Maze: Summer will be on hiatus for the next few days

It may still be August, but summer weather will be taking a break for the next few days.

After rain moved through Wednesday night, muggy temperatures will give way to cool, dry air by Thursday morning.

“Through the course of the night, the drier air punches in so, by 8 a.m., we‘re looking at dew points in the 50s,” WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze said. “It will feel so much more comfortable when you head out tomorrow morning.”

With a high of 81 degrees and lows in the lower 60s, Thursday‘s temperatures will feel more like fall than summer. The cool weather will stick around, and Maze said low temperatures could drop into the 50s Friday morning.

“It‘s going to be really cool to start the day on Friday, but it‘s just a tease. It‘s not going to last that long,” Maze said of the cool weather.

By Saturday, high temperatures are expected to be back in the upper 80s and it will feel like summer again by Sunday, when temperatures return to the 90s.

Even as temperatures heat up again, Maze said that dry weather will remain, with no rain predicted for the next seven days.
