May 11, 2015 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

May 11, 2016

There was a lot of rain and storms waking us up this morning, but we have seen dry weather for much of the afternoon. We’ll continue to see dry spells interrupted by rounds of storms through Saturday, with mainly dry weather this weekend. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Monday!

Temperatures have been comfortable around the area today, despite it being a bit humid outside. Most of us were in the low to mid 70’s late this afternoon, with Boone close to 70 and Knoxville close to 80 as of 4pm. We’ll cool off this weekend, but it will be much more comfortable and less humid, too. Here’s the outlook:

Tonight-Mostly cloudy, a chance of a couple showers or storms overnight. Humid, with lows near 60.

Thursday-Partly to mostly cloudy, with scattered showers and storms during the day. High 82.

Thursday night-Partly cloudy, with some scattered showers and storms. Lows near 60.

Friday-Rain and possible storms likely in the morning, becoming partly cloudy late. High 75.

Saturday-Partly cloudy, a slight chance of a shower or thunderstorm. Highs near 70.

Sunday-Partly to mostly sunny, and cooler. High 65.

Monday-Partly to mostly sunny, a few showers and storms possible in the afternoon. High 73.

We are fortunate to have not seen any severe weather like in Oklahoma and western Kentucky over the past couple days, where they have had tornadoes. Those storms arrived last night, but were not severe and merely loud with some heavy rain and a lot of lightning. I know it’s not everyone’s opinion, but I like being awakened by a non-severe thunderstorm!

At any rate, a cold front will start moving through Tennessee and Kentucky tomorrow, and will be past Nashville tomorrow evening. We should stay dry for most of the morning, but in the afternoon showers and storms will arrive ahead of the cold front. We’ll see more storms Thursday night and into early Friday.

The cold front passes through our area on Friday morning, so that will be a cooler day in the mid 70’s as the afternoon will be dry. Another cold front moves through early Saturday, and may bring some rain as well. That will keep us in the 60’s as high pressure rolls in on Sunday.

If you’re listening in for Sullivan South baseball, the District I-AA Championship game against Unicoi County has been moved! Since the rain this morning rendered Sullivan Central’s field unplayable, the I-AAA title game between Dobyns-Bennett and Science Hill has been moved to J-Fred Johnson Stadium in Kingsport, and as of this typing, that game has just started.

So, the Rebels will still play Unicoi County, and they will play at around 7:30 tonight, possibly later. I’ll have the play-by-play starting a little bit before that on Top Gun Radio, 100.7 FM. You can also listen on the Tune in app. Go Rebels!
