March 27, 2018 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

March 27, 2018

It’s been a mostly dry Tuesday, but a cold front brings changes to that trend for the rest of the week. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Sunday!

A lot of folks west of our area will see a lot of rain in the next five days, with 4-5 inches of rain possible from East Texas to near Memphis between now and then. We won’t have to worry about that much here, but good amounts of rain are coming to finish the week. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Mostly cloudy, maybe a few sprinkles. Lows near 50.
  • Wednesday-Cloudy with scattered rain showers. High 72.
  • Wednesday night-Scattered showers, possible thunderstorms. Low 53.
  • Thursday-Cloudy with scattered showers likely. High 73.
  • Friday-Mostly cloudy with a few showers, mainly early. High 58.
  • Saturday-Mostly sunny. High 68.
  • Sunday-Increasing clouds, some rain possible. High 64.

Today’s high temperature popped up to 67 degrees this afternoon. With the exception of Friday, we’re going to be close to or above that the entire forecast period. And with that in mind, the holiday weekend looks promising!

A cold front is organizing out to our west, and will likely get close to here by Thursday. Then it will be overtaken by another front, which will move through Friday. That’s what will bring our semi-constant chance of scattered showers the rest of the week.

Tomorrow looks mostly dry, but rain will be a part of the day as well. Ahead of that front, temperatures will keep climbing, even more than they did today. Thursday should feature more rain, but it should still be quite warm.

With the cold front moving out on Friday, we’ll start to see rain chances drop. Our best chance at a completely dry day out of the next five will be Saturday. Most of Sunday should stay dry before a new cold front brings in rain late in the day and at least through Tuesday.

Interested in baseball? Most high school teams play conference/district games on Monday and Tuesday, so it doesn’t look good for those games right now, or for much of the rest of this week. However, breaks in rain tomorrow might get a game in, depending on field conditions.

As far as the big leagues go, this year is the earliest Opening Day in a long time, if ever! On 96.3 The Possum, we’re about to start our 11th season covering the Cincinnati Reds, with first pitch Thursday at 4:10 as they play the Washington Nationals. Coverage on 96.3 FM, as well as 100.7 FM (near Kingsport) and 870 AM (until sunset) will begin at 3:40 Thursday afternoon…we hope!

The forecast for baseball in Cincinnati is not a good one either, sadly, but we’ll see how things go. A well timed break could see the game played on time!

Thanks for checking out the forecast, have a great day!
