AccuWeather: Sunny and cooler today, soaking rain on Wednesday

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Look for lots of sunshine today with light winds and cooler temperatures that the 70s we say yesterday. Today's high in Philadelphia: 68.

TONIGHT: Clouds increase. It remains dry. It's still chilly with a low in Philadelphia dipping to 52.

WEDNESDAY: The morning starts out cloudy. By early to mid afternoon, rain arrives from the west. The rain is heavy at times in the late afternoon and early evening hours with most of the steadiest rainfall centered around the evening rush. A total of .5" to about 1.5" is expected on average, enough to cause some isolated street flooding and slow going. With the sun going down earlier this time of year, poor visibility will add to the difficulties. The high is 68.
