May 21, 2018 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

May 21, 2018

There have been a lot of storms moving through today, but the airport readings might not reflect that too much. Most of the action has been southwest of where official readings are kept, and due west as well, moving generally north. More storms are on the way tomorrow, before we settle into a summer pattern through Friday. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for the rest of the week!

Our radio studios are located just over half a mile north (-ish) of the airport, and we’ve seen almost nothing but clouds, and we’re hearing rumbles of thunder. That said, radar estimates over an inch of rain in parts of Greene and Hawkins Counties, along with Scott County in Virginia. Nothing is severe with these storms, but rain could be heavy at times. The same is the case tomorrow. Here’s the outlook through the week:

  • Tonight-A few lingering showers and storms, then partly cloudy. Low 62.
  • Tuesday-Partly to mostly cloudy with scattered showers and storms. High 82.
  • Tuesday night-Partly cloudy, with evening showers and storms possible. Low 62.
  • Wednesday-Partly cloudy, a stray shower or thunderstorm. High 84.
  • Thursday-Partly to mostly sunny. High 85.
  • Friday-Partly to mostly sunny with an isolated shower or storm. High 86.

A weak cold front is going to get through here Wednesday, and that’s what will shut off chances of rain, more or less, toward midweek. Between now and then, expect off-and-on thunderstorms pretty much at any time, with the best chances being the rest of this afternoon and Tuesday afternoon as well.

Rain chances drop as we go through the day Wednesday, and we may not have anything pop up except in the mountains on Thursday. By the end of the week, we’ll be into the summer trend of a stray pop-up storm being a possibility in the heat of the day.

We’ll stay in the 80’s this week for highs, barring a lengthy amount of rain hitting anyone mainly tomorrow. That could keep a few folks in the upper 70’s. Overnight lows will be within a few degrees of 60 each night through Friday.
