Insider Survey Saturday, December 20, 2014 10:38 AM MST Winds will develop today in the Sea of Cortez and blow through late Saturday from the north to 25kts. Temps will fall across the peninsula a few degrees and warm again as we head into the Christmas week. Winds on the Pacific side will also blow from the northwest as far south as Magdalena Bay to 30kts. There is a cold front sweeping across the Pacific coast of North America and will bring some cloudy skies over the weekend, but no precipitation is expected to cross the border.

In Baja California, Ensenada will be brisk and cloudy today, with temps just rising to the mid 60's, but it will warm into the mid 70's as we near the holiday. In Mexicali look for mostly clear skies and temps in the upper 60's today warming to the upper 70's by Monday. Along the Sea of Cortez, look for clear skies through the period with temps working around 70°F in San Felipe.

In Baja California Sur, Guerrero Negro will enjoy sunny skies but cool temps in the upper 60's but warm to around 70°F by the holiday. In Loreto look for sunny skies and temperatures in the mid 70's. In La Paz it is clear and cool this morning and we are expecting temps to reach close to 80°F this afternoon. In Los Cabos look for plenty of sun and temps hovering right around the 80°F mark through the Christmas week.

Sunday is the Winter Solstice in the northern Hemisphere. At 4:03PM MST in Baja Sur and 3:03PM PST the tilt of the earth in relation to the sun will reach its zenith. By the first of the year days will begin to get perceptibly longer.
