Mid-Afternoon Update: If you are reading this and wondering, “what rain?”, I don’t predict it I just relay in the info haha I see it’s raining out in the ocean while standing outside at the marina so I know it is raining somewhere! Frank is maintaining strength and is no longer thought to reach hurricane strength while moving West-North-West at 7mph. end update ~ 2:50pm Cabo Time (no sooner than I hit “update” a black cloud has passed over us and I see a few raindrops on the ground down here at the marina) (3:03pm)
Frank is not to blame for the rain. 🌂 Frank is minding his own business and heading further away from Mexico. The rain is coming from the big clouds approaching from the Sea of Cortez. I’m getting a report from San Jose that it’s sprinkling there already.
Above is the probability for downtown by the marina in Cabo. Please check local listings for the weather station nearest you as there are several connected to wunderground, but sadly not mine. It’s not mounting correctly and until it is wunderground won’t “read” it. Grrrrr
Frank is still a tropical storm 😊
