Lower temps this week

  • Follow Metro

Augusta's official high temperature dropped below 100 degrees Sunday for the first time since Aug. 4, snapping a seven-day hot streak.

The high of 95 degrees recorded at Bush Field will probably begin a week of less extreme temperatures and possible thunderstorms, said Bruce Cherry, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in West Columbia, S.C.

Augusta's seven-day streak tied similar streaks in July 1990 and July 1930, Mr. Cherry said.

Sunday's temperatures remained moderate because of a storm front that produced cloudy skies.

Look for a slight chance of thundershowers on Monday, with temperatures in the upper 90s, maybe reaching 100, the rest of the week.
