Wild West weather has California baking: The Weather Channel

And what a record San Francisco's was: The city recorded a temp of 106 degrees Fahrenheit, up three degrees over the previous all-time record set on June 14, 2000, and significantly higher than the city's previous record for September 1: 90 degrees Fahrenheit, which was recorded in 1950, reports the AP.

The fire department said approximately 50 homes are being threatened.

The warmth extended up the West Coast and into mountain states, with excessive-heat warnings posted for southwest OR and lesser advisories in northwest Oregon. The city reached an all-time high of 106 degrees (41 degrees Celsius) Friday.

"It's very unsettling", she said by telephone as she watched flames that she said had reached within 200 feet of her house. It was a rare heat wave at a time of year that San Francisco residents usually call "Fogust" for its cloudy chill.

Forecasters also say the heat will be risky to anyone without proper hydration or adequate cooling. In the Sierra foothills, authorities opened a center where evacuated residents could find out if their home was one of 44 destroyed in a blaze about 70 miles (about 110 kilometers) north of Sacramento.

In the North Bay temperatures will be similar to Friday, and in the inland East Bay it could be even warmer with some spots seeing up to 115-degree heat, said Drew Peterson, a forecaster with the National Weather Service in Monterey.

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

Dozens of wildfires in OR were sending up large plumes of smoke, causing disruptions in holiday travel and shutting down camping areas.

A weeklong heat wave generated by high pressure over the West was nearing its peak, the National Weather Service said. Western Washington state expects a sunny, hot and dry Labor Day weekend.

Managers of California's power grid are asking for voluntary conservation of electricity as forecasters predict more extreme heat statewide.
