SAN FRANCISCO (BCN) — Four Bay Area locations recorded record high temperatures Sunday, National Weather Service officials said.
In downtown San Francisco, the temperature reached 81 degrees, two degrees higher than the record set in 1954.
At the Oakland Museum of California, the high temperature today was 83, breaking the record of 78 degrees set in 1977, forecaster Diana Henderson said.
In Salinas, the temperature reached 85 degrees, which broke the record of 81 degrees set last year.
At Moffett Federal Airfield in unincorporated Santa Clara County, the temperature peaked at 84 degrees, one degree higher than the record set in 1954.
A ridge of high pressure and a breeze from the east were a couple of reasons for the heat, Henderson said.
Today will be a little cooler. The forecast for San Francisco is 78 degrees. In Oakland it’s forecast to be 83 degrees and in Santa Rosa the forecast is for 83.
The Bay Area will be 10 to 15 degrees cooler on Wednesday and Thursday, Henderson said.
The temperature in San Francisco is expected to reach only 62 degrees. In Oakland the high temperature is forecast to be 67 degrees and in Concord the high temperature is forecast to be 69 degrees.
Rain may come to the Bay Area Friday.
