Strong wind gusts from the mtn side/east are just arriving. I have opened and secured front gates so the storm can't damage hinges or more. Last few hours we have had variable amounts of rain. Power still on. It is cooler which is welcome esp if power fails. Time is 2:30pm. My big, brave Labrador is a little nervous? Stay safe. Tio

I don't remember what storm did what and when, with one exception - Odile. This one really stands out. The damages were well above 2 centavos.

The projected path of Odile was that it would only touch Cabo, and then follow the Pacific coast. Instead, it went right up the spine.

Alm, Please understand that I was not referring to any storm with my 2 centavos remark. If you look at the previous page it was referenced to a post and the value of my opinion. Which I may have over priced.
Stay safe... everyone.
4:30 pm. Average 10 min. wind speed 24mph and gust to 30mph. Mostly clear skies North, West & East starting to cloud up a little South. It's been blowing hard all day.

View towards Mulege

Odile ate the infrastructure of roads with it's rain totals. Harvey is doing that dance in Texas. Good luck to Baja with this storm.

Additional strengthening is possible this evening before the center
moves over the Baja California peninsula, and while the chance
of Lidia becoming a hurricane is low it is still non-zero.
Weakening is expected after 12 h due to the center moving up the
spine of the Baja California peninsula, but tropical-storm-force
winds are likely to spread up the Gulf of California well east of
the center. Lidia is forecast to become a remnant low by 72 h
due to interaction with land and cold water, and further weakening
is anticipated over the cold waters west of the northern Baja
California peninsula at 96 and 102 h.

Lidia is a large system accompanied by very heavy rains which are
already occurring over portions of western Mexico and Baja
California Sur. Regardless of how strong Lidia becomes,
life-threatening flash floods and mudslides will be a significant
hazard over these areas. In addition, the mountainous terrain of
the Baja California peninsula could enhance the winds at higher
elevations.

Thanks for the updates, especially my Punta Chivato neighbors. Hopefully the road will be passible early October.

What Lidia ("The Tattoo'ed Lady???) doesn't pack in winds she does pack in moisture and size. DO NOT underestimate this storm; damage will come from flooding, and probably lots of it. What falls high must come down, especially for 'baseball mitt' basins like the Sierras above Mulege. That will be the greatest cause of problems. Me heart is out for all of Baja... looks like she'll go almost all the way to Ensenada. Buena Suerte, Bajanistas. Stay put and stay dry, and stay out of vados.

WOW. Just now ran the windyty loop for the peninsula. Impressive to watch; the colors dictate the strongest winds, etc... this will be a very strong storm considering the smaller magnitude of the 'hurricane' scale. East side and warmer waters of the SOC are all in play. The 'eye' is right now at the tip of SW Baja, and the path looks quite ominous if you run the loop. I suggest all involved look it up and tune in.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

If it don't stink, don't stir it....

and if it ain't disgusting, it ain't discussed.

Windity settings


On the right side of the Windity display, there are settings to show rain, or waves instead of wind. Run the loop again set for rain to get a different perspective.

It doesn't look like it will drop what Odile did, but I am sure there will be damage!

Punta Chivato 7PM update


Sorry my weather station says AM 12 hours behind. The surf has doubled in size now and some high clouds are coming in.




Any reports from down South?

Have been running that rain loop since yesterday :). It's only gotten worse since then - more rain totals. Doesn't look as bad as the Odile, still a lot of rain.

Good Morning
Just getting light now and will have a photo soon. I just found a site with weather stations you can search and find some in areas of interest.
http://eebmike.com/sta.html
The Punta Chivato site is not me but is very close to the readings I'm getting. Wind was at 0 for about 20min. Now just picking up again. Waiting for Photo Bucket to upload pics. It cloudy and just noticed Mulege is not visible so they're getting rained on. More soon...
7:30 raining lightly now here.
