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

The hot and dry conditions stem from an upper-level ridge of high pressure hovering over the area, which is causing desert air from the northeast to flow toward the Southern California coast, Sirard said. A freeze warning means the temperature could drop to 32 degrees Fahrenheit or lower, and the Weather Service advises people to take care with portable heaters, keep pets indoors and mind sensitive plants.
