A sunny, cold Thanksgiving on the way

Record heat expected for Thanksgiving across Arizona

Several heat records were already smashed by Wednesday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.

National Weather Service meteorologist Brett Albright said there is an anomalous high-pressure system over the area that's causing the warm spell.

"(It) brings a lot of heat and warm air", Albright said. Woodland Hills set a record at 92 degrees, topping the 2005 mark of 89; while Sandberg reached 74 degrees to top the 1995 record of 71.

The temperature reached 96 degrees in Escondido Wednesday, breaking a record set for November 22 in 1950, when the high was recorded at 91 degrees.

Records across Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties saw years-old records shattered by 2 p.m. The mountain regions broke records for the season. But 10 miles to the west, in Ventura Harbor, the high for the morning was 65 degrees, NWS reported.

The NWS said this temperature wasn't out of the question for Phoenix on Thursday - the latest calendar date ever for a 90°F (32°C) day in the city.

Gayle King talks with Stephen Colbert about Charlie Rose firing
Colbert replied jokingly, "Well, you did your job this morning". "But that's what you have to do", she responded. Colbert responded that he couldn't blame her, and commended her coverage of the events surrounding Rose.

The upside, Albright said, is that the heat won't stick around after dark. It's not like the summer heat when the nights are still warm.

However, upper 50s and 60s is still well above average for November 23! But forecasters said the relief will be little and gradual.

Last year, the planet marked its third consecutive year of record heat, with the mean temperature around two degrees warmer than the pre-industrial average, according to the World Meteorological Organization. Some years we get a helping of wintry cold, while others have been almost warm enough to think about moving the meal outside.
