July 9, 2019 #TriCitiesWx Forecast (with @Ottersoccer shout out!)

July 9, 2019

It’s not hot everywhere today, but we did reach 91 degrees in the Tri-Cities today. Up in Boone, however, it’s 68 degrees and foggy! We won’t see much weather like that off the mountain for this Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast, but it would be nice!

Our local semi-pro soccer team, the Tri-Cities FC Otters, are playing in Boone at Appalachian State’s soccer complex against Tobacco Road FC (as this post is written), and it looks a lot like November up there. Perfect for soccer, I suppose, with no sun and not terribly foggy, but a little odd since a lot of Tennessee saw 90+ temperatures today. More of that is to come tomorrow, but cooler times are coming…kinda. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-A stray evening shower or storm, otherwise partly cloudy. Low 68.
  • Wednesday-Sunny and hot. Maybe an afternoon shower or storm. Highs near 90.
  • Wednesday night-Partly cloudy, a couple showers or storms are possible. Low 68.
  • Thursday-Partly cloudy with scattered showers and storms. High 88.
  • Friday-Partly cloudy with scattered storms possible. High 86.
  • Saturday-Partly to mostly sunny, a couple shower or storms. High 87.

The first part of the forecast is typical of our summers here. We’ll have a lot of sunshine, with showers and storms popping up in the mountains. Some of those will move down here, and those that don’t will spawn new storms for us occasionally, then after dark the storms die out. That’s pretty much the story through tomorrow night.

Late tomorrow night, though, a cold front will bring more clouds to us. That front will bring scattered showers and storms to our area on Thursday, but it shouldn’t be an all-day rain situation. As it looks right now, the best chances of rain will be the later we go in the day.

Scattered storms are possible Friday, since we’ll be close to the cold front that recently went through. It may be the opposite of Thursday, where rain chances drop as the day goes on. Either way, any time during the day on Friday could see rain or a thunderstorm, but not all day.

The front stalls far enough south of us to keep us in more stable air on Saturday and perhaps on Sunday. That will bring us our best chances of dry days.

Meanwhile, low pressure to our south will move into the Gulf of Mexico, and may become Tropical Storm or Hurricane Barry. Many computers show Barry forming near the Louisiana/Texas coast near the border and moving into Southwest Louisiana through Sunday. That’s well out of our range, but it could bring some rain and gusty winds early next week. I’ll definitely keep an eye on that.

Thanks for checking here for the forecast. Have a great day!
