And that was apparent on Wednesday, as temperatures soared into the 90's, breaking several local records.

According to the National Weather Service temperatures reached 10 to 15 degrees above average, SFgate reported. The record for November 23 is 78 set in 1932. It will be cooler than Wednesday - especially along the coast - but still hot and dry.

Sunday's forecast high of 79 could break a record, the weather service said, but temperatures will drop sharply at the start of the week.

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

Temperatures in downtown Los Angeles reached 91 degrees on Thursday, making this year's Thanksgiving holiday the hottest since official record keeping began in 1877. That's higher than Palm Springs' predicted high of 92 degrees.

Thursday's weather: Cold start with highs reaching into the lower 60s
Grab a jacket! Overnight, those temperatures will fall into the 30s for the Northshore and low to mid 40s on the southshore. SATURDAY: Mostly sunny conditions stick around but a southerly breeze is expected to warm us up a bit more.

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

Thousands turned out for the fifth annual Turkey Trot Los Angeles near City Hall as temperatures broke records in the region on November 23, 2017.

Burbank could reach 91 degrees, beating the previous record of 86 in 1950.

But by the weekend the warm temperatures will ease and rain returns.
