Weather for the Baja California Sur
10 Day Forecasts
Our forecast right is updated mornings around 8AM. Weather graphics may be updated several times during the day.
Wednesday, December 11, 2013 9:09 AM MST The Pacific coast of Baja California is going to have some of that famous December weather over the next 4-6 days that makes the region so popular this time of year. Today will be sunny and temps near 70°F and this is going to hold through the weekend. But late Sunday another strong High is forecast to move into the 4 Corners Region of the US and stimulate another Santa Anna condition bringing warm desert air to the Pacific coast and cold northern air to the Sea of Cortez. Temps along the coast may reach into the low 80's early next week. Inland today, look for sun and temps approaching 70°F. Along the Sea of Cortez, San Felipe will have the winds abate, somewhat and diminish to the mid to upper teens in knots.
In Baja California Sur Guerrero Negro hover around the 70°F mark for the next couple of days with increasing clouds later today. We have a Pacific tropical flow, often mistakenly referred to as 'Pineapple Express' moving northeast from the warm waters of the Pacific. Clouds will be the call for today, with a slight threat of scattered showers, increasing through being likely tomorrow in many locations in the southern part of the peninsula. Skies will be gray in most areas with temps in the low 70's. This is going to hold on through the weekend, and look for a real norther blow to begin to develop on Sunday and persist into the early week.
