The onshore breeze will carry significantly cooler air out of the Gulf of Alaska. Highs should land in the upper 50s for the mountain areas, and low 70s to upper 60s in the south end of the San Joaquin Valley.
Kern County will clip the tail end of the cold front and have cloudy skies for the first half of your Friday.
There will be a slight chance for a morning sprinkle or drizzle along the western sides of the Tehachapis. Eventually, skies will clear from the northwesterly flow and leave a spectacular, clear evening.
This will leave good air quality for the weekend.
The cool air and clear skies will hold into Saturday and Mother's Day.
Highs range in the mid 70s, with low 60s for higher elevations.
The consistent on-shore flow will remain into Wednesday of next week!
