A potent storm affecting the middle of the nation at midweek will bring gusty wind, warmth and some rain to Philadelphia for a time Friday.

Temperatures will start the day in the 60s, but will rebound into the 70s.

However, gusty winds are likely to cause some problems.

Fallen leaves will be scattered, trash cans could go flying and a few tree limbs may come down.

Travel during rush hour Friday morning could be rough with gusts between 40 and 50 mph, combined with a period or two of rain. Flight delays are possible and driving over the higher bridges could be a challenge for some vehicles.

The weekend will turn progressively cooler. In fact, by Sunday the weather will be downright blustery and chilly with RealFeel® temperatures in the 30s and 40s, despite some sunshine.

There could even be some accumulating snow in northern New England and part of upstate New York.
