BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Get ready to endure some HEAT this weekend.
Friday, we got up to 95° and it's only going up from there today. Bakersfield will get up to 98° and Wasco will see 100° as well as Arvin. The mountains will even see 90s by the afternoon with mostly clear skies. Unfortunately, air quality will be unhealthy for sensitive groups with an AQI of 114.
Sunday will be a repeat of the same thing but the ridge of high pressure will scoot out of the way by Monday, dropping our temperatures down to the 80s for the first week of June.
A couple of earthquakes to note this morning - A 4.8 magnitude earthquake hit at 4:33 a.m. near San Simeon and another 5.5 hit at the exact same time in northern California about 20 miles west of Chico. Do you think the "big one" will hit soon?
