October 24, 2016 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

October 24, 2016

Fall weather certainly arrived this weekend, but we have warmed up to just a bit above average since then. It’s going to stay dry for most of today’s Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast, so here goes!

Outside right now, things are a handful degrees above where we tend to be this time of year. At 4pm, Tri-Cities Airport nudged into the mid-70’s on the afternoon, while Knoxville was approaching 80. Up in the mountains, they were in the mid 60’s…a definite improvement over the upper 40’s on Saturday. I was there–the wind and cold were not fun for watching football.

Temperatures should say just above average in the coming days, with rain coming just after midweek. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Mostly clear. Low 37.
  • Tuesday-Mostly sunny. Highs near 70.
  • Tuesday night-Partly cloudy. Low 35.
  • Wednesday-Partly to mostly sunny. High 73.
  • Thursday-Increasing clouds, with some scattered showers possible. High 68.
  • Friday-Decreasing clouds, high 68.

A high pressure ridge stays over our area through Thursday, providing us with a good supply of sunshine through Wednesday and dry conditions. That doesn’t help our drought status for sure.

By Thursday, a cold front will make its way from the Ohio River into our area. So expect a partly cloudy start, with more clouds as the day wears on. We’ll have light rain showers, but it appears that this front will get more and more dry as it gets closer to us. But we’ll definitely see some rain from that front on Thursday, mostly overnight.

The front is through here and into Georgia, South Carolina, and Alabama by Friday morning. High pressure will move in behind it and slowly clear the sky and bring sunshine back to our area.

Another cold front looks to move through late this weekend, but it looks mostly dry for us as well. So it appears that we may not see more than half an inch of rain for the rest of the month. As it stands, we are about 6.5 inches short of average rainfall for the year, so drought conditions are getting worse, and will for most of the next week.

More almanac-style info follows. Thanks for checking here for the forecast. Have a wonderful Tuesday!
