AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Sunday’s forecast will be nearly identical to Saturday’s with mostly sunny skies and unseasonably mild conditions. High temperatures will soar into the middle 70s which is well above the average high for today of 68.

Clear skies continue Sunday night, although there may be a few clouds passing overhead overnight into early Monday morning. Overnight lows will again be on the mild side for the first Monday of March with lows expected to dip into the middle to upper 40s and a light wind from the east at less than 5 mph.

If you enjoyed the weather this weekend, Monday should make you pretty happy too with partly to mostly sunny skies and highs in the middle 70s and a light wind from the southeast at 3 to 7 mph.

The warmest day of the upcoming week will be Tuesday as a strong 10 to 15 mph breeze pumps in very warm air from the southwest ahead of the next cold front. This front will not have enough moisture to result in any rain in the CSRA, but it will deliver a shot of seasonably mild air for the second half of the week.

Dry and noticeably cooler weather can be expected Wednesday, but there may be some clouds around with highs in the middle to upper 60s and morning lows in the middle to upper 40s.

Clouds increase Thursday ahead of the next front, but right now, it looks like any rain will hold off until Thursday night or Friday. High temperatures Thursday, Friday and Saturday will be near average in the middle to upper 60s with morning lows in the middle to upper 40s Thursday and Friday, warming into the lower 50s Saturday morning.

Friday and Saturday are shaping up to be cloudy days with scattered rain showers both days, so keep a close eye on that forecast as you make your plans for next weekend.

Monday looks beautiful across the CSRA with morning lows in the lower 40s and afternoon highs in the middle 70s. Afternoon highs get even warmer Tuesday and should top out around 80 degrees ahead of the next front. This front will not deliver much, if any, rain to our region, but it will bring temperatures back to more seasonable levels with highs in the middle to upper 60s Wednesday through Friday and morning lows in the middle 40s to around 50 degrees.

Another front moves in late Thursday into Friday bringing a better chance for showers Thursday evening through Saturday.
