October 22, 2019 Leave a comment

The rain has departed our area, and the sun is out! Get used to that and some cooler weather, as that will continue in the coming days. Here’s a quick look at the forecast through Friday!

  • Tonight-Mostly clear with morning frost possible. Low 38.
  • Wednesday-Mostly sunny. High 63.
  • Wednesday night-Mostly clear. Low 33.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny. High 68.
  • Friday-Increasing clouds, with a small chance of rain. High 64.

Now that the most recent cold front has drifted to our east, we’ll see sunny conditions each day into part of Friday. It will be cold, though, as our overnight low tomorrow night will be juts a tick above freezing…the coldest we’ve seen in a while!

Our next chance of rain is coming up on Friday as a cold front swings through. I’m still not sure when the most rain will fall, either Friday afternoon, Friday night or Saturday, but I’ll get a little better knowledge on that in the next day or two. As it is right now, be prepared Friday afternoon for some possible rain showers.

I’ll keep you informed on all of that, with a new weather update coming up soon that will include my first look at this weekend’s forecast!

It’s a cloudy, foggy, drizzly day around our area on this Sunday afternoon. We’ll clear up a bit tonight and tomorrow, but scattered showers and storms return tomorrow night and Tuesday. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for this week!

The rain we’re getting is rain we’ve needed after a very dry September. It honestly feels a bit like November this afternoon! We did break a rainfall record yesterday, the most rain on an October 19th in recorded history (weather records started at the airport in 1937). That’s very helpful!

More rain is coming in a couple different waves Monday night and Tuesday, then again either late Friday or on Saturday. Here’s the outlook for the next five days:

  • Tonight-Clouds and fog. Low 52.
  • Monday-Partly to mostly cloudy. Maybe a rain shower late. High 72.
  • Monday night-Rain likely with possible thunderstorms. Low 57.
  • Tuesday-Cloudy with showers and storms mainly early. High 65.
  • Wednesday-Becoming mostly sunny. High 63.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny. High 68.
  • Friday-Increasing clouds with scattered showers possible. High 65.

Tonight continues our cloudy and foggy trend, at least for a little while. We might have some clearing in spots by morning. The more I look at the forecast trends, I’m thinking Monday should be dry for most of us. That said, a rain shower by the end of tomorrow afternoon can’t be ruled out. By far, the better chances of rain are tomorrow night and Tuesday.

Thunderstorms are possible in that, including chances for a strong storm or two. For overnight, that means loud storms that may annoy pets and awaken children. So be prepared for that if it happens. We should see a decent amount of rain as a cold front moves through tomorrow night or Tuesday morning.

Once the front moves through, rain will be gone for a while. Expect the rain to end Tuesday afternoon, with dry days thanks to high pressure on Wednesday and Thursday.

From there, our next chance of rain is complicated. We’ve got chances of rain either on Friday afternoon or Saturday afternoon at this point thanks to a new cold front on its way. So I’ve included in the outlook a chance of showers on Friday. That may well be delayed to Saturday, though. We’ll see how it goes. It all depends on how much the high pressure slows down the new cold front at this point.

I’ll have more on all of that as we get closer to it. Have a great week!

There’s not a lot of time before the sports show begins on WETB, so I’ll have to make this a quick forecast. Here we go:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy. Low 38.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny. High 58.
  • Thursday night-Partly cloudy to mostly clear. Low 37.
  • Friday-Mostly sunny. High 65.
  • Saturday-Partly cloudy, with rain moving in late. High 72.
  • Sunday-Partly cloudy, some rain early in the day. High 74.

The cold front that just passed will bring us lows in the 30’s for a couple nights at least. By Saturday, a new cold front brings more rain, most of which could happen Saturday night and early Sunday.

I will have more updates on that in the coming days. have a great evening!

We’re in the middle of October, which is typically our driest month of the year. This week looks to prove it, with only one day of rain likely in the next five days. Welcome to this week’s Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast!

First of all, a programming note. We’ve just added a new radio station! Starting tomorrow, you can hear me every day on WETB 790 AM in the Tri-Cities, and at In fact, I’m also broadcasting a sports talk show each weekday evening on WETB called The Sports Drive. It starts each evening at 6pm and goes until either we have a game broadcast or 8 PM, whichever comes first! So make sure to tune in, and tweet me to say hello!

That said, the launch of the new station and its format kept me from here for the past week. WETB is causing some changes, and may well result in me doing forecasts and this blog earlier each day. So keep it tuned here and I’ll let you know what’s up.

Now…on to the weather, noting that our average high this time of year should be near 70, with lows around 44. Here’s this week’s outlook!

  • Tonight-Clear skies with some fog in spots. Low 43.
  • Monday-Mostly sunny. High 74.
  • Monday night-Mostly clear. Lows near 40.
  • Tuesday-Mostly sunny. High 72.
  • Wednesday-Cloudy skies with scattered showers and storms. High 65.
  • Thursday-Partly cloudy. Highs near 60.
  • Friday-Mostly sunny. high 67.

High pressure keeps things calm and dry until a cold front pushes rain in here Tuesday night. That cold front passes through our area on Wednesday morning, and will take the rain with it. That will leave us with dry and cooler weather to finish off the week.

That’s it for now! I’ll have updates on everything that’s changing on the blog as I get them figured out. Have a great week!

Finally, some rain has arrived! The Tri-Cities Airport has recorded close to half an inch of rain today, the most we’ve seen in nearly a month! The good news is that more rain is coming to help our drought conditions this week. Here’s the forecast:

  • Overnight-Clouds and scattered showers. Low 62.
  • Monday-Cloudy with scattered showers, maybe a thunderstorm. High 75.
  • Monday night-Clouds and scattered showers. Low 55.
  • Tuesday-Mostly cloudy with some scattered showers. Highs near 70.
  • Wednesday-Partly to mostly sunny. High 77.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny. High 78.
  • Friday-Partly cloudy. High 78.

A cold front is poised not too far northwest of us this evening as we head into the overnight hours. It’ll move through our area tomorrow afternoon, so expect off and on rain showers through Monday, with a chance of a couple thunderstorms moving through as well.

Rain chances continue behind the front for Monday night and Tuesday before we clear out toward the middle of the week. Then, high pressure will bring us back to sunshine, with temperatures topping out at close to 80 degrees Wednesday through Friday.

Another cold front gets into our area Friday night and comes through on Saturday, which could bring more rain into our area by that time. Getting rain every few days is something we definitely need to kick us out of the September drought we just finished.

Thanks for checking here for the forecast, have a great week!
