Sunday 23 June 2018 Oh boy, it looks like Baja California Sur may be headed into the humid season early, like the early beginning we've had to our tropical cyclone season. Here in La Paz we had a blow off the desert and it felt like our afternoon thunderstorm was brewing. We escaped any showers here in downtown, but there were places from Cabo San Lucas to La Paz in the mountaints that received some precipitation. This is about 3 weeks ahead of normal. The humidity really surges about mid August as we move into our traditional Hurricane Season. 

When exploring the deserts and mountains of Baja Sur remain aware of weather conditions 'up hill' from your adventures. Heavy rains miles away in the mountains can occasionally trigger flash flooding well downstream.

Tropical Watch: There are two areas of interest to our south. The more easterly one is about 300 miles southwest of Acapulco with a low chance of development in the next 24hrs and only a moderate chance of development over the next 5 days as it moves west. The second area is about 800 miles south-southwest of Cabo San Lucas. It has a high probability of development in the next 24hrs and 5 days as it initially moves to the north.  The initial forecast track may put the Chicken Little's of storm gosips in a whirl, but strong mid and upper level winds are going to push this system to the west-northwest, about the time it is 250 miles west of Socorro Islands. There is one model that shows a path in the direction of Baja Sur, but note that it puts the system over sub 26°C waters for 3-4 days. So, even if that model path were to hold it would likely be tracking a cloudy day. 

Enjoy your day.
