August 21, 2016 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

August 21, 2016

This was a difficult weather weekend, with everyone in town for the NASCAR race. It’s been quite dry this summer, but we put a dent in our rain deficit on a weekend where we really didn’t need to! Alas, everything got in, and now we can move on to the Appalachian Fair this week! Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast through Friday.

We’ll start off rather cool, with overnight lows in the mid 50’s tomorrow night, but we’ll get back to more late-August style weather starting the middle of the week. Here’s the outlook:

Tonight-Partly to mostly cloudy, with patchy morning fog. Lows near 60.

Monday-Mostly sunny. High 83.

Monday night-Partly cloudy to mostly clear. Low 55.

Tuesday-Mostly sunny, high 85.

Wednesday-Mostly sunny, a slight chance of rain or a storm in the mountains. High 86.

Thursday-Mostly sunny, a slight chance of rain is possible, maybe a thunderstorm. High 88.

Friday-Partly to mostly sunny, with a few showers and storms possible. Highs near 90.

The dent in our rain deficit today was a record breaker! The airport received 1.36 inches of rain today, breaking a record from 1967 for the wettest August 21 in recorded history! Bad timing indeed, but that knocked our our August rain deficit and we’re almost three-quarters of an inch of rain above average! As for 2016, we’re still dry, but this weekend has taken us from a 6 inch deficit to only a little over 4 inches. That’s a big dent indeed!

However, we won’t see much rain in the coming week. Monday and Tuesday should be completely dry, and Wednesday may feature a pop-up shower or storm in the mountains. That possibility is for all of us on Thursday, and then we may have a few showers and storms ahead of a cold front on Friday.

Temperatures will be cooler than normal Monday, right at our average Tuesday, then back above for the rest of the week. It will be hot later on, so if you’re sensitive to heat and want to go to the Appalachian Fair, the best days to go are tomorrow and Tuesday!

Starting today, I’ll post almanac information for our area at the end of each post, time permitting. So, here that goes. Have a great week, everyone!

Temperatures: High/Low Sunday: 79/71. Average High/Low Monday: 85/62.

Precipitation: Sunday 1.36″ (breaks record of 1.03″ from 1967). Month to Date: 3.21″, +0.73″. Year to Date: 24.14″, -4.32″.

Monday Sunrise: 6:53 AM
