Weekend looks warm, possibly wet

Posted October 30, 2009

— Look for a warm, damp weekend, WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze said.

Friday's cloudy skies will give way to a generally warm evening. The overnight low will dip only to about 60 degrees.

"The most any football game should see (Friday night) is some light drizzle," Maze said.

On Saturday, warm and windy weather prevails with the southern portions of the state seeing temperatures pushing the 80-degree mark. 

Triangle trick-or-treaters can expect the warmth to continue. There is a small chance for a shower Saturday evening, Maze said.

Sunday is more likely to be the wet day of the weekend, Maze said.

Before going to bed on Saturday night, set your clocks back an hour. At 2 a.m. on Sunday, the country will revert to Eastern Standard Time.

Find Halloween fun in the Triangle, submit costume pictures, get an O-Fishel pumpkin carving template and more.

    you guys at wral REALLY need to get together once in a while and compare notes. Fishel said at 5 next week sunny as his forecast is funny, now Maze is in a daze and says cloudy next week. Come on, did it just change in the last 12 minutes? I bet it changes again 40 times before then too! Fishel said "no confidence" in Sunday's forecast and dropped temps so that if they are warmer, as he said last night, he'd look better than the other way around. Come on, ARE YOU KIDDING US? If all you can do is throw darts at it just let someone else take over! Good grief at the incompetence!

    That's what happens when TV "Meteorologist" become slaves to computer models. Back when Greg was a pup, the TV weatherman (or lady) actually had to analyze information and develop a report. Today, ahh what the heck, just blame it on the computer report and associated "models" ...
