A series of cold fronts moving through the Northeast will usher cooler air across the Philadelphia area for the weekend.

The first of these cold fronts moved through Friday with gusty winds and caused flight delays at Philadelphia International Airport.

These winds will subside by Saturday; however, another cold front is setting up to move through Saturday night, bringing a chilly northerly breeze with it.

While winds are not expected to be as strong with this second front, the chilly breeze behind it will make the RealFeel® temperatures stay in the mid-40s through much of Sunday.
