San Carlos Weather, News & Marketplace

Weather-wise by PJ Schramel, your Weather Wonk

Latest onslaught of western winter storms may reach San Carlos

Before we dive headlong into this week’s weather, it is worth noting that the wind predictions for the Dink ‘n Sea tournament turned out to be pretty accurate, at face value. In other words, Zone 3 winds mostly followed the predicted wind speeds for San Carlos proper. In my experience, this usually occurs when winds come from the NNW to NE direction. The impressive montañas NE of Zone 3 tend to mitigate winds from those directions. It’s the WNW winds (our most common winter winds) that will generate Zone 3 winds in excess of winds in San Carlos proper.

This week’s weather can’t be discussed without a mention of the incredible situation in California involving the Oroville Dam. The Feather River drainage above the dam has received the highest amounts of rain, as of February 10th, that it has ever received by that date. How much more? Nearly 12 in./30 cm. more. And another 7-9 in./ 18-23 cm. are expected by next week. This follows five years of continuous drought. When it rains, it pours, indeed. All of this has combined to cause significant damage to the dam’s spillways, as well as causing the evacuation of nearly 200,000 residents in the flood zone. Stop me if you’ve heard this before but, mamma mia, that’s a lotta cots in emergency shelters! Stay tuned to this one!!

Fortunately for the Oroville area, an intermediate storm will miss them and collide with southern California and parts south. Unfortunately, WE are parts south, amigos. It’s looking very likely that we may get a “major” winter storm; possibly the largest, in terms of rainfall and wind, that we have seen in a few years (remember, our recent winters have been pretty mild). The likeliest time periods are Saturday morning through Sunday afternoon. Pink raincoats and galoshes for the Caminata por La Vida this Sunday? It’s possible, but it won’t dampen the spirits of the caminantes.

Wednesday: clouds continue, as a result of the tail end of a northern front. Very slight chance of moisture. Light-moderate winds. High: 24/75. Low: 15/59.

Thursday: clear, but noticeably cooler. Light winds. High: 21.5/71. Low: 15/59.

Friday: some clouds drawn up from the south as the low pressure system approaches us from the north. Solidly moderate S winds (9-19 knots). Still cool. High: 21/70. Low: 15.5/60.

Saturday/Sunday: not a pleasant 48 hours. Rainfall amounts could reach 4cm./1.5in. and the wind will be rippin’, (30 knots possible??) especially on Saturday. Less rain and wind on Sunday. But cool and cloudy both days. Highs: 18/65. Lows: 13/55.

Monday: clear skies return, but still not warm. Some moderate winds. High: 20/68. Low: 14.5/58.

Tuesday: weak high pressure north of us brings warmer temps and moderate W-WNW winds. High: 24/76. Low: 14.5/58.

And, finally, congratulations to all the organizers and contestants of this past week’s Dink ‘n Sea Tournament. It was the largest pickleball event ever held in San Carlos. Only upward and onward for this fast-growing sport. And I understand the What’s Up Chicas did quite well, too; taking the gold. WAY COOL! The proto-German type, of course.

Keep an eye on the weather at our San Carlos Weather page with satellite images and live weather feeds.

Fishing, Golfing & Birding Reports

Fishing Report

Many will continue to say that the fishing is tough. A lot of fishermen have given up altogether. I will say that there is a ton of bait out there. I also believe that the fish are out there in good numbers.

Sometimes you just need to be fishing in the right spot at the right time. I was out with my father and a few friends for what was looking like a boat ride the other day, when we hit a fish in close. As quick as we could get lines out, we picked up a total of ten to 20 pounders in the next 1.5 hrs. They also were all within casting distance of San Antonio. It was probably the hottest trolling bite I’ve ever experienced, and we were the only boat out. The next day, we only hooked one there.

The bottom fishing is still fairly slow, though some grouper, calicos, and snapper are showing up. The water has been warming up, but the winds and tides could keep things cool. We’ve had some great weather! I think we even had a small Blue Whale exploring the waters, and within 30′ of our boat. There were a lot of yellowtail up the coast and at the Island. The fish will be biting, but you’ll probably be too late if you’re sitting around waiting to hear about it!

Birding Report

We had over 20 for our outing this past week. We went first to El Palmar settlement ponds where we saw a Streak-backed Oriole and a Zone-tailed Hawk along with the usuals: the Sora and Common Gallinule. In addition, a couple of our little flock of Least Grebes were busy building a nest just above the water and didn’t mind observers. After that we visited The New Development pond. This pond is close to El Palmar but always has different birds. In this case, it was chock full of Cinnamon and Blue-winged Teals, Lesser Scaup, and Redheads. A special surprise was a great viewing of a coyote who strolled leisurely along the bank across the pond from us. From there we went to the Paradiso Cactus forest and the Paradiso Lagoon by the Soggy Peso. At the forest, we had a wonderful viewing of Cactus wrens scuffling with each other in the scrub and a Gilded Flycatcher. At the Paradiso Lagoon we had more ducks including the Red-breasted Merganser and lots of Royal terns. We had lunch at La Salsa Beach Bar.

The Black Skimmer is the Bird of the Week. This shorebird is being seen regularly at the Estero Soldado right now. Although range maps show them here all year, we have not been seeing them in action until the past couple of weeks and “in action” is a wonderful thing to see. Sibley says they forage at night but we are seeing it in the late afternoon. The Black Skimmer has graceful long wings that allow it to make hairpin turns in its pursuit of fish. The distinctive black and red bill has a longer lower mandible that it uses to scoop up the fish. It is the only bird here that forages like this and it is amazing to see. Interestingly, when the Black Skimmer is resting, it often completely lays down on the ground and looks dead. Everything about it is dramatic, even its rest periods.

This coming week we will meet on Thursday at the Esterito Cafe at 8:00am. From there we will head out to Estero Soldado and hike out to the mouth. The Elegant Terns are arriving and it is always instructive to be able to see them next to the Royal and Caspian. We will also look for the beautiful little Mangrove Warbler.

If you have any questions, e-mail me at maryltannehill@yahoo.com. Happy Birding!
