Still no rain and nothing brewing on the horizon. Thought the info in today's Eastern Pacific |
Weather Discussion was interesting:
NOTE: EAST PACIFIC TROPICAL ACTIVITY HAS BEEN VERY QUIET WITH NO NAMED STORMS THUS FAR. THIS REPRESENTS THE MOST INACTIVE SEASON TO DATE SINCE 1998 WHEN TROPICAL STORM AGATHA FORMED ON JUNE 11.
MODEST LONG PERIOD SSW SWELL FROM THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE CONTINUES TO PROPAGATE NWD THROUGH THE ENTIRE AREA...WITH A NEW PULSE CURRENTLY APPROACHING THE GALAPAGOS ISLANDS THAT WILL REACH THE CENTRAL AMERICAN COASTLINES SUN MORNING. GLOBAL MODELS ARE DEVELOPING A VERY TIGHT PRESSURE GRADIENT BETWEEN A SRN HEMISPHERE GALE CENTER AND A HIGH TO ITS W AND SW..EFFECTING A RELATIVELY LONG AND SUSTAINED FETCH SUN THROUGH TUE. THIS WILL GENERATE LONG PERIOD...18 SEC SW SWELL THAT WILL AFFECT THE ENTIRE PACIFIC W OF 100W AND N OF 10S. EVENTUALLY LARGE AND POWERFUL SURF SHOULD BE EXPECTED ALL ALONG THE EXPOSED PACIFIC COASTS OF SOUTH AND CENTRAL AMERICA LATE NEXT WEEK.
High surf has been predicted for both South and Central American coasts for the past week but it seems to have reached here a few days ago - the highest surf I've seen in a long time (and what the heck is a "sustained fetch"??)
June has started out with slightly higher temperatures - mid 80's (28-29C) during the day and 70%+ humidity, but windy afternoons have kept it comfortable and more wind is predicted for today - 12 to 21 mph from the west/southwest.
So, Julie and Rusty - we really need rain! When
are you leaving?????
