Warmer but wetter workweek in store

Slightly warmer weather will be in store for the Bay Area through the end of the workweek, but rain is expected to arrive in the region by midweek.

The cold snap that pushed temperatures down into the mid-40s last week is expected to break, with high temperatures reaching into the mid-60s by Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.

During this time of year, temperatures normally reach the mid-60s during the day and the mid-50s at night, forecaster Diana Henderson said. Today, San Francisco will only reach 54 degrees, with mostly sunny skies and winds reaching 9 mph.

The abnormally cooler air, though, will not stick around.

“We’ll ratchet back up by the end of the week,” Henderson said.

Rain is likely to return to The City by Tuesday night, she said, and the storm could stick around through Friday.

Henderson said showers will accompany the system that will move through San Francisco, but wind likely will not come with it.

“I don’t see it getting very windy,” she said. “But it is only the beginning of winter; I’m sure we have more storms yet to come.”
