Yes, it’s still Spring, technically. However, summer weather has arrived! And it looks like more warmth and humidity will stick around in the next few days. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through the weekend!

There’s not a lot in the way of storms right now, but looking out my window toward Holston Mountain, there are some monstrous cumulus clouds (likely cumulus congestus, mainly) to the east of the Tri-Cities. But there are no storms just yet as we pass 7 PM. Those will dissipate tonight, but return tomorrow. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy. Low 58.
  • Thursday-Sunny with a small chance of a shower or thunderstorm. High 88.
  • Thursday night-Partly cloudy. Lows near 60.
  • Friday-Mostly sunny and humid, with a stray shower or thunderstorm possible. High 89.
  • Saturday-Sunny, hot and humid. Maybe an afternoon thunderstorm. Highs near 90.
  • Sunday- Sunny, hot and humid. Maybe an afternoon thunderstorm. Highs near 90.

It’s definitely a preview of summer, that’s for sure! We’ll have warm and humid days from tomorrow through the weekend. Sunshine will persist until any isolated showers and storms pop up, mainly during the late afternoon and evening hours.

As of right now, it appears that we won’t see any organized weather moving in for quite a while. High pressure is blocking things to our north and west from moving through, other than the occasional warm front moving in from the southwest, which is happening now. If you like this kind of weather, get out and enjoy it the next few days!

We’ve entered into a summer-type weather pattern in our area, with sunshine, warm weather, and afternoon showers and storms popping up at times. The forecast looks summer-ish all the way through Sunday. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Monday!

Those pop-up storms haven’t popped today, perhaps thanks to some clouds today into the early afternoon. Things warm up for us in the coming days, making the weather feel like summer with potential pop-up storms each day until a cold front moves through Monday. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy. Low 54.
  • Friday-Partly to mostly cloudy at times with a few showers and storms possible. High 83.
  • Friday night-Partly cloudy with a small chance of rain. Low 58.
  • Saturday-Partly to mostly sunny, maybe a pop-up shower or thunderstorm in the afternoon. High 85.
  • Sunday-Mostly sunny. High 87.
  • Monday-Cloudy with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs near 80.

We are stuck between cold fronts to our north and west in the next few days, and that will contribute to things getting warmer with afternoon “heat of the day” storms possible.

Tomorrow might be an exception to that, though, as storms that are currently in Indiana and Illinois could potentially bring us rain and storms through early afternoon tomorrow. We’ll see how that goes, but be aware that the best chance of rain might be early in the afternoon on Friday.

After that, it’ll be a summer-type weekend. We’ll see a good amount of sunshine, and those pesky, hard to predict afternoon storms might pop up each day. Highs Saturday and Sunday should top out in the mid to upper 80’s.

The cold front out west that might cause severe weather in the Plains in the next couple days finally moves out of that area and near us late Sunday and will move through on Monday. That will bring better chances of rain and storms, especially as that front moves through.

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

A little bit of light rain is falling in spots near and northwest of Bristol as we go into the evening hours, but there’s not much going on elsewhere. Situations similar to that are likely through the weekend. Here’s the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast through Sunday!

We will be south of any cold, stationary or warm fronts in the next four days, and most of the weather action will be well to our west. That said, there’s a chance something might pop up each day of the next four as well. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy, with a couple rain showers. Low 49.
  • Thursday-Partly cloudy with a small chance of rain. High 78.
  • Thursday night-Cloudy with a few rain showers or storms late. Low 54.
  • Friday-Partly cloudy, with some rain showers or storms possible. High 82.
  • Saturday-Partly sunny with a slight chance of rain or a thunderstorm. High 84.
  • Sunday-Partly cloudy with a slight chance of rain or a thunderstorm. High 85.

In a general sort of way, that outlook is written as the forecast is going to be. For the majority, we’ll see off-and-on sunshine. For a few, a rain shower or thunderstorm could pop up pretty much at any time.

None of that chance is worth changing any plans over, though, but be aware of the chances of rain and storms if you’re outdoors, and get indoors if you hear thunder!

Our next big chance of rain does come up on Monday as one of those fronts that will be causing issues out west between now and then does finally get through here. But between now and then, most of us will have dry weather!

The sun has been out for most of this Tuesday, and it’s starting to look like a similar story will be told about most of the week. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Saturday!

Other than a small chance of rain each day after tomorrow, we should be fine for the most part weather-wise. Here’s the outlook for more:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy, fog possible in the morning. low 44.
  • Wednesday-Partly to mostly sunny. High 72.
  • Wednesday night-Partly to mostly cloudy. Lows near 50.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny, small chance of rain late. High 78.
  • Friday-Partly cloudy, with a couple stray showers and storms possible late. High 83.
  • Saturday-Partly cloudy with a few rain showers possible in the afternoon. High 85.

While we’ll have a couple cold fronts pretty close to us in the coming days, we won’t see anything organized get in here through Saturday as it looks right now.

So, that leads to a summer-type pattern, especially late in the week. So be prepared on Thursday through Saturday for storms to pop up. But for the most part, I think dry weather will be the featured talent in the weather drama (or lack thereof) for the entire forecast.

I’ll have updates in the coming days. Have a great Wednesday!

It’s quite cool out there for a day that’s near the middle of May here in the Tri-Cities. Thankfully, these cold snaps have become cool snaps here in Spring, a sign that summer is definitely near! Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Friday!

The sun is out in force this afternoon, and will make a regular appearance throughout the rest of the week. There will be some clouds around from time to time, and toward the latter part of the week, some of those may bring us some rain. It does look mostly dry for the next four days. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy. Low 43.
  • Tuesday-Partly to mostly sunny. High 67.
  • Tuesday night-Partly cloudy. Low 44.
  • Wednesday-A mix of clouds and sun. High 74.
  • Thursday-Partly cloudy, a small chance of rain late. High 78.
  • Friday-Partly cloudy with a couple showers and storms possible late. High 82.

I can’t say there will be complete sunshine every day this week, because various storm systems will get close to us this week to keep some clouds around our area. I think most of them stay far enough away from us to keep us in dry weather through Wednesday.

After that, we’ll start to see a few rain showers on Thursday. It won’t be an all-day rain event, nor will we all see any rain at all, but there is a chance. We’ll be back to temperatures just above average by then as well.

On Friday, expect more clouds and a better chance of rain in the afternoon. Still, I think many of us can get through the week without rain until Thursday evening, when some storms will be possible.

So, for the most part, it looks like dry weather this week, with some rain showers possible from Wednesday night through Friday. That’s not so bad, especially once we warm up some more in a couple days. Thanks for checking here for the forecast, have a wonderful evening and Tuesday!
