The Bay area's latest heat wave will come to an end just in time for Christmas.
After record-high temperatures over the weekend, an approaching cold front will send Bay area temperatures back to seasonal norms, according to Bay News 9 Meteorologist Josh Linker.
High temperatures Monday will be in the low 80s, with scattered showers anticipated later in the day.
"The temperatures have been about 10 degrees above average," Linker said. "A front will be coming in late Monday, creating some rain chances and cooler temperatures after that."
By Tuesday there will be a noticeable change.
Tuesday afternoon highs will only be in the upper 60s with breezy conditions, Linker said.
On Christmas Day, the morning lows will be in the upper 40s across the Bay area and as much as 10 degrees cooler in the northern counties.
By Christmas afternoon, temperatures will be in the low 70s.
