July 14, 2016 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

July 14, 2016

Thunderstorms rolled through the area earlier this afternoon, keeping our temperatures down a bit! I’m sure anyone who is working outside will take 86 over 92 any day! More storms are coming this evening, and could bring damaging winds and hail with them. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Monday!

At noon, the temperature at the Tri-Cities Airport was 86 degrees. One hour later, as a thunderstorm raged overhead, the temperature dropped 15 degrees to 71. Storms indeed have that kind of power, and when you drop temperatures that much in the middle of the day, warming back up into the low 90’s is not likely. The reading as of around 5pm was 81 degrees, so it looks like 86 might be our high for the day.

As mentioned earlier, more storms are on the way tonight, and then we get a break for a bit on Friday before more storms come late in the day. Here’s the outlook:

Tonight-Evening showers and thunderstorms, with partly cloudy conditions overnight. Low 69.

Friday-Partly cloudy. A few showers and storms will move in late in the afternoon. High 88.

Friday night-Scattered showers and thunderstorms. Low 68.

Saturday-Partly cloudy, with some scattered showers and storms. High 86.

Sunday-Sunny and hot, only a small chance of a pop-up thunderstorm. High 92.

Monday-Partly to mostly sunny, with a slight chance of a shower or thunderstorm. High 93.

There are a couple severe thunderstorms off to our west and southwest, but most of them are ahead of the line, near Athens, Knoxville, and entering Lee County, Virginia. The line itself stretches from Middlesborough to La Follette, toward Dayton and Chattanooga. Most of that appears to be just steady rain, with maybe a couple embedded thunderstorms. All of this is the case as of 5pm.

After all that moves through, late tonight skies will clear partially, and we’ll stay dry through a lot of Friday. More storms will become likely late in the afternoon tomorrow, through tomorrow night and early Saturday. We could see a good bit of dry weather on Saturday as the weak cold front moving our way gets through here and dissipates to our south.

From there, temperatures turn hot. Cold fronts don’t bring much cold, and are therefore referred to as “cool” fronts in times like this. Either way, that might drop our temperatures a degree or two on Saturday, but we’ll just warm back up on Sunday and Monday, with temperatures into the low 90’s. There is a small chance of a pop-up thunderstorm each day, but most of us will have hot and dry weather.

Thanks for checking here for the forecast! Be aware of the weather tonight and tomorrow afternoon through tomorrow night, and get indoors if storms approach. Have a great Friday!
