Well, we can hit the reset button on the “days since a tornado warning” category. Some of the storms on the leading edge of the rain were pretty rough, but it’s been a quiet, cool, rainy day after that. Cool weather continues through the weekend. Here’s the outlook to start November!

  • Tonight-Evening showers, then mostly cloudy. Morning frost. Low 30.
  • Friday-Decreasing clouds. Highs near 50.
  • Friday night-Partly cloudy to mostly clear. Low 32.
  • Saturday-Mostly sunny. High 54.
  • Sunday-Mostly sunny. High 55.

There have been some trees knocked down by the wind across the area, and I’ve heard of scattered power outages. I’m fairly sure that most of that was straight line winds, and not anything tornadic. But if the National Weather Service folks in Morristown hear of any major damage from Hancock County through Lee County, they’ll sure give it a look from where that one storm was tornado warned earlier.

Things are much calmer now. Rain is going to continue for some time this evening, but will eventually stop since the cold front has moved through. Look for much colder weather by morning as some locations might dip below 30 tonight.

From there, we’ll have high pressure around on Saturday. Look for sunshine with temperatures getting up to the low to mid 50’s. A weak cold front will move through on Saturday, but it shouldn’t bring anything more than an extra cloud or two.

That front will make Sunday slightly cooler, but still feature sunshine. We’ll stay in the low 50’s during the afternoon. Temperatures will slowly warm toward average for this time of year (low to mid 60s) as we go through next week.

Thanks for checking here for the forecast! Make sure you set your clocks this weekend for the end of Daylight Saving Time! If you do it Saturday night before bedtime, all should be well Sunday morning. Have a great weekend!

It’s an early weather blog today, as I’m helping produce a Sunday morning program on WETB this morning! Our weather stays calm over the next couple days, but rain is likely to return on Wednesday. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast through Friday!

The sun is starting to come out right now, and that will continue through the course of the rest of this Sunday. We’ll see temperatures near 70 in spots by the end of the afternoon. Tonight should be partly cloudy to mostly clear, with lows in the morning around 45. After that:

  • Monday-Mostly sunny. High 75.
  • Monday night-Partly cloudy. Low 47.
  • Tuesday-Partly to mostly sunny. High 75.
  • Wednesday-Increasing clouds, with rain likely in the afternoon. High 73.
  • Thursday-Rain showers likely. High 73.
  • Friday-Scattered showers early, but becoming partly cloudy. High 55.

We will be between a cold front to our northwest and a stationary front to our southeast through the first half of the week. As the front northwest of us gets closer, clouds will move in and rain will become more likely. The front moves through on Friday, and the sky should clear out in the afternoon.

Typically this time of year, our highs are in the mid 60s and lows are around 40. We’ll be 8-10 degrees above that through Thursday, then the cold front drops us to around 10 degrees below average on Friday as we start the month of November.

The good news is that early in the week, things will be warm, but not too warm. So getting outdoors is going to be fantastic the next two days before the rain arrives Wednesday.

Thanks for checking here for the forecast! Have a great week!

The rain has departed our area, and the sun is out! Get used to that and some cooler weather, as that will continue in the coming days. Here’s a quick look at the forecast through Friday!

  • Tonight-Mostly clear with morning frost possible. Low 38.
  • Wednesday-Mostly sunny. High 63.
  • Wednesday night-Mostly clear. Low 33.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny. High 68.
  • Friday-Increasing clouds, with a small chance of rain. High 64.

Now that the most recent cold front has drifted to our east, we’ll see sunny conditions each day into part of Friday. It will be cold, though, as our overnight low tomorrow night will be juts a tick above freezing…the coldest we’ve seen in a while!

Our next chance of rain is coming up on Friday as a cold front swings through. I’m still not sure when the most rain will fall, either Friday afternoon, Friday night or Saturday, but I’ll get a little better knowledge on that in the next day or two. As it is right now, be prepared Friday afternoon for some possible rain showers.

I’ll keep you informed on all of that, with a new weather update coming up soon that will include my first look at this weekend’s forecast!

It’s a cloudy, foggy, drizzly day around our area on this Sunday afternoon. We’ll clear up a bit tonight and tomorrow, but scattered showers and storms return tomorrow night and Tuesday. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for this week!

The rain we’re getting is rain we’ve needed after a very dry September. It honestly feels a bit like November this afternoon! We did break a rainfall record yesterday, the most rain on an October 19th in recorded history (weather records started at the airport in 1937). That’s very helpful!

More rain is coming in a couple different waves Monday night and Tuesday, then again either late Friday or on Saturday. Here’s the outlook for the next five days:

  • Tonight-Clouds and fog. Low 52.
  • Monday-Partly to mostly cloudy. Maybe a rain shower late. High 72.
  • Monday night-Rain likely with possible thunderstorms. Low 57.
  • Tuesday-Cloudy with showers and storms mainly early. High 65.
  • Wednesday-Becoming mostly sunny. High 63.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny. High 68.
  • Friday-Increasing clouds with scattered showers possible. High 65.

Tonight continues our cloudy and foggy trend, at least for a little while. We might have some clearing in spots by morning. The more I look at the forecast trends, I’m thinking Monday should be dry for most of us. That said, a rain shower by the end of tomorrow afternoon can’t be ruled out. By far, the better chances of rain are tomorrow night and Tuesday.

Thunderstorms are possible in that, including chances for a strong storm or two. For overnight, that means loud storms that may annoy pets and awaken children. So be prepared for that if it happens. We should see a decent amount of rain as a cold front moves through tomorrow night or Tuesday morning.

Once the front moves through, rain will be gone for a while. Expect the rain to end Tuesday afternoon, with dry days thanks to high pressure on Wednesday and Thursday.

From there, our next chance of rain is complicated. We’ve got chances of rain either on Friday afternoon or Saturday afternoon at this point thanks to a new cold front on its way. So I’ve included in the outlook a chance of showers on Friday. That may well be delayed to Saturday, though. We’ll see how it goes. It all depends on how much the high pressure slows down the new cold front at this point.

I’ll have more on all of that as we get closer to it. Have a great week!

There’s not a lot of time before the sports show begins on WETB, so I’ll have to make this a quick forecast. Here we go:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy. Low 38.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny. High 58.
  • Thursday night-Partly cloudy to mostly clear. Low 37.
  • Friday-Mostly sunny. High 65.
  • Saturday-Partly cloudy, with rain moving in late. High 72.
  • Sunday-Partly cloudy, some rain early in the day. High 74.

The cold front that just passed will bring us lows in the 30’s for a couple nights at least. By Saturday, a new cold front brings more rain, most of which could happen Saturday night and early Sunday.

I will have more updates on that in the coming days. have a great evening!
