San Francisco: Dry Skies, Typical Temperatures Provide No Drought Relief

In typical Bay Area fashion, morning clouds will break and make way for sunny skies in the afternoons. With no projected rainfall in the immediate forecast, skies will be dry and partly cloudy.

Temperatures will be on a slow-developing warming trend into midweek when they could reach into the mid-70s.

Overnight lows will stay consistent, hovering in the upper 50s. Night skies will remain mostly clear.

The lack of rainfall will not provide any relief efforts to the area as the state continues to be plagued by drought. According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, nearly 60 percent of California is classified in the worst drought category.

By midweek, offshore seas will turn rough as a result of Hurricane Marie, which continues to strengthen.

Another growing concern for the state is the amount of wildfires that continue to churn through massive areas of land. As fire personnel have worked tirelessly fighting the blazes, many of the large fires have been nearly 100 percent contained.

The Eiler Fire in the northern region of the state has burned over 32,000 acres but has been brought to 97 percent containment according to CalFire.
