Its starting to warm up a bit but a lot has to do with where you are located. I'm right on the ocean so we get the breezes. As we speak, the windows are closed, the overhead fans are on and I'm sitting here in a pair of shorts with no shirt on. My neighbor across the street is not on the ocean and is using his AC a few hours a day. You won't need wool gloves anymore this season. Bring clothes for weather like you'd find in New Orleans in the summer. This isn't a big dress up town so if you forget anything essiential, you can buy it at one of the department stores.
About mid november, it starts cooling down significantly. Time to drag out the light jackets or layering for comfort depending on how acclimated you are and again, depending on your location in the city itself. Down at the oceanside cafes, long pants are essiential and maybe a sweater. But then, I'll be down there with a light jacket and will see folks from the great northwest sitting there in shorts and T-shirts. It won't take long to figure it out.
