LA's pre-Thanksgiving heatwave breaks two records set in 1950

LA's pre-Thanksgiving heatwave breaks two records set in 1950

The record high for Thanksgiving day is 87, set in 1950 and 2014.

Temperatures soared into the 90s across a large swath of Southern California in an autumn heat wave that peaked Wednesday.

In Burbank (88 degrees), Camarillo (92 degrees) and Oxnard (91 degrees), records that had been set in 1950 were all shattered.

In fact, it the high of 87 tied the Phoenix record for both Thanksgiving and November 23, according to the National Weather Service.

The San Francisco/Monterey weather office said conditions were also warm for this time of year across its region, especially south of San Francisco Bay, with many highs in the 80s and 70s.




Wednesday and Thursday are expected to be the hottest days of the week. 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.

The abnormal warm temperatures in the state were caused by a broad, high pressure pattern in the western United States, particularly southwestern, which also saw higher-than-normal temperatures on Thanksgiving, according to Alex Edwards, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Bismarck.

The Carmel Valley, Pinnacles National Park and King City hit highs of 90 degrees, with Big Sur sitting a warm 80 degrees.

Heat records also are set to be eclipsed Thursday in San Diego and Riverside counties, too.

And expect temperatures to stay in that range through the weekend, forecasters say.
