Following a warm week in the 90s for Bakersfield, a slight cooling trend brings temperatures into the 80s.

Sunday’s high temperatures range as high as 94° in the desert and as low as 71° in the mountains. Both the Kern River Valley and the Valley will be in the 80s.

Bakersfield can expect to stay within the 80s through next week, with a possibility of reaching low 90s towards the middle of the week. But don’t worry, temperatures are expected to cool down following a brief warming trend.

However, gusty winds push through Kern. While the Valley has more breezy conditions, the mountain and desert regions can expect stronger winds.

A wind advisory in Mojave starts Sunday at 5 p.m. and lasts until Monday at 8 a.m. The desert regions can expect 25-35 mph winds, with gusts near 55 mph. Even after the wind advisory is lifted, more strong winds are expected to continue in the desert Monday afternoon.
