Well, it’s been quite a while since I’ve done one of these! I’ve been busy these past months moving five radio stations to our new home in Bluff City, so things have gotten crazy. All that said, I figured with NASCAR in town and College Gameday up on the mountain, it might be a good idea to drop in a forecast. So here we go…Tri-Cities first for racing and college football…here’s the outlook on today’s Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast!
- Tonight-Mostly clear, with some fog in the morning. Low 53.
- Friday-Mostly sunny. High 84.
- Friday night-Mostly clear, low 55 (more on this later).
- Saturday-Mostly sunny. High 84.
- Sunday-Mostly sunny. High 84.
- Monday-Mostly sunny. High 85.
- Tuesday-Partly cloudy, with a small chance of a shower or thunderstorm. High 87.
We’re stuck in a dry weather trend, and with everything going on within a hundred miles or so of here in the next few days, that turns out to be a good thing! Weather should not be a problem at all through Monday, with the exception of some morning fog from time to time. The only exception is a small chance of rain or a thunderstorm on Tuesday as a (very) weak cold front approaches…it may not make it through here.
So, let’s talk temperatures. Many folks will be out either for NASCAR or high school football tomorrow night–I’ll be at Sullivan East vs. Seymour tomorrow night on 96.3 The Possum–and the weather will be perfect! Things should start out as you head out in the low 80’s toward kickoff, and temperatures will drop into the mid 70’s by 8 or 8:30 (halftime for football), and maybe cooling off into the upper 60’s by the time things are done. That low temperature in the mid 50’s will happen early tomorrow morning.
If you’re up in Boone for App State’s game against Troy on Saturday, with College Gameday in town thanks to the big win over Texas A&M this past weekend, prepare for cooler temperatures. Boone is typically 8-10 degrees cooler than the Tri-Cities, barring clouds or atmospheric inversions. That will be the case in the coming days, so mornings will be quite chilly up there! Even getting into the 70s late in the day will be fine, but the wind gusting around atop the mountain can be tough for a chunk of the day. Especially if you go jumping into the duck pond…which is not advised for several reasons!
Regardless of all of that, you can’t get much better weather for September than this! Hopefully you’ll be able to get out there and enjoy it!
