Overnight temperatures in the 20s will rise during a mostly sunny Friday, but only into the mid-40s, according to the National Weather Service.

A few days into spring now, the Baltimore region will continue its cold snap through the weekend as well, with snow possible on Sunday, the weather service forecasted.

Westerly wind gusts of up to 30 mph will make for a blustery day, with temperatures dropping back into the low-30s downtown and upper-20s in the suburbs tonight, the weather service said.

Saturday is expected to be mostly sunny with temperatures in the upper-40s, with clouds rolling in Saturday night.

Meteorologists are still trying to make sense of shifting weather patterns for Sunday, but they are putting the chance of rain on Sunday at 50 percent and the chance of rain or snow Sunday night at 70 percent.

They are also forecasting a 70 percent chance of rain or snow Monday.

Cooler than normal temperatures for this time of year are expected to continue at least through next week.
