Daily forecast | The latest from WRDW/WAGT Chief Meteorologist Riley Hale
Late day storms possible Friday and Saturday. Keeping an eye on Isaias.
AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Most of the overnight should remain cloudy. Winds will stay steady out of the southwest between 5-10 mph. Lows are expected to stay in the mid to upper 70s into early Friday morning.
Very hot and humid forecast ahead on Friday. Highs will reach the mid 90s, but feels like temps will be well over 100°. A few scattered storms are expected Friday afternoon into Friday night. Winds will remain out of the southwest between 8-12 mph.
Saturday is looking just as hot as Friday with highs in the mid to upper 90s and feels like temperatures over 100°. Isolated storms are expected later in the day and up until around sunset. Winds are expected to remain out of the southwest between 5-12 mph.
Storm chances are expected to increase again Sunday into early next week as an upper level trough enters the region to the west and Hurricane Isaias makes its way up the southeast coast. This will support better coverage of storms and help lower our high temperatures to the lower 90s early next week. We are not expecting any strong winds from Isaias, but heavy rain could be a threat given our upper level set up for easily forming showers and storms interacting with the extra moisture from Isaias. Keep it here for updates since tropical forecasts change frequently.
