Holiday decorations are going up and so are the temperatures out West. Record high temperatures have been set for the past few days across California and Arizona.
Temperatures across the southwest are still remaining above average for this time of year but the chance to break records into the start of the week will be shifting eastward. High pressure at the surface is seen as an upper-level ridge. This allows those warm temperatures across the southwest to move northward and into the High Plains.
That translates to temperatures 15 to 20 degrees above average for this time of year. With late November heat like this, that means more record highs could be set again into early this week.
Temperatures will be spiking early this week before cooling off but still remaining slightly above average.
