.Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea still has some bands of scattered fluffys here and there throughout the Sea that are left over from storms originating over Sonora last night.
This loop is showing that none of the big storms encroached into the Sea but all moved north. There was considerable thunderbumper activity over Sonora yesterday afternoon with several MCS’s, (Here is that term again, MCS, mesoscale convective systems) where these storms all link together to form one lone linier thunderbumper that was around 1000 miles long.
That being said with all the moisture in the air I’d be surprised if there were not some small isolated thumpers that built up over the Sea last night that are not showing up in this image.
This morning this image is showing that most of the thunderbumper activity in Sonora has dissipated and the only line of thumpers I can see are stretched out over the Sierra Madre Occidentals Mountains.
Back here on the Baja coast yesterday afternoon there were several locations in the coastal mountains that showed some cloudiness but no tall clouds indicating thunderbumpers.
Looking now south to the southern Sea I can see that the southern Sea cleared by mid morning and has been pretty much free of any cloudiness since then.
Looking now over to the Mexican Riviera where south of Mazatlan there has been a lot of thumpers working there way toward the coast with most dissipating as they reached the coast. This morning there is a lot of remnant clouds south along the coast to around Zihuatanejo.
The Tehuantepec isthmus has a few small storms over it however the Gulf is clear this morning. There is a small wind event there this morning with gusts to around 30 knots due to 1019 high pressure over the Caribbean. It will be short lived and the winds will be back in the moderate ranges by this afternoon.
Taking a look in our Tropical Kitchen this morning I can see a low embedded in the ITCZ/Monsoon trough this morning. It has not been designated for observation and the environment is not particularly favorable for any tropical development.
Looking out in the Caribbean I can see another tropical wave headed our way and it should pass through Central America Sunday night. The global models are sort of “iffy” about this wave so we’ll put it on the back burner for now.
That’s what is going on in our hood so looking now north to the west coast of America where the Great Northwest will continue to see off and on light rain throughout the weekend.
Northern California will be hot and dry.
Southern California will continue to see coastal fog this morning and warm weather will continue into the weekend. They could see some isolated thunderbumper activity in the mountains and deserts from monsoonal moisture moving in from the SW this weekend.
Next week there will be a slow cooling trend for the southland.
Looking now over to the southwest where the monsoon is very active and they will be seeing an increase in thunderbumper during the weekend. Next week the monsoon will quiet down and they will see less thunderbumper activity in Arizona.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like our moderate southerlies will continue throughout the weekend and Monday. The far northern Sea could see some 20+ knot winds over the weekend but the rest in the moderate ranges.
The southern Sea light to moderate southerlies over the 3-day forecast period.
Yesterday’s highs were mostly in the high 80s to the mid 90s and I’d expect them to be about the same today.
One of the bloggers in La Paz posted that next week the honeymoon is over for that area with 100 degree temperatures are on tap for the region. We’ll see?
