SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - A stronger storm system passes well to our north over the next 24 hours, sending a cold front through the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry.

Breezy winds average between 10-15 MPH Tuesday, under a partly to mostly cloudy sky. This breeze will help transport more moisture into our area. It may feel a bit more humid.

Sprinkles and brief, light, showers are possible before 3 p.m. The greatest chance of seeing any rain before Tuesday evening is well west of Interstate 95.

A much greater shot at getting much needed rain arrives Tuesday evening.

Rain will be most widespread inland between 5 and 9 p.m. Showers and a few storms gradually shift to an area stretching from Waycross to Savannah and Beaufort, South Carolina, between 7 and 11 p.m.

Communities in Glynn and McIntosh counties will not have rain chances peak until mid-evening. Lighter rains may linger into the wee hours of Wednesday morning along the coast.

You can track rain as it moves in and get any updates to the First Alert Forecast with the WTOC Weather App.

A few thunderstorms may produce brief heavy rain, breezier winds and occasional lightning.

Even total rain accumulations between Tuesday morning and Wednesday morning will average between one-quarter and three-quarters of an inch northwest of Savannah.

Behind the overnight cold front, we're waking up to a mostly sunny sky, chilly temperatures and a gusty breeze Wednesday.

A frost is possible away from the beach Thursday and Friday mornings.
