Time to pull out the sweaters and jackets.
Cooler, fall-like weather is in the forecast over the next several days.
“It’s getting to be that time of year,” said meteorologist Mike Kurz with the National Weather Service in Wilmington.
Today will be the last time for at least the next week that the high temperature reaches the 80s.
A high of 82 degrees is expected under mostly sunny skies by 5 p.m.
Colder air arriving from Canada this weekend will push daytime highs into the upper 70s and overnight lows into the 50s.
A second round of Canadian weather will blast down early next week. At that point, daytime highs will struggle to hit the 70-degree mark by mid-week.
Early Wednesday, the low will plunge to a brisk 49.
The normal high for this time of year is 80. The normal low is around 59.
