August 29, 2016 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

August 29, 2016

It’s another 90+ degree day outside in the Tri-Cities, but some clouds and storms aren’t that far away, mainly in Southwest Virginia. We’ll continue to see hot temperatures for the next couple days, before we cool down just in time to start September! Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast through Saturday!

As of 5:15pm, light rain is starting to develop near Colonial Heights. Most of the rest of Northeast Tennessee is dry, as the pop-up storms are mainly scattered around in Southwest Virginia. As usual, those storms will move out and/or die off after dark, before the whole process repeats itself tomorrow. Here’s the outlook:

Tonight-A few evening showers and storms, mainly partly cloudy. Low 64.

Tuesday-Mostly sunny, with a couple pop-up showers and storms. Mainly hot and dry, high 92.

Tuesday night-Partly cloudy, with a few evening showers and storms lingering. Low 65.

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

Thursday-Partly to mostly sunny, with a slight chance of rain. High 84.

Friday-Mostly sunny. High 83.

Saturday-Mostly sunny. High 82.

A cold front is currently way northwest of us, but will be near us Wednesday evening, and through our area early Thursday. So expect hot and humid weather through much of Wednesday, with only a few showers and storms. More rain is certainly a possibility as the front gets closer to us.

That front is a good thing, though, because it’s helping to steer two tropical systems away from our area. One system is off the North Carolina coast, and it looks to skirt the coast before hooking a right and heading into the Atlantic. The other system is just northwest of Cuba. It may well do a similar loop, striking Florida Thursday before exiting the other side into the Atlantic.

Two storms that close to us means we could see cooler, dry weather. Many times when you’re within a couple hundred miles of anything tropical, the winds going into the storm help cool the weather down outside of it. So we’ll see about 10 degrees off afternoon highs between tomorrow and Saturday.

Also gone will be the end of the ever-present chance of rain. Humidity will drop like a rock thanks to all three systems, and we’ll get into September feeling like September should.

Thanks for checking here for the forecast! Have a wonderful evening!
