SF Breaks 128 Year Old Heat Record
Last week San Francisco saw above-average temperatures due to offshore winds pushing warm air over from the inland valleys. The City experienced 3 days in a row of unusually high temperatures. It was in the low 90s Thursday through Saturday, October 15-17.
Even more impressively, SFGate reported that on Friday, October 16, a new record was set; the lowest temperature that day was 69 degrees, which smashed the previous record set in 1892. The 128 year record for the low temperature for the date was an amazingly 5 degrees lower at 64 degrees.
Normally, San Francisco weather dips at night, but it stayed in the 70s overnight and reached a low of 69 degrees at 6:43 am on Friday, setting the new record.
