Temperature records fall as beginning of October is warmest-ever for SF

Mother Nature will see your drought and raise you a heat wave.

The first five days of San Francisco's world-famous Indian summer beginning Oct. 1 were the warmest on record throughout much of the Bay Area, the National Weather Service said Monday.

The City was even warmer than Oakland.

Downtown San Francisco recorded average daily highs of 87 degrees, breaking the previous record for a five-day stretch in October of 85.4, set in 1995.

Five-day temperature records also fell at San Francisco International Airport, Oakland International Airport and in Santa Cruz, according to meteorologist Logan Johnson.

Monday was much cooler, with a high in The City of 72 degrees, but this is still the warmest start to October, the National Weather Service said.

The last time The City had at least five days in a row of 82-degree weather was Sept. 1-6, 2008.

The worst heat wave in recent history was in 1980, when temperatures flirted with the 100-degree mark. It hit 97 degrees in The City that year, the National Weather Service said.

The recent warm weather bodes well for this weekend's return of the Blue Angels and Fleet Week, which was kept away last year during the federal government's shutdown.

Temperatures should be in the relatively cool 70s for the weekend festivities, according to the National Weather Service.
