Bakersfield’s desert climate means that it will be both brutally hot and dry, especially in the summer months. Don’t spend too long out in the sun, seek shade and keep re-applying your sun cream. It is also advised to drink at least one litre of water per day, preferably two. It is very easy to get sunstroke in this kind of weather as you will dehydrate faster.
If you plan on spending the day outside: bring lots of water and snacks! Also, wearing loose, covering clothes rather than shorts and t-shirts is more effective in keeping you cool.
