TGIF! Another hot day ahead

Southerly winds overnight warm us

By John Gaughan - Chief meteorologist , Rebecca Barry - Meteorologist
Today, Friday, expect smoke throughout Southeastern Georgia as the wind continues from the South-southwest overnight.  We will see a  warmer start to your Friday with lows in the upper 60s to low 70s.  Expect high pressure to continue to dominate our forecast, making for hot temperatures with highs in the low to mid 90s inland, mid to upper 80s along the beaches.  Winds will be out of the  Southwest, becoming Southeasterly between 10-15 mph.  
Saturday and Sunday:   The return of our onshore flow brings cooler temperatures inland and along the beaches, although still above our seasonal averages.  Morning temperatures will be in the mid to upper 60s inland, and in the 60s to low 70s at the beaches.  Highs will top out in the mid to upper 80s inland, and at the beaches we will see afternoon temperatures in the low to mid 80s with a fresh breeze.  Winds will be out of the Southeast between 10-15 mph.  The weekend forecast remains dry, but models are in better agreement for some scattered showers early next week.
Looks like the bulk of the scattered showers will be Monday evening, and mostly drying out by Tuesday morning.
