July 24, 2016 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

July 24, 2016

What a hot week it’s been! I’ve been blessed with a good AC system (with a recently replaced filter!), so the going hasn’t been so bad as long as I’ve stayed inside. Outside, though, were hot cars, trash can lids, steering wheels, and mailbox doors, just to name a few! We may get to dial that back this week, though. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Friday!

After Monday, temperatures should cool a little bit. There are decent chances of rain coming as well, which is something we haven’t seen since I went on vacation! Here’s the outlook for the week ahead:

Tonight-Partly cloudy, a stray rain shower in the mountains. Lows near 70.

Monday-Mostly sunny and hot, with a couple pop-up showers and storms. High 94.

Monday night-Partly cloudy, with a few scattered showers and thunderstorms. Low 72.

Tuesday-Partly cloudy, scattered showers and thunderstorms from time to time. Highs near 90.

Wednesday-Partly cloudy, scattered showers and storms are possible. High 86.

Thursday-Partly cloudy, off-and-on showers and thunderstorms. High 86.

Friday-Partly cloudy, again some scattered showers and storms. High 85.

The main idea at this point is that we need some rain. That’s happened with the pop-up storms in a few places recently, but we really haven’t seen much of an organized rain situation around here. That’s typical for summer, as high pressure sometimes locks away any fronts from getting through here.

What that does, though, is sometimes the fronts will get here and then stall out before moving north as a warm front or staying stationary for a while. That’s what will happen for this week, as a weak cold front will move in late Tuesday. It will hang around for a couple days–maybe not making it to Tennessee–before moving back north late this week. That will give us a decent chance of rain for much of the week.

Keep in mind, though, that we won’t see rain all day any day this week, most likely. In fact, if the sun is out for a good amount of the day, it will still be quite hot by the time the storms arrive. The highs in the mid-80’s for Wednesday through Friday are dependent on enough clouds being around to keep temperatures from rising too much.

Rain is a definite need, with drought conditions starting to spread. Hopefully we’ll get some good soaking rains this week with some time for the rain to sink in before more arrives. That would be ideal.

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