SAVANNAH, GA -
FROM STORM TEAM 3 METEOROLOGIST LEE HAYWOOD...
TODAY: Areas of fog early this morning... some dense. Otherwise an upper trough to our northwest deepens... while a strong subtropical ridge sits over the western Atlantic. At the surface... a stationary front/coastal trough just offshore pushes inland. Increasing deep layered moisture will bring mostly cloudy skies with widely scattered showers and thunderstorms. With weak storm motions... heavy rainfall and localized flooding is possible... mainly this afternoon and evening. Highs around 90 inland... with upper 80s on the Atlantic shore. Winds northeast becoming southeast at 5-10 mph. The chance of rain is 40%.
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy with widely scattered showers and thunderstorms... especially this evening. Lows in the low to mid 70s inland... to the upper 70s on the islands. Winds southeast becoming east around 5 mph. The chance of rain is 40%.
THIS WEEKEND: The upper level trough to the west and a subtropical ridge to the east will combine to funnel moisture in off the Gulf of Mexico to bring mostly cloudy skies with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Heavy rainfall with some localized flooding is possible due to the deep moist air... good lift and slow storm motions. Highs will be held down by the clouds and unsettled weather... in the upper 80s to near 90. The chance of rain is 50% Saturday and 60% Sunday.
EARLY NEXT WEEK: The unsettled pattern will continue with the rather persistent trough aloft along with plenty of moisture in place. Look for continued mostly cloudy skies with widely scattered to scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs around 90. The chance of rain both Monday is 50% and Tuesday is 40%.
