Friday, December 13, 2013 8:06 AM MST The Pacific coast of Baja California will continue to have some very pleasant winter days as a Santa Anna condition continues and will build into the weekend. Ensenada will see temps in the upper 60's today but rise to the low 80's for Monday and Tuesday with sunny skies. Inland, in a switch, Mexicali will have similar weather, but just a few degrees cooler. Along the Sea of Cortez San Felipe will be breezy today with temps in the upper 60's and eeking their way into the low 70's.
In Baja California Sur Guerrero Negro will have temps in the low 70's through the weekend, but as the Santa Anna develops in California and coastal Baja California winds will develop in the Sea and blow Saturday to 25kts. Much of the Sea of Cortez will see winds developing late today and velocities will beak at 18-20kts along the shore areas but as you move out into the Sea look for winds 25-30kts during the peak of this blow. Sea state will reach 5'-7' on shore period.
