30-Day Weather Outlook for May 31, 2017, to June 30, 2017

  • Jun 01, 2017

Summary- The basic pattern consists of periods of active westerlies, and troughing near and west of N Calif and the Great Basin. A pool of unusually cold water remains W of Calif, and colder than normal sea surface is near and south of southern Baja Calif. The area of cold sea surface temperatures near southern Baja includes most of the region in which tropical cyclones form off the SW coast of Mexico.
