Weather for the Baja California Peninsula

Baja Weather Synopsis

Share with:

Tuesday, August 19, 2014 9:38 AM MDT A very quiet on our Baja Satellite image this morning with only a puff of thunderstorms departing the mainland. To our southwest we have Tropical Storm Lowell, which has made it up to a moderate tropical storm intensity. There is a single tropical wave entering the Eastern Pacific. The high humidity will likely generate thunderstorms in higher elevations and the usual locations in Baja California Sur and along the eastern side of the peninsula this afternoon.

In Baja California, Ensenada will have some very summery temps through the week, with temps a little cooler today, in the mid 70's. Mexicali will be warm at 106° but a cooling trend is in store for tomorrow. Along the Sea of Cortez San Felipe is expecting 97°F today, and cooling later in the week.

In Baja California Sur, Loreto will have low 90's and a darn good chance of afternoon thunderstorms. In La Paz look for low 90's with a very good chance of afternoon thunderstorms. In Los Cabos look for cloudy skies and the chance of thunderstorms with temps climbing into the upper 80's. Track those inbound thunderstorms on our Baja Satellite Animation, updated every 15 minutes.

Down south we have Tropical Storm Lowell is moving to the northwest more than 730 miles to the west-southwest of Cabo San Lucas. TS Lowell is forecast to stay well to the west of the Baja peninsula through its life cycle and should cross the 26°C thermo cline sometime Wednesday and begin to dissipate more quickly, without ever making landfall. Down south, WAY down south off the coast of Costa Rica is a new potential development, forecast to move to the northwest and the Socorro Islands are just north of the early projected path. It is given a low chance of development in the next 36hrs, but the odds increase to high by the weekend as it moves northwest. Enjoy your day.
