Bay Area temperatures are set to rise this week - here’s when it’ll be warmest

2 months ago San Francisco Chronicle

The sun is again shining over the Bay Area after a string of historic storms, and after a chilly weekend, most of the region will also see temperatures return to near normal this week.

Following unseasonably cool temperatures on Saturday, some Bay Area cities crept closer to average Sunday, with highs in the mid- to upper 50s. Conditions were windy overnight and could still be gusty Monday morning, with a wind advisory in effect.

Wind speeds will gradually decrease throughout Monday, but the ocean tides will still be unsettled.

Wind advisory for parts of the Bay Area until 7 a.m. Monday.

Last of the king tides

Monday will be the last of the king tides for this month. High tide will be at 12:01 pm and pose another risk for flooding for coastal residents along the Pacific Coast, from Sonoma County to Santa Cruz County. Low tide will occur at 6:44 pm, with a height of -1.38 feet. Boaters may have an arduous time charting through shallow water.

Coastal flood advisory until Monday afternoon as king tides impact parts of the Bay Area.

Sunny skies with a warm-up

Sunshine will persist this week, and temperatures in San Francisco and most of the Bay Area will hover around average through Wednesday. However, North Bay valleys could turn even warmer starting Monday. Valleys can see a larger temperature swing from morning to the afternoon, mainly because of their landform.

Generally, warm air rises, cold air sinks. However, valley warming occurs when air goes down the mountain, the air warms and dries out.

Valley warming occurs when air goes down the mountain, warms and dries out.

This process is called adiabatic heating. As the air descends, the pressure increases, and that volume of air compresses, resulting in an increase in temperature. That’s why the valley is warmer than the rest of the Bay Area.

Conversely, that’s why valleys get much colder than the surrounding region at night. Afternoon temperatures will be more of the same until Wednesday, with a warm-up starting Thursday.
