Temperatures are expected to stay cool for the foreseeable future, as the Bay Area will remain in a chilly pattern in the low to mid 50s for the next week.

The cold air is moving through the region from the north, said Steve Anderson, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, and is just not being pushed out.

 

“We’re just locked into this cool weather pattern, with cold air coming down from Canada and not really letting go,” Anderson said.

 

He added that “there’s no real westerly storm track at this point” meaning those cool temperatures will remain local. There’s no timetable for when the brisk temperatures will move on, as forecasts say we will remain in the 50s for at least the next seven to 10 days.

Bay Area temperatures tend to average about 60 degrees at this point in the year. Our current average high temperature, however, is 54 degrees, showing we’re below normal so far this month, according to Anderson.

The upside to the low temperatures is another chance for snowfall, with these upcoming rainstorms coming through.

 

“People will wake up Sunday morning and see more snow on the local peaks,” Anderson confirmed.

Peaks above 1,000 feet could see some snow, with Mount Hamilton, Mount Umunhum, Mount St. Helena and Mount Diablo expected to see snow accumulations overnight Saturday into Sunday morning. Overnight lows are expected to reach the 30s and 40s.
