Thanks for bringing the wind!!

Just in time to get the party started!!


Write up from Wunderground...

.. Wind Advisory remains in effect from 11 am Wednesday to 5 PM
PDT Thursday...

A Wind Advisory remains in effect from 11 am Wednesday to 5 PM
PDT Thursday for the Kern County mountains and deserts.

* Winds: west 25 to 40 mph with gusts to 55 mph below the
passes.

* Timing: the strongest winds are expected Wednesday afternoon
and evening and again Thursday afternoon.


......A storm system dropping out of the Gulf of Alaska will bring
breezy conditions to the Kern County mountain and desert areas
Tuesday night and Wednesday. The strongest winds will be on
Wednesday behind the cold front... with gusts up to 45 mph. Higher
gusts will be possible at times through and below favored passes
and canyons. In the San Joaquin Valley... winds could gust to 35
mph on the west side of the valley. Blowing dust will be possible
near recently plowed fields. On Thursday... there is a chance that
winds will be equally as strong in these areas.

Noticeable cooling is expected on Wednesday and Thursday as
temperatures could cool as much as 10 to 15 degrees during this
time. In addition... patchy frost is possible in the San Joaquin
Valley and the adjacent lower foothills during the early morning
hours. In the coldest locations of the valley and the lower
foothills... temperatures on Friday morning will be in the lower
30s.
