Keep jackets handy; cold weather persists

Dwell on any warm sunlight that peeks through the clouds this week, because those moments will be few and far between.

This week, temperatures have dropped to the mid-40s overnight and it’s expected to stay that way through Easter Sunday, while daytime temperatures remain in the mid- to upper 50s.

The weather for Wednesday and Thursday is expected to be fair or partly cloudy and barely wet, said meteorologist Dan Gudgel with the National Weather Service.

A weak storm could pass through the Bay Area on Friday afternoon, then break up by Saturday — but it will still be cold, Gudgel said.

Sunday the clouds will increase with a threat of rain late in the day, he said.

The coldest day in The City this year was on January 5, at 42 degrees. San Francisco's coldest day this season was on December 9 at 38 degrees.
