February 27, 2017 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

February 27, 2017

I’m not a big fan of many of the weather sayings, but we’re going to see rain coming in through tomorrow, with storms on Wednesday to start March. But after that, we’ll clear out for a few days. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Friday!

First of all, storms could be strong to severe Wednesday afternoon. Look at the Severe Weather Alerts/Locations page to see what your area does in terms of sirens or no sirens, and what your location recommends for safety in severe weather. This is NOT a list of current warnings! Those will be broadcast on air to some degree.

I have a page for general advice on the Severe Weather Safety Rules page. It’s not looking like a major outbreak of tornadoes, but you don’t want to be, for example, near windows if a severe thunderstorm brings down a tree near said window.

Secondly, a note to Washington County, Virginia, specifically. If there’s a Severe Thunderstorm Warning indicating 70 mph wind gusts, your county WILL sound sirens! Keep that in mind and stay tuned to our stations (listed below) for more information. I’ll be live on the air with any tornado warnings if they’re issued!

All that said, here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Mostly cloudy, maybe a rain shower overnight. Low 44.
  • Tuesday-Mostly cloudy, a few showers and storms possible late. Highs near 70.
  • Tuesday night-Cloudy with scattered showers. Low 55.
  • Wednesday-Thunderstorms likely, possibly severe in the afternoon. High 75.
  • Thursday-Decreasing clouds. high 52.
  • Friday-Partly cloudy. High 44.

Low pressure to our south is bringing today’s clouds, and the chances of rain tonight through Tuesday night. None of this will be too intense, but a heavy downpour is not out of the question a couple times until Wednesday.

Then, a cold front will move through, likely late in the afternoon. Ahead of the front, showers and thunderstorms will move across Tennessee and Kentucky during the day. As mentioned, damaging wind gusts and hail are the most likely threats with these storms, but an isolated tornado can’t be ruled out Wednesday afternoon through early evening. Be prepared for what to do wherever you are if there are severe thunderstorms!

After the front goes through, things should be just fine weather wise. We’ll try to clear out on Thursday, but a weak cold front drifting through may prevent a completely sunny day. The same looks to be true for Friday, at least early in the day.

I’ll have more updates on the storms tomorrow, and of course on Wednesday I’ll be in all day watching them as they come our way from the west. Stay tuned to 91.5 FM WHCB; 870 AM, 96.3 FM, 100.7 FM Top Gun Radio; and 97.3 FM, 100.3 FM, 103.3 FM, 1090 AM, and 1230 AM (all Love FM) for all of the latest information. Remember, if you don’t hear from me outside of the normal forecasts, that is a good thing!
