The very last weather system is approaching the California Coast as we speak. This system will affect Kern County with Thunderstorms on Saturday, followed by a frontal zone moving through the other metro zones through Sunday. A Severe Weather Statement has been issued for Kern so read on for details …
Been a very nice day across the southland today with only a few showers in the upper mountain areas with some light showers leaking into the Santa Barbara zones in the Short Term Forecast area. This will change as the last weather system to cross our region this season is expected over the weekend, starting in Kern County on Saturday and then filling in the rest of the metros through Sunday.
I have issued a Severe Weather Statement for a pending alert upgrade in the Kern County areas. It reads; An impulse rounding the coast will enter the Kern County region out of the west on Saturday afternoon and evening. This impulse will carry some upper divergence with it. Instability profiles look rather impress with the high May sun angle and this will work with upslope activity for the chance of thunderstorm activity from the Central/Western Kern Valley south to the Gorman/PMC areas and east to the entire Tehachapi Mountain Range.

As for the rest of the area, through Sunday a frontal zone will move through. This frontal zone is expected to be weak, but deliver some more rainfall, ending the 2018-2019 season after it passes. Southern California Weather Force models do show a classic pattern where the coast would see less than inland where upslope activity would favor the areas near and on the south and west facing mountain slopes. The graphic in this article displays such.
As next month… It is looking like we are ending this stormy pattern and we will start to see hotter temperatures. This was a wrench pattern and my heatwave for end this month was pushed up until we get rid of this pattern and this should happen over the next 10-14 days. Summer is coming …
