SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - Wednesday is a First Alert Weather Day.

The morning starts out quiet with temperatures only falling into the mid 60s for many communities. We’ll have a southwesterly breeze of 10-15 miles per hour throughout the morning, helping to reload the atmosphere a but by bringing in warm and humid air.

Temperatures warm up near 80 by lunchtime, with showers and thunderstorms developing soon after. A few strong to severe storms will once again be possible Wednesday afternoon into the evening, but this doesn’t look like a repeat of what we saw on Tuesday.

Damaging wind up to 60 miler per hour along with an isolated tornado or two will be possible. Make sure you have multiple ways to receive weather alerts!

Our severe threat diminishes overnight into Thursday, but showers and even a few thunderstorms will still be possible Thursday morning. Rain clears throughout the day, as cooler air begins to filter in with wind gusts over 20 miles per hour possible.

Friday morning will be noticeably cooler, with morning lows near 50 degrees, compared to the mid 60s the previous few mornings. Highs only top out near 70 degrees under mostly sunny skies.

Calm and cooler weather extends into the weekend with morning temperatures in the 40s and highs in the mid 60s Saturday and lower 70s on Sunday.
