Hold on to your shamrocks -- it’s windy out there.
St. Patrick’s Day festivities are under way, and temperatures are expected to reach the mid-40s today.
Winds are blowing around 15 to 25 miles per hour, said Tom Green of the National Weather Service, and gusting up to 30 miles per hour.
The temperature will fall over the next couple days, he said, with highs in the 30s for Sunday and Monday.
But predicted snow may not materialize -- at least for parts north of Pittsburgh. A storm forecast for Sunday night now seems to be tracking south of the city, he said. The official forecast predicts half an inch of snow in southern Allegheny County and no snow for northern parts of the county.
Tuesday and Wednesday are forecast to warm up back into the 50s, with rain expected on Wednesday.
