Weather for the Baja California Peninsula

Baja Weather Synopsis

Share with:

Sunday, October 19, 2014 10:52 AM MDT Today we woke in La Paz to that morning where you say "summer is over". Although that may not entirely be the case, the summer heat and humidity is definitely beginning to fade away, leaving us with some of the most spectacular weather for outdoor activities of the year. The Sea of Cortez is still wonderfully warm and the sun is no longer the enemy. The Pacific coast of Baja California will enjoy some great weather as well and even the inland deserts are becoming tolerable. Fishing is still in fall mode and Dorado are being caught outside islands of the Sea near La Paz. In general, a great time to visit the peninsula. Down south on our Tropical Watch there is nothing to watch.Click to Subscribe

In Baja California, Pacific coastal areas from Tijuana to Ensenada will be sunny today with temps in the low 70's and warming slowly through the week to highs in the low 80's by Thursday. Inland in Mexicali look for sun and temps in the low 90's today warming to the mid 90's by Thursday. Along the Sea of Cortez we have corrected our San Felipe weather source and look for sun and look for mid 80's today warming to the low 90's by late week.

In Baja California Sur, Santa Rosalia is looking at sunny skies and low 80's today and low 90's by late week. In Loreto it will be sunny and temps will climb to the mid 80's today and mid 90's on Friday. In La Paz it is sunny and the day started cool but we will warm to around 90°F today and mid 90's by late week. In Los Cabos look for sunny skies and temps in the upper 80's warming to mid 90's by late in the week.

On our Tropical Watch there is nothing brewing in the 5 day forecast down south and there is but one tropical wave in the pipeline from the African deserts. It looks like the Eastern Pacific is beginning to settle down and the surge caused my the Madden Julian Oscillation has subsided. Baja is likely done with storm threats for the year although there is still a technical possibility with the 26°C waters still well up the west side of the Pacific coast. The Eastern Pacific as a whole only has a handful of tropical cyclones in the history of November, but the season runs through Nov 30.

There has recently been a large amount of mis-information circulating in the gringo community and on social media about the current outbreak of Dengue Fever in Baja California Sur. I have refreshed our article about Dengue in Baja with the latest information directly from the state epidemiologist as of 10/10/14 and will post the latest info when the past weeks results are available Monday or Tuesday of the coming week. Although this year and the large amounts of rain we have had produced a larger number of cases than normal, it is still far from an epidemic, effecting less than 1% of the population of Baja California Sur over the last 4 months.
