July 11, 2017 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

July 10, 2017

The sun is out, with very few clouds around at mid-afternoon on Monday. Most of us should get in one more dry day before we get enough humidity around here to fire off late afternoon storms starting Wednesday. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Friday!

The radar shows nothing, which is a good thing. I still believe there’s a small chance of rain along the border between Tennessee and North Carolina tomorrow, but other than that, it should be a dry day and hot for most of us. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy to mostly clear. Low 60.
  • Tuesday-Mostly sunny, maybe a mountain thunderstorm late. High 91.
  • Tuesday night-Partly cloudy. Low 65.
  • Wednesday-Partly to mostly sunny. A slight chance of a shower or thunderstorm late. High 92.
  • Thursday-Partly cloudy. A few afternoon showers and storms. Highs near 90.
  • Friday-Partly cloudy, with scattered showers and storms possible. High 86.

If you’re reading this in any mountain location in Southwest Virginia or western North Carolina, dock about five degrees off these highs and that’s what you’ll see, maybe close to 7 if you’re in Boone. That’s always a good general rule of thumb, so long as the sun stays out. If there are storms, you’ll drop into the 70’s in a hurry!

As for the rest of us, a cold front won’t get here until late Friday, so we’ll watch rain chances slowly ramp up until then. In the Tri-Cities itself, tomorrow should be a dry day, but you’ll see some big puffy clouds off to the east and north late in the day as those mountain storms try to get going.

Each of us has a small chance of rain Wednesday, the pop-up variety afternoon showers and storms. Those appear to get more in number on Thursday with increasing humidity, and by Friday with the front approaching, we’ll have the highest chances of rain and storms.

Temperatures will be in the low 90’s by the end of each afternoon, with lows in the low to mid 60’s early in the week, some nights not dropping below 70 for long Wednesday through Friday.

As for the weekend, a few showers are possible on Saturday early in the day, with clearing happening after that. Sunday’s so far away at this point that I’ll just say that storms could be possible in the afternoon, a typical summer day.

I’ll have an official look at the weekend’s forecast, and a clearer look at Sunday, in my next forecast. Have a great Tuesday!
