Copy of Goodbye, summer: Fall weather returns this weekend

Posted September 28

— After a warmer-than-usual first week of fall, temperatures will start to cool down for the first time this season on Friday. Cool weather fans will have to wait a day, though.

According to WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner, Thursday will remain unseasonably warm before the fall weather arrives. "We shouldn't be having warm, muggy mornings at the end of September," Gardner said, referencing Thursday's early morning temperatures in the 70s.
