While temperatures have been mostly below average, a slight heat wave could change all that starting this week.

According to National Weather Service Meteorologist Chris Liscinsky, the wet weather should move out of the Augusta area by Tuesday, making way for temperatures in the mid-90s.

“With that drying, there should be a lot more sunshine, less clouds and we should warm up as we get into Wednesday and Thursday,” he said.

Normal temperatures for this time of year are around 90. For at least the past month, Liscinsky said, temperatures have been cooler than average.

The higher temperatures should only last about two days before another chance for rain and cooler weather moves in again on Friday.

Liscinsky said it’s still too early to get a grasp on summer weather predictions, but the three-month outlook currently has high temperatures falling just above normal temperatures.

“Either way, it’s summer time. It’s going to be hot and humid,” he said of upcoming summer heat.

With the official start of summer just slightly more than a week away, typical summer heat is likely to hit and hang around for more than a day or so before the end of June.

At last, maybe things will dry out enough

so that I can get some yard work done.
