Discussion:

Upper level high pressure will begin to weaken over the district as a low pressure system dives south from Idaho to a position over northern Baja by Friday. Some mid level cloudiness will stream up ahead of the system in Arizona during the afternoon on Thursday. Coastal low cloudiness will be minimal Thursday morning, but increase with IFR and MVFR ceilings more widespread by Friday morning. Smoke from the Windy Fire will expand into Kern County with IFR visibilities possible in the Bakersfield area by early Friday morning- in addition to unhealthy air quality.
