San Francisco residents stepped out into a chilly morning Tuesday as temperatures dipped to a low of 49 degrees in The City overnight.

Nighttime temperatures, however, were far from the all-time record low for The City of 41 degrees, which was set in 1983, according to the National Weather Service.

A frontal system is approaching from the north west and is expected to reach The City after 4 p.m., which could bring some modest rain that could possibly accumulate to as much as a quarter inch.

“Drivers should turn on their headlights and windshield wipers,” said Anna Schneider, a meteorologist with the weather service. “Generally at the beginning of the rain is when the roads are slippery and accidents are more likely to happen.”

Over the Thanksgiving weekend, residents should expect chances of rain Thursday night and Friday morning with highs expected in the upper 50s.
