Typical summer heat, humidity, and afternoon/evening storms for your 4th of July outlook.
AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - An active weather pattern will remain in place this week. Afternoon showers and storms expected each day. Isolated damaging winds and localized flash flooding possible.
More of the same can be expected for the Fourth of July holiday in the way of rainfall with a solid 50 percent chance of afternoon and evening thunderstorms after 2 p.m. Plenty of sunshine early in the day will take highs into the lower/middle 90s. High pressure aloft coupled with warm and moist southerly winds at the surface will mean warmer than average temperatures and a good scattering of late-day thunderstorms each day for the upcoming work week.
The entire CSRA is under a low-level marginal risk for localized flooding issues. Heavy downpours will be possible with storms today.
Tuesday, another round of afternoon showers and storms expected, but coverage should be lower than the previous day.
A more organized system may move through the Mid Atlantic region on Wednesday leading to a slight risk of severe weather. Strong winds and heavy downpours would be the main threat.
High temperatures will be in the middle 90s Tuesday through Friday with low temperatures in the lower to middle 70s. Heat Index values will be near and over 100° each day this week. The active weather pattern will continue through the weekend with a frontal system moving into the region. Stay hydrated and keep the rain gear nearby!
