Want to put September in the rear-view window and drive away? Far, far away?

You’re not alone.

Last month was the second hottest September on record, according to the National Weather Service. The average daily high temperature was 104, well above the average daily high of 99.

The average daily low temperature was 78.9, the sixth-warmest on record.

But relief may be on the way and triple digits may disappear for the rest of 2010.

Sunday’s forecast calls for highs between 97 and 102, with a very slight chance of showers as a low-pressure system moves into the Valley.

Monday’s high should be in the uppers 90s, with highs in the 80s expected by Wednesday. The biggest change may be in the night temperatures, where lows Sunday will be in the mid 60s to low 70s. Wednesday night’s low could be in the mid 50s.
