Fall begins in Buffalo at 4:02 p.m. Friday.
But this week will feel a lot more like July.
Daytime temperatures in the 80s are expected every day through next Sunday, except for a high of 78 degrees on Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service forecast.
AccuWeather, which projects forecasts out even further, calls for temperatures to stay in the 70s and low 80s through Thursday, Sept. 28.
Sunny skies are also forecast for the balance of the week, except for a 30 percent chance of showers between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Tuesday, forecasters said.
Overnight lows will also stay about 10 degrees warmer than normal. They'll be in the low 60s.
A sustained ridge of high pressure is responsible for bringing the back-to-back weeks of warmer than average days to the Buffalo Niagara region.
The average high for today's date is 70 degrees.
