July 17, 2018 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

As the sun shines this afternoon, I remember about an hour ago as thunderstorms moved through the Blountville area near the airport. It was interesting to see the storm coming on radar, then step outside and watch the actual weather move right over me. I love doing those things, but starting this evening, there won’t be much chance of that for a couple days. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Saturday!

There are still storms coming in from southeast Kentucky, and that could bring more wet weather across our area through the evening hours. A cold front will bring less humid conditions by then, and we’ll have mostly dry weather through much of Friday. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy with some evening showers and storms. Low 64.
  • Wednesday-Mainly sunny. High 86.
  • Wednesday night-Partly cloudy. Lows near 60.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny, maybe a stray mountain shower or storm. High 87.
  • Friday-Partly cloudy, maybe some rain or a thunderstorm late. High 88.
  • Saturday-Mostly cloudy with scattered showers and storms. High 84.

Radar is showing a few showers and storms around the area, from parts of Kentucky to Virginia and Tennessee. Those will continue moving southeast through tonight, so expect more in the way of rain and lightning and thunder between now and midnight. It doesn’t appear that storms are severe, but you’ll need to make sure to get indoors when you hear thunder. As I noted personally earlier today, lightning is frightening!

Once the front moves through, temperatures won’t cool much, but we will see less humid weather at least for Wednesday. A couple mountain storms may pop up on Thursday and Friday, but we won’t see anything organized come up until a warm front comes through Friday night and a cold front approaches Saturday. That will bring us more in the way of rain and thunderstorms.

As it looks right now, showers and storms are likely both Saturday and Sunday, with temperatures in the low 80’s. The more storms we see, the lower temperatures there will be. Our average this time of year is 86 degrees, and it appears we’ll be a bit below that each day this weekend.

I’ll have more on the weekend forecast tomorrow. If you’re headed out to FunFest in Kingsport tonight, make sure you keep an eye to the sky, as more storms are possible. Have a great Wednesday!

We have some scattered showers and storms all across the area on this Monday, and a cold front will keep that going off and on through tomorrow. Dry weather continues for a couple days after that. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Friday!

Be careful driving around today, as storms could make driving interesting the way they’re in some places and not in others. If you’re planning on watching any Appalachian League baseball games, there’s a good chance we might see some delays. Tomorrow doesn’t look like a great day weather wise, either. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Cloudy with some scattered showers and thunderstorms. Lows near 70.
  • Tuesday-Mostly cloudy. Scattered showers and thunderstorms. High 84.
  • Tuesday night-A few evening showers or storms, then partly cloudy. Low 65.
  • Wednesday-Becoming mostly sunny. High 86.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny. High 87.
  • Friday-Partly cloudy with a few showers and storms developing late. High 88.

A cold front northwest of here will continue to fire off showers and thunderstorms for us as it approaches our area. It should move through here sometime during the middle of the day, so off-and-on showers and storms should continue for the majority of tomorrow, potentially into the evening hours.

After that, we’ll clear out for a while, as Wednesday and Thursday look dry. Meanwhile, that cold front will transition to a warm front, as is typical this time of year, down to our south. It’ll come back as a warm front by Friday, bringing new rain chances to us.

As of right now, we could see Saturday and Sunday end up a lot like today and tomorrow, as far as a lot of scattered showers and storms around us. I’ll have more on that tomorrow and throughout the week, because as we get closer to it I’ll have a better idea about the weekend’s weather.

Thanks for checking here for the forecast! I attempt to post a forecast each afternoon before 6 PM, so watch for it each day! If I don’t post one, you can always hear me on WHCB 91.5 FM, 96.3 The Possum, or 97.3 Love FM. We also stream online at,, and Make sure to let us know you’re listening!

There are some clouds hanging low around the area as we get close to noon on this Friday. There’s nothing on the radar as the sun goes in and out of those clouds, and that’s going to be the case for a lot of the time from here through at least early Sunday. Welcome to the Tri-Cites Weather Blog forecast through Tuesday!

Northeast Tennessee has temperatures in the low 80’s as of almost lunch time, with cooler areas up north and on the mountains, while warmer temperatures are happening near the Knoxville area. Suffice it to say that we’ve got a normal summer day on our hands! We’re going to get one more, maybe two, before we get some storms starting Sunday. Here’s the outlook:

  • Today-Partly to mostly sunny. Highs near 90.
  • Tonight-Partly cloudy, low 65.
  • Saturday-Mostly sunny, maybe a pop-up shower or thunderstorm. High 91.
  • Saturday night-Partly cloudy. Low 67.
  • Sunday-Partly to mostly sunny, a few scattered afternoon showers and storms. High 90.
  • Monday-Partly cloudy with scattered showers and thunderstorms. High 88.
  • Tuesday-Partly cloudy with scattered showers and storms. High 85.

Normal summer weather, as mentioned above, will continue through Saturday and early Sunday. It’ll be hot and humid, with a small chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon. Most people won’t get rain through Saturday, but it is possible, so keep an eye and ear out for those each afternoon today and tomorrow.

A cold front starts to move our direction by Sunday afternoon, and that will enhance our opportunities for rain and storms for the rest of the forecast. The best chances of rain for sure are Monday and Tuesday when the front is closest. It looks to potentially move through our area sometime Wednesday. We’ll see temperatures a few degrees cooler after that, with less humidity.

That’s it for this forecast! It’s a little early because I was up and in the office early. This, of course, means an early weekend is coming for me! Have a good one!

Another 90 degree day is in the books here in the Tri-Cities. We’ll get a break from that tomorrow thanks to a few storms here and there, but that break won’t last long at all. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Saturday!

Everyone from the Tri-Cities to Oak Ridge pretty much is in the low 90’s this afternoon as of just before 4pm today. That’s a common occurrence this time of year to be sure, and will certainly be commonplace for most of the forecast. And here it is:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy, with morning fog possible. Low 65.
  • Wednesday-Partly cloudy, a few mainly afternoon scattered showers and storms. High 87.
  • Wednesday night-Partly cloudy, only a small chance of evening showers. Low 64.
  • Thursday-Becoming mostly sunny, a pop-up storm may happen in the mountains. High 90.
  • Friday-Sunny with a small chance of an afternoon thunderstorm. High 91.
  • Saturday-Mostly sunny, a small chance of rain late. High 92.

A very weak cold front will slowly crawl through Southwest Virginia through our area tomorrow. That will bring us those scattered storms during the afternoon. I’m certain we’ll see some rain, but at the same time, it won’t rain “all day.” That’s why I think temperatures will still be in the upper 80’s by the end of the day. There’s not that much organized with this thing.

By tomorrow evening, what’s with the front will likely be gone. Things go back to Tuesday like conditions by Thursday, with the mountains maybe getting a stray pop-up thunderstorm then.

Friday and Saturday, we all get into the act with a small chance of rain, but mainly sunny and hot conditions. We’ll get into the low 90’s each day, and Sunday very likely looks the same at this point.

That’s all for today’s forecast. Have a great evening and a fantastic Wednesday!

It’s another sunny and hot summer afternoon around the Tri-Cities, but there is rain in spots. Rain will increase in number with showers and thunderstorms increasing as well tonight into tomorrow. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Monday!

As of 6:15 PM, it’s raining near Johnson City and Hampton. Storms are there and near the Virginia/Kentucky border as well. There is more rain to the north of that thanks to a cold front that comes through tomorrow. That will bring an end to the heat wave! Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy, with a few scattered showers and storms. Lows near 70.
  • Friday-Cloudy with scattered showers and storms, heavy rain in spots. High 83.
  • Friday night-Scattered showers and storms, heavy rain possible. Low 65.
  • Saturday-A few rain showers early, then partly cloudy. High 84.
  • Sunday-Mostly sunny. High 86.
  • Monday-Mostly sunny. High 88.

The storms we’re seeing around the area this evening are the regular summer pop-up storm variety, not organized just yet. That’s coming late tonight and through tomorrow with that cold front. Heavy rain could bring a bit of flash flooding in spots, so be careful if you’re out in it when the rains do come.

Rain comes to an end on Saturday, and we’ll see sunshine pouring back in fairly quickly. With the clouds, temperatures will be in the low 80’s tomorrow, and we’ll stay there for a good part of Saturday. After that, we’ll inch into the mid and upper 80’s for the rest of the weekend and into Monday.

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