March 26, 2018 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

March 26, 2018

It’s turned out to be a beautiful day, a touch cooler than average with a good bit of sunshine. That’s not going to continue, as rain chances and temperatures go up for most of the rest of the week. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Friday!

We ended up today with a high near 60 degrees, unofficially as of 5 PM. That’s a little warmer than expected, but about the same number of degrees cooler than our average of 62. A cold front develops to our west in the next day or so, then stalls near I-75 toward midweek. That will potentially bring us rainy weather for quite a while to finish the week. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Increasing clouds, with a couple showers possible after midnight. Low 39.
  • Tuesday-Mostly cloudy with morning rain showers, windy and warmer. High 65.
  • Tuesday night-Mostly cloudy, maybe a sprinkle. Low 47.
  • Wednesday-Mostly cloudy with scattered showers. Highs near 70.
  • Thursday-Rain showers likely. High 72.
  • Friday-Cloudy with some mainly morning rain showers. High 64.

Low pressure near Kansas and a cold front extending south from it will combine with a cold front to the north to provide our next big weather situation the last three days of the week. The cold front will be strong enough as it develops to kick a few light rain showers our way late tonight into tomorrow, but it shouldn’t be rain that lasts a majority of the day.

In fact, Tuesday night looks mostly dry, before rain returns on Wednesday. By then, the front will have completely organized its separate segments and come together, stretching from Pennsylvania through West Tennessee and into Texas. It could take the better part of two full days from there to get it out of here.

Therefore, expect rain showers on Wednesday and Thursday, through at least Friday morning. It appears right now that the front will finally move through early Friday afternoon, bringing rain to an eventual end and maybe getting the sun out behind the clouds by the time Good Friday is over.

Temperatures will be mostly above average all the way through the period, at least until Friday when we get to the mid 60’s for a high, not far above our average temperature this time of year of 62 degrees.

Thanks for checking here for the forecast! Now that I’m back from vacation and finishing up some things at the weather office in recovering from said vacation, more weather blogs are to come each afternoon. Stay tuned!
