October 24, 2017 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

October 24, 2017

Yesterday was a record breaker! While there was a lot going on in the area and near us, records were broken for rainfall on Monday. The cold front that caused that is gone, so all should be mostly dry for a while…with possible exceptions. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast through the weekend!

We received 1.58″ of rainfall yesterday, smashing the 36-year-old record of 0.95″ set in 1981. Knoxville broke a similar record as well, and some measurements to our east near Boone showed close to 5 inches of rain in spots. There were even a couple tornado warnings, as close as the eastern part of Ashe County yesterday.

All of that is over, and for the most part we should stay dry through Friday. The exceptions come tonight through tomorrow night. Here’s the outlook to shake all that information out:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy and windy with a slight chance of rain. Low 35.
  • Wednesday-Morning frost, then partly cloudy. A small chance of rain late. Highs near 50.
  • Wednesday night-Cloudy with a small chance of rain, possible flurries in spots. Low 35.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny. Highs near 60.
  • Friday-Partly to mostly sunny. Highs near 70.
  • Saturday-Cloudy with rain and thunderstorms. High 62.
  • Sunday-Partly cloudy and cooler, a few rain showers. Highs near 50.

A small disturbance is bringing clouds our way tonight through tomorrow night, and a few of those clouds might squeeze out some light rain in that time. It’ll be cool enough to where light snow showers or flurries are possible, mainly tomorrow night. Even then, there won’t be enough for most of us to see it when we wake up Thursday.

After that, we’ll clear out for sure through Friday. A new cold front approaches our part of the world on Saturday, and that increases our shower and thunderstorm chance again. It looks like Saturday could be a lot like yesterday.

From there, Sunday looks like what we’ll probably see tomorrow. There’s a better chance of rain, but cooler temperatures will finish off the weekend as we struggle to get to 50 degrees.

As you can see, we’re in the throes of fall, with our weather getting chilly, warming up, then getting cooler again. We’re at the point in the year where the cool snaps will get colder and colder as we approach winter. The cold season begins in less than two months.

With that happy thought, I depart for the afternoon. Stay warm tomorrow, and have a great day!
