While Bay Area Cities Swelter, SF Stays Cool

Temperatures in some parts of the Bay Area exceeded 100 degrees today but cooler weather is on the horizon, according to the National Weather Service.

Dublin in Alameda County and Pope Valley in Napa County reported temperatures of 111 degrees according to official figures, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Logan Johnson.

Walnut Creek in Contra Costa County ranged from 103 to 107 degrees, Cloverdale in Sonoma County hit 103, and Santa Clara reached 100, Johnson said.

Even the Woodacre area in Marin reached 99, and San Mateo 93.

In contrast to the intense inland heat, however, coastal areas remained cool due to onshore winds, causing San Francisco to report a high of only 69, Johnson said.

Temperatures will be significantly cooler in all areas tomorrow and a cooler weather pattern is developing, Logan said.

Thunderstorm warnings have also been issued for Sunday from 11 a.m. through 8 p.m. in inland areas of Sonoma, Napa, Contra Costa, Alameda and Santa Clara counties.

Forecasters say fire danger is high in those areas due to “near-record dry fuel moisture,” Logan said.
