Summer thunderstorms

The Southeast USA expects the afternoon rain in the summer

IMG_3474

Summer brings intense  heat, high humidity and afternoon thunderstorms to the Southeastern USA.  Late afternoon and early evening storms can be expected.  It all starts with the rumbling thunder, dark clouds and maybe a lightning flash,  the downpour follows. Don’t expect things to cool off.  Daily temperatures during July and August stay in the 90’s and evenings drop into the 70’s.

A few visitor tips:

Keep an eye on the sky for the dark clouds that roll in

Roll up your car windows if you expect to be away after 4pm

Pack an umbrella

Plan your nap for 4-5PM

Listen for the rumble if you’re at the beach because it’s a mad dash when the rain starts

This cozy oceanside community located just east of Savannah Georgia offers something for all ages.  With a wide variety of lodging options, including hotels, timeshare resorts, privately owned beach cottages, oceanview homes, creekside properties and campgrounds. The Coastal colors throughout the community, the salt air and the light surf all says it’s time to relax.

 

The scenic marsh drive on US highway 80 from Savannah to the island offers a peak of the wildlife that makes the marsh and rivers their home. Upon entering the island you will find a great variety of services available so don’t worry if you forgot something at home.

Within minutes you will sense the casual charm and the southern hospitality of this coastal Georgia barrier island.

During your stay, besides the lovely 5 miles of Public beach access, there is so much to do.
