LOVELY WEATHER, IF YOU ENJOY SUMMER

It was sunny and very nice for those who enjoy great summer weather. We have seen very dry air over central California, helping to make the 100-degree afternoon heat a bit more tolerable. The official high on Monday was 101°. Temperatures are expected to moderate just a touch for Tuesday and Wednesday with highs in the upper 90s to near 100°. Air quality has been good to moderate with all wildfire smoke concerns limited to northern California, where the Mendocino Complex Fire has burned more than 344,000 acres so far. Every day it is a new record for California, and continues to be an aggressive fire. The Donnell and Ferguson Fires are largely contained now and no longer aggressive.

Very little day-to-day change is anticipated in our weather for Kern County. Skies will be sunny for each of the next 10 days. There could be some isolated thunderstorm activity just to the east of us on Tuesday, as well as the high Sierra to our north. But as upper level high pressure regains its dominance in California by this weekend, precipitation will become unlikely even in those locales.

Brief moderation is again possible early next week with drier air. But the American medium range model is showing a warming trend by about the 10th day, late next week. We'll see if that materializes. In the meantime, enjoy our very nice summertime conditions.
