AccuWeather forecast: Welcome to fall

The first day of fall will be a pleasant one with sunny skies and comfortable temperatures. Some patchy is at the coast this morning, but sunny skies will be the rule this afternoon. A seasonable weather pattern lasts through midweek, then temps warm a bit Friday with the passage of a trough to the north.

Saturday a warm-up ensues with breezy offshore winds, low relative humidity. Highs will be in the 80s and 90s to start the weekend but even hotter & drier weather arrives Sunday. Highs will soar into the 90s & 100s by Sunday. These drying winds & heat look to last into next week. A reversal of the winds, out of the south will bring a cooldown, but perhaps not until September 30.

A large northwest swell will arrive late Thursday bringing increased wave heights breaking near the shoreline & rip currents. With the hot weather, beachgoers are advised to use caution.
