In Baja California A 10 day string of spectacular weather is headed to Ensenada with temps in the upper 70's to low 80's and sunny skies. Mexicali is going to have a slow warming, perhaps the better word is 'hotting' trend with temps today in the mid 90's but over the weekend expect temps to reach 103°F again with sunny skies. Along the Sea of Cortez, San Felipe will have sun and temps in the low 90's for the foreseeable future.

In Baja California Sur, Santa Rosalia will have sunny skies and temperatures hovering around 90°F for the next week or so. In Loreto look for sun today through Friday with temps in the low 90's, Saturday the showers from the system moving northwest toward Baja will increase the chance of afternoon thunderstorms. In La Paz we are expecting temps in the low 90's today, warming to the upper 90's on Thursday. There will be an increasing chance of thunderstorms Thursday with a likelihood of those showers and thunderstorms much stronger over the weekend. In Los Cabos the chance of thunderstorms will begin late Thursday and continue through the weekend but today will be mostly sunny and temps in the upper 80's.

On our Tropical Watch far to our southeast we have Tropical Depression 19E that has formed this afternoon. The system is forecast to become Tropical Storm Simon sometime tomorrow and continue movement to the northwest through the weekend. Early forecasts call for this to be a weak storm and move well south of the Baja peninsula, but we will continue to track this system as it IS our Hurricane Season.
