October 9, 2018 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

October 9, 2018

We’ve seen a lot of clouds around the area today, but rain is confined to our south and east so far today. That’s changing tomorrow and Thursday, then things get a lot cooler this weekend. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Saturday!

Hurricane Michael is also a focus of the forecast, as its run through the southeast will probably add some moisture to the rain the cold front is bringing in. That storm will likely make landfall in the Florida panhandle tomorrow, then go up the coast through the Carolinas and into the Atlantic by Friday.

All that said, we finally are getting weather that feels like fall soon. Here’s the outlook to outline the changes:

  • Tonight-Mostly cloudy with a small chance of rain. low 67.
  • Wednesday-Mostly cloudy, rain and thunderstorms move in by afternoon. Highs near 80.
  • Wednesday night-Cloudy with off-and-on rain showers. Low 65.
  • Thursday-Mostly cloudy, showers and storms likely. High 73.
  • Friday-Mostly cloudy to start, partly cloudy late. High 68.
  • Saturday-Partly to mostly sunny. High 65.

Starting at the beginning, the clouds have kept us a bit cooler than expected today, and it appears our time of temperatures in the mid-80s is mostly over. Tomorrow should be warm, with rain and storms becoming more likely in the afternoon.

Tomorrow night will have scattered showers, with a good chance of a break. The best chances of rain are on Thursday, and some rain could be heavy at times. The cold front moves through during the early afternoon, and the rain should follow it and be gone for the most part by Thursday evening.

After that, high pressure comes into our area and dries things out. Clouds decrease on Friday, and we won’t see 70 degrees by the end of the day. Saturday looks even cooler, as we get up into the mid 60’s. That will be below average temperatures for our area at that point!
