***Evening Update*** Rain continues to gradually overspread the region from southwest to northeast and will continue to do so through this evening. The rain could be heavy at times overnight and while we are not expecting any widespread, major problems, localized urban and small stream flooding could occur in a few spots. The heaviest rain tapers off Wednesday morning but some showers may return by afternoon. Thursday will feature a respite with sunshine and relatively warm temperatures before the next system could bring some more rain by Friday. In the longer range, the outlook heading into next week is for mainly dry and progressively warmer weather!

    Grave gardening: Tending more than just flowers
    "How Does Your Garden Grow" is the question posed by an age-old nursery rhyme. Tony Dokoupil has our most unusual answer: Every great summer garden really begins in the winter, with a ritual of seeds and shovels. But these gardeners -- volunteers at The Woodlands, a 54-acre oasis in West Philadelphia, have an extra challenge each year.
