July 6, 2016 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

July 6, 2016

There were some rain showers this morning, but it’s become a dry, hot day as we’ve worked through into the afternoon. Storms are on the way for this evening through tomorrow before things get hotter for the weekend. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through the weekend!

As of 5pm today, there are some scattered storms in eastern Kentucky, and a bigger line of storms farther west in Middle Tennessee, where there is a severe thunderstorm watch until 9pm. There are a few storms in Southwest Virginia right now, including a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for Lee County. We’ll see what happens to those storms farther west to see what they do when they arrive.

That said, temperatures are in the low 80’s in the mountains, warming up into the mid and upper 80’s here in the Tri-Cities, with 90’s farther south in East Tennessee. Rain will cool that off for some folks this evening. Here’s the outlook:

Tonight-Partly cloudy, with a couple rounds of showers and storms likely, one this evening and one overnight. Low 70.

Thursday-Partly cloudy, with scattered showers and storms off and on through the day. High 84.

Thursday night-Partly cloudy. A small chance of a lingering shower or thunderstorm. Low 68.

Friday-Mostly sunny and hot, only a couple pop-up showers or storms in the afternoon. High 94.

Saturday-Mostly sunny, with a few scattered afternoon storms possible. Highs near 90.

Sunday-Partly cloudy to mostly sunny, with a slight chance of a shower or thunderstorm in the afternoon. Highs near 90.

Over the past couple days, we’ve had warm, muggy conditions, with scattered showers and a few storms rolling through, keeping temperatures up overnight and down during the day. Today, the sun has returned, and we’re quickly getting up close to 90 again.

Storms right now are near Cookeville, with another line northwest of Nashville. Those look to be coming our way in the coming hours, the first this evening, the second later on tonight. There’s evidence to indicate that storms are possible ahead of a cold front tomorrow.

Then, we get the return of summer heat. We’ll see a mainly dry day Friday, with highs around 94. A cold front drifts through Friday night into Saturday, so we’ll see a few more showers and storms Friday night and early Saturday.

The front stops near Chattanooga on Saturday, if it even gets that far. It’ll still be close enough for a small chance of rain and storms late Sunday. Temperatures will top out at close to 90 degrees both days this weekend with mainly dry conditions.

Summertime weather is going to continue for quite a while, so make sure to adjust accordingly, and get indoors if storms are close. Thanks for checking here for the forecast, have a great evening!
