BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Happy Friday! For any shoppers who braved the overnight temperatures, that is impressive. Overnight temperatures were in the 30s across the county, which put a freeze warning into effect. The Freeze Warning expires at 10a.m. this morning. However, we are under a freeze watch going into Saturday night. This means making sure your pets are warm and to protect your vegetation, as the frost brings a huge threat to crops. We were also looking at chances of rain for the weekend, but that disturbance will not effect Central California. Instead, it will bring rain across Southern California. San Diego and Orange counties are under a Coastal Flood Advisory. However, here in Kern County, we are going to keep it nice and dry. With a continued low parked in the four corners region, it will bring polar air and bring afternoon highs below average. We will continue to see patchy fog in the South Valley through the weekend, and areas of morning frost across the county with cold air flowing through the region. Today's highs include 56 in Bakersfield, 42 in Frazier Park, 50 in Lake Isabella and 45 in Kernville.
Looking ahead, we don't have any rain or snow in our 7 day forecast. The cooling trend will continue until we slowly climb back closer to our seasonal averages.
