Area in for weekend of warm weather

It’s time to head to the beach as winds should die down as temperatures climb up Friday and Saturday in a welcome break from a cold week.

Temperatures should reach into the upper 60s in San Francisco and the low 70s on the Peninsula today, according to the National Weather Service. On Friday, temperatures should climb to the mid-70s in The City and mid-80s on the Peninsula, according to the service. It will stay sunny and warm with only light winds Saturday.

“It’s summertime in a hurry,” meteorologist David Soroka said. “A strong high-pressure ridge over eastern Pacific is going to move eastward and hang over California through a good part of the weekend. The whole state is getting nice and warm.”

Hot days will not mean warm nights, however, as temperatures will swing back down to lower 50s Friday and Saturday nights, Soroka said.

The nice weather won’t last long as temperaturesare expected to begin cooling off starting Sunday. Next week, temperatures will settle back at a normal mid-April range of mid-60s, according to Soroka.

He said last year, temperatures at this time averaged around 64 degrees in San Francisco. The last heat wave that came through the Bay Area in mid-April, hitting 90 degrees, was in 1989, he said.
