November 23, 2016 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

November 23, 2016

Thanksgiving is nearly upon us, and we’re having to deal with a lot of smoke around the area. By the time we all eat tomorrow, we may be thankful for cleaner air as a cold front makes the air move at least some of the smoke out of here. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast through the weekend!

First of all, the smoke outside is pretty bad. If you have respiratory issues, be sure to stay indoors as much as you can, or find a way to filter the smoke. A mask would be your best bet if you have to be out. I have asthma, and even with being in all day, my lungs are not happy!

That said, temperatures today are in the upper 40’s in the mountains, to around 60 here in the Tri-Cities, with Knoxville in the mid 60’s. We’re going to cool off a bit for the weekend, but it’s nothing too extreme. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Cloudy with a few rain showers, smoke in the air will be an issue for a while. Low 46.
  • Thursday-Mostly cloudy, a few rain showers possible in the morning. High 61.
  • Thursday night-Partly to mostly cloudy. Low 43.
  • Friday-Partly to mostly cloudy, a small chance of rain. High 62.
  • Saturday-Mostly sunny. High 54.
  • Sunday-Mostly sunny. High 57.

A cold front is pushing high pressure out of here, so winds will start to kick up a bit tonight into tomorrow. They won’t be too terribly strong, but enough to push some smoke away from us so we can breathe a little easier. Rain showers from that cold front are possible tonight and early tomorrow, but they won’t amount to a whole lot.

On Friday, another cold front will move through, but it’s going to be mostly dry. I can’t rule out a rain shower, though, mainly north of the Tri-Cities during the day. Temperatures will be a little above normal all the way through Friday.

That front will bring air about 10-15 degrees cooler this weekend. We’ll have a good supply of sunshine each day, especially Sunday. Look for temperatures to top out in the mid to upper 50’s this weekend.

Our next good chance of rain comes with a strong low pressure system with a cold front that will get here either Tuesday or Wednesday. It’s almost a week off, so timing might change. It does look like this might be our first good, solid rain in quite a while. Here’s hoping that verifies!

I’ll be off tomorrow for Thanksgiving, so my next forecast comes up Friday afternoon for the rest of the weekend. Happy Thanksgiving!
