SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - Rain and storms offshore are building their way into our area ahead of an area of low pressure that was recently upgraded to Tropical Depression Four off of our coastline.

T.D. 4 is forecast to continue west-northwest; making landfall late this afternoon or evening.

IMPACTS | Elevated risk of rip currents, clusters of thunderstorms with heavy rain, briefly rough surf and breezier conditions are all likely. Winds may gust stronger than 40 MPH in a few storms and along the beaches through early evening. Rain will be locally heavy at times.

There is a low risk of severe weather, including isolated tornadoes, through early evening.

The stormiest weather is expected to occur along the I-95 corridor and Savannah Metro between early afternoon and early evening. The forecast dries out from east, to west, tonight as lower pressure passes inland.

Rain accumulations will average between 1″ to 2″. A few communities - one, or two, spots - may get more than 3″ of rain by early evening. Street flooding is possible where the heavies rain occurs.

No coastal flooding is forecast, but localized street flooding is possible
