Heading into the holiday shopping weekend: Friday looks sunny but cold for morning doorbusters.

Happy Turkey Day! Enjoy the very warm, sunny weather if you have outdoor plans today. Farther northwest towards the Lehigh Valley, Poconos, and Berks County, only a brief shower or two fell, with rainfall amounts of only a trace to one-hundredth of an inch of rain falling and some places staying dry altogether. Nevertheless, it dried out nicely and all roads will remain dry through tonight for the busy pre-Thanksgiving travel rush.

Southwest winds of 15 to 25 miles per hour with gusts to 40 miles per hour will develop from Billings to the West toward the mountains.

Records were also set by midday in Long Beach, where the temperature reached 91 and topped the 2015 record of 88. Clouds will thin by Wednesday night, leading to a cold night with lows in the mid 20s.

Luckily for firefighters, who will be on high alert with the soaring temperatures, strong winds that typically trigger red flag warnings are not expected, he said. That's higher than Palm Springs' predicted high of 92 degrees. Thanksgiving will be dry, with highs in the upper-50s area-wide and lows once again near the freezing mark, but will be the coldest day of the next seven. It's a quick cold shot that will last through Monday, before temperatures moderate by the middle of next week and November could end with some milder weather.

Meteorologists had predicted temperatures would drop slightly Thursday after an unseasonably hot Wednesday that also saw records break across Southern California.
