Seeing very different weather patterns compared to this time last year, where we saw snow storms and road closures near the Grapevine. Traditionally, this month is considered a wet season for Central California. However, this year we are expecting dry conditions for at least the next 7-10 days.
A weak upper level ridge of high pressure remains in control through Sunday. This will keep skies clear and winds light, but bring frosty temperatures during the morning and night hours. The National Weather Service issued a Valley Freeze warning each morning through Monday from the hours of 1 a.m to 8a.m. Rural areas of the San Joaquin Valley are expected to see upper 20's to low 30's during this time. The NWS is also urging the public to protect the "Four P's" during this time. This is people, pets, plants, and pipes. During the day much of Kern County will climb into the 60's. Highs will remain near the low 60's until Tuesday, but climb into the high 60's by Wednesday.
Air quality will remain in the good range for the Greater Frazier Park area on Sunday, but remain unhealthy for the sensitive groups for the rest of Kern County.
