Tropical weather season has finally arrived for real. Our hurricane season starts May 15 but here in Todos Santos we usually don’t see real storm threats until August at the earliest. There are of course exceptions, but that is the norm.
What does happen though is way south of us, areas of disturbed tropical nature occur and they do affect our temps and humidity. On Sunday past, the weather was a bit warmer and muggier than it had been. Saturday night didn’t get as cool as Friday night. A quick check on the web and lo and behold, INVEST 91, a tropical area of disturbed weather that could possibly become a depression. Ah that’s why it warmed up.
Monday the trend continued. Nights were 6-7 F warmer. Days a bit muggy. Ugh. Too soon for summer heat. The INVEST 91 was still there.
This morning, Tuesday, the INVEST 91 had become a tropical depression. It was definitely warmer this morning, 77 F in my house compared to 70 F a few days before.

With any luck at all, temps and humidity will return to normal once this storm fades. However, the changes from the next storm could stay, i.e. warmer temps and higher humidity. That’s the way it works here, we get discrete jumps of 5 F that stick. Happens 2-3 times and then WHAM! Summer is here.
So enjoy the beautifully cool weather while we have it. It is certain not to last.
