SEASONABLY WARM WEEKEND
A trough digging through the state is producing some afternoon thunderstorms to the north of the county lines. There is strong enough instability to produce lightning and hail, so be cautious of any outdoor activity if you have plans to go hiking this weekend. For us here, we are seeing some fairly windy conditions in our mountains and deserts. Winds will stay breezy throughout the night, die down tomorrow morning and pick up again tomorrow afternoon. Highs will stay in the mid 80s and mid 70s in the mountains.
Monday a cut off low drops in, which will increase chances of precipitation across the higher elevations on Monday. We could even see thunderstorms in the Kern Valley with the best chance during the afternoon and evening. Temperatures will drop slightly heading into the start of the work week, but as the low moves out on Tuesday night, highs will once again be on the rise into next weekend. Memorial Day weekend is expected to be warm with highs in the mid 90s.
