Two days in a row of record setting rainfall Friday and Saturday. Friday ended with .41"; Saturday .12". The previous records were .04" and .08" respectively. There still may be a slight atmospheric uplift around the Kern River valley this afternoon. We are leaving a 20% chance for afternoon thunderstorms in that area. Skies will at least become partly to mostly cloudy along our mountain areas. Skies will be mostly sunny throughout the rest of the county.
High pressure holds strong over the westcoast and will build the next several days. It will take our temps above normal starting Wednesday. Highs return to the 90s with triple digits looming by the upcoming weekend. Friday. Saturday and Sunday will all near 100°. This will be the first weekend we will be that close to the century marker! Slightly cooler air returns the folliowing week as we fall back to the low 90s.
