AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Rain chances will be higher the rest of the week as a surface cold front combined with a closed upper-low brings widespread rain to the region Friday through Sunday.

Our next cold front starts to move into the region today. Highs today will be warm again in the mid-70s. Winds will be out of the southwest between 5-12 mph.

Heavy rain and even the chance for a few thunderstorms look likely Friday, mainly in the afternoon into Friday night. Rain totals between 1-2″ look like a good bet for most of the area between Friday afternoon and Friday night as a cold front moves into the region. Highs Friday will be in the mid to upper 60s. Winds will be variable between 5-10 mph.
