May 22, 2018 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

May 22, 2018

A few storms are popping up this afternoon east of the Tri-Cities, mainly in the mountains. A few heavy downpours are possible with storms through tonight, then we’ll have a temporary reprieve from humid conditions on Thursday. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through the weekend!

Showers and an embedded thunderstorm or two are lined up from western Johnson County through Elizabethton to near Limestone this afternoon, and that’s about it so far. A cold front will bring the storms to an end when it passes through tomorrow, with more comfortable weather on the way before it all starts back up again for the weekend. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly to mostly cloudy, a few showers and storms. Low 62.
  • Wednesday-Partly cloudy, with a small chance of rain. High 83.
  • Wednesday night-Partly cloudy, less humid. Low 58.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny. High 84.
  • Friday-Partly to mostly cloudy with scattered showers and storms. High 85.
  • Saturday-Partly to mostly cloudy with scattered showers and storms. High 83.
  • Sunday-Partly cloudy, off-and-on showers and storms. High 83.

A weak cold front makes its way through here tomorrow, before washing out completely to our south on Thursday. The front brings less humid weather and a little cooler temperatures after we get some showers and storms tonight and early Wednesday. Heavy rain is possible in spots, especially tonight.

After that, we’ll have lows in the 50s once again (our average this time of year is 53…we’ve been above that for a while), with a high Thursday in the mid 80’s with sunny skies. Humidity returns late in the week, with afternoon showers and storms returning to the forecast from Friday all the way through Sunday. The late Spring transition toward Summer continues.

Nothing severe is expected with all these storms, but when they do intensify quickly, gusty winds and hail are possible, and might trigger a severe thunderstorm warning or two. While you’re out the next few days–and a lot of people will be with graduations going on–just pay attention to the weather, and head indoors if you hear thunder or see lightning.

Thanks for checking here for the forecast! Have a great Wednesday!
