Archive of weather for Jun 2007

Saturday June 30, 7:00 a.m. At this moment the tide is out and there is absolutely no breeze. We have switched from evening dog-walks to morning dog-walks when the weather still contains the cool of the night. Again there was dew on the hoods of cars we passed on our way out, but this had all dried off by the time we returned. The silence of the morning was almost alarming. As we returned to our neighborhood we could hear the traffic and thought of the influx of visitors that this town is expecting this week. High/low tides are with us, great for morning clamming and later, family swimming, respecting the tides and the undertows that go with them. Everything is set for a great week. st Yesterday's Max 100F, Min 75F

Friday June 29, 2 p.m. A superperfect afternoon on the beach. Easterly breezes at 6 knots with 87 degrees and 76% Relative Humidity. It is high tide and the water is inviting me for a swim. (ej) 7:00 a.m. Heading into the week-end we can expect our thermometers to reach a max of about 1 degree higher each day. It's the humidity that determines our real comfort and that too remains high. Early this morning we stepped outside to view the stars; there was actually dew on the metal arms of our lawn chairs. And the breeze actually felt unexpectedly chilly. Back to reality...we can expect an influx of vacationers for the July 4th week starting today. Political banners decorate poles and billboards in lieu of flags giving the town a festive atmosphere. Please beware of the highway construction as you enter town. It is very dangerous.st Yesterday's Max 102F, Min 76F

Thursday June 28, 1:30 p.m. Out on the beach another fine afternoon with quite a brisk breeze, 8-10 kt, from the east with the shade temperature at 87 F and 75% RH. The tide is high and the water is perfect! (ej). 7:00 a.m. The strong, high pressure system is forecasted to become yet even stronger. Temperatures will rise a degree or two more through the first part of next week. And the humidity reading here remains at 40% (70% directly on the waterfront). Swimming pools and beach fronts are the most popular gathering places these days. High tide of 15.7 feet is scheduled for noon, perfect for frolicking and water sports. The farmacies are having a run on sun-tan lotion. What used to read as SPF 8-10 now reads 45-50 SPF; the terminology used to tell us how our skin is protected. Sunburns can be very serious and can ruin a vacation. We want this to be one of your best. st Yesterday's Max 100F, Min 78F

Wednesday June 27, 1 p.m. On the beach it is high tide and the water is lapping gently some fifty feet from my window. I just went for a quick dip and it is 89 degrees when I am just floating around on the surface. If I plunge my feet down into the deep water I sense a big drop in the temperature, though the thermometer only records a drop of a degree or so. The human skin is so sensitive to small changes! Under the beach umbrella the mercury also indicates 89 F and the humidity is 68%; there is a light breeze from the northeast at 3-5 knots and not a cloud in the sky. Half a mile down the beach, at the Marina Resort, I can see children splashing in the water and their family is sprawled out in the shade of a palapa - what a tranquil setting and perfect place for a vacation. If you have a family with small children and are looking for a safe and secure place to holiday, this wide sandy beach with its very gentle slope and lazy water is the ideal place to come. No bad days! This beats the Mediterranean hands-down. (ej). 7:00 a.m Strong, high pressure continues. One day follows the other. And our maximum readings are remaining steady. It's the humidity reading that denotes our comfort zone. Sometimes we have rather extreme changes for a four-hour period before that humidity settles back down. During these hours we use the air-conditioner to keep the inside dry and comfortable. Gentle breezes off the water are most appreciated and homes on the waterfront very seldom need that air-conditioning. This evening should be great for BBQ's. st

Tuesday June 26, 11:30 a.m Out on the bay beaches we have a gentle breeze from the north at 4-6 knots with 87 F and 75% RH. A perfect day! 7:00 a.m. Our weather pattern remains the same. Although the thermometer loiters around the century mark, the gentle, almost constant breezes create a very comfortable climate indeed. Afternoon gusts have reached 7-10 mph. Our air-conditioner was not used yesterday until late evening to cool the house for sleeping. This pattern should continue today.We are expecting important company from Fresno this afternoon. Since their weather is similar, I am interested in their comments. Maybe we'll all go swimming this evening. st

Monday June 25, 7:00 a.m. Our humidity remains the most common complaint today. Otherwise, typical weather temperatures for June remain in place. Actually the temperature out here on the beach was about 10 F lower than previously. We spent all day out and about the property enjoying the breeze when it came up, but not feeling the need for the air-conditioner at all. Some residents have chosen to spend the holiday week up at San Matias, a town about 50 miles from here situated up in the hills on Highway 3. They say it is about 10 F cooler again than in San Felipe. Umm! st

Sunday June 24, 7:00 a.m. Strong, high pressure continues...at least through Thursday. It's the humidity that is uncomfortable. Most of us retreat indoors in the afternoons where the air-conditioning can dry out the house and one can siesta in comfort. Then in the evenings when the breeze returns it is back outdoors for Happy Hours and BBQ's. This morning the water is bathtub calm and glistening under the bright sunrays; beckoning for a walk along the beach. st

Saturday June 23, 7:00 a.m. The sun rose yesterday at 5:18 a.m and set at 7:41 p.m. This constitutes the longest day of this year. It's wonderful to arise early in the morning to get those chores done before it warms up. In fact sometimes we are having a neighborhood block party before 6:30 a.m. This morning the humidity is the destroying factor. Around 9:00 when the tide changes, the winds will become boistrous again, to about 10-15 mph, which will offset the humidity factor for body comfort and is a wonderful time to be out and about. I'll save the afternoon for shopping in air-conditioned buildings. st

Friday June 22, 7:00 a.m. A weakening of the high pressure will help temperatures fall a degree or two, but otherwise we can expect clear skies and 100 F temperatures throughout the weekend. With absolutely nothing on the calendar it will be backyard and neighborhood BBQ's all around. st

Thursday June 21, 7:00 a.m. High pressure continues and the temperature continues to rise. We took in a neighbor's dog last night and to keep him company we spent the early morning hours on the patio until the sun ran us off. The water, sky, and breeze are almost still. We drew a line on the patio where the sun is at it's farthest north point, for after today it will start it's treck southward once again. st

Wednesday June 20, 7:00 a.m. High pressure remains. Mostly clear nights will stay with us. Temperatures for yesterday's high, lowered; temperatures for the low, rose 4 degrees. Tough for sleeping. Great for the Electric Co as many more used air-conditioners sometime throughout the night. This morning, although it is now reaching into the 90's, there is that soft, cool breeze that draws you to the outdoor patio (if yours is in the shade). With brilliant sun as the background I marvel at how the birds and animals are so active. Enjoy. st

Tuesday June 19, 7:00 a.m. Near record temperatures may be with us through the rest of the week. High pressure is building, temperatures are warming. Back on June 3 we reported a maximum reading of 87. Last year on June 25 we were recording temperatures in the 3 digit categories. This is the season. st

Monday June 18, 7:00 a.m. Seasonal temperatures for June continue, with hints of almost record temps hitting us by the end of the week. Most of us are not quite acclimated for these readings yet. It is agreed by most to keep the thermometers in our homes set to 82 F as the air-conditioners start to take their toll in our pocketbooks. Clear of clouds the skies frame our beautiful picture of calm waters and lazy fishing boats already beckoning out there. I have decided to try my hand at fishing early next month. st

Sunday June 17, 10:42 a.m. The temperature has risen to 92 F since 7:00 a.m. Our weather gal normally has the weather posted by 7:00 a.m., however, she has a problem with her software. Happy Father's Day and be prepared for a very warm day.

7:00 a.m. Strong high pressure continues. With very little breeze yesterday we really are startng to feel the heat. However, the forcasts read that the temperatures should gradually go down a little as the days progress. Working outside is still very comfortable on the breezy, shady side of buildings or on the beach. Dunebuggies and desert outings are still terrific. st

Saturday June 16, 7:00 a.m. The high humidity of yesterday has dropped back to normal for which we are grateful. Yesterday people were de-layering their clothing as far as possible trying to stay comfortable in a sticky atmosphere. Air conditioners were running at full speed trying to dry out the atmosphere in the offices and homes. This week-end now should be very pleasant for the most part. Take a tip from the natives: try to siesta inside between 11:OO and 2:00, at the extreme heat of the day. As long as there is that soft breeze, the rest of the day should be beautiful. st

Friday June 15, 7:00 a.m.
Well, we now have caught up with the forecasters. Our temperatures are now up into the 90's with everyone else. Today and tomorrow should be the highest. They are expected to start dropping early next week. As we sat lounging on the beach last evening - truly - we discussed the low tides for the day. This morning we had a -3.1 tide, but tonight it is only going to be 1.9. However, the point I'm making is that you can walk a mile out on the sand before reaching the water's edge because the grade is so gradual. The real drop is away, way out there. Someday soon I'm going fishing in the pangas from off the malecon and will ask for more such details. Those pangaderos know where the deep holes are and the best fish. st


Thursday June 14, 7:00 a.m. Our temperature readings are a little surprising considering that the forecasts all read in the mid 90's to low 100's. But the breezes off of the water are extra cooling. As we walked our dogs we commented that the sun's rays were extremely hot, giving sun-burns where-ever you are not protected. Yet the breeze against our backs was really very cooling. Later as we rested and talked in the shade at the side of a trailer the dogs disappeared under the trailer. The latitude of change in the temperatures these days in some cases reaches almost 30 degrees. Yes, morning coffees and evening BBQ's are most popular. st

Wednesday June 13, 9:17 a.m. Sunny but cool days are still with us here in San Felipe. As the strong high pressure system builds we can expect warmer weather as the week progresses. Nevertheless, last evening we dined on the patio with cool breezes fanning the table and commented on how moderate temperatures were in this area, compared to the desert areas where it is now in the upper 90's. No bad days.

Tuesday June 12, 7:00 a.m. Our doors are open allowing the soft, cool, 69 F breeze to flow through. The tide is still out some at this hour, but you can hear the quiet laps of the water. We wonder if we will have the strong winds and whitecaps again today that surprised us yesterday. A strong, high pressure system is building over the SW corner of the United States. This is supposed to bring us the hottest temperatures so far this year.st

Monday June 11, 12:00 p.m. Strong winds now 15 - 20 mph have created an entirely different picture this afternoon. Papers are tossed everywhere. On the water whitecaps have chased any would-be fisherman back onto shore. And any hobby or chores for today can now be put off until tomorrow. Our temperature still reads only 85 on the beach, being kept down by these whistling winds. No clouds in sight. st 7:00 a.m. Temperatures have remained static for the last 5 days but are soon destined to become hotter starting Tuesday. We have enjoyed the high 80's for too long, they say. Soft breezes, moderating any raise in temperatures should remain for awhile longer. No one here can fault this weather pattern. Everyone is enjoying it to the hilt. st

Sunday June 10, 7:00 a.m. Light clouds almost cover our morning skies shielding us from the early sunrays we expected. However, these should burn off quickly and temperatures will rise. Southern breezes remain cool, thus moderating our readings to remain in the high 80's here on the beach. Lovely weather for the wedding yesterday as our couple jumped the broom. A low pressure system will bring stronger clouds early in the next week, and stronger breezes may cause blowing desert sands in the laguna salada area of Highway 5. Drive carefully. st

Saturday June 9, 7:00 a.m. A strong breeze yesterday moderated the temperatures here in San Felipe. And it is forcasted to remain this way through the week-end. There is a wedding planned for Sunday on the beach here at Campo Ocotillo. Clear skies, radiant sun, and soft breezes are the forcast. What could be better than that? st

Friday June 8, 7:00 a.m. The high pressure system now brings us this warming trend. Temperatures are back up into the 90's although the nights are still cool. This is perfect weather to invite friends and relatives to San Felipe. One friend told us of their outing to Mike's Sky Ranch last week-end, high in the mountains to our west, where the temperatures were still in the 70's. Here on the beach we have no complaints as the constant breeze directly off of the water always moderates our temperatures, especially on the east side of the house. This is also the perfect month for water sports and fishing. st

Thursday June 7, 7:00 a.m. A very, very clear day. We now have the dry southern end of a low pressure system and can expect well below average temperatures today. That will creep back up through the week-end as a high pressure system replaces this. Yesterday was a full five degrees lower and the cool night was most welcome. No air-conditioners needed. st

Wednesday June 6, 6:p.m. Amazingly, the fog is lifting in time for us to watch the sun go down. We can assume it is passing over and will not be with us tomorrow. 2:00 p.m. That dense fog is still with us and the temperature is now 83.5 F. We have about a 2-mile visibility, barely able yet to see the mountain. The sun's rays are trying to break through, but they had better hurry, or we'll call it a day.st 7:00 a.m. We awoke to a dense fog, so that our usual beautiful view of the mountains and the sea was blocked out completely. Last night as the clouds rolled over it actually felt like it was going to rain. This pattern is supposed to exist for the rest of the week. So this morning we shall drive carefully into town for a breakfast at Quaquara's one of our favorites. st

Tuesday June 5, 7:00 a.m. My first indication to today's weather was that my dog's fur was quite wet this morning. Yes, the humidity is a high 61. Approaching low pressure will bring winds and gusts of blowing sand across the desert areas between Mexicalli and San Felipe later today. Drive cautiously through this area as the road is narrow and the sand causes one to lose traction on one side and shift the car. Cooler temperatures are expected starting tomorrow. We hope this is true. st

By the way: I read that on saturday night there were 2 small earthquakes just below the California/Mexico border; one at the city of Ocotillo, the other 20 miles SE of Calexico. Both quakes were magnitude of 3.1.

Monday June 4, 7:00 a.m. Clear skies and above warm temperatures may last through tomorrow when the breezes should become stronger and the temperature may reduce to below normal readings. What normal is I cannot tell you but if this is above and wednesday should be below, we can guess the happy medium is the norm. Yesterday we gathered in town at 3:00 but was very disappointed that absolutely nothing was happening till after 5:00. So we had a great pizza at Big Fat Pizza on the corner where we could hear the music, if and when it started. The weather was absolutely perfect with a soft breeze coming off the water front and many people wandered out on the sands of the malecon also waiting. We gave up but I'm sure once it started it was worth the wait. st

Sunday June 3, 7:00 a.m. That NW 1-5 winds reading should change to the SE 5-10 mph by this afternoon. This high pressure system that is keeping us so warm should start to break down by late Tuesday. We should then have cooler, breezy weather for the latter part of the week. There is plenty of activity still going on for "Dia del Marino" festival starting at 3:00 p.m. this afternoon at the Plaza de la Vaquita Marina. The weather should be absolutely perfect. st

Saturday June 2, 7:00 a.m. Good morning folks. I'm back from a fabulous 5000 mile trip that took us in a triangle up to western and eastern Washington and back down through Nevada. The weather was hot in Fresno, CA; overcast in Arlington & Port Orchard, WA, sunny & pleasant in Spokane, WA, beautiful in Reno, NV and picture perfect back here in sunny San Felipe on the Baja... On the beach here we have soft breezes and almost clear skies, which will remain into early next week. Then we can look for some cloud cover and a little cooling. Sorry we missed Marine Day and all the activities. But there are always local Clamato Breakfasts, and BBQ's. I'm off to one right now. st

Friday June 1, 9:49 a.m. The first day of the new month and it feels like it's 105 F this morning. There is only a slight wind and the humidity is thick. The cloud cover we have will keep the heat in and we can expect very warm weather today. I suppose it's appropriate that June 1 would bring a taste of what is to come this summer. Contingency for the Tecate-Baja 500 begins today in Ensenada. Dia de la Marina Nacional (Marine Day) is today with activities on the Malecon. kh
