KERN COUNTY, Calif. — Thursday brought us rain across Kern County but here in Bakersfield, totals were a bit disappointing, barely over a tenth of an inch.

However, storm was much more productive in other parts of the county, with over an inch falling in some of our local foothills.

Skies are drying out this evening, and we should stay dry into the weekend.

We expect a cool, gradually clearing day for Friday, with some cold temperatures Friday night! Freezing temperatures are expected across much of the San Joaquin Valley with sub freezing conditions in the Kern Desert. Freeze watches are in effect for many of our Valley and desert location through Saturday morning.

After we get through our dry weekend, another storm system is waiting for us.

This system looks to move in late Monday into Tuesday.

It's still too far out for refined details, but in general this storm is looking stronger.

That means the potential for more rain, more snow, and lower snow levels.

We'll be tracking that storm through the weekend and keeping you updated!
