TIMELINE | Strong storms expected this weekend

South Georgia has the potential for scattered severe thunderstorms on Sunday. The tornado threat could be more significant if supercell thunderstorms are able to form ahead of the main line.

Snow is finally out of the viewing area, and a warmer forecast is in store for the next few days. The sunshine returns Wednesday and winds ease up with a high of only 75.

The clouds will clear Monday night as temperatures fall into the low 30s again. Chances of rough stuff increase southward toward the North Carolina border but the Fredericksburg area could see some strong winds and very heavy rain from storms this afternoon followed by a squall line after dark.

The cool down continues into Friday with lows in the mid-40s and Friday afternoon highs in the upper-60s. The National Weather Service forecasts wind gusts as high as 50 miles per hour, which could lead to drifting snow and whiteout conditions. Expect highs in the upper 50s and low 60s.

We're watching a major storm system that's sparking a multi-state blizzard warning, stretching from Kansas to Minnesota. Winds will increase on Monday and Tuesday from the south 20-30 miles per hour. As we go into the evening and overnight there is a slight chance of a shower.

Saturday will be mostly sunny with highs in the mid-70s.

The cause of the threat is a strong cold front slated to move through the Lowcountry late in the day on Sunday.

"And while not everyone will experience severe weather today, models are consistently gridding out 1-2" of rain in a short window this evening as everything rolls through.
