Issued Zones: Kern County Valley …
Site: Southern California Weather Force has issued a Thunderstorm Watch effective this afternoon and evening …
Date Issued: 1/22/24 at 5:10am local
Forecast: A storm system moving through the area will bring in cold air aloft as we move through the afternoon and especially evening hours across the Kern Valley areas, including Bakersfield.
The daytime heating due to the breaks in the clouds will bring stronger instability as well. This, combined with the upper divergence (lift) of the northwest quadrant of the storm will bring the risk of thunderstorms containing funnel clouds/isolated tornado, hail, wind, and heavy rain.
Storms will clear after about the 9-10pm hour, if not sooner.

10 mile rule: These alerts issued on this site means that within your zone and 10 miles from you will see the event forecast for. You may or may not see the event but it means you are in the zone or 10 miles from where someone will.
Southern California Weather Force is a custom weather alert service that began in September 1999 off and is regarded as the most accurate weather service in the region, offering custom alerts, maps, and models to help save life and property. The work done here is never 100% accurate, but it comes pretty close. Southern California Weather Force runs on zones, so if an event happens in a zone that is 10 miles from the border of your zone, the forecast is still valid to activate your zone’s alert system. A company quote to the public is that of “The Joker” and tells other agencies in weather this all the time… “This world deserves a better class of meteorologist… and I’m gonna give it to them”… out-forecasting even the National Weather Service with lead-time and precision, which makes this service a focus of ridicule and envy in the weather community due to having such accuracy. Alerts issued here are issued custom from this office and this office alone. You may not even hear it elsewhere, but if one is issued near or in your area, listen up because “if you do not wish to die in weather, follow, it’ll save your life one day.”
