Weather Forecast for the Baja California Peninsula

 

Baja Weather Synopsis

 

Monday, August 3, 2015 9:10AM MDT MDT Marine layer has pushed a few miles inland from the border south to San Ignacio this morning but should retreat before noon. Temps in that region will be the coolest on the peninsula. The inland deserts will be scorching and down south the humidity will continue with the increasing chance of afternoon thunderstorms on the eastern side of the peninsula as you move south. Down south we have a single area of possible development, given a low chance it is already too far south and west to be of concern to the peninsula

 

In Baja California, in Ensenada is reporting partly cloudy skies and temperatures through the week will only rise to the mid 70's In Mexicali will be hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk with temps expected to remain over 111°F through late in the week. San Felipe will have plenty of sun through the week and temperatures in the mid 90's

 

In Baja California Sur, in San Ignacio will be sunny through the week, with temps in the low to mid 90's with a cooling Pacific breeze. Loreto is forecast to have partly cloudy through the week with temps in the mid to upper 90's and a shot at thunderstorms Wednesday.
