Snow in San Francisco seems as likely as a February heat wave in Alaska. Yet forecasters are predicting that the City by the Bay could see its first snowfall in 30 years.

The winter chill combined with showers expected later this week will force temperatures to drop in the low 30s by the weekend after a long streak of mild, sunny weather here.

That could lead to snow in elevations as low as 1,000 feet, including downtown San Francisco.

The last time it snowed in downtown San Francisco was in 1976.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
