Daily Forecast | The latest from First Alert Meteorologist Mikel Hannah-Harding
Staying dry for MLK Day with increasing cloud cover. Big warm up through mid-week with rain returning by Tuesday.
AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Another cold night ahead for the CSRA as temperatures fall quickly into the 30s this evening. Morning temperatures Monday morning are expected to bottom out in the mid to upper 20s and low 30s. Highs will be near to slightly above average Monday afternoon as winds shift to the southwest helping high temperatures warm into the lower 60s with upper 60s by Tuesday and lower to middle 70s Wednesday and Thursday. The first of a series of storm systems arrives Tuesday as a frontal system marches in from the west. A secondary system moves in Thursday with higher rain chances in comparison to Tuesday. Highs will be in the middle 70s by Wednesday and Thursday, so there could be a few rumbles of thunder ahead of the front Thursday. Skies will clear Friday with slightly cooler temperatures, then yet another system rolls in just in time to bring a chance of rain for the weekend. Temperatures are expected to return to near average by the weekend with afternoon highs in the upper 50s and lows in the mid to lower 40s Saturday night into Sunday morning.
