Nothing all that new in the forecast Tuesday.

Bakersfield's heatwave was extended to 23 days, good for 8th longest on record.

Wednesday's forecast high of 100° means another chance to extend the heatwave.

Tuesday was a less active day as far as monsoonal moisture is concerned, with only one shower popping up in the vicinity of Walker Pass.

Showers and storms will be a little more widespread on Wednesday, with a few pop ups expected in Northeast Kern.

Moisture will become more widespread Wednesday night into Thursday, and we'll keep a close eye on the radar through the weekend and into next week.
