Friday 20 January 2017 A winter storm is moving into the Pacific border area and will bring rain to Tijuana, Ensenada and as far south as San Ignacio. Temperatures will fall to the upper 50's. Showers may extend as far inland as the high deserts where temps will be in the upper 60's. This general condition will continue through Monday. Along the northern Sea, they are going to escape the rain with sunny skies through the chance of rain on Monday. Temperatures will be in the upper 60's and cool a few more degrees. Look for SSW winds to peak late today near 20kts and never drop below 13kts from the southern side of the compass through Tuesday when the winds will fade and return from the north. 

Along the Pacific coast of Baja California Sur, there are probably better days ahead to go whale watching in San Ignacio where winds will blow to 30kts later this evening and with a chance of rain and temps in the upper 50's it will be a little unpleasant. Tomorrow winds will fade in the afternoon under partly cloudy skies and temps will warm to the low 60's. Sunday could be a fabulous whale watching day with temps in the upper 60's and sunshine with winds from the southwest to 13kts.  In the central Sea look for sunshine today, partly cloudy tomorrow and sunny again through the early week. Winds will blow from the WSW to the west to 14kts today and tomorrow and the next significant blow will come late in the work week to 24kts from the north it looks like in the long range predictions. Out in the middle of the Sea winds will ramp up significantly late Saturday to 22kts from the north. In the southern Sea look for Friday, Sunday and Monday to be sunny interrupted by partly cloudy days. Temperatures will be in the mid to upper 70's with Monday reaching into the low 80's. Forecasts differ on the winds in the southern Sea, but I'm going to go with winds developing early Saturday from the north to 16kts peaking early Sunday near 18kts as it shifts NNE. The whole week ahead shows winds from the north 13-15kts as a daily peak. In Los Cabos look for sunshine with the exception of a partly cloudy Wednesday. Temps will climb from a high today of 76°F to 89°F on Monday before cooling dramatically into mid week. 

The Crossing: Conditions today will be favorable but deteriorate rapidly over the next 12-24hrs with winds expected to peak near 27kts from the NNE Sunday night. The winds will taper off slowly through late Monday. Look for winds to build again late Wednesday and a more significant blow is possibly forming up to arrive on Thursday. Sea state will be an uncomfortable 5-7'@ 9sec at the peak. Enjoy your day.
