September 5, 2016 #TriCitiesWx and first #BattleAtBristol Forecast

September 5, 2016

Early September can be well known for good doses of sunshine, and we’re having that so far this month. All indications right now show that we might see that trend continue well into the week, before our next chances of rain happen…yes, this weekend. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through the big game Saturday!

There’s not much to worry about through Thursday except a little morning fog and avoiding sunburns. Here’s the outlook:

Tonight-Mostly clear and cool, some patchy fog in the morning. Low 54.

Tuesday-Mostly sunny. High 86.

Tuesday night-Mostly clear. Low 59.

Wednesday-Mostly sunny. High 89.

Thursday-Mostly sunny. Highs near 90.

Friday-Partly to mostly sunny. A couple pop-up showers and storms are possible. High 89.

Saturday-Partly cloudy. A few showers and thunderstorms possible, mainly late. High 88.

High pressure will be around us for most of the rest of the week, providing us with sunshine and temperatures pushing closer to 90 the closer to Thursday we get.

A cold front will stay northwest of us until Saturday, when it will push through. It will be strong enough to get here and past us, but it might not have enough moisture to do a whole lot. So starting Friday, we might see a shower or thunderstorm late in the day.

As for the Battle at Bristol, the main issue is that it will be quite warm. Temperatures will be in the upper 80’s, perhaps 90 by the end of the afternoon, but will cool off a bit by game time. And with that cold front moving through, a shower or thunderstorm isn’t out of the question. But like I said yesterday, a little rain has never really hurt a football game, so we should be okay. The worst that could happen is an hour or so lightning delay.

So get preparations going early if you’re going to the game, mainly to stay cool. If rain or storms become an issue, the concourse is always a good place to be until things dry out.

I’ll keep an eye on that throughout the week, so keep checking here each afternoon. Have a great evening!
