It is finally going to start feeling like fall; it is probably time to put away the AC and prepare for cooler weather. We have our first frost-watch of the season for Wednesday and our second one next Thursday; it is a good idea to cover up still-producing garden plants with a sheet or paper bag.

Friday will be the warmest day of the coming week with an afternoon high of 76ºF and a low of 55ºF. There will be plenty of slow-moving clouds but the chance of day-time rain is less than 5%.
