TIME TO COOL DOWN
A low pressure system set to move through the northern half of California today. It will help bring a gradual cooling trend over the next few days. High temperatures from today into Thursday will drop a good 10-degrees; 97 to 87. Clouds rolling in from the off shore marine layer will roll through the region today as a sign of the front moving through. Otherwise, mostly clear skies with air quality improving day after day.
Today's air quality is in the poor range. Wednesday, air quality drops to the moderate range. Thursday should reach good air quality as the westerly air flow peaks.
High pressure returns by the end of the week from the Midwest. This will be the start of a monsoonal flow across the Southwest. A more hot and humid outlook will develop. This will push potential tropical thunderstorms over the region by next week in eastern Kern County. It definitely will drive up temperatures by the weekend into next week. Highs return to seasonal heat; low to mid 90s. The likelihood of triple digits will be measured by how strong the southeasterly flow will be. For now we have mid to upper 90s headed into the start of July; next week. ***Side Note*** Monday was our 8th triple digit day of 2019. That is normal for the year with eight triple digits by June 25th.
