A gray, dense fog dripping moisture has settled over the Bay Area, bringing with it the region’s customary summer gloom. Temperatures are a full 10 degrees lower than average.

Today and tomorrow in Berkeley should start with fog and clear by the afternoon. Friday will bring clear skies, but it won’t warm up until the weekend. Temperatures will not top 60 in town until Saturday, according to WeatherUnderground.
