.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that we have had another 24 hours free of any clouds in the Sea of Cortez.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera I can see that there was some light thunderbumper activity back in the mountings to the east of Puerto Vallarta and the remnant clouds are drifting toward Cabo Corrienties and off shore this morning. There does not appear to be much in the way of moisture in these clouds now.
Looking further south to the Tehuantepec where the Gulf is currently clear of any cloudiness and there are none in the close vicinity so it looks like the Gulf will enjoy a pleasant day with light southern breezes forecast for this afternoon.
Looking now at the ITCZ/Monsoon trough that is pretty much snaking along 8N this morning. It is very active. There is an elongated low embedded within the zone that is very active. It is not forecast to develop into anything tropical but I’ll be keeping it on the back burner in our tropical kitchen for a few more days though.
Well there is not much else going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where as I mentioned the high pressure over the western conus will have several weak fronts move in from the Pacific. None of these will have much affect except to cool things off a bit as they pass. The exception is Washington State where they could see some light showers from a system moving through later in the week.
In the meantime the west coast will be enjoying seasonal May weather with temps in the low to mid 70s along the coast and mid to high 80s inland.
Southern California will be swapping our Grey May for June Gloom in a couple of days as fog continues to hug the southern California coastline until mid morning before retreating.
Looking now over to the southwest where the temperatures will be cranking up. By this weekend the Tucson area will be seeing temperatures as high as 106. Yuma sitting under that building thermal low will be in the 108 ranges. This weekend a cooling trend is anticipated into early next week along with continued dry conditions. Herferd was 8% early this morning.
Well, that’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence, in general, the next three days the winds should be in the moderate ranges with the exception of the Sonoran coast on Thursday. Right now it looks like they will be seeing ballpark 20 knot West or NW winds.
Today the northern Sea will see moderate southerlies, Wednesday and Thursday from the north.
The central Sea Today, Wednesday and Thursday should see moderate northerlies most likely NE.
The 3-day forecast period for the southern Sea will be light NW winds to continue in the afternoons. Also it looks like the La Paz area will be seeing moderate Cormwells again as the sunsets this evening.
Right now it looks like this great weather will continue into the weekend.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see we have had another 24 hours without any cloudiness over the Sea.
Looking now south to along the Mexican Riviera where it as been pretty much cloud free until you get down between Manzanillo and Zihuatanejo where several thunderbumper have built back in the mountains and then moved off shore during the night.
Further south I can see the Gulf of Tehuantepec has a small thumper working in the center but the rest of the Gulf is pretty much free of any clouds. The thumper out there right now is decaying and with no other clouds in the area it should be at least a pleasant morning for the Gulf. The light southerlies are forecast to continue throughout the 3-day forecast period.
Looking now out to the ITCZ/Monsoon trough which is snaking along between 8 and 10 north. There is considerable thunderbumper activity in the zone and there is an embedded low in the zone. This wave-like feature is forecast to continue to move westward during the next 24-48 hours and continue to be very active until it reaches around 115W where drier and more stable conditions prevail. Right now conditions do not appear favorable to any significant development of this system over the next 2 days. We’ll see?
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where it looks like high pressure is returning to the west coast and the entire western conus.
In northern California temperatures will start to rise tomorrow and by weeks end many inland locations will be up as much as 20 degrees from today.
Southern California under Grey May conditions along with several weak systems forecast to move through the area this week will not be doing much warming. Temperatures in the southland will be in the mid 70s all week.
Looking now over to the southwest where high pressure will bring dry conditions and the heat back. By next weekend the temperatures will be in the 100s again.
That thermal low over Yuma will have reestablished its self and temperatures there will be flirting with 110 degree temperatures in the afternoons by Friday.
They are also talking about some moisture creeping up into eastern Arizona bringing a chance of some mountain showers next weekend. That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the northern Sea will see mostly moderate NE winds for the 3-day forecast period
The central Sea mostly moderate NE winds for the 3-day forecast period
The southern Sea mostly light NE or NW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
Temperatures will start to creep back up a few degrees and be in the high 80s in most locations. Perhaps a few into the 90s today.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning with this image I can see the has been no cloudiness in the Sea of Cortez for the past 24 hours.
Looking now over to the west coast of the Baja peninsula the fog seeing satellite shows the marine layer along the coast has thinned out a bit with only patches of fog along the coast from around Turtle Bay north to central California this morning.
This next satellite image is showing the fog encroaching inland quite a ways from Cedros Island north.
One of these images must be showing FAKE fog. I wonder if I would be right if I reported the thinning fog bank extending inland a ways. Anyway its probably foggy along the coast this morning.
Looking now south to the Mexican Riviera where I’m hunting for Bud. There is not a clue that he has ever been in the area. Not a cloud, not a remnant low, nada! The only indication he was in the hood was a half inch of rain was reported in Puerto Vallarta yesterday.
Looking further south I can see there is considerable thunderbumper activity from around Acapulco south.
The Tehuantepec has had several thumpers working over the Gulf during the night and right now the Gulf seems to be clearing with all the cloudiness moving west out into the basin. The winds in the Gulf continue to be light and from the SE.
Looking now at the ITCZ/Monsoon trough which is snaking along between 8 and 10N this morning. Most of the thunderbumper activity is either over Central America or just off shore.
One last looks for Bud: Nope!
That’s what’s going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where the lows that have been moving through west have cooled things down all over the western conus.
By midweek a relatively strong upper ridge is forecast to build along the west coast. This will result in a robust warming trend from Wednesday into Thursday especially inland where highs are forecast to warm well into the 80s and lower 90s by Thursday with mid to upper 90s possible in the warmest southern inland valleys.
Meantime there will be a weak low moving though northern California on Memorial Day into Tuesday that will keep the north state cool.
In southern California a slight warming trend will begin today. They will be only slightly affected by the low moving through Northern California on Monday and Tuesday then warm back up again on Wednesday and Thursday. With the return of high pressure the coastal fog will thicken for the south land.
Looking now over to the southwest where cooler than average weather will continue today however temperatures will moderate back to near normal levels Memorial Day and Tuesday. By the end of the week they should be seeing temperatures around the century mark again.
The weather in the southwest will be dominated by highs over NW Mexico and Baja for the upcoming week.
Additionally the southwest could see a bit of moisture creep into New Mexico by next weekend with some spilling into eastern Arizona for a few mountain buildups. It won’t be long before we are talking about Arizona’s seasonally monsoons.
Ok that’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the northern sea will continue to see strong NW winds today. The strongest along the northern Sonoran coast.
The central Sea will also see strong NW winds in the 19-23 knot ranges this afternoon. Tomorrow and Tuesday the winds will diminish back to the moderate ranges.
The southern Sea moderate winds, N or NW for the next 3 days.
Temperatures have dropped back to seasonal norms in the Sea of Cortez. The nights are on the cusp of blanket weather and the afternoon highs in the mid to high 80s. The average temperature here in the cove for May is 88 degrees.
Today’s temperatures should be just about like yesterday and be in the mid 80s.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that there has been no cloudiness over the Sea for the past 24 hours.
Looking now south to the Mexican Riviera where Bud continues to act unpredictably. This morning the National Hurricane Center has plutoed Bud to a tropical depression and indicates that he will be a remnant low in the next 36 hours most likely sooner.
Satellite imagery is of not much help in locating Bud. He is somewhere either inland or off shore. There are hardly any clouds in the area but models show him moving north along the coast and we know how accurate they have been.
That looks like the only thing cooking in our tropical kitchen this morning so looking now north to the west coast of America where a couple lows are the weather makers for the west coast.
The first is moving out of Nevada into the Great Basin and keeping the bar there around 1000 for the next 24 hours. This will give cause to strong winds throughout the southwest.
The other low is moving out of southern California and will eventually end up in the Great Basin. Meantime this trough will continue moving through Southern California and will continue to bring gusty winds over the coastal waters this morning. The gusty winds will continue to produce steep wind waves making for hazardous conditions for small craft this morning. Winds will weaken later today through tonight. Weak to occasionally moderate onshore flow will prevail Sunday through Wednesday as a thermal low sets up near Needles with high pressure off the coast.
Looking now over to the southwest where that front moving into the Great Basin will cool things down in Arizona today. Temperatures in the low deserts will fall to the mid 80s this afternoon and begin to rebound tomorrow.
That front is also responsible for the gradient the will produce the high winds today and tomorrow. Red Flag fire warnings are posted all over the state. The state is bone dry with the humidity readings in the teens or less.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the northern Sea will see moderate northerlies today on the Baja side and strong to 35 along the Sonoran coast.
The central Sea pretty much 17-19 today increasing a bit tomorrow and diminishing a bit on Monday
The southern Sea will continue to see moderate winds with a western component for the next 3 days.
Temperature were again cooler yesterday. It looks like today will see temperatures in the high 80s to the low 90s.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see there were a few whispys passing over the Sea late yesterday afternoon but that was it
The Mexican Riviera is all about Himicane Bud. All the blogs and forecast that I have read in the past 5 days have been saying things like, “Probably won’t make land”, “Waters too cold to support a hurricane”, etc, etc. Well Brother Bud has not listened to any of this and is now about 100 miles west of Manzanillo as a Cat 2 hurricane with max sustained winds 95 knots with gusts to 115 knots.
Satellite imagery is no longer showing the eye and Bud has slowed down to around 8 mph and that would have it making landfall sometime tonight or tomorrow morning.
The cone of influence is forecast to be from around Puerto Vallarta south to Zihuatanejo and hurricane warnings are up for Cabo Corrienties to Manzanillo with tropical storm watches on either side of that.
Given the slow forward speed of Bud when it makes landfall torrential rainfall causing dangerous mudslides appears likely across portions of southwestern Mexico in the states of Michoacán, Colima, Jalisco and southern Nayarit regardless of the exact of the center.
Mazatlan, the southern crossing and the cape region will see increased seas in the 6-8 foot ranges starting today and for the next 2 days so I’d advise staying in port until Bud has lost its influence on the crossing area which will be about 3 days.
A lot is being written about Bud as being the earliest, the biggest, etc however I won’t go into to that now because of time restraints but needless to say the intensity of this storm caught a lot of folks by surprise and a lot more will be written.
Taking a quick look now south to the Tehuantepec where moderate southerlies continue for the Gulf.
That’s about it for our hood this morning so looking now north to the west coast of America where a cold low has descended from the Gulf of Alaska and has moved quickly down the west coast.
Seattle will see lingering showers today. Northern California will see lingering showers and thunderbumper today as the system moves inland.
Southern California could see some showers today but the main feature will be the strong winds that should last though tomorrow night.
Looking now over to the southwest, well first in the Great Basin where that Alaskan cold front moving in will keep the bar hovering around 1000 mb for the next couple of days giving cause to strong winds not only along the California coast but throughout the Great Basin and Arizona today and tomorrow. Winds are forecast to be in the 25-30 knot ranges.
This unseasonable strong cold front will keep the temperatures in Tucson area around 80 into the weekend. Temperatures will rebound on Sunday and be back in the 100s by the middle of next week.
Ok that’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence strong southerlies in the northern Sea until tomorrow morning then diminishing to mostly moderate NE into Memorial Day
The Central Sea moderate SE or SW today picking up tomorrow from the NE and a bit stronger on Sunday from the NE
The southern Sea the La Paz area will see 20 knot SW winds today diminishing tomorrow and Sunday from the NW.

Temperatures dipped as much as 10 degrees in most locations yesterday and it looks like they will be about the same today and be in the mid 90s for most locations.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see we have had another day free of any cloudiness.
On the outside of the Baja peninsula a persistent marine layer ranging from 500 ft to around 1500 feet hugs the coast from around Turtle Bay north to around La La Land.
Looking now south to the Mexican Riviera. It looks like Bud has obviously not been reading the advisories posted yesterday morning when they said he was unlikely to become a himicane. This image is showing a pretty defined swirl and a very weak eye and a cat 1 himicane this morning. He is forecast to continue moving toward the coast and make landfall Saturday just south of Cabo Corrienties.
While many models have Bud remain over water missing land or making it inland as a much weaker system its present strength and position warrants advisories for the coast of Mexico that have been posted by the Mexican government. In addition to the strong winds even a weakened Bud could produce widespread flooding.
Either way it looks like this weekend is going to be a gully-washer for the southwest coast of Mexico.
None of the models show Bud having any affect on Baja. We’ll be keeping an eye on the winds in the Southern crossing though through the weekend.
That’s what’s going on in 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 out of the Gulf of Alaska today and will be bringing rain as far south as the Bay Area by tomorrow.
By late Friday the low and associated cold front will have moved down the coast into southern California and they could see some light rain or drizzle. The major affect will be the temperatures will dip quite a bit and the increase in the winds in the mountains and deserts. The system will depart over the holiday weekend bringing dry and warmer weather back to the southland.
Looking over to the southwest where Red Flag fire warnings extend for the entire state. Very dry humidity and strong winds are keeping firefighters busy. At Hereford they have been having wind gusts to 56 mph all night tomorrow the winds are forecast to pick up a bit in the afternoon exasperating the problem.
Temperature-wise the highs will all into the 80s over the deserts by Saturday and then begin to warm on Sunday and return to seasonal norms by the middle of next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence in the northern Sea for the next two days they should see strong southerlies and then on Saturday strong northerlies.
The central Sea today and tomorrow strong (to 20 knots) southerlies and Saturday strong northerlies to 20 knots.
The southern Sea will continue to see SW winds mostly in the moderate ranges but could pick up to around 20 at La Paz tomorrow.
Interesting at 5 O’clock yesterday afternoon. The bar here in El Burro Cove was 1000 mb, humidity was 15% and the Temperature had just reached 106.
It looks like today the Sea will again see temperatures in the high 90s to the low 100s.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea has been cloud free this morning.
Fog agaom along The outhsied form Turtle Bay to sd this monirng.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera I can see that Tropical storm Bud which is about due west of Zihuatanejo has been sending bands of showers toward the coast from around Manzanillo south to Acapulco all night and they continue this morning.
Rain totals there were 4.5 inches since midnight. They were the only station that reported rain totals this morning.
Brother Bud is having a hard time trying to become our first hurricane this year. Right now it does not look like he is going to make it. His wind speeds are around 35-40 knot right now and are forecast to increase to perhaps 50 knots max. He is getting ready to hook a right today and head toward the coast and most likely make landfall Sunday as a very weak tropical storm or perhaps become a depression by then.
Meantime he has a very gentle spiral (of course no eye) and is sending waves of showers toward the coast. It looks like they can expect a lot of rain from this system though.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where as I mentioned lows will dominate the weather pattern for the remainder of the week.
The low moving from the east into the Great Basin will give cause to strong winds along the coast and the southwest with about a 17 mb gradient between the coast and the Great Basin
The British Columbia low will bring rain to the Great Northwest today and another one will move through next Sunday.
The first British Columbia low will dip south into northern California on Friday morning resulting in a substantial cool down Friday. There is some moisture associated with this system which could result in some light showers in northern California on Friday.
Looking now at southern California where the low moving into the Great Basin will increase the onshore winds through Thursday as well as cool things down for the southland. They can expect Fog and drizzle along the coast and gusterly winds in the mountains and deserts.
The British Columbia lows will be a player on Friday and Saturday bringing more cooling and more strong west winds. They could also see some light rain this weekend. Sunday should start a warming trend.
Looking now over to the southwest where very low humidity, hot temperatures and gusterly winds have put the red flag fire advisories up all over the state.
The high pressure ridge that brought hot temperatures to the region will depart today starting a cooling trend that will last into the weekend. It will only be around 102 in the Tucson area today. The airport in Tucson report 11% humidity there this morning. Bob station at Herferd was 9% at 5am.
A series of dry troughs will move through the southwestern conus today through Saturday, It will be breezy in the afternoons. Next week the lows will have departed the region and high pressure will bring a return of seasonal temperatures.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the entire Sea will see southerlies for the 3-day forecast period.
Today the northern Sea will see southerlies to 30 knots.
The central Sea at the northern crossing will see southerlies to around 20 and bit higher along the Sonoran coast. The rest of the central Sea should see moderate southerlies.
The southern Sea just moderate S or SW winds for the 3-day forecast period .
Temperature about the same as yesterday and be in the mid to high 90s with some locations breaking the century mark today.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see we have had no clouds in the Sea for the past 24 hours.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera it looks like they too have not seen any cloudiness for the past 24 hours.
The fog seeing satellite is showing a rather heavy fog bank hugging the west coast of the Baja peninsula from around Abreojos north to central California this morning.
Looking at the Gulf of Tehuantepec I can see that they have not only seen several rather large thumpers move though the Gulf this morning Salina Cruz on the northern shore of the Gulf reported Gale force winds early this morning. They are forecast to diminish later today.
Taking a look now to see what’s cooking in our tropical kitchen today. Still sitting within the ITCZ/Monsoon trough is Bud. He was upgraded to a tropical storm around 3am this morning.
The current forecast is for Bud to start moving north today tracking parallel to the mainland coast until Thursday then hook a hard right and head toward Zihuatanejo as a cat 1 himicane. Friday and Saturday Bud will most likely drop in intensity and make landfall Saturday as a tropical storm. The influence of Bud will be from around Puerto Vallarta south to Acapulco.
I sort of like the name Bud. That’s a real masculine name for a himicane, not like Favio which will be our 6th named storm this season. Favio sounds like a male stripper. You’d expect Favio to be sort of a “swishy” sort of storm. We’ll see?
I digress! That’s what is going on in our tropical kitchen so looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image I can see a wet cold front moving into Washington State this morning. This cold front and another due in late in the week will be responsible in part for the Temperature to dip along the coast as much as 10 degrees over the next 4 days. The other part of this equation is as that first cold front moves into the Great Basin high pressure will move east and low pressure will start to extend toward the coast.
Hopefully all this will sort itself out by the upcoming Memorial Day weekend. Right now it looks like after a gradual cooling down along the coast this week it will start to warm back up by this weekend. We’ll see?
Southern California will continue to see dense fog along the coast clearing later in the morning. It should be fair and mild in the southland today. Like the north state it will cool down until the weekend when the return of high pressure will bring a warming trend.
Looking now over to the southwest where the heat wave will continue thought tomorrow with temperatures in the Tucson area around 105 today.
Gusterly winds will return to the region tomorrow through Friday with temperatures moderating back toward seasonal averages as low systems move through to the north.
Well that’s what is gong on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence today the northern Sea will see moderate southerlies. Tomorrow and Wednesday strong southerlies
Today the central Sea will see moderate southerlies and tomorrow and Wednesday strong southerlies that should extend to just short of Loreto.
The southern Sea looks like light to moderate SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
Temperatures will be in the high 90s to the low 100s today.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez has been free of any cloudiness for the past 24 hours
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera I can see that there has been some clouds building back in the mountains behind Puerto Vallarta south to around Manzanillo that have been moving toward the coast. There does not look like they will get any rain just some cloudiness today.
A bit south of Acapulco there was a nice thunderbumper early this morning along the coast.
Looking now at the Tehuantepec I can see a couple of small thumpers working along the southern shore however most of the Gulf is cloud free this morning.
Looking now at the ITCZ/Monsoon trough where it is a hotbed of thunderbumper activity this morning from the Central American coast out to around 115.
Embedded in the ITCZ/Monsoon trough this morning is a low that that has been designated Tropical Depression 2 echo. Environmental conditions appear to be ripe for this to develop into our first hurricane of the season. It is forecast to be upgraded to a tropical storm later today and the name will be Bud.
The forecast models have Bud as a tropical storm slowly moving north then around Thursday turn toward the coast and make landfall next weekend as a himicane.
That’s what is going on in our tropical kitchen this morning so looking now north to the west coast of America where over the upcoming week temperatures will drop about 10 degrees across the board from today.
This change in the weather pattern for the west coast is due in part by that that rather strong low and associated very cold front I mentioned earlier that is now approaching the British Columbia coast today.
The other factor is the high will be retreating to the east over the Great Basin and low pressure will build creating a gradient between the coast and the Great Basin producing gusterly conditions along the California coast starting tomorrow.
In southern California today the high pressure will slowly weaken and start a cooling trend that will last into the Memorial Day weekend. Strong winds in the mountains and deserts. The fog bank along the southern California coast is already around 1,500 ft thick and will thicken during the week.
Looking now over to the southwest where is has been hot and is getting hotter Tucson with see 106-107 today and tomorrow, Yuma up around 109 for the next two days.
Low humidity and this hot weather caused numerous fires across Arizona for the past week. National Forest spokeswoman Debby Maneely said in a report yesterday, “Probability ignition is 100 percent, which means that any windblown ember will ignite a new fire”.
Temperatures are forecast dip on Wednesday as that low off the British Columbia coast this morning moves into the Great Basin. Meantime they will be frying eggs on their car hoods.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the northern Sea will see moderate northerlies today and then Tuesday and Wednesday brisk southerlies.
The central Sea today will see mostly moderate northerlies today then moderate southerlies on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The southern Sea mostly light northerlies today swinging to the SW tomorrow and Wednesday.
Temperatures today could break 100 in several locations; most will be in the mid to high 90s.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez has been cloud free for another 24 hours.
Looking now over to the west coast of the Baja peninsula I can see that rather dense fog is hugging most of the west coast encroaching inland in many locations. Turtle Bay and Guerro Negro look like they are socked in this morning. Webcams at the cape were showing clear skies though this morning.
Looking now south to the Mexican Riviera where for the second day in a row the coast has been clear of any clouds. That area of very heavy thunderbumper activity has shifted south and is now pretty much west of the Central America’s coast.
Looking at the Tehuantepec this image is showing numerous thumpers working over the Gulf during the night and they continue this morning. Unless you are under one of these honkers the winds in the Gulf are forecast to be moderate over the 3-day forecast period.
Taking a look now at our tropical kitchen: Sister Aletta is now just a remnant low and continues to wander around well off the mainland coast.
The other item is a rather stationary low that has been designated invest 92. It is located in that area of heavy thunderbumper activity south of Acapulco. It’s becoming a bit more organized and the National Hurricane Center is saying conditions there are favorable for gradual development and there is a 30% chance of this developing into a tropical depression over the next 48 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 good size low approaching the coast and getting ready to bring rain to the Great Northwest over the next couple of days.
This system might make it across the California border but northern California is forecast to remain dry all week. Temperatures in the 60s along the coast and 80s inland.
Southern California under high pressure will see dense fog along the coast until late into the morning or early afternoon before clearing. Chilly along the coast this morning with temperatures in the 60s. This afternoon should warm up to almost 80 but later in the week a weak system will pass through dipping the temperatures to the high 60s.
Looking now over to the southwest where it is hot and will get hotter tomorrow and Wednesday. 106-107 in the Tucson area and Yuma 1008-1009. It will also be a bit windy today and that coupled with low humidity over the southwest is increasing the fire danger over the region including the Great Basin, Colorado and west Texas.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence for those of you wanting to move around today and tomorrow should see moderate northerlies, Tuesday moderate southerlies.
Today the northern Sea will see moderate NE winds and along the Sonoran coast strong NW winds
Today the central Sea will see moderate NW winds and the Sonoran coast will see brisk to strong NW winds today and tomorrow.
The southern Sea today and tomorrow light to moderate NW and the Tuesday light to moderate SW winds.
This afternoon around 6:30 the new moon will get in the way of the sun and we should see a partial Solar Eclipse. Remember don’t looks directly at the sun. Looking though a empty Pacific bottle will work though.
It should be interesting!

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that a few whispys passed over the central Sea yesterday afternoon but that was it for any clouds in the Sea.
This morning this image is showing the entire west coast of the Baja peninsula with a heavy fog bank encroaching well inland from the border to the cape. Here in the cove in Concepcion bay there is a thin fog bank moving up the center of the bay this morning and patches of fog all around the hills. I looked out through the fog this morning and saw Dave and Sam’s sailboat Isliea was almost on my porch. It was in about 4 feet of water leaning way over on the keel. There is a high tide at 11:30 this morning, hopefully she can sail off.
Looking now south to the Mexican Riviera where from about Manzanillo south they continue to see scattered bands of clouds pass over. No rain has been reported from any of the reporting stations though.
That are a thunderbumper activity is still off the west coast of the Riviera. Lots and lots of big thumpers working out there.
A couple hundred miles south of Acapulco I can see a rather stationary low that the National Hurricane Center has designated as invest 92 and are giving it about a 40% chance of further development.
Actually that’s not quite right. The Navy is the one who first posts and gives an invest a number. Again an invest is just an area of disturbed weather that has the potential to develop into a tropical or sub-tropical system. After the number the Navy attaches a letter identifying the basin they are located L-Atlantic, E-east Pacific W-Western Pacific etc. Once an invest is declared the National Hurricane Center as well as Met schools and universities start running model data on that particular system.
So endith Invest 101
Sister Aletta now about 800 miles west of the Manzanillo has packed her bags and being very depressed is headed out toward Hawaii.
Looking now at the Gulf of Tehuantepec where numerous thunderbumper have been working over the area for the past 24 hours giving cause to some strong, almost gale force winds being recorded early this morning. Not figuring in the thumpers in the area the winds in the Gulf are forecast to be in the 20-25 knot ranges through tomorrow when they should diminish to the moderate ranges.
Well, that’s what is going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where very pleasant weather continues all along the west coast. Fog hugs most of the west coast from the Oregon/California border south to Cabo Falso this morning. Temperatures along the coast are in the high 60s to low 70s while inland high 70s to the low 80s.
Southern California will be a bit cooler today as a low pressure system moves through the area. Warmer temperatures will return over the weekend under a high pressure ridge,
Looking now over to the southwest where the temperatures will again be in the 100s today for the Tucson area. It will cool down a bit while a low moving out of California moves through this weekend but on Monday they can expect to see 107 in the afternoon.
That’s what’s going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the entire Sea will be seeing moderate winds through the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea of Cortez: Today from the south and the weekend northerlies.
The central Sea will see moderate southerlies today moderate southerlies today and then moderate northerlies for the weekend.
The southern Sea WSW today and NW for the weekend.
Temperatures today will be about like yesterday and be in the mid to high 80s to the low 90s.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez has had another 24 hours of cloudless skies.
Looking south to the Riviera I can see that the area from around Zihuatanejo south to Central America has had passing clouds and from Zihuatanejo south fairly heavy thunderbumper activity along the coast for the past 24 hours as well as this morning.
All this is coming from a broad area of heavy thunderbumper activity about the size of Texas off the mainland coast.
Yesterday morning a developing low a couple hundred miles south of Acapulco showed up and this morning it has been designated invest 92. Environmental conditions are ripe in the area for development, much like Aletta. The National Hurricane Center is saying there is a medium chance (30%) of tropical development over the next 48 hours.
Looking out to the west I can see that sister Aletta had now become depressed and is headed toward Hawaii. I’ll probably see one, perhaps two more advisories on Aletta before she is archived.
Looking out along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough I can see that from Panama out to around 150 there are numerous tall thunderbumper cells but not near as many as off the mainland coast.
Looking now back over to the coast and the Gulf of Tehuantepec I can see a big, I mean a very big building thunderbumper that blankets the Gulf and extends well into Guatemala this morning. The winds in the Gulf are forecast to be ballpark 20K today and tomorrow diminishing a bit on Saturday.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where pleasant weather continues along the west coast. Fog hugs the coast from the Columbia River south to a bit south of Turtle Bay this morning. Inland temperatures are mostly in the 80s inland and in the 60s and 70s along the coast.
Southern California has an approaching low that will arrive this afternoon and tonight that will give cause to cooler conditions today and gusterly winds in the mountains and deserts. When it exits tomorrow high pressure will fill in again with a warming trend into next week.
Looking now over to the southwest where temperatures will remain around 100 today in the Tucson area. The area will cool slightly tomorrow and Saturday as a dry cold front moves out of California into Arizona. This will bring dry conditions and gusterly winds resulting in fire danger across Arizona Early next week the temperatures will creep back to around 105.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like we will be seeing southerly winds for the 3-day forecast period.
Strong in the northern Sea today and diminishing over the next two days to be in the moderate ranges.
The central Sea today the Baja side of the northern crossing will see ballpark 17-19 know winds today diminishing over the next two days back to the moderate ranges. The Sonoran coast will see 17-22 today and tomorrow and then back to the moderate southerlies on Saturday.
The southern Sea moderate SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
Temperature-wise the highs yesterday were down across the board 3-5 degree from the day before. Today they should be about the same as yesterday.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning we have had another 24 hours of cloudless skies in the Sea of Cortez. Using the experimental fog seeing satellite it is showing what look like areas of fog especially around the southern Sea. The web cams at the cape where showing rather heavy fog.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera this morning I can see that along the coast from around Manzanillo they continue to see some scattered clouds passing over the region. No rain has been reported along the coast.
These clouds are coming from an area off the mainland coast about the size of Texas and is centered about 900 miles west of Zihuatanejo. This is a hot spot of activity with dozens of thunderbumpers working in this area. This is the area where our first tropical storm developed two days ago. This morning there is another low a bit south of that area that just showed up this morning and got the attention of the National Hurricane Center giving it a small blurb saying conditions down there appear conductive for possible development. Tiz this season so well keep an eye on it.
Tropical Storm Aletta is slowing heading toward Hawaii. She is heading into an area of dry air and will gradually weaken over the next 48 hours. There is no threat to any land from this storm.
Looking now back to the mainland and the Gulf of Tehuantepec where they have seen a couple of thunderbumpers move through the Gulf during the night. Right now most of the thunderbumper activity is off shore. I’d expect to see more thunderbumpers move through the Gulf today. There are no advisories for the Gulf however the conditions under these storms will very uncomfortable.
That’s what’s going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where very pleasant conditions are forecast for the entire west coast. Coastal fog lays along most of the west coast with temperatures a bit cooler than inland.
Southern California has Grey May conditions along the coast that will burn off later this morning. It will be a bit warmer inland today then a cooling trend for Thursday and Friday followed by a warming trend for the weekend
Looking now over to the southwest where it remains hot. Tucson will be just over 100 today and tomorrow then cool off a bit as a low moves through the Great Basin on Friday. Its then forecast to warm back up this weekend.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the northern Sea will see moderate NE winds today.
The central Sea from around Santa Rosalia south to Puerto Escondido will see strong southerlies today and a bit less for Thursday and Friday.
The southern Sea will see light to moderate southerlies today and swing to SW tomorrow however still be in the moderate ranges.
So it looks like we will be seeing southerly winds for the 3-day forecast period with the strongest today pretty much in the northern crossing.
Temperatures dipped a bit yesterday with no reporting stations reaching 100 degrees. Here in the cove my average May Temperature is 88 degrees. So far this month it has averaged 93.
Today’s temperatures should be in the high 90s.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning it looks like we have had another 24 hours of cloudless skies over the Sea of Cortez.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera I can see that the area from around Manzanillo south to Acapulco continues to see scattered bands of clouds pass over the region. That will continue today.
The genesis of these clouds is that area of very heavy convection that has been off the mainland coast for almost a week.
Yesterday just as I was finishing the weather the National Hurricane Center announced that a tropical depression formed about 700 miles SW of Manzanillo. Around 8:30 last night it became the first named storm of 2012, Aletta. It’s not much of a storm with only 35 knot winds right now and they are forecast to increase to around 45 knots before dissipating late tomorrow and becoming depressed again and head out toward Hawaii.
Following the weather yesterday I went searching for anyone who was posting their forecast for the Eastern Pacific basin hurricane season. Most I’ve found will wait until June. I found only one guy in Texas that goes by the handle of HurricaneDean07. I have no idea what his credentials are but here is his forecast for the Eastern Pacific basin.
“The 2012 Eastern Pacific Hurricane Season should be more active than the two previous. Unlike the Atlantic, the Basin is amped up when El Nino conditions come into play. This season should be about average in most cases, and there shouldn't be anything truly special about it.(The Eastern Pacific seasonal averages are 16-9-4). My numbers for this EPAC season are...15 Named Storms, 9 Hurricanes and 5 Major Hurricanes”
OK that’s it for the first seasonal forecast. Looking now at the Gulf of Tehuantepec where winds continue to whistle through the Chivela pass and through the Gulf of Tehuantepec this morning. They should diminish to less than 20 by this evening.
That’s about it for our hood, just a little early season tropical activity, so looking now north to the west coast of America where it continues to be very pleasant along the west coast with Ballpark 70s along the coast and 80s inland. Coastal fog hugs the coast from San Francisco bay south to just short of Turtle Bay this morning.
For southern California seasonal fair weather will continue all week. A low system on Thursday and Friday will be moving through the area increasing the winds in the mountains and deserts.
Looking now over to the southwest where low humidity and high temperatures will continue all week. Later in the week a low will move through the region dipping temperatures a bit. As high pressure fills in the wake the temperatures will sour again this weekend.
That’s what’s going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like today and tomorrow the northern Sea will see moderate southerlies then pick up on Thursday.
The southern Sea should see moderate E or SE today and tomorrow picking up on Thursday.
The southern Sea will see light to moderate southerlies over the 3-day forecast period.
Temperature-wise many locations will see the century mark today in the central Sea and southern Sea. The Marina de La Paz reported 91 degrees yesterday and the airport 105. I’m inclined to go with the Marina.

.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.

Sea of Cortez Weather for 05/13/12

By: Geary, 1:21 PM GMT on May 13, 2012


Sunday, May 13, 2012

Voice to Text---
.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?

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that we have had another 24 hours of clear skies over the Sea of Cortez.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where off shore for the past several days there has been a large area of very heavy thunderbumper activity that has been sending scattered plumes of clouds toward the coast. That is continuing this morning mostly from around Zihuatanejo south.
The Tehuantepec has 100% cloud cover this morning and has had several thunderbumpers pass over the Gulf during the night. There is a weak trough moving through the bay of Campache on the eastern end of the Tehuantepec isthmus and is expected to force a wind event across the isthmus into the Gulf of Tehuantepec by Sunday morning. They an expect winds of 20-25 knots and building seas to around 10 feet likely through Tuesday.
Looking now out along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough at 106W and 9N there are a couple of embedded lows that the models are showing have some potential for tropical development as it drifts NW during the next 24 hours. It has been IDed as invest 90.
When a low has been designated as an invest at this time the Met schools around the world as well as the National Hurricane Center and various other weather services like Weather Underground begin collecting data from the region and publish this information on the internet. The invest showed up on the Tropical Page of the Sonrisa Net web page early this morning. Of course I’ll be watching for future development of this system.
OK, that looks like it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where high pressure looms large. Summer temperatures are showing up in the west with many locations being forecast to see 100 degrees over the next couple of days.
In northern California: Sacramento high 90s, Redding low 100s. In the Great Northwest Portland will see the mid to high 80s and the
Seattle area mid 70s over the weekend.
Southern California will see coastal fog and temperatures in the mid 70s into the weekend. Inland valleys should see the high 90s.
Looking now over to the southwest where widespread 100 degree readings are expected across the lower deserts this weekend. Above average temperatures will continue well into next week as high pressure remains the predominant weather feature across the desert southwest
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the entire Sea should be much like it has been for the past week.
Tomorrow the honeymoon will be over with the return of brisk to strong winds for the northern and central Sea. Ballpark 20 knots and a bit higher along the Sonoran coast from Puerto Panesco to Guaymas/San Carlos. Not all the models agree with this forecast but I always go with the higher values
My confidence level is higher for the southern Sea from around Puerto Escondido south to the cape where they should continue to see moderate NE or NW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
Temperature-wise the Baja insider is forecasting 107 for the middle of next week for La Paz. Marina de La Paz reported the high yesterday of 85 and the airport reported 95. I’m inclined to go with the airport readings.
The rest of the locations around the Sea saw afternoon temperatures up a few degrees from the day before and most were in the high 80s to low 90s. They should be about the same or a bit higher today.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea has been cloud free for the past 24 hours.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where from about Cabo Corrienties south to Zihuatanejo they have been seeing multi level clouds pass over the region many with dark bottoms.
All this cloudiness is coming from an area of very heavy thunderbumper activity about 800 miles west of Manzanillo that stretches from around 16N to around 8N along the coast. There are too many thunderbumpers working in this area to count. It does not look like this is going to change today.
Looking further south to the Tehuantepec moderate SW winds are forecast to continue today and tomorrow then a trough moving across the western Gulf of Mexico will contribute to a weak Tehuantepec event by Sunday. It’s a little fuzzy right now as to how high the winds will be, but be advised of a change in the conditions in the Gulf on Sunday.
Looking now at the ITCZ/Monsoon trough I can see a couple of embedded lows in the zone this morning. Most likely they will continue to move to the west but with the official opening of the tropical season only 4 days away it’s prudent to start paying attention to these developing systems. I’ll be checking the sonrisa’s website’s Tropical Page to make sure I have the latest storm watching tools in working order.
That’s about it for our hood this morning so looking not north to the west coast of America where the Great Northwest has frost advisories out this morning.
In general the west coast of California is fogged in with the fog reaching inland a ways. The interior valleys will be warm and sunny today and the coast will be slow in clearing.
Southern California has a weak low moving through today causing some gusterly conditions mainly in the deserts. It will be a bit cooler as this front passes then high pressure will rebuild over the weekend and bring warm to hot weather, except near the coast where the marine layer will keep things on the cool side.
Looking now over to the southwest where warm and dry conditions will be present through the weekend. Monday there is a slight chance of some mountain showers as a weak trough moves down the Arizona/New Mexico border. Thereafter high pressure will rebuild with highs in the Tucson area reaching the century mark by the middle of the week.
That’s what is gong on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the northern Sea will see moderate southerlies today. Tomorrow moderate northerlies and Sunday brisk northerlies.
The central Sea much like the northern Sea will see moderate southerlies today. Tomorrow moderate northerlies and Sunday brisk northerlies.
The southern Sea will see very moderate winds over the 3-day forecast period. Today from the south and then NW tomorrow and Sunday.
We have had two weeks of this great weather and it looks like we will have two more days before the winds pick up on Sunday.
Temperatures today will be in the mid to high 80s.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that in the NE corner of the Sea has some heavy cloudiness that look like they could be rain producers. These are part of a low that is moving out of Sonora into New Mexico and Arizona today.
The rest of the Sea looks to be cloud free.
Looking south to along the Mexican Riviera I can see that they have had a few scattered clouds pass over in the past 24 hours but in general mostly clear skies all along the coast until you get to the Gulf of Tehuantepec.
The southern shore of the Gulf of Tehuantepec has a big honk’n thunderbumper working there this morning. It extends well into Guatemala. The forecast for the Gulf continue to be for very moderate southerlies for the 3-day forecast period however it looks like it would be very uncomfortable to be on the water under this strong storm.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific basin along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough I can see that the zone is not quite as active as it has been for the past week. There are still a lot of thunderbumper working along the zone but not quite as many.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where high pressure is bringing sunshine and warm weather to the entire west coast again today.
That being said the coast from the San Francisco bay area south to Mag Bay has a thick blanket of fog hugging the coast keeping the coast a bit cooler than the inland regions.
It does not look like this pattern will change for the west coast for at least a week.
So, looking over to the southwest where a low is moving out of Sonora and will move into New Mexico and Arizona today bringing thunderbumpers to the region later this afternoon and evening. The low will move east into Texas tomorrow with perhaps leave some lingering showers or thunderbumper in the Tucson area.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the northern Sea will continue to have moderate southerlies for the 3-day forecast period.
The central Sea (Santa Rosalia to Puerto Escondido) will continue to see moderate northerlies today. That being said I have been forecasting light to moderate northerlies for Concepción Bay for the past week and every day we have had light to moderate southerlies in the bay. The velosities have been spot on, just the directions a bit off.
The southern Sea moderate will also see moderate northerlies today
Tomorrow and Friday the moderate winds for the central and southern Sea will be east or southeast.
Today’s temperatures will be about like yesterday and be in the high 80s to the low 90s

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that we have had another 24 hours of cloudless skies over the Sea of Cortez.
Looking south to along the Mexican Riviera I can see that from about Manzanillo south they have seen a few scattered clouds drift over the region and that will continue all day.
These are coming from convection along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough. Small plumes break off from the zone and drift toward the mainland.
Again this morning the ITCZ/Monsoon trough is very active. A heavy line of thunderbumpers stretch out from around Guatemala to well out in the Eastern Pacific basin.
I can see a large thunderbumper working on the SW corner of the Tehuantepec this morning. Each morning for the past several days there has been heavy thunderbumper activity along the coast from this point south to blanket the Guatemala and San Salvador coast line.
The Tehuantepec however remains calm with moderate southerlies throughout the 3-day forecast period.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where high pressure over the western conus is bringing warm temperatures and lots of sunshine to the entire west coast.
In southern California a closed low moving out of Southern California into Arizona last night and at around 5am it was over the lower Colorado River Valley. It is traveling pretty much along the international border and looks like it is drifting across the border into Mexico. It is drawing some clouds with it from the west and the Tucson area should start to see these later this morning. Very low humidity readings are over most of Arizona. Humidity readings are in the low teens and into single digits so fire danger is present.
There is still a chance of some high elevation thunderbumpers tomorrow and Thursday before the low exits to the east on Thursday. They could see some dry lightning as this front passed though further enhancing the fire dangers in the southwest.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the northern Sea will see brisk winds to 20 knots today as that low passes to the north. Tomorrow and Thursday the winds will be back in the moderate ranges.
The central Sea should see moderate NE winds over the 3 day period.
The southern Sea will see very moderate WSW today and the next 2 days moderate NW winds.
Temperature-wise: Most locations in the Sea will see a few degrees of cooling today with the temperatures in the high 80s to the low 90s.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning and using first the water vapor imagery I can see there were some whispys passing over the central and southern sea yesterday. This morning this image is showing the sea to be pretty much free of any cloudiness. The IR image is showing the same thing.
NOAA’s experimental fog seeing satellite did not show any fog in the Sea but it did pick up patches of fog between Turtle Bay and Los Angeles this morning.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera I can see that from time to time there has been and will be a few scattered and rather isolated bands of clouds passing over the Riviera.
All this comes from a very active ITCZ/Monsoon trough. From Panama west out to around 140W it is pretty much one solid line to thunderbumpers.
Looking back over to the Gulf of Tehuantepec I can see a nice size squall just off the SW outside corner of the Gulf of Tehuantepec this morning. The Tehuantepec however remains calm with very moderate SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where high pressure has brought warm temperatures and sunny skies to the entire west coast. Even Seattle has sunshine in their forecast.
Looking south to southern California I can see that the California bight is full of fog again this morning. It’s a bit shallower than it has been for the past couple of days and the coastal fog should burn off by mid morning. It will be a bit breezy today especially in the foothills and the passes but in general a delightful day in the southland.
Looking now over to the southwest where it will remain warm and dry today with temperatures in the mid to high 90s.
At the top of this image I can see an upper low developing over Utah. It will slide south during the day today and tomorrow. By tomorrow it will be drawing moisture from across the border into Eastern Arizona bringing a chance of some thunderbumper activity in the higher elevations tomorrow night and Wednesday. It should exit to the east on Thursday. Temperatures are forecast to hit the century mark Friday into the weekend.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the northern sea will see moderate northerlies today.
The central sea (Santa Rosalia to Concepcion Bay will see moderate northerlies today diminishing a bit tomorrow. Puerto Escondido will be seeing moderate east or southeast winds over the 3-day forecast period.
The southern Sea light to moderate winds with a western component over the 3-day forecast period.
That being said the Sea will have in general a northern flow over the next three days.
Temperatures will continue to be in the mid to high 90s today.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that that moisture plume that brought light rain and a few thunderbumpers to the cape area the day before yesterday moved past the cape yesterday morning and moved east into the Sierra Madre Occidental mountains in central Mexico causing thunderbumpers for most of last night. I can see where they moved up into New Mexico early this morning.
For the past 24 hours the sea as well as the Mexican Riviera has been pretty much cloud free.
Looking south to the Tehuantepec where the light southerlies continue today and the forecast is for them to continue for the 3-day forecast period.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific basin and the ITCZ/Monsoon trough which is around 6N this morning I can see that there is still considerable thunderbumper activity along the zone. This morning though no moisture plumes have broken off and headed toward Mexico.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where building high pressure is bringing warming temperatures and sunny skies to the entire west coast today.
Southern California has grey May conditions with the California or Catalina bight filled with fog this morning. This fog bank extends south to around Turtle Bay this morning.
Looking over to the southwest where dry conditions with above normal daytime temperatures will prevail through tomorrow. A low pressure system will drift in from the north today through Wednesday cooling things down a bit and bringing a slight chance of some thunderbumper activity in the higher elevations Wednesday and Thursday. The system should exit to the east on Thursday bringing a return of the warm daytime highs into the weekend. The southwest could also see some cloudiness as this system passes through.
That’s what is going on to the north of us back on this side of the Fence it looks like today will be a carbon copy of yesterday and the day before and the day before.
Here is what the 3-day forecast period looks like: The northern sea will continue to see moderate southerlies today and then be moderate northerlies tomorrow and Tuesday.
The central sea (Santa Rosalia to Concepcion bay) will see moderate southerlies today and then moderate northerlies tomorrow and Tuesday.
The southern sea starting at Puerto Escondido will see light to moderate winds with a southern flavor for the next 3 days.
Temperatures will continue to be in the high 80s to mid 90s today.

Saturday, Cinco de Mayo, 2012

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning can see that band of high whispys passed over the northern and central sea late yesterday. I’d imagine that you would not even notice them, I didn’t. The skies appear to be clear this morning though.
Looking south to the cape I can see that a small plume has broken off the ITCZ/Monsoon trough and has been delivering some cloudiness to the cape area and the southern crossing for the past 24 hours. This morning the IR image is showing the plume thinning but the water vapor imagery is showing more moisture is on the way so it looks like that region will continue to see some cloudiness today.
Further south the Gulf of Tehuantepec continues to have mild southerlies in the 12-14 knot ranges today and the forecast is much the same for the 3-day forecast period.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific basin and along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough I can see there are dozens of thunderbumpers working from around Panama all the way out to around 150W
That’s it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where in the Great Northwest the back side of a system that came ashore yesterday will continue to pull moisture in from the Pacific supporting lingering showers in the Great Northwest this morning.
Elsewhere a ridge of high pressure builds northward from the southwest allowing warm and dry air to return to the west coast.
Northern California warm and dry today.
Southern California will see less of a marine layer today and into the middle of next week. It too will be warm and dry.
Looking now over to the southwest where above normal temperatures will continue through tomorrow as high pressure remains over the region. Temperatures will be in the high 90s over the lower deserts.
Next week will see slightly lower temperatures as a series of weather systems move into the western states bringing a slight chance of some thunderbumper activity in the higher terrain of south central Arizona Tuesday and Wednesday. We’ll see?
That’s what is going on to the north of us, back on this side of the Fence the northern sea will continue to see moderate southerlies for the next 3 days. The central sea to Concepcion Bay will see moderate northerlies Puerto Escondido south to La Paz moderate southerlies and the East Cape moderate to light NW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
So it looks like the LoretoFest will be enjoying great spring weather again this year.
Temperatures continued to climb a few degrees yesterday and today will see temperatures in the high 80s to the mid 90s.
If last night’s preview of the full moon in any indication of tonight’s Super Moon it should be quite a show. You always here me say, “Don’t forget to howl” when we have a full moon. Well, don’t forget to howl tonight! It sort of brings out the kid in you. Dig deep and give out a primeval howl. I’ve found that some folks even giggle a little after a good howl. Give it a try.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the sea has been pretty much free of any cloudiness for the past 24 hours
Looking south to the cape area I can see that a plume has broken off the ITCZ/Monsoon trough and is bringing a long narrow band of clouds toward the cape, taking dead aim on the southern crossing. This image is showing the East Cape seeing some cloudiness and it looks like Mazatlan will see some later this morning.
That’s it for the sky conditions in our area.
Looking south to the ITCZ/Monsoon trough I can see two embedded lows along the zone this morning and very active thunderbumpers working all along the zone out to around 145W this morning.
Looking back at the Tehuantepec where very moderate southerlies continue in the Gulf keeping the crossing window open.
That 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 weak low moving into the Great Northwest this morning. It’s forecast to move quickly to the east bringing rain and snow with it as it moves into the Rockies this evening.
Northern California is clear and dry this morning and should stay that way well into next week.
Southern California will see night and morning clouds become less extensive with gradual warming through the weekend. Temperatures will be close to seasonal averages.
Looking now over to the southwest where above normal temperatures will continue today through Sunday as a high pressure system remains over the region. Temperatures are forecast to be in the mid to upper 90s over the lower deserts
Slightly cooler temperatures will develop early next week as a series of pacific weather systems move into the western states. A slight chance of high-based thunderbumper s will develop over the higher terrain of south-central Arizona Tuesday and Wednesday.
Well, that’s what is going on to the north of us, back on this side of the fence it looks like the LoretoFest will have very pleasant weather for the weekend. Today light NE and Saturday and Sunday moderate SE.
Here is what the rest of the sea will be like. The northern sea moderate southerlies for the 3-day forecast period. The Central Sea moderate east or northeast for the 3-day forecast period. The southern sea today light northeast and tomorrow and Sunday light to moderate southwest breezes.
And a little reminder that Tomorrow’s full moon will be a "super Moon,” it will be as much as 14% bigger and 30% brighter than other full Moons of 2012. That should be an extra treat for the folks at the LoretoFest. For the rest of us it’s just another excuse to have a howl at the moon party. And don’t forget to howl. It’s good for the soul.

Voice to Text---
.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the very active ITCZ/Monsoon trough has been sending broken bands of clouds toward the Baja peninsula for the past 24 hours.
It also looks like those cirrus that have are off the Baja west coast were passing over much of the peninsula from time to time yesterday causing hazy conditions late in the afternoon in the central sea.
Down around the cape one website reported morning fog however most of the time the images that I’m using are unable to see very thin whispys and fog unless it is very thick.
Speaking of which the outside of the Baja peninsula from around Turtle Bay north is still fog bound. This morning this image is showing it extending inland quite a ways.
Looking now south to the Mexican Riviera where the coast is pretty much clear south to Central America this morning.
I have already mentioned the Tehuantepec being rather active. There is an almost solid line of heavy thunderbumper activity from Panama all the way out to 150W this morning.
That’s what’s going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where there are two more systems off the Washington coast that will be bringing rain to the Great Northwest today and tomorrow then under high pressure they could actually be seeing sunshine Friday into the weekend.
Northern California has a weak fast moving system moving through this morning bringing rain from the border to the bay area and Sacramento and foothills today it will exit to east tonight. High pressure will fill in and northern California will dry out and be warmer into the weekend.
Southern California under May Grey will be seeing fog and coastal fog inland to the mountains today retreating this afternoon with a chance of the beaches seeing sunshine later in the afternoon. It will be breezy in the mountains and deserts through tomorrow. The May Grey will continue into next week.
Looking now over to the southwest where a slow warming trend will occur today and tomorrow as high pressure strengthens a bit over the western conus. They can expect to see above normal high Temperatures in the mid to upper 90s into the weekend.
The lower deserts will continue to be breezy today.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it’s one of those “if you liked yesterday, you’ll like today” days. Very moderate winds for the entire sea. The northern sea will continue to see moderate southerlies into the weekend. The central sea moderate northerlies picking up a tad on Saturday. The southern sea light to moderate winds with a western component.
Temps in most locations inched up a degree or two yesterday and today should be about like yesterday in the high 80s to the low 90s for most locations.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the sea has been pretty much free of any clouds in the past 24 hours. The extreme cape has had had a few whispys passing over though. It looks like that will continue today as well.
Looking now south to the Mexican Riviera where the coast is clear all the way south to Central America where there is considerable thunderbumper activity both inland and off shore.
Looking out at the ITCZ/Monsoon trough along about 8N this morning I can see a low embedded in the zone. In a couple of months we will be watching these lows for tropical development but right now they are just rain producers along the zone.
Looking back to Mexico I can see that the Tehuantepec will continue to have moderate SW winds over the 3-day forecast period. So the crossing window is still open.
Looking now over to the west coast of the Baja peninsula where fog lays along the coast from about Mag Bay north to central California. This image is showing the fog extending inland over most of the peninsula this morning. Checking the webcams at La Paz and the east cape and they were showing a few clouds in the area but no fog.
That’s about it for our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where the Great Northwest will see a day of partial sunshine today before the next system comes in tomorrow and will be bringing more rain and high elevation snow to the Great Northwest.
This system was forecast to just barely brush northern California however right now it looks like the system will be bringing rain to the Bay Area and Sacramento Thursday. It will exit to the east by Thursday night.
Southern California is in May Grey mode. Rather thick fog is extending inland to the coastal mountains this morning and will be slow to retreat to the coast. Afternoon sun is rather iffy today.
Looking now over to the southwest where Temperatures will continue to be in the mid 90s all week. Right now it does not look like the southwest will see those 100 degree Temperatures that were originally forecast for next weekend. Mid 90s it looks like now. Lots of sunshine in store for the southwest this week however breezy to locally windy conditions will occur east of Tucson this afternoon.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence we can expect another day pretty much like yesterday.
The northern sea to around San Franciscito bay will have moderate southerlies over the 3-day forecast period.
Santa Rosalia north to Puerto Escondido moderate NE winds. Puerto Escondido will probably see light SE winds this afternoon. Taking a long range looks for the weekend’s festivities at Puerto Escondido right now it look like brisk southerlies on tap right now. We’ll see?
The southern sea will see light to moderate winds with a western component over the next 3 days.
Temperatures will be up another couple of degrees today and most of the sea will be in the mid to high 80s.

.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the sea has been pretty much clear of any clouds for the past 24 hours. The extreme cape area has seen some passing high whispys and that’s it for the sea.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera where there is not much left of that moisture plume that has been there for the past week. It looks like from Mazatlan south to around Manzanillo they will see some passing high whispys today. Not many as what is left of the plume is quite broken and the clouds are scattered.
Looking over along the west coast of the Baja peninsula I can see a rather heavy fog bank from around Mag Bay north to central California. The fog appears cover most of the peninsula however the web cams are showing all locations in the sea to be clear this morning.
Looking further south to the Tehuantepec where it looks like a crossing window is open right now. Very moderate winds are forecast for the Gulf for the 3-day forecast period.
Looking out into the Eastern Pacific basin along the ITCZ/Monsoon trough I can see that the heaviest thunderbumper activity is west of Central America this morning. I can see about a dozen tall thunderbumpers working mostly off shore between El Salvador and South America this morning.
Well, that’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image I can see the storms lined up that will keep the Great Northwest wet all week.
Northern California will see a little rain this Thursday and Friday as a storm moving through Washington and Oregon just brushes northern California. Not too much rain is expected and it will most likely won’t make it as far as the upper Sacramento valley.
Southern California continues to have May Grey. Heavy coastal fog hugs the entire southern California coast inching inland a ways this morning. The beaches may not clear until late afternoon today.
Looking over to the southwest where this image is showing clear skies. They are forecast to have dry conditions with seasonable warm Temperatures all week with a threat of temps reaching the century mark next weekend. A weak system moving through the Great Basin will give cause to breezy to locally windy conditions today and tomorrow in the afternoons.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the northern sea will be seeing southern winds for the next couple of days. Today the winds will be brisk in the low 20s diminishing over the next couple of days to the low to mid teens.
The central sea for the 3-day forecast period will be seeing moderate winds with a southern component.
The southern sea light winds with a western flavor.
Temperature wise it will be about like yesterday and be in the mid to high 80s today.
