Cold, but not freezing, temps to hit SF

Freezing temperatures could sweep parts of the Bay Area Thursday night and into the weekend, but San Francisco will likely escape the weather’s cold clutches thanks to the protection of the Bay shoreline and ocean.

Weather officials expect temperatures in The City to drop to a low of 40 degrees Thursday night, but may be as warm as 45 or 46 degrees, according to Scott Rowe, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

By comparison, inland spots in the Bay Area could see temperatures drop to as low as the upper 20s.

Meanwhile, San Francisco is on track to see one of its driest Decembers.

Between Dec. 1 and Thursday, just 0.15 inches of rain has been recorded in The City, making it the 11th driest December to date since officials began tracking San Francisco’s weather in 1850. A “normal” December in The City would see about 3 inches of rain by this point in the month, Rowe said.

Possible light rain could fall on Christmas Day, but otherwise the days will continue to be dry.

“Even if we do get precipitation, still a rather dry december is expected through Christmas at least,” Rowe said.
