AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Happy St. Patrick’s Day! We’re starting things off with temps in the mid-40s, about 15-20 degrees warming than yesterday morning. As we continue through the afternoon highs are expected to reach the mid-70s. A line of widespread showers and isolated thunderstorms moves in later into the day - mainly after 4 PM. Rain totals look to be below an inch for most of the CSRA - but rain will be heavy at times. Winds will be breezy this afternoon with winds out of the southwest between 15-20 mph and gusts between 25-30. Rain will continue into tonight with overnight lows in mid-40s.

Temperatures will be cooler for the weekend behind the front. Rain should be clear of the CSRA by morning Saturday. Highs Saturday will be in the low 60s with breezy winds between 10-15 mph.

Morning lows Sunday will be chilly in the mid-30s. Afternoon highs will only reach the mid-50s under partly cloudy skies.

Monday looks dry with lows in the low to mid-30s and highs in the mid-50s. Rain will be possible again Tuesday as an area of low pressure moves up the Southeast coast. Models are going back and forth on where rain will be possible Tuesday - keep it here for updates through the weekend.
