TROPICAL STORM EMILIA REPORT
July 26, 2006, Torrance Eddy, Buena Vista, East Cape, Mexico, report on tropical storm Emilia:
On Sunday, I left early for San Jose del Cabo in the morning and the weather was bright, sunny, and nice. I returned to East Cape at about 11 a.m. and it was still sunny with a few clouds and nothing more than a light breeze. By noon, it was cloudy. By 1 p.m. the wind came up enough to produce whitecaps. By 2 or 3 p.m. the wind was gusting to 30 or 40 m.p.h. with an occasional large rain drop. At about 8 p.m., it started raining and rained between 2 and 4 inches here along with high winds. Absolutely no lightning.
Monday's East Cape weather prediction was for dubious weather for the area but the boats went out anyway. A full contingent of boats left an hour later than usual. I didn't see them come in. Yesterday, Emilia didn't let anybody out.
Today, Wednesday, only a very few boats, private or private charters, have gone out which is consistent with the weather forecasts and the most recent satellite photos which put us less than 200 miles from Emilia's eye.
