At one point, the temperature reached as high as 73 degrees fahrenheit. The average temperature during the final week of November is 55.5 degrees fahrenheit, the highest in almost 10 years.

The line graph below shows changes in average temperatures from the final week of November to the first week of December over the last five years and this year.
