Cold weather to follow rain

It’s going to be a cold Thanksgiving.


After a band of lingering showers moves out of Augusta to the northeast Wednesday morning, a cold front is expected to settle in for the weekend, said Chris Liscinsky, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service’s regional headquarters in West Columbia, S.C.

Liscinski said the weather will remain dry but cold through Sunday, with morning temperatures in the mid-20s and highs only reaching the upper 40s.

“It’s going to be chilly,” Liscinsky said. “Be sure to wear a coat while out shopping.”

Liscinski said the area will receive about 2 inches of rainfall before the weather clears.

Starting Saturday, temperatures are expected to rise to the mid-50s, he said.
