First Alert: Scattered downpours continue this week

First Alert: Scattered downpours continue this week

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - With plentiful moisture and no significant influence from high pressure - periodic wet weather sticks around through the rest of the week.

Moisture will stream out of Florida and our nearshore coastal waters Tuesday. Downpours are most likely along the Interstate 95 corridor before 2 p.m.; most of the rain shifting southwestward and inland by mid-afternoon.

Severe weather is unlikely, but a storm or two may produce gusty winds to 40 MPH. Heavy rain and minor street flooding are likely with just-about any thundershower that forms.

Through the second-half of the week, rain will be most widespread between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. each day before diminishing back to just isolated downpours during the evening and overnight hours.

Rain accumulations are forecast to average between 2" and 3" through Friday; isolated spots may see more than 5". Scattered showers continue this weekend, but with enough breaks to get some outdoor activities done.

It's the kind of week where the kids sports practices and activities may be moved, and commutes feature scattered rain.

We'll continue to post additional, daily, updates in the WTOC Weather App. Radar is available in the WTOC Weather App as well.
