Loreto is in for some weather to be envied, with clear skies and temps in the low to mid 80's working slowly toward the upper 80's by mid week. In La Paz we are already moving into summer like weather with clear skies and temps in the low 90's through early next week when we will begin to march up into the mid and upper 90's again. In Los Cabos look for sunny skies and temperatures moderated by the Pacific breeze and temps will range from the mid 70's in Cabo San Lucas to upper 80's in San Jose del Cabo. Enjoy your day.
