West Coast Wind Blog: by Mike Godsey:  Baja daily human forecast   Questions about the forecast:   Mail me

With a bit of luck Baja’s East Cape had great winds yesterday. Why luck? Because the clouds of the SubTropical Jetstream made a lunge towards us that would have killed the wind if it had happened a few hours earlier.

sWhen I did the forecast the clouds you see in luthe first image did not look likely to reach our area. But as you can see the ended up very close to us. Looking at the velocity scale you see that these clouds at ≈18,000 feet were moving over 60 mph. So a slight shift in their trajectory could change the amount of sun fast. And our local sea breezes hinge on that sunlight.
