Growing up, I always remember that 100 or 101 were the absolute maximums ever hit in SF. According to several online weather sites, we've hit some new highs recently, but nothing even close to 109, ever. Here is a listing of the 12 days when SF temps hit 100 and over, from 1875-2002:

June 29, 1891--100
September 7, 1904--100
September 8, 1904--101
September 16, 1913--101
September 9, 1932--100
September 14, 1971--101
October 4, 1987--100
October 5, 1987--102
July 17, 1988--103
June 14, 2000--103 (broke the old record of 101 from 1961)
May 30, 2001--101
