AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - High pressure over the region will keep our weather pattern quiet. Winds will be calm and stay less than 5 mph. A few high level clouds from tropical depression Beta are expected across the area into Wednesday as the system slowly inches eastward. Lows will be on the cooler side again early this morning down in the mid to low 50s.

More clouds than sun are expected during the day as high level clouds from Beta near the Texas-Louisiana coast filter in to the region. We will remain dry on today, despite the lack of sun most of the day. Highs will remain below average in the mid to upper 70s with winds variable throughout the day between 3-8 mph.

Moisture starts to build across the region Thursday as the remnants of Beta continues inland. This will continue cloud cover across the region and bring us the chance for a few showers by later in the day Thursday, most likely Thursday night. Highs on Thursday will be a little warmer and get up to 80. Winds will be out of the southeast between 5-10 mph.

Most of the rain from what’s left of Beta is expected to move through the region Thursday night and through the day Friday. Rain totals look to be below an inch for most of the CSRA, but isolated areas could get over 1″. The weekend forecast will be tricky and dependent on how fast the remnants of Beta push east of the area along with the timing of our next front. Right now it looks like some showers will be possible Saturday and Sunday, but that is subject to change. Keep it here for updates.
