This is the time of year in northern Baja that we can get a lot of rain from hurricanes and tropical storms in the Pacific. This weekend we have a large tropical depression that is located just to the west of the tip of the Baja peninsular. It has a 70% chance of becoming a tropical cyclone in the next 24 hours and moving north to inundate all of the peninsular, northwest Mexico and the southwest USA with heavy rain.
The current forecast for the San Felipe region shown above indicates a 50% probability of rain and thunderstorms starting tonight, increasing to 100% probability on Monday and a 20% probability on Tuesday. Total rainfall is predicted to be around 3 inches! This will be the most rainfall that we have seen in several years. Clean out your storm drains and remove garbage from the road that will block drainage.
