Record high Thanksgiving weather bakes Southern California


Temperatures Friday morning will start in the mid-30s with almost calm winds, which should be almost ideal conditions for frost to form by daybreak. The rain was steadiest south and east of the Interstate 95 corridor, where a half inch or more of rain fell closer to the Jersey Shore. "Stay hydrated. It's going to be very dry". Nevertheless, it dried out nicely and all roads will remain dry through tonight for the busy pre-Thanksgiving travel rush. Southwesterly winds gusting to about 25 miles per hour will shift to the northwest late in the day as a cold front passes over Denver and the Front Range.

The mercury began rising again Wednesday morning and by afternoon temperatures were well above normal seasonal averages.

After a frosty start, Acadiana will get to enjoy another sunny and seasonably cool day, but afternoon temperatures will be milder as compared with Thanksgiving. It will also be a frigid evening with overnight lows in the mid-20s to lower 30s.

THANKSGIVING OUTLOOK: Thanksgiving Day will be dry, sunny, and cold. High: Mid-upper 40s. That's higher than Palm Springs' predicted high of 92 degrees. Friday will be breezy and milder; great weather for those doing some holiday shopping. Behind the system, a cooler air mass will drop temperatures. A shower or two may precede its passage later in the day, but Saturday will still probably be the better weekend day in terms of sunshine and temperatures. A few batches of snow showers develop over the central and northern mountains with only about an inch or less of accumulation.
