November 20, 2016 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

November 20, 2016

Dry conditions continue across the area, and even with a pretty big temperature change, we didn’t receive much rain in the past week or so. As for the coming week, late Wednesday appears to be our best bet. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Friday!

Last week was vacation week for me, thankfully not for surgery like last year! I went out and enjoyed being outside as much as I could, except when we had smoke around. Thankfully, winds with the cold front have moved a lot of that out, but very little rain came with it. It looks like a mostly dry week, with a couple chances of rain toward mid-week. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy/mostly clear. Lows near 20.
  • Monday-Mostly sunny. High 46.
  • Monday night-Partly cloudy to mostly clear. Low 22.
  • Tuesday-Mostly sunny. High 55.
  • Wednesday-Mostly sunny early, some clouds late with a small chance of rain. High 57.
  • Thursday-Cloudy with a small chance of rain early, partly cloudy late. High 57.
  • Friday-Partly cloudy to mostly sunny. Highs near 60.

First and foremost, regardless of whether there are burn bans out or not–that should be most of us, if not all by now–don’t burn anything this week. Grilling out might be okay, but anything else is not a good thing. No need to accidentally set any more wildfires than we already have going around here. At the very least, the smoke makes it hard to breathe!

That said, we’ll have dry weather thanks to high pressure through most of Wednesday. Then, we’ll see an increase in clouds, and maybe a rain shower for late in the afternoon. Our best chance of rain is Wednesday night, though, but much of the rain to our west may dry up before it gets here.

Rain chances may continue through early Thursday, then we’ll clear out again for Friday to start what for most folks is a four-day weekend. The second half of said weekend could bring some rain showers with a new cold front that might actually help drought conditions.

I’ll have more on both fronts moving through as we get closer to each, so keep an eye here for all the latest. Have a great week!
