September 4, 2017 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

September 4, 2017

Two fine weather days in a row will be followed by rain and possible storms the next couple days, then we cool down to finish off the week. As for Irma, that storm isn’t a threat for a few days, still. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Friday!

Everyone is within a dozen degrees of each other temperature-wise, from the low 70’s in the mountains to the mid 80’s near Knoxville. Tuesday will be cooler thanks to clouds and rain, and Wednesday could be downright chilly. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy, some fog in spots in the morning. Lows near 60.
  • Tuesday-Cloudy with scattered showers and storms. Highs near 80.
  • Tuesday night-Scattered showers with a possible thunderstorm. Lows near 60.
  • Wednesday-Mostly cloudy with occasional rain showers. High 68.
  • Thursday-Partly to mostly sunny. High 68.
  • Friday-Mostly sunny. High 72.

A cold front that is leading cooler air our way sits well to our northwest this afternoon, but will be here by this time tomorrow, or at least close to it. So we’ll see clouds moving in tomorrow and showers and storms developing as well. The rain continues tomorrow night.

If you remember Saturday, it was a cool day with lots of light rain and drizzle. We might see a carbon copy of that Wednesday. Tentatively, I’ve posted a warmest daytime temperature of 68, but that could happen just after midnight with temperatures in the low 60’s for much of the day. We’ll see how that goes.

After that, the cold front leaves and we don’t have much weather movement for a while. We’ll get sunshine for much of Thursday, with Friday being a sunny day as well. A sneak peek at the weekend shows highs around 80 and lows in the mid 50’s. I’ll have more on that situation tomorrow.

Speaking of situations, Hurricane Irma is still out in the Atlantic, and will likely cause a disastrous scenario for Puerto Rico starting Wednesday, then could impact the Dominican Republic and Haiti. By Saturday morning, Cuba could be a home for the storm for a little while.

That’s the extent of the official forecasts from ANYONE reputable. If you remember my Friday forecast, I was talking about possible landfall situations in the northeast around the 11th. That has changed A LOT in just a few days. Now the computers are saying Irma may make multiple landfalls, one in Cuba then a second in South Florida and a third along the Georgia/South Carolina coast. There’s a very long way to go, so just keep watching here and I’ll give you a level-headed look at this thing each day until it arrives.

Make sure to tune in to all the stations I’m on this week for many different events! We have football on WPWT (96.3 and 100.7 FM) and WABN (1230 AM and 103.3 FM) on Friday night. Also, WHCB 91.5 FM will host its Fall Fundraiser from 7am to 7pm Wednesday through Friday. There are a lot of things going on, so be sure to listen in!
