Saturday, 7 November 7 a.m. This morning we see only a few high clouds overhead hoping this will be a great day for the Shrimp Festival. That weak Pacific Low Pressure system is slowly passing by to our south. More sunshine means warmer temperatures which will follow all next week. Our Saturday Singles Group is going out to dinner this evening and then many will head down to the Malecon to enjoy the Shrimp Festival there.
Dave sent in great photos of the fog bank which travelled in around 8:30 and then out again this morning. Although this fog was heavy it did not hamper driving and lasted only a few hours. We do not know how this fog affected Mainland Mexico yesterday......................More photos here >
Friday, 6 November 7:00 a.m. That Low Pressure system will result in cloudiness across Northern Baja today. An expansive area of cloud cover across the entire peninsula has created a beautiful backdrop for some great sunrise photos. Yesterday, after the fog burned off, the temperature rose. But today the temperatures may drop lower again. However, no rain is expected. Great weather for our Shrimp Festival which starts today. ST (Max 85F; Min 63F; Humidity currently 49%)
A very high fog bank appeared Wednesday afternoon and was even more impressive Thursday morning. It seems to be in the middle of the Sea of Cortez and higher than our flagpole in size. I do not know what is on the other side visible from Puerto Penasco: ...............................................................Photo by Mel Bohnert

Thursday, 5 November 11:00 a.m. The fog has rolled into town and is a sand color in appearance. However the highways still seem clear for driving at this point. Along the beach front it feels a little damp, and of course cool. It is only 73 with 48 humidity. There is no breeze...................................The fog finally burned off about 1:30 and the rest of the day became warm and beautiful, temperatures reaching 85F. ST
7 a.m. Today this fogbank is even more impressive in the morning light. Notice that it appears higher than the flag pole and dark along the horizon. Otherwise we have a clear, warm morning with calm winds and water. If anyone can get a photo of this cloudbank from the Puerto Penasco side, please e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org this morning. ST (Max 82F; Min 62F; Humidity currently 22%)

Wednesday, 4 November 4 p.m. A heavy fogbank has appeared on our horizon hiding our famous Rock Consag, which is about 50 miles out from San Felipe, likewise about 50 miles from Puerto Penasco (they say). At the same time in the other direction Mel spotted some impressive small clouds clustered effectively but producing no rain.
Tuesday, 3 November 7 a.m. Today is All Souls Day. Yesterday and today many families visited the cemetaries, many of the plots decorated in memorial of loved ones passed. It could be an unusually warm afternoon, perfect for such a day. Temperatures will slowly cool through the remainder of the week but not excessively. It will be a perfect week-end for all the events slated on San Felipe's calendar. ST (Max 82F; Min 64F; Humidity currently 24%)
Monday 2 November 7 a.m. PST. The Max temperature reading yesterday was an extreme 20 degrees higher than last Wednesday's reading of 67 F. We expect it to stay well above normal for the next few days and could be into the 90's today. Today is All Saints Day, esecially for the children who have left us. Tonight we have a full moon. We had a low -3 tide at 6:42 a.m this morning and expect an18.4' high tide at 10:7 p.m. tonight. Our blue shrimp season is in full swing. Such a delicacy! We are looking forward to a blowout Shrimp fFestival this week-end. Also looking forward to Desert Mothers Playshop and the Sock Hop Dance, both held locally for education and fun for benefits of the local people. ST (Max 87F; Min 64F; Humidity currently 25%)
A magnitude 3.0 earthwuake struck at 8:15 p.m. Sunday about 11 mi west of Mexicali.
Sunday 1 November 7 a.m. PST On Thursday we had a high of 68 degrees, 20 degrees lower than Wednesday. Today we are heading back to the high 80's. We expect to stay in that range through next week-end's Shrimp Festival in San Felipe. Oh, to return to summer shorts and tee-shirts, but maybe not the swim-wear as the water is getting too cool. Desert trips, Poker races, and sports for all of our toys will be in full swing. Also, there is a lot of enthusiasm for classes in school, out of school, and for seniors during these Fall temperatures. Just check our calendar of events. ST (Max 79F; Min 64F; Humidity currently 26%)
