Raleigh, N.C. — The late-autumn days in the 70s are over, at least for awhile, across central North Carolina. Unseasonable warmth gives way to days with highs in the 50s and frost warnings through the weekend.
The average temperature across the Triangle dropped by about 25 degrees from Thursday to Friday, and Friday’s high temperature will be closer to Thursday’s low – in the mid-50s.
Sunny skies will keep the chill away through Saturday before high clouds move in, WRAL meteorologist Aimee Wilmoth said.
Sunday gets a bit more gray and even colder. The high that day won’t get out of the 40s, with the chance for light rain later in the day.
The chance for rain is not widespread, but it is in the forecast daily Sunday through Tuesday with respite Wednesday before showers return.
