Wet weather will be hanging around through Tuesday before taking a short break and returning this weekend.

Through this morning, a half inch of rainfall was recorded in the Augusta area since Sunday with more rain to come today. National Weather Service meteorologist Leonard Vaughan said the area could experience another half inch through the day.

Currently, there is only a slight chance the showers could develop into strong storms this afternoon.

A cold front pushing through on Tuesday will kept the rain clouds in the area for an additional today before breaking for clear skies Wednesday.

A cold front moving through Saturday will bring back chances of showers, Vaughan said.

Temperatures for the week are forecasted to hang around the 80s, which is considered normal for early fall in Augusta. Vaughan said overall it looks like highs in the 90s and above are gone.

“The way the weather pattern is looking this week and next week, I don’t see any super warm weather headed our way,” he said.
