June 21, 2016 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

June 21, 2016

Storms are coming, and some of them could be severe as we go through this evening. After that, we’ll have thunderstorms occasionally through the rest of the week, but some dry spells, too. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Saturday!

A Severe Thunderstorm Warning is up for far western Lee County, Virginia, until 5:45pm, as a storm coming out of Kentucky headed for Sneedville will cross through the tip of Virginia on its way. There are more storms coming in from Kentucky and West Virginia, and a Severe Thunderstorm Watch is up because of that for all of Southwest Virginia until 10pm. Damaging winds and hail the size of quarters or larger are possible with any of the storms tonight.

Meanwhile, it’s cloudy in Bristol just after 5pm. Storms have not yet arrived on the Tennessee side of the state line, but a storm did fire up in Scott County, Virginia, earlier, only to die out before it reached the northern parts of Bristol, Virginia. That’s what is bringing the clouds to town at the moment.

Storms are likely to continue tonight and part of tomorrow before we get a short break. Then, a cold front actually moves through, bringing a good chance of more storms late Thursday. Here’s the outlook:

Tonight-Scattered showers and storms, mainly this evening. Cloudy late, low 68.

Wednesday-Partly cloudy, with a few scattered showers and storms. High 85.

Wednesday night-A couple evening showers or storms, otherwise partly cloudy. Low 67.

Thursday-Partly to mostly sunny, a couple storms possible late in the afternoon. Highs near 90, better chances of rain Thursday night.

Friday-Partly sunny, a few showers and thunderstorms. High 88.

Saturday-Mostly sunny, slight chance of an afternoon shower or thunderstorm. Highs near 90.

A front is just north of us, and won’t move much farther our way before it converts to a warm front and heads back north. It is attached to a cold front that is way out in the Rockies, or will be by the end of tomorrow when it arrives in the Plains.

That cold front will be near the Ohio River Thursday night, therefore bringing our increase in storm chances. The front moves through Friday morning, but doesn’t really cool us off all that much. In fact, by Saturday, we should be right back to near 90 degrees by the end of the afternoon.

I’ll have updates tonight on Twitter, you can see them on the right side of the blog. You can always tweet me @wxmc if you have any questions.
