San Felipe Weather updated periodically.

Weather for Friday Nov 18

8:00 a.m.

That beautiful sun belies the fact that the sky is beginning to show streaks of clouds, possibly preparing for the coming weather system from the Pacific NW. However, closer to home are the clouds of dust seen off to our west whenever a racer is streaking by on his way south in the Baja 1000. One would think the threatening weather is holding off just for this event. Not until late Sunday night will we have anything at all to fear. By that time they will have announced a winner. This is a holiday week-end for Mexico; Dia de Revolution.They plan to have their big parade on Sunday and hold the actual holiday on Monday: meaning the banks & businesses will be closed on Monday. Enjoy!

Weather for Thursday Nov 17

8:00 a.m. 

It's actually so bright out there this morning it hurts the eyes. Clear, clear skies with absolutely no breeze this minute causes us to step back behind the drapes at first. Instantly you are drawn back outside to see if it is warm, and yes, it is in the 70's.  Enjoy it, because on Sunday it may drop about 10 degrees for the next couple of days. I think many are looking forward to getting out there at the check points to see the races which actually start today in Encinata. By Sunday the contestants will all be back home and no-one will mind the temperature drop..….st Yesterday's high 75, overnight low 63.

Weather for Wednesday Nov 16

8:00 a.m.

It's very humid out there this morning, but clear skies and warm sun should dry things out a bit. This will bring warmer temperatures Friday, cooling 5 degrees more by Saturday. Let's hope things remain calm through Sunday when another pacific low pressure system is expected to move into SE California. This does not necessarily mean rain as far down as Ensenada. We'll have to wait and see.  This morning there is an SFARP meeting at the lodge with speakers from the area. Maybe we'll get more information regarding the Baja 1000 which is expected to come through the desert area Friday and Saturday.….st Yesterday's high 72, overnight low 60.

Weather for Tuesday Nov 15

8:00 a.m.

We still see some clouds over the horizon to our east but basically it is clear and cool and a little damp.It promises to warm up to maybe 75 and continue on this path until Friday. But watch out! On Saturday it will cool down again preparing for yet another pacific storm heading our way for Sunday and Monday. This is not good news for our Baja 1000 racers who start in Ensenada on a beautiful Thursday but will still be on the trail through Saturday when it will cloud down ….st Yesterday's high 75, overnight low 58.

Weather for Monday Nov 14

8:00 a.m.

Mostly clear skies and warm winds greet us this day I was not prepared for showers last night but we see that the ground was damp this morning. However it cleared during the night. There are very few clouds in the sky, and what a beautiful sunrise. There is not a whisper of a breeze and the humidity is heavy with moisture as this Pacific low passes across our northern border and Arizona. We can expect beautiful weather for the Baja 1000 on Thursday and Friday but then partly cloudy again on Saturday.….st Yesterday's high 74, overnight low 58.

Weather for Sunday Nov 13

8:00 a.m.

While all the rest of northern Mexico is still facing rain, we in San Felipe are drying out. Today should warm quickly to about 75°F degrees. It was interesting to see the water temperatures at Puerto Penasco at 75°F but on this side of the Sea it was only 60°F. Great fishing weather is coaxing many pangas out for Shrimp and Fish. In fact some private pangas are taking out passengers and catching their limits within the morning.  And in town we hear many conversations of "What checkpoint are you going to be at for the Baja 1000 on Nov 17-20, which starts and ends in Ensenada?  Weather forecasts point to favorable conditions and dry sands. There is a detailed diagram of Physical Full Stop checkpoints along the way on  the Tecate-Score Baja 1000 site. Don't forget the SFARP meeting at the Lodge on Wednesday, the 16th….st Yesterday's high 75, overnight low 58.   

Weather for Saturday Nov 12

9:00 a.m.

It is completely cloud covered out there; not yet raining in our area, but we do expect it this weekend. All indicators point to some moisture through Sunday evening, though very light. We will still see temperatures in the 70's with little or no winds. It is not recommended to take the San Felipe-Ensenada road for fear of flash-floods which could become dangerous in minutes. And following all this is the prognosis of warming weather each day forward to Wednesday when they project temperatures of almost 80 degrees. Enjoy the warm rain folks! …ST.Yesterday's High:74°F, Overnight Low:57°F. …ST.Yesterday's High:75°F, Overnight Low:6°F 

What a view to wake up to.  As the minutes fly by the whole sky turns red, then all disappears to become a normal overcast but non-windy day in San Felipe………………………………………….  Photos by Mel Bohnert.

The San Andreas fault system is more than 1300 km (800 miles) long, and in some spots, is as much as 16 km (10 miles) deep.

Weather for Friday Nov 11

What a cloudy day for any Veterans Memorial events. It is completely overcast but with no winds.  Everything is still.  And the outlook is not good for the week-end.  This coming low pressure system could possibly bring some light moisture into our area; not good for theVIVA Hoedown being held this afternoon. It is their first since the 2 previous Animal Rescue groups joined forces to keep the dog & cat population down in San Felipe. However the temperatures will still remain in the 70's with a low in the 50's. Next week looks much more promising …ST.Yesterday's High:75°F, Overnight Low:56°F
