AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Isolated downpours will remain possible through a little after sunset this evening. Most of the overnight should remain partly to mostly cloudy. Winds will stay steady out of the southwest between 5-10 mph. Lows are expected to stay in the mid 70s into early Thursday morning.

Thursday will be similar to Wednesday with high storm chances as a surface trough stays around the region. The one difference Thursday is that isolated showers could be possible before afternoon hours. Highest storm chances Thursday will be mainly in the afternoon and evening. We’re not expecting severe weather, but storms wlil be capable of producing very heavy rain and frequent lightning. Highs will be cooler again and stay near 90. Winds will be picking up out of the southwest throughout the day between 5-15 mph.

The moisture rich air over the region Wednesday and Thursday will begin to shift further east Friday into the weekend. This will lower our storm chances some and highs will be back above average. Highs Friday will be in the mid 90s with feel like temperatures over 100°. Storms are expected to be mainly in the afternoon and isolated in coverage. Winds will remain out of the southwest between 5-15 mph.

Saturday is looking the hottest day for the rest of the week with highs in the mid to upper 90s. Isolated storms are expected later in the day and up until around sunset. Winds are expected to remain out of the southwest, but be a little calmer between 5-10 mph.

Storm chances are expected to increase again Sunday into early next week as an upper level trough enters the region. This will support better coverage of storms and help lower our high temperatures to the lower 90s early next week. Keep it here for updates.
