Bahia Asuncion winter weather


What are the general wind conditions like at B.A. for the months of Jan/Feb?Looking to hear from Nomads that spend winter time there, (as well as the folks that live and have businesses there) Been there once in early Nov 2015 for a few days and liked the vibe. Gotta escape the Oregon coast rain this winter.

I live there and the weather during those months is pretty much cookie cutter. Flat calm or just a slight offshore wind in the early morning that totally lays down a couple hours after sunrise. Some time between 11 am and 2 pm the NNW wind will pick up usually between 10 and 18 MPH. March through June the water really cools down and the winds pick up earlier and stronger. Zero chance of rain or storms during that period.

If the reporting station at Punta Abreojos is any indication, it's mostly light winds with highs in the 60s and lows in the mid-upper 50s. Water is probably mid 60s . All temps Fahrenheit, of course.

Sounds real nice and reliable.. Hoping to find a flat pad and palapa vibe close to the beach for my Toyota T100 and tent trailer. Maybe 2 weeks .

I agree except you can get some nasty north winds when there are big storms in San Diego. Otherwise, it's really nice that time of year.

If you don't like the wind in vizcaino/central baja, wait 4 hours and it will be totally different.

Yes, it blows in central baja in winter :biggrin:

I think the campground is called La Sirena (sp?) The shower/reading room also has WIFI, get the password when you check in.

It is located near the Pemex station on the same side of the street.

Asuncion is a great town....and the coastline is spectacular in both directions....and last winter we had two significant rainstorms in January....so it isn't Shangrila every day....but close enough for mortals.



Don't believe everything you think....

It blows about 15mph from about 10-11 until just about dark every day during that timeframe. Then it settles down for the night. Most days it's too rough to go out in a boat. The weather is much gentler on the Cortez during those months. I have a house there.

Skipjack: What I am hearing in general is normal Pacific PM onshore flow down there in Asuncion. Sounds just fine. Anything like that will be a warm welcome from the Oregon coast mid winter. Had 15 major storms accompanied by variable 30/40 mph winds between the months of 9/16 4/17 Brookings, Crescent City. Am expecting similar this year.
AK: Stayed at Sirena Nov/2015 and loved the bath/library facility. Unfortunately, I got bit up by fleas there. Moved out half way between town and Roque, a little north of the racetrack.

"They" say that it will be a similar winter in the Pac NW. Of course, "they" didn't predict last winter, as I ever read.

The incredible winter of 2016-17 made it to a lot of places in Mexico. In San Carlos Sonora, it was the rainiest winter in the nine years I have lived there. But it was still a very minor amount.

My point is, that winter was something of an anomaly. Many areas of the Pac NW saw rain/snow amounts that they hadn't seen in 50 years. Some of that managed to get down to Asuncion. Probably very rare, really.

It sounds like you've got a pretty good grasp of it - it certainly varies, but general patterns are sunny mornings from sunrise to 11am/noon, followed by moderate to strong winds that limit boating/beach activities until just before sunset.

You get a few rain clouds and foggy mornings here and there, and the occasional good storm (as Ged mentioned). Things tend get windier and less pleasant as you get into March/April.

The other thing to be aware of is the broad range in temperature - it can be nearly 80 during the day and then dip to the low 40s at night. So make room for some sweaters and blankets under all the fishing gear.

I have never seen the temps drop below 50-55 at Asuncion. Inland - yes. At Catavina the temps get real low at night in winter but Asuncion is buffered by the sea which prevents highs and lows.

My experience over 10 years is that October thru February are mostly picture perfect with some westerlies in the afternoon. March the change starts and the winds and dampness start to pick up. That being said weather is never a sure thing even in paradise and I have been in terrible sand storms in February there.
