Did you get it correct? Inland areas will see overnight lows dip quickly in the fall while the beaches see their overnight lows moderated by the warmer ocean. The reverse happens in the Spring when the ocean is slow to warm up thus the coast can be a chilly place in Spring when inland areas are warming up fast.
