September 1, 2021 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

Thankfully, the worst is over when it comes to any rainfall from what’s left of Ida or the cold front. We’re going to get a few days of dry weather, which is a good thing for a lot of people around here. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through the weekend!

There are still issues with mudslides in Southwest Virginia near the town of Hurley. That’s way up there between Kentucky and West Virginia. Last I checked, there were evacuations in order in spots up there due to those issues. Thankfully, there shouldn’t be too much more rain to exacerbate those issues. Here’s the outlook through Sunday:

  • Tonight-Cloudy with a few scattered showers. Fog is possible in the morning. Low 58.
  • Thursday-Partly to mostly sunny. Highs near 80.
  • Thursday night-Mostly clear and cooler, low 52.
  • Friday-Partly cloudy, with highs near 80.
  • Saturday-Partly cloudy with a small chance of rain in the afternoon. High 83.
  • Sunday-Partly cloudy, a few showers and thunderstorms possible in the afternoon. High 82.

Some scattered showers are still around the area late this afternoon. Those should be going away as the cold front and the low pressure that was Hurricane Ida move away from us. Be aware that some fog is possible in the morning as our temperatures drop into the upper 50s.

We should see highs near 80 the next couple days, with partly to mostly sunny conditions Thursday and Friday. Thursday night will feature the coolest air we’ve had in a while, as overnight lows drop into the lower 50s for Friday morning.

The weekend looks mostly dry, but I can’t rule out a small chance of rain on Saturday and a few scattered showers and storms on Sunday. We should have afternoon highs in the low 80s, with lows each morning close to or maybe a bit above 60.

So, thankfully, it’s a calm forecast for most of the way. Thanks for checking here for the forecast. Have a great Thursday!
