Slide Weather Alert

If you tried to make it from your ý residence to your vehicle Sunday afternoon, there's a good chance your hairdo was lost to the wind and you encountered blowing tumbleweeds, snapped tree branches and wayward trash as you made your way to your destination.

While the Grapevine, Interstate 5, and highways 99 and 58 through Kern County were largely open Sunday, localized problems snarled motorists as wind gusts topped 55 mph in some areas.
