SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - Monday starts off mostly dry with temperatures in the mid 70s.

It’ll be another warm day, but we won’t be quite as hot with highs near 90 degrees. We will still feel like the lower triple digits during the afternoon, but this will likely be below the criteria for another Heat Advisory.

Monday Tybee Tides: 0.4′ 10:04AM I 6.8′ 4:19PM I 1.3′ 10:55PM

Showers and thunderstorms begin to build shortly after lunchtime, with downpours likely during the midafternoon into the evening. These downpours will include lightning and brief gusty wind along with the chance to cause temporary flooding during the afternoon/evening commute.

Plan on rain for Tuesday as well. Showers and thunderstorms increase in coverage during the afternoon and evening with highs in the low to mid 80s. Recurring heavy rain remains the biggest threat through the middle of the work week as this active pattern continues through the work week. Just over the next three days, many communities will likely see 2-3 inches of rain with locally higher amounts.

The threat for flooding increases throughout the week as accumulations build on each other after higher-than-normal daily rain chances. It is also fair to note that these storms will have the potential to also produce brief damaging wind. The good news is that the increased rain chances this week will assist in dropping temperatures below average, with highs in the 80s likely starting on Tuesday into the weekend.

Tropical Update:

There are not expected to be any areas of concern across the Atlantic Basin for at least the next five days. Stay tuned for updates! Tropical activity will pick up as we progress through August.
