AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW / WAGT) – A closed upper low will slowly rise north on Thursday as an elevation trough begins to dig south toward the eastern United States. We will see wet conditions through Friday, but the trough should push east of the region by this weekend and bring back a drier configuration.
Showers becoming more isolated overnight. Winds will be light from the northeast, generally less than 10 mph. Temperatures will remain muggy near 70 overnight until early Thursday.
Scattered showers are expected during the day Thursday. The maximums will remain in the 80s with cloudy skies during the day. Winds will be light from the northeast, generally less than 10 mph. There is a marginal risk of flash floods on Thursday. Usual hot spots will have the biggest problems, so make sure your drains are clear.
Friday is very similar to Thursday with a high probability of rain at some point of the day. Highs will be in the 1980s. Winds will remain weak from the northeast.
This system is finally receding by the end of the week, causing a gradual trend towards drier weather by this weekend. Temperatures appear to be slightly cooler this weekend with morning lows in the 60s. A few isolated showers are possible on Saturday, but on Sunday the trend is rather dry.
