August 18, 2016 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

August 18, 2016

It’s been a cool, damp, rainy day, ending a long string of days above 90 degrees! The good news is, it appears we’re about to start a long streak of temperatures in the 80’s through Monday. Welcome to a much cooler Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through the first day of next week!

Temperatures are in the low to mid 70’s everywhere this afternoon, as clouds and rain have evened things out temperature wise between the mountains and valleys. A cold front will move through this weekend, and this one will actually do some good cooling us off for a decent amount of time. Here’s the outlook:

Tonight-Cloudy with some fog, and scattered rain showers. Low 68.

Friday-Partly cloudy with a few scattered showers and maybe a thunderstorm. High 83.

Friday night-A few scattered showers and storms, otherwise partly cloudy. Low 67.

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

Sunday-Partly cloudy with rain likely, possible storms as well. High 82.

Monday-Mostly sunny. Highs near 80.

One big batch of scattered showers moved through early this afternoon, a good soaking rain that we needed. We’ll have a couple more rounds of rain showers tonight.

This looks to be the case throughout the coming days as well, for Friday through the weekend. I don’t think any washouts will be called in terms of any of the events at the race track, but keep in mind that while you’re out there you may get rained on, and during track activities, delays might happen. There’s a good chance we’re going to see the racing go full distance tomorrow night and Saturday.

The good news is, we’re going to see cooler temperatures than normal here in the Tri-Cities. So if you’re out walking around, it won’t be nearly as hot as normal for this time of year.

The best chance of long term rain is definitely Sunday. We’ll have scattered showers and possible thunderstorms as the cold front that is over the Dakotas now will be moving through. Once it does pass, it will get all the way to the coast for a change. That means by the time we hit Monday, we might even have trouble hitting 80 degrees on a sunny day.

Thanks for checking here for the forecast! I’ll have more on Friday night and Saturday night race weather tomorrow afternoon. Have a great evening!
