April 26, 2021 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

It didn’t start out very warm at all, but this has been a fantastic Monday from a weather standpoint! Temperatures in the mid to upper 70s are always something to be happy about! And that will get even better for the next couple days. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Friday!

It was definitely a little chilly to have on warm weather gear this morning, but it’s perfect right now! And thanks to our temperatures warming up today, the nights won’t be as cold, either. Tuesday and Wednesday look fantastic, as does a good bit of Thursday, before rain returns. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Mostly clear, low 47.
  • Tuesday-Mostly sunny. High 83.
  • Tuesday night-Partly cloudy. Low 54.
  • Wednesday-Partly cloudy. High 83.
  • Thursday-Increasing clouds, a few showers and storms possible late, mainly overnight. High 82.
  • Friday-Cloudy with scattered showers. High 68.

Currently, we’re on the western side of high pressure, which means dry weather and warming conditions. We won’t have any weather problems through Wednesday, and we’ll see temperatures in the low 80s at least for highs the next couple days.

Meanwhile, the system that brings our next chance of rain late Thursday is in the Rockies down toward the southwest. That will move across the Plains by Wednesday, then start bringing rain in here Thursday afternoon. We could have some scattered showers and storms then, but the best chance of rain will be just before the cold front moves through here Thursday night.

That cold front moves in from the west, and right on its heels will be a quick-moving front in from the northwest. So I’ll have to continue chances for scattered showers on Friday, as temperatures get back to around average for this time of year. As of now (and it’s still a long way away to be specific), it does look like we might have dry weather for this weekend.

I’ll have updates on that as we go through the next few days. Have a great Tuesday!
