Rainy Through Monday Morning, Nicer Tuesday

Good evening, everyone! Expect steady rain to work through the area tonight. The steadiest rain is currently shifting west as of 5:30 PM, and will make it’s way through much of the area (possibly missing southwest sections) through 2 AM. After that rain will transition to drizzle from east to west across the region. Lows tonight will range from 38 to 47 degrees.

In total an additional inch or so of rain is expected across the region, bringing final totals up to around 1 to 2 inches for the area. Eastern zones may see another 1.5 inches, so localized totals of 2.5 to 3 inches are possible east of Augusta. Urban and poor drainage flooding is definitely in play tonight, especially east, but rivers should remain where they need to be.

Monday expect drizzle to taper to showers mid to late morning, with most showers pushing northeast by the afternoon. Many areas will remain cloudy, but western zones could see some sun towards sunset. High temperatures will range from 49 to 58 degrees.

Monday night clouds will gradually continue to clear from west to east with no precipitation expected. Most areas will be clear by morning. It’ll be chilly, with lows ranging from 38 to 47 degrees.

Tuesday will be mostly sunny with high temperatures ranging from 63 to 75 degrees, coldest in the mountains and warmest south.

Warm conditions look to continue through late week, with summer-like heat and humidity possible Thursday into Friday. Have a great evening and watch for urban and poor drainage flooding if out and about tonight!
