Our average high is down to 73 and soon we’ll be losing half a degree a day while we accelerate toward winter. Today’s mid- and upper 70s were a bit above the climatological values as a relatively humid air mass for October hangs on. There’s not a whole lot of change on the way through Friday. The marine air starts to give in a bit as winds shift somewhat, but noticing it on the ground may be tricky.
