direct seed or under lights for fall veg planting?

I just picked up some seed for fall producers (hopefully) radish, lettuce, pole beans & peas.

I am not sure if I should start them under lights or direct sow them. The hottest part of the summer is probably over. August here is usually 80's at the beginning and 70's at the end, and we often have snow for Halloween. I havent done much direct sowing - will the seedlings germinate and grow faster inside or out?

If it doesnt matter then I'll start them inside.
