September 6, 2016 #TriCitiesWx and #BattleAtBristol Forecast

September 6, 2016

We’ve seen a few more clouds than anticipated today, but nothing has fallen forth from said clouds. That’s going to be the situation in the coming days until a cold front gives us a decent chance of rain halfway through the weekend. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast through Sunday!

Temperatures are quite warm for most of us, except in Western North Carolina, where 80 degrees is the high mark. Everyone in the Tri-Cities is in the upper 80’s, with 90’s to our southwest. More summer heat is on the way before we cool off on Sunday. Here’s the outlook:

Tonight-Partly cloudy, with some patchy morning fog. Lows near 60. Mountains dropping into the mid 50’s.

Wednesday-Mostly sunny. Highs near 90.

Wednesday night-Partly cloudy. low 62.

Thursday-Mostly sunny. Highs near 90.

Friday-Partly to mostly sunny. Highs near 90.

Saturday-Partly to mostly sunny, with a small chance of rain/storms late in the day. High 88.

Sunday-A chance of morning showers or storms, becoming partly cloudy. High 84.

High pressure will keep our weather dry through Friday. We’ll heat up into the 90 degree range by then.

Over the past few days, the weather for the weekend has come a little more into focus. There’s still a few hours’ difference in the computer models when it comes to Saturday. Some put some rain in here during the game, others leave it until overnight/early Sunday morning.

To account for that, this forecast includes a small chance of rain late Saturday. Thankfully, rain doesn’t throw a monkey wrench into the works of a football game like it does NASCAR. That said, there is a chance for thunderstorms. And if that happens, the lightning will cause delays, per NCAA rules (smart rules to be sure!).

As it looks right now, the best chances of rain are likely late in the game, but mainly after it. Definitely good news there if things hold up. Keep in mind if you’re going to the game that rain gear might be needed, and there’s a possibility that delays might happen, causing a temporary move to the concourse for safety.

I’ll have another update tomorrow afternoon, hopefully shortly after 5pm. If you have questions, feel free to use the Contact link in the top right corner of the page, or reply to this message. Either way, I’ll get a notification and will get right back to you!
