Hot start to our Fourth of July weekend!

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) -Isolated showers and thunderstorms will develop in the afternoon, mainly south of the Savannah River. One or two of these storms could become strong with brief damaging wind. These spotty showers will cool some of us off from our afternoon highs in the lower 90s, with heat index values near 100 degrees. Most of the rain will dissipate by the evening, meaning your outdoor plans are a go!

Tybee Tides: 0.0' 1:30PM I 9,0' 7:34PM I 0.4' 2:21AM

We'll see similar weather on the Fourth of July with highs in the lower 90s and spotty afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Most of our outdoor plans won't be impacted by rain, but short-lived showers are possible into the evening.

If you are spending the 4th of July at the beach, don't forget your suncreen! Rain chances are low, but "feels like" temperatures will be in the 90s during the afternoon. Please be safe!

Our chance for showers and thunderstorms increases on Sunday as a stationary from to our south begins lifting to the northing. This will not only increase our rain coverage, but also brings in a chance for a few stronger storms on Sunday.

Low pressure could develop along this stationary front Sunday into Monday, meaning rain chances remain high heading into the work week. There's a risk for street flooding, but the overall severe threat is limited. This low will pull away from up on Tuesday, but depending on its placement, we could still see higher than normal rain coverage through the middle of the week.


The low that is off to our west will stay over land through the weekend and is not expected to develop into anything tropical. Otherwise, the tropics look pretty quiet over the next five days.
