Unofficial end of summer brings no heat relief in US West

Vineyards moved their wine harvest to the cool of night and transit trains slowed for fear that some of the hottest weather in San Francisco Bay Area history would warp rails Saturday, as stifling temperatures and the smoky pall of wildfires marked an unofficial end to summer across the U.S. West.

A rare heat wave has taken hold of the San Francisco Bay area and residents have chose to laugh through the sweat by creating memes and sharing their misery over social media. 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.

With an all-time high of 106 on Friday, it became just the third time since the 1870s that San Francisco had back-to-back triple-digit days.

San Jose, Calif., saw a record at 108 degrees and the mercury climbed to 103 in Oakland, the story said.

Trost says the rail system also has paramedics and air-conditioner technicians on standby during the heat wave.
