Perfect Weekend- Rain Next Week
With a big low pressure system spinning over the Four Corners and weak high pressure just to our west, California was basking in the sunshine on Friday. Kern County temperatures rose to well above normal values once again- into the mid 80s. Slightly warmer daytime readings are forecast for this weekend, up into the upper 80s to near 90°.
It will remain fairly warm still on Monday, but significant changes are coming for the middle of next week. Models all agree on much cooler and wetter conditions to descend upon Kern County by late Tuesday and into Wednesday. South valley highs will fall from the upper 80s this weekend to only the mid 60s by Thursday. Showers will linger into Friday morning. Mountain temperatures will also drop from the mid 70s this weekend to only about 50° by Thursday. Snow levels are predicted to drop to around 5,000 feet by Thursday. Once the cool low pressure system moves east late next Friday and nice following weekend is forecast- however, temperatures will be closer to normal values, in the 70s.
Have a great weekend!
