San Diego's recent heatwave is officially a record-breaking one.

As temperatures continued to soar into the 90s along the coast and even higher inland for both Thursday and Friday, several cities in San Diego continued to break records.

On Friday, Chula Vista recorded a high temperature of 97 degrees beating its previous record in 2014 of 87 degrees. On Thursday, Chula Vista recorded a high temperature of 91 beating its record of 89 set in 1989.

El Cajon, on Friday, tied its high-temperature record of 99 degrees in 1989, and on Thursday it saw a high of 97, which set an all-time high for the region, at least for as long as records have been kept (1899), according to data from the National Weather Service.

In Carlsbad and Oceanside, high temperatures were nearly 20 degrees above previous records, though records have only been kept for those areas since the late 90s and are not from an official climate site.

On Thursday, Oceanside saw a record temp of 98 degrees, surpassing its previous record of 81 set in 2010, and on Friday, it saw a record temperature of 102 breaking its 1989 record of 95 degrees.
