SAVANNAH, GA -
FROM STORM TEAM 3 METEOROLOGIST MATT DEVITT...
TONIGHT: Evening scattered storms (especially west of I-95) will start to weaken between 9-11 PM. A few lingering isolated showers overnight can't be ruled out. In areas that saw rain Tuesday...you'll have a better chance of patchy fog Wednesday morning. Under variably cloudy skies, lows will dip into the lower to mid 70s.
WEDNESDAY: As a mid/upper level low continues to move AWAY and ride west along the Gulf Coast states, our weather pattern will start to be more influenced by Atlantic high pressure from our Southeast...typical for this time of the year. Scattered showers and storms are possible especially during the afternoon and evening. Rain chances currently between 30-40%. Some storms could produce locally heavy rainfall, frequent lightning, and gusty winds. Hot and humid with highs in the lower to mid 90s. Heat index values between 98° - 102°.
THE WEEK AHEAD: No major changes ahead as we move into the weekend with rain chances averaging between 30-40%. If you've got outdoor plans on Saturday or Sunday you'll have to check the radar for updates throughout the day...especially during the afternoon and evening. Remaining hot and humid in the lower to mid 90s. Early next week a cool front will move across the Midwest, Northeast, and parts of the Southeast...bringing in slightly cooler and drier air. Still too early to tell whether this front will move through or stall out right on top of us (leading to better rain chances).
TROPICAL UPDATE: We're still tracking Tropical Depression #2 in the Atlantic moving west at 18 mph. The National Hurricane Center is (currently) expecting the storm to weaken approaching the Lesser Antilles over the next few days. If this storm wants to survive it'll have to battle moderate to strong wind shear and dry air in the way over the next 48-72 hours. Although the more reliable computer models have TD #2 dissipating, others have TD #2 strengthening into Tropical Storm Bertha. Stay tuned...
