Monsoonal moisture from the south will bring an increased chance of isolated thunderstorms in the Bay Area Monday.
A hint of fog along the coastline in the early morning is expected to burn off, leading to higher than normal temperatures in many places. San Francisco is expected to reach 81. A high of 88 is projected for Oakland.
Bay Area transit agencies are advising residents and visitors that they are on Sunday schedules for the Independence Day holiday Friday.
Fog is in the forecast for July 4th, 2014, meaning spectacular fireworks displays will look like fireworks blobs up in the skies over certain parts of the Bay, depending on where they are in the fog belt. The fog usually moves in around 7 or 8:00 p.m., and fireworks shows are scheduled for 9:30 p.m. and 9:45 p.m. around the Bay.
Thursday will be the final day of our mini heat wave, with clouds and even the chance of rain in the North Bay moving in over the next several days.
More rain is on its way to the Bay Area as early as Monday, and weather forecasters said to expect cold temperatures, hail, and the possibility of snow on the region’s peaks.
The rain was expected to taper off a bit during the afternoon hours, leaving scattered rainfall throughout the Bay Area for much of the day. Temperatures will remain on the cool side Wednesday. The storm door remains open for the rest of the week with unsettled weather and rain expected most days into next week. Friday looks like the driest day on the horizon through the weekend.
