Baja Weather Synopsis
Monday, May 25, 2015 8:56 AM MDT Marine layer is invading the Pacific coast from Ensenada to San Quintin and again in the Comondu coastal areas,but this will burn off as the morning progresses. Sun will prevail and temperatures will warm up closer to normal through the week. Just as a note, La Paz usually has its first 100°F in late April, this year we have yet to reach that mark. We have a little activity way down south in the ITCZ, but it will be months yet before Baja has a direct threat from tropical weather.
In Baja California, a dense marine layer has moved inland, nearly half the peninsula deep along the Pacific coast and it will keep things damp and cool until it burns off, likely before noon. It will remain cool through the week with temperatures in Ensenada not breaking 70° until Thursday and then only slightly. In Mexicali they will not benefit from the cooling marine layer and temps will rise to the low 90's today and crest 100°F Thursday or Friday. In San Felipe on the beautiful Sea of Cortez they will see sun through the forecast period and temps climbing from the low 80';s today to the low 90's by the end of the week.
In Baja California Sur, In Guerrero Negro it will remain unseasonably cool with temps in the low 70's today, looking for the mid 80's by the end of the week. In Loreto look for sun through the forecast period with temps in the low to mid 80's today and warming to the upper 80's by the end of the week. In La Paz it is sunny this morning and warming up quickly as we are expecting a high near 90°F today, a little cooler tomorrow then mid 90's will become the norm through the week. In the tourist destination of Los Cabos it will be sunny through the week ahead with temps in the upper 80's through the period.
On our Tropical Watch there is an area with allow probability of development moving almost into the Central Pacific region that poses not threat to Mexico. Closer in we have the first tropical wave of the year entering the Pacific (yellow arrow) but 1012Mb high pressure(white arrow) is keeping things from developing further north than 10°N so development remains limited. This system, regardless of development should move harmlessly off into the Pacific.
