are forecast to be less than 20. Early next week could be the first comfortable crossing dates.
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 a big honk’n low moving down the British Columbia coast this morning. The folks in the Great Northwest will be putting away their golf clubs and bringing out the umbrellas until early next week after two days of sunshine.
Northern California will see rain along the coast and the inland valleys starting later today and tomorrow. Snow levels will dip to around 6000 feet tonight into tomorrow and affect travel in the Sierra passes. Thunderbumpers are forecast from the bay area to Sacramento and the foothills this afternoon. Winds over the passes are forecast to reach 50 mph later this afternoon and tonight. The Storm will pass to the east on Thursday evening.
Looking south I can see the other low swirling about 300 miles off the southern California coast. It will move ashore later this morning bringing rain, heavy at times, to southern California. This is a very wet system picking up a lot of tropical moisture from the moisture plume moving up the Baja peninsula. They could see as much as an inch and a half of rain before the system passes to the east tomorrow.
Looking now over to the southwest where I can see that the moisture plume from the Pacific has moved over southern and up into Nevada and into western Arizona this morning. The clouds will thicken during the day and blanket the area by this evening.
A considerable 24 hour temperature swing in many locations. For example the forecast high for Tucson today is 94 and tomorrow around 79 after record highs of 101 and 100 on Sunday and Monday.
The Pacific Storm will move into Arizona early tomorrow bringing a good chance of rain to the region. Strong winds will proceed the front tomorrow morning.
The system will exit the region on Thursday night and then dry and warm conditions are forecast into the weekend.
Well, spring storms to the north of us and probably as far south as Ensenada tomorrow.
Back on this side of Fence that cloudiness blanketing the Sea gave us a great sunrise this morning painting a mirror smooth Concepcion Bay brilliant shades of orange, red and fuchsia.
Today the sea will be seeing moderate winds. Tomorrow the northern Sea will continue to see moderate winds however the central Sea will see brisk to strong winds tomorrow. The southern Sea will continue to see moderate winds over the 3-day forecast period.
The overcast kept most of the sunrise temperatures about the same as yesterday however most of yesterday’s highs were down a few degrees from the day before. All in all a very pleasant day.
Today will be overcast and the temperatures in most locations in the Sea will be in the mid to low 80s.

Sea of Cortez Weather for 04/24/12

By: Geary, 13:13 GMT le 24 avril 2012


Tuesday, April 24, 2012

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the skies have been clear for the past 24 hours but it looks like that could change.
Looking south to the ITCZ/monsoon trough there is considerable convection all along the zone this morning that is producing abundant clouds that are moving northeast in the general direction of Baja. The area of cloudiness is about the side of Mainland Mexico and the leading edge of these clouds is about 500 miles west of Baja. Within these bands of clouds I can see numerous thunderbumpers working.
What it looks like will happen is that the mountains along the west coast of the peninsula will prevent most of these clouds from passing over into the Sea. The main body is inching northward along the coast and most of this cloud mass will miss Baja Sur all together and move ashore in northern Baja. We’ll see?
I however would not be surprised if we started to see some of these clouds later this morning or early afternoon.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera it looks like from around Cabo Corrienties north they should be seeing some of this cloudiness later today.
That’s what’s gong on in our hood this morning. Looking now north to the west coast of America where it’s even more interesting.
The entire west coast is in a transition day. Mostly cloudy along the coast today. Tomorrow the entire west coast will be seeing rain.
Portland is forecast to have thunderbumpers tomorrow.
There is a wet late spring Storm about 450 miles west of Los Angeles this morning that is due to arrive in southern California tomorrow.
I can see another low that has dropped out of the Gulf of Alaska and it looks like it will merge with the system that is off of the California coast this morning.
So we will have a wet rather unstable air mass descending on southern California tomorrow. Southern California can expect rain, heavy at times, thunderbumpers and snow at the higher elevations.
It is forecast to be a fast mover and by Thursday it should have exited to the east with just a few lingering showers.
Looking now over to the southwest where a weak front moved through the northern portion of the state generating isolated showers and thunderbumper activity across eastern Arizona and the lower Great Basin.
This image is showing all of Arizona to be cloud free this morning. High pressure remains over the region however it will weaken as that Pacific Storm approaches.
Today and tomorrow temperatures will be down a few degrees as high pressure shifts east.
Then tomorrow night that Pacific Storm that the forecasters are calling a vigorous spring Storm will arrive with the potential for thunderbumpers and brief periods of heavy rain tomorrow night into Thursday afternoon.
The associated cold front will likely move to near the Colorado River by Thursday morning. The southwest can also expect blowing dust and lightning during the passing of this Storm. It should exit to the east by Thursday afternoon.
Dry and warmer weather is expected Friday into the weekend.
That’s what is gong on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like we could be seeing some cloudiness later today.
That cold front moving into southern California tomorrow will certainly bring a chance of rain to northern Baja. It could extend as far south as Gonzaga bay in the Sea.
April showers….Perhaps?
Wind-wise it looks like these very moderate winds will be with us for at least for the 3-day forecast period. That being said Thursday with the cold front passing to the north the winds, mostly in the central Sea, will be elevated at bit. Most likely less than 20 knot though.
Sunrise temperatures were down a few degrees this morning and yesterday’s highs were also down a few degrees in most locations. Today should be just about like yesterday wind and temperature wise.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez has been pretty much cloud free for the past 24 hours.
Off the west coast of the Baja peninsula a 1500-2000 foot layer of heavy fog hugs the coast from around Abreojos north to San Francisco bay area this morning.
This image is showing that fog bank extending inland and it looks like that area around Constitution is fogged in this morning. The fog extends northward inland staying mostly west of the mountains this morning. Mag Bay is also foggy. I though the fog could extend across the peninsula to the La Paz area this morning however checking the web cam in La Paz it just showed some isolated patches of clouds to the east. The web cam at Cab Falso also showed clear skies along the coast so it looks like that fog bank did not extend that far south.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where heavy convection along the ITCZ/monsoon trough is creating numerous bands of clouds that are drifting toward the mainland. Most of these bands of clouds dissipate before reaching shore but it looks like from time to time from around Cabo Corrienties south they will see scattered high whispys today.
Looking further south where high pressure over the western Gulf of Mexico is keeping a strong gradient over the Tehuantepec isthmus again this morning. 40 knot winds in the Gulf are forecast to last until tomorrow afternoon. The Gale warning will then be down tomorrow however the winds will continue for a couple of days in the 25-30 knot ranges.
That’s what is gong on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where I can see that that cold low has dropped out of the Gulf of Alaska and is now swirling around 1500 miles off the central California coast. It is due to make landfall on Wednesday bringing rain, heavy at times, to the entire west coast Wednesday and Thursday.
In the meantime high pressure along the coast is being pushed east cooling the state down from yesterday’s highs. By Wednesday the temperatures will have dropped as much as 10 degrees from yesterday.
A quick glance at the top of this image is showing that that the Great Northwest will have a couple more days of golf weather then rain into the weekend.
Southern California will remain cool along the coast due to coastal fog that has moved inland overnight. Inland temperatures will remain above normal until Wednesday when the cold front arrives. It will bring scattered showers and possible thunderbumpers through Thursday and exit the region on Thursday night.
Looking over to the southwest where high pressure will be keeping unseasonably warm afternoons though mid week. The Pacific cold front is due to arrive on Thursday providing some cooling with a chance for showers or thunderbumpers late Wednesday night into Thursday. The system should exit to the east on Thursday night and dry and warmer weather is expected Friday into the weekend.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like another spring day is in store for us today.
The northern Sea should have moderate southerlies today. The central Sea moderate NE and the southern Sea light to moderate northwesterlies today.
All the sunrise temperatures in the Sea of Cortez were either 74 or 75 degrees this morning. Yesterday’s highs in the Sea were in the mid 90s. Today should be about the same.
The Mexican Riviera should see the low 80s today.
In general this week looks pretty nice right now. Thursday when that cold front moves through the southwest we should see some elevated winds on that day but other than than spring is springing.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez has been cloud free again for the past 24 hours.
Looking over to the Mexican Riviera where I can see a long broad plume of what look like mostly whispys moving across the basin and making landfall from around Cabo Corrienties south to Acapulco this morning.
Looking further south to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where there will be a full blown Tehuantepecker this weekend extending perhaps to Tuesday. 40 knot winds extend west of the Gulf into the Eastern Pacific Basin about 800 miles out. So right now it looks like the crossing window will be closed at least until mid week. We’ll see.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north, way north to the Gulf of Alaska this morning where I can see the low swirling in the Gulf. It is forecast to start it’s sojourn south tomorrow bringing rain to the Great Northwest.
Tuesday it will sink further south and bringing a good chance of rain to extreme Northern California.
By Wednesday the entire west coast should be see rain that will last until the weekend.
That’s what is going to happen later this week. Today the entire west coast is enjoying sunshine and warm temperatures. Today will be the warmest day of the week with a cooling trend starting tomorrow with the approach of the cold front.
Looking over to the southwest where temperatures along the desert floors and around Tucson will be about 101 today. Yuma 104. Today will also be the warmest day of the week for the southwest. High pressure will start to weaken tomorrow with the approach of the Alaskan cold front. There is a good chance for showers or thunderbumpers Wednesday night into the day Thursday.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like we will be having another delightful spring day.
Moderate northerlies are on tap for the 3-day forecast period. Today will be the nicest of the next three days with very moderate northerlies.
Tomorrow and Tuesday the winds will be in high teens for the Central Sea, the southern Sea and along the Sonoran coast from just north of Mazatlan to around Puerto Penasco.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that we have had another cloudless day in the Sea of Cortez.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera: I have been mentioning for the past couple of days about the very active thunderbumper activity along the ITCZ/monsoon trough and clouds moving off the zone and drifting toward Mexico and not quite making it there. Well this morning the plume is just barely making it and from around Manzanillo to Acapulco they will be seeing some scattered high whispys during the day.
Looking further south to the Tehuantepec where as I mentioned there is a unseasonably cold cold front swinging through the Gulf of Mexico and the tail end of this low will give cause to a Tehuantepecker this weekend and perhaps into Tuesday. Gale force winds will extend west out into the Eastern Pacific Basin about 800 miles over the weekend. Looks like a good time to stay in port.
That’s it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where the Great Northwest will be enjoying a rain free weekend. Sunshine in Seattle. How rare!
Northern California will be dry and warm over the weekend with temperatures in the Sacramento and the San Joaquin Valleys seeing temperatures in the mid 80s today.
Southern California will also be warm inland however along the coast pea-soup fog hugs the coast from just south of Turtle Bay to central California.
Looking now over to the southwest where under strong high pressure they will be seeing near record temperatures this weekend. Tucson reaching 100 and Yuma 105 tomorrow.
They will see some cooling later in the week as the next Pacific Storm moves through the northern portion of the state. In this image I can see the swirl of the big low in the Gulf of Alaska that will arrive in the Great Northwest on Tuesday and slink down the coast on Wednesday perhaps bring some showers to southern California and then swing NE and probably just brush the northern part of Arizona on Thursday. Anyway that’s what it is looking like right now. We’ll see?
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like another spring day is in store for the Sea of Cortez and the Baja peninsula. Very moderate winds in the Sea today.
One model showed the wind barbs looking like the game Pick-up-Sticks with the barbs pointing all different directions. So from what ever direction it comes from today it should be light and variable. That’s a term I don’t get a chance to use very much.

One final note: President Calderon of Mexico announced that Mexico City is now on Yellow Alert as the Volcano just north of the city is now spitting ash and molten rock. I looked at a night-time video of the eruptions this morning and you could see fire shooting out the top to the mountain. The video showed distribution centers passing our bottles of water and surgical style masks to keep our the fine dust.
Authorities are already preparing evacuation plans and shelters should the eruptions escalate. The last major eruption forced thousands of people to flee their homes in 2000.
I’ll keep you posted for further developments.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the skies have been clear for the past 24 hours.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera I can see that they too are cloud free. The only clouds in the basin are from rather active convection along the ITCZ/monsoon trough this morning. Like the past several days scattered bands of clouds move north off the zone and are picked up by the west/east flow in the basin and drift toward Mexico and Central America. Again this morning it looks like most will dissipate before making it to shore.
That being said this image is showing some cloudiness over the Gulf of Tehuantepec where it looks like the crossing window will be closed this weekend. A strong cold front is forecast to move across the Gulf of Mexico tonight and tomorrow causing Gale force winds to funnel through the Chivela pass and into the Gulf and out into the Eastern Pacific Basin a couple hundred miles. This sustained period of high winds will allow the seas to build to 12-13 feet.
That’s what is going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where Seattle may see sun this weekend. Today however the Great Northwest will be having mostly light rain clearing tonight.
Northern California will be warm and dry with inland temperatures in the mid 80s today
Southern California under high pressure will continue to warm up inland. Coastal fog lasting until mid morning will keep the temperatures moderate along the coast. The next weather feature is not due until early next week so the southland will be enjoying a week of mostly sunshine.
Leaving California and looking now over to the southwest I can see that the skies are clear under high pressure. The region is forecast to remain dry and have near record high temperatures into early next week.
Right now the models are showing a cold front arriving along the west coast early next week. The southwest will not see any rain from this system but it will cool things off of bit while it passes to the north.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the northern end of the Sea along the Sonoran coast will see today’s strongest winds however they will be less than 20 knots.
The central Sea will be see moderate northerlies today and tomorrow then Sunday they will pick up a bit with a return of a day of southerlies.
We in the “Tweener” months, April and May when our weather influences shift from the north to the south. We will be seeing a mix of moderate northerlies and moderate southerlies for the next 60 days or so while we wait for the thermal low to heat up over the Yuma area. When that happens our winds will be predominately southerly for the rest of the summer. The El Burro Chamber of Commerce puts 4 stars by these months.
Temperatures today for the northern Sea ballpark mid to the high 70s, the central and southern Sea high 80s to the low 90s.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning it looks like another cloud free day.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera there are no clouds along the west coast of Mexico either.
Looking now at the Gulf of Tehuantepec where they will be seeing 20-30 knot winds today diminishing tonight. Tomorrow’s winds in the Gulf should be less than 20 however it will take most of the day for the Sea to flatten out again. Today the seas will be in 8-9 ft ranges.
Looking out along the ITCZ/monsoon trough I can see moderate scattered convection along the zone this morning with a few clouds moving off the zone and getting caught in the west/east flow in the basin and drift toward Mexico. Most will dissipate before making landfall.
That’s it for the God’s eye view of our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where this image is showing the Storm track just to the north of the California/Oregon border.
A cold front will be moving through Washington State today bringing valley rain and light snow to the Cascades.
Northern California will be seeing mostly sunshine today under building high pressure.
Southern California will be seeing above seasonal temperatures this afternoon after the coastal morning fog burns off.
This image is showing a fairly heavy fog bank hugging the coast from Turtle Bay north to around Pt. Conception on the central California coast.
Looking now over to the southwest where Yuma will be the hot spot over the weekend with temperatures in the 102-103 ranges. The rest of southwest Arizona will be in the high 90s. No rain is expected in the next week as the Storm track is well to the north.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like moderate winds into the weekend.
Today moderate afternoon southerlies. Tomorrow after the front passes through Arizona the winds will swing back to the north and continue to be in the moderate ranges for the next couple of days.
So spring looks like it is springing. The sunrise temperatures are starting to rise a bit. We should be seeing afternoon highs in the high 80s perhaps a few 90s in the cape area over the next couple of days.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that there has been no clouds pass over the Sea in the past 24 hours.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera: Same thing there. The only clouds in the Eastern Pacific Basin area along the ITCZ/monsoon trough where it is fairly active again this morning. There are a few clouds moving off the zone and drifting toward Mexico but most will dissipate before making landfall.
The forecast for the Tehuantepec indicates that there is a potential for 20-25 knot winds today through tomorrow. The Salena Cruz station on the northern bank of the Gulf was showing only 7 knot winds at 5:30 this morning though.
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 988 low poised off the Washington coast. This low and the associated cold front have dropped down from the Gulf of Alaska in the past 24 hours and will be the first of several storms that will keep the region from the California/Oregon border to British Columbia wet all week.
The rest of northern California will be warming up and be dry for the rest of the week.
Southern California under high pressure will see temperatures 5-10 degrees above normal into the weekend with plenty of southern California sunshine. Next weekend it should cool off a bit with the passing of cold front to the north.
Looking now over to the southwest where strong high pressure will continue to build over the region resulting in mostly clear skies and a warming trend this week. Temperatures could reach the century mark this weekend.
Well, That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the Sonoran coast will have today’s strongest winds from around Los Mochas north to the north end of the Sea in the 20-22 knot ranges.
The rest of the Sea should be seeing moderate northerlies today. Then tomorrow and Thursday the winds will have a southern flavor. It seems like on the first day of these southern winds they tend to be on the brisk side probably around 18 knots. Thursday will not be quite as strong and be in the moderate ranges in the afternoon.
We should also start to see warmer temperatures this afternoon than the past two days. Temperatures will be in the high 70s to mid 80s today.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning it looks like the skies are clear this morning over the Sea.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera I can see they have pretty much clear skies as well. There will be some passing whispys from around Cabo Corrienties south during the day today. They are very high, thin and scattered so you may not even notice them.
Looking further south to the Tehuantepec where it looks like the crossing window will continue to be open during the 3-day forecast period with ballpark 12 knot southerlies forecast for the Gulf.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific Basin along the ITCZ/monsoon trough I can see numerous areas of heavy thunderbumper activity with a few bands of clouds breaking off and moving with the west/east flow in the basin and head toward Mexico. Like yesterday some will make it all the way and most will not.
That’s 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 systems that will moving either out of the Gulf of Alaska or across the Pacific that will be keeping off and on rain in the forecast from the California/Oregon border north to British Columbia for the rest of this week.
Northern California under building high pressure will enjoy a warming trend with abundant sunshine this week.
Southern California pretty much the same with high pressure in the forecast all week.
Looking now over to the southwest a strong high pressure system will build over the region and result in mostly clear skies with a strong warming trend this week. High temperatures on the lower deserts will warm into the 90s by Wednesday and perhaps hit the century mark on Saturday.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it will continue to be windy in the Sea today. Again today from around Los Mochas north to around Puerto Penasco the winds will be the strongest and be in the 23-27 knot ranges.
The Baja side of the northern Sea ballpark 20 knot northerlies.
The central Sea 24-27 and the southern Sea today 15-17 knot northerlies.
Tomorrow the winds will be a bit less then Wednesday the flow will be from the south for the entire Sea. So moderate southerlies on tap for Wednesday.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the cold front that came through yesterday afternoon did not bring any clouds with it. The Sea remains pretty much cloud free this morning.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera I can see that a thin plume of clouds best seen in the water vapor imagery has broken loose from the convection along the ITCZ/monsoon trough and is headed toward Mexico. The area between Cabo Corrienties and Manzanillo should start to see some whispys later today.
Looking further south the Tehuantepec is expected to continue to see ballpark 12 knot southerlies for the 3-day forecast period. It looks like the crossing window will remain open for the next couple of days at least.
Looking now out along the ITCZ/monsoon trough where I can see a number of hot spots with heavy thunderbumper activity mostly between 115 and 135 this morning. I can see several plumes breaking off and drifting toward mainland Mexico this morning. This pattern looks like some will make it and most will not within in the next 24 hours.
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 a big low developing in the Gulf of Alaska and the long narrow Northern Pineapple Express that stretches from around Hawaii to Seattle this morning will keep the Great Northwest wet off and on throughout the week.
Extreme Northern California, north of Redding, will also see off and on rain all week. The Sierras may have seen their last snowfall of the season from that Storm that just came through on Friday.
Yesterday morning a thunderbumper roared through the San Francisco bay area and a photographer took a shot of 4 separate lightning strikes hitting each of the 4 towers within a 20 second picture. Very impressive albeit a bit eerie.
The rest of California is under building high pressure and will be seeing warming temperatures and sunshine for the rest of the week.
Looking now over to the southwest where that cold front that moved thought the state yesterday is now moving into Nebraska. The swirl of the low can still be seen bringing some cloudiness to northern and central Arizona this morning however as the front moves further east this afternoon most of those clouds will disappear.
With the exit of the system to the east high pressure will fill in this week bringing dry conditions and a strong warming trend.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence It looks like today’s strongest winds will be along the Sonoran coast from around Los Mochas north to the northern end of the Sea.
The Baja side of the northern Sea will see moderate winds today however the rest of the Sea including the East Cape will be seeing ballpark 20+ northwesterlies today and tomorrow.
Interesting, as that cold front came through the Sea yesterday afternoon the temperature here in the cove dropped from 77 at 2 O’clock to 70 degrees at 6 O’clock. That’s 7 degrees in 4 hours. The wind chill seemed to even amplify this.
Most afternoon temperatures were down several degrees from the day before and they should be about the same today. So today should be a bit like yesterday and be in the mid to high 70s.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see a few high whispys passing over the far northern Sea. It looks like there are a few lingering fluffys around the Puerto Penasco area but that is about it for the Sea this morning.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where there are no clouds along the west coast of Mexico this morning.
Looking further south to the Tehuantepec where the Gulf is forecast to continue to have very moderate southerlies over the 3-day forecast period.
Looking out along the ITCZ/monsoon trough this morning I can see that there is fairly heavy thunderbumper activity all along the zone this morning. Although these are very active thunderbumpers they are not producing any clouds that would drift into the west/east flow in the basin and head toward Mexico.
The rest of basin just has scattered areas of high whispys this morning.
That’s it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where using the water vapor imagery I can see the low that brought weather to California for the past two days is centered over Los Vegas this morning. The tail end of the associated cold front will be swinging through northern Baja today. There may be some high cirrus associated with this front but this image is showing pretty much clear skies behind the front.
Looking up to the top of this image I can see that the Storm door is still open for the Great Northwest. It is currently raining from Redding north to Seattle this morning and northern California will see off and on showers well into next week. The same for Oregon and Washington.
Looking now south to southern California where lingering showers are in the San Diego area this morning and are forecast to completely diminish later this afternoon. Winds continue to be an issue with the strongest winds in the deserts and mountains. Small craft advisories have been posted in the San Diego area for today.
Looking now over to the southwest where that low swirling over Los Vegas is sending bands of clouds over most of Arizona this morning. It looks like Tucson has a chance of some showers today but most of the shower activity appears to be in the central and northern portion of the state.
There are very few clouds along the international border this morning. That being said Phoenix radar is showing some cloudiness and perhaps a shower over the Puerto Penasco area early this morning. Wouldn’t you know it, the reporting station in Puerto Penasco did not come up this morning so I can’t confirm this.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it will be windy today with that cold front swinging through northern Baja this morning and the rest of the Sea later today and exiting to the east during the evening hours.
Today the northern Sea will be seeing ballpark 30 knot winds, the central Sea ballpark 20 knot winds and the southern Sea the mid teens today.
Temperatures today will be cooler than yesterday and the highs will be mostly in the mid 70s however with the wind chill it will seem cooler.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see the northern Sea has had whispys passing over for the past 24 hours and it looks like they will continue all day. They may even become thicker as a Pacific Storm moves through southern California today and tomorrow.
The rest of the Sea looks to be cloud free.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where they too are pretty much cloud free all the way to Central America
The Tehuantepec is back to moderate southerlies that are forecast to last through out the 3-day forecast period.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific Basin it looks like the activity along the ITCZ/monsoon trough has diminished considerably
Over the past 24 hours.
Looking out toward Hawaii all I can see are a few whispys in the basin this morning.
That’s what is going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where the second of two storms to impact California this week is now working its way south today.
The low is currently centered around San Francisco this morning. The bay area and the upper Sacramento valley will be getting rain today and the Sierras will see another 6-8 inches of new snow today.
The associated cold front extends south to southern California and the southland will be seeing valley rain and mountain snow today and tomorrow.
For the southland wind is the major issue. Gusts to 50 are possible and small craft advisories have been posted for the coastal waters of southern California.
Looking now over to the southwest where with the approaching cold front high winds are forecast followed by a chance of rain over tonight and tomorrow mainly in the southwest part of the state. Much colder temperatures are forecast for tomorrow with afternoon reading in the sixties across the lower deserts.
The skies should start to clear tomorrow night leading to drier and warmer weather Sunday. High pressure will rebuild over the region next week resulting in a strong warming trend.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the tail end of that cold front should start to swing through Northern Baja tonight and move east into Sonora tomorrow afternoon.
So here is what it looks like right now. The northern and central Sea will see strong winds today and tomorrow. The southern Sea won’t be affected much. The northern Sea will see the strongest winds both today and tomorrow and be in the 30 knot ranges.
Sunday with the passing of the front the winds will relax and be in the moderate ranges.
Temperatures today for the central Sea will in the mid to high 70s while the cape area could see some 80s today.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see some whispys passing over the northern end of the Sea this morning. That looks like it will continue all day.
The central Sea looks to be cloud free.
Looking at the cape area with the 24 hour loop I can see that the moisture plume that was over the La Paz area yesterday morning slowly slid south during the day as it slowly dissipated. This morning water vapor imagery is still showing some high whispys around the cape but it looks like the plume is drying out.
Interesting as this moisture plume passed into eastern Mexico and the Sierra Madre Occidentals last night it brought a lot of thunderbumpers all up and down that range.
Looking at the Riviera this morning only the water vapor imagery is showing some high cirrus along the coast so they must be very high and very light.
The Tehuantepec is forecast to have light winds today and pick up to around 20 tomorrow the back to the moderate ranges again into next week.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific Basin and along the ITCZ/monsoon trough I can see there is considerable thunderbumper activity along the zone this morning with only the squalls out around 135-140 producing any clouds that drift into the rest of the basin.
That’s about it for our hood, so looking now north to the west coast of America where today will be a “Tweener”. Most of the west coast has overcast skies this morning awaiting the next system and associated cold front to move ashore.
I can see the low swirling off the Washington coast this morning. It will start to move ashore later today and start to slide south. This is a cold wet system and will be bringing rain and a couple of feet of new snow to the sierras from tomorrow through Saturday night. Snow levels are forecast to drop to 3000-4000 feet in northern California. Mt Diablo and the peaks around San Francisco will most likely see snow as well as the foothills.
The system should arrive in southern California later this evening and bring rain and snow to the mountains through Saturday morning.
Sunshine returns on Sunday along with building high pressure along the west coast.
Looking now over to the southwest where a cold air mass has settled over the southwest. They can expect a bit less wind today with the exit of the cold front that came through yesterday.
The next cold front will move through SE California and the Colorado River Valley tomorrow afternoon resulting in wind gusts to near 50 mph and an increasing chance of showers late tomorrow night into Saturday morning. Temperatures will dip 15-20 degrees cooler than early in the week as the front passes.
Sunshine and building high pressure will begin on Sunday with a strong warming trend forecast for next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence The southern tail of that cold front should swing through the northern Sea tomorrow bringing some cloudiness but most likely no showers into the Sea.
The northern Sea should see 15-20 knot northerlies for the 3-day forecast period.
The central Sea strong northerlies today and Saturday and moderate tomorrow.
The southern Sea strong to 20 knot today lying down to the moderate ranges Friday and Saturday.
All the sunrise temperatures were down a few degrees from yesterday and yesterday’s highs were all down as much as 10 degrees from the day before making yesterday almost seem chilly. Today, tomorrow and Saturday the daytime highs will also seem chilly after the warm temperatures we had early in the week. It looks like were looking at the mid to high 70s until Sunday.

JUST A NOTE. SERVER PROBLEM THIS MORNING. THE WEBSITE MY BE LATE UPDATING.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see a long moisture plume moving off the ITCZ/monsoon trough around 135 and stretching across the Eastern Pacific Basin taking aim on the central Sea last night and the southern Sea this morning.
This narrow band of mixed layered, scattered clouds is over the southern end of his peninsula this morning. There is a couple hundred miles of clear air behind it then more scattered clouds moving toward the cape. It looks like by late morning the clouds over the cape should pass to the east, cross the Sea and be making landfall again around Los Mochas.
The rest of the Sea is pretty much clear this morning however the far northern Sea may see some cloudiness as that cold front moves through southern California today. There won’t be much as the jet stream is picking up the clouds from this system and looping it back north into the Great Basin.
Looking now south to the Mexican Riviera it looks like Mazatlan may see some of that moisture plume pass over later this morning, and then be sunny like the rest of the Riviera all day.
There is still a moderate gradient along the Tehuantepec isthmus causing winds to gust to around 25 this morning. They are forecast to be less than 20 by late afternoon.
Looking out along the ITCZ/monsoon trough I can see there is still a lot of thunderbumper activity along the zone this morning. With the exception of that area around 130 most of the clouds that have developed are staying within the zone and not moving.
That’s what is going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where a pair of storms will impact California this week. The first one is arriving this morning bringing rain from Seattle to San Diego this morning along with snow to the Cascades and the Sierras.
Tomorrow will be the lull between the two storms then Friday into the weekend the second and more powerful Storm will move onto the west coast bringing more rain and snow down to around 4000 feet in the LA area. A winter weather advisory has been posted for the mountains of LA and Ventura counties today for elevations over 6000 feet.
The second Storm arriving on Friday will bring more rain and snow to the mountains of southern California with snow levels dropping to around 4000 feet on Saturday.
Small craft advisories have been posted today along the Southern California coast until tomorrow morning.
Looking now over to the southwest where this cold front will be bringing breezy to windy conditions and cooler temperatures today. There is a slight chance of showers in the SW corner of Arizona today.
Tomorrow will be more tranquil and then on Friday the second front will bring strong winds and more cooling temperatures along with a better chance of showers in the mountains and possibly in the lower deserts. Friday and Saturday the temperatures could drop as much as 15-20 degrees from today.
Sunday high pressure should start to rebuild over the southwest with temperatures raising again to the normal seasonal levels.
Right now it looks like the tail end of both storms will swing through the northern Sea. Close to the southern California border could see some rain but right now it looks like the northern Sea will just see some cloudiness but not much in the way of any rain.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like today and tomorrow will be seeing northerlies in 17-21-22 knot ranges in most of the Sea. Friday the winds should be back to the moderate ranges again.
Temperature-wise I don’t think we will see any temperatures in the 90s today. It looks like most locations in the central and southern Sea will be in the low to mid 80s today.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that a thin trail of whispys continues to pass over mostly the northern Sea. This plume starts around Hawaii passes over the northern Sea and then passes over SW Arizona.
The central Sea will see some of this plume and the southern Sea looks to be pretty much cloud free this morning.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where they are also cloud free this morning.
The Tehuantepec will see winds to 20 knots today then drop back to the moderate winds it has had for the past week.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific Basin I can see that the ITCZ/monsoon trough is again very active this morning. I can see numerous areas of thunderbumper activity however none of the clouds from these storms are moving off the zone.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where in this image I can see the counterclockwise swirl of that weather-maker low spiraling off the Oregon coast.
The associated cold front is bringing light showers to the Great Northwest this morning. It is forecast to move inland tomorrow and start to sag south bringing rain and high elevation snow to both the Cascades and the Sierras for the rest of the week.
As the system sags further south tomorrow night and Wednesday it will be bringing rain and high elevation snow to southern California.
Thursday should be mostly dry for California and then Friday into the weekend another more powerful Storm is forecast to move into California.
This second Storm is expected to bring snow levels down to around 4500 feet in the southland on Wednesday with the higher elevations getting a foot or more of new snow.
That’s good news to spring skiers. Big Bear Ski Resort reported that It will remain open until the 15th with one chair open to the top.
This Storm will also be bringing gusterly southwest winds to the mountains and deserts of southern California with gust up to 50 mph.
Looking now over to the southwest where high pressure will remain over the region through midweek with above average temperatures through tomorrow night. The cold front will move through the southwest on Wednesday bringing below normal temperatures along with gusterly conditions. There is a slight chance of showers from this system. The second system is advertized to arrive Friday into Saturday will bring a better chance of showers.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like we will be having another delightful day in and around the Sea of Cortes with moderate southerlies in the northern and central sea. Moderate NW on tap for the southern Sea. The next three days look to very pleasant as well, however the winds will be be moderate northerlies.
Temperatures in the central Sea south to the cape were all in the 80s yesterday. Today should be about the same. The Riviera continues to have daytime highs in the high 70s to mid 80s.
The only “IF” in the 3-day forecast period is whether this second storm will cross the border. Right now it looks like the tail end of the cold front will pass through the northern Sea. The forecast is for possible showers in Ensenada on Wednesday. We’ll see?

Easter Sunday, April 08, 2012

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that yesterday and during the night there has been bands of high whispys passing over the Sea. Looking out into the Pacific I can see a large area of cirrus that are slowly moving toward the peninsula and will most likely start passing over the peninsula early this morning.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where there are no clouds in the area. Using the experimental fog seeing satellite I could not see any fog along the coast either this morning. I did however see that inside of Turtle Bay there was a fairly thick fog bank.
Looking now at the Tehuantepec where they should start to see some winds funneling though the Chi vela pass later this evening and tomorrow the winds in the Gulf will be in the mid 20s then Tuesday they are forecast to be back in the moderate ranges.
Looking now at the ITCZ/monsoon trough where between 120 and 125 I can see an area very heavy thunderbumper activity. No clouds are drifting north from this area but it looks like thunderbumper city there.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where I can see a large swirling low parked off the Oregon, Northern California coast this morning. It is pushing a cold front toward the coast bringing steady rain to Oregon.
Tomorrow this bad boy is forecast to slowly start moving SE bringing more rain to the region. It will continue moving SE down the coast first bringing rain to Northern California on Tuesday and then rain to southern California on Wednesday.
The Sierras are forecast to have some late season snow that will be dropping down to around 4000 feet on Wednesday.
Meantime in southern California under high pressure will remain warm and dry today.
There will be a stronger storm arrive in California Thursday and Friday.
Looking now over to the southwest where dry high pressure will remain over the region through midweek with only periodic high clouds expected. Above average temperatures through Tuesday before that cold front moves through the region on Wednesday. The front will cool things off a bit and bring breezy to locally windy conditions as well as a slight chance of showers on Wednesday afternoon. High pressure and warmer temperatures will fill in the wake of the exiting low on Thursday.
Then a stronger low is forecast to move in from California on Friday and Saturday cooling things off again and bringing an even better chance of showers.
That’s what is going on to the north of us.. Back on this side of the Fence it does not look like the rain will extend south of the international border next week.
The forecast for today, Easter Sunday, is for moderate northerly winds throughout the Sea and the Riviera. Tomorrow about the same and then picking up just a bit on Tuesday.
Temperatures today will be in high 70s for the northern Sea and mostly in the 80s for the rest of the Sea today.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that high whispys continued to pass over the northern and central Sea most of yesterday and last night.
Early this morning the last of these high clouds will pass over the Sea and then the Sea should be pretty much clear for the rest of the day.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where there are no clouds in the area until you get deep in Central America.
Looking now at the ITCZ/monsoon trough I can see there is very little activity along the zone this morning just some isolated scattered showers here and there and that’s it.
The Tehuantepec continues to see very moderate winds and they are forecast to continue through the 3-day forecast period.
That’s what is going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where off the coast of Oregon and Washington is what the guys with the PHDs are calling a quazi Stationary low. It’s about 1000 mb and is forecast to remain stationary for a couple of days bringing rain to the Great northwest and extreme Northern California.
The concern is that this system will cause some flooding due to the repetitive showers as it lingers over the region.
Redding north south be affected by this Storm that should last until mid week then another system is proged to move onto the west coast.
The rest of the state will enjoy a slight warming trend under building high pressure until Wednesday when another low and associated cold front moving in from the Pacific.
Then Friday another potentially stronger system is forecast to blanket all of California.
Today in southern California it will be dry and mild today and tomorrow then they can expect to see showers starting Tuesday night into Wednesday.
Looking now over to the southwest where high pressure will stall over the region into early next week only producing some periodic high clouds along with above average temperatures. A cold front will move into the region on Wednesday bringing cooler and breezy conditions along with a slight chance of showers near the California border.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like we will start of the weekend with brisk winds in the central Sea this afternoon. A bit less than 20. Easter Sunday should be very pleasant with wind in the moderate ranges.
The southern Sea should see moderate northerlies over the Easter weekend.
The Riviera should have moderate winds from the NW today with long period swells from the SW at around 5 feet.
Someone asked me yesterday what I meant by moderate. Here is how I rate the winds.
Light 5-11, Moderate 12-17, brisk 18-20, Strong 21-25, very strong 25-35.
So all in all it looks like it should be a pleasant Easter Weekend. I’ll be dying Easter eggs today and hide them tonight. I can never find them all. It’s that short term memory thing.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez has had some passing whispys various times during the day yesterday and last night. This morning this skies are pretty much clear except that the cape are will see some high overcast later this morning that should last into the late morning hours.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where yesterday those clouds moving in from the Pacific steadily moved south during the day and for the most part the Riviera only saw some passing whispys during the day.
The activity along the ITCZ/monsoon trough has diminished considerably in the past 24 hours and is not producing the abundance of clouds that we saw yesterday morning along the Mexican Riviera.
Looking further south to the Tehuantepec where they continue to have very moderate winds in the Gulf today and for the 3-day forecast period. Today from the SW swinging to the NW tomorrow and Sunday.
That’s what is going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image the forecast for the Great Northwest is for off and on rain to continue well into next week.
Extreme northern California will also be getting wet again starting tomorrow and that should continue into next week.
Frost advisories have been issued for coastal cities from Eureka to the Canadian border this morning.
Central and southern California will have a weak cold front passing through the state today and then tomorrow the high out in the Pacific will shift east and high pressure will build over the entire state. This will bring on a warming trend for the state.
Meantime in the wake of that cold front there will be locally strong winds in southern California’s deserts and mountains. The front should exit the state later today.
Looking now over to the southwest where dry conditions will prevail into next week with the exception of a slight chance of showers in the higher elevations on Wednesday. There will be cooling today with a warming trend starting tomorrow. Sunday could see temperatures in the Tucson area in the low 90s.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the fence today’s strongest winds will be in the far northern Sea and it does not look like they will get as far as the central Sea where moderate winds are forecast for the 3-day forecast period. The southern Sea should be seeing light to moderate winds through Easter.
Spring appears to be springing with many locations in the central and southern Sea reaching the mid 80s yesterday. Temperatures today should be about the same.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see there has been a few whispys passing over mostly the northern Sea in the past 24 hours and the rest of the Sea has been pretty much cloud free.
Looking south to along the Mexican Riviera I can see they have been experiencing some cloudiness since late yesterday morning from around Puerto Vallarta to Zihuatanejo.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific Basin I can see the ITCZ/monsoon trough continues to be quite active and producing abundant moisture laden clouds that extends up from around 8N to around 21N. They mostly parallel the coast then a large portion of them make land fall around Puerto Vallarta and Cabo Corrienties. Within these clouds I can see many high topped clouds indicating showers or even some thunderbumper activity. However none of the real-time reporting stations reporting any rain accumulations for the past 24 hours. This cloudiness will continue all day.
Looking further south to the Tehuantepec I can see that the very moderate southerly winds will continue in the Gulf for at least the 3-day forecast period.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where I can see a deep trough of low pressure slowly moving in from the Pacific into the Great Northwest. This will be bringing rain and high elevation snow to Oregon, Washington and extreme Northern California today into early next week.
Central California has a trough of low pressure that will be passing through today that will bring cooler temperatures today along with strong gusterly winds to the mountains and deserts.
As this trough exits to the east warmer weather is expected for central and southern California starting tomorrow as high pressure fills in.
Next week another Pacific trough will bring cooler temperatures and a chance of rain later in the week.
Looking now over to the southwest where that low moving out of California will brush the northern portion of Arizona today bringing some cooling and breezy conditions to the southwest today. The front will also be bringing a mixed layer of clouds mostly this morning. With high pressure returning this weekend the Tucson area should see a warming trend with temperatures reaching the 90s on Sunday.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the northern Sea will see strong southerlies today. The central Sea moderate southerlies and the southern Sea moderate SW winds today. Tomorrow strong northerlies return to the northern and central Sea. The southern Sea very moderate NW winds tomorrow.
Temperatures started creeping towards the 80 degree mark yesterday and today we should see more locations inch into the 80s.

Sea of Cortez Weather for 04/04/12

By: Geary, 13:24 GMT le 04 avril 2012


Wednesday, April 04, 2012

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see a few whispys passing over the northern end of the Sea and in the 24 hour loop it looks like the skies have been clear over Baja for the past 24 hours.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where it has been mostly clear there for the past 24 hours but that could change later this morning.
The ITCZ/monsoon trough is very active this morning and between Central America and running almost to the cape, off shore, there are numerous very wet cells with many showing embedded thunderbumper activity.
At 5:30 this morning there was a large area of cloudiness between Cabo Corrienties and Acapulco that looked to be about 100 miles off shore and drifting toward the coast. At 7am they had moved closer to the coast. As these clouds move closer to the coast they appear to be breaking up and loosing their moisture so it looks like from around Cabo Corrienties to Acapulco they will most likely just see some scattered cloudiness today.
Looking further south to the Tehuantepec where the forecast if for the very moderate southerlies to continue throughout the 3-day forecast period.
Before leaving the region and looking further south to Central America I can see the first evidence of the southern jet this year. Jet stream analysis is showing rather weak upper winds accompanying it however it is directing a nice long plume of clouds over the southern end of Central America this morning.
OK, that’s what is happening in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where mostly light rain is falling from the upper Sacramento Valley north to British Columbia this morning. Listening to the Giants and the Oakland A’s game in Oakland last night they were having light sprinkles at game time.
The rest of the week it looks like the west will dry out. This weekend another period of wetness will blanket Oregon, Washington and northern California. I can see the low that will be bringing the rain is now rather stationary off the northern British Columbia coast this morning.
There is not much agreement in the models how far this system will move south along the coast. It’s possible for it to continue south into southern California. We should have a better picture tomorrow of what will happen this weekend in southern California.
Meantime in southern California there is a weak trough moving ashore this morning that will bring more coastal fog and gusterly winds through tomorrow night. High pressure will fill in the wake as this low moves east on Friday. A warming trend is forecast for the weekend.
Looking now over to the southwest where it will continue to be dry into next week. It will be a bit breezy tomorrow and Friday as a system brushes the northern portion of the state. As this system passed it will briefly cool off then under high pressure resume the warming trend.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence today the Sea will have moderate northerlies. Tomorrow the northern and central sea will see moderate southerlies and then Friday the northerlies will return and be just a tad stronger than today.
Yesterday’s temperatures, in most locations, inched up a degree or two and it looks like that will happen again today.

Sea of Cortez Weather for 04/03/12

By: Geary, 13:34 GMT le 03 avril 2012


Tuesday, April 03, 2012

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that with the exception of a few whispys passing over the central Sea late yesterday the skies have been clear for the past 24 hours.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where early yesterday there was some cloudiness from around Manzanillo south that band of clouds have moved further south and pretty much dissipated. Well I can see a few whispys around Zihuatanejo and Manzanillo but that’s it.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific Basin along the ITCZ/monsoon trough I can see there is not a lot of activity along the zone this morning as has been for the past couple of days.
Looking now at the Tehuantepec where the southern winds continue to be in the very moderate ranges, say 10-15.
That what is going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where at the very top of this image as well as the water vapor imagery I can see a well defined low spiraling in the western Gulf of Alaska.
This system will bring more rain and high elevation snow to Washington, Oregon today and northern California starting tomorrow. The Lake Tahoe area is forecast to have light snow tomorrow.
Central California will remain dry.
Looking south to southern California where high pressure will continue to bring warm and dry weather to the southland. That trough of low pressure to the north will bring some cooling later in the week then a warming trend will return this weekend as high pressure rebuilds over the area.
Looking now over to the southwest where it will continue to be warm and dry into the upcoming weekend. High pressure will be rebuilding over the region in the wake of that low that passed to the north yesterday.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the winds have been diminishing during the night and may not meet the forecast values for this afternoon for the central Sea. It looks to me that they will be in the moderate ranges with the Sonoran coast around Guaymas on the high end but less than 20. We’ll see?
The southern Sea will be in the moderate ranges today and further diminish tomorrow. The only fly in the ointment could be the pressure gradient between the high out in the Pacific and the low over the mainland. This could make the winds a bit stronger in the southern crossing this morning. That high is forecast to diminish later this morning.
I noted that all the sunrise temperatures were down a few degrees this morning from the day before and the winds kept the daytime highs a bit lower yesterday as well. Today we should see the highs inching back toward the 80 degree marks again.
So lots of sun, and moderate winds today. Sounds like spring is on the way.

Of note: Here at El Burro Cove normally at this time during Semana Santa (Easter week) this beach has been packed the families here for the week. This year there are just a couple of families here. Very strange. I’m wondering if it will fill in later in the week. We’ll see?
