October 8, 2018 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

October 8, 2018

After record breaking heat on Sunday, our temperatures aren’t nearly as warm today. We have a downhill trend in temperatures as a cold front moves through on Thursday. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast through Friday!

This will be quite the strong cold front, so we’ll go from our record high of 90 degrees yesterday to more average October temperatures Thursday, and we might not hit 70 on Friday! Meanwhile, a lot of rain will happen in the process. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly to mostly cloudy. A small chance of rain, with patchy morning fog. Low 63.
  • Tuesday-Partly cloudy with a small chance of rain, mainly in the mountains. High 82.
  • Tuesday night-Mostly cloudy with a few rain showers possible. Low 64.
  • Wednesday-Mostly cloudy with scattered showers and storms, mainly after noon. High 75.
  • Thursday-Rain and Thunderstorms likely. High 73.
  • Friday-Decreasing clouds and much cooler. High 67.

The other main event weather-wise is Hurricane Michael (no relation!). It’s located just off the western tip of Cuba right now, on a collision course with the Gulf Coast. It should make landfall Wednesday, then make a quick exit thanks to the cold front.

Meanwhile, We’ll have one more day of temperatures 10 or more degrees above average, and that’s tomorrow. There’s only a small chance of rain, and I think that will stick to the higher elevations. More clouds pour in tomorrow night.

Starting Wednesday afternoon, that cold front brings more clouds to our area, with rain and thunderstorms. Rain is likely Wednesday night through Thursday night with what’s left of Michael and the cold front closest to us. Heavy rain is possible during those times as well, especially on Thursday.

We’ll start out with cloudy conditions and maybe some fog Friday, but we’ll see partly cloudy conditions by the end of the day. Look for temperatures in the upper 60’s at best on Friday, and overnight lows in the 40’s. Fall is on its way!
