BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Bakersfield topped out at 79 degrees, and we'll be about the same on Thursday as high clouds and a breeze moving through keep us from warming too dramatically.
The season's first winter-like storm arrives Friday night, right as the little ones are wrapping up their trick-or-treating. For now, Halloween remains dry until around 9 pm so head out as soon as its dark (the sun sets about 6 p.m., 7 p.m. will be perfect timing).
While valley rain starts at 9 p.m., the mountains need to wait until about 11 p.m. and last through the overnight hours. It will get cold enough overnight Friday that Tehachapi could see some snow flurries early Saturday, but don't expect any accumulation.
As a result of this push of cooler and wetter weather, afternoon highs in Bakersfield will drop into the low 60s for Saturday and Sunday with lingering clouds and great air quality.
