Most of it is smog, but yes a lot of it is smoke from the Thomas Fire filling in along the Hwy 33 corridor and spilling into the south San Joaquin Valley where it gets trapped here https://t.co/RFyNopFwKM
The latest drought monitor report came out this morning and shows more and more of Kern County is returning to drought conditions. We've seen .03" of rain in Bakersfield so far this water year... we should have collected more than 1.3" by now... https://t.co/6UAsz8xgbF
Sunny and hazy in the valley again today with a high of 67°. Dry Santa Ana winds are gusting to 35-45 mph through the Kern mountains, peaking from about 10 a.m. to noon, creating a dangerous wildfire threat today.
