BAY AREA (KRON) — Saturday started off with a little bit of light rain as the tail end of a weather system made its way across the Bay Area. The biggest cluster of rain reports came from the East Bay, stretching from Oakland to the Livermore Valley. The heaviest were right around a tenth of an inch. The storm system has also brought relief from the heat. Temperatures this afternoon are down 10-20 degrees from yesterday.
Those mild readings are going to stick around for a while. A deep marine layer with increasing amounts of morning fog through the middle of next week will make for afternoon highs from the upper 60s and low 70s by the bay, to the low and mid 80s in the inland valleys.
It looks like an offshore wind pattern will develop late week and produce warmer temperatures going into next weekend.
