September was super warm and wet. To start October, we’ll hold onto the warmth but the pattern transitions to a dry one. We will have a couple of chances for showers this week, Tuesday and Friday, but most of the time it’s mostly clear and rain-free. Most days this week, if not every day, should hit at least 80 degrees, while the average high is now falling into the low 70s.
