This morning we woke up to light snow flurries along Tehachapi, Pine Mountain Club and Frazier Park. An upper level low moving west of San Diego heads inland bringing clouds and light precip this morning. It may bring more flurries again this afternoon briefly as the back end of the storm swings west. Skies remain partly cloudy with highs in the 50s for the south valley; 40s in the mountains.
High pressure builds in over the weekend to have temps rise in the low 60s by Monday. Until then it will remain chilly. In fact, the clear atmosphere will allow for freezing temps to return to Bakersfield and the south valley. A Freeze WATCH and WARNING have been issued for the San Joaquin valley tonight and likely again into Sunday. Temps will dip into the 20s & low 30s for a good 4-6 hours in spots. Bring in your pets and cover special vegetation the next few nights. The air quality will be in the moderate range, so wood burning is okay. Great news for the cold air.
Fog may also become an issue heading into the weekend and early next week. If you do encounter it, be sure to drive slow in dense fog and do not use your brights. Have a great Thanksgiving weekend.
