Temps remain below normal

Temperatures are expected to continue to hover around 60 degrees, 10 degrees below normal at this time of year, said Austin Cross, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service.

The sporadic rain late Tuesday and early Wednesday left thousands of residents and businesses in the South of Market, Western Addition and Laurel Heights areas without power, according to PG&E.

After a long period of dry weather, dust and pollution can build up on power lines, and a drizzle of rain can create a mudlike mixture, PG&E spokesman Joe Molica said.

Temperatures could soon creep up to normal, though, as they are forecast in the mid- to upper 60s this weekend.
