Assignment: Predict the 24 hr maximum temperature (deg F) for Philadelphia-International, PA (KPHL)

The NFL season starts Thursday night in Philadelphia, and conditions have been hot and humid on the East Coast. The forecast high there is about 90 F, and then a weak cold front may pass through about the time of the game. Let's predict the Tmax and see if they reach 90, or if possible showers ahead of the front manage to hold down the temperature a bit.

Question: Can you name a couple of ways that rain during the day could reduce the daily high temperature?
