AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) — Patchy dense fog will persist through about 9 a.m., with temperatures starting in the low to mid 70s on the steamy side. Afternoon highs will reach the mid to upper 80’s with lots of cloud cover and isolated showers and storms. It won’t be an all-day washout, but there’s a good chance at least an hour of your day will be wet. In the afternoon there is the greatest probability of rain, but showers cannot be completely ruled out in the morning either. Winds are east-southeast at less than 10 mph.
First alarm Meteorologist Chris Still has your Saturday forecast and an update on the newly formed tropical storm Earl in the Atlantic.
Sunday morning lows will be back near 70 with afternoon highs reaching the mid to high 80’s. Sunday will be another overcast day with isolated showers and storms expected, especially in the warm afternoon and evening hours. Winds remain east-southeast at less than 10 mph.
Sub-par highs will last for most of next week, with highs mostly in the mid-80s throughout the week. Tuesday and Wednesday look like they could be just a tad drier, so those days could be just a tad warmer with highs possibly hitting 90 degrees. Daily rain probabilities continue next week, mostly in the afternoon and early evening.
We also keep an eye on the tropics. Danielle was stationary in the North Atlantic at 5:00 Saturday morning and will not hit the US mainland, but Earl formed up late Friday night. The National Hurricane Center‘s current forecast keeps Earl at sea and calls for it to remain a tropical storm.
