Storm expected to bring heavy rain, wind to East Coast.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A storm that includes some remnants of Hurricane Patricia was expected to bring heavy rain and wind to the East Coast on Wednesday. The National Weather Service issued coastal flood advisories from Virginia Beach through New England, and small craft advisories and gale warnings off shore. The weather service said the storm could bring sustained winds of up to 40 mph with gusts to 60 mph in some areas and 2-3 inches of rain along the Interstate 95 corridor from the upper Mid-Atlantic into New England.

When all is said in done, we expect to see around an inch of rain in Philadelphia, with lower totals by the coast and higher totals to the north and west.
