Record-Breaking Heat
Grips San Diego Area | November 4, 2010

The unseasonable heat that has gripped the San Diego area this week broke some temperature records Thursday, the National Weather Service reported.

At Lindbergh Field, the mercury hit the 100-degree mark Thursday the first time it reached that level at the bayside airport in November since local record-keeping began in 1875, according to the federal agency. The former milestone high there for a Nov. 4 was 97.

In Vista, the temperature reached 96 degrees Thursday afternoon, edging past the old Nov. 4 record of 95. In Alpine, the high was 92, topping the former maximum reading by two degrees.
