SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) -The remnants of Sally will move through the area into the evening. We’ll see some scattered showers and an isolated storm. There is a potential for some of the storms to briefly rotate so have a way to receive weather alerts. The storm threat quickly ends by 8pm but a few showers may continue overnight. It will be a little breezy with wind gusts up to 30 mph possible. A cold front will push south of the area Friday night allowing high pressure to build in into next week. Some clouds may persist this weekend but rain chances remain very low. This will bring much drier and cooler air.
