PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- The rain has moved out of the Delaware Valley, but gusty winds and colder temperatures are the story for Thursday.

Today will be sunny with highs around 42 degrees, below average for this time of year, but wind chills will make it really feel like the upper 20s and mid-30s, a stark difference from the 60-degree temperatures we saw on Wednesday.

Winds between 10-20 could gust up to 30 mph through day, but Friday will mark a sunny start to March with highs in the upper 40s and low 50s before conditions turn seasonable again for the weekend.

Another round of rain is set to move in overnight Friday in Saturday and will stay dreary and damp through at least midday. Conditions clear out for Saturday evening before a little more sun works to break through on Sunday.

Keep the umbrella and rain boots close -- the unsettled weather continues into next week with scattered showers and mild weather through at least Tuesday evening.
