Baja Weather Synopsis

Share with:

Tuesday, September 30, 2014 8:13 AM MDT Another virtually cloudless morning across the peninsula, with temperatures forecast to climb a few more degrees from the Pacific coast to the tip of Baja Sur. Down south we have an area of interest developing and Tropical Storm Rachel is slowly fading away about 485 miles west of Baja California Sur.

In Baja California Ensenada is expecting sunny skies and 77° Inland, in Mexicali, expect 95° in the afternoon, but it will warm back up again slowly to the weekend as temps creep back toward 100°F. Along the Sea of Cortez, San Felipe has ten sunny days ahead with temps today around 91°F that will rise through the week, peaking at the weekend in the upper 90's..

In Baja California Sur, In Mulege they will see sun and temps climbing to the upper 80's today and warming a little more by week's end, then thunderstorms become more likely late in the weekend. Loreto will also be sunny and just a couple of degrees warmer than Mulege. In La Paz, we are looking for sun and mid 90's through the week with very high humidity. Rain and thunderstorms are in the forecast for the tip of the peninsula by the weekend. In Los Cabos, expect 91° and sunny through the week, with rain expected as early as Friday. Throughout Baja California Sur take care when working outside.

On our Tropical Watch Tropical Storm Rachel more than 485 miles west of Todos Santos and is the system that won't say die , it is expected to fade away in the next 72hrs to a tropical depression. Way down south yet is an area of development that is moving northwest along the southern coast of Mexico and is given a moderate chance of development in the next 48hrs, but a high chance of development in the next 5 days. This is likely the system that they are forecasting to bring us rain in Baja Sur over the weekend but early projections look like it will pass well south of the peninsula. Since this IS the Baja hurricane season we will continue to keep you posted on this developing Low.

Just around the corner is some of the finest weather Baja has to offer. Right around the middle of October the humidity breaks and the temps fall into the mid-80's in Baja California Sur. The Sea of Cortez remains spectacularly warm and it is one of our favorite times all along the Sea of Cortez. In Baja California the temps also fall , but an off-shore flow develops in the deserts of Southern California and the Pacific coast of the northern state also becomes delicious. I use the word delicious as it is also a great time to visit the wine country of the Guadelupe Valley. Enjoy your day...
