First Alert Weather Day: Scattered strong storms expected this afternoon


Sunday brings a returned threat of scattered strong thunderstorms, capable of producing frequent lightning, gusty winds and small hail.

The chance of scattered showers and storms increases across the entire area during the early afternoon hours; primarily after 2 p.m. Once developed, scattered storms will linger through early evening; gradually tapering off after sunset.

If you have outdoor plans between 2 and 8 p.m., have a back-up plan and when “thunder roars, move indoors.”

Coverage of rain will remain scattered. Some communities will get soaked, while others see little. As of this forecast, the greatest risk of strong storms lies between I-95 and a rough line extended from Barnwell, to Statesboro, down to Waycross.

Do not cancel Sunday afternoon and evening outdoor plans, but remain aware that weather may drive your festivities inside for a time. Stay ahead of the rain with radar, hour-by-hour forecasts and updated from the First Alert Forecast Team on the WTOC Weather App.
