Wintery Work Week Forecast

The weekend heatwave is like the weekend itself: long gone.



    Enjoy your Monday! - Rob Mayeda (Published Monday, March 5, 2012)

    After a picturesque spring-like weekend, our temperatures will begin cooling Monday as onshore winds increase and more clouds spill our way later in the day.

    Highs will be mainly in the 60s with 50s returning near the coastline an inner bay. A fast moving weather system will bring some showers beginning late in the evening in the North Bay and moving southward overnight.


    Tuesday morning is looking dry for the morning commute (except maybe lingering showers in the South Bay), but turning windy especially near the coastline with winds in the 20-45 mph range – wind advisories seem likely for the entire Bay Area – with high wind watches probably going up in the hills above 1,500 ft.   

    Cooler, drier air will rush in behind this departing weather system dropping our highs into the 50s for most of the Bay Area. Coupled with the wind, things will feel really quite brisk.


    Winds should ease into Wednesday and after a chilly start to the morning daytime temps will return to the 50s and 60s as high pressure begins to build back in. Temps should continue climbing a little more for Thursday and Friday with some 60s and low 70s possible as we approach the weekend.


    From there, the forecast becomes a little more challenging as the computer models are still debating how much rain chances will arrive midway through the weekend. For now its looking like there will be some showers at least north of the Golden Gate possible on late Saturday into Sunday with some cooling.

    Long range beyond next weekend does look progressively wetter with a deep trough anchoring itself to our west, tossing some periods of rain our way – especially North Bay.
