At the end of august or first week in September there is generally a noticeable change in the weather, going from hot to warm.

It is most pleasant.

Then by end of October it is still t-shirt weather but it is starting to cool at night so I start carrying a fleece or light jacket around -which normally just becomes something of an obstacle or something to avoid leaving behind at cafes or on trains untill about mid November.

It can rain heavily here at any time of year but we don't often get days and days on end of rain-it normally hammers down torrentially and goes back to blue skies

People often swim till November without being in any way hardy

Apart from Bob's raw statistics the main difference I notice is a drop in unpleasant humidity and much clearer sunny skies as pollution from excess car numbers in August disappears. You can start to see the Alps behind Nice again.

WB,

You make an interesting point. The combination of heat, windless days and car exhausts is well known as a very nasty combination in many places, notably Los Angeles where the resulting smog blights most sunny days. At least in Nice they are making a big effort to improve things.
