RALEIGH, N.C. — Cooler temperatures are on the way Thursday evening, a day after a wild storm sparked tornado warnings and damaged homes and churches in central North Carolina counties.

Thursday's high was around 80 degrees, but temperatures are expected to quickly drop as a cold front slowly advances across the state.

Overnight temperatures will dip into the upper 40s, and Friday will see a high around 63 degrees amid sunshine.

"It will remain sunny from Friday through Sunday. It looks really nice," WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner said.

On Friday night, temperatures will drop into the mid 30s, and frost could form Saturday morning.

"It may be our first frost of the season," Gardner said.

Cooler, sunny weather will prevail throughout the weekend. Saturday and Sunday will see highs in the mid 60s to low 70s.
