SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) -Temperatures warm to the mid 80s at noon with afternoon highs in the upper 80s. A cold front pushes in and increases rain chances Friday afternoon and evening. The severe threat is low, but widespread rain is possible.

Friday Tybee Tides: 6.7′ 8:54AM I -1.3 3:14PM I 8.0′ 9:30PM

Friday beach conditions: Spotty showers are possible, especially during the morning. Waves will be around 1 to 2 feet today with just a low rip current risk. The UV index will be in the “moderate” category. A southwesterly breeze around 10 miles per hour will provide some comfort.

High temperatures this weekend will be in the mid to upper 80s, a bit below average for this time of the year. Scattered showers are possible Saturday, but Sunday will be dry. Drier air will filter in, so enjoy the less-humid air if you get the chance! Sunday and Monday morning will be especially nice.

Tropical update: There is a 10% chance that an area of showers and storms becomes a tropical system over the next 5 day in the gulf of Mexico. This would bring rain to the western gulf. Otherwise, the rest of the Atlantic hurricane basin is calm.
