You may get some relief from the heat as you are on the coast. Weather is always unpredictable. A decent rain Pancho that will cover your pack should be all you need. A hat and sunscreen. I doubt you will need a sleeping bag unless you get cold very easily. I walked in late September until about November 1 and all I had was a silk sleep sack. It did get cold in the Albergues towards the end and a few nights a slept in all my clothes. I doubt you will have this issue. I would also recommend bringing a light fleece shirt or jacket in case it does get chilly at night. Bring less rather than more. If you find you need something you can always buy it along the way. Keep your pack as light as possible. The old saying if you are not 100% sure you will need it don't take it. It is a beautiful camino and you will meet lots of really great pilgrims along the way.
