No wind advisories for valley today. It will be comfortable, too for a couple of days
It may get a little windy and dusty again this evening, but probably not as bad as Sunday afternoon and evening.
The National Weather Service said Monday night will be breezy, with a west southwest wind 20 to 25 mph decreasing to 10 to 15 mph after midnight. Winds could gust as high as 30 mph.
That means blowing dust is a possibility.
However, no advisories have been issued for the valley. A wind advisory is in effect for the higher terrain of southern and eastern Kern County, including Grocer Grade for motorists traveling on Highway 33/166. The advisory also covers I-5 and Highway 58 east past Tehachapi.
Winds in the hills and higher terrain will be west 25 to 35 mph with gusts to 45 mph through and below the canyons and passes.
The strongest winds are likely between 3 p.m. and midnight, the NWS said.
The weather in Taft is going to stay comfortable for a couple of days.
Highs Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are expected to stay win the 80s before warming to the mid to upper 90s for the rest of the week.
