Chance for Showers Late Saturday
Today a surge of warm air takes over the region. High pressure exiting towards the Four Corners will push an off shore flow making for windy conditions across the mountains. Gusts ranging 25-30 MPH through the passes are expected. The SE wind will drive the south valley temps towards the low to mid 80s; near 10° above normal. Mountain areas will also reach the low 80s.
Saturday... that will all change. Cooler and potentially wet weather may arrive. A deep low pressure system, associated cold front drops out of the Gulf of Alaska Saturday. It will become breezy with temps falling back to seasonal highs. As for the rain...we will issue a 10% chance for light rain late Saturday evening into Sunday morning. This will most likely be cloud coverage. If there is any rain it will be in Tehachapi, Frazier Park, Lake Isabella and maybe Arvin. Either way it will get much cooler. 60s and 70s return across the entire region and should last through most of next week.
