Cool temps pair with sunny weekend

— Cooler, drier air arrived in the Triangle overnight behind a passing cold front, and pleasant conditions will linger across the area throughout the next several days.

"We're finally going to see some sunshine for several days in a row after being stuck under the clouds a bit," WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner said. "It will be much cooler, though, especially during the weekend."

Highs Friday, Saturday and Sunday will top out in the upper 50s and low 60s, below normal for early November. Overnight lows will also be cool, falling into the mid-30s Saturday and low 40s Sunday.

"There are lots of events going on this weekend, so if you're going to spend time outside, a jacket will be necessary," Gardner said.

Slightly warmer air will build back into the region during the first half of next week, but the warmup will be short-lived.

By Wednesday, daytime highs will be back in the upper 50s. On Thursday, highs may not reach 50 degrees.

"A big chunk of the country is going to see very cold air by the end of next week," Gardner said. "It will be the coldest air of the season."

    OK WRAL, I have a general comment about your weather forecast format. On the 7 day forecast which is listed vertically at the top of the weather page, for example, Saturday has a high of 58 and a low of 41. However, in the 7 day forecast presented horizontally, Saturday has a high of 58, but all the low temperatures are shifted 1 day, so the low on Saturday is 34. Which is correct? I understand it can be somewhat confusing if the low temperature occurs early in the morning of the next day, but please just be consistent. I'm really not a complainer, and love WRAL weather!

    YAY! French toast season is about to begin!

    Just a note for hybrid / smart car drivers... your cars are too light to move through snow at 10 MPH. Keep it moving about 20-30MPH or with the ice underneath pulling your frame down you'll be frozen in place. I pushed out far too many of these vehicles last year during ice to not mention ahead of time.

    Just for fun, some of the computer models are hinting at snow for a week from Friday.
