Rain chances increase to start the work week

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - Overnight lows only fall into the mid to upper 60s with isolated showers possible before and during the morning commute. Spotty showers are possible during the afternoon, but most of us will dry out with highs in the low to mid 80s.

Monday Tybee Island Tides: 1.4′ 3:08AM | 8.8′ 8:51AM | 1.6′ 3:31PM

Even better rain chances arrive on Tuesday, holding our afternoon highs in the upper 70s. Many areas will see at least a half an inch of rainfall with isolated totals near an inch and a half. Morning showers are likely on Wednesday ahead of a front that will sweep through by the evening.

Fall-like weather returns behind Wednesday’s front. Morning lows return to the low to mid 50s on Thursday and Friday morning along with afternoon highs in the 70s.

Tropics:

Tropical Storm Melissa continues to move east over the north Atlantic and will not pose a risk to land. There is an area of low pressure in the Central Atlantic with a 20% chance of becoming a tropical cyclone within the next 5 days. Our next named system will likely come from an area just off the West Coast of Africa, but this area of low pressure is heading north. There are no tropical impacts expected for the Southeastern United States over the next 5 days.
