San Francisco's warm temps stick around for the weekend

It may be autumn on the calendar, but don’t expect cooler temperatures just yet — sun and summer-like weather is expected to remain in the Bay Area through the weekend and most of next week, according to the National Weather Service.

Highs in San Francisco will remain in the mid- to upper 70s for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Sun will also be spotted most of the time, with the forecast reading as “mostly sunny” through Monday.

Though it is hot, we’re not breaking any records, according to National Weather Service forecaster Steve Anderson.

“We’re right around normal,” he said. “We will be warm for the next few days.”

Anderson said the reason for the seasonably-warm weather is the ridge of high pressure settling over us, which means any sea breeze that would normally cool off the Bay Area can’t get in.

The high pressure also inhibits the fog from rolling in.

“It keeps it in the open ocean,” Anderson said.
