Cool week expected following rain, scorching-hot weather

A week after a stretch of unusually hot temperatures, the weather is returning to more-typical San Francisco conditions — just in time for those visitors from Philadelphia.

Temperatures will be in the mid-60s and moderately dry as The City takes center stage with the Giants hosting three more playoff games, this time against the Philadelphia Phillies in the National League Championship Series. AT&T Park is scheduled to host games Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

The weather forecast shows no more rain after about one-tenth of an inch fell Sunday, but temperatures will rise a little from the mid-50s during the weekend, when the high was 58 degrees Saturday.

“But it’s weird because we had 2.68 inches on the same day last year,” National Weather Service meteorologist Austin Cross said. “And this time last year it was a little bit warmer, in the mid-70s.”

Overnight this week, temperatures will likely drop down to the lower 50s, Cross said.

Baseball fans lucky enough to have tickets to the Giants games should keep those orange-and-black sweatshirts handy, with a 5 to 10 mph wind expected to chill the air even more.
