AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - A closed upper low will slowly lift north Thursday as an upper level trough begins digging south toward the eastern US. We will see wet conditions through Friday, but the trough should be pushing east of the area by this weekend and bring back a drier pattern.

A closed upper low will provide decent rain chances through Friday.

Friday looks very similar to Thursday with a high chance of seeing rain at some point during the day. Highs will be in the low 80s. Winds will remain light out of the northeast.

This system finally moves away by week’s end, bringing a gradual trend toward drier weather by this weekend. It looks like temperatures will be slightly cooler this weekend with morning lows back down in the low 60s. A few isolated showers are possible Saturday, but Sunday is trending mostly dry.
