AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Clouds will linger through the overnight hours Saturday night into early Sunday morning which will keep temperatures from falling off a whole lot overnight. Temperatures will fall slowly through the lower 50s this evening gradually dipping into the middle 40s by sunrise Sunday at 7:21.

Rain moves in Sunday morning shortly after sunrise and will only get steadier and more widespread for the afternoon. As a result of the rain and a cool winds from the northeast at 2 to 5 mph, temperatures will struggle to get out of the 40s north of I-20 and lower 50s south of I-20.

Light rain and drizzle will continue Sunday night, gradually tapering off during the overnight hours. Overnight lows Sunday night into Monday morning will again be in the middle 40s with winds from the northeast at 2 to 5 mph. While rain and drizzle will be steady, it will be fairly light for the most part with rain totals Sunday and Sunday night around a quarter to a third of an inch.

Monday will get off to a cloudy day, but drier air will work its way into the area, so skies will gradually clear by Monday afternoon. Highs will be in the upper 50s Monday, which is still a few degrees below the average high of 62.

After a partly sunny and cool day Tuesday with lows in the lower 40s and highs in the upper 50s, another very wet storm system is poised to move through the region Wednesday through early Thursday. Like Sunday’s system, expect a very chilly rain Wednesday with highs likely not making it out of the lower 50s.

Dry weather returns in the wake of that storm system Friday through next weekend. Temperatures will be several degrees below average Friday and Saturday with highs in the middle to upper 50s Friday and lower to middle 50s Saturday. With mainly clear skies, overnight lows will also be several degrees below average with lows in the middle 30s by Saturday morning. Dry skies and cooler than average temperatures will continue into Sunday with highs reaching into the upper 50s and overnight lows in the lower to middle 30s on Sunday morning.
