We started off with some more cold temperatures this morning. There was some patchy frost reported by weather watchers in several areas. High pressure had built into the region, and that allowed for more clear skies and light winds.
The high will slowly slide offshore this afternoon. This will allow the winds to turn to out of the south at 5-10mph. Between that and the ample sunshine we will warm to the low-mid 60s later today. It should be pretty nice out. Tomorrow we’ll have southerly winds through most of the day. Plus, we’ll still hold on to a lot of sunshine. Highs will rise to the low 70s. A cold front will move through Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. So we’ll be dry and chilly again Wednesday and Thursday. Highs will be in the 50s. Lows will probably be in the 30s and 40s again as well. Towards next weekend the long-range models are already suggesting a coastal low that will develop. The GFS and European models differ a little on the strength and placement, but they are both in the same ball park. Those subtle differences could make a difference in the strength of the wind in our region. There may be some minor tidal flooding either way. Possibly moderate. However, it is still way to early to be definitive. Stay tuned for updates.
Things are quiet in the Atlantic Basin.
However, there is a major hurricane in the eastern Pacific that will be impacting Mexico. Hurricane Willa was almost to category 5 strength this morning. It was a strong category 4. It is forecast to make landfall over western/central Mexico by late tomorrow as a major hurricane.
