Weather reversal: From wet and cold to drier, warmer this weekend

— A weather reversal is on the way for the weekend, according to WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze.

"We'll see the rain departing and sunshine gradually returning," Maze said. "We'll also see the wintry temperatures move out in favor of warmer days."

Saturday will start out cloudy with some spotty drizzle and mist, but a southwesterly wind will blow out the last of the chill by mid-day, Maze said.

"The majority of the day will be gray but dry, with highs in the upper 50s to lower 60s," he said.

Sunday is aptly named, as the forecast calls for mostly clear skies and the return of the sun.

That pattern repeats through the beginning of the work week, with temperatures climbing into the mid-70s by Wednesday, Maze said.

Friday saw more than an inch of rain fall in Raleigh, Durham and Fayetteville. It will be another week before a chance for rain creeps back in to the Triangle.
