— Bitterly cold temperatures moved into the area late Friday, and the cold snap is going to linger across central North Carolina throughout the day Saturday.

Overnight lows settled into the mid-20s before dawn Saturday, about 15 degrees below normal for mid-November. It will end up being the first hard freeze of the season.

Temperatures will struggle to climb much on Saturday despite abundant sunshine. Daytime highs will top out in the mid-40s.

Slightly warmer air will push into the area on Sunday and Monday ahead of the next cold front, and rain showers are possible on Monday.

Behind the next system, even colder air will move in. Daytime highs Tuesday and Wednesday could be in the low 40s, and overnight lows will be below freezing for the bulk of next week.
