Freezing Forecast

View Comments (


    Monday looks mild and dry with a mixture of sun and clouds. After a very cold start, high temperatures are expected to climb into the low 60's, right on track with seasonal averages for this time of year.

    The hope of snow is long gone in the Bay Area, but the frigid temperatures will remain through the rest of the weekend, according to forecasters.

    Once again Bay Area overnight temperatures ranged in the 20s and low 30s. That was low enough to warrant a freeze warning in our North, East Bay and Salinas valleys. A freeze warning means sub-freezing temperatures are impending or highly likely.

    Residents are urged to check on elderly neighbors and to ensure that heating systems are working properly. (And don't forget your pets).

    NBC Bay Area's Rob Mayeda says we'll see mostly sunny skies Sunday making for a pretty sunset later this evening.

    Mayeda says the clouds are giving hint at an increasing chance for some showers for areas north of San Francisco starting Monday morning. Early in the week the rain should stay to the North Bay before things turn windy and wet for everyone by Wednesday.

    That midweek system could pack rain rates high enough for some spotty runoff/flooding issues in the usual locations with 1"-2" rain.

    The forecast for next weekend also includes rain thanks to a fairly active pattern that continues to be target the West Coast.
