AUGUSTA, Ga. (WFXG) - Low pressure will move away from the region today as high pressure and drier build in. This will keep mostly clear skies and dry weather over the area through Saturday. The high pressure will slide into the Atlantic late Saturday with increasing chances of afternoon and evening thunderstorms Sunday through the middle of next week. Mostly clear tonight with diminishing winds as pressure ridge builds southeast from Tennessee.
Comfortable overnight minimum temperatures 55-60 degrees. High pressure along with dry air will be traversing the region Friday and moving offshore Saturday and Saturday night. As the high builds into the region Friday winds will be light from the north which will put a bit of cold air advection over the forecast area and keep afternoon high temperatures several degrees below normal. As the high moves offshore on Saturday the winds will turn to southerly allowing temperatures to begin warming and moisture to return to the area. Rain is not expected Saturday night as it will take time to overcome the dry air in place. Afternoon high temperatures Friday will be in the low 80s then warm to the mid and upper 80s for Saturday. Overnight lows Friday night will be in the upper 50s to around 60 and the
mid 60s Saturday night.
