San Francisco itself saw one of the hottest days in its history Friday at 106 but is now expected to recede into its usual cool-and-foggy summer pattern with dramatic temperature drops into the 80s then the 70s.

"Depending on how fast or slow the cold front moves, the hours may change", said Patricia Sanchez, meteorologist with the National Weather Service's Dallas office.

By Saturday, the temperatures will begin rising again, according to Sanchez, to more normal levels for this time of year.

For those hoping to beat the heat, Recreation and Parks Department swimming pools will be open and free to the public Saturday.

Managers of California's power grid asked for voluntary electricity conservation. Weather records for San Francisco date back to June of 1874.

The smoke has also resulted in some hazy and pink sunset pictures.
