— Residents of central North Carolina can expect to run the heat for one more night and wake up to one more chilly morning before the real warm-up begins.

Forecasters posted frost and freeze advisories across the state for the early hours of Thursday morning. Sunny skies will quickly burn any lingering crystals away, and the afternoon should warm into the mid-70s.

Friday will be even warmer and could reach 80 degrees, WRAL Meteorologist Mike Maze said.

A cold front should move through to start the weekend, and the forecast that far out is less certain. Both Saturday and Sunday could see sprinkles, Maze said, but the weekend won't be a total washout.
