      NINO-23 BRINGS THUNDERSTORMS AND SCATTERED SHOWERS THROUGH SATURDAY

      Cloudy skies start out our Thursday... the precursor to showers arriving later today. An off shore low west of southern California will move slowly inland today. It will bring a 50-70% chance for scattered showers starting after noon. Thunderstorms will be likely for the region through tonight. Then as the low moves further inland we'll clip the backside of the storm front bringing a chance for rainfall through Saturday morning. Rainfall amounts for Bakersfield and the south valley could reach up to .25-.50"; mountain areas .50-1.00" during that period. Winds will pick up, too. Gusts around 25-35 MPH may be seen over the Frazier Park area into the Grapevine and south valley. Those winds may create a "rain shadow" affect for our valley area, blocking much of our rainfall. Time will tell.

      Temperatures are changing, too! Tuesday saw highs in the low 90s, yesterday in the 80s and today low 70s. The cool to cold air dropping out of the gulf of Alaska will linger over the region starting today through Sunday. Highs in the low 70s for the south valley; low 50s across most mountain areas.

      This is the 23rd El Nino storm of the season. We are still below normal for the water year, so it will be great to see more rainfall. Sunday the storm system exits allowing for high pressure to build. Highs return to the 90s with sunny skies by Tuesday of next week!
