Tropical Storm Blanca Finally Named

If anyone checked visible satellite loops yesterday over the eastern Pacific you know that Blanca has been spinning away very impressively for at least 24 hours. Guess it escaped official detection because of the Holiday weekend. Looks like it will track too far to west to initiate a surge up the Gulf of California. Latest IR image above (on blog).

So we’ll continue to watch, after two very suppressed days here locally, for some feature to push the subtropical, low-level moisture back north. Looks mostly hot – the 0.77” we got here at house has been quickly sucked back into the atmosphere, and I’ll have to be watering the plants again this afternoon.
