August 17, 2016 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

August 17, 2016

It’s been a hot one outside, another day near 90. We should cool off a bit thanks to a cold front, but the benefits of that might not happen until this weekend. Welcome to today’s abbreviated Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast!

Some scattered showers and maybe storms are moving through parts of the area as we move into the evening, and that will continue to happen not only overnight, but for the next few days. However, each day will not be filled with rain, either. Here’s the outlook:

Tonight-Partly cloudy, with a few showers and a possible thunderstorm. Low 68, with patchy morning fog.

Thursday-Partly cloudy, with scattered afternoon showers and storms. High 85.

Thursday night-Partly cloudy, some evening showers or storms, mainly dry overnight. Low 68.

Friday-Partly sunny, with afternoon showers and storms scattered around. High 86.

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

Sunday-Partly cloudy, with scattered showers and thunderstorms. High 84.

Each day through race weekend, we should have a good chance of rain and thunderstorms, but it won’t rain all day. I think we should get all the racing in both tonight as well as Friday and Saturday nights, but be aware that rain could delay things for a bit. It does not appear, however, that any rain will hang around for too long to cause the races getting moved.

I do reserve the right to change that opinion, and the next chance of that happens tomorrow afternoon. Have a great evening!
