AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Staying dry and warm through today, but a cold front moves in tonight bringing a good chance of rain Friday, then we can expect dry and colder than average weather to return Friday afternoon into this weekend.

More clouds are expected today with warm highs in the upper 70s - even up to 80 in a few spots. Rain should hold out until we get to tonight into Friday as our next cold front brings downpours to the region.

Temperatures will be in the 60s as rain moves through the region early Friday. Rain should be clear of the CSRA by early afternoon. As the front pushes rainfall east of the CSRA in the afternoon temperatures will likely drop into the 50s. Winds will be breezy along the front Friday with west winds sustained between 12-18 mph.

Cold air moves in behind the front and brings lows down in the low 30s by early Saturday. Highs Saturday will be cooler than average in the mid-50s with sunny skies.

Morning lows Sunday will be near freezing in the low 30s. Afternoon highs will be warmer in the mid-60s with partly cloudy skies. Keep it here for updates.
