( – Temperatures in San Francisco hit 106 degrees today, according to a preliminary estimate, the highest since the National Weather Service began recording temperatures in 1974, a weather official said.

The official numbers have not come out yet, but if the 106-degree number becomes official, it smashes all records for San Francisco, said Brian Garcia, a meteorologist for the weather service.

The previous all-time record for San Francisco was 103 degrees, which was reached June 14, 2000, Garcia said.

The weather service has been keeping track of temperatures since June 1874, Garcia said.
