Triangle temps to take roller-coaster ride this week

Posted October 9, 2012

— This week's weather will take Triangle residents on a roller-coaster ride of temperatures, from a cool 58 on Tuesday to a sunny 75 on Wednesday and back down to 65 Thursday.

Tuesday will be mainly cloudy and not as cool as Monday, but drizzle is possible in the evening hours with lows in the upper 40s.

Wednesday will be even warmer with "a pretty nice afternoon" in the mid 70s, according to WRAL meteorologist Nate Johnson.

That pretty nice weather will fade away as a cold front comes sweeping through Wednesday night into Thursday morning, bringing a band of clouds.

While Thursday will be cooler with highs in the mid 60s, the good news is the clouds will disappear, giving way to more sunshine. Friday, Saturday and Sunday will be sunny and pleasant with highs in the 70s.

"It should be a pretty nice weekend, especially if you're heading out to the State Fair," Johnson said.

    Why do meterologists and the media in general have to put value judgments on certain weather conditions? There are many of us who feel that cooler days like TODAY are what's "pretty nice" for October! Please just state what the weather forecast without telling us what's "nice" and what's a tumble into ugliness. lol

    I don't know if I can handle these drastic changes...roller-coasters always leave me sick on the stomach!!

    Call me crazy, but I actually enjoy this cooler weather. The Air Conditioner doesn't have to run as much, and even with a small lightweight jacket or sweater.. you are a bit more comfortable. I tell ya what though, this "Roller Coaster" of temperatures is going to be flooding the doctor offices with people with sinus infections and colds!!
