After weeks of lingering clouds and on and off showers the weather pattern is finally switching to late Spring. Details on when 90's could return in my 7day forecast.

After a hard winter, the Bay Area is about to experience a bonafide heat wave.

Temperatures will hit the high 80s for much of the Bay with a potential of 90 degrees in the hottest spots. The NBC Bay Area weather department said records could fall.

They credit a warmer air mass that is just about to arrive to the coast combined with clearing conditions.

So if you can, shorts or a sundress will be the fashion order of the day Wednesday, and definitely grab the sunglasses.

Although the warm weather is nice, when temperatures heat up it also causes fire danger to rise. There is also the potential of flooding from the Sierra snow melt.  It’s been a big year for the snow pack. Yesterday crews took their final survey and found the snow’s water content is 180 percent of what is normal for this time of year.

The warming trend will not last through Mother's Day weekend. Things are expected to cool down with a slight chance of a shower by Sunday.
