Another winter storm pushing through the region on today will bring gusty winds to the Kern County Mountains and Desert areas along with possible blowing dust. Winds will be on the increase beginning this morning, a storm but the strongest winds across the Kern County Mountains and Deserts will occur between 2 PM until 10 PM.
Winter Weather Advisories are in effect for the Sierra Foothills and the Kern County Mountains for this evening through Friday morning. Snow accumulations will range from a dusting to as much as 2 inches above 1500 feet. A storm system moving through central California tonight into Friday will bring much colder temperatures, snow showers above 1500 feet, and gusty winds especially in the Kern County mountains where westerly winds could gust up to 40 mph at times. Due to the showery nature of the snow, not all locations will receive it. However, the areas that do will have slick, snow-covered roads or icy roads and potential travel delays. Hikers and campers should be prepared for a change to colder weather, blustery winds and snow.
Freeze Watch in effect for Friday night through Saturday morning for much of the San Joaquin Valley. Temperatures are expected to drop into the mid 20s to lower 30s. Temperatures this cold can negatively impact people, animals, plants and pipes. Please be sure to check on the elderly and make sure your pets and livestock have warm shelter during the overnight hours during this event.
