Baja Weather Synopsis
Thursday, April 24, 2014 9:33 AM
MST Wow, we had some strong Coromuel Winds, peaking early this morning in the Bay of La Paz. Our weather station at the end of the CostaBaja breakwater clocked a high wind speed of 30.4 kts just before 8AM this morning. A little cloud cover today and lower temps will probably yield less winds this evening.
In Baja California, that cold front is going to continue to plague the Pacific coastal areas through early next week. Temps will remain in the low 60's and plunge back into the upper 50's that the chance of showers on Monday. Inland in Mexicali look for sunny and 90°F today with cooler temps Friday with clouds and winds and on Saturday more of the same but temps will only climb to about 80°F. Along the Sea of Cortez San Felipe will hover right around the 80°F mark today and tomorrow but the weekend may be breezy and cooler, right around 70° F with winds from the NNW.
In Baja California Sur, Santa Rosalia will have sunny skies and temps in the low to mid 80's trailing downward through the weekend to the mid 70's on Sunday as the cold front reaches that far south. In Loreto today look for sunny skies and mid 80's except for Sunday when the cold front will depress temps into the upper 70's. In La Paz it is overcast this morning and temps will be in the low 90's late this afternoon. We can expect moderate Coromuel Winds this evening. `Look for winds in the southern Sea to blow from the SSE to 12kts this afternoon. Late in the weekend the southern Sea will get a moderate blow from the NNW as the front passes, maybe to 12-15kts. Enjoy your day.
