Weather for the Baja California Peninsula
Baja Weather Synopsis
Monday, May 4, 2015 12:05 PM MST There is a pretty dense cloud cover from San Ignacio north to San Quintin, then again around both Ensenada and Tijuana. In the south much of the Comondu region has partly to mostly cloudy skies, and this extends southeast to La Paz. The rest of the peninsula will have mostly sunny today. Temperatures will warm a little over yesterday, but remain cool for this time of year. No precipitation is in the forecast, but a number of partly to mostly cloudy days will be scattered across the peninsula and through the week.
In Baja California, Ensenada will enjoy partly cloudy and temperatures near 70°F today, but things are going to cool off by Wednesday temperatures will be in the low 60's and won't warm up again until late in the weekend. In Mexicali it will be sunny with temps right around 90°F Monday and Tuesday, then it will cloud up and cool off day by day and by Friday temps may be lucky to break 80°F, but things warm up again by Sunday. Along the Sea of Cortez in San Felipe look for nothing but sunshine through the forecast period, and temps will range from the upper 70's today to the low 80's on Tuesday with a cooling trend toward Friday then warming up again over the weekend.
In Baja California Sur, Guerrero Negro is looking at mostly cloudy today with a dense marine layer, it will break up some on Tuesday and clear on Wednesday, but only briefly. Clouds return on Thursday. Temperatures Monday will reach only into the mid 60's and it will be damp. Tomorrow things will warm back up to around 70°F and work out the week at that temp. In Loreto look for sunny skies and temps just over 80°F through late week. In La Paz we have partly cloudy and cool with temps forecast to reach the mid 80's Monday, then it will cloud up to partly or mostly cloudy through the forecast period and temps will continue moderate, in the upper 80's. In the tourist destination of Los Cabos look for partly cloudy through the forecast period and temperatures in the low 80's until Sunday when it will warm up 5°-7°F.
