Foggy Weather Returns this Weekend
Skies will slowly start to clear by Saturday morning. The latest and last weak cold front exits east Saturday morning. Skies will be partly cloudy. Late that evening high pressure builds in from the west. That will create warmer conditions for eastern Kern County; mountain, Ker River valley and desert areas. Starting Sunday highs will warm to the 60s in those areas. The south valley will be quite different. The ridge will take the damp San Jouquin valley floor and help Tule fog form. Sunday through Wednesday morning look for dense fog to form. Visibility may extend lower than 500 ft. A Dense Fog Advisory may be posted on thise days. Temperatures may fall to the low to mid 50s.
Christmas Day a weak impulse drops out of the northwest to mix out the fog. Skies will become partly cloudy with afternoon temperatures headed to seasonal highs; some 60s too. It should be a beautiful Christmas Day!
