September 9, 2020 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

I think I’ve used the term “illegal rain showers” from time to time. That’s when a forecaster doesn’t think rain is going to happen but it does! At around 4:30 this afternoon, that happened. More in the way of rain that should be happening is likely in today’s Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast!

That was a term coined by Alabama weather legend, J.B. Elliott years back on an online show called Weather Brains. I don’t know, but he may have put those in the forecasts he broadcast on NOAA Weather Radio as part of the NWS/Weather Bureau office in central Alabama years ago. So whenever it rains and I don’t think it should’ve, I deem them illegal to honor J.B. It’s a fun tradition.

With that said, today was supposed to be the last day weather wasn’t supposed to have rain in it for a while. So that being said, here’s a look at the next few days, outlook first:

  • Tonight-Maybe a stray evening rain shower, otherwise partly cloudy. Low 63.
  • Thursday-Partly to mostly sunny. A small chance of an afternoon shower or thunderstorm. High 85.
  • Thursday night-Partly cloudy. A small chance of an evening shower or thunderstorm. Low 65.
  • Friday-Partly cloudy, with a few showers and storms possible, mainly in the afternoon. High 86.
  • Saturday-Scattered showers and thunderstorms, otherwise partly to mostly cloudy. High 83.
  • Sunday-Rain and thunderstorms likely. High 78.

A cold front is to our northwest, and taking its sweet time getting here. So we’re going to have very warm and humid weather at least through Friday. Our typical pop-up shower and thunderstorm chance applies for both days, but thanks to a tropical low pressure near the Carolinas, better chances of rain may exist later on Friday.

That cold front does arrive on Sunday, and the closer it gets to us will mean the more rain and storms it will provide. So expect more numerous wet weather on Saturday, and a cooler day with a lot more clouds, rain and storms on Sunday. We might not see 80 degrees for a high on Sunday.

The good news is, we’ll be nowhere near our record high for September 10th of 96 degrees. That happened a year ago tomorrow. Some folks may get temperatures approaching 90, but it won’t be anything like that.

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