July 27, 2016 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

July 27, 2016

Storms have rumbled through parts of Southwest Virginia and Western North Carolina today, but much of Northeast Tennessee has stayed dry. That means temperatures close to or just under 80 in some spots, with low 90’s in the Volunteer State. That should be the warmest weather we’ll see the rest of the week. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through the weekend!

Rain cooled air is the story of the day for some, sunshine and heat for others in our area today. It looks like clouds will move in and we’ll have storms to deal with in the afternoons for the next few days thanks to weak cold fronts around the area. Here’s the outlook:

Tonight-Partly cloudy with a few showers and storms, mainly in the evening. Low 71.

Thursday-Partly sunny, with scattered showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. High 88.

Thursday night-Partly cloudy, a few showers and thunderstorms. Lows near 70.

Friday-Partly cloudy, with scattered showers and thunderstorms. High 85.

Saturday-Partly cloudy, scattered afternoon showers and storms. High 88.

Sunday-Partly cloudy with scattered showers and storms. High 87.

Just after 5:15 this afternoon, the official word came from the National Weather Service that the high temperature at Tri-Cities Airport was 96 degrees. That just missed our record high of 97, set in 1954. This was definitely hotter than expected, considering there weren’t any storms in Northeast Tennessee for most of the day!

A weak cold front that is turning stationary is located just to our north and northwest, and it will move north on Thursday as a warm front. In so doing, that will provide us with a bit better chance of scattered showers and storms than we’ve seen over the past couple days. In fact, we’ll have decent chances of rain for the rest of the week through the weekend as another front moves through Kentucky and stalls there.

This is not to say that showers and storms will be an all-day situation. We’ll get a good supply of sunshine for most of the rest of the days this week, with showers and storms more likely to develop in the heat of the afternoon. If you’re out when that happens, make sure to head indoors if you hear thunder. Otherwise, take all of your normal heat precautions while the sun is out.

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