May 23, 2016 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

May 23, 2016

There are a couple rain showers close to Blacksburg as of 4pm this afternoon, but that’s a long way up I-81 from here! So it appears we should stay mostly dry tonight and going all the way through most if not all of Wednesday. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Friday!

As we start to move into the latter part of the afternoon, temperatures are warming up in the Virginia and Tennessee portions of our area. More clouds in the mountains has those locations struggling to hit 60, but most in Southwest Virginia are at least in the mid 60’s, with the Tri-Cities and East Tennessee above the 70 degree mark today.

High pressure will keep most organized rain way out west in the coming days, so it’ll be mainly dry through the course of the week. Rain chances do go up, however, later in the week. Here’s the outlook:

Tonight-Partly cloudy, maybe patchy fog in the morning. Lows near 50.

Tuesday-Mostly sunny. Highs near 80.

Tuesday night-Partly cloudy. Low 52.

Wednesday-Partly to mostly sunny, there could be a pop-up shower or thunderstorm in the late afternoon. High 83.

Thursday-Mostly sunny, maybe a shower or thunderstorm late, but mainly dry. High 85.

Friday-Partly sunny, with a few afternoon showers and storms possible. High 88.

Low pressure, a cold front, and a stationary front are combining to give the Plains some consternation today, as severe thunderstorms fired up out there yesterday. The same may be happening later this afternoon, with more of that in the coming days.

All of the storms are staying out there because a big high pressure area has centered near us, and that’s blocking the movement of much of any weather our direction. The low pressure off the coast is moving out, so throughout the rest of the evening, any of the rain that could be close will be moving away.

The high pressure means organized showers and storms will stay away, and we’ll be dry tomorrow for sure and probably for most of Wednesday. By the latter part of the week, though, we’re going to enter summer mode in the forecast, which means sunny and very warm, dry conditions. A small chance of an afternoon shower or thunderstorm is in the forecast, but the majority of us won’t see rain until most likely Friday or the weekend at this point.

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