The weather service station at Thomas Point Lighthouse (point your web
browser to http://SportToday.org/)
reports a sea surface temperature of 61 degrees right now. Thomas Point is
2-3 miles south of the Bay bridge. Last week before the cold snap,
temperatures were in the mid 60s. We are expecting a return to hot and
humid weather next week, with lots of sun so maybe we can hope for water
temperatures in the upper 60s.
