Temperatures behind the front will be slightly cooler.  Highs on Thursday will be around 82 degrees, and overnight lows will be in the upper 50s and low 60s Friday morning.

The "cool down" doesn't last long.  A warming pattern kicks off as skies clear into the weekend.

Friday and Saturday both look fabulous weather-wise as we soak up the sunshine.

You may notice some haziness on the horizon the next couple of days as smoke from wildfires in Canada spreads across the east coast.  Air quality has been in the moderate range so far this week, and that is expected to continue through Thursday.

Anyone sensitive to air quality should consider limiting time outdoors.
