Another warm day is on the way Tuesday before showers and thunderstorms advance into the area late in the day.

Highs will approach 75 F Tuesday afternoon before the cooling showers and thunderstorms arrive.

"The wet weather should hold off in Philadelphia until 3 or 4 p.m. Tuesday," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist John Gresiak said.

The wet weather can put a damper on Earth Day events.

Greensgrow Farms is sponsoring a neighborhood greening event where participants will help plant flowers in various locations around the city. While a couple of showers and thunderstorms are forecast, much of the event -- which is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. EDT Tuesday -- will be rain-free.

The showers and thunderstorms can make for a slow Tuesday evening commute as they reduce visibility and create slick roads. Drier air will settle in Tuesday night.

Temperatures will then take a tumble in the front's wake, leading to highs in the lower 60s on Wednesday. A brisk wind will create even lower AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures.

As quick as the cooler air arrives, it will depart and give way to rebounding temperatures later in the week.
