— The Triangle is in for a pretty typical autumn weekend, with cool nights and mostly clear skies.

A cold front that moved across the state Friday evening means temperatures on Saturday and Sunday are about 10 degrees lower than they were to end October but just a touch lower than the early November average of 68.

Saturday will see a high of about 62 degrees in Raleigh under sunny skies.

"It will be sunny, cooler and less humid. It will be a beautiful start to the weekend and dry for your afternoon plans," WRAL Chief Meteorologist Greg Fishel said.

A few more clouds are possible for Sunday, but nothing to create precipitation, he said.

A slight chance for showers returns on Monday, and Tuesday – Election Day – could see some thunderstorms.
