 Cold weather is returning.

For the second time this month, January temperatures will drop below average in the days ahead as a high pressure system and cold air mass swing through.

Thursday’s high temperature will be nearly 10 degrees lower than normal in Augusta.

National Weather Service Meteorologist Whitney Smith said the forecast calls for a high of 48 and a low of 29.

“That is much lower than what we have been seeing in Augusta,” Smith said.

Normal temperatures for this time of year are around 58 degrees for a high and 33 for a low.

Chilly weather will continue through the weekend with highs mainly around the low 50s. Saturday will see the coolest temperatures with a high of 44. Low temperatures will remain below freezing each evening through Sunday.

Despite the recent see-sawing weather pattern, Smith said the three-month outlook showed mainly above normal temperatures.

By Monday, temperatures will again climb to normal with a projected high of 58 degrees. Temperatures will continue to increase to about 60 on Tuesday.

Ms. Johnson must have had a dull week, so she's reporting about weather that has no affect on the mobility of our community. When I first read the headline, I was prepared to buy a generator so I would not have to sleep at a friend's house on a blow-up mattress for two days.

Great reporting.
