Weather for the Baja California Peninsula
Baja Weather Synopsis
June 19th was the last regularly scheduled forecast for June, forecasts & graphics will only be updated only when I have a moment. After a brief vacation we'll be back to bring you a whole new look, new weather section and new stories – all coming in July.
Tuesday, June 23, 2015 10:17 AM MDT Pacific coastal areas will continue to have June Gloom dragged inland from the warming deserts where temps will cross 112°F today. Along the Sea of Cortez is will be a wee bit cooler and along the entire Pacific coast there will be a cooling breeze from the NNW.
In Baja California, Ensenada is reporting sunny skies this morning with the marine layer pushing back today with temps in the week ahead with mid 70's. In Mexicali it will be smokin' hot today at 112°F the forecast high. Along the Sea of Cortez San Felipe will warm to right around 100°F through the week ahead with nothing but sunshine.
In Baja California Sur, In Guerrero Negro is going to see sun today and temps in the mid to upper 80's through the forecast period. Loreto will be sunny or mostly through the forecast period with temps in the mid 90's. Back in La Paz they will be having sunny skies and temps broaching 100°F.
On our Tropical Watch, There are three tropical waves moving west along the ITCZ, in the Eastern Pacific, but in a lull period of the Madden Julian oscillation there is limited moisture stirred up to generate a storm. Waves are also tracking further south than early in the month, an unusual inversion. So the NHC forecasts no tropical cyclone formation in the next 36hrs.
Once again it is time for a little Hurricane Reality Check and why not to panic at every little storm spinning south of us. I look at what fired up our first three storms and what probably lies ahead in the next couple of weeks.
