AccuWeather forecast: Cool end to summer

A trough to the north will initiate a cooling trend today with a deeper marine layer this morning. Temps will cool 5 to 10 degrees today over Sunday's highs. In fact light winds with comfortable temperatures will be the rule for much of the week. Today is the last day of summer but breezy afternoon winds will help improve air quality as we get closer to fall, which arrives tomorrow.

The Autumnal Equinox is when there is about an equal length daylight and darkness around September 22. This year, autumn arrives at 6:30 tomorrow morning.

By the end of the week, more drying winds are expected out of the north northeast. It's too early to tell how strong this offshore event will be until it gets closer, but it looks like we'll have to say goodbye to our fall-like temperatures and get the shorts back out as temperatures are expected to climb.
