AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -

Severe Weather Outlook
Severe Weather Outlook(WRDW)

An upper level trough over the region coupled with a very energetic and unstable air mass will allow for scattered storms to form this afternoon and last through tonight. Some storms could be severe. The Storm Prediction Center has the CSRA under a marginal risk for severe storms today, which means isolated severe weather is possible, but any severe weather that does form should be limited in coverage and duration. Strong wind gusts will be the main severe weather hazard with storms. Downpours over certain areas could trigger a few flood alerts across the area as well. The Weather Prediction Center currently has the CSRA under a marginal risk for flash flooding conditions throughout the day today and into tonight. Highs are expected to be slightly cooler and stay in the mid to upper 80s. Winds will be out of the southeast between 3-8 mph.

Highs look to climb back to the 90s by Sunday into next week. At least a few isolated storms will remain possible Sunday into early next week.
