BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Our weekend brings heat and dry conditions, that will bring us about 10 degrees above average. There's a ridge of high pressure hanging over central California. Today's highs bring mid 90s to the South Valley, upper 80s to the Kern Mountains and low 90s across the Kern desert.
Tomorrow brings just a tad of relief. We will get some onshore from coming from the Pacific Northwest, and will bring temperatures down by about 3 degrees from Saturday's highs.
There's currently a disturbance off the coast of Mexico. It's a low pressure system that's heading north and is expected to hit central California by midweek. At that point, we have slight rain chances. For now, we are seeing 20-percent in Kern River Valley and South Valley, with a more promising 30-percent in Tehachapi. These slight rain chances exist for Wednesday and Thursday.
