Weather for the Baja California Peninsula
Baja Weather Synopsis
Tuesday, April 21, 2015 8:28 AM MST A dense marine layer has moved inland 20 miles or more along the northern Pacific coast and around San Ignacio. Inland in Mexicali it will be sunny and very pleasant. There will be alternating days of partly and mostly cloudy with sunny days in many places along the peninsula over the week ahead as that pesky band of tropical moisture will migrate across the peninsula.
In Baja California, Ensenada may count Wednesday as a sunny day, but other than that it will be partly cloudy or more with marine layer. Temperatures will hang in the mid 60's through the weekend before they warm into the low 70's. Inland in Mexicali it will be sunny through the forecast period and temps in the upper 80's. San Felipe will be sunny through the forecast period as well with temps peaking near 80°F today and cool to the mid 70's through the weekend.
In Baja California Sur, Guerrero Negro it will be sunny all but Wednesday, temps will be close to 70°F today and pretty much through the week with the exception of Thursday which will cloud and cool a few degrees, In Loreto the temps will stabilize in the mid 80's through the week and partly cloudy on Wednesday and Friday will be the exception to the sunny rule. In La Paz we had broken clouds early but skies have cleared to bright blue. We are expecting temps today of about 90°F, but it will be the hottest day of the week, cooling into the mid and upper 80's through the week ahead. Overcast will move in on Wednesday and the clouds won't disappear entirely until the weekend. In Los Cabos it will be partly cloudy or more with the exception of Saturday and Monday, but that is a long way out to call that one. Look for temps in the mid 80's through Wednesday, then cooling just a few degrees into the weekend.
Winds in the Sea will remain benign and from a variety of directions throughout. La Paz may see some strong Coromuel's in the week ahead. Enjoy your day...
