Degrees: San Francisco Breaks All-Time Heat Record

SJM-L-HEATWAVE-0901-90

High temperatures Wednesday will be 77 to 82 degrees at the beaches, 89 to 94 inland, 94 to 99 in the western valleys, 100 to 105 near the foothills, 96 to 102 in the mountains and 111 to 116 in the deserts.

The National Weather Service announced that Downtown San Francisco reached an all-time high of 106 degrees on Friday, as a unsafe heat wave shatters temperature records throughout the region.

Ice water stations were set up and dozens of people, many of them homeless, were taking shelter Friday.

"Expect another hot one today", the NWS said, adding the weather could cool off even more Thursday - but still remain very hot - before getting hotter again Friday and through the weekend.

Managers of California's power grid were asking Friday for voluntary electricity conservation as forecasters predict more extreme heat statewide. Tens of thousands of people across the state were without power at various times Friday, though most outages didn't last long.

Tropical Storm Lidia, which has moved over the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula, is expected to send moisture to the north starting Saturday night and lasting through Monday.

Wildfires across the West have worsened conditions for residents in the region.

At 2:43 p.m., the National Weather Service says the city hit 104 degrees.

Wildfires are also burning throughout the state, prompting evacuations and area, road and trail closures. "We've had 14 or 15 heat related calls and the symptoms that have been general nausea, weakness, some have been vomiting", Alameda County Fire Department Battalion Chief John Walsh said. Keep an eye on both air quality and temperatures and stay this holiday weekend.

The heat wave brings heightened risk of heat-related illness, so the NWS said time spent outdoors should be limited.
