July 8, 2016 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

July 7, 2016

Rain started the day, and sunshine is prominent now that we’re nearing the end of it. But as we’ve seen the last couple days, more storms are on the way for this evening. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog Forecast for tonight through Monday!

As of 5:30 PM, storms are nearing I-75 in Tennessee and Kentucky. Those will be heading our way this evening. The good news is that it’s a line of storms, so the likelihood is small (but not zero!). The main threat with these storms will be damaging winds, and possibly some hail along with the normal lightning with storms.

It’s been a cool day, thanks to clouds early on. We will see heat returning just before a cold front moves through early this weekend. Here’s the outlook:

Tonight-Partly cloudy, with scattered showers and storms this evening. Low 70. Storms could be strong to severe.

Friday-Partly to mostly sunny, with only a small chance of afternoon showers and storms. High 92.

Friday night-Partly cloudy, scattered showers and storms likely overnight. Low 70.

Saturday-Scattered showers and storms early in the day, partly cloudy later in the afternoon. High 90.

Sunday-Mostly sunny. High 87.

Monday-Mostly sunny early, showers and storms possible by afternoon. High 86.

I’ll be watching that line of thunderstorms as it makes its way from I-75 into our area in the coming hours. Make sure to get indoors if you hear thunder this evening and you’re outside! Storms could not only bring lightning, but could have winds strong enough to bring down trees or power lines, and hail is a possibility as well.

A cold front that is near Minnesota right now will move toward the Ohio River by Saturday, and then pass through our area Saturday afternoon. That’s what will bring our next decent chance of rain Friday night and into Saturday. The end of the rain will have a lot to do with when the front gets here on Saturday, should be early afternoon the way it looks right now.

Once that happens, rain chances subside for Sunday. Computer models indicate that storms may be on the increase for Monday, but they’re not exactly sure on when just yet. It might be early afternoon or late afternoon at this point. We’ll see what happens early next week as that cold front stalls in North Georgia and moves back our way by Monday morning.

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