Lest we think the March sun is all powerful, today reminds us otherwise. High temperatures only climbing into the low and mid-40s were mixed with gusty winds throughout. Wind chills that briefly topped freezing this afternoon are headed back below tonight. And chilly weather will stick with us through the weekend.

Tomorrow (Saturday): It will be another day with lots of sunshine — maybe a touch milder, although how much it will be noticed is questionable. Highs will be mainly in the mid-40s, with perhaps a few upper 40s mixed in. It will be clear and cold overnight, with lows in the 20s. Winds will continue to blow relatively strongly from the northwest, at around 15 mph sustained, with gusts near 30 mph.

Sunday: Sun! If anything, it will be a touch cooler than Saturday, perhaps more like today. Mid-40s should do it most spots. Winds will still be occasionally gusty, from the west and northwest.
