August 11, 2016 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

August 11, 2016

There are moments that occur in life as a weather forecaster where computers tell you one thing and the actual atmosphere tells you another. That’s happened in terms of today, where scattered storms were expected, but haven’t really happened as of 5pm. Rain will happen somewhere each day through today’s Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast. Welcome!

Most of us are dry today, with just a few showers around, mainly way out west in Lee County, as well as just north of Fall Branch. There are considerable clouds in Bristol as we start to move into the evening hours. Temperatures across East Tennessee are in the low 90’s, with Southwest Virginia in the upper 80’s. The cool spots are refreshing mid-70’s readings in Western North Carolina. Here’s the outlook through Monday:

Tonight-Partly cloudy, a couple showers, maybe a thunderstorm. Lows near 70.

Friday-Partly to mostly sunny, with a few showers and storms in spots. High 92.

Friday night-Partly cloudy, maybe an evening shower or thunderstorm. Lows near 70.

Saturday-Partly to mostly sunny, with a few pop-up showers or storms in the afternoon. High 92.

Sunday-Partly sunny. A few scattered showers and storms in the afternoon. Highs near 90.

Monday-Partly cloudy, with a few afternoon scattered showers and storms. Highs near 90.

High pressure is the main feature near us weather wise right now, and it’s going to make a cold front basically stop this weekend before it gets here. Right now, that front stretches from Wisconsin to Colorado. By Saturday, it’ll be located from Illinois through Texas. By Sunday, it’ll get close to the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers, and it will stop there.

With that blocking pattern and all the humidity, we’ll hold a chance of a shower or thunderstorm through Monday. The chances are lower now, so temperatures each day should be warmer. In fact, we’ll have a good long streak of 90+ temperatures by the time we get into next week.

The front will be close enough Sunday and Monday to where we might have an increased chance of showers and storms scattered around. Other than that, each day will likely start with sunshine, then clouds will increase in the afternoon. Some of those clouds will bring those pop-up showers and storms that happen a lot this time of year.

It will be hot, and with the humidity it should feel like temperatures are in the upper 90’s if not higher. So be smart in the coming days, and do the things you know to do to keep cool. Water is your friend.

Have a great evening…I’ll have another look at the weekend forecast tomorrow afternoon!
