AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - A cold front will move through the region today bringing clouds and warm highs. Highs this afternoon should be in the the mid to upper 70s before the front moves through tonight. Rain isn’t expected for most the CSRA with this system. Winds will be out of the southwest between 5-12 mph.

There is a partial lunar eclipse between 1 - 7 am Friday. The best viewing of the eclipse will be between 3:30 - 4:30 am when the Earth’s umbra is cast over the Moon. This will give the moon a reddish glow. A few clouds are expected Thursday night into Friday morning, so keep your fingers crossed!

Best viewing of the partial lunar eclipse will be between 3:30 - 4:30 am for the CSRA.
