San Francisco: A Slow Warmup Through the Weekend

After a few sizzling days last week, temperatures took a dive this weekend and have remained rather cool since then.

Warmer air is on its way, however, but it will be more gradual this time around.

A stubborn upper-level disturbance situated in the Southwest will slowly head east over the next couple of days, which will allow warmer air to return.

The high temperature Friday will hit 70 and will bump into the upper 70s for the weekend.

Folks with any Memorial Day weekend plans will be in luck as sunshine and comfortable temperatures spread throughout the region.

Activities scheduled for Memorial Day will be good to go as well as highs remain in the low 70s with plentiful sunshine.

However, no drought relief is expected anytime soon as the region remains void of any strong weather systems.
