Weather for the Baja California Peninsula
Baja Weather Synopsis
Tuesday, May 21, 2013 8:36 AM MDT Temperatures are going to begin a slow assent across much of the peninsula as we march into summer. A few patchy clouds, the remains of moisture from Tropical Storm Alvin will drift across the southern most portions of Baja California Sur but no precipitation is expected. Skies will be mostly sunny, so remember to protect yourself from the sun, with a UV index of 12. Temperatures will be in the low to mid 90's. In Baja California, the Pacific coastal areas will begin with a little May Gray, but that will give way to partly to mostly sunny skies and temperatures will be in the mid 70's today, but cool to the 70°F mark through the weekend. Along the Sea of Cortez, in San Felipe look for right around 90° for the next 7-10 days. Winds in the Sea will remain light and variable, mostly under 10kts from the west to west-southwest through the three day forecast period. On Storm Watch, tropical cyclone formation is not expected in the next 48hrs. Our Sea Surface Temperature and SST Anomaly graphics have been updated to show the warming of the Eastern Pacific to above normal levels for this time of year. Enjoy your day.
