Is there a good site for weather forecasts in Baja? Heading down tomorrow for 4 days and would like to get an idea what the weather could be like.

I'm in Mazatlan right now taking the 16:00 ferry over to La Paz. If you see a big guy sweating profusely riding a 1200GSA with Washington plates that would be me. I've seen a chance of thunderstorms and afternoon showers in the forecast for southern Baja later in the week.

How long are you going to take coming up out of Baja?
I'll be crossing into Baja in the next day or so, bound for Mazatlan.
If you see yourself Going South, Pull over, I am a big guy 12GSA, Washington Plates.
I'll give you the Road Report...

I've got a max of 10 days to make it back to the border. I'm the big guy riding a 1200GSA with Washington plates. What part of Washington are you from? I'm a card carrying Washougalian from Washougal.

Scott...Please let me know if Mike has pannier stickers and t-shirts available. When I was up there in may Mile told me he would have some available the next time I came to the Sky Ranch. A ride report on how deep the water at the crossing is would be nice to.

Thanks
