San Felipe - Archive of weather for January 2011.


Monday, 1/31/11, 8:00 a.m.  Hooray! The breeze has shifted back to the south; always good news for we who like the warmth. However, you can see the forecast is not that good for the week. Get your warm jackets out folks as it's expected to dip pretty low for the next few days. I still doubt very much if we would get any rain or a freeze. .By Thursday or Friday it is supposed to warm somewhat in time for our busy week-end:.. ....ST (yesterday's Max64; Min 44F).


Sunday, 1/30/11, 8:00 a.m.  Looks like we are going to get our share of cold weather next week. I doubt very much if we would get into rain or a freeze. That fog bank yesterday morning did spread across the waters reaching for our beaches but cleared as the day wound down. This morning the fog is again laying across the water to Puerte Penasca and may again spread to our side. At this moment we have quiet winds and water and we are still able to be outside with only a sweater.. ....ST (yesterday's Max69; Min 47F).

Saturday, 1/29/11, 8:00 a.m.  The forecast has changed a little. Today we have a SW breeze, always warmer.  We can expect cooler weather for most of next week. However, high 60's and 70's are great compared to the rest of the country. Once again a fog bank is visible on the mainland across the Sea but clear skies are the picture for the rest of us.  Last night the stars seemed so bright and close, even better if you stayed out of the city lights. The gray whales are beginning to arrive in Baja.  Many of the tourists are taking advantage of vacationing on the Pacific coast in February and early March to catch a glimpse of nature this close. Others have headed up to Quartsite, just across the border. I want to stay and see the Flamenco Festival and it's 40 dancers on Feb 5, right here in San Felipe.. ....ST (yesterday's Max74; Min 51F) .

Friday, 1/28/11, 8:00 a.m.  Continuing good weather statistics are expected thru tomorrow, but look for high clouds and cooler temperatures Saturday thru Monday. No matter! It will not be that much cooler. They promise warm readings after Tuesday. We drove to Yuma yesterday with great weather for travelling all the way. Can't say as much for the trip. Just before Yuri Muri they are working on the highway and we had to endure a terrible bypass mud road for 5 miles. They are now taking up to 1/2 hour for a thorough searth at the local checkpoint both incoming and outgoing from San Felipe. Add that to the hour stop going across the border and it all becomes an extensive trip (timewise). Surprisingly they did not check at all coming back into Algadones. Sorry; this does not have to do with the weather which was daylight when we left before 5 a.m. and  still light through 6:30 p.m . ....ST (yesterday's Max71; Min 54F .


Thursday, 1/27/11, 8:00 a.m.  Almost identically the same as yesterday.  Wednesday we had 2 or 3 windy periods and being from the north these were on the cool side. Clear skies and calm waters remain, At 2:30 we have only a 3' tide, the lowest for the day. It's great fishing weather.  If the waters were warmer this would be ideal. However, I would look to the desert for my outings for the day. ....ST (yesterday's Max71; Min 54F)

Wednesday, 1/26/11, 8:00 a.m.  Although a mite cooler this morning we look again for a normal winter's day in San Felipe. Clear skies, soft northern breezes and quiet waters are with us already today. With nothing specific on the calendar, it will just be quiet days, formally, through the end of January. Of course there are many social and group events, and it's a great time for a gathering together of the locals and the snowbirds. Take advantage of the forecast for 65-70 degree weather.  Plan a BBQ this week-end.   ....ST (yesterday's Max66; Min 51F).


Tuesday, 1/25/11, 8:00 a.m.  Thank goodness our readings are getting back to normal. We can undoubtedly look for 70 F+  today. There are soft clouds drifting lazily across the otherwise blue expanse over deeper blue waters, this morning lapping calmly in low tides. Cool northern breezes keep the flag fluttering steadily, not gusty as in the past few days. However we can expect gusty winds off and on later this week. Over all, they are forcasting warm weather through the week-end. We notice that the earthquake readings have been more often, but not above the 3.0 category as on last Saturday. We're keeping a close eye on them. Check our home page and Kat's Korner for the forthcoming activity events listed today.     ....ST (yesterday's Max69; Min 54F) .


Monday, 1/24/11, 8:00 a.m. Wow! Our readings have dropped to a low of 48 degrees during the night, the humidity dropping to 10%. In San Felipe this is low folks. But no wind tore at us during this period. It has dropped completely. Undoubtedly the cold north wind made it so miserable yesterday, but no breezes expected today.  The sun may be able to bring the thermometer readings back up to normal, meaning low 70's.  Nevertheless, I shall work inside today as there is nothing major on the calendar through the end of the month.    ....ST (yesterday's Max71; Min 48F) .


Sunday, 1/23/11, 8:00 a.m. I was awakened during the night with the winds tearing at the limbs of our huge tree, surely tugging as strong as they are right now, 16 mph on our wind measurer. And cold, yes, because it is coming straight out of the north. The water is showing only tiny whitecaps, but these may become stronger throughout the day. Clear skies remain, which may allow the sun to warm us up some, if you are directly in the rays. Nothing major on the calendar this morning, so I think we'll join up with some of our friends for an indoor dinner this evening. ......ST (yesterday's Max71; Min 51F)


Saturday, 1/22/11, 8:00 a.m.  Cold enough to wear two layer of sweaters this morning, now about 10 degrees above the lowest temperature during the night. The flag is limp in the absence of the northern breeze as is the water at low tide. No matter, the sun is brilliant, casting shadows everywhere. Yesterday after bathing our Llazo Apso dog which has such long hair, he comfortably dried in the warm rays of the sun. We expect it to warm up quickly again today and through the weekend.. Let's start with a stroll through San Felipe's Swap Meet this morning......ST (yesterday's Max68; Min 53F)


Friday, 1/21/11, 8:00 a.m.  Those breezy northern winds have taken us back into winter, San Felipe style. We are back into the 75F temperatures, down into the low 50's at night. No matter: the water is slipping quietly along the beach which is in low tide right now. The week-end is upon us and it seems everyone has chosen their favorite event. There is no lack of dining out or entertainment including back-yard BBQ's and private beach parties. One may choose to attend more than one in an evening. It looks like it will stay in the mid-70's througout the weekend. ......ST (yesterday's Max68; Min 54F)


       Full moon 7 p.m.begging for a picture
Thursday, 1/20/11, 8:00 a.m. While eating dinner last evening we caught this perfect shot of our beautiful full moon. You just can't get better than this. Thursday morning it is back into the high 60's with that cool northern breeze kicking up whitecaps on the water. We expect this to stay with us through the week-end with highs in the low 70's. ......ST (yesterday's Max80; Min 57F)





We caught the sun rising above the water causing this beautiful reflection


Wednesday, 1/19/11, 8:00 a.m.  We can't brag enough about the early spring weather we are having. Everyone is out on the water, in the deserts, or preparing a BBQ at home. We can expect more of the same today. Cooler and breezier weather is expected Thursday. ......ST (yesterday's Max80; Min 57F)


Tuesday, 1/18/11, 8:00 a.m.  The trick is to rise with the birds early in the morning. It is surprising what a different world you are in. Like today, we have mostly clear skies with just this soft jet stream begging to be noticed. This also creates an entirely different pallet of colors on the water. The breeze is temperarily from the SE but will undoubtedly swing back to the north.Today it is supposed to get into the 80's in Yuma, but here we have the soft breezes off of the water modifying the temperatures slightly. What a great day for the Rotary's "Taste of San Felipe" event. We hope to see you there . ......ST (yesterday's Max78; Min 59F)


Roc Consag


Monday, 1/17/11, 8:00 a.m.  Aren't we lucky to have such a beautiful morning to start the new week?  Basically it is the same today and maybe tormorrow as it was yesterday. Although winds are still from the north they are also warm from the west. Soft clouds streak across the clear, sunny skies and baby blue waters shimmer across the Sea. If you look closely you can see Rock Consag about 25 miles out there. It just couldn't get any better than this: in January, mind you. It promises to stay this way through most of the week. It will be an excellent day for the Rotary's Taste of San Felipe tomorrow. . ......ST (yesterday's Max 75; Min 60F)

Sunday, 1/16/11, 8:00 a.m.  Who wants to stay inside to watch football today when it is high in the 70's and maybe reaching the 80's?. With soft clouds above us and a warm, soft breeze from the west fanning the water, the temperatures will reach their peak. Our new neighbour couldn't have picked a better day to arrive in town. With the Arts and Crafts/Fashion Show today and the Taste of San Felipe on Tuesday there is plenty of activity. Optimisim is everywhere.. ......ST (yesterday's75; Min 60F)


Saturday, 1/15/11, 8:00 a.m. Carumba! The thermometer finally reached over 75 F yesterday. We noticed the night was much warmer leading into a terrrific week-end as promised. Brilliantly clear skies make the water seem a deep blue to the eye. We do have a soft, northern breeze preventing it from becoming as warm as we would hope. Yesterday the winds got strong enough to whip up the waves along the shore, the frollicking type for doggies. We are looking forward to a night out with the SF Saturday Singles, when we can actually dress down for the occasion, not in coats and jackets. And many will dress up for the Arts and Crafts Show at Rumors on Sunday. We love the tropical weather. . ......ST (yesterday's Max77F; Min 61F)


Friday, 1/14/11, 8:00 a.m. Why did it dip down into the cold last night? No matter, we are getting into the last few hours of  windy weather today and tonight. With high pressure the warmer weather is promised into the week-end and indeed into next week. They have been promising temperatures into the 70's for days but it has not reached past 67 here. High pressure should continue to bring well above average temperatures for mid January through next week. Great news for the Arts and Crafts Show at Rumors on Sunday. Even greater news for the Taste of San Felipe affair by the Rotary next Tuesday. . ......ST (yesterday's Max66F; Min 53F)

Thursday, 1/13/11, 8:00 a.m. We are basking in sunshine here in San Felipe. It did not reach the 70's but today it may. It is easy to rise 12 degrees in direct sunshine. A soft breeze fans the tree tops. If only it were not from the north. We see our friends out riding their bykes and conversing with their neighbors in warm shorts, mind you. This afternoon we are looking forward to the Las Amigas Fashion show, always original with local talent.and humor. . ......ST (yesterday's Max65F); Min 54F)
Brilliant sun casts shadows on the dogs
Wednesday, 1/12/11, 8:00 a.m. Today we may see the temperatures rise, above normal, into the 70's. Already the dogs are basking in the warm sun. There is not a cloud to be seen, nor any wind to speak of. Yesterday we noticed the water was churned up, almost to a mud color. But today it has started out so peaceful and clear and beautiful. Utopia is expected to last into the middle of next week. I feel for those who are still shovelling sidewalks in the rest of the world. . ......ST (yesterday's Max66F; Min 52F)


Tuesday, 1/11/11, 8:00 a.m. Soft, north winds drift from the north. With a cloudless sky the sun is out in full force. Already the dogs are lazing in it's warmth and I shall definitely find a chore outside to see if I too, can get a bit of vitamin C. We are seeing a few more gringos arriving now that the holidays are behind us. Excellent weather is on hand to welcome them. On Thursday we are looking forward to the Las Amigas Fashion show, always original with local talent. Knowing that the profits help to build up their Student Grants program everybody turns out to help make each year the best ever. . ......ST (yesterday's Max61F; Min 45F)

Monday, 10 Jan 2011, 8:00 a.m. It's the beginning of a new week. We have the cold winds from the north to contend with once again. Heavy clouds lie off to the East but plenty of sunshine spreads over San Felipe itself. Expect clouds and overcast  through Tuesday but warming temperature overall. I had reason to put my hands in the Sea water the other day and found it to be surprisingly warm. It's the frigid winds you get when you come out of a swim that is shocking. Many fishermen wear wet suits for the warmth. On the other hand some Canadians live in shorts all winter. It sure beats the weather they left up home. . . . . ......ST (yesterday's Max62F; Min 47F)


Sunday, 9 Jan 2011, 8:00 a.m. The winds have swung back to the north which are always cold.  However yesterday's readings with SW winds were encouraging. Clear skies in our areas allow the sun for much of the day. One person actually got a little sunburn yesterday working on the roof.  The fishermen also stay covered to prevent direct sunburn. Maybe it's a good day to take the buggies out into the desert to gather many of the fossles, limestones and azure rocks as well as enjoying the first touch of Spring fauna that is just now pushing up their heads.  Do you know we have birds laying the first round of eggs and dutifully tending them daily? . . . . ......ST (yesterday's Max67F; Min 49F)


Saturday, 8 Jan 2011, 8:00 a.m. The sky is clear and the winds and water are calm. When the temperature hits the 60's we are happy. And it looks like it is going to be warm for the next week. It is a great time to come to San Felipe for a winter holiday. The town is not bustling with people like we had hoped, although that has an advantage. We are enjoying the chance to re-organize after the Christmas and New Years holidays and there is a positive attitude as we go forward with our new Mayor of Mexicalli and his appointed Delegado here in San Felipe. . . . . ......ST (yesterday's Max65F; Min 52F)


Friday, 7 Jan 2011, 8:00 a.m. With little or no clouds, today has started out a little warmer by just a few degrees. Most of the moisture remains north of the border. While writing this report the thermometer has gone up to 60F already and we are dry. Winds and water are completely calm. It's going to be a great day.. . . . ......ST (yesterday's Max63F; Min 45F)


Thursday, 6 Jan 2011, 8:00 a.m. Dia de Reyes, Day of Kings. It's just a tad bit warmer this morning with a beautiful cloud cover. This is not to say it is overcast. Instead this beautiful sunruse will disappear in a matter of minutes. Although still in the 50's if you are sheltered from the north breezes the warmth will win. We expect it to stay cool at least a few more days. . . . ......ST (yesterday'sMax61F; Min 47F)


Clouds make for beautiful sunrises.
Wednesday, 5 Jan   2011, 8:00 a.m. A light cloud covers the entire area this morning although the sun is trying vainly to cut through. A soft, chilly breese encourages one to huddle closer to the heat. Some hardy souls along the road have built a tiny fire while waiting for others to come and share their ride for the day. We do not expect it to warm up at least till tomorrow. . . ......ST (yesterday's Max59F; Min 47F)
Tuesday, 4 Jan 2011, 8:00 a.m. Although still cold, clear and beautiful out there, it seems to have turned the corner, at least for a few days. Some of my friends were sitting around in shorts yesterday sheltered from the wind and enjoying a warm sun. However winds have returned to the north. Any signs of clouds usually disappear by noon. We expect to see a fresh run on shrimp to fill up the larders from the popular holiday runs so the fishermen should be kept busy. As for the full calendar this week we have the San Felipe ARP meeting Wednesday and the The Las Amigas Discover Baja Nature Walk Friday and Saturday. The public is invited. . ......ST (yesterday's Max58F; Min 44F)
Monday, 3 Jan 2011, 8:00 a.m. The first working day of a new decade. We have a tentative promise of warmer weather by mid-week. South winds and calm waters are pretty good indicators of a great start. Most of the working class will be back on the job and the rest will be trying to figure out new ways to restructure the same old projects. The Las Amigas Discover Baja Nature Walk should have a good week for their project which is something new on our calendar. ......ST (yesterday's Max56F; Min 40F).

Sunday, 2 Jan 2011, 8:00 a.m. It's getting hard to keep up a good front. I promise myself I shall definitely drag out my fur coat ifit goes any lower. They have promised a slow warming trend to start today, but they didn't say how long it may last. So it will remain a clear, cold, but calm Sunday, a good day to stay in and watch football. ......ST (yesterday's Max57F; Min 40F).

New Year's Day 1/1/11
Saturday, 1 Jan 2011, 8:00 a.m. I haven't seen it so cold for years. However, we cannot complain. 57F is still springtime weather in most of the U.S. If it wasn't for that cold north wind, we could celebrate the New Year exhuberently. We had a great camp party last evening, warming up the lodge room with a hot fire in the fireplace, something we haven't used for two years. This morning it is beautifully clear, crisp and cold. But if it gets close to the 60's we will probably BBQ supper outside, however maybe not eating on the patio. Somewhat milder, dry air will return by tomorrow, yet still below normal. I think our guests must have brought this freeze from their homes. Happy New Year everyone. ......ST (yesterday's Max57F; Min 40F).
