Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that during the night there has been several bands of wet clouds moving from the north to the south into the central Sea from the pacific. We could see some more sprinkles this morning. The cape region which has seen a lot of rain in the past few days could see showers again today.
Looking over to the west coast of Mexico where only Manzanillo reported a trace of rain yesterday this morning there are several band of wet clouds moving in from the pacific that could bring more rain from Bandaros Bay south. We’ll see?
South of Manzanillo the coast is clear to Central American this morning.
The Gulf of Tehuantepec will see NE winds in the high 20s today and tomorrow and the mid teens on Wednesday.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where in the Seattle area they can expect valley rain and mountain snow through Tuesday night.
In northern California dry weather is expected this week with the exception of a potent, fast moving, short-wave is then forecast to swing
across the north state later tomorrow into Wednesday bringing a quick shot
of rain to the region. Sacramento Valley is expected to see less than a quarter inch of rain while the Sierras may see upwards of 3-6 inches of snow. Sacramento will warm up to around 60 today.
In southern California mild weather is expected all week with gusterly winds at times. The high in San Diego will be 74.
Looking now over to the desert south west where there will still be valley rain and mountain snow showers around this morning, otherwise the first winter storm of the season will head east and out of the area today. A brief warm-up will be accompanied by drier air by mid week. A trough will sweep through the Four Corners late in the week bringing cooler temperatures, but not much chance of rain. They may see our coldest night of the season so far Friday morning or Saturday morning. Tucson will see a high this afternoon of 59 degrees.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on his side of the Fence that low in the northern sea that brought strong winds yesterday, last night and this morning in the northern Sea has moved east over into Sonora this morning. The northern Sea was still seeing 30 knot gusts this morning; Guaymas showed a 27 knot gust at 5am. The winds have dissipated there since then. As this low continues ENE it will drag the associated cold front across the northern Sea this morning and should dissipate by this afternoon with winds 20 knots or less.
It looks like we could have another round of strong winds in the northern Sea on Thursday as another cold front is expected.

Here is a brief look at the winds for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern sea, Sonoran side: the high teens today from the NW, light NE tomorrow and the low teens from the SE on Wednesday.
The northern sea: The Bay of LA area: the high teens today from the NE, light NE tomorrow and light SW on Wednesday.
The central sea: The Guaymas area: which has been calm since midnight, light NW for the 3-day forecast period.
The central sea, Baja side: Concepcion Bay: light NW today the low teens tomorrow from the NW and light NW again on Wednesday.
The Southern sea: La Paz area: 20-23 from the NE for today and tomorrow and the low teens from the NE on Wednesday.
The East Cape: the high teens from the NE today, around 20 from the NW for the next two days.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan: light NW today, then the low 20s from the NW for the next two days.
Puerto Vallarta: light NW for the 3-day forecast period.
Cabo Corrienties: the low teens from the NE today then the high teens from the NE for the next two day.
South of Cabo Corrienties: it looks like the mid teens from the SW for the 3-day forecast period.

Finally:
Last night while watching the Cowboys whip up on the Raiders 20-17 the question came up, “Who was highest point scorer for the raiders”?
I had to Google the answer this morning.
Runner up was George Blanda with 863. Sebastian Janikowski who is in his 17 season with the raiders has scored an incredible 1,799 points as their punter. For this he gets $19 million over the next 4 years making him the highest paid placekicker in NFL history.
Now you know!

73s Y'all
