May 10, 2016 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

May 10, 2016

I know there’s a lot of baseball going on, and it’s Spring, so people want to be out in general. The forecast doesn’t look all that bad for that, except for off-and-on chances for rain and storms that are in the forecast the rest of the week. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast through Saturday!

It’s been a warm day, with a mix of clouds and sun for the most part. There are storms way off to our west, and two cold fronts through Saturday will keep rain chances in the forecast for a while. Here’s the outlook:

Tonight-Partly cloudy, scattered storms possible. Lows near 60.

Wednesday-Partly cloudy, scattered showers and storms from time to time. High 82.

Wednesday night-Partly cloudy, with a few showers and storms. Lows near 60.

Thursday-Partly cloudy, scattered showers and storms. High 84.

Friday-Rain likely, with thunderstorms. High 75.

Saturday-Early rain showers, becoming partly cloudy late. High 73.

We have a warm front not all that far to our north, which keeps some clouds around, and occasional rain showers and storms will move through thanks to that. The farther it moves north, the more we’ll get a break from the rain, except for a cold front that is in the northern Plains right now. It will to dive southeast in the coming days, moving through about half of Tennessee and Kentucky on Thursday, and finish the rest off while going through our area on Friday morning.

So expect clouds and sun for most of the daytime hours of the next few days. Also keep a look out for dark clouds and lightning while listening for thunder. There’s a good chance of storms each day, but they won’t last all day, either. Keep plans as they are if you’re going to be outdoors, but make sure you have a good place indoors to go in case of storms.

The cold front will move through Friday, and rain should end on Saturday. A second cold front will move out of here by then, and that will dry us out, at least temporarily. It looks like we’re getting an early start on the summertime daily shower and thunderstorm routine here in the middle of Spring!

I’ll have more updates tomorrow, a little earlier than this post due to baseball. The Sullivan South Rebels are in the championship game of the District I-AA Tournament, and I’ll be back in Kingsport broadcasting the game tomorrow evening! We’ll start just before first pitch at 6pm, just in time to get lineups going and get ready for baseball. The Rebels will play either Unicoi County or Sullivan East, depending on who wins their game tonight. Tune in at 870 AM or 100.7 FM in the Tri-Cities for all the action, and make sure to tweet me if you’re listening!
