— A chance of rain will move into central North Carolina Saturday night after a day of dry skies.

"Saturday was a blustering day, and we will continue to have those conditions on Sunday," WRAL meteorologist Aimee Wilmoth said.

Temperatures peaked in the mid-60s in the afternoon as a high pressure system twirled away into the Atlantic Ocean. Behind the high lurked a cold front sweeping east across the country that will push into the Tar Heel State overnight.

"We're looking at temperatures in the 50s for our high tomorrow," Wilmoth said. "It will be a sunny, cool, beautiful end to the weekend.

Overnight Saturday, expect some chilly showers.

"Overnight tonight a band of moisture (is coming) that's a little more extensive to our north," said WRAL meteorologist Mike Moss. "But we could see a line or two of showers and maybe an isolated thunderstorm or two after midnight or before dawn for most of us.

"That will be moving out pretty quickly once we get to daylight tomorrow."

The overnight moisture will be followed on Sunday by another high pressure system that will keep sunny, dry skies present through the early part of next week.

7-Day Forecast

Thanksgiving week looks sunny and mild with temperatures in the 50s and no rain in the forecast.

"It will be cooler, but for traveling this week, the weather looks beautiful in our area," Wilmoth said.
