MORE HEAT FOR THE WEEKEND

Temperatures improved another 2 degrees from yesterday with Thursday's high reach 102° after a morning low of 77°. Humidity levels were moderate with another 2 heat stress units added to our total for Heat Wave #3. It was day 6 of the wave, and it appears to be a long term event well into next month. Highs will again top out between 100° and 105° through the weekend. Skies were mostly sunny as the monsoon has been held to the east- for now.

High pressure aloft will retrograde back to our region from the US Southern High Plains by about Tuesday for a hot start to August. Computer models are in agreement that this will be a very hot period of time coming up. Highs should ramp up to about 108° by this time next week. The following weekend will have the threat of another round of 110° extreme heat, along with extreme heat stress forecast for then. Additionally, the monsoon pattern will once again push our way with a chance for thunderstorms and heavy rainfall with dangerous lightning in Kern County by Wednesday. The greatest risk of thunderstorms will come next Wednesday through Friday. I've included a 20% chance for thunderstorms in the mountains and eastern Kern County next Thursday, with a 10% chance those storms could drift into the south valley.

A small earthquake struck the Weldon area east of Lake Isabella this afternoon. The magnitude 3.5 temblor hit at 5:48 PM about 5 miles beneath the ground. It rated a Mercalli Scale 5 event, which indicates moderate shaking with the potential for very light damage.
