Archive of weather for February 2006


Tuesday 28 Feb 2006 -7:00 a.m. What a warm night we had. The light clouds have turned heavy. Today and tomorrow will remain overcast but the warm, light winds are still from the south. A very good week to catch up from the breath-taking schedule we have just been through. This is definitely Spring weather. People tend to shed their winter layers too quickly and end up with the habitual spring colds which are very hard to shake. These clouds should pass by Thursday but another heavy cloud is following which may or may not hit San Felipe. Nevertheless, by next week-end the promise is clear skies for El Dorado's Casino Night. st

Monday, 27 Feb 2006 -7:00 a.m. Another low pressure system is approaching from the Pacific side. Light clouds this morning will increase through early Wednesday. Today should be as warm again as the week-end until the clouds become heavier; we do not expect rain. Great for Carnival events which continue on through Tuesday, when there is one more parade. st

Sunday, 26 Feb 2006 -7:00 a.m. That heavier low cloud pattern pushed off to the north of Baja. This morning we still have soft cloud streaks but again these may burn off. Temperatures have swung above normal for these busy, busy, week-end days. No one could have asked for more. st

Saturday, 25 Feb 2006 -7:00 a.m. Light clouds are again floating across our sunlit skies this morning, the first fingers of a heavier low cloud pattern laying out over the Pacific coast. However this will not affect us this week-end in the least. We are having warmer than normal temperatures for a few days, to help us celebrate all the wonderful activities that are going on today alone; Today and tomorrow we have the carnival parade and the Hobie Cats out there on the water doing their thing. The Animal Rescue Hoe Down fundraiser is only on today. The trouble is, this is all taking place in the afternoon. What to do. With the Malecon absolutely full of colorful booths and food centers, you will have no trouble with before and after times, so why not make it a full day. st

Friday, 24 Feb 2006 -7:00 a.m. Finally we are getting the warmer weather promised for this very busy week-end. A gentle wind is coming from the west this morning. Today is known as Dia de la Bandera, the day of the flag. The Carnival Parade will start tomorrow with, of course, flags available everywhere. That light breeze is most welcome to the Hobiecat Regatta getting under way today and for Flag Day itself. See you at Hotel El Cortez's Poolside Fiesta in honor of the hobiecats. st

Thursday, 23 Feb 2006 -7:00 a.m. All forecasts promise warmer weather for the week-end. There is a light cloud band floating across San Felipe which will probably burn off early. The calm waters look just right for practicing hobie-cats preparing for the race this week-end. There is no end to activities from today through Monday. Warm weather will be appreciated. st

Wednesday, 22 Feb 2006 -7:00 a.m. The clouds have all but faded. But the bright skies may be a little misleading as far as temperatures go. That north-west wind is still cold. However all reports promise warmer weather by this busy week-end. There is the Parade of Flags day; a Carnival Parade, a Hoe Down fundraiser for the Animal Rescue Assoc and more. Let's hope we get into the high 70's soon. st

Tuesday, 21 Feb 2006 -7:00 a.m. Yesterday the winds swung back to the north and kept the temperatures really down here. This morning there is a predominent cloud band laying in a west to east pattern across the Baja and directly over San Felipe. The sun is trying it's best to peak through the intermittent openings to do what was expected, start the warming trend. Fighting the north wind also makes this a little difficult. Let's hope the clouds move on later today. st

Monday, 20 Feb 2006 -7:00 a.m. That northern freeze that swung down and to the west of us, is now beginning to turn around. We can expect winds from the west and southwest to bring us a warming trend in the next couple of days. Many visitors came down from the U.S. for President's Day week-end and found it unseasonably cold, but there was so much going on in any corner, they just borrowed jackets and joined in the fun. We are truly looking forward to normal temperatures, possibly Wednesday or Thursday. st

Sunday, 19 Feb 2006 -7:00 a.m. Low pressure along the pacific coast is keeping our temperatures down. Yesterday's early morning statistics at 48 degrees may be the lowest temperature I have recorded for this winter, Roy and Joan, so don't be afraid to come on down. We are now going to return to the normals and maybe a little above that. You will miss the wonderful Senior Sunday program put on by the San Felipe ARP Assoc today but next Friday is the Day of Flags in Mexico. They will appreciate the warmer weather. st

Saturday, 18 Feb 2006 -7:00 a.m. Actually, the sun is breaking through the clouds at this moment, but will have problems throughout the day sifting through one streak after another. These clouds are the spinoff of a heavier system to the south, southwest of Baja which will not really affect us in any way. We are spoiled after that unscheduled touch of spring. Stay with the layered, warm clothing at least through most of the coming week. st

Friday, 17 Feb 2006 -7:30 a.m. What a dull dreary day is ahead of us. And this pattern is expected through the week-end. However, most of us will be well involved in local activities, not to worry about the clouds. Today many of the tougher guys with their rails and dune-buggies are headed out to the desert for a guided tour through Apache Tears canyon. Saturday is devoted to local groups and the restaurants and night-clubs. With a little luck, the sun may yet shine through for Senior Sunday, San Felipe Association of Retired Persons's biggest event of the year. Stay with us. st

Thursday, 16 Feb 2006 6:30 a.m. When I awoke this morning the tide was still coming in and the surf was so loud it sounded like the Pacific. I gathered my sweater-coat around me and stepped out on the patio, expecting the warm greeting of yesterday, but the cold wind from the NW whipped at me. So I retreated until after breakfast. Later in the day the wind will change more from the west and of course it could well reach into the 70's. I'm off to the U.S. today. A good day for indoor shopping. st

Wednesday, 15 Feb 2006 7:00 a.m. Our beloved sun is back. The wind is now coming from the SW and may get stronger as the day progresses. Last night the temperatures dipped into the high 40's. Sorry to say, they report that it will be a little cooler starting tomorrow but not to worry. That sun will keep San Felipe in great shape for the coming week-end. Valentine's Day is behind us now, with some great parties I heard, and we are now looking forward to Senior Sunday, a day we celebrate ourselves. st

Tuesday, 14 Feb 2006 7:00 a.m. The heavier part of that cloud cover has reached San Felipe and hopefully will move on toward the east. This morning the cloudy, light blue skies and the calm, light blue water has become like one scene. Temperatures were lower throughout the night, but should shoot back up as the clouds move on this afternoon and evening. 'Happy Valentine's Day".4:30 p.m. We were walking the dogs and I couldn't resist this photo. The temperature is still 61, everything is calm and kind of eerie. st

Monday, 13 Feb 2006 7:00 a.m. A weak low pressure system west of Baja is sending this light cloud cover over San Felipe this morning and is expected to continue through Tuesday. However, the temperatures are still a little above normal and no-one is complaining. It is reported that a series of low pressure systems from the Gulf of Alaska is expected to bring cooler, breezy conditions to the west coast Wednesday. After the extremely busy week-end, we are all hoping to catch up today, and gearing up for another busy week, starting with Valentine's Day on Tuesday and local parties all around. st

Sunday, 12 Feb 2006 7:00 a.m. It is early yet. The temperature is rising fast. That bright morning sun is shining directly into my window, beckoning me to start the day. On top of the full agenda yesterday we ventured out to Playa del Oro where the 'Suns of Beaches' were playing to a full house to celebrate this camp's 4th Anniversary. This morning we have a breakfast at the SFARP lodge. This afternoon there is the Las Amigas Valentine Party at the Ejido. Part of the conversation centers arouind the beautiful full moon we have been having and the low tide tonight, followed by the early morning high tide. Without clouds the sunrises are not quite so beautiful. It does take a little of everything to make the best pictures. 12:00 p.m. As yesterday, the winds have whipped up and the waters again sport whitecaps. st

Saturday, 11 February 2006: 8:10 a.m The temperature has already climbed to 69 F. The flags are reporting a north wind 5-7 mph with stronger gusts expected this afternoon. But it is not a 'cold' north wind. It is actually lovely out there, perfect for all the events of the day. If you do not get to attend the Paella Festival just take a walk on the beach, daydream, and let that wind blow through your hair. I did not get much sleep last night because the moon and stars were so bright in our clear night skies. Have a great day, everyone. At 11:30 a.m. 71 F. I am astounded at how fast the wind whipped up. The winds are still mostly from the north and are now gusting up to 16 mph. with whitecaps appearing on the water.st

Friday, 10 February 2006 - 7:00 a.m. - As promised, the overcast broke up early yesterday afternoon and the sun did it's job. Wednesday's high was only 73 F as compared to yesterday's high of 79 F. In town it is normally 5+ degrees higher again. It will be great for all the activities on this week's calendar. On saturday there is the Paella Festival, a Puppet show and on Sunday a Valentine Party. We see only sunshine for the whole week-endp>

Thursday, 9 February 2006 - 7:00 a.m. - Ooooh what a dismal looking morning. San Felipe skies are completely overcast. But a baja low pressure system is moving northeast to the southern Arizona border this morning. Hopefully we will see our favorite sun later this afternoon. El Cortez hotel is gearing up for it's big event of the year,"the Paella Festival". And we forcast a beautiful day for this, one of the best. st

Wednesday, 8 February 2006 - 7:00 a.m. - it was warmer in town than at the beach (high 82), today is a carbon copy of yesterday. Everywhere people are out sprucing up their yards for Spring. Smiles and handshakes. These past few mornings we have had beautiful sunrises and tourists are loading up with pictures. I'm heading for the city and Guaguara's Restaurant, one of the best breakfasts in town. st

Tuesday, 7 February 2006 - 7:52 a.m. - Although the skies appear dismal this morning, the temperatures are right up there. We are watching the Santa Ana winds fanning the fires north of the border. Yesterday the winds reached 19 mph, causing whitecaps, right here in San Felipe. This morning all is calm, even the water is still. Let's see what the rest of the day will bring. st

Monday, 6 February 2006 - 8:00 a.m. - Sitting here, broken hearted. The SeaHawks lost, my world has parted. Ok. So it's a new Monday morning back here in San Felipe. One thing for sure, the statistics are all up. The north wind is not all that cold, but it's keeping that Sea very active. A few clouds overhead to make the day picture perfect. st

Sunday, 5 February 2006 - 7:00 a.m. - A partly cloudy sky can be both mean or beautiful. This morning the clouds created such a beautiful sunrise every new visitor will be taking pictures. But, pooph, in 15 minutes it's all gone. Today will be a bit cooler, but nonetheless, spring clothes will be the mode while watching Super Sunday football. st

Saturday, 4 February 2006 - 7:59 a.m. Yesterday was the warmest day so far this year. It gives hope that Spring has sprung in Baja. Now to stay focused and do the shopping today, rather than get drawn to the Malecon where everyone gets to dream and play. Remember: They have changed the legal date for San Felipe's Anniversary so that Monday will be the date government offices and banks will be closed, as well as The Net. However, all festivities will be held on Sunday, beginning at 8:30 a.m. at the old Pioneers Cemetery on Chetumal. The weather should remain perfect throughout the entire week-end. st

Friday, 3 February 2006 - 8:27 a.m. The lazy sea is such a light blue this morning it almost blends into the sky. Of course these colors depend on the atmosphere, but some days the water is extremely dark. This morning would draw any would be swimmer to bring soap in his other hand. They have changed the date for San Felipe's Anniversary so that Monday will be the date celebrated this year. The weather should remain perfectly throughout the entire week-end. st

Thursday, 2 Feb 2006 -8 a.m. Everything is calm again this morning. A soft hazy cloud lays above our sleepy little city as it comes to life for another full day during the busy snowbird season. This should pass over, with very little cloud action throughout the rest of the day. This week-end we will be celebrating our 81st Anniversary of San Felipe and the weather should be just perfect. Although no local parades are planned, there will be many backyard BBQ's going on. And the San Felipe ARP group (SFARP) has a fun desert tour planned for their members. February is a full month, and the weather is fully co-operating. st

Wednesday, 1 Feb 2006 -7 a.m. What a difference 5 degrees makes. We actually sat on the patio at the El Cortez Hotel and ate lunch yesterday in complete comfort. The water was so calm it felt like we were sitting at a lakefront. We discussed the fact that just around and past the 2 major hills in San Felipe the wind can be blowing in an entirely different direction, like it's on a swirl, if you will. Indeed, 2 flagpoles 50 feet apart can be different some days. This morning at 7:00 we had a soft SW breeze at about 5 mph. An hour later it is still and quiet, The water today is a light blue, and it almost melts into the sky. 8:00: The temperature has now reached 56 degrees. Let's get this posted. st
