May 9, 2017 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

May 9, 2017

Fronts have a tendency to hang around here for extended periods of time, and that will bring us some unsettled weather. That’s the plan at least through Friday, but there will be significant dry periods in the weather as well. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through the weekend!

Here in the Tri-Cities, there are clouds around, but it’s dry. In part of Southwest Virginia, there are rain showers with thunderstorms coming. However, down toward Knoxville, they’re in full sunshine with temperatures in the low 80’s. We might see that kind of difference in the weather in the coming days as well. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Clouds with scattered showers and storms mainly northeast of the Tri-Cities. Low 57.
  • Wednesday-Partly cloudy, a few showers and storms possible late. High 82.
  • Wednesday night-Mostly cloudy, a few showers and storms. Lows near 60.
  • Thursday-Partly to mostly cloudy with a few rain showers. Highs near 80.
  • Friday-Cloudy with scattered showers and thunderstorms. High 74.
  • Saturday-Morning clouds and rain, becoming partly cloudy. High 68.
  • Sunday-Partly to mostly sunny. High 73.

As we look at the forecast, be aware that it won’t likely rain “all day” every day in the coming days. Some areas, like parts of Southwest Virginia today, might have the monopoly on rainfall, but tomorrow it might not be there for much of the day. So keep that in mind through Thursday.

We do have a good chance of more widespread rain and storms Friday and Saturday. Low pressure will move over us on its way to the Carolina coast, and in the process that should bring a good amount of rainfall to end the work week and to start the weekend on Saturday morning.

I do think that the weather gets better this weekend as it goes along, including Saturday. The best chances of rain Saturday will indeed be in the morning, and we’ll see a mix of clouds and sun late in the day. Sunday looks dry at this point, with high pressure near our area.

This makes life interesting for outdoor sports this week, from baseball and softball to soccer and tennis with district tournaments going on. Keep an eye to the sky if you’re at the games, because we could see scattered storms in the evening at times after a dry day.

I’ll be on the road in Kingsport with baseball tomorrow, so we’ll see about a forecast tomorrow afternoon. Sullivan South plays Elizabethton in the winner’s bracket of the Three Rivers Conference tournament at 5pm, which makes it a short day for me. So I might have a short forecast here a little early. You can listen to the game on 870 AM and 100.7 FM in the Tri-Cities, and online by searching for WPWT on the Tune in app.
