Fall came early: Cool temperatures are here, at least for a few days

— The cooler temperatures we’ve been waiting for are here.

A cold front moved in late Tuesday, bringing mild, breezy conditions to central North Carolina.

According to WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner, the fall weather will last at least a few days before summer heat returns. “Get outside today — there’s no excuse,” she said.

Temperatures were in the 60s in Raleigh on Wednesday morning, and they will peak in the mid to upper 70s by late afternoon.

“70s — not 80s,” Gardner said excitedly.

Thursday and Friday will be just as pleasant, with highs in the 70s in Raleigh and overnight lows in the 50s. With plenty of sunshine and no rain in the forecast, it should be a beautiful several days.

Temperatures are expected to return to the 80s by Saturday, but the humidity will remain low, so it will still feel great outside.

Sunday will be warmer, with a high in the mid 80s.

Rain is not expected to impact any outdoor activities during the week.
