While far from the coldest conditions experienced over the winter, the colder air plunging in will sting a bit due to gusty winds.

Saturday will prove to be the windiest day of the weekend, but a brisk wind is expected to persist on Sunday.

When compared to high temperatures in the 50s, 60s and 70s F from Friday, Sunday will bring another day of AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures being held 20 to 40 degrees lower.

"People with outdoor events that last for a few hours, such as St. Patrick's Day parades, will need to dress warmly," according to AccuWeather Meteorologist Faith Eherts.

"The dramatic change will feel like a slap in the face this weekend," according to AccuWeather Vice President of Content and Meteorologist Trish Mikita.

The March sun will provide some warmth during the midday and afternoon hours, but it will get chilly quickly during the evening. The morning hours will be quite cold as well.

Motorists and pedestrians are reminded that runoff from recent rain and melting snow will freeze at night. Property owners and road crews should keep an eye out for icy spots and make them safe for vehicle and foot traffic.

A weak storm is forecast to travel from the Midwest through parts of West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, southern Pennsylvania and southern New Jersey from Sunday night to Monday.
