Warmer weather is here, and it looks like it’s here to stay…at least for the next few days, anyway! Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast through the weekend!

Temperatures are getting close to 80 today, and we’ll be above that in the coming days. We do get a decent chance of rain and thunderstorms for Friday into the weekend. Here’s the forecast:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy. Low near 50.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny, maybe a stray shower or thunderstorm late. High 82.
  • Thursday night-Partly to mostly cloudy with a small chance of rain. Low 55.
  • Friday-Partly cloudy, some scattered afternoon showers and storms. High 82.
  • Saturday-Partly to mostly cloudy, with scattered shower and storms. High 83.
  • Sunday-Cloudy skies, with rain likely and maybe a thunderstorm. High 84.

It’s not exactly the summer weather pattern just yet, because a front will bring us better chances of showers and storms Friday and Saturday. That could be interesting when it comes to the playoff baseball games happening around the area headed into the weekend.

That’s all for the forecast…have a great day!

Not much is happening weather-wise for the next few days, so let’s get straight to the outlook for the next few days:

  • Tonight-Clear skies, gusty winds this evening. Low 36.
  • Tuesday-Mostly sunny, windy at times. Highs near 70.
  • Tuesday night-Mostly clear, with a low of 45.
  • Wednesday-Mostly sunny, highs near 80.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny, high 85.
  • Friday-Partly cloudy, with a small chance of rain in the afternoon. Highs near 80.

High pressure controls our weather, making things nice and calm for most of the rest of the week. As the center of the high pressure moves east, our temperatures start getting warmer, and it won’t be long before we see 80 once again.

Meanwhile, low pressure is organizing out West. That will start a cold front across the country, and that will be here late Friday. That’s when our next chance of rain will be, either late Friday or overnight into Saturday.

Thanks for looking at today’s forecast!

Our weather is just fine still, and we’ve got one more day of that to come! We do have our next chances of rain starting tomorrow night, coming from our south this time. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast through Monday!

This one will mostly be a quick one as well, but I do want to point out that while there are decent chances of scattered showers and storms Thursday night and Friday as low pressure moves onshore from the Gulf of Mexico, but the better rain chances will come from a cold front that’s organizing itself out west as we speak. Those better rain chances of the weekend will start on Saturday.

All that said, here’s the outlook for the coming days:

  • Tonight-Mostly clear, lows near 40.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny. Highs near 80.
  • Thursday night-Increasing clouds, a small chance of rain toward morning. Lows near 50.
  • Friday-Mostly cloudy, with scattered showers and possible thunderstorms. High 72.
  • Saturday-Mostly sunny, high 78.
  • Sunday-Clouds and rain, with gusty winds and possible thunderstorms. High 72.
  • Monday-Mostly sunny, windy and cooler. High 63.

I don’t expect any severe weather with any of this, but gusty winds could cause problems if there’s a lot of rain in some places on Sunday. Otherwise, just dodging rain on Friday and Sunday, with nice days in between is the plan through the weekend. Thanks for checking here for the forecast!

We have arrived at the post-NASCAR part of springtime! And thankfully, the weather is cooperating with dry, warm weather in the coming days. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast through Saturday!

High pressure will be hanging around through Thursday, before it gets pushed out of here by low pressure that’ll be developing in the Gulf of Mexico soon. That will bring scattered showers and storms Friday, before a cold front does the same on Sunday…maybe as soon as Saturday afternoon.

Here’s the outlook, and that’ll finish off the blog for the day!

  • Tonight-Mostly clear skies. Lows near 40.
  • Wednesday-Mostly sunny. High 75.
  • Wednesday night-Clear skies. Low 44.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny, some clouds come in late. High 81.
  • Friday-Cloudy conditions, morning rain showers. Possible thunderstorms in the afternoon. High 73.
  • Saturday-Partly cloudy, a small chance of rain or a thunderstorm late. High 78.

There you go! Happy Wednesday, everyone!

Hello, again! If you’re looking for the NASCAR at Bristol forecast for this evening, scroll down a post. This forecast is going to cover the rest of the week…all the way to Friday! As has been my custom, I’ll start outlook-first…a short bullet-point list of what’s happening in the coming days.

  • Tonight-Mostly clear, with a frost possible in the morning. Low, 33.
  • Monday-Mostly sunny. High 68.
  • Monday night-Mostly clear, low 37.
  • Tuesday-Mostly sunny, high 72.
  • Wednesday-Mostly sunny, high 76.
  • Thursday-Partly to mostly sunny. Highs near 80.
  • Friday-Increasing clouds, with a shower or thunderstorm possible. High 77.

Thankfully, our weather is calming down for the next few days, as it is for pretty much everybody. There’s a cold front approaching the Pacific Northwest today and tomorrow, but it’ll take a long time to cross the continent thanks to high pressure across the Eastern half of the country.

So, we’ll see calm weather for the next four days. As you can see above, things get warmer each day as we go through Friday, with maybe a few more clouds filtering in for Thursday into Friday.

Meanwhile, the next thing to bring us rain will develop as a low pressure in the Gulf of Mexico on Wednesday. It will move to the Louisiana coast, then to Alabama, then to the South Carolina coast by the end of the week. So, should the forecast hold together, rain will be possible Friday afternoon and maybe early Saturday. I’m not terribly confident on the timing of that just yet, though.

So, stay tuned to all the stations listed either on the About page or to the left of the blog, and you’ll get updated forecasts each day, either once or twice an hour. Thanks for looking at the blog today…Happy Easter!
