It’s official. This is the hottest Thanksgiving on record.
Downtown Los Angeles hit 92 degrees.
The record temperatures are the hottest ever recorded. That statistic goes all the way back to 1877, when records began being kept, according to the National Weather Service. Thanksgiving fell earlier in the month than it sometimes does, but it's also the hottest Nov. 23.
Temperatures are expected to cool down a bit over the weekend, with forecasts in the low 70s by Monday.
We checked in with hikers at nearby Runyon Canyon today. Many arrived early to try and beat the heat.
Joselyn Murillo was there with a small group. She carried a heavy back pack loaded up with water bottles.
"For November, the weather's pretty crazy," she said.
Jeff Jones and Steve Johnson of Sherman Oaks were also out hiking. Jones grew up in Illinois and said he doesn’t miss the cold winters there.
"Everybody in the Midwest is really getting hit by the mid-30s and mid-40s, and some even have snow and rain today and I’m like, 'No, we’re sunny. It’s gorgeous. We’re out here in shorts and Lululemon wear and loving it, loving life,'" Jones said.
