The cold front that has made it's way down from Arizona and into Sonora has slowed dramatically in the last several hours. The strong N to NE winds all night, gave way to more westerlies and southerlies in our area. That means air that has been over the ocean and is MUCH warmer.


San Carlos generally remained around 60F until midnight. Then a gradual cooling to about 57 lasted until 0330. From there, a more dramatic descent occurred to as low 52, which is where it is at 0700. There was a brief, 3 degree rise at around 0500, when the SW wind shielded us a bit more. But it appears to be breaking down, in the face of the cold advance.


What have we missed? There are scattered weather stations in Hermosillo reporting temps from 39-42F.


North of that, in terrain that is admittedly more elevated, there are stations reporting upper 20s and low 30s along 15-D. There is a PWS west of Santa Ana that is showing 23. Maybe it's a cold sink, but I would suspect an uncalibrated gauge. Nogales is mid 20s, as is Tucson. 


The dry, cold front will probably arrive later this AM, but the sun will be up to mitigate the effects.


Tomorrow morning figures to be our coldest morning of the year, so far. We could possibly see upper 30s in the inland strip.

Happy New Year!!

Windy and cold in SoCal for the last 3 days.

Pretty much whatever happens in SoCal, hits San Carlos 1 to 2 days later.

Snowbelt people, with thicker skin than us, Bill.


I actually like to wear the clothes that I never get to wear down here, because it's usually so warm.

Yeah, did you see the color of that "fog" in the AM? Gross. 


I think the typical land/east wind blew from 4am to around 8am and brought all of Guaymas's smog out over the ocean and then a moist SW wind brought it on shore in the form of fog, after 8am. Never seen a fog that color.

Just read on OP Son that the black component to the smoke/fog was due to agricultural land owners burning TIRES in their fields to prevent freezing.

We are fortunate AGAIN that the cold front arrived at dawn.

Today should be the coldest day of the season so far and tomorrow morning's lows are almost certain to touch the upper 30s.
