AUTUMN BEGINS:
Fall officially kicked off at 9:29pm last night and the weather is following suit! With clear skies and a calm wind, readings dropped into the low to mid 40s for many making it the chilliest morning of the season! After the very cool start, the day looks great with readings climbing into the mid 70s under lots of sun.

WARMER DAYS AHEAD:
Despite it being “officially” Fall, we will see a gradual warmup through the work week with daytime highs reaching into the low 80s, a little above normal for late September. We look to stay dry through the weekend, with our next decent shot for rain not arriving until Sunday night and Monday.

DRY SATURDAY, SOME RAIN SUNDAY:
We’ll start the weekend with a mix of sun and clouds along with warm temperatures Saturday. Highs will top out in the mid 80s, a few degrees above normal. Clouds increase early Sunday as a cold front drops in from the northwest. This system brings us a chance for scattered showers and a few thunderstorms late Sunday morning into the afternoon. Highs remain in the lower 80s Sunday.

NEXT WEEK:
Beautiful weather resumes as we officially enter into Autumn Monday. Fair to partly cloudy skies will rule through Thursday, with highs ranging from the mid 70s to lower 80s.

It will be a very cool start to the day with lows in the upper 40s to low 50s. A few areas of patchy fog are possible, especially near bodies of water. Expect a great-looking day with lots of sunshine and afternoon highs in the mid 70s.

LATE WEEK WARMING:
Temperatures slowly climb late week into the weekend as a more southerly wind flow takes over. We’ll have abundant sunshine Thursday and Friday before some clouds move in late Saturday ahead of our next weathermaker. Highs rise from the mid 70s Thursday to the mid 80s Saturday. Overnight lows also climb from the 50s into the 60s by the weekend.

NEXT RAIN CHANCE:
Our next opportunity for showers and thunderstorms comes Sunday as a cold front moves through. Some heavy rain is possible as the system will be packing remnant energy from Tropical Storm Odile.
