#TriCitiesWx Race Week Forecast II; April 13, 2016

April 13, 2016

The weather is fine, and it’s going to stay that way…for most of us, for quite a while! Definitely good news with everything going on this week in Bristol! Welcome to the second Tri-Cities Weather Blog Race Week Forecast through Sunday!

It’s fantastic outside just after 5pm, a good supply of sunshine and temperatures near 70 in the Tri-Cities. Even in Boone it might be a tick on the chilly side close to 60, but it’s still a wonderful day. We have more of those to come, too! Here’s the outlook:

Tonight-Partly cloudy. Lows near 40.

Thursday-Partly to mostly sunny. High 72.

Thursday night-Partly cloudy. Low 42.

Friday-Partly cloudy, a small chance of rain southwest of the Tri-Cities & in the mountains. High 68.

Saturday-Mostly sunny. High 74.

Sunday-Mostly sunny. High 78.

For all intents and purposes, the main thing anyone going to the race track will need over the next four days is water to drink and sunscreen to apply every couple hours. There’s only a small chance of rain Thursday night and Friday, but if that happens it won’t be heavy at all.

Low pressure along a stationary front along the Gulf Coast will be what brings the clouds in tonight and through Friday. That low will develop tonight and get the front through Florida by the weekend. The best  chance of rain will be while it’s closer to us, but most of the rain chances should be southwest of the Tri-Cities this week. It appears we should stay mostly dry.

As that front moves away, our chances of rain slide closer to the magical zero mark as we head toward the weekend. Things look fine for both races on Saturday and Sunday!

There is a cold front that will develop west of us on Friday night in the Northern Plains, but the high pressure over our area will both keep the southern storm south of us, and keep that one west of us through at least Tuesday. Eventually, though, that cold front will move in, bringing chances of rain to our area for the middle of next week.

So, get out there and enjoy it! If you’re not hanging out with the NASCAR fans, it’s a good time to get outside and enjoy the outdoors. Or, get your ideas ready for severe weather safety. It’s what you do during the sunny days that will help you when the stormy days arrive! Get a little advice from the Severe Weather Safety Rules page, which you can find at the top right corner of the blog.

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