The rain has pretty much ended for our area from Tropical Storm Michael. In its place (and behind the cold front), cooler weather is on its way. It’s starting to feel like fall in today’s Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast!
The flood warnings posted earlier have either expired or were removed from west to east this afternoon. A good supply of sunshine has arrived for folks southwest of I-26, and should be around for all of us by the end of the afternoon. Here’s the outlook that features the cooler weather!
- Tonight-Becoming partly cloudy. Lows near 40.
- Friday-Partly cloudy. High 62.
- Friday night-Partly to mostly cloudy, maybe a rain shower late. Low 45.
- Saturday-Partly cloudy, a small chance of rain early in the day. High 64.
- Sunday-Mostly cloudy, with showers and storms possible late. High 63.
- Monday-Cloudy with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs near 70.
The rain we’ve seen today will break the record for most precipitation on record for our area on October 11th. It looks like around 0.88″ of rain fell at the airport, which breaks our record of 0.52″ from four years ago. It doesn’t look like we’ll add to that this evening.
We’ll have dry weather and cooler conditions tonight and tomorrow. Some in colder spots may drop into the upper 30’s overnight. Tomorrow, our high will be in the low 60’s, a bit below average for this time of year.
A disturbance brings a small chance of rain Friday night into early Saturday morning, but shouldn’t have any impact on high school football. Any rain that happens should be late at night through the early morning. By mid-morning Saturday, any rain will likely be gone, and we’ll have a great fall day.
Clouds increase Saturday night, with rain moving in Sunday afternoon. Our best chance of rain looks to be on Monday into Tuesday as a cold front moves through.
Thanks for checking here for the forecast, have a great Friday!
