The onset of an autumn warm spell that should make for a toasty Thanksgiving delivered a couple of record high temperatures to the San Diego area Tuesday, the National Weather Service reported.
Thermometer readings topped out Tuesday afternoon at 73 in the Palomar Mountain area, exceeding the prior Nov. 21 milestone of 72, set in 1962; and 85 in Campo, topping the old high mark of 82, logged in 1995.
As of midday, temperatures were five to 15 degrees above what they had been just 24 hours earlier, meteorologists said. Among the notable highs were 89 in the Miramar area and 78 at Lindbergh Field.
The unseasonably sultry conditions will continue Wednesday and Thursday in advance of a gradual cooling trend expected to kick in Friday, according to forecasters.
