Temperatures soared into the high 70s Thursday afternoon, and the unseasonably warm weather will stick around through the trick-or-treat sure to take place in communities across the Triangle.

"The evening will be mild if not warm, and breezy but dry," said WRAL meteorologist Nate Johnson.

Friday will again be warm, but clouds move in ahead of a cold front that could see spotty showers grow into thunderstorms by evening.

"We could see some potentially heavy storms through the afternoon and evening, but nothing severe," Johnson said.

Any rain could linger overnight into Saturday, but by noon skies should be clear, Johnson said.

The cold front will make itself felt Sunday, when temperatures will dip into the 40s before daybreak and top out around the 60-degree mark.
