This satellite image from 7 AM this morning clearly shows the clouds being carried by the upper ridge that is drifting into Canada. Yesterday this ridge was over the northern USA where it has been anchored for many days.

This locked the North Pacific High and Great Basin high in the perfect location for strong Baja winds. Today those winds weaken a bit as the 2 high pressure systems drift northward away from us.
