When will the Bay Area heat wave, Flex Alerts be over? ABC7 meteorologist Mike Nicco says it depends on 2 weather systems


SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) — We all want to know when this all-time record-breaking Bay Area heat wave and flexible alerts will stop.

LIVE: Track real-time temperatures amid the Bay Area heatwave

ABC7 News meteorologist Mike Nicco observed two weather systems that promise to break this grueling cycle.

The first is Hurricane Kay. Kay’s remnants are spreading favorably to torrential rains in Southern California starting Friday and continuing through the weekend. Clouds and rain break their heat.

The second is a cold front descending from the Gulf of Alaska this weekend. As it approaches, it sends back cooling sea layer clouds and land breezes.

These ingredients, along with increasing clouds from Hurricane Kay, are causing our temperatures to drop dramatically on Saturday.

If these continue, Friday will be our last day of heat waves and flexible alerts.
