Baja Weather Synopsis

Share with:

Friday, October 31, 2014 12:53 PM MST As we begin to move into our winter seasonal weather flow the northern portions of the peninsula will be affected from the north and the southern portions of Baja need to continue to look to the south as a late season tropical cyclone moves in our general direction, Tropical Storm Vance

In Baja California, The Pacific coastal areas of Baja California will enjoy one more luscious day with sunny to mostly sunny skies and temps in the low 70's. Tomorrow look for rain as a Pacific storm works its way southeast along the west coast of the US. Inland in Mexicali it will be clear today and temps will climb to the upper 80's, tomorrow will be cloudy and as much as 10°F cooler. Along the Sea of Cortez, San Felipe will be about as far south as this system makes it over the weekend with low 80's today and low 70's Monday and Tuesday with sunny or mostly sunny skies through the period.

In Baja California Sur, Loreto will be partly sunny with temps in the upper 80's today, tapering off to the low 80's next week. In La Paz we have sunny skies and temps expected to climb to the low 90's today, a little warmer over the weekend and then clouding skies with the threat of rain from Tropical Cyclone Vance on Tuesday. In Los Cabos look for mostly sunny today with temperatures reaching 93°F. The forecasts are calling for a pretty good chance of some influence from Vance on Monday and Tuesday with possible thunderstorms Monday and a good chance of rain Tuesday.

On our Tropical Watch we have Tropical Storm Vance, a late season tropical cyclone expected to make it to Hurricane status over the weekend and turn back to the northeast. Forecasts call for the system to pass well south of Baja from Sunday through Tuesday and make landfall on the mainland coast as a tropical depression. The air mass over Baja has dried significantly since our Hurricane Season, but the warm waters surrounding the peninsula could still support a landfall. Although you never say never with Mother Nature a direct impact on the peninsula remains unlikely. The seasonally latest named system to make landfall on Baja did so on the 17th of October of 2012.
