In this image notice the isobar lines concentrate around the high-pressure zone in the northern Great Basin. Also notice how a few of those isobars are over the northern portion of Baja. The El Norte winds will begin to build in that area today.

Then tomorrow that high pressure moves southward towards the 4 corners so the isobars extend all the way over Baja’s East Cape bringing strong El Norte winds. At the same time strong winds develop just aloft adding a real gust factor.

Unfortunately, a combo of the upper trough and the subtropical jet stream will bring mostly heavy clouds aloft and to the surface. This means cool air and very UP AND DOWN shifty wind especially inside.
