A cold front pushed through the state, bringing below average temperatures over the weekend! Afternoon highs fell around 8-10 degrees below average on Sunday.

With this, we will also see a period of strong winds on Sunday, prompting a wind advisory in the Mojave area. That expires at 10 pm. A Red Flag warning in the Kern Mountains expires at 8 pm, meaning elevated fire concerns due to gusty winds paired with dry vegetation.

And we hope you enjoyed that cooler weather because we are about to see a bit of a warm up! The weather system that brought those cooler afternoon highs will exit the region on Sunday evening.

Heading into next week, temperatures begin to rise again, as high pressure builds near the Great Basin. We will also start off the week with moderate air quality, with an AQI of 97.

We will see a return of that triple digit heat in parts of Kern County on Tuesday and Wednesday.

However, cooler weather will remain in control for the remainder of the week as a low pressure system returns. That is when temperatures will fall back into the 80's to 90's in the Valley just in time for fall!
