AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - The front that brought us scattered showers and storms today has retreated to the north resulting in a mainly dry forecast for Sunday into the first week of August.

More sunshine and less rain can be expected than we saw on Saturday. The result will be a hotter day with highs in the lower 90s. There will be a decent breeze to cut through the heat and humidity will be a touch lower than it was yesterday, but the heat index will still top out around 104 this afternoon. Winds will be from the west to southwest at 8 to 13 mph.

Mainly clear skies and muggy conditions are expected Sunday night into Monday morning. Temperatures will be in the 90s until just before sunset tonight at 8:29, falling into the lower 70s by sunrise at 6:39 Monday morning. Winds will be very light from the southwest at 1 to 4 mph.

Another mostly sunny, breezy and mostly dry day can be expected Monday. Highs will be in the middle to upper 90s with winds from the west 8 to 13 mph.

Standard summer heat, humidity, and widely scattered afternoon storms can be expected Tuesday through Saturday. Highs will be in the middle 90s through Thursday cooling slightly into the lower 90s by Friday and Saturday. Low temperatures each day will be in the lower to middle 70s.
