As wildfire smoke blocks the sun, we will be seeing cooler temperatures on Sunday. Bakersfield will stay in those low 80's for most of the day on Sunday. Unfortunately, smoke is expected to take over much of the area Sunday. We will see unhealthy air quality for those sensitive groups, with an AQI of 133.

Starting on Monday we will jump back into those 90's until Thursday. An offshore flow will bring cooler temperatures again by Friday. Seeing dry conditions over the next 7 days.

We will continue to track smoke from the California wildfires.
