It might be spring, but Old Man Winter is going to take another swipe at the region, weather forecasters say.
A very strong cold front, with high winds, is expected to arrive Saturday evening, say meteorologists.
Gusts through Sunday morning could reach 50 to 60 mph and could bring down tree limbs and electrical lines, causing power outages.
If temperatures drop below freezing Sunday night, some plants might be killed if left outside.
