    Remnants of Tropical Storm Karen will give the Philadelphia region a soaking on Monday.

    The rain will begin to fall in the Philadelphia region at 3 p.m. on Monday and last until around 11 p.m. NBC10's Brittney Shipp says the heaviest rainfall will occur around 6 p.m. during the commute home from work.

    Shipp says to expect 1 to 1.5 inches of rain, localized flooding and gusty winds.
