We ended up right at our average temperature this afternoon, and the rain we saw yesterday did go away temporarily. We’ll get through part of Tuesday before rain returns…and we’ll see a lot of rain for the rest of the week. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Friday!

The coldest weather we’ll see this week will be tonight. Warm air coming in ahead of low pressure and a cold front will help us stay warm after our partly cloudy night tonight with lows around 25. The word “rain” is featured a lot in the rest of this week’s forecast, so here’s the outlook:

  • Tuesday-Increasing clouds, with a small chance of afternoon rain. High 48.
  • Tuesday night-Rain likely, could mix with sleet or snow in the mountains. Low 38.
  • Wednesday-Partly cloudy with a few rain showers off and on. High 54.
  • Thursday-Cloudy with mainly morning rain showers. Highs near 60.
  • Friday-Mostly cloudy with off-and-on rain. High 53.

Despite the mention of all this rain, it won’t be all rain all the time this week. Rain increases from southwest to northeast tomorrow afternoon, so places like Greeneville will likely see rainfall before Glade Spring. By the evening, though, we’ll all have a good dose of liquid precipitation. Some of that may mix with sleet or snow in the mountains tomorrow night.

On Wednesday, we’ll have a good deal of clouds and rain early, but during the middle of the day, we might be in a dry slot. If that happens, we’ll just have cloudy conditions for a while. That would be good news, but steady and sometimes heavy rain returns Wednesday night through early Thursday.

Thursday looks to be so warm because rain might well end by early afternoon. Should that happen, temperatures might spring up into the mid 60’s. I’m not so sure about that right now, hence the prediction of around 60. We’ll see scattered rain showers moving back in for Friday, with a cooler day expected.

Be advised that with all the rain this weekend, things might get difficult from a flooding standpoint later this week. If you’re in an area that normally floods, make sure you take your normal “move to higher ground” precautions. That includes stuff in the basement if water typically gets in there, too!

I’ll have more on all of it with the next forecast, and on the air as well! You can hear me on WHCB 91.5 FM, 96.3 The Possum (which is also 870 AM and 100.7 FM), and 97.3 Love FM–which can also be heard on 1090 AM, 100.3 FM, 1230 AM, and 103.3 FM. I’m on the air at least once an hour during the day on each station, and twice on some of them. Make sure you listen in!

It’s going to be a cloudy night to finish off Valentine’s Day, with a small chance of rain. It won’t be terribly cold, though. Rain looks to be the big story for much of the forecast into next week. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Monday, outlook first!

  • Tonight-Cloudy with a small chance of rain. Low 42.
  • Friday-Mostly cloudy, some scattered afternoon showers. High 57.
  • Friday night-Mostly cloudy, with rain. Low 43.
  • Saturday-Cloudy with scattered showers. Highs near 50.
  • Sunday-Mostly cloudy with scattered showers. High 57.
  • Monday-Partly cloudy, a small chance of rain. High 55.

A cold front is on its way to our area, bringing rain for tomorrow afternoon through the weekend. There will be breaks in the rain from time to time, though. It officially will pass through tomorrow night, but won’t get too far away. That in itself will bring off and on rain showers through the weekend.

The best chance at a dry day in the forecast is Monday, but some showers are possible. Dry weather is possible for part of Tuesday before rain sets in toward the middle of next week. As it looks right now, heavy rain is possible for the latter part of next week.

I’ll keep an eye on that in the coming days and keep everyone informed right here. Have a great evening!

It was a cool and windy day across the Tri-Cities today, but we have a fantastic day ready tomorrow. Rain does come in starting on Friday. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Sunday!

All is well through tomorrow night, as high pressure keeps us dry, with warmer conditions. Highs will be in the low 60’s tomorrow with sunshine abundant until later in the afternoon. Here’s the outlook for that through Sunday:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy. Low 24.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny. High 62.
  • Thursday night-Partly cloudy. Lows near 40.
  • Friday-Mostly cloudy, with some scattered showers. high 57.
  • Saturday-Mostly cloudy, with rain likely. Highs near 50.
  • Sunday-Mostly cloudy, with scattered showers and storms. High 55.

By tomorrow night, clouds will move into our area, and on Friday some rain showers will be around. It shouldn’t rain all day, with just scattered showers off and on during the day. Saturday looks similar, as there could be a decent amount of time Saturday afternoon rain free.

Sunday looks like the wettest day of the weekend, as low pressure will be just west of us by then. So be prepared for some heavy rain and maybe a thunderstorm or two to finish off the weekend.

I’ll have more on the weekend coming up in the next blog, with specifics on when those breaks might happen. Have a great evening!

Rain has definitely dominated the day weather wise, but with warmer than average conditions, we’ll take it! We’ll cool off tomorrow and dry out for the next couple days, then multiple storms systems raise rain chances starting Friday. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through the weekend!

As of nearly 4 PM, we appear to be nearly halfway to a record wettest February 12th on record! Since 1937, the wettest it’s ever been on this day on the calendar is 0.97 inches of rain on this date in 1948! I’ll keep an eye on it, but we might get close to that with some more rain that has fallen in the past hour.

All of that said, rain should come to an end this evening. We’ll clear out for tomorrow and Thursday before rain returns. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Scattered showers this evening, then partly cloudy. Lows near 30.
  • Wednesday-Partly cloudy to mostly sunny, and windy. High 48.
  • Wednesday night-Partly cloudy. Low 23.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny. Highs near 60.
  • Friday-Mostly cloudy with scattered showers. High 58.
  • Saturday-Mostly cloudy with scattered showers. High 52.
  • Sunday-Mostly cloudy with scattered showers. High 52.

A cold front is just west of us, and will move through tonight. Once that happens, rain should come to an end. Be aware, the farther north of the Tri-Cities you are, the more likely this ends as light snow in the morning.

After that, we dry out and cool off. Tomorrow should be windy and chilly, with highs around our average for this time of year. It won’t feel that warm, though, with colder weather tomorrow night.

We warm up nicely ahead of a new cold front on Thursday, then the clouds move back in Thursday night. Rain comes in with that on a scattered basis on Friday as that front moves through. Low pressure in southeast Texas will move north toward us by Saturday, bringing us a good chance of rain for the weekend.

I’ll have a better idea of how much rain this weekend and when in the next forecast. Have a great evening!

It’s been a chilly, rainy end to the weekend. A warm front will make things warmer this week, but there’s a lot of rain in this week’s Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast…with maybe thunderstorms!

Sunday finished off below average temperature wise (at least for the high) thanks to all the clouds around. Everything adjusts above average for a couple days, then back down on Wednesday…then we go up later this week. Our winter temperature roller coaster continues. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Clouds and fog, some light rain or drizzle. Low 38.
  • Monday-Mostly cloudy, scattered mainly morning showers. High 57.
  • Monday night-Clouds and scattered showers, with possible thunderstorms. Lows near 50.
  • Tuesday-Mostly cloudy, with scattered showers and storms. High 62.
  • Wednesday-Partly to mostly sunny and windy. High 48.
  • Thursday-Partly cloudy, a small chance of rain. High 57.
  • Friday-Mostly cloudy with scattered showers. High 58.

A cold front is out to our west, and that’s shooting the dreary conditions all the way over here from Arkansas. That front makes its way across Tennessee tomorrow and Tuesday, increasing our chances of rain, with maybe a short break tomorrow afternoon.

When the front comes through Monday night into Tuesday, the rain could also include a few thunderstorms. Heavy rain is definitely a possibility on Tuesday as the front moves into and past our area.

Then, we get a break for a while. The air behind the front won’t be terribly cold, with temperatures Wednesday right at our average or just a tick below. We warm up nicely into the 50’s for Thursday before a new cold front brings rain chances back up on Friday.

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