The weather, currently.
Tuesday’s weather continues to be very pleasant, and with the sun setting earlier as we transition into fall, I’m starting to accessorize with a jacket or carry a sweater around with me. I spent a few hours at an art fair in San Pedro over the weekend, where I could wear black pants without the sun steaming my legs. A linen jacket was necessary to stay warm, too. If you like to layer, head to the coast.
You might even wake up chilly on Tuesday morning, as our temperatures aren’t moving up into the 70’s until around 9 AM. You’ll have to wait until the early afternoon before we reach a high of about 79°F. It might even be time to put a down comforter on your bed, as lows this week continue to dip. Tuesday’s evening will reach 62°F.

“Hurricane Fiona made landfall in Puerto Rico on Sunday, knocking out power for more than 90 percent of households on the island and bringing some of the most devastating flooding Puerto Rico has ever seen. Early on Monday, the storm’s path veered towards the Dominican Republic, causing major flooding there too.
The storm is expected to move west towards Turks and Caicos Islands on Tuesday and continue to strengthen to a category 3 hurricane by Wednesday.
More than 1.3 million people across the island are without power, as of Monday around 9 AM, according to Power Outage US. The rain is expected to continue through Tuesday, after that, temperatures in the upper 80°F (31°C) will pose an additional hazard for those still without power.
Fiona’s effects are comparable to or worse than those of Hurricane Maria — which struck Puerto Rico almost exactly five years ago. The island was still recovering from the effects of Maria and is now once again under water.”
