Weather for the Baja California Peninsula

Baja Weather Synopsis

Friday, July 25, 2014 10:36 AM MDT It is a little quieter today in Baja California Sur after a very strong cell of thunderstorms rocked the tip of the peninsula yesterday, resulting in very strong winds and rain from Cabo San Lucas north about 150 miles. In San Evaristo, just north of La Paz, a sailing vessel of 37' was blown on the rocks with a total loss of the vessel, but all hands were safe. Today we are looking at sunny skies and cooler temps across the peninsula. The forecasts do not call for afternoon thunderstorms, but there is a very strong east to west flow across the Sea and I would not be surprised to see thunderstorms on the eastern shore of Baja this afternoon. Down south we have Tropical Storm Genevieve and two other areas of potential development.

Along the Pacific coast of Baja California, things will continue very pleasant in Ensenada today, with mostly sunny skies and temps in the mid 70's. The folks in Mexicali will trade them for some of that cool temps as they will endure 110°F today. Along the Sea of Cortez San Felipe will be partly cloudy with temps rising to close to 100°, this is one of the locations that would not surprise me to see thunderstorms this afternoon, even though not in the official forecast.

In Baja California Sur, Guerrero Negro be partly cloudy and temps in the upper 90's. In Loreto, will be in the upper 90's today and another of my picks for some unexpected rain this afternoon. In La Paz it is blue skies and temps expected in the mid 90's today, nearly 10°F cooler than yesterday. We escaped the worst of the thunderstorms here yesterday, with the most severe passing over Los Cabos and just north of La Paz later in the morning. Today will be sunny and clear in Los Cabos with temps in the upper 80's.

Winds in the Sea of Cortez are expected to remain light and variable, mostly the result of local thermal conditions. Watch for very strong winds in the vicinity of thunderstorms. Most winds in Baja today will be the result of local thermal conditions.

On our Tropical Watch Tropical Storm Genevieve is moving west into the Central Pacific and poses no threat to Baja. Two other areas of interest are given low chances of development today, but the more easterly one is forecast to have better chances over the next couple of days. Neither system should pose a threat to Baja. Enjoy your day!
