Daily Forecast | The latest from First Alert Meteorologist Chris Still
Cloudy and warmer Sunday. Record highs possible late this week.
AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - After another chilly start in the lower 30s Sunday morning, afternoon highs will rebound to near the average high of 64 with near record high temperatures expected by midweek. An upper level disturbance may spark a brief sprinkle in a few spots Sunday, but any rain would be brief and very light. Skies clear Sunday night, and then the warm up begins for the upcoming workweek. A cool front will approach Georgia-Carolina Tuesday and may get close enough to spark a couple of showers in our area; however, that chance of rain currently looks to be around 20 percent or less. The warm up continues Wednesday with highs expected to be very near the current record of 83 set a few years ago in 2018. Another near record warm day can be expected ahead of a cold front Thursday. There may be a few showers as that front moves through late Thursday, then we can expect slightly cooler, but still well above average, temperatures Friday into next weekend when highs are currently expected to be in the lower to middle 70s.
Sunday - Mostly cloudy skies and seasonably mild with a very slight chance for a passing sprinkle. Highs in the middle 60s with winds from the south at 3 to 6 mph.
Sunday Night - Clearing and seasonably cool. Lows in the lower 40s with calm wind.
Monday - Mostly sunny with warmer than average temperatures. Highs in the middle to upper 70s. Winds from the southwest at 3 to 7 mph.
