Weather Report: It’s Way Too Warm, Folks

For better or for worse, it is flip-flops weather in SF all this week

When it’s not 68 degrees or under, some people (i.e., your Curbed SF editor) wilt like the petals of an African violet left on a window sill facing south. And this week we will all be shriveled violets as temperature are expected to climb up to ungodly numbers near the mid- to upper-70s.

While news reports and iPhone apps suggest it’s in the mid-70s this afternoon, the Bank of Orient sign in the FiDi suggests otherwise, boasting a comparatively blistering 81 degrees.

Shudder. Fare thee well, classic San Francisco weather.

That being said, there’s a lot to do in the city should you find yourself free on an exceptionally warm midday. Like today, for example. Let’s see:

  • Dive into one of the best Bay Area beaches
  • Take a dip in one of 15 swimming spots for under $10
  • Grab your parasol and go on a mapped tour of our many varieties of Victorians
  • Head to a Giants game
  • Hang out at the park with these two:

For those keeping track of the serious weather situation down south, Los Angeles County is in the midst of a traumatic heatwave, which is affecting public transit and wildfire safety concerns.
