FROM STORM TEAM 3 CHIEF METEOROLOGIST KRIS ALLRED...
Record-Warmth Ends the Weekend & Rain Begins Christmas Week
To say it has been warm this weekend is an understatement. It has actually been very warm. Savannah has set record highs on both Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday, we hit 82. Then today, we hit 83 degrees.
Well, this record-warmth is coming to an end.
Tonight, a storm system is approaching from the west. Clouds will increase, and there will be a slight chance of rain showers. With south winds, our temperatures will stay very warm overnight. Most of us will only drop to the mid to upper 60s. Areas of fog will also be possible.
On Monday, the storm system will finally move into the area. Rain showers will be likely, and the rain could be heavy at times. A few thunderstorms could also be embedded within the rain. Winds could be gusty at times. The day will start off warm, and most of us will see highs reach the lower to mid 70s. But with the storm system pushing through, it will turn colder in the afternoon and temperatures will begin to drop.
On Monday night, expect more showers and possibly a few thunderstorms. Late at night, skies will begin to clear and temperatures will drop. It will turn much colder with lows dropping to the upper 40s.
On Christmas Eve Day, skies will be mostly sunny, and highs will only reach the upper 50s.
On Christmas Eve, it will turn even colder. Most of us will drop below freezing with lows near 30 degrees under clear skies. This is Santa's ideal weather by the way!
On Christmas Day, it will be the coldest day of the week. Highs will only top out in the lower 50s with mostly sunny skies.
Keep Looking Up!
