May 24, 2018 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

May 24, 2018

It’s a beautiful sunny day, with a lack of rain! Don’t get used to that, though, as scattered storms return to the forecast tomorrow and hang around at least in the afternoons and evenings for the rest of the forecast. Welcome to the newest Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast through Memorial Day!

The cold front that went through yesterday is in the process of dying out across South Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama. It won’t return as a warm front, but instead we’ll see humidity returning. That will bring the rain and storms back to us as soon as tomorrow afternoon. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy, maybe a stray rain shower. Low 63.
  • Friday-Partly to mostly cloudy, scattered storms in the afternoon. High 84.
  • Friday night-A few evening showers/storms, otherwise partly cloudy. low 63.
  • Saturday-Partly cloudy, with scattered afternoon showers and storms. High 83.
  • Sunday-Mostly cloudy, showers and thunderstorms likely. High 82.
  • Monday-Mostly cloudy, showers and storms likely. High 82.

Our weather is more pleasant today than previous days this week, and will be more so than tomorrow, that’s for sure. Temperatures will stay about the same, but the amount of moisture will go up starting tomorrow. That is how we’ll get the increased chance of rain and storms through the weekend.

Keep in mind that there’s a chance of showers and storms each day, pretty much at any time. But the vast majority of the action will be late in the afternoon through early evening Friday and Saturday. Better chances of rain at any time are for Sunday at least, and maybe for Monday.

Monday is in question at this point because of the low pressure in the Gulf of Mexico I was talking about here yesterday. It’s still going to hit the Gulf Coast, but the question to be answered is where it hits and where it goes after that. Camps are split right now on whether it goes farther west and hangs around Mississippi for a while, or if part or all of it hits the Florida Gulf Coast and comes our way.

Either way, if you have plans for Memorial Day, keep the weather in mind. I’ll have a much clearer picture of whats going to happen this weekend, and barring any issues I’ll be able to produce a forecast sometime on Sunday. The computers we use for these forecasts are just too confused amongst each other on the weather for next week right now.

If you’re heading out for graduations tonight (which I’m doing in less than an hour), there are some clouds around, the 4 PM radar seems rather inactive. That’s good news whether the ceremony is outside or not! Keep an eye to the sky either way, and try to get indoors or to your car as soon as you can if you get rain or hear thunder.

Thanks for checking here for the forecast, have a great evening and Friday!
