Sunny and Warm Easter
A weak ridging high pressure system builds the next two days to make for a very warm Easter Sunday. Sunrise will be at 6:17 AM with temps in the upper 50s. However, be sure to get the egg hunts in early... temps will warm up fast! Mid to upper 80s expected for Sunday afternoon and Monday. Skies will be clear until Monday afternoon. A deep moving cold front will bring much cooler air, windy conditions and a chance for rain by Tuesday. The front arrives Tuesday late morning / early afternoon. We've placed a 20% chance for showers over the Kern River valley and mountain areas; 10% chance over the south valley. The majority of shower activity should remain north of the county, but no matter what it will cool significantly. Temps should fall a good 15° back to seasonal highs; if not just below seasonal. Clouds will pile-up Wednsday morning until clearing and warmer / sunny weather returns by the end of next week. Have a happy and wonderful Easter.
