A Delightful Weekend Weatherwise
Clouds were pervasive overnight and through the mid-morning time frame on Friday. Winds were brisk in the Kern County mountains and desert areas. But the trough of low pressure which brought the cooler weather has now moved to the east. Skies cleared through the afternoon revealing sunshine and mild temperatures. Highs rose into the upper 70s and low 80s on Friday. It should be clear and cool overnight leading to an invigorating low on Saturday morning in the mid 50s. But the anticipated warming trend is set to start this weekend with low to mid 80s both days. Our very comfortable weather has scored an A+ on the Muziometer in the south valley on Saturday. Another exceptionally beautiful day is forecast for Sunday with highs in the mid 80s. It turns hot for Monday and Tuesday with 90s predicted. But the hot weather will be brief, as another deep low pressure area moves southeast to a position along the west coast. That will moderate temperatures and bring a few clouds to California. Highs should sharply drop back to the mid 80s by Wednesday and upper 70s by next Friday. A gradual warming trend will then develop for the Memorial Day holiday weekend. Temperatures next weekend will again rise through the 80s. Memorial Day itself looks like a particularly nice beginning to the summer season with highs in the upper 80s under sunny skies.
