    For the eastern North Pacific…east of 140 degrees west longitude:

    1. Offshore of Southern Mexico: A broad low pressure area located offshore of the coast of southern Mexico is producing a large area of disorganized shower activity. Environmental conditions appear conducive for development of this system, and a tropical depression is likely to form during the next couple of days. The system is forecast to move generally west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph over the weekend and into early next week, remaining well offshore of the coast of southwestern Mexico.

    * Formation chance through 48 hours…high…70 percent.
    * Formation chance through 5 days…high…90 percent.

    2. Well Southeast of the Main Hawaiian Islands: An area of low pressure is forecast to form over the far western portion of the eastern Pacific basin by this weekend. Environmental conditions could allow for some gradual development of this system, and a tropical depression could form early next week while it moves westward toward and into the central Pacific basin.

    * Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent.
    * Formation chance through 5 days…medium…50 percent.

    Today’s Weather Forecast

    Along the Baja Pacific side today, expect for afternoon temperatures reaching up to 80 degrees around Ensenada, 81 in San Quintin, 82 in Guerrero Negro and up to 89 today around the Todos Santos area.

    Down Baja’s gulf coastline it’s going to be another hot one today with up to 96 degrees for San Felipe, 98 in Bahia de Los Angeles, 97 in Mulege, 95 in Loreto and up to 101 this afternoon around La Paz.

    The Cabo San Lucas area should see up to a maximum of 91 degrees under mostly sunny skies with an onshore breeze from the west-southeast this afternoon providing a bit of relief from the heat.

    Expect for some sizzling high temperatures today down the gulf and around the southern tip as we head into what are typically the hottest weeks of the year ahead where the seawater temps will continue to push upwards and with them, the potential for tropical storm activity and hurricanes.

    The building low pressure mass sitting off southern Mexico continues to organize and pull in additional moisture, creating the potential for a large and powerful storm system in the days ahead. The NHC is predicting this system will form into a Tropical Depression in the coming hours and is expected to quickly develop into a Tropical Cyclone with a projected path that currently runs quite similar to the track taken by Frank in recent days.

    Best to stay tuned and keep our eyes on this one.

    I am looking at the San Diego weather this week and it’s surprising to see how consistent the weather is down to Guerrero Negro. Where do temperatures begin to get hot on the Pacific side as you go south?

      There is no simple answer to that except to say – it depends. Following the Pacific coastline south from Playas de Tijuana down to Cabo San Lucas, the daytime high temperature increase is not linear and varies based on several conditions including the coastal topography, proximity to desert areas, wind patterns, ocean currents, etc.

      For example, the daytime high temps here in the San Quintin Valley – which is not on the coast and lies about 15 miles inland – on average are consistently quite close to Guerrero Negro, about 350 km as the bird flies south yet there are coastal areas much hotter in between, especially in the southern Seven Sisters area.

      Bahia Magdalena averages just slightly warmer than Guerrero Negro yet if on the same day you stop at San Juanico (Scorpion Bay) it is not uncommon to find the afternoon temperatures as much as 10 or 12 degrees hotter (°F).

      So it all depends on where exactly you compare to but the overall trend heading south is temperatures increasing all the way to the equator.

        That makes sense and thank you taking the time for the explanation.
