      OCTOBER DAWNS COOLER

      Weather in Kern County has moderated for the last day of the month. Highs generally rose into the low 90s. Skies were mostly sunny. But as October dawns tomorrow much cooler weather is expected to filter in to the state and our county. A trough of low pressure is destined to cross California and much of the west with the biggest changes of the season so far.

      To our north, a Winter Weather Advisory has been posted for the central and northern Sierra where 3-5” of snow is predicted to fall as low as the 6,000 foot level. Here in the Tehachapi mountains I’m expecting some light rain late Sunday night into early Monday morning with a dusting of snow above 6,500’. Certainly it will feel more autumnal perfectly timed with the start of October.

      I issued my “No More 100s” forecast on Thursday and it’s looking good. Temperatures will begin to warm again by the middle of next week with clearing skies. But a large ridge of high pressure is NOT forecast to come back in the wake of our cool snap. Instead, it is appearing more likely that temperatures will not rise above the 80s before our next weather system blows in from the Pacific. The chance for any rainfall is scant Monday morning but it will emphasize the changing of the seasons. I won’t be surprised if a Wind Advisory or even a High Wind WATCH is issued for the mountains valid late Sunday and Monday.

      So, have a blast at the Kern County Fair if you have a chance this weekend. The weather will be great.
