Baja Weather Synopsis
Thursday, April 23, 2015 8:47 AM MST Clouds across the southern portions of the peninsula and a marine layer that is encroaching nearly half way across the peninsula in the north, so much of Baja will start the day without sun, so temperatures across the peninsula will remain slightly below normal
In Baja California, Ensenada will remain cool, in the mid 60's with overcast from the marine layer. Some places along the Pacific coast may find that marine layer so dense as to have a little of it fall from the skies early in the day, but it will be next week before the Pacific coastal areas can look for a sunny day. In Mexicali it will be sunny with the exception of a partly cloudy Saturday with temps in the low to mid 80's through Monday when it will warm into the 90's again. In San Felipe on the Sea of Cortez look for some prestigious weather with nothing but sun and temps slowly climbing from the upper 70's today and tomorrow into the low 90's by Wednesday.
In Baja California Sur, San Ignacio on the Pacific side will see partly cloudy Thursday and Friday with sun Saturday and clouds again on Sunday with temps expected to climb toward the 70 degree mark through Monday when temps will move into the 80's. In Loreto it will be partly cloudy Thursday, giving way to sun the rest of the forecast period. Temps will migrate from the low 80's to the upper 80's by the end of the forecast period. In La Paz it is overcast this morning and we well may remain that way through much of the day as tropical moisture moving to the northeast will blanket the tip of the peninsula through the weekend with sun for both days. On Monday the clouds will return as this band of moisture will migrate laterally across the peninsula, pushed by a strengthening High in the Central Pacific. In the tourist destination of Los Cabos look for Friday, Saturday and Wednesday for sunshine the rest will be partly to mostly cloudy as a result of this spring moisture migration. Temperatures will be in the low to mid 80's through the forecast period.
Winds in the Sea will remain benign and from a variety of directions throughout. La Paz may see some strong Coromuel's in the week ahead. Enjoy your day...
