OAKLAND, Calif. - After nearly a month of uncomfortably warm weather, the Bay Area finally got chilly this winter.
So chilly, in fact, that some cities got downright freezing. Gilroy's overnight low, for example, was 28 degrees.
San Francisco International Airport recorded 36 degrees on Tuesday, breaking the record of 37 degrees set in 2011, the National Weather Service reported. Oakland tied the record of 34 degrees set in 2006.
Monday was pretty cold too. It hailed on chickens in Berkeley, Tahoe ski resorts received up to 10 inches of snow, and Cheryl Love captured snow falling on her childrens' trampoline in Lake County.
Temperatures are expected to rise on Tuesday afternoon to the mid-50s with a mixture of sun and clouds later in the day.
Very cold morning across the region with most areas in the 30s or upper 20s. Both SFO and OAK International Airports are only 1° away from their record lows for this date. #coldweather #bayareawx #cawx pic.twitter.com/69ZPdwR8CY— NWS Bay Area (@NWSBayArea) February 20, 2018
