April 11, 2017 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

April 11, 2017

Sometimes a pessimistic outlook on a forecast can give you problems as much as being too optimistic. I figured more clouds would be in by 5 PM today, but that’s not the case. It’s a bright sunny day, but rain is still coming. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through the weekend!

First things first, it’s a warm day out there, too. Most of us are in the mid to upper 70’s this afternoon, with temperatures near 70 in the North Carolina mountains and just above 80 near Knoxville. That’s ten degrees above normal, and we’re going to stay right around there for highs throughout the forecast.

  • Tonight-Increasing clouds, a few showers or a thunderstorm. Low 53.
  • Wednesday-Decreasing clouds after a stray morning rain shower. High 77.
  • Wednesday night-Partly cloudy. Low 43.
  • Thursday-Partly to mostly sunny. High 78.
  • Friday-Partly to mostly sunny with a slight chance of rain. High 78.
  • Saturday-Partly cloudy with a slight chance of rain. Highs near 80.
  • Sunday-Partly cloudy with a few scattered showers, especially late. Highs near 80.

There are showers and thunderstorms to our west, associated with a cold front that will move through here by morning. So look for clouds to move in this evening, with rain likely later on tonight. Don’t be shocked if you hear a rumble of thunder, especially overnight.

I think we might even see a couple rain showers lingering around here through sunrise tomorrow morning, but Wednesday will get better and more sunny as we go along. That will leave us with a nice Thursday as well with highs both days in the upper 70’s.

A couple systems will be close enough to us on Friday and through the weekend that I can’t rule out a rain shower or a thunderstorm each day. The driest days appear to be Friday and Saturday, with Friday staying dry until late afternoon at least. Our best rain chances come in late Sunday ahead of another cold front.

There are at least two baseball games to finish off the week, with Sullivan South playing at 7pm both tomorrow night against Elizabethton and Thursday night against Volunteer. I think I might have Friday off, too! Forecasts will likely be outlook-only (outlook=bulleted short forecast above) tomorrow and Thursday, and if I’m off Friday, Thursday will be the last one until Sunday. Just so you know!

As for the baseball, tune in to those games on Top Gun Radio, 870 AM, 100.7 FM, and 96.3 FM. I’ll start 10-15 minutes before first pitch to get things rolling. Both games are at South, so get to Colonial Heights to watch…that would be the best way to enjoy the game, but if that’s not possible, I’ll bring it on the radio.

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