April 27, 2017 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

April 27, 2017

Clouds and rain have moved through, but not all of us saw rain hit the ground today. We’ll see things get very warm tomorrow and into the weekend with summer-like conditions! Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Monday!

This will be a short one, but you’ve got homework to do after the outlook. Here goes:

  • Tonight-Rain ending, partly cloudy late with patchy morning fog. Low 54.
  • Friday-Partly cloudy to mostly sunny and warm. High 86.
  • Friday night-Partly cloudy. Low 59.
  • Saturday-Mostly sunny with a slight chance of an afternoon thunderstorm. High 90.
  • Sunday-Increasing clouds, a few showers and storms possible late. High 85.
  • Monday-Cloudy with scattered showers and thunderstorms. High 75.

Basically, after tonight we’re done with organized rainfall until Sunday night and Monday. There will be a few pop-up storms like summer during the heat of the day Saturday. A cold front brings our rain chances late Sunday and much of Monday.

Homework: This is the 6th anniversary of the terrible tornado outbreak on April 27, 2011. It’s a day and night I’ll never forget. Read about that here.

Then, especially when there’s nice weather, read the Severe Weather Safety Rules page. Use that page to get yourself, family and co-workers ready for when tornadoes strike again, or for any type of severe weather. Take a look at the page for alerts to learn how you can get warning information. Make a plan to keep yourself and others safe.

Finally, the last piece of the puzzle is my pink wristband story. There’s a book review in there, and my story of things that happened after I read the book. Something else I’ll never forget about that day.

Keep in mind when reading these stories that they’re multi-part stories. There should be a link at the bottom to go to the next one. If not, as far as the “As Big As the Sky” series, go to Weather Info and you’ll find it in a tab there.

I hope that gives you a glimpse of why I always wear 4/27/11 things practically daily. It reminds me of why I do the forecast every day, during calm weather or storms. My goal is to help people, and it’s something I remember every day when I sit down at this desk to make a forecast.

Even if it’s just whether it’s going to rain or not, a forecast helps people plan their day, and that’s what I want to do. Help people. My friend Shelby Hays from KOCO TV in Oklahoma says it well in her blog. I feel the same way.

So there’s your reading assignment! There’s no test or anything, but you’ll do something important in the process of reading these things. You’ll know what to do wherever you are in the event of severe weather of any kind. Hopefully along the way you’ll learn a little about me, too, and do your own bit to help others. We all definitely need to do more of that!
