slightly above normal the thermometer tells us it's like spring.
The birds are acting a little bit
'lovy' and the plants are drinking a little more water. The forecast
promises it will be like this all week, in the 70's, a bit above
normal. We can expect cool winds to kick up periodically but
no rain in sight. It's absolutely great for the Animal Rescue
'VIVA' shoe sale at the pavilion with the after-party at Rumors.

Saturday, Jan 28, 2011 - 2:00
p.m. Walking on the beach
is a real chore. The wind has kicked up to about 25 mph on the
contained on shore. Cold it is not! The temperature is riding
in the 70's. The dogs loved it .8:00 a.m. Slightly
choppy seas catch our eye this morning. Also, there's a brisk
northern breeze out there. But at 67 degrees
we're not complaining. Temperatures favor light attire through
all of next week. We expect the decreasing winds to revert back
to the SW by tomorrow for the San Felipe Animal Rescue, VIVA,
shoe sale at the pavilion with the after-party at Rumors. st
Thursday, Jan 26, 2011 - 8:00 a.m. What
a beautiful morning. Any threat of rain has disappeared replaced
sun-bathing temperatures in the high 70's through Monday. Warm
breezes are from the SW. This is great for the Las
Amigas Casino Day on Thursday and the VIVA shoe sale at the pavilion
on Sunday with the after party at Rumors. st ....Yesterday's
high was 71, low 59.
Tuesday, Jan 24, 2011 - 8:00 a.m. As usual we
did not see any rain as the clouds passed over us Monday. Today
we have a few clouds lingering, and a soft northern breeze. Fishing & Shrimping
ought to be great Although it's cool and overcast somewhat we
are not complaining as the forecast is nothing but positive for
the rest of the week. This is great for the Las Amigas Casino
Day on Thursday. st ....Yesterday's high was 66, low 56.
Monday, Jan 23, 2011 - 8:00 a.m. You can almost
hear a pin drop it is so quiet out there. A light , almost transparent
cloud cover with plenty of sun coming through to cast shadows.
But still it is cold enough to send dollars to the Electric Co.
We could get some showers early this afternoon, but expect it
to move on quickly. Starting tomorrow we can look for our warm
sun to return for the rest of the week. st ....Yesterday's high
was 72, low 54.
Sunday, Jan 22, 2011- 8:00 a.m. A beautiful morning
in spite of the possibility of rain by tomorrow night. We have
some high clouds, more to the south of us, and a cool northern
breeze but not as strong (yet) as the threat last evening. After
Tuesday we can start looking for warmer temperatures heading
to the end of the week....Yesterday's high was 72, low 54.
Saturday, Jan 21, 2011- 9:00 p.m. Surprisingly
the wind had picked up this evening and knocked our patio chairs
around. But it didn't last all that long. We headed for bed
and slept easily through the night. 9:00 a.m.Rising
late this morning the sky is now mostly clear but it is warm
out there. Great for the first Club de Pesca-Punta Estrella 27
km beach run/walk today. We do not expect any chance of rain
until after the week-end. st ...Yesterday's high was 66, low
Friday, Jan 20, 2011- 11:00 a.m. The
sky has dropped and we have a dense fog, so close we can't
see the hills close by. However by 1:00 everytthing was clear
again. 8:00 a.m.Plenty
of sunshine but some clouds are starting to again accumulate
in our area. Nothing like Oregon and Washington these days.
It should hold good for the week-end; good news for the first
Club de Pesca-Punta Estrella 27 km beach run/walk on Saturday.
But they are warning of a chance of showers by monday or tuesday.
Notice we are having earthquake activity. st ...Yesterday's high
was 65, low 50.
Thursday, Jan 19, 2011- 8:00 a.m. Tenperatures
remain low but the sun continues to shine. With only soft breezes
to offset, we expect it to again warm up quickly. This should
be great for the first Club de Pesca-Punta Estrella 27 km beach
run/walk on Saturday. st. ...Yesterday's high was 68, low 47.
Wednesday, Jan 18, 2011- 8:00 a.m. What a beautiful
red sunrise we arose to this morning. But in 20 minutes it was
turning a soft blue sky, with very few cloud streaks aloft.
The winds, which were from the south-west, have completely
died leaving the sound of the water just slipping up and
down on the bea ch. With very low tides recently, a
beachfront has grown. With warmer weather this week clamming
and beach-combing are popular. What a life! st. ...Yesterday's
high was 63, low 56.
Tuesday, Jan 17, 2011- 8:00 a.m. Looks like we have a wonderful
forecast ahead of us this week. Clear skies, soft warm breezes,
and calm waters: what more could one ask for? I expect the
park will be full for the Taste of San Felipe day put on
by the Rotary. st. ...Yesterday's high was 71, low
Monday, Jan 16, 2011- 8:00 a.m. We have a gradual warmer and dryer trend
from West to East following the tiny period of rain yesterday. High pressure
is again building across the western states. We have a 1st quarter moon with
medium tides. No earth quake activity in our area. Looks like it will be a warmer,
dry day Tuesday for the "Taste of San Felipe" put on by the Rotary.
st ...Yesterday's high was 65, low 51.
Sunday, Jan 15, 2011- 6:40 p.m. The rain
lasted only 10 minutets. When I stepped outside the
door the stars were shining. So much for that threat. 6:00
p.m. 60 degrees! Halleluyah! It's actually raining
in San Felipe. It has been solid overcast all day, not cold,
but damp, here in Campo San Felipe. We have a warm temperature
with absolutely no breeze. Actually very pleasant as it just
now is turning dark for the night. I wonder what is in store
for us? 8:00 a.m. A heavy cloud pattern
is sweeping directly over us as we speak. The threat of rain
is definitely possible today through early Monday. Temperatures
are under 60 degrees this morning with a high of only 66
yesterday. A warming trend will follow this low with clear
skies for Martin Luther King day and the Rotary "Taste
of San Felipe" following on Tuesday. We must be living
right. st ...Yesterday's high was 66, low 42.

Saturday, Jan 14, 2011- 9:00 a.m. The
sky was completely clouded and turning red at 6:30 a.m. 20
minutes later it
was all over; the sky now is just overcast. Low pressure
will bring a chance of rain by tomorrow night through Monday,
Martin Luther King Day. But Tuesday should be a great change
back to sunny for the Rotary Taste of San Felipe. st ...Yesterday's
high was 68, low 55.
Friday, the 13th, 2011- 8:00 a.m. Jogging fever is taking hold
in the camps. It's not really cold, a slight, brisk breeze
is enough to goad you on. Mostly clear skies may change as
they predict a slight chance of showers in the Yuma forecast
Sunday night. Barring that, we expect our weather to continue
in the 60's through next week. st ...Yesterday's high was 68,

Thursday, Jan 12, 2011- 8:00 a.m. Great
photos emerge with cloudy skies. Warm jackets or sweate are
all that is needed
as temperatures remain normal and no rain predicted. We saw
several shrimp/fishing pangas in the waters north of the
rock. High tides have left the sand smooth once again. We
see several joggers both on the beach or on the mile strip
between camp and the highway. I suspect the same activity
for the other camps in the area, especially when we have
low tides. st ...Yesterday's high was 70, low 50.
Wednesday, Jan 11, 2011- 9:00 a.m. Cloudy
skies created good sleeping-in weather. This photo was
taken at 6:45 a.m. There was no breeze to speak of. But we
bundled up ready for another cold day. I guess this
will last through Friday. Maybe we'll even have a chance
of light showers
from the west on Sunday. (More roof jobs for local laborers?)
We should return to normal next week. st ...Yesterday's
high was 66, low 51.
Tuesday, Jan 10, 2011- 8:00 a.m. Brrr!
It has dropped down below the 60 mark here. The electric
company will be in full
operation. There are a few strong, non-threatening
clouds overhead but no breeze to speak of. The calm waters
again crept almost to the high mark of 18', low of
-2.5'. This clears the sand & tire marks from 4-wheelers
etc. and makes it much easier for strolling or beach-combing.
Also low tides are great for clamming. Dress warmly
and enjoy. st ...Yesterday's high was 65, low 59.9.
Monday, Jan 9, 2011- 8:00 a.m. Almost identical forecasts
persist today. We're still in the 60's with a cool breeze
from the north. Plenty of encouraging sunshine but it is
a winter-cold that reminds us to wear jackets. When that
sun drops down to the mountain line to our west it gets dark
and cold quickly even though Ensenada is still in sunshine.
With the full moon we will have a high tide of 18' about
1 a.m. and consequently a low tide of -3' about 8 this morning;
a lower tide of -2.7 by 8 this evening. Great for clamming.
st ...Yesterday's high was 68, low 56
Sunday, Jan 8, 2011- 8:00 a.m. Strong north
winds have chilled the house so dress warmly this
morning. Clear, cold skies are not inviting, even colder
tomorrow morning. They say that it is down to normal readings
for this time of year. Hang in there
for Tuesday leads into the rest of the week for warmer temperatures.
The Las Amigas are having a Sunday brunch scheduled for this
rest of us will probably hug our fire-pots. Expect cooler
morning lows by tomorrow. st ...Yesterday's high was 69, low

has begun to clear away the fog and we are again wearing
Also, it is reasonably warm. We did not need heavy jackets
to walk the dogs. 8:00 a.m. What a shock to
see a heavy fog bank roll in across the Sea from the east.

mile south of us. We expect lower temperatures and breezy
conditions today through Tuesday. Bring out your heavy jackets
again folks. st...Yesterday's high was 70, low 52
3 King's Day
Friday, Jan 6, 2011- 8:00 a.m. Another beautiful day in paradise.
The water is so calm; take your company fishing. Today
is DIA DE REYES, the final day of the holiday period when
many Mexican families celebrate and exchange gifts. Then
follows a week-end, when they can continue time off and
holiday leave. On Monday most business activity will start
up for the new year. st...Yesterday's high was 72, low
Thursday , Jan 5, 2011- 8:00 a.m. We're
still well above normal temperatures for this time of the
A low pressure system
and windy conditions are expected to bring them down to at
least normal over the week-end. At SFARP Wed we learned about
SKYMED emergency evacuation plans; If a plane cannot land
at night, they will pay for an ambulance to get you out of
SF. At the bank yesterday there were very few customers compared
to a normal Thursday; businesses are still on slow-down till
after Dia de Reyes (3 King's Day) tomorrow. Watch out for
Monday, st...Yesterday's high was 71, low 58
Wednesday Jan 4, 2012 - 8:00 a.m. Continuing
the high pressure system through the rest of the week we
will be in above normal
temperatures through the weekend. We are within an ebb-tide
period, great for clamming and beach-combing. Businesses
are still enjoying this week's slow-time but watch out for
while they try to catch up. This morning at the SFARP meeting
at the Ocotillos lodge should give more insight to the town's
plans for the new year. st...Yesterday's
high was 73, low 58
Tuesday Jan 3, 2012 - 8:00 a.m. The high pressure system
remains. Forecasts continue to suggest above normal readings
this week, maybe 5 degrees above normal by Sunday. However,
situated right on the waterfront we will remain cooler. Businesses
will remain slow or nil through Friday of this week, 3
King's Day which leads us into the week-end. Next week will be the
start of 2012 activity. Enjoy till then. st...Yesterday's
high was 71, low 61
Monday Jan 2, 2012 - 8:00 a.m. We're disappointed
that they've changed the forecasts. Our expectations for
in the high 70's have not yet matured. Low pressure moves
in towards the end of the week cooling us by just a few degrees
more. The Rotary meets this morning. Then calm waters and
a low 4'8" tide at 1.30 p.m. will encourage clamming
and shelling in warm sunshine. There's always something happening
in San Felipe...Yesterday's high 71, low 59
HAPPY NEW YEAR
Sunday Jan 1, 2012 - 9:00 a.m. High pressure will keep temperatures
in the high 70's through all of this week in the San Felipe
area. Light winds have switched to the NNE. Last night
some wore faux furs expecting it to be cold for New Years
Eve parties but today they will be in shorts. We may hit
record highs by Thursday of this week. Stand by...st Yesterday's
high was 71 low 57.
Saturday Dec 31, 2011- 8:00 a.m. How great it is to be here
in warm San Felipe. High pressure will remain for the week-end
across the desert south-west. We are still expecting high
temperatures near or into the 80's for New Year's Day.
All the major restaurants will be in high gear, and many
smaller parties will gather to avoid the midnight traffic.
Semi-formal, warm-weather clothes will be popular this
year because it is so tropical. Happy New Year's Eve everyone,...st
Yesterday's high 74, low 53.
Friday Dec 30, 2011- 8:00 a.m. What wonderful
weather for New Year's celebration days. With high pressure
remaining, it is supposed to climb each day, at least till
next Tuesday. A soft, warm breeze fans our flag and the ocean
waters ripple with small waves. Further across the horizon
we see a foggy coastline over Puerto Penasco but it will
no doubt burn off quickly. Inland some friends are going
to take a desert run to close out the year. In town business
has picked up some. And at home everyone, it seems, is busy
cooking or baking for tomorrow & the week-end. Happy
holidays everyone. ..st Yesterday's high 69, low 53
Thursday Dec 29, 2011- 8:00 a.m. Happy
Holidays. With temperatures in the 70's all this week friends
and families will be celebrating
in the warmest weather of the season; with New Year's Day
maybe 77 degrees. Not a cloud in the sky to cast a shadow
on calm waters softly rippling in almost no winds. It is
days like this that beckon to would-be fishermen to hire
a panga-deer who know the area well and can almost guarantee
to find good spots. And they will even help you clean your
catch for a minimum donation.....st. Yesterday's high 72,
============================= small vacation
Wednesday Dec 21, 2011- 8:00 a.m. Happy
Holidays. It is back up to 60 and by Christmas it may
be up to 70 again.
Our beautiful sun has c hased away all
signs of clouds . Mt. Diablo is clear of any snow. With
no breeze whatsoever and
calm waters it is going to be a beautiful San Felipe
day. Indeed, it is obviously leading into a great week-end
have a Merry Christmas. ....st. Yesterday's high 72,
Dec 20, 2011- 3:30 p.m.
I'd like to say the rain has stopped, but it is still overcast
We show 1/2" in some places. Tony writes that Punta
Estrella had almost an inch of rain. However it is 60 degrees
and no breeze, very pleasant. 8:00 a.m. In
complete surprise it is pouring down rain here in San Felipe.
We arose around 5:00 a.m. to
find a complete
heavy overcast. Sure enough within 1/2 hour we had a heavy
cloudburst. Besides several electrical outages I have had
extreme difficulty in trying to get this weather report up
will stop here for now. It is now 10:00 a.m. and still pouring
rain.....st. Yesterday's high 73, low 54
Monday Dec 19,
clouds float across the skies in another relatively cold morning.
That Pacific low pressure system will keep it cool through
Saturday with a very slight chance of showers. Hopefully dry
and warmer weather will be with us next week for Christmas.
Tamales anyone? st. Yesterday's high 73., low 48.
but it's cold, in the high 50's this morning even though next
Wednesday is the 1st day of Winter, meaning the sun will start
on it's return north. Let's hope it warms up into the 70's
quickly today. A low pressure system from the NW could bring
us a slight chance of showers tomorrow and through the week-end.
Thank goodness the SFARP is having it's Christmas dinner today.
Wear your jackets folks. st. Yesterday's high 72., low 49.
Wednesday Dec 14, 2011 8:00 a.m
Light rains lasted only until noon yesterday in our area. But I have a report that it poured in El Centro all day yesterday, at least through 6:00 p.m. But travelling from Mexicali home, like magic, it was like a wall stopping the rains just below El Major on Hi 5. This morning in San Felipe we still are in the 70's and 40's. The thermometer has now gone down to 58 degrees. Lot's of clouds overhead; and believe it or not we see snow on the mountains.
The waters are calm so our hardy fishermen will be out with heavy jackets, bringing in today's catch. The Las Amigas ladies are bundled up too for their meeting today. Some hotels and restaurants don't provide heat so maybe fur coats are not out of order. st. Yesterday's high 71.4, low 45.9. st.
Tuesday Dec 13, 2011 8:00 a.m We have had light rains off and on from last evening continuing throuth this morning. To look out upon the water it is gloom and doom, heavy with humidity and light but solid cloud cover. However it is surprisingly warm and inviting. The winds are nil and the water is laying calm. Shrimp boats will probably be out in force doing their normal day's toil. It's interesting to see some shoppers carrying umbrellas to town, or wearing light jackets. Patchy fog is possible this evening, so travelling down the highway late at night is not advisable. We expect it to be a little cooler tomorrowfor the Las Amigas luncheon but warming up on Thursday when the San Felipe AARP group will be having their Christmas dinner. There will be many other activities around town.enjoying San Felipe's mild climate. Come and join us. st
Monday Dec 12, 2011 8:00 a.m We're back into the 65 degree weather temperatures this morning but many light clouds dot the otherwise clear skies. We may still expect some rain this evening through Tuesday ahead of the pacific low pressue system off the California coast. Hopefully rain will hold off for today's Virgin de Guadalupe celebrations. Actually, it looks like we'll have cooler weather through the end of the week but hopefully still in the low 60's.Warm sweaters and jackets are all that are necessary yet in beautiful San Felipe.st
8:00 a.m We continue to have clear, crisp air
but it is just above 59 degrees. A Pacific storm is on the
heading East towards Baja. We're looking for a good rain tomorrow
night through Tuesday, This gloomy weather should then move
on across the south-western U.S leaving us cooler than average
temperatures through the rest of the week. All over town there
are small gatherings through the holidays. Sorry the weather
forecasts are not that cheerful. .... st Yesterday's high 73,
overnight low 50
a.m Yesterday's high was only 72, but the night warmed
considerably. We saw an almost complete eclipse of the moon
at 5:15 this morning before it headed over the mountains to
the west. Now the air is so clear and crisp even shadows have
outlines. The RECORD off-road racers should be heading back
to Ensenada today. Breakfast at the Swap Meet and the Casa
de Fe luncheon at Pete's Camp today sound delicious. Fishermen
are doing well; proof are the many wonderful seafood menus
all over town. Optimism is very high this time of year....
st Yesterday's high 72, overnight low 54
picture this morning. It is already 8 degrees warmer than yesterday
morning and we're looking for near normal temperatures for
the week-end, maybe in the high 70's. Light, warm breezes from
the SW is encouraging for the Ensenada-San Felipe RECORD Off-road
race starting today. Closer to home Volunteers for Indigent
and Vulnerable Animals, VIVA, is holding a brunch at Los Arco. Also,
Casa de Fe, is hosting a brunch at Pete's Camp tomorrow. And
calm waters will bring out the fishermen, guaranteeing fresh
seafood for every menu... st Yesterday's high 74, overnight

a.m We have a sunny day, much warmer than yesterday. But
there are heavy, white snowball clouds across much of our otherwise
blue sky. With harly any breeze and almost 60 degrees we can
doff those jackets early. The pangas should be out in full
force gathering lots of shrimp, small, medium and large and
covina fish to sell at the swapmeet and other outlets around
find venders down at the pier for a good price. Today
we should have a great turn-out for the San Felipe AARP (SFARP)
meeting. And many visitors will come for the race starting
Friday. It promises to be nice weather through the week-end...
