Passing clouds but no rain as hazy and relatively warm weather dominates

Terrible air quality in the south valley today

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. -

Strong high pressure still grips the west coast, giving us another day of dangerously dry air and bad haze here in the valley. In fact, the air quality is just two points away from being unhealthy for everyone, so be sure to take it easy outdoors and don't overexert yourself in this pollution. There is no wood burning permitted unless you have a registered device.

As the Santa Ana winds continue to our south, we'll have gusts to 30 miles per hour here in our local mountains with some 70s popping up in the Kern River Valley this afternoon as a result. The south valley will be in the upper 60s this afternoon, more than 10 degrees above average, while Tehachapi and Frazier Park will be in the mid-60s.

Temperatures will linger between 65 to 72 degrees for the next 10 days, with no rain in sight. Speaking of the rain, usually by now in the season we've seen more than an inch, but since October 1st, we've only collected .03-hundredths of an inch.
