The weather will roast on Thanksgiving

In Orange County, a high of 81 is expected in Newport Beach, which would tie a record set in 2002, while the expected high of 91 in Santa Ana could tie a record set in 1950, NWS meteorologist Greg Martin said.

Very warm temperatures are in the forecast across Arizona for the remainder of the holiday week and weekend as high pressure stays situated over the region.

Previously, the record for November 24 was 59 degrees, set in 1990 and 2011, the weather service said.

Normal temperatures for this time of year are in the low 60s, the weather service said. Temperatures are expected to drop just a few degrees, but it'll still be about 20-25 degrees higher than the average in many communities.

Next week, forecasters are predicting a week of mild temperatures, with highs reaching the upper 30s and lower 40s.

As for Thanksgiving Day itself, the west San Fernando Valley will probably be the hottest area in the L.A. region, Sirard said.

Friday afternoon, the temperature rose to 60 degrees, a record high, according to the National Weather Service. That's higher than Palm Springs' predicted high of 92 degrees.

Temperatures soared into the 90s from Los Angeles to San Diego and up the Central Coast to the Bay Area on Wednesday, while much of the rest of the state basked in unseasonably balmy weather.

By midday Wednesday, downtown Los Angeles had already reached 90 degrees, breaking the record for the date of 89 degrees, set in 1950.

If Thursday's high in downtown Los Angeles reaches 90, as forecast, it would tie a record set on November 23, 1903, Thompson said.
