Baja dodged the bullet on this one. Will get some precip, and avoid the tropical and hurricane strength winds

Airport at San Jose del Cabo looks good still, Todos Santos and 50 miles north moderating as well, but Thursday now looks like slightly higher winds, and very little rain between now and then. Mixed blessings I guess.

As a vicarious stowaway, I'm quite relieved. :)

Nora downgraded to a Tropical Stotm

3. Nora is forecast to move north-northwestward to northwestward
near or over the Gulf of California Tuesday and Wednesday, bringing
a risk of wind impacts to portions of the Mexican states of Baja
California Sur, northern Sinaloa, and Sonora. Given the
above-average uncertainty in the intensity forecast, confidence is
not high enough to determine the magnitude and location of these
potential impacts.

Elias Calles
Cloud cover is getting thicker, The Sierras to our east are completely obscured. Winds have picked up and are more out of the West. Humidity has dropped to 74%, temp is still 87 but it feels much cooler. Liking this so far.

JD how are you checking the airport status?


I posted the WINDY link earlier with a Pin for the airport location. Here it is again

https://www.windy.com/23.060/-109.700?gust,22.483,-109.700,8

[Edited on 8-29-2021 by JDCanuck] I have ridden my motorbike in cross wind gusts right around that intensity and is tiring but not especially bad unless you have a tall rig or motorhome. By your name, do you possibly have a bus you are driving?
My concern was based on possible damage at the airport which might prevent us flying in in a couple weeks. Predictions yesterday around this time were for gusts at twice this speed.

Good to hear. I for one will never forget your 'on the scene' reporting during Juliette. Seems like yesterday. When your connection finally dropped we had our hearts in our throats. Give the familia abrazos from us. :cool:

That was just a forecast. The storm seems to have fallen apart!
