HEAT ADVISORY FOR THE WEEKEND
Hot weather is here for the time being. Upper level high pressure will be in charge for the next several days allowing for very hot conditions to develop. Highs this weekend will be the hottest of the next few days with daytime readings running close to 104 in the South Valley. Mountain highs will range into the low 90s. It will be close to 100° in the Kern River Valley and our deserts will peak from 106-111°.
Some minor moderation is expected for the middle of next week as a trough of low pressure to our north impinges a bit on the big ridge. That will bring about more of an onshore flow which should, in turn, bring the daytime temperatures down to around 100°. A broad trough is foreseen in both major computer models for the end of next week. I have modified my forecast to keep highs in the 90s for the following weekend into early the first week of July. Of course, no rain is anticipated.
Be sure to respect the Heat. Dress appropriately, stay hydrated and try to stay in the shade as much as possible. Most importantly parents please watch your kids around water.
