The mini heat wave San Francisco is experiencing may lead to more than sun tans – viewers of the Fourth of July fireworks in San Francisco may have could have a clear view of the show.

Diana Henderson, forecaster with the National Weather Service, said skies are expected to remain clear through the Fourth of July holiday.

“Up until about midnight,” she said of the fog staying away. “Patchy fog should come in around then, but if the fireworks go off fast, we might be OK.”

Many previous firework shows were shrouded by fog that had rolled in off the coast just in before the 9:30 p.m. start time.

Henderson said the calm winds and higher temperatures around San Francisco Bay are expected to keep the fog away for the show.

“Every once in a while, it does happen,” Henderson said of the clear night for the fireworks.

San Francisco saw a temperature of 80 degrees Sunday afternoon, far below the 99 degree record for the day. On Monday, The City will cool slightly to the mid-70s, according to Henderson.

By the time holiday weekend revelers return to work Tuesday, clouds will start to return, but temperatures in San Francisco will remain around 77 degrees.

Henderson said by Thursday San Francisco will return to more normal temperatures of the mid-60s during the day. Fog will also return to the area Thursday.

San Francisco fireworks show begins at 9:30 p.m. Some of the best places to watch is along the northeastern waterfront, including Aquatic Park and Pier 39, as well as Crissy Field and even Twin Peaks.
