November 26, 2020 #HappyThanksgiving #TriCitiesWx Forecast

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope it’s a wonderful day for you! To save us all some time on the holiday, I’m going outlook-only for today’s forecast, since things are calm for a bit. Here’s the forecast for the last few days of November!

  • Tonight-Mostly clear, with lows near 40.
  • Friday-Mostly sunny, high 62.
  • Friday night-Mostly cloudy, low 38.
  • Saturday-Partly to mostly sunny. High 57.
  • Sunday-Mostly sunny, with a small chance of rain late. High 62.

There you go…I’ll have more details on the forecast tomorrow, with a possible cold snap coming to start December. But we’ll cross that bridge when we get there. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s almost time to head out the door for the Thanksgiving holiday! But before I do that, it’s time for tonight’s Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast, starting with a little rain tonight. Here’s the outlook to start things off:

  • Tonight-Cloudy with rain showers and gusty winds. lows near 50.
  • Thursday-Partly cloudy with some morning rain possible. High 65.
  • Thursday night-Becoming mostly clear. lows near 40.
  • Friday-Mostly sunny. High 62.
  • Friday night-Mostly cloudy. Low 38.
  • Saturday-Mostly sunny. High 57.
  • Sunday-Mostly sunny, a small chance of afternoon rain. High 62.

Scattered showers have been around the area this afternoon, after taking a lot of time getting here during the day. I don’t anticipate any major problems tonight, but driving around might be interesting during a couple of downpours if you happen to be out in that tonight. A cold front will move through in the early morning hours, making light rain possible until mid- to late-morning.

From there, we’ll have fantastic weather. The afternoon of Thanksgiving tomorrow should be partly cloudy by sunset, and afternoon highs will be in the mid 60’s. We’ll have dry weather Friday before a cold front brings clouds (but no rain as it looks right now) in here Friday night.

That front moves through Saturday morning, providing us with a cool shot and a high to start the weekend in the upper 50s. Sunday will feature sunshine with a small chance of clouds and rain late in the day as we warm up into the low 60s.

There is a possibility that as we finish November and start December, a cold snap might be on the way. I’ll table that thought for now, and I’ll have a full look at that on Friday and Sunday.

I’ll have a quick forecast tomorrow, then I’ll be back with another full one on Friday heading into the rest of the holiday weekend. Happy Thanksgiving!

November 24, 2020 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

While it’s been a much more cloudy day than I expected, everything else (lack of rainfall and high temperature) have pretty much gone as expected today. We will see some warmer temperatures and some rain in today’s Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast!

At the time this post is written, the high temperature at Tri-Cities Airport is 57 degrees. That’s unofficial, of course, because there could well be a few minutes or 58 degrees that might change things. If that happens, I will have called it right. So while I type the outlook, I’ll be hoping for one more degree from the afternoon atmosphere at some point!

  • Tonight-Mostly cloudy. Low 35.
  • Wednesday-Partly to mostly cloudy, with rain possible in the afternoon. high 64.
  • Wednesday night-Rain showers likely, maybe a thunderstorm. Lows near 50.
  • Thursday-A couple morning rain showers, then becoming partly cloudy. High 64.
  • Friday-Partly to mostly sunny. high 64.
  • Saturday-Partly cloudy and cooler, high 58.

It’s interesting how cold fronts work sometimes. Some will bring rain and not change temperatures much, like the first front that comes through tomorrow night. We should have some rain potentially as soon as Wednesday afternoon from it. Others, like the one on Friday, won’t have much moisture to bring rain, but will make our weather cooler.

So, as you take in the outlook above, you see a high of 64 on consecutive days. Three, in fact. That means the temperatures don’t change hardly at all until we get to Saturday. Early Saturday morning, a cold front will zip through here while we’re sleeping. That will bring northwest winds in here and the typically colder weather from there will be here.

The good news is, our weather won’t be too terribly cold just yet. Overnight lows will likely be in the 30s again, but that’s about it. And even then, that’s not awful as long as you’re not out in it. And if you are, dressing with an extra layer will be fine. We’re still a month or two away from the really cold winter weather!

The rain came to an end shortly after midnight for many of us, and we’ll be able to stay rain free for a couple days before the next cold front starts to change our weather late Wednesday. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast through Friday!

As of around 3 PM this afternoon, we’d warmed up only to the low 50s today. That’s about it for the rest of today, but warmer weather is coming up the next couple days. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Mostly clear. Low 28.
  • Tuesday-Partly to mostly sunny. High 58.
  • Tuesday night-Partly cloudy. Low 35.
  • Wednesday-Increasing clouds, with a few rain showers possible late. High 62.
  • Thursday-A few morning rain showers, then cloudy skies. High 64.
  • Friday-Partly cloudy. High 62.

With the cold front from yesterday mostly in the Atlantic, we can turn to the next thing coming. High pressure will be our weather situation tomorrow, and it slides to the east on Wednesday. That will allow a cold front in on Wednesday.

For the middle of the week, clouds will increase through the day, then rain showers are going to start moving in from west to east during the afternoon. The bulk of the rain won’t get here, though, until Wednesday night. A few heavy downpours will be possible at times overnight.

Rain showers will continue into Thursday morning when the cold front moves through. After that, the day should remain mostly cloudy. Then on Friday, it should be a dry day once again.

We’ve entered the time of year when the movement of fronts, low pressure and high pressure is pretty fluid. Every couple days we’ll get a day or two of rain, followed by some dry weather. We’ll probably see about the same pattern all the way through March…with the word rain exchanged with frozen types at times this winter.

For now, all the precipitation will be rain, and at least in the next couple days, mostly overnight. Just be careful if you have to be out in it!

We begin the week of Thanksgiving with some rain on this Sunday evening. A cold front is about to move through, so some more scattered showers are possible through early Monday morning. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast through Thursday!

A few rain showers are moving through right now, with more light rain during the overnight hours. After that, Monday will finish off with dry weather and Tuesday will be dry before rain returns Wednesday afternoon. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Mostly cloudy, some scattered showers. Lows near 40.
  • Monday-Cloudy skies to start, becoming partly cloudy. High 52.
  • Monday night-Mostly clear and cold. Low 28.
  • Tuesday-Mostly sunny. High 58.
  • Wednesday-Increasing clouds, with some afternoon rain possible. High 61.
  • Thursday-A small chance of rain early, then becoming mostly sunny. High 62.

We haven’t had much rain in a while, so what we’re getting is certainly a good thing. Once the front moves through by morning, dry weather returns for two days and most of a third. As it looks right now, the front bringing rain won’t get it here until sometime Wednesday afternoon, which makes a dry start to the day a rather promising prospect.

Wednesday will be like today (Sunday), then Thursday will be like Monday. The only difference is that Thursday will likely feature a better chance of rain showers lingering into the morning hours…with temperatures a bit warmer as well.

I’ll update the forecast in the coming days, so make sure to keep coming here for the latest. Have a great week!
