December 1, 2016 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

December 1, 2016

Yesterday was a record breaker! Just in time, we had the most rain ever for a November 30th since they’ve been taking weather records at the Tri-Cities Airport. That was just in time to get us from way behind to near normal for rainfall for the month. We are drying out, and it appears we won’t see any rain until Sunday. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Monday!

Clouds have hung around a lot today, and because of that we’re all pretty close to each other from a temperature standpoint. Higher elevations are in the low 40’s late today, with the Tri-Cities right at 50, and Knoxville just beyond that. We’ll be at or just below that 50 degree mark for highs in the coming days. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy. Low 28.
  • Friday-Partly cloudy. Highs near 50.
  • Friday night-Partly cloudy. Low 29.
  • Saturday-Mostly sunny. High 49.
  • Sunday-Partly cloudy, with scattered rain showers, could be snow in the mountains. High 47.
  • Monday-Mostly cloudy, rain showers likely. High 54.

The record we broke yesterday, for detail’s sake, was 1.8 inches of rain from 2010. The new November 30 record that happened yesterday is a whopping 2.24 inches. Thanks to the storms in the morning (which admittedly were stronger than I anticipated), and constant showers during the rest of the day, we almost completely wiped out the November rain deficit!

High pressure will keep rainfall rates low until Sunday. By then, low pressure in Mexico will make its way to south Texas, with a front into the Gulf Coast. That will bring rain showers in here, well ahead of that system, as early as Sunday afternoon. And yes, I did use the word “snow.” Temperatures will be low enough on Sunday where frozen precipitation could fall, mainly in the mountains at times Sunday and Sunday night.

That system, plus one in the northern Plains, will come together to some degree to bring better chances of rain showers on Monday. In fact, if the models are to be believed we might see off-and-on rain showers every other day next week. That would help with the overall rain deficit, which is just over seven inches.

Make sure to check out my Twitter feed, which you can see on the right side of the page. If for some reason I’m not at the stations when weird weather happens, I’ll always tweet what’s going on with radar images and information from my phone until I get to a computer. Either way, you’ll get the latest on severe weather at that location. Have a great Friday!
