Forecast Synopsis for the Baja California Peninsula of Mexico

 

Monday, February 20, 2017, A cluster of strong Highs surround the peninsula today and they will pump cold air down the Sea of Cortez. Much of the peninsula will have brisk temperatures through midweek. The south will warm up into the week, while the north will see some colder temperatures later in the week. 

The Crossing: There will be a better time for the crossing late in the week, as the winds will blow in the crossing 15-22kts on the eastern side and stronger in the mid sea. Winds will run from the north to the northeast late Tuesday to 24kts. By late Wednesday things will begin to settle down and Thursday through the weekend look more amenable for a crossing to or from the mainland. 

In Baja California, along the Pacific border areas it is going to be brisk while partly cloudy skies alternate with sunshine through much of the week. Temps will bounce around the 68°F/20°C mark through Wednesday then get even colder on Thursday and will remain below 65°F/28°C through the weekend. 

In the high deserts look for partly cloudy today and Wednesday with temps reaching daytime highs around 80°F/27°C. Thursday will see temps fall as much as 10°F/5°C and they are going to stick there and remain cold through the end of the 10-day forecast the first of March. 

Along the northern Sea of Cortez look for sunny skies and cold temperatures with high's today around 68°F/20°C to a high of 75°/F25°C tomorrow before things chill off again and remain cool through the weekend. Winds will come from the NW to 15kts on Wednesday night into Thursday morning. 

In Baja California Sur the northern Pacific coastal areas will see sunshine through the forecast period with temps warming from 70°F/21°C today to 75°F/25°C on Wednesday before cooling to 66°F/19°C on Thursday remaining brisk through the weekend. Winds will peak on Tuesday near 18kts from the NE and remain light and variable through the weekend.

Along the central Sea of Cortez look for sunshine through the forecast period with temperatures in the low 70's/20's today and low 80's/27°C Tuesday and Wednesday. Winds will blow on Tuesday to 18kts from the north and come up again on Thursday and Friday from the NNE to 16kts.

In the southern Sea of Cortez look for sunshine through the forecast period and temperatures warming from a frosty 70°F/21°C today to near 80°F on Wednesday. Temps will remain in that range through the week ahead with the exception of a windy Friday when temps will fall to around 70°F/21°C again. La Paz will see winds peak daily near 18kts from the north through Wednesday then peak near 14kts through the remainder of the week.

In the tourist destinations at the tip of the peninsula look for sunshine through the forecast period with temps around 70°F/21°F today then warming quickly to around 80°F/27°C through Thursday with another dip in temps on Friday. Enjoy your day.
