Sites Stretching From LA To North Dakota Experienced The Hottest Thanksgiving


As expected, thanks to an unusually large and strong upper level ridge, Thanksgiving Day became the hottest on record for many sites stretching from Los Angeles to the Dakotas. Looks like Lake Elsinore, CA tied the US Thanksgiving Day record high with 97 degrees.

The NWS San Diego weather balloon measured a summer-like 994dm and 500mb. Ner record November levels.


Prior to 2017, this is a list of the hottest temperatures ever recorded on Thanksgiving Day.

Quite amazing to think North Dakota has been in the -10s this month but several sites in the state witnessed 70s and hottest Thanksgiving on record.

As for the hottest day in this stretch, well that came Thanksgiving Eve when we saw a temperature of 100 degrees in Anaheim. Mighty impressive for LATE November.
