Raleigh, N.C. — After a mostly clear and sunny in the Triangle, Sunday will welcome cool temperatures from second cold front that passed through central North Carolina on Saturday, according to WRAL meteorologist Aimee Wilmoth.
The first of two cold fronts moved through late Friday, which ushered in mostly sunny skies and low humidity on Saturday.
Temperatures reached the low 80s Saturday afternoon and will eventually drop into the mid 50s by the evening hours.
A second cold front passed through the Triangle Saturday around 7 p.m. but quickly turned to clear skies around 10 p.m.
"Just a couple of hours, mainly in our northeastern counties, and we'll be done with the rain for the weekend," Wilmoth said.
Sunday will welcome lows in the 40s and highs in the upper 60s to about 70 degrees with mostly clear skies.
“It will be much cooler Sunday morning compared to today,” Wilmoth said. “The cooler air is moving down from the north, so you’ll be cooling off within the next couple of hours.”
