Baja Weather Synopsis
Wednesday, February 25, 2015 9:03 AM MST The forecast has been revised over the last 24hrs and the weekend will bring a string of days with a threat of rain to the Pacific border areas. Today the winds will blow in the Sea from the NNW to north, but will begin to settle down late this afternoon and into tomorrow. In Baja Sur it will be a cool day with the north winds in the Sea, but it will warm back up quickly tomorrow. Cloudy skies in the north are a result of Pacific moisture moving north from Hawaii then due east across the border areas, but only scattered clouds are expected, no precipitation until the weekend.
In Baja California, The Pacific coastal areas are in for a couple more nice days before the skies cloud up on Friday and the threat of rain ensues from the weekend into the first of the week. Today's mostly sun will bring temps in the mid 60's, with cooling to around 60°F on Friday and into the weekend. In Mexicali look for sun through Friday with temps around 80°F. Then the cold front will pass through and drop temps 10°F or more into the first of next week. But no precipitation is expected inland although it may come close. Along the Sea of Cortez in San Felipe today will be partly cloudy and temps will only rise into the mid 70's. Thursday through Saturday will be sunny, the next two days in the mid 70's then a cooling trend and things will be a little brisk in the low 609's with a threat of rain on Sunday. Things will slowly warm back up into next week.
In Baja California Sur, in Guerrero Negro it will be mostly sunny today temps will be in the low 70's or just under the mark tomorrow. Things will really cool on Friday into the low 60's and there is a chance that the rain pushing down from the north will make it this far south on Saturday and Sunday with temps only around 60°F. In Loreto look for the sun through Saturday with temps right around 80°F and a bit of a blow from the north today with winds to 22kts. Winds will taper off tomorrow. Sunday and Monday will be a little cooler as the cold front makes itself felt this far south early next week. In La Paz it is crystal blue and breezy this morning. We have already had winds peak of 15kts at the CostaBaja weather station, which is somewhat protected by Punta Prieta at the entrance to the ensenada de La Paz. Look for winds to peak around noon short of 25kts. The forecast for Los Cabos is very easy... for the next 7 days look for temps right around 80°F sun through Sunday when a few scattered clouds will hang out until the mid week ahead. Enjoy the day...
