The Bay Area is creeping toward a warm-up this week, but will have to endure more unseasonably cool weather before getting there. Parts of the region have seen their coldest beginning to May this century, and the week starts off with high temperatures expected at 5 to 10 degrees below normal.

Light rain showers and morning fog also will be around before a warm-up arrives with the weekend.

The average high temperature in San Francisco for the first six days of May was 60.2 degrees, the coldest beginning to the month since 1975’s average of 58.5 in the same time frame. It won’t get much warmer until Thursday and Friday, the forecast shows, with highs barely surpassing 60 in the city.

Also, there are no “spare-the-air” alerts in effect for the holiday weekend, according to the Bay Area Air Quality Management District website.
