AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - With an official high temperature in Augusta of 88 degrees, Saturday was the warmest day since May 14; however, that warm up did not last long, as a weak cold front brought another dose of below average temperatures Sunday which will last into the first part of the workweek. A modest warm up is on tap by the middle of the week with afternoon highs approaching 90 Tuesday and Wednesday, then another cool front arrives Thursday bringing a chance of rain Thursday and cooler and drier conditions Friday into next weekend.
Sunday night will be quite cool for the month of June. With clear skies, calm winds and a dry air mass, overnight lows will tumble into the upper 50s.
Sunny skies return Monday, but temperatures will remain a few degrees below average with highs in the middle 80s. This compares to an average high and low for this date of 90 and 66, so temperatures will be a solid 5 to 7 degrees below average. Winds will be from the southeast at 3 to 7 mph.
