    No cities in the immediate Bay Area broke all-time high temperature records Saturday, but a host of spots set records for Sept. 2.

    Below is a complete breakdown of areas that recorded new high temperatures for Sept. 2, according to the National Weather Service:

    Calistoga: 112 degrees (previous high of 104 degrees in 1998)

    Healdsburg: 111 degrees (previous high of 110 degrees in 1950)

    Santa Rosa: 110 degrees (previous high of 107 degrees in 1955)

    Kentfield: 106 degrees (previous high of 104 degrees in 1955)

    Half Moon Bay: 83 degrees (previous high of 76 in 2009)

    San Rafael: 105 degrees (previous high of 101 degrees in 1955)

    San Francisco: 102 degrees (previous high of 94 degrees in 1991)

    Moffett Field (106 degrees) and the San Francisco Airport (104 degrees) came close to once again setting all-time records, but they both tied marks set Friday.
