Thursday ended up being another sunny day, with highs in the low 80’s in parts of our area. Definitely a good thing! We have another day of sunshine tomorrow before rain arrives tomorrow night. Here’s today’s Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast!

Starting off with tonight, the sky should stay clear for the most part, until morning when patchy fog is possible. Lows will be near 54 degrees.

The long string of sunny, dry days we’ve enjoyed reaches its end tomorrow. It’ll still be a fantastic day, with high temperatures around 80. After that, clouds move in tomorrow night. Rain will arrive shortly thereafter for some of us. Overnight lows drop to around 58.

As far as the weekend is concerned, it’s a tale of two halves. Saturday will feature a cold front moving through, so rain showers will be scattered around, with possible thunderstorms. A cloudy day is likely when it’s not raining, with highs around 71.

Sunday looks mostly dry, but the front will still be close enough that it might create a couple rain showers during the late afternoon. Look for highs around 74.

What’s good for the Sunday forecast looks good for the Monday forecast, at least as it stands right now. We’ll have a partly cloudy sky much of the day, with a small chance of rain in the afternoon. Highs again will reach 74 degrees or so on the first day of next work week.

So tomorrow’s the day to enjoy the weather before the rain comes. I hope you have a fantastic day in the sunshine on Friday!

It’s been another beautiful day, and we have one more to go before I mention the word “rain” again. Welcome to this Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast through the weekend!

Here’s the outlook for the next four days:

  • Tonight-Mostly clear, some morning fog possible. Lows near 50.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny. Highs near 80.
  • Thursday night-Partly cloudy. Low 54.
  • Friday-Increasing clouds, a small chance of rain late (but mostly during the evening/overnight). High 78.
  • Saturday-Mostly cloudy with some scattered showers, maybe a thunderstorm. High 74.
  • Sunday- Partly cloudy with a small chance of rain. High 75.

October is the driest month of the year for us in a normal year, and for once 2020 is acting similar to regular life in that respect. It’s been a few days without rain, and tomorrow and most of Friday will continue that.

A cold front brings those clouds in Friday, and there’s a chance rain could arrive as early as Friday afternoon for some. But for the most part, the best chances of rain are going to be Friday night. Some scattered showers are possible Saturday, with a thunderstorm not out of the question.

Once all that is done, we should have mostly dry weather on Sunday. After that, it appears another front will be near us, bringing more rain chances early next week.

That’s all I have for now…will update once again on the forecast tomorrow. Have a great Thursday!

High pressure is controlling things around our area weather wise, which means there’s not much to report! So let’s get in and out of here with a quick Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast. On to the outlook first!

  • Tonight-Mostly clear, some morning fog. Lows near 50.
  • Wednesday-Mostly sunny. High 79.
  • Wednesday night-Mostly clear. Lows near 50.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny. Highs near 80.
  • Friday-Partly to mostly sunny with a small chance of rain late in the day. High 78.
  • Saturday-Cloudy with some scattered showers. High 74.

What we’re dealing with here is a lot of dry air around the area, keeping rain from happening. Clouds have gotten to parts of our area, but rain has not. That’s how it will be over the next few days, at least the dry part. The closer you get to Kentucky, the more chances of cloud cover you’ll see.

Either way, rain isn’t likely until a cold front comes through here on Saturday. If the front is a little early, we may see showers as soon as Friday afternoon. But the best chances of rain are Friday night and into Saturday.

That’s it for this forecast! I’ll work toward having more details in the blog tomorrow. Have a fantastic Wednesday!

We are right in the middle of October, our driest month of the year, and here’s a week where there won’t be much rain around. The details of a mostly dry week and when rain comes back are in today’s Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast!

It’s been chilly recently, with lows in the 30s and highs in the low 60s. We’ll get into the 70s in the coming days for highs and the upper 40s for much of the next five days. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Mostly clear. Low 45.
  • Monday-Mostly sunny. High 74.
  • Monday night-Mostly clear. Low 48.
  • Tuesday-Mostly sunny. High 75.
  • Wednesday-Mostly sunny. High 77.
  • Thursday-Partly to mostly sunny. High 78.
  • Friday-Increasing clouds with a small chance of rain. High 74.

During the course of the week, a cold front will approach our area, but just like typically happens this time of year (and similarly in summer), the front will stop, move north/northwest as a warm front, then become a cold front and try again.

Eventually, a cold front will be strong enough to move through here and bring in another shot of cold air. That process should start late Friday, with rain showers appearing to be likely on Saturday as the front moves through.

But for now, we’ve got cool mornings and warm afternoons, and dry weather to look forward to. Highs will be in the mid 70s early in the week to the late 70s toward the end of the week. Clouds will increase Friday, cooling things down a bit.

All that being said, it’s a good week to get out and go do things if you’ve got the ability. I hope you enjoy the fine week of weather ahead. I’ll have updates throughout the week just in case something in the forecast needs to change. Have great week!

Today, the high temperature happened around midnight. It was pretty warm ahead of the cold front, but once it passed, cold weather returned. We’ll see clouds decreasing tonight to cause frost and possibly freeze conditions in spots by morning. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for the weekend!

This should be all the rain we’re going to see today, as the clouds behind the cold front follow it away from our area. After a frosty start tomorrow, the weather looks fantastic this weekend! Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Decreasing clouds. Frost or freeze possible. Low 34.
  • Saturday-Mostly sunny. Highs near 60.
  • Saturday night-Mostly clear. Low 37.
  • Sunday-Mostly sunny. High 67.
  • Monday-Partly cloudy. High 72.

High pressure centers itself over our area on its way to the coast tonight into Saturday. That’s what will bring us the chilly weather. If you have plants outdoors that might have issues with the cold, you’ve got a few hours to protect them from it!

After that, Saturday will be a chilly day for the most part, then we warm up to near average on Sunday and above that on Monday. By Monday, a cold front may get close enough to us to spread some clouds our direction. It looks more and more at the moment that rain will likely not be an issue, but I’ll keep an eye on that and update more on Sunday morning.

That’s all for now, get out there and enjoy a fine fall weekend!
