Temperatures will take a dip into the 50s overnight. Expect high temperatures Thursday to crest mainly in the middle 70s amid fresh northeast breezes. Skies ought to stay dry with partly to mostly sunny skies.

With a toasty high pressure ridge governing your First Alert Forecast for this weekend, expect even toastier upper 70s and lower 80s for the days and readings no cooler than the 50s and 60s for the nights. Any shots of cold and frosty air will certainly wait until after Election Day and possibly not arrive until well after Veterans Day. Daily rain chances will hover in minimal ranges before a developing low pressure system, possibly with some tropical or hybrid characteristics, swells them a bit next week.
