AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW / WAGT) – Cloudy skies for tonight with temperatures remaining in the upper 30s and low 40s. The probability of rain will increase late tonight into early Tuesday, as a low pressure area swings a low pressure area from the Gulf of Mexico towards the southeast Atlantic coast from Tuesday to Wednesday.

From Tuesday to Tuesday afternoon, isolated to widespread showers are expected. The highest rain totals seem to be concentrated in our southern counties, with an additional 0.5 ″ -1.5 ″ of rainfall possible. The rain totals will taper further north to 0.25-0.50 ″. Be prepared that the rain can last all day. The highs will stay cool in the mid to low 40s on Tuesday, with northeast winds staying steady between 5-12 mph.

While the system continues to move up the Atlantic coast on Tuesday night, we will see a drier air filter early Wednesday with lows in the upper 30s. Dry and mostly sunny skies on Wednesday with highs close to 60 in the afternoon. The wind blows from the southwest at a speed of 5 to 12 miles per hour.

Sunny and seasonal Thursday with morning lows near freezing and afternoon highs near 60. Friday should stay fine with slightly warmer highs in the mid-1960s.

Looks warm for Christmas Day with highs close to 70 and partly cloudy skies. They usually want to stay dry and warmer than average on Sunday. Keep it here for updates.
