SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) -Our weather will remain very unsettled through Thursday. Fred will make landfall well to our west and the remnants will persist over the southeast through Wednesday. High pressure will continue off the east coast. The steering currents around these two systems will combine to give us plenty of tropical moisture. This will result in a good chance for on and off showers with isolated thunderstorms through Wednesday. The remnants of Fred should finally dissipate Thursday and high pressure will prevail in to the weekend. This will lower our rain chances and give us more sun and warmer temps.

Today will be cloudy with a 70% chance for showers and storms, highs in the mid 80s.

Tonight will be cloudy with a 50% chance for showers and storms, lows in the mid 70s.
