Today’s unseasonably warm temperatures tied a record high set in 1998, according to the National Weather Service in Columbia, S.C.

The temperature at Augusta Regional Airport reached 82 degrees, tying the record for Dec. 6.

The warm temperatures won’t last through the weekend. A slow-moving cold front that’s bringing below normal temperatures, ice and snow to much of the nation will move into the Augusta area Saturday, said meteorologist Dan Miller.

Temperatures will fall throughout Saturday into the low 60s, and Sunday’s forecast calls for a high around 50 degrees. Rain is forecast for Saturday night and Sunday, Miller said.
