An area of ​​high pressure will expand across California over the next five days, bringing springtime temperatures to the Bay Area by the end of the week.

A warming trend begins Thursday, but will be slight at first. After dense, patchy morning fog, sunshine should break through during the afternoon, especially in Solano County, the East Bay and the South Bay. A mix of sun and clouds is expected in Wine Country, San Francisco and the Peninsula due to the distant weather system.

High temperatures on Thursday will be around 60 degrees in most of the Bay Area, except for San Francisco and the coast, where temperatures will be in the upper 50s. A few more degrees of warming is expected on Friday and Saturday, and even San Francisco could reach lows into the mid-60s. By Sunday, the low 70s could be inland, with the high 60s near the Gulf Shore.

While most of the Bay Area will likely enjoy calm weather in the coming days, rain will continue in far northern California. The Weather Prediction Center expects 1 to 3 inches of rain around Humboldt Bay through Sunday night.

Some light rain may fall over northern portions of Sonoma and Napa Counties on Friday and Saturday. But notably, higher-than-normal humidity and temperatures will make the weekend feel muggy across the Bay Area.

However, the rain should move out of California completely on Sunday and Monday, leaving the Golden State to bask in the golden sunshine.

The Climate Prediction Center expects high chances of above-normal precipitation around the Bay Area next week.
