August 9, 2018 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

August 9, 2018

While thunderstorms rumble to our southwest, only a few rain showers exist in the Tri-Cities this afternoon. While storms might not bother most of us tonight, we’ll have a good chance of scattered showers and storms tomorrow. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Monday!

As of 4 PM, temperatures were near the mid 80’s in most of the Tri-Cities, with that mark already achieved in the Knoxville area. Meanwhile, some folks in the mountains haven’t seen 80 degrees yet! It’s easy to see why folks like to head up there in the summer for sure. Cooler weather comes in tomorrow, but that comes with rain and storms as well. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy, a small chance of rain or a thunderstorm in the evening. Low 68.
  • Friday-Mostly cloudy with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs near 80.
  • Friday night-Cloudy with a few evening showers and thunderstorms. Low 65.
  • Saturday-Partly cloudy with scattered showers and storms. High 84.
  • Sunday-Partly to mostly cloudy with scattered showers and storms. High 83.
  • Monday-Partly to mostly sunny, a few stray pop-up showers late. High 84.

Thursday afternoon’s Tennessee weather activities include some thunderstorms west of Knoxville as we approach 5 PM. Storms haven’t crossed I-75 northwest of Knoxville yet, but southwest of town they have, with storms from Loudon to Etowah to Ducktown in the southeast part of the Volunteer State.

All of that activity is generally moving to the east. That’s good news if you’re not interested in storms tonight because the majority of it will miss our area just to our south. That said, there are better chances of rain tonight from Bean Station to Bulls Gap, through Greeneville and southern Unicoi County this evening. Other than a few stray storms north and east of that, we should be mostly dry.

Tomorrow is a different story as new storms move in that will bring rain to many of us during the day tomorrow. It won’t rain all day, as usual it’ll be hit-and-miss stuff typical of summer, but at the same time more numerous than we normally see. Most of those storms should be gone by the evening.

The weekend looks mainly dry on Saturday, with a little bit better chance of showers and storms for Sunday afternoon than for Saturday. By Monday, we’ll be back to pop-up heat of the day storms that are normal for August. It shouldn’t be too warm just yet, though.

Remember, you can hear the forecast each day in the Tri-Cities on WHCB 91.5 FM, 96.3 The Possum, or 97.3 Love FM. Also, in parts of the area 100.7 FM and 870 AM will work for The Possum, or 1090 and 1230 AM and 100.3 and 103.3 FM for Love FM. It just depends on where you are. Also, you can listen to each station online!
