August 20, 2018 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

August 20, 2018

After some rain this morning, the rest of the day has been mostly dry across the Tri-Cities. That changes tomorrow, but the process brings cooler, less humid weather the last three days of the week! Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Friday!

If you’re heading out to the Appalachian Fair this week, any day looks good at this point. The exception may be tomorrow, as a cold front looks to bring some scattered showers and storms our way. After that, you’re not going to believe it’s late August! Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy, some scattered showers and storms possible. Lows near 70.
  • Tuesday-Partly to mostly cloudy, with scattered showers and thunderstorms. High 84.
  • Tuesday night-A few scattered showers and storms, otherwise mostly cloudy. Low 68.
  • Wednesday-Mostly sunny with a small chance of rain. High 78.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny. High 78.
  • Friday-Mostly sunny. High 83.

There are still a couple stray showers around, but that’s pretty much all we’ll see for a while tonight. Later on we might get some rain and storms as a cold front that’s in Illinois and Missouri through Texas heads our way. It looks like that front moves through here tomorrow, which will trigger off-and-on showers and thunderstorms during the day.

After the cold front moves through, we might have a couple stray showers or storms tomorrow night through Wednesday, but our weather improves a lot after that! Cold fronts don’t normally have much effect on us this time of year, but this one will. Look for cooler weather with temperatures not touching 80 Wednesday and Thursday as a drop in humidity will be easy to notice as well.

An early look at the weekend indicates our usual afternoon pop-up showers and storms returns by then. I’ll have more on that as I can through the rest of the week.

Make sure you go out to see WHCB, Love FM and 96.3 The Possum at the Appalachian Fair this week! We’re all in commercial building number 1, with WHCB and Love FM together and The Possum on the other side of the building. I’ll be in The Possum booth tomorrow from 4:30 to 7, and in the WHCB booth (it’s the one with the castle!) on Wednesday at similar times. Stop by and say hello!
