HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND !
This afternoon we started to see some rain in the Kern Valley and mountains. The same scenario may take place tomorrow as a low pressure system positioned over the coastline slides east. I have kept in a 50% chance for some thunderstorms in the higher elevations tomorrow afternoon and evening. For the South Valley, you will miss out on all the action, instead you will just feel the heat as temperatures tomorrow and into Memorial Day hang around the mid 90s.
Upper level high pressure is building right behind this low pressure system just waiting for this system to move out so he can squeeze his way in. By Tuesday, he will finally get his debut. We will be watching the mercury climb to the century mark with the help of a southeasterly flow aloft and some downsloping winds. The triple digits will stick around for the South Valley all the way until next weekend. The Kern Valley will keep temps into the 90s and mountain temperatures will reside in the 80s.
With triple digit heat looking likely next week, be sure to enter the Hot Times contest to win $1000 on an American Express card. The deadline for entering is this Sunday night at midnight. The Hot Times contest is brought to you by Bland Solar and Air.
