We’re into the cold season as November starts. It was anything but that today. Highs in the low to mid-70s are about 10 degrees above normal for the date. While there’s a bit of a cool-down Wednesday into Thursday behind a weak front, unusually warm weather surges back thereafter. Keep the shorts and T-shirts handy, if that’s your thing.
Through Tonight: It will be mainly clear as any daytime clouds dissipate. Low temperatures will settle across a 50 to 55 degree range in most spots. Winds will be from the north-northwest around 5 to 10 mph, with gusts near 20. Breezes should help keep any fog from forming.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): It will be a late-season winner, with plenty of sun and highs pretty close to perfect — or right around 70. Winds will continue to blow mainly from the north, but may be shifting a bit to the northeast over time. They will be sustained around 5 to 10 mph, with higher gusts.
Third summer: We’re shifting into an extended run of above- to well-above-average temperatures. It should last until at least somewhere around the 10th, and perhaps longer. The city’s last day at or above 75 for a year averages Nov. 2 in our current climate. Last year, the last day that warm came on Oct. 25.
