Fog A Bigger Story... Soon
Light rainfall from Taft to the Grapevine this morning. Snow will be seen in the Pine Mountain Club area around 5,000'. The rainfall is from a quick moving front out of the northwest moving into southern California. Maximum amount of showers will near a .10". Skies should clear by late morning. The cold air associated with it will mix help keep temps near the freezing maker in our mountain areas this morning; 40s in the south valley. Afternoon high temperatures near the low 60s for the south valley; upper 40s through the mountain areas. Skies clear across the whole county by this afternoon.
Clouds return Friday afternoon as one more passing impulse arrives out of the northest. The front will bring a 10% chance for a light shower for the south valley, Kern River valley and most mountain areas Friday evening into early Saturday. Skies should clear by Saturday midday allowing for stable air to then take over. Once high pressure rebuilds over the west... eastern Kern County will see plenty of sunshine and warmer temperatures. That will last into Christmas week. However... the south valley floor (Bakersfield) will have dense fog forming each and every morning. Look for Dense Fog Advisories starting Sunday.
