Well, she was one strong hurricane for a while there but the cooler water and wind shears cut Dora down quickly. She’s now a tropical storm and passing south west of Todos Santos. We didn’t get any measurable rain from her, but other areas within 60 miles of here did, so at least the aquifers are refilling.
Right now, 3 pm Todos Santos time, the winds are brisk from the southwest. The whitecaps in the ocean are also from the same direction. The air is hot and the winds are 20-30 mph. It doesn’t feel as humid today as it has the last 3 days but the temps are up.
Maybe we will have a surprise and get some rain yet but it doesn’t look promising at all.
As a footnote, I tried something new with the hurricane graphic posts. I linked directly to Weather Underground instead of capturing the graphic and reposting it. This means as they change the graphic it will also change here – eventually the previous Dora posts will reflect the last graphics posted from Weather Underground. Not sure if I will continue to post graphics this way or not. Comments appreciated.
