SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - We warmed quickly with several cities including Savannah and Beaufort hitting 76° and perhaps more by the end of the heating day. We’re even 73° on Tybee. High pressure is wedged between the Low pressure off the Charleston coast, which gave us heavy rain Sunday morning. That high pressure will keep us dry and warm through most of the week.
