May 17, 2017 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

May 17, 2017

Clouds have rolled in this afternoon, but a look at radar shows no rain as we start Wednesday evening. We’ll continue to see clouds off and on in the coming days, with rain chances increasing toward the weekend. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Sunday!

The Tri-Cities airport officially hit 89 degrees today, just a tick under what was forecast. Most folks toward Knoxville were in that range late this afternoon as well, with upper 70’s the order of the day for most in the mountains. We have off-and-on chances of rain starting tomorrow going through Monday. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly to mostly cloudy. Low 58.
  • Thursday-Partly cloudy with a slight chance of a shower or thunderstorm. High 88.
  • Thursday night-Partly cloudy, a slight chance of showers and storms. Low 63.
  • Friday-Partly to mostly cloudy with some scattered storms possible. High 85.
  • Saturday-Partly cloudy, with scattered showers and storms. High 85.
  • Sunday-Cloudy with rain likely and occasional thunderstorms. Highs near 80.

Some clouds have indeed come in this afternoon, but those aren’t producing anything just yet. Don’t be surprised if you get some sprinkles through tonight, though.

After that, we have rain chances through Sunday. However, it won’t “rain all day” any day through the weekend, either. In fact, it should be dry for many of us tomorrow. The best chances of rain will be for folks in the North Carolina mountains, mainly late in the afternoon and in the early evening.

From there, all of us have better chances of showers and storms Friday as a cold front that is causing all sorts of problems in the Plains moves our way. Look for off-and-on showers and storms on Friday and Saturday, with dry weather for a good portion of each day as well.

The front starts moving through Tennessee and Kentucky on Sunday, so expect an increase in clouds and more showers and storms. Early Monday, the cold front moves through, and the rain will end toward the middle of the first day of next week.

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