Baja Weather Synopsis

Share with:

Friday, August 22, 2014 9:53 AM MD There are three tropical cyclones active in the Eastern Pacific right now, but only one of them is anywhere near a threat to Baja. Karina and Lowell are well to our west, but new Tropical Storm Maria is about 830 miles south east of Cabo San Lucas. It too is forecast to be a minimal threat to the peninsula and pass well to our south early in the week. Things should be a little drier today, and thunderstorms will be less common, but keep a weather eye, particularly at higher elevations and on the eastern side of the peninsula later in the afternoon. Track those inbound thunderstorms on our Baja Satellite Animation, updated every 15 minutes.

In Baja California, this is a prime time of year to visit the coastal regions of Baja California and in particular, explore Ensenada, where it will be mostly sunny with temps orbiting around the 80° mark for the next 10 days. As yo move inland it will warm up fast and in Mexicali look for a toasty 103° today, a cold snap of 97° tomorrow, then returning to sunny and over 100° through the rest of the 10 day forecast. Along the Sea of Cortez in San Felipe, it will be in the low 90's today, under mostly sunny skies, but creep back up toward 100° through the rest of the 10 days forecast and humid.

In Baja California Sur, it seems like the Board of Tourism writes the forecast for Loreto, with mostly sunny and low 90's, but I'd bet it will get a little warmer than that, breaking close to 100°. In La Paz we have crystal blue skies and humid this morning, with temps expected to the mid and upper 90's through the weekend. For those of you NOT in La Paz, the forecast have not been calling for thunderstorms nearly every day we have had them. Here on the Insider, we know better, these thunderboomers have rolled in from the deserts and mountains nearly as often as the wettest year, 2012. Expect these storms, which have been ferocious at times this last week, to continue with greater likely hood through the weekend. In our Hurricane Watch Report we have some great videos of the storms that roared through here last week. In Cabo San Lucas the call is for mostly sunny today and mid 80's, remember that Cabo itself is cooled by Pacific breezes, as you move west toward the airport, San Jose del Cabo, the tourist corridor and East Cape temps will get progressively warmer, reaching into the mid 90's.

On our Tropical Watch, Hurricane Lowell is 1400 miles to our west southwest and no longer of interest, we have discontinue coverage. Tropical Storm Maria is about 830 miles southeast of us, well offshore from the Mexican mainland. Maria is forecast to become a hurricane tomorrow and a Major Hurricane later in the week, as it passes south of the Socorro Islands along a very similar course to that of Lowell We will be following the progress of this system through the weekend and my Sunday we should be able to say we are in the clear. Enjoy your day.

TORENTIAL RAINS HAVE WASHED SAND AND CONTAMINATED DEBRIS INTO THE STREETS AND WATERS IN LA PAZ AND OTHER COMMUNITIES HIT BY THESE AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORMS...
