RALEIGH, N.C. — Forecasters say North Carolina will see rain, but will experience nothing like the severe storms that tore through portions of the Southeast and Midwest.

The National Weather Service says there’s a chance of thunderstorms in western North Carolina and upstate South Carolina early Saturday. By then, the risk of severe weather will have diminished, but temperatures will fall as the cold front that spawned tornadoes elsewhere advances toward the coast.

The system is expected to pass through the Triad by sunrise, drop rain on the Triangle by lunchtime and bring precipitation to the coast through the afternoon.

Temperatures will drop as the front passes, with highs for Sunday expected in the 50s.
