Warm and Sunny Holiday Weekend for SoCal; High Surf Advisory Issued

It should be in the 70s in most areas Thursday, then in the low 80s Friday and Saturday

The long Thanksgiving weekend promises to bring some classic Southern California comfortable weather to turkey and non-turkey eaters alike.

It'll be mostly sunny and warm in most areas through Sunday.

Beachgoers should be cautious, though. On Thursday, there's a high surf advisory in effect for 5 miles on either side of Ventura Harbor through 6 p.m., and rip currents were a possibility there and in Los Angeles County.

Surf in the Ventura area will be 6 to 8 feet in height, with local sets to 10 feet, according to the National Weather Service, which issued the advisory.

"Surf and swell conditions could be hazardous to anyone entering the water today … with dangerous rip current potential," the service stated.

Very strong currents with rip current potential area expected in LA County, where the service warned of dangerous swimming conditions.

Meanwhile, a morning dense fog advisory for coastal parts of Southern California expired at 9 a.m. and low clouds were clearing in the morning.

Drivers should be careful returning home from turkey dinners because dense fog is likely again on Thursday night in some coastal areas, with visibility at 1/4-mile or less.

The low clouds and fog could impact coastal airports, the weather service said.

Highs were expected to be in the 70s with sunny skies on Turkey Day through metro Los Angeles, Orange County and the Inland Empire. Beach areas and the Antelope Valley should see highs in the 60s.

The weekend was expected to see temperatures in low 80s, with sunny conditions continuing through Sunday.
