SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - Wednesday morning starts out mild with temperatures in the mid 70s for many of us at daybreak. There will be a light westerly breeze of 5 to 10 miles per hour, which will provide some ventilation throughout the day. There won’t be any big weather issues for kids waiting at the bus stop!

Temperatures climb to the lower 90s by lunchtime with afternoon highs in the mid to upper 90s. Make sure to stay hydrated if you plan to spend much time outside, heat index values will be over 100 degrees during the afternoon. Instability increases Wednesday afternoon, which will assist in the development of isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms.
