Looking at the winter as a whole so far (December 1- today), this is indeed the warmest winter on record so far!
Here is a peek at the records:
December 1-February 8 warmest starts to Winter season
2014-2015 Average Max Temp: 61.7
2002-2003 Average Max Temp: 61.3

For the week coming up, high pressure firmly builds into the Bay Area resulting in a gradual warming trend. By Wednesday, High temperatures will range from 59 at the Coast to 73 Inland. On Thursday through Sunday, for the third time this year, there will be a series of consecutive days with high temperatures near of record warmth, topping off in the mid 60s at the Beaches, to the mid and high 70s Bay and Inland Areas. And the long-term projection from the Climate Prediction Center calls for more above average temperatures over the next three months.
