With the two-day celebration fast approaching, SF Pride has announced the five Community Grand Marshals and one Lifetime Achievement Grand Marshal for 2023.
Pride celebrations get underway starting Friday and we will find our marine layer returning in the morning, creating cool and cloudy conditions first thing. Sunshine will eventually emerge around lunchtime, giving us an a bright afternoon before the clouds return starting around 5 p.m..
It is pretty much an identical forecast for Saturday with morning clouds giving way to afternoon sunshine.
For the Pride Parade in San Francisco on Sunday, expect a cool and foggy start with warming temperatures and increasing sunshine as the parade goes on. Each afternoon we will have highs in the low 60s.
So how should you dress? Before 11 a.m. you'll need warm clothes underneath our foggy sky. Between 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. the sun pops out and the layers will come off. After 4 p.m. it's windy and we cool off. Your layers will be your best friend again. Good luck fitting all your clothes in a fanny pack as you party!
