I’m back! I’ve been on vacation the past week, and I’m working on a blog that will be up soon on that very thing. Weather hasn’t been all that interesting except for incredibly dry and record temperatures at times since I was last in the forecast chair. I do have a forecast ready for this week!

  • Tonight-Mostly clear, low 55.
  • Monday-Mostly sunny. Highs near 90.
  • Monday night-Partly cloudy, a slight chance of rain. Low 62.
  • Tuesday-Partly to mostly sunny with a small chance of rain. High 87.
  • Wednesday-Mostly sunny with a small chance of rain. High 84.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny and cooler. Highs near 80.
  • Friday-Mostly sunny, high 85.

We do have a cold front that will be on its way through here tomorrow night, and that will bring a small chance of a stray shower or thunderstorm tomorrow night through Wednesday. Overall, though, I don’t see any organized rain chances this week, with temperatures staying above average for most of the week. Wednesday through Friday should be cooler than this weekend.

Stay tuned to this blog in the coming days for my story of the National Weather Association annual meeting that I attended last week in Huntsville. A lot of stuff happened, so it’s taking a bit to get it all written out. It’s an interesting story, and I hope you’ll enjoy it once I’m finished. Have a great week!

Here’s a quick forecast for the next few days. Most things look calm for us, while just off the coast of Florida, things are very much not that way. Here’s the outlook through Friday:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy. Low 62.
  • Tomorrow-Mostly sunny. Highs near 90.
  • Tuesday night-Mostly clear. Low 62.
  • Wednesday-Mostly sunny with a small chance of rain. High 91.
  • Thursday-Mostly cloudy. High 82.
  • Friday-Partly cloudy. High 83.

The small chance of rain on Wednesday exists because of a weak cold front that will be moving through. I think the best chances of rain will be in the higher elevations. The good news is, temperatures will be much cooler behind the front.

Thanks for checking here for the forecast, have a great evening!

We begin a new month with weather like the previous one. While August-type weather will lead us into September, we can expect cooler temperatures as the month progresses. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for this week!

First of all, Hurricane Dorian is one of the most intense storms we’ve seen in the Atlantic or the Caribbean. It’s just gone through the Abacos islands just east of Florida, and is generally headed that way. There is hope that the storm could curve out to sea, even now. But the closer it gets to land, even that could still be a major problem.

As for us, we’re seeing fantastic weather. We’ll heat up ahead of a cold front that will move through late this week, where things should cool off nicely to finish the week. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Mostly clear. Lows near 60.
  • Monday-Partly to mostly sunny with a slight chance of rain late in the afternoon. High 87.
  • Monday night-Partly cloudy, maybe a shower or storm in the evening. Low 63.
  • Tuesday-Mostly sunny. High 88.
  • Wednesday-Partly cloudy. Highs near 90.
  • Thursday-Mostly cloudy with a couple rain showers. High 84.
  • Friday-Partly cloudy. High 83.

We’ll be watching Dorian carefully all week long, as there won’t be any organized sources of rain that will change our weather too much in the coming days. A cold front does move through Wednesday or Thursday, and that (along with Dorian being at its closest to us) will bring some extra clouds and maybe a rain shower or two.

The cold front won’t have a lot of moisture with it, mainly because of tthe hurricane using it all up. Storms like that tend to have a lot of high pressure around them–not to mention in the eye–so while weather is terrible on the coast at times like this, it tends to be quite nice around here.

Temperatures should be in the low 80’s during the day and drop to around 60 at night in early September. We’ll be well above that much of this week for high temperatures, with lows right at our average.

Thanks for checking here for the forecast, have a great week! And make sure that if you know folks from Virginia Beach to Miami along the coast, that they know what’s going on the next few days weather wise.

Now that the cold front is gone, our weather turns nice for the next few days! Here’s a quick Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast through the weekend:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy, some patchy morning fog. Low 54.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny. High 81.
  • Thursday night-Partly cloudy. Low 52.
  • Friday-Mostly sunny. High 87.
  • Saturday-Mostly sunny. High 88.
  • Sunday-Partly cloudy, maybe a shower or thunderstorm in the mountains. High 85.

High pressure will be the dominating force in our weather through Saturday, and then on Sunday a weak cold front will come through the wrong way–northeast to southwest. That could bring us a few more clouds and maybe some rain. Moisture looks lacking with that for right now.

I’m keeping an eye on Tropical Storm Dorian, which is right now near Puerto Rico. As it stands right now, it could be a major hurricane going into Florida late this weekend. There’s a chance it could start to bring us rain after Labor Day.

Thanks for checking here for the forecast! I’ll keep watching all the latest with the tropical storm as it appears it will strengthen in the coming days as it gets closer to land.

Cloudy skies are hanging on to the area this evening, with some rain off to our west. It appears the rain will stay out there for a while, but clouds will hang around until then. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for this week!

Temperatures have been below our average (around 85 degrees) this weekend, and we’ll likely stay that way throughout the next five days for high temperatures, while lows should stay near normal for late August in the coming days. Rain is coming, and is featured in spots in the outlook:

  • Tonight-Cloudy skies. Low 63.
  • Monday-Mostly cloudy, a couple rain showers possible. High 77.
  • Monday night-Clouds and rain likely. Low 65.
  • Tuesday-Mostly cloudy, some scattered showers and storms. Highs near 80.
  • Wednesday-Partly cloudy, main rain chances will be early in the day. High 82.
  • Thursday-Partly cloudy. Highs near 80.
  • Friday-Mostly sunny. High 83.

A cold front is organizing west of us at the surface, and as weather pros call it a shortwave is located across the middle of the country way up in the atmosphere. Those will move our way early in the week, increasing rain chances for Monday night and Tuesday.

The cold front passes by the end of Wednesday, leading to high pressure and a ridge in the upper level patterns…or at least a level–or zonal–pattern. That will help us with dry weather from the latter part of Wednesday through the end of the week.

Temperatures should warm up from near 80 on Thursday (the day after the front comes through), to the low to mid 80’s on Friday. Things could warm back up to August like levels once again this weekend. In fact, some of the long range models show a big dry trend through early next week.

I’ll have updates as possible through the course of the coming days. Have a great week!
