December 7, 2016 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

December 7, 2016

We just missed another record rainfall day yesterday, but regardless of that, the rain we are getting is just what we needed! There’s not too much falling at any time, so we’re denting the rain deficit and not causing flooding in the process! More rain is on the way in today’s Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast.

Looking at temperatures first, we’re in the low to mid-50’s in the Tri-Cities as of late this afternoon, just before sunset. The mountains are still in the 40’s, while folks in Knoxville were the warm spot on the map for our area in the mid 50’s in spots. There’s a small chance of some snow tonight, but better chances of rain arrive late this weekend. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Cloudy, a small chance of sprinkles or flurries. Low 35.
  • Thursday-Cloudy and chilly, with snow flurries at times. Highs around 41.
  • Thursday night-Partly cloudy and cold, with some flurries possible. Low 18.
  • Friday-Partly cloudy and cold. High 32.
  • Saturday-Partly to mostly sunny. High 38.
  • Sunday-Increasing clouds, scattered showers late in the day and overnight. High 47.

Yes, I did mention flurries, which is essentially the cold version of sprinkles. We’ve been warmer than freezing at some point every day for months, so it would take a bit of snow to accumulate around here right now. So that said, I’m not expecting any accumulation tonight or tomorrow morning. That having been said, if you’re up late enough or early enough, you might spot some snowflakes in the air.

That should end sometime tomorrow, as a rush of cold air comes in. Our high of 41 degrees may well happen early in the day, and we’ll start a slow afternoon decline in warmth. That will bring about the cold air tomorrow night thanks to high pressure moving in.

That high pressure should be right over us by Saturday, so don’t look for much warmth until maybe Sunday as the cold front approaches and brings in some relatively warmer air. But with that will come scattered showers, which could start as early as Sunday afternoon, but most likely won’t begin until after dark. It looks like rain continues for Sunday as well.

If you’ve been listening to WHCB recently, you know we’re moving soon! Our studios on Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard will have new tenants on January 1, 2017, so we have to move our studios! This is important here because weather blogs may be rather erratic in their timing/length/existence in the coming days because of the move. I’ll try my hardest to get something here each day, but occasionally cleaning and moving things might prevent that. So keep that in mind if for some reason I don’t have a blog (or have to do a short one) up by 7pm one weekday evening…or several between now and the end of the year. It’s going to be quite busy around here!

Thanks for looking here for the forecast, have a great Thursday!
