Raleigh, N.C. — With a forecast of dry skies and lower humidity over the Triangle, this weekend is a great time to get outside.
A cold front that moved in Thursday night brought lower humidity that will stay through Sunday. WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze said that although August is typically very warm and humid, the next few days will be an exception.
“The drop in humidity that we have today and tomorrow, although not unusual, doesn’t happen all that often,” said Maze.
Maze said that highs will remain in the low 90s before temperatures and humidity spike again on Monday and Tuesday. For the second consecutive weekend, blue skies will be abundant with rain staying out of the forecast until at least the middle of next week.
“Everything you want to do outside, if you require dry weather you’ve got it this weekend,” said Maze.
