July 3, 2018 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

July 3, 2018

It’s a rain free and hot day around the Tri-Cities, and for most of us, that won’t change tomorrow or Thursday, either. There is some relief from the heat possible late this week. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast through Friday!

Officially, we did indeed tie the record set on July 3, 2012 for the warmest third of July in recorded history. Apparently the thermometer hit 95 degrees for long enough around 4:20 PM to make that a reality. Tomorrow is a possible record breaking day, but as mentioned above, cooler weather is possible to finish the week. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy. Low 68.
  • Wednesday-Sunny and hot, a small chance of rain in the mountains. High 96.
  • Wednesday night-Partly cloudy. Low 68.
  • Thursday-Partly sunny, with a small chance of an afternoon shower or thunderstorm. High 92.
  • Friday-Cloudy with scattered showers and storms. High 84.

A dome of high pressure keeps the heat on at least through Thursday, with the most intensity being tomorrow. Our record high tomorrow is the same as today, 95 degrees, set in 2012. Should we get to the forecast high of 96, of course, that’ll be a new record for Independence Day in the Tri-Cities. We’ll see how that goes.

While all of this is happening, a cold front will get organized and move our way. By Friday, it’ll be close enough to bring a lot of clouds and showers and thunderstorms. Those clouds and the rain will cool us off nicely! Once the front moves through, we could see temperatures in the low to mid 80’s for the weekend. That’s right at our average, and with less humidity will feel fantastic!

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