May 25, 2016 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

May 25, 2016

Not much is changing in the forecast in the coming days, which is good news! It’s a summer-type pattern that may take a while to change, perhaps as long as next week. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through the weekend!

There are a few rain showers entering Southeast Kentucky, and some in middle Tennessee and Kentucky a bit farther away from us. Those might move in this evening, but they also could die out before they get here. The closer showers in Kentucky are rather weak, and there are no thunderstorms right now.

Meanwhile, cool spots and warm spots are as normal, the North Carolina mountains are in the low 70’s, while East Tennessee is in the low 80’s. Southwest Virginia mountains are looking at temperatures near 80 in a lot of locations as of 4pm. We’ll get warmer in the coming days with high pressure in control of our weather. Here’s the forecast:

Tonight-Partly cloudy, with a few rain showers possible. Low 58.

Thursday-Partly to mostly sunny, a small chance of a shower or thunderstorm. High 86.

Thursday night-Partly cloudy, maybe an evening shower or thunderstorm. Low 62.

Friday-Partly to mostly sunny, with a couple pop-up storms in the mountains in the afternoon. High 87.

Saturday-Mostly sunny, an outside chance of a stray shower or storm. High 88.

Sunday-Partly cloudy, a few showers and storms are possible. high 85.

Basically, the pattern stays similar from the last couple days. There are systems west and north of us, but neither are allowed to move very much thanks to high pressure blocking everything. There is a chance of a shower or thunderstorm each day all the way through Sunday.

The possibility still exists of a tropical system near the coast this weekend. That could dry us out before it arrives, but high pressure may also block it from moving much, or it could kick the storm away from us. Either way, I’ll keep looking at that in the coming days to see what happens.

If you look to the right side of the blog, you’ll see a new-ish “Headlines” section. I’ve included three links to Virginia Tech’s storm chasers and people along with them as they’re out in the Plains this week. They intercepted a storm near Dodge City, Kansas, that produced a bunch of tornadoes, more than one at the same time during numerous occasions, but still yet, none of the storms hit the city! Check any of the pages that talk about Storm Chases or the Hokie Storm Twitter for info on that. They had a great day yesterday!

Lower down on the page, there’s a new link. I learned last night of the Tri-Cities Football Club, our new semi-pro soccer team! They play games at Kermit-Tipton Stadium in Johnson City, and this is their first season! The Otters play games against teams from West Virginia, North Carolina, and Georgia. Click the link…they still have 4 home games left, and tickets are very affordable, so get out there and enjoy a game. The next one comes up on Saturday, June 4th!
