Baja Weather Synopsis

Share with:

Tuesday, May 5, 2015 10:09 AM MST There is a dense marine layer intruding 30 miles or more along the Pacific coast of Baja California and bands of clouds moving across the southern portions of the peninsula. No precipitation is expected. Temperatures will remain a little below normal for this time of year, but a welcome relief in many places in the south where Spring started out particularly warm. A storm near New Zealand is throwing waves clear across the Pacific and in combination with the lunar high tide has caused inundations in some places along the southern coast of Mexico. Along the southern facing beaches like Los Cabos, sand toys are being moved further up the beach. `The effects will be felt even as far north as Moro Bay.

In Baja California, Ensenada can look forward to a string of gray days and temperatures only rising into the low to mid 60's as this marine layer will stick around through Thursday. Inland in Mexicali look for sunny Tuesday with increasing clouds and a high just over 90°F. Wednesday will be partly cloudy and temperatures will descend through the week to the upper 70's on Friday, before warming again to over 90°F by the weekend. Along the Sea of Cortez in San Felipe look for nothing but sunshine and temperatures descending from a high Tuesday of 80°F to a high on Friday in the low 70's, then warming again into the weekend.

In Baja California Sur, Guerrero Negro look for sunshine today, clouding up a little tomorrow and temperatures through Saturday around 70°F or a little warmer. On Sunday temps will take about a 10°F jump to the positive into next week. In Santa Rosalia, look for a good long stretch of sunshine and temperatures in the low 80's, creeping to the upper 80's by the first of the week. In Loreto will be enjoying sunshine through at least Saturday and temps in the low 80's. In La Paz it is clear this morning with a high today expected to reach the upper 80's. In the tourist destination of Cabo San Lucas look for alternating days of sun and partly cloudy with temperatures pretty stable, in the low to mid 80's.

Today is Cinco de Mayo, probably a far greater holiday in southern California and at Mexican restaurants stateside wide than it is here in Baja. Although never ones to let a holiday go un toasted, the folks of Baja, particularly the bars and restaurants, are finding it good business to assume the holiday as well.
