After spending the first week of the month well below normal, temperatures will spring well into the 40s this weekend and could reach the 60s Tuesday around Philadelphia.

Only a slight cooling trend is in store for Sunday.

The warmer weather will allow many folks to get outside and enjoy some fresh air.

After the warm day on Tuesday, colder weather will return Wednesday into Friday. A storm may highlight March's mood swing with a chance of snow and rain Wednesday and Thursday.

Don't forget to turn your clocks ahead one hour before going to bed Saturday night.
