As of noon it's 63 degrees in Bakersfield, but the clouds have been slow to clear this morning. We're seeing a beautiful and mostly clear view to the north, with puffy cumulus clouds dotting the sky. The mountain communities are pretty gray right now, but we're watching for more clearing throughout the day. The mountains are also dealing with the winds this afternoon as a result. Expect winds sustained at 5-15 mph in the valley, 15-30 mph in the mountains, 10-25 mph in the desert.
