Baja Weather Synopsis
Monday, July 6, 2015 11:11 AM MDT June Gloom will continue into July along the Pacific coastal areas of Baja California, but provide the coolest temps along the coast as well. Inland it will be toasty with clear skies across the peninsula. Afternoon thunderheads are moving west across the Sea and with a few scattered showers over the weekend across the peninsula, it will be just a week or so more before we start seeing afternoon thunderstorms pop up across any places on the eastern side. Down south nothing is brewing that is of threat to the peninsula.
In Baja California, Ensenada is reporting mostly sunny skies this morning with the marine layer pushing back today with temps in the week ahead with mid 70's. In Mexicali it will be smokin' hot today at 106°F the forecast high. Along the Sea of Cortez San Felipe will warm to the low 90's through the week ahead with nothing but sunshine.
In Baja California Sur, In Guerrero Negro is going to see sun through the week and temps in the low 80's through the forecast period. Loreto will be sunny or mostly through the forecast period with temps in the mid 90's today, upper 90's Tuesday and Wednesday and cooling alter in the week a few degrees. In La Paz they will be having sunny skies and temps broaching 100°F for the next couple of days before entering a slight cooling trend.
On our Tropical Watch, There is one area of potential development with a good chance of becoming a tropical cyclone in the next 5 days, but it is way too far west to be of concern to Baja. There is an additional tropical wave entering the Pacific basin, but only a limited amount of convection along the Pan-American coast to support development which is not considered likely at this time.
