Sunny, mild and dry with highs near 75 Thursday; heat returns for weekend

The feel of fall is in the air again Thursday with a crisply cool start in the 50s and even some upper 40s to get you energized for what will be a sunny and comfortable day.

FOX 5's Sue Palka says afternoon temperatures Thursday top out in the mid-70s so maybe you can finally open those windows!

Soak up this fall sampler quickly because our last weekend of summer heats back up into the 90s!
