Daily Forecast | The latest from WRDW/WAGT Meteorologist Mikel Hannah-Harding
AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Perfect radiational cooling conditions this morning with clear skies and calm winds made for a hard freeze as temperatures bottomed out in the mid to upper 20s early this morning. Some locations were even in the lower 20s. This morning is expected to be the coldest morning over the next 7 days. Saturday still looks dry with mostly sunny skies during the day and highs in the mid 50s. Winds will be out of the east between 3-6 mph.
A cold front and area of low pressure will head towards the CSRA early Sunday morning bringing high rain chances for the first half of the day. Lows early Sunday are expected to remain in the upper 30s and low 40s. Temperatures will struggle to increase during the day Sunday as clouds stick around and rain falls. Highs on Sunday are expected to remain near 50. Scattered showers are expected Sunday morning with coverage turning more isolated in the afternoon.
Showers are expected to remain possible into Monday as the system gradually moves off the southeast coast. Highs on Monday will be a little warmer and reach the low 60s in the afternoon. Tuesday and Wednesday next week look dry with highs above normal in the mid to low 60s. Skies are expected to be generally sunny.
Looking ahead to Christmas eve and Christmas day we are currently expecting rain Thursday as a strong cold front moves through the southeast. Behind the front we are expecting the coldest temperatures of the season with lows Christmas morning down in the mid to low 20s. This is still 6-7 days out, so nothing is written in stone just yet, but as of right now, Christmas day looks cold and sunny! Keep it here for updates.
