Daily forecast | The latest from WRDW/WAGT Meteorologist Mikel Hannah-Harding
Staying dry through Saturday. Rain likely by Sunday.
AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - After another cold start Saturday morning, with most of us well below freezing in the 20s, temperatures will rise into the middle 50s by Saturday afternoon. High pressure centered to our north will provide a gentle breeze from the east and give us one more dry day Saturday, before the next storm system brings rain much of the day Sunday.
Another rain maker moves in Sunday; however, a warm front will pass through Saturday night bringing milder temperatures Saturday night and Sunday. Increasing clouds Saturday night will keep low temperatures 15 to 20 degrees warmer than last night with overnight lows in the middle 40s. Sunday will be a quite damp day overall, but rain will not be very heavy with storm totals Sunday and Sunday night between 0.25-0.50″. Highs on Sunday will be warmer in the mid 60s. Expect a fairly breezy day Sunday with winds from the southwest at 10 to 15 mph.
Drier conditions will return in the wake of the cold front Monday, but it will be on the windy side and much cooler with highs in the middle 50s and gusty northwest winds 15 to 20 mph. A few light rain showers are not out of the question Monday as an upper level low pressure system passes to our north, but any rain will be very light and short lived.
The first week of February gets off to a cooler than average start with highs in the middle 50s and lows near freezing through Tuesday. A nice warm up may be on the way toward the end of the week ahead of another system that arrives next Friday. Expect highs to warm into the middle to upper 60s by Thursday and Friday.
