Valle de Guadalupe rainy season


Ensenada has a slight variation of monthly rainfall per season. The rainy season lasts 5 months, from November to April. The highest record occurred in the winter of 1977-1978 when the phenomenon of "El Niño" was presented, one of the most intense events in this region. The total accumulated was 638.2 mm. In contrast, the lowest was presented in 2001-2002, when 89.8mm were recorded.


Generally the "El Niño" event is associated in this region with above average rainfall. In contrast, when "La Niña" occurs, rainfall below average would be expected. In 2017, a neutral condition was presented. Meteorological models generate surface and height charts.

In winter of 2017 they observed, especially in the month of December, that a high pressure system was stationed in the northwestern part of Canada, in the Pacific Ocean. This blocked the cold air masses and the cold fronts from the north prevented them from moving to our region.

Consequently, the rain didn’t show up here.

This year the precipitation season could be the strongest and most anticipated in the region. Both civil protection and the meteorology department of CISESE affirm that there is a probability of 70 percent of heavy rainfall in the region in late 2018 and early 2019 due to the El Niño phenomenon.



Santiago Higareda Cervera, a meteorologist at CISESE, stated that we are currently in a period of neutral transition between a La Niña phenomenon and a El Niño phenomenon.


One of the recommendations for the population is a change of habits by taking care of water and see what we can do with the little rain that arrives in our region because Baja California is a state where it rains little; that is a reality that we can not change, what we can change are our habits, we must be prepared and take advantage of the little water that comes to us and prevent everything from going to sea.

Let's save water.
