After busting my rear in the hot sun yesterday pulling 12/2 NM sheathed electrical cable from my attic to an outdoor 1/2" PVC conduit. I've come to learn that NM can never be run outside. I hope someone can help me out with this one. Can I leave it as is? Should I rerun UF (which may be too tight in the 1/2" conduit), and connect it to the NM in the attic via a junction box. OR should I run THHN through the 1/2" conduit and connect that to the NM in the attic via a junction box?
