This is my first growing season in raised beds. I noticed this spring that soil warmed much faster then the ground. What can I expect this winter. Will it remain warmer, or will it actually be colder, like growing in pots?

Once it gets cold enough the raised bed won't help you much as far as warm soil goes until spring. Unless you use a hoop house over the bed to extend your growing season a few weeks or yo get a few weeks early start in the late winter.
