Coldest Night Since May 20th, 40s!

Usually I talk about opening the windows on a cool night to give the A.C. a break. Tonight I'm going to advise that you to shut the windows to give your heating bill a break.  Yeah.  Take a moment to let that sink in.

The fall equinox is next Saturday (22nd) and tonight’s chill will serve as yet another reminder that autumn is around the corner! Temperatures will drop into the mid and upper 40s inland, near 50 for the shoreline. This will be the coolest night since May 20th!

At the bus stop tomorrow morning, kids may need an extra layer to start off the day!  But abundant sunshine will help temperatures recover nicely in the afternoon.  Highs: 70-75.

Sunshine will stick around for the rest of the week with cool mornings and dry sunny afternoons.  A small warming trend will allow temperatures to return to the 80s later this week.

Rain?  What rain?  The next chance for a shower will not come until Sunday or Monday!
