SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – The Sacramento heat on Saturday broke a daily record and was the second-hottest day on record in the city’s history.

Temperatures reached as high as 113 in the downtown area as the region is experiencing a scorching heat wave. Saturday was the second-hottest day on record, only after a high of 114 for the downtown area posted in 1925.
