    A potent storm affecting the middle of the nation at midweek will bring gusty winds, warm air and some rain to New York City into Friday.

    The bulk of the rain will sweep through Friday morning and midday, right around the time gusty winds roar through the area.

    Expect delays on the roads Friday morning, due to the wind, rain and poor visibility.

    As of early Friday morning, winds were causing flights to be delayed up to 3 hours at La Guardia Airport.

    The wind, rain and low ceilings could cause also cause significant flight delays.

    Winds can be quite strong Friday. Gusts between 40 and 50 mph are possible.

    Leaves will be scattered, trash cans may go flying and some tree limbs could come down.

    Even though the storm will be a land-based system, it could raise the surf and cause minor beach erosion and flooding at times of high tide along south-facing beaches.

    The storm and its south to southwesterly winds will bring in warmer air into the end of the week, before cooling winds from the west kick in following the storm over the weekend.

    The colder air could bring some snow to northern upstate New York and parts of Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine Saturday night.

    Temperatures for the start of the New York Marathon on Sunday will be significantly lower than they are now. AccuWeather RealFeal® temperatures will dip to the 30s. Dry weather is in store, but stiff winds from the north and northwest are forecast averaging 15-25 mph with higher gusts.
