Despite fall officially starting on Thursday morning (you didn't try balancing an egg on end at 9:21am did you?), summer weather continues for a few more days. Thursday's high of 95° came within a degree of the record and we'll threaten the record high of 96° again today, as well as the 95° records both Saturday and Sunday. High pressure ridging aloft more typical of mid-summer is to blame. I'm over it...
