April 19, 2016 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

April 19, 2016

The clouds have arrived across the area to some degree, but it’ll be Thursday before most of us see much rain. After dark tomorrow, though, the rain begins. Thunderstorms might be possible as well. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Saturday!

Late this afternoon, temperatures were nice and warm across the area, from the low 80’s close to Knoxville to around 80 here in the Tri-Cities. Much of southwest Virginia stayed in the upper 70’s with a wonderful spot of low 70’s in the western North Carolina mountains. We’ll be cooler in the coming days, but not too much. Here’s the forecast:

Tonight-Partly cloudy. Low 48.

Wednesday-Partly cloudy, with a small chance of a shower or thunderstorm. High 78.

Wednesday night-Partly to mostly cloudy, a small chance of rain. Lows near 50.

Thursday-Partly cloudy, a few showers and storms late in the day. High 76.

Friday-Rain showers likely, with possible thunderstorms. Highs near 70.

Saturday-A few morning rain showers, decreasing clouds during the afternoon. High 74.

Two cold fronts start to change our weather tomorrow. One of them is north of us, stretching from West Virginia toward a center of low pressure in Illinois. That front will pass through tonight, bringing a few extra clouds like what we’re seeing this afternoon.

The second cold front is off to our west, from Illinois through Oklahoma and into Texas. That will slowly drift our way tonight through Thursday morning, before it pushes through our area on Friday. The closer that front gets, the more likely we’ll see showers and thunderstorms around the area.

Look for rain to be a small chance tomorrow during the day and also late Thursday afternoon. The best chance of rain looks to be Thursday night and into Friday, with heavy downpours possible at times. It shouldn’t be anything near the amount of rain seen in Houston in recent days, but enough to make driving difficult at times.

We might see a few lingering rain showers Saturday morning, but by the end of the day the rain will be gone. So we should have half a day of dry weather Saturday, and Sunday looks dry as well.

Thanks for checking here for the forecast! I’ll have a new look at things for the weekend coming up tomorrow afternoon. Have a great evening!
