Weather for the Baja California Peninsula

Baja Weather Synopsis

Share with:

Saturday, August 23, 2014 9:21 AM MD Hurricane Marie continues to gather strength of the southern coast of Mexico and is forecast to become a Major Hurricane (Category 3 or greater) by late Saturday. The system is forecast to pass well to the south of the Baja peninsula. In Baja Sur thunderstorms will again reappear with some regularity and both the nicest and ugliest weather will be found in Baja California.

In Baja California, Ensenada will be the nicest place in Baja with temps in the upper 70's and mostly sunny skies through the weekend. Inland it will warm up fast and Mexicali may be the worst weather the peninsula has to offer with temps climbing over 100°F today and warming going into the week with 108°F being the peak temps Thursday. Along the Sea of Cortez, San Felipe will see partly cloudy today and low 90's, also warming into mid week.

In Baja California Sur,Loreto will have some warm weather in the mid 90's and plenty of sunshine. In La Paz, partly cloudy and mid 90's goes for the early weekend, but the increasing chance of thunderstorms and temps rising a few degrees will work us into the week. In Cabo San Lucas temps will be in the upper 80's with a chance of afternoon thunderstorms.

On our Tropical Watch, The big news is Hurricane Marie, well south of the peninsula and headed to the northwest. Marie is going to get very powerful as it moves over waters in excess of 29°C and gather strength though the early week. Marie will remain a hurricane through the 5 day forecast and not cross into 26°C waters and begin to dissipate until late in the week. Marie is not likely to have a major impact on Baja weather at this time. Enjoy your day.

We will be changing out computer systems in our Weather Department over the weekend and hope to have weather back online by Monday. Enjoy your weekend.
