BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - It's 90s for the last weekend of the summer!
Bakersfield only hit 88° yesterday and the last time we had a high in the 80s was July 23rd of this year.
We'll warm into the low 90s for the weekend with overnight lows in the low 70s. Bakersfield will reach 93°, Lake Isabella will get up to 89° and Tehachapi will see 83° this afternoon. A slight chance for some afternoon pop-up thunderstorms is not out of the question in the southern Sierra Nevadas this afternoon but most of it will stay to our north. If we do get anything it will be near Lake Isabella and Frazier Park.
Sunday will be slightly warmer at 95° with breezy conditions in the Kern desert at around 20-25 mph. The first day of fall will be even warmer at 96°. Even though it won't be sweater weather just yet, no triple digits will return as high pressure begins to strengthen.
We'll return in to the 80s by the end of next week with overnight lows dropping in to the 60s. Air quality will be moderate.
