After a spike to springlike temperatures at the end of the week, Sunday will turn out colder but bright for St. Patrick's Day festivities across Boston.

Be sure to grab jackets, hats and gloves before heading to the city's parade early in the afternoon.

Following the return of cooler weather to start the weekend, Sunday will feel like a typical March day in Boston.

Temperatures are expected to reach 42 F, and a brisk wind may hold AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures to or below the freezing mark.

Abundant strong March sunshine will help to take the edge off the chill.
