June 26, 2020 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

June 26, 2020

It’s a beautiful, dry, Friday across the entire area as we’re about to head off into the weekend! As we go through said weekend, though, rain chances will increase, with better chances of showers and thunderstorms starting Sunday afternoon. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for the weekend and beyond!

As opposed to some, I’m not going to preach about wearing a mask or staying six feet apart during the pandemic. You know what to do. But do you know what to do if there’s a thunderstorm nearby? It’s simple–when you hear thunder, go inside! It does NOT matter if it’s not raining! Whether it’s a car or (preferably) a fully enclosed building, getting indoors can help you be as safe as possible when our normal afternoon pop-up storms visit your location. Which will happen sooner or later.

Those chances are smaller to start the week, but get larger late this weekend and early next week. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy, low 63.
  • Saturday-Mostly sunny, some pop-up storms possible in the afternoon. High 84.
  • Saturday night-A small chance of showers and storms, otherwise partly cloudy. Low 64.
  • Sunday-Partly cloudy with off-and-on showers and storms. High 82.
  • Monday-Cloudy with showers and thunderstorms likely. Highs near 80.
  • Tuesday-Partly cloudy with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms. High 82.

It’s been a calm day across the area weather wise, with temperatures in the mid 80’s late this afternoon in the Tri-Cities, with upper 70’s in the North Carolina mountains. It’s in the upper 80’s near Knoxville right now. It appears things will stay dry from here to there throughout the evening.

Tomorrow should start out sunny and dry, with rain and a couple thunderstorms starting to pop up in the afternoon. Temperatures will be comparable tomorrow with what we’re getting today.

A cold front approaches by Sunday, and the closer it gets to us, the better chances and coverage of rain we will see. Look for scattered showers and storms to be around bot Sunday and Monday, also into Tuesday. Thanks to rain being around more often, we’ll see highs get up to the low 80’s at most for Sunday through Tuesday.

When the front moves through, it’s going to wash out south of us. That means the air behind the front will become just like what’s in front of it. If it’s all the same, there’s no line between them! This happens a lot during summer around here, and toward July and August we’ll have a few fronts that don’t get here before they either die out completely or move back north as a warm front.

Either way things go, it won’t get cold, we know that much! So get out there and enjoy the weekend…to the level of ability that you can with the virus situation. Have fun, and stay safe!
