This kind of weather pattern can often make for hum-drum forecasts, but we are starting to see a little more change on the horizon.
Friday and the weekend look like fantastic Fall days for whatever you have going on: Football Friday high school games look great: fair & comfortably cool. You can click the Football Friday link for some specific game forecasts.

Just beyond the weekend on the edge of our Seven Day Forecast, we see signs of some rain. That rain will blow in ahead of a fairly strong cold front Tuesday and Wednesday; behind the front, temperatures take a nose dive!
