A potent storm affecting the middle of the nation at midweek will bring gusty winds, warm air and passing showers to Washington, D.C. on Friday.

The bulk of the rain from the storm will pass by to the north and west of the city.

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

However, winds can be strong enough at times Friday to cause travel delays.

Gusts could top 40 mph causing fallen leaves to scatter and trash cans to tip over.

Some wind-related flight delays are possible as well.
