October 17, 2017 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

October 17, 2017

The sun has arrived, and we’re going to see it a lot for a while. Thankfully, temperatures are comfortable during the day, with cool nights this week. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Sunday!

It’s chilly in the mountains, even late in the afternoon, as they haven’t hit 60 degrees yet! As it is, it’s a high of 65 if nothing changes here in Blountville. We’ll gradually warm up in the coming days, with seasonal temperatures tomorrow and Thursday. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy, morning frost/fog possible. Low 37.
  • Wednesday-Mostly sunny. Highs near 70.
  • Wednesday night-Partly cloudy. low 39.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny. High 72.
  • Friday-Mostly sunny. High 75.
  • Saturday-Mostly sunny. High 76.
  • Sunday-Partly to mostly sunny. High 77.

High pressure will hang out over the eastern part of the country for the rest of the week, providing us with fantastic fall weather! There’s not a whole lot to say about a 75 degree day on an October Friday!

The only issue will be chilly weather overnight. I’m a fan of getting some sort of cold going around here, so I’m happy with this plan of lows in the upper 30’s to mid 40’s through the week.

Some high clouds will start to move in ahead of a cold front late Saturday and Sunday, but rain at this point looks confined mostly to next Monday. In fact, one computer model suggests we might only see about one-third of an inch of rain until we see November. So that’s almost two full weeks with no rain, something that does happen in October from time to time.

Do keep that in mind if you plan on burning things, especially this weekend. We’ve already seen the disaster unfolding in California, and we don’t want to do that again after what we saw in Gatlinburg either. So if you have to burn something, be careful! Otherwise hold off on that for a while.

That’s it for today’s forecast, with not a lot of weather action for a while. Have a great Wednesday!
