September 22, 2017 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

September 22, 2017

The sun is out for most of us, but a couple stray rain showers are around this afternoon. Those will continue into the early evening, then dry weather will be ours to enjoy this weekend. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Tuesday!

As of early this afternoon, most of us are in the low 80’s in the Tri-Cities, with temperatures in the upper 70’s the farther north you are, with some the farther up you go in the mid 70’s. We all should see the 80 degree mark today, with upper 80’s likely in much of northeast Tennessee by the time it’s all said and done. Here’s the 4-day outlook:

  • Tonight-Maybe an evening rain shower, otherwise partly cloudy with patchy morning fog. Low 58.
  • Saturday-Mostly sunny. High 87.
  • Saturday night-Partly cloudy. Low 58.
  • Sunday-Mostly sunny. High 86.
  • Monday-Mostly sunny. High 85.
  • Tuesday-Mostly sunny, maybe an afternoon shower or storm in the mountains. High 85.

There are a few showers around the area, the typical summer variety pop up situations, near Newland, NC, Gate City, Virginia, and west of Kingsport. Some of us will get rain from those today through the early evening, but most of us should stay dry with nothing too organized to cover a lot of the area.

From there, high pressure in the eastern third of the country between a cold front and two tropical systems will keep us dry for a while. We might see afternoon pop-up storms start as a possibility Monday afternoon in the mountains, but the better chance of that will be on Tuesday afternoon.

A cold front will move through here late next week, putting our warm and dry weather trend to somewhat of an end. A weather pattern change is coming near the end of the month that should put all of us back into a fall mood once again, even though it doesn’t feel like it as the new season dawns.

Hurricanes are often forming in the fall, and Maria is still out there just north of the Dominican Republic, starting to turn toward the north. As of now, it still doesn’t look like Maria will make landfall, which is a good thing for sure. It will stay far enough offshore to cause gusty winds along the East Coast and maybe some rain there, but that’s about it. If the track doesn’t change, Maria will become a fish storm until it dissipates in the Atlantic.

Coming up tonight on Top Gun Radio, 100.7 FM and 96.3 FM, Sullivan Central will play Unicoi County as football returns to the air from Blountville. We’ll start coverage at 7:15 tonight, and Rick Brooks and I will bring the action to you at the 7:30 Sullivan County Game of the Week kickoff.

My next forecast will be for next week, and I’ll bring that on Sunday afternoon or evening. Have a great weekend!
