Clouds, Rain, Thunder & Wind
Today, will be cloudy with rain beginning in the southern portions before noon, in the Savannah area by noon and into SC early afternoon. The rain will be heavy at times along with possible strong gusty winds. Total rainfall by Tuesday morning could reach 1-2 or more inches throughout the region ... See FORECAST RAINFALL AMOUNTS for your area. As of 11 pm Sunday, 1.20" of rain recorded at Coffee Bluff.
Tropical Storm Alberto
Tropical Storm "Alberto" ... pronounced al-BAIR-toe, will slowly strengthen today as it moves into the SE Gulf of Mexico. The path of the storm has shifted a bit to the east and it now appears that the center of the storm will make landfall as a strong tropical storm near Apalachicola, FL early Monday and continue to move very slowly northward. For our area of SE GA and SE SC, moisture being pumped northward on its eastern side will result in tropical showers or squalls later today, tonight, Monday and Tuesday. (Tropical showers, or squalls, are brief but very heavy downpours along with strong gusty winds). See FORECAST WINDS for your area.
