Temperatures in the East will slide downhill into Friday and the chill will hang around this weekend.
After a front brings clouds and a few hours of rain to the Atlantic Seaboard and Appalachians on Thursday, blustery and colder conditions are in store for the region Friday.
Recent temperatures in the 60s will soon be erased by highs in the upper 30s, 40s and low 50s.
Winds will not be quite as strong as last week's damaging gusts, but west to northwest blusters will average 15 to 30 mph with gusts around 40 mph in most areas.
Power outages and downed trees are not expected, but there may be some minor flight delays due to crosswinds. Fallen leaves will be scattered and blown about the neighborhoods.
When combined with air temperatures, wind and other atmospheric conditions, RealFeel® temperatures will be in the 20s and lower 30s at times.

Over the weekend, the wind is forecast to ease a bit but will be far from silent. Folks spending time outdoors at football games or doing yard work will want to layer their clothes.
By the book, the air coming in Friday into Sunday is not quite as cold as last weekend's chill.
However, a reinforcing push of cold air is likely to follow next week that could set new seasonal marks for cold so far.
