A week system moves through California today, dropping temps into the lows 80's in Bakersfield and 60's in Tehachapi. This will also bring a chance of showers into higher elevations of the Sierra Nevadas. Don't expect strong organized storms, as they'll be light and remain mostly above 6,000 feet, but you may feel some drizzle or hear a clap of thunder.
Easter Sunday and Monday will be very dry as high pressure builds over Central California. The skies will clear and we'll remain in the lower 80s on Saturday, with sunshine and stability returning to the region just in time for Easter Sunday. Expect Sunday morning to be in the 60s, so you'll need a sweater when you go to church, but things will heat up quickly and we'll get up to 85° Sunday afternoon.Read full story
