Warm days will continue in San Francisco with temperatures 10 degrees hotter than usual this month.

Temperatures are expected to be above normal in the Bay Area through the rest of the week, but residents should have umbrellas handy — National Weather Service forecasters say the first major storm of the season could hit the region next week.

San Francisco will be about 75 to 80 degrees, five to 10 degrees hotter than usual, National Weather Service forecaster Steve Anderson said.

Temperatures will be similarly above average in the East Bay, where it will reach the 90s, while the South Bay will be in the 70s and 80s, Anderson said. Health officials advise people to have water on hand and to keep children and pets in areas with ample shade during the heat wave.

Bay Area temperatures will cool slightly this weekend, with a chance of rain Tuesday, Anderson said.

“It will be the first bona fide storm of the season, the first cold front,” he said.

Don’t put away the shorts and sandals just yet, though — Anderson said warm weather will likely return to the region and last all the way into November.
