June 13, 2017 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

June 13, 2017

As much as people like to talk about the weather changing a lot, sometimes things just stay the same. Our weather in summer is one of those things where year after year, the forecast sounds like a broken record. With today’s forecast comes a lot of clouds and showers and storms, but it won’t rain all the time. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast through the weekend!

Clouds and scattered storms have cooled off parts of the area, but some of us are up into the 80’s this afternoon. Down in Knoxville, storms are just now starting, so they’re approaching 90 down that way. Our usual off-and-on shower and thunderstorm chances continue through the next five days. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-A few evening showers/storms, then partly cloudy. Low 67.
  • Wednesday-Partly to mostly cloudy with scattered afternoon showers/storms. High 87.
  • Wednesday night-Cloudy with evening showers/storms. Low 67.
  • Thursday-Partly to mostly cloudy, with scattered afternoon showers and storms. High 88.
  • Friday-Partly to mostly cloudy, with scattered afternoon showers and storms. High 87.
  • Saturday-Partly to mostly cloudy, with scattered afternoon showers and storms. High 88.
  • Sunday-Partly to mostly cloudy, with scattered afternoon showers and storms. High 87.

Here’s a hint about the last four lines. Other than the 7 or 8 at the end of the day’s high temperature, it’s all copied and pasted. We will see a cold front approach by Sunday, and that will bring better chances of rain and storms more than the normal afternoon pop-up variety.

Other than that, just keep an eye out for storms while you’re outside. Big white puffy cumulus clouds will start developing late morning–if not earlier–and they’ll continue to grow into cumulonimbus clouds, although short lived ones. Then, we’ll get rain, wind, thunder and lightning for a while until the storm dies out. While two miles away, you may hear the thunder and see lightning, but won’t get rain. It’s typical summer weather, that typically ends when the sun goes down and stops providing fuel for the storms to grow.

Again, by Sunday afternoon or evening and into Monday we have better chances of widespread rain. Whether that cold front gets all the way through here remains to be seen, another thing I’ll say again and again through August, most likely.

Stay safe if you’re around storms in the coming days. Get indoors if you hear thunder, and wait 30 minutes after the last time you hear it to venture back outside to enjoy the rest of the day.
