San Diego Breaks 103-Year-Old Heat Record

San Diego has broken a 103-year-old daily temperature record but a winter heat spell may be easing.

While the rest of the nation shivered Tuesday, Southern California had highs in the 80s.

San Diego's 80 beat the 1910 record of 76. Lake Elsinore's 81 also snapped a 1910 record by a degree.


Chula Vista and El Cajon also broke records and Ramona tied. Elsewhere, UCLA's 82 degrees beat the 79 set in 1976 and Camarillo Airport's 82 was a degree over the 1968 record.

The National Weather Service says low pressure's moving in Wednesday, lowering temperatures a few degrees and bringing clouds and a chance of nighttime sprinkles. There's another chance of rain on Friday.
