BAKERSFIELD, Calif (KERO) — Happy Wednesday, today will see a rapid warm up with high temperatures 15 degrees above normal.

This is a dangerous and prolonged heat wave that will last several days with an Extreme Heat Risk.

An Excessive Heat Warning remains in effect through Wednesday, July 10th at 8 AM, and may need to be extended further as the week progresses.

The risk of grass fires will continue with herbaceous fuel loading at or near 120% of normal.

A long period of excessive heat, minimum relative humidities near 15% and poor overnight recoveries will add to the grass fire risk.

Our forecast high today in Bakersfield is 110 degrees with lows in the high seventies.
