October 6, 2017 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

October 6, 2017

Our long dry spell is nearing its conclusion, thanks to what is now Tropical Storm Nate. It arrives on Sunday, bringing rain starting late Saturday. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Tuesday!

Straight to the outlook we go on this fine Friday:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy. Low 54.
  • Saturday-Increasing clouds, a small chance of rain late. High 82.
  • Saturday night-Rain and storms likely with gusty winds. Low 64.
  • Sunday-Rain and storms likely with gusty winds. High 78.
  • Monday-Mostly cloudy with scattered showers and storms. Highs near 80.
  • Tuesday-Partly cloudy, with a few showers and storms. High 83.

There is a cold front to our northwest, but that won’t be what brings us the rain for the last half of the weekend. Currently, Tropical Storm Nate is just east of the Mexico coast, about to pass between that and Cuba. From there, it’s through the Gulf of Mexico tomorrow before making landfall along the Gulf Coast tomorrow night. It may well be a hurricane by then.

The first bits of rain we’ll see from that will be late tomorrow afternoon in spots to the south. Most of us, though, won’t see any rain until tomorrow night. From there, expect heavy rain and gusty winds at times with any of the storms through Sunday.

Nate gets through here by Monday, but a cold front does reach us starting Tuesday, so our rain chances diminish a little bit by then.

Keep in mind this weekend that storms could be pretty strong in spots as what’s left of Nate moves through here. Thankfully, it will get through here rather quickly, at least as far as tropical systems go.

I’ll make my way into the weather office (at least one of them) on Sunday and get a weekly forecast ready to roll then. Have a great weekend!
