A Nice Summer Weekend
Temperatures rose to nearly 100° on Friday, but a slight cooling is anticipated for the weekend as a trough of low pressure helps to bring an onshore flow to Kern County. Skies will remain sunny through the middle of next week. Temperatures are then expected to rise with the advent of a large ridge of high pressure Wednesday through Saturday of next week. Highs will top out at slightly over the century mark. Heat Wave #5 looks likely, but it should be minimal in intensity and relatively short lived. A minor cool down into the 90s is forecast for the latter portion of this upcoming Labor Day holiday weekend.
