Bay Area to get a ‘Fogust’ reprieve as warm spell on tap
EXCERPT: SF GATE
The fog, which comes on little cat feet, is moving on. So says the poet and so says the National Weather Service.
“A substantial warming trend will start over the weekend as a ridge of high pressure to the east expands into our region,” said meteorologist Charles Bell.
“We’ll have definitely less fog than we’ve had recently and it will burn off really fast,” said Bell, who added that the usual San Francisco summer fog will be coming back before it departs for good come autumn.
“When people are too cold, they just want to keep moving and walk right by,” he said. “Then, when they get too hot, they just want to keep moving and walk right by. About 75 degrees is just right.”
But they weren’t in Palm Springs, thank goodness, they said. They were spending their summer morning in good old foggy San Francisco, where it was much more comfortable. Meteorologist Bell said the Bay Area can look forward to warm, clear and dry weather for at least a week. After that, meteorologists are as much in the dark about the weather as anyone else.
