OAKLAND (CBS SF) — The warm weather Sunday brought record temperatures to two cities in the Bay Area, a National Weather Service meteorologist said.
At the airport in Oakland the temperature reached 89 degrees or one degree higher than the last record set in 2011, meteorologist Charles Bell said.
The temperature in Gilroy reached 102 degrees, up from the last record of 98 degrees set in 1984. Though records were set in only two cities, all of the Bay Area was warm.
“Everywhere else was above normal,” Bell said.
The temperature in Richmond reached 90 degrees, which tied the record set in 2000.
In San Francisco, the high temperature was 86 degrees, which was warm but still six degrees short of the record set in 1912.
A combination of cooler air nearer the surface of the water and offshore breezes were at least partly responsible for the warmer temperatures.
Monday will be slightly cooler than Sunday and cooler weather will persist until Friday when it will warm up again, Bell said.
Wednesday and Thursday will be below normal in terms of temperature. High temperatures will reach only to the 60s to mid 70s.
