Our air quality has also taken a turn for the worse. The Valley Air Control District reporting our AQI is 136 today.

Scattered showers made their way through Bakersfield and parts of McFarland and Delano this morning. However, as fast as they moved in this morning, they're quickly moving out. Expect a clear and dry day ahead for most communities expect a few spots in Lake Isabella.
