Saturday 21 January 2017 We'll be doing a little Baja winter in the next week, with some low overnight temperatures and rain to look forward to in the northern state. In the southern state, there will be some windy days ahead and winter will arrive here a week later, with one more REALLY nice early winter day coming on Monday in the lower portions of Baja Sur. Low pressure over Utah with a trailing a cold front back to the California-Baja California border region is being pushed southeast down the peninsula by a 1018Mb High about 800 miles west of the Cedros Islands which is going to slide due east and push colder air and winds down the peninsula. 

There is more Pacific moisture rushing in toward California that will spill southward early in the week bringing more rain to the Pacific coast. Pacific coastal areas will see partly cloudy today and a temps around the 60°F/15°C and a little warmer tomorrow. Winds will blow with the rain and temp around 60°F/15°C Monday reaching 22kts from the west. 

The high deserts will have a windy and partly cloudy day with temperatures in the mid 60's/17°C with a stiff breeze from the west to 22kts. Winds will pick up again mid-day Monday and could crest 25kts from the west. Wednesday and Thursday are going to hit some fresh overnight lows, around 40°F/4°C. 

Along the northern Sea of Cortez look for some of the best weather the northern Baja state has to offer this week with sunny days with the temps in the mid and upper 60's/18°C today and tomorrow and just a chance of rain on Monday. Tuesday and Wednesday will clear and the temps will be in the low to mid 60's/16°C. Winds will sting for a little while today to 18kts from the west. Then it will calm through Thursday when winds will ramp up to 15kts and reach 22kts from the NNW over the weekend and into the first of the week before tapering off. 

Along the central Pacific coast look for partly cloudy today, 61°F/16°C but not the best day for whale watching with winds honking from the west to 22kts. Tomorrow will be calm in the AM with winds ramping up to 12kts in the afternoon. Monday they will blow again to 22kts from the WSW with temps in the low 60's and partly cloudy skies. In the central Sea of Cortez region look for rain today and temperatures in the upper 60's/19°C. Clearing tomorrow and partly cloudy again on Monday. Winds are going to blow Monday from the WNW to 22kts and continue into early Wednesday before giving up the ghost. A long stretch of sunshine will begin on Tuesday with temps rising from 69°/20°C to 76°F/24°C on Friday.

Along the southern coast of the Sea look for mostly sunny and mid 70's/23°C with partly cloudy moving in tomorrow. Monday will be sunny and 82°F/28°C with winds picking up on Sunday from the WNW to 14kts. Winds will bump up every afternoon thereafter, increasing to close to 20kts Thursday through the weekend, tapering off the first of the week. In Los Cabos, there will be one last hurrah for summer with sunny skies through Tuesday. Temperatures will rise from 71°/22°C today to a toasty 90°F/32°C on Monday before returning to the mid 70°F/24°C into the new week.

The Crossing. With the High moving close to the Pacific shore of Baja California it will drive winds south toward a low off the southern coast of Mexico increasing through the day today as the High draws closer. Winds will therefore mostly affect the central Sea south, being just about the worst in the usual crossing areas Sunday through late Monday. There will only be a slight and brief respite from the winds which will build again late in the work week. Enjoy your day.
