Temperatures as of late have been running above average with a summerlike pattern prevailing across much of the eastern U.S. We are finally starting to see some changes in the overall weather pattern that will promise to bring significantly cooler weather to SWFL by the middle and end of next week.  A strong cold front will move through the area by mid-week bringing a long-awaited drop in humidity and cooler temperatures. Highs in the 70s and lower 80s with lows in the 50s and 60s look possible as early as Wednesday with a continuation through Friday. Enjoy it, because there are indications that shortly thereafter, humidity will return to the area.
