John Scalzi's Weekend Assignment #163: Weather With You

"Weather is a great metaphor for life... sometimes it's good, sometimes it's bad, and there's nothing much you can do about it, but carry an umbrella."

-Pepper Giardino

Weekend Assignment #163: Take a picture of your local weather. This is an easy Weekend Assignment, proposed by Rap4143.

(By The Way)

Weather in the San Francisco Bay Area, can change in a matter of a few moments, from warm and sunny, to chilly and rainy. Sometimes it is a simple matter of what neighborhood you are in, especially in the city of San Francisco itself. If you are along the coast, like near Cliff House on the Great Highway, it can be cold, and rainy, but if you are downtown, there might be periods of sunshine and a warm breeze. On the same day, across the bay, here in Berkeley, we might get a mixture of clouds and light rain... but have to endure lots of wind, while the Concord/Walnut Creek area will be completely dry. That's just life in the Bay Area. Yesterday, Thursday, I happened to be out, running errands, when the clouds and blue sky caught my eye. I thought the reflection in the windows of this building, presented a pretty accurate representation of what the weather was like yesterday. Now, as I watch the late news, the weatherman is saying it will be a nice mixture of conditions this weekend for the weather where I live. Here is what is being predicted for this weekend...

Friday H-70 L- 60
Saturday H-85 L- 70
Sunday Hi- 90 L- 70

ABC 7 Extended Weather 7 Day Forecast

Since we don't have an official "Extra Credit" assignment this time around, I think I will give myself one, and photograph the weather each day of the weekend so you can also enjoy the Bay Area Weather Experience! So, if you like, check back here each day to see a weather update. :)


Friday: Overcast, but no rain. :)

Saturday: Clear and warm, but very windy. 36 MPH. :)
