    Fall officially began at 3:02 p.m. Friday, but Mother Nature did not get that memo!  It will continue to feel like summer through this weekend into most of next week.  The long-range forecast does show a possible cold front, but that is nearly a week away and subject to change.  Temperatures will be warm and muggy overnight with lows by Saturday morning ranging from the upper 60s north of I-10 to the upper 70s at the coast.
