November 29, 2016 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

November 29, 2016

We need the rain, and a little bit fell last night! As you’ve likely seen, a lot of East Tennessee is in dire need of a good soaking, and it does appear we’re going to get that in the next 24 hours. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Sunday!

Just before sunset, temperatures were quite warm across the area, from near 60 in Boone to near 70 in the Tri-Cities, into the low 70’s southwest of here. A second cold front is on its way, and the showers and storms it is bringing to Mississippi, Arkansas, and Louisiana tonight will be in our area late tonight and tomorrow morning. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Cloudy, rain possible after midnight. Windy, low 54.
  • Wednesday-Partly to mostly cloudy and windy, with scattered showers and storms. High 68.
  • Wednesday night-Scattered rain showers. Lows near 40.
  • Thursday-Partly to mostly cloudy. Highs near 50.
  • Friday-Partly cloudy. High 48.
  • Saturday-Mostly sunny, high 51.
  • Sunday-Partly cloudy, maybe some rain showers in the afternoon. High 53.

The first cold front just passed through this afternoon, clearing out the clouds and rain in the process. That’s what got us such warm weather today. Cold front number two will push rain showers and storms in here late tonight. Those storms are severe right now to our southwest, but shouldn’t be anything but regular thunderstorms by the time they get here.

Winds will be gusty starting tonight and going through tomorrow, so we’ll need the rain to help get rid of any wildfires around here. While Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge have gotten a lot of the attention (and rightfully so, as those fires are dangerous!), there are some fires around our neck of the woods, so rain will help quench those we hope.

Last night didn’t provide much rainfall, but tonight and tomorrow will. That inch of rain I’ve been talking about will likely happen tomorrow, with some areas getting a lot more than that. It’ll put a dent in the drought, but not enough of one just yet.

Rain finishes off Wednesday night, perhaps as late as Thursday morning. After that, we’ll stay dry for a couple days before our next cold front moves in late Sunday to bring more rain to our area.

Thanks for checking here for the forecast! Keep in your prayers everyone in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge and that surrounding area, and all of the firefighters from all over East Tennessee who are helping! They need rain to help them out, and hopefully it gets there before more homes are lost.
