In the Gulf of Tehuantepec GALE warnings will remain in effect this morning then drop just below GALE force this afternoon through Saturday. Sunday the winds crank back up with GALE force winds into early next week.
There is nothing cooking in our tropical kitchen this morning so looking now north up to the west coast of America where this image is showing another big honk’n working it’s why out of the Gulf of Alaska and working It’s way down the British Columbia coast into western Washington.
In the Seattle area a series of fronts will bring rain to the low lands and snow to the higher elevations off and on though the weekend. Today’s high in Seattle will be 53.
In northern California a long wet subtropical plume stretching from around Hawaii to the northern California coast is bringing rain, wind and mountain snow, heavy at times today into tomorrow night. Dry Friday and Saturday, then wet weather returns Sunday into Monday. Sacramento will see a high today of 59 degrees.
In southern California just another Chamber of Commerce day with highs in the low 80s forecast into the weekend. The best chance of any rain will be over northern areas between Thursday and Friday.
In the LA basin a warm-up along with some gusty Santa Ana winds is possible for this weekend in between the weather systems.

The high in Tucson today will be 87.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the
Fence light northwest winds will persist across the Gulf of California
through Friday. A cold front will move across the north end of the sea late Friday and Saturday. Strong high pressure building behind the front over in the Great Basin will allow strong winds in the northern Gulf Saturday, reaching the central sea on Sunday. These winds will diminish late Sunday as the front dissipates and the high pressure north of the area shifts east.
Temperatures in the sea will remain in the high 80s even the low 90s through Friday. Saturday through next week we should finally see the daytime highs drop to the low 80s
