Seeing those seasonal 60's for the remainder of the weekend, but temperatures are expected to rise to above average by early next week! This is because of a ridge f high pressure building, bringing a warming trend for Monday and Tuesday. However, this ridge will start to push eastward as a cold front moves in on Tuesday night. After this we will see a return of the 60's. We are also seeing a chance of rain and snow in the high elevations to the North of us on Tuesday and Wednesday night. Chance of precipitation in Kern County remains low during this time.

We had a wind advisory in the Mountain and Desert communities expire on Saturday at 2 a.m. Gusts are expected to die down for the next several days, but they may pick back up as this cold front pushes through. As for our air quality on Sunday, staying in that moderate range with an AQI of 89. Most of the wildfire smoke and rain is staying to the North of us. We will continue to track this for the week ahead.
