Bay Area weather, possible record temperatures

(KRON) A beautiful Sunday across the Bay Area. Even though Spring is weeks away our weather has turned to what we come to expect. Temperatures will hit 70 degrees even at the beach.

KRON4’s Dave Spahr has your video forecast.

National weather:

Cold air continued to pour across the Eastern states on Saturday, while the Northwest saw more rain and snow showers.

A strong low pressure system moved eastward and away from New England on Saturday. This allowed for rain and snow showers to diminish for the Eastern states, but a few areas along the downwind shores of the Great Lakes saw some lake effect snow showers. Snow showers developed in northern Ohio and parts of western Pennsylvania and western New York. The back side of this system allowed for cold air to pour in from Canada and created another chilly day across the Eastern half of the nation. High temperatures remained 20 to 30 degrees below normal for this time of year for the Ohio Valley, the Mid-Atlantic states, and New England.

Meanwhile out West, another trough of low pressure moved into the Pacific Northwest, producing more heavy rainfall for Washington and northern Oregon. Heaviest rainfall was reported at Bellingham, Washington with a midday total of 0.56 inches of rain. Just to the east of this activity, the previous system advanced over the Intermountain West and northern Rockies, kicking up rain and high elevation snow showers from Idaho through Montana and into the Dakotas.
