We will see lows well below the average to start the day on Thursday. The normal low is around 67°. Temperatures will be some 10-15 degrees cooler than this on Thursday morning. Winds will be out of the NNE at 10-15 mph which will make it feel even cooler. So grab the jacket or sweater as you head out on Thursday morning you are going to need it.

There will be abundant sunshine on Thursday with highs warming only into the low 70′s, which is well below the average of 85°.

Friday will be a little warmer but still fairly cool. It will be sunny Friday with lows in the mid 50s and highs in the upper 70s. Should be a really nice day with low humidity still hanging around.

On Saturday high pressure will still keep skies mostly sunny with temperatures and humidity slowly getting back to normal for this time of year. Highs near the coast will be around 80 and low 80′s elsewhere.

Sunday will be more like late October with mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid 80s and lows in the upper 60s.

Tropics remain quiet for now.
