Friday, September 19, 2014 12:38 PM MDT Tropical Storm Polo remains the top weather story for Baja, now stationary some 285 miles south-southeast of Cabo San Lucas. A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for the tip of the peninsula and it may be raised to a Tropical Storm Warning later today. This system is not currently forecast to be as powerful as Odile, not by a long shot. But the areas affected by Odile earlier in the week will be more susceptible to flash flooding with more rain. Current forecasts call for Polo to begin a long road to dissipation over the next 48hrs and have winds reduced to 50kts by this afternoon. The current storm track puts Polo

In Baja California the story will be quite different, Ensenada is expecting sunny skies and temps in the upper 70's. Inland in Mexicali, it will sunny through the next 10 days with temps right around 100°F today warming slowly to 107° on Wednesday and then a cooling trend. Along the Sea of Cortez, San Felipe will have crystal blue skies and temps in the low 90's today warming to the mid 90's on Wednesday.

In Baja California Sur, Mulege is in for sun and temps in the upper 80's. Loreto will have sun and 90°F today but look for some thunderstorms possible on Sunday. In La Paz we are under a Tropical Storm Watch but the forecast calls for partly cloudy skies and temps near 92°F. In Los Cabos, they too are under a Tropical Storm Watch and there will be a decent chance of some showers late in the day with temps in the mid 80's and the threat of thunderstorms through the week.

We have several pages of photos from the Baja California Sur region hardest hit by Odile all listed in the New Stories column left. Write us at odile@bajainsider.com with your stories and photos of Odile in your region of Baja.
