      NEAR NORMAL LATE AUGUST WEATHER

      Very little change has taken place in our general weather scenario. It was sunny and typically hot in the south valley Thursday. Highs were in the upper 90s. Bakersfield, for the third day in a row, saw 98°. A weak trough of low pressure will settle southward on Friday and Saturday with slightly cooler air for the central valley- mid 90s.

      High pressure then briefly bulks up from the south by Monday for highs close to 100° in Bakersfield. That is then followed by a slow moderation for next week culminating in, what the European model illustrates as, a broad trough along the western US coastline. If that verifies we could see significantly cooler high temperatures for the big Labor Day holiday weekend. At this time I am forecasting low 90s, but the models indicates highs only in the 80s. One thing for sure is that there will be no precipitation in the next 10 days.

      Smoke layers based at about 10,000 feet above the south valley floor were observed on Thursday. Smoke from both the Cedar Fire currently burning on the Kern-Tulare County line north of Lake Isabella and the Chimney Fire burning close to the Hearst Castle in San Luis Obispo county has sent layers of smoke into the central California skies. Only in the Kernville and Wofford Heights area has the smoke intersected the ground, and that primarily in the late night and early morning hours. Cal Fire has stated that the Cedar Fire should be extinguished by the middle of September.
