Weather for the Baja California Peninsula
Friday, May 29, 2015 10:01 AM MDT Marine layer has pushed inland along the PAcific coast from south of Ensenada to El Rosario. Drivers along the Pacific coastal areas in that region should watch for dense morning fog. The rest of the peninsula will see sun today as temperatures march toward more summer like levels. Down south Tropical Storm Andres didn't strengthen much over night and will move to the other 24-36 hrs before turing to the west.
In Baja California, Ensenada will be partly cloudy today and fog will be the call for tomorrow AM. Temperatures will remain cool, in the upper 60's to low 70's through the forecast period. In Mexicali much of the same with Mexicali will be sunny and toasty with temps creasing 100° through Monday with a high of 105°F over the weekend. In San Felipe on the Sea of Cortez look for nothing but sunshine and temps bouncing around the 90°F mark through the weekend.
