Caswell County residents got a bit of an unwelcome surprise as they were winding down their Halloween festivities Thursday night. 

Around 6:30 p.m., a strong cold front moved through the Piedmont Triad, producing strong to severe thunderstorms as it crossed through the county. The storms were predicted to produce wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour and while the front did bring some heavy gusts and lighting, the worst of the worst stayed clear of the county. 

Forecasters are still expecting a few scattered thunderstorms, some strong, to move through the rest of the evening, but the stormy conditions are expected to give way to clear skies and chilly temperatures — with lows reaching the mid-30s — overnight.
