Baja Weather Synopsis

Share with:

Insider Survey Wednesday, December 17, 2014 8:53 AM MST A weaker winter Low will move in north of California and the front will slide down the Pacific coast. A series of Highs will build in over the 4 Corners region of the US and it looks like on Friday we will have a light to moderate norther blow down the Sea of Cortez and temperatures across the peninsula will take another winter dip.

In Baja California, Ensenada will be seeing more than its fair share of cloudy skies this week with chance of rain today. Temperatures will be in the low 60's through the end of the week when things will warm back up to the upper 60's. In Mexicali, the rain isn't forecast to spread too far inland so the state capital will not likely see rain, just three days of cloudy skies and clearing on Thursday. Temps in Mexicali will remain in the upper 60's. Along the Sea of Cortez, San Felipe will have to endure three cloudy days with clearing on Thursday, with temps in the upper 60's. San Quintin on the Pacific side will have mostly cloudy conditions through the day, temps in the mid 60's, bottoming out in the low 60's today, with a chance of rain. This will be just about the fringe as to how far south the rain will make it.

In Baja California Sur, Guerrero Negro will have partly cloudy skies through today, with temps around 63°F. Clearing will come on Friday but temps will not rise significantly until Monday when it will climb back to the 70°F mark. Further down the Pacific coast in Puerto San Carlos they will have temps moving around the 80°F mark through the weekend. In Loreto look for clear every day this week and temps bouncing around the mid 70's. In La Paz we have overcast skies and temps expected to climb only to the upper 70's today. In Los Cabos look for pleasant temps in the upper 70's and cloudy or partly cloudy through Saturday as some tropical moisture migrates across the tip of the peninsula.

As stated earlier, looking way down the road to the end of the week there is a chance that a Norther will develop as some very cold dense air moves over the 4 Corners region of the US and our Pacific High weakens and backs off to the west. As this happens the pressure difference between the cold dense air and the warmer, lower pressure air to our south will attempt to equalize, by blowing south down the Sea of Cortez. True Norther conditions begin blowing from the northwest, then to the north and finally moving off to the northeast, as the High pressures move east of the 4 Corners.
