Site: Southern California Weather Force has issued a Short Term Forecast effective now through Wednesday …
Date: 4/8/19 at 5:40pm PT
Forecast: A northwest flow will move into the area by around 3-4am Tuesday morning and last for 6-8 hours for the most part. This flow will allow for cloud tops to go over the 10,000 FT mark and thus heavier precipitation amounts will be possible from the PMC/Gorman zones, up through just south of Tehachapi. 0.50 – 0.75″ of rain is expected in those zones.
Tehachapi will be around a 0.25″ or so with a trace expected in Bakersfield. Clouds and off and on very light showers will be possible through Tuesday evening and then those winds come in later Tuesday and those will be damaging at times, with gusts well over 60+ mph at times in the mountain and pass zones.
