Last Day of Summer?
Today is the last astronomical day of summer as the Autumnal Equinox occurs Monday morning at 3:50am. It will certainly feel like summer this afternoon with temperatures topping out 7-degrees above average. A front moves through Monday night and a passing shower is within the realm of possibility tomorrow evening. We'll cooldown for a couple of days behind the front Tuesday and Wednesday followed by another warm surge later in the week.

There's not too many ways to spin this forecast. The main takeaway is for a very warm and not fall-like week ahead. We're graced by a cool frontal passage Monday night which will take the warm edge off temperatures for at least one day, and optimistically two days. A stray shower is not out of the question tomorrow night.
Another front makes a run Thursday afternoon, but is deflected by an expanding upper level heat ridge. Temperatures return to the seasonably warm category Thursday, if not downright hot by some standards. It just depends on who you ask. The aforementioned upper level ridge isn't going anywhere anytime soon keeping the excessively warm and dry regime fully engaged.
