Wind damage was reported across the foothills as the storm pushed through.
In the Bethlehem community of Alexander County, a gust of nearly 50 mph took much of a roof off a mobile home.
"It had been blowing hard and rumbling the roof and then, all the sudden, in came one about 50 miles an hour and took the whole roof off,” homeowner Rachel Watson said.
There were also reports of several trees down in Catawba County, and firefighters had to clear one in Newton along North Ashe.
Pea-sized hail came down briefly in the Hickory area, along with heavy rain.
The threat for stormy weather will dry up Friday evening.
Expect Saturday to be much cooler but still a bit breezy with highs in the mid-50s.
Sunday will start off cold, but warm back up into the 50s with increasing cloud cover.
