BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - We cooled into the low 70s for Tuesday's highs in the valley.
We'll return to normal temperatures this afternoon, with highs in the mid to upper 70s and some puffy cumulus clouds moving through mid-day and into early evening. Expect moderate air quality and just a slight breeze.
A ridge of high pressure is building tomorrow, so Friday turns hot for this time of year with highs in the mid to upper 80s in the valley.
Another significant cool down moves in for the weekend along but the slight chance of rain for our mountain areas is now drying up, so we'll just see winds on Saturday and clouds on Sunday. Expect highs in the 70s in the valley this weekend, the 60s in the Kern River Valley and possibly only in the 50 in Tehachapi and Frazier Park on Sunday.
Temperatures level out in the 70s next week, but there's still no rain in sight.
Looking ahead to Halloween, it looks like there's a cool down with some clouds that will drop us to just 69 in Bakersfield next Friday, but it looks dry for the trick-or-treaters that night! As you know, things can change dramatically in the forecast this time of year, so we will keep an eye on the skies as it gets closer.
