AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Partly cloudy skies expected this evening. Patchy dense fog is possible late tonight into early Wednesday. Lows early Wednesday are expected to be above average and stay near 60. Winds will be light and variable Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

Patchy fog is possible around daybreak Wednesday, but we should see mostly sunny skies in the afternoon. Highs will be getting warmer and reach the mid to upper 80s. Winds will be turning out of the west between 3-8 mph.

We’ll likely wake up near 60 again early Thursday morning. Mostly sunny skies expected during the day with highs back above average in the mid to upper 80s. Winds will be light out of the east less than 10 mph.

More clouds than sun are expected during the day Friday as outflow cloud cover from Delta starts moving over the area. Most of the area looks dry Friday with highs mores seasonal in the low 80s.

Rain chances will be increasing this weekend as what’s left of Delta moves inland and north of the area. Showers look likely during the day Saturday and Sunday, but impacts don’t look to be too threatening. Wind won’t be an issue for us, but we know what heavy rain in a short amount of time can do to our area. Heavy rain will be possible, but latest model guidance does not show flooding rains. We will continue to monitor throughout the week.
