The weeklong heat wave has been generated by high pressure over the West, the National Weather Service said.

Most impressive is the new all-time record high set on September 1 in San Francisco when the mercury soared to 106 degrees, breaking the previous record of 103 degrees set in June 2000.

Shortly before 4 p.m., the National Weather Service tweeted that the temperature in San Francisco had risen to 106 degrees.

For a city typically covered in fog, San Francisco on Saturday continued to break temperature records during the second day of a heat wave bearing down on the Bay Area.

Sunday night is expected to remain mostly clear and the temperatures will once again be in the low 60s for most of the state and the mid-50s to the north, the weather service says.

An excessive heat warning that was in effect due to "dangerously hot conditions" remains in effect for the area until 9 p.m. Monday.
