HEAT WAVE #4 BEGINS THIS WEEKEND
Temperatures at Meadows Field remained just below below 100 degrees today, so Heat Wave #4 remains on hold...at least for now...
By tomorrow highs will climb well over the triple digits across the majority of the county as a ridge of high pressure retrogrades back into our area. The mountains will be about ten degrees cooler than the rest of the county as highs jump to the mid 90s.
The weather really starts to heat up by Thursday of this week as highs climb close to 110 degrees. The warm tempeartures driven by this high pressure system combined with easterly winds from the south of this ridge. y the beginning of next month, we will be watching this high closely for the potential of thunderstorms in the mountains and Kern Valley locations as monsoonal moisture is wrapped into our county.
