BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Spring-like weather continue on Saturday, Bakersfield will have a high of 72 degrees, Lake Isabella in the mid-60s and 50s in the south mountains. Valley air quality remains good.
Wet weather returns to the region Sunday and it will continue for most of next week. A winter-like storm will bring rain across Kern County beginning in the afternoon on Sunday through Monday. By Monday, much colder air is filling into the region. This means we are tracking the chance for mountain snow. Afternoon thunderstorms are possible in the Kern County valley Monday and Tuesday afternoons.
By Monday, Bakersfield will be dropping to the low-60s. These temperatures will be 8 to 12 degrees lower than normal for this time of year.
It looks like by Wednesday and Thursday, there will be another round of showers with that colder air mass in place.
Conditions will slowly be clearing on Friday into next weekend.
