There will be a 20 percent chance of rain before 8 a.m.

Saturday night - Partly cloudy, with a low around 61. It's going to feel warmer with a bit more humidity and highs in the mid 80s. Northeast winds 5 to 15 miles per hour. A few stray rain showers will be possible. Partly cloudy skies should return Thursday with afternoon temperatures in the middle 90s.

High tide on Hilton Head Island will be between six and a half feet and eight feet, and low tide will be between a negative quarter foot and a little over a half foot.
