September 1, 2017 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

September 1, 2017

Harvey is going away soon. We’ve had our fill of that particular storm from Houston to Memphis, and it’ll be moving out of Tennessee and the country this weekend. Dry weather returns in its place! Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for the entire Labor Day Weekend!

It’s cooler today than normal, but as of almost 4 PM, the sun has come out. That has led the Storm Prediction Center to believe that some strong storms might develop tonight, mainly west of I-81. I’ll keep an eye on that for sure. Here’s the outlook for the next three days:

  • Tonight-Cloudy with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Low 62.
  • Saturday-Partly to mostly cloudy. Scattered showers are possible mainly early. High 68.
  • Saturday night-Maybe an evening shower, otherwise partly cloudy and cooler. Low 55.
  • Sunday-Becoming mostly sunny. Highs near 80.
  • Monday-Mostly sunny. Highs near 84.

What’s left of Harvey has become a regular low pressure, complete with cold fronts. Those fronts will move through here by tomorrow morning, while the low goes into Canada by tomorrow night to thankfully leave us alone forever.

So the farther that thing gets from us, the clearer our weather will be. So look for scattered storms tonight that could be strong in spots. Severe storms are unlikely, but some hail and gusty winds can’t be ruled out. All of that tapers off to just rain showers overnight through early tomorrow afternoon.

From there, the rains depart and dry weather returns. We’ll cool off into the mid 50s in spots Saturday night, maybe as low as the upper 40’s in the mountains. We’ll bounce back up toward the 80s on Sunday and around 84 on Monday.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Irma is at Category 2 strength way out in the Atlantic. It won’t be anything but a fish storm until at least Wednesday, when Puerto Rico might be in its sights. We really don’t know about that or even whether it will hit the mainland just yet. One computer does show it hitting near Rhode Island and Massachusetts by the 14th. But that’s nearly two weeks away, and we just don’t know if that will pan out.

All of that said, I’ll keep watching it through the weekend. Meanwhile, once the sun returns for the latter part of the weekend, get out and enjoy it!
