It is the end of April and temperatures are running close to the bottom of the scale for the season.
Wednesday’s high temperature was only 59 degrees, 10 degrees below the seasonal average. It seemed colder with raw west winds averaging almost 12 mph and gusts as high as 37 mph. The Wednesday morning low was 34 degrees, 1 degree above the 1998 record.
Although Thursday should warm up a bit, morning temperatures will be close to record low levels again. The record low for April 29 is 33 degrees, set in 1874. The low temperature is forecast to be in the mid to upper 30s in many areas away from the Bay.

In sharp contrast, weekend temperatures heat up with forecast highs well into the 80s and lows in the 60s, once again approaching records, but at the other end of the scale.
