BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Today turned out to be much cooler than yesterday with only a high of 79°, an 11 degree drop from 90°! Lake Isabella still managed to reach 85°, Frazier Park saw 72° and Tehachapi only got up to 63°.
This is all a result of our cold front that moved in this morning, bringing in these cooler temps and windy conditions across the county. We're continuing to monitor high gusts today with Mojave seeing 43 mph around 1 p.m. A high wind advisory is in effect until 11 p.m. with a possibility of blowing dust. Please take caution if you're driving as blowing dust can lower visibility on the roads.
This pattern will also be the story on Wednesday with highs in the 70s along the valley floor and upper 60s in our mountain communities. Winds will continue to blow into the early morning hours with gusts up to 30-40 mph.
As Easter Sunday approaches, more cooler weather will prevail across the county with clear skies. Highs will remain in the 70s in Bakersfield and even upper 50s in the mountains.
Air quality stays moderate for now.
