With all the NASCAR fans out of town, we now turn our focus to the eclipse! And it doesn’t look like there will be much of a problem seeing it, just make sure you have the right kind of gear for your eyes! Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog for tonight through Friday!

We reached 90 degrees in the Tri-Cities today, and every computer thinks that will happen tomorrow as well. The eclipse will go on for nearly three hours, so I think we’ll fall short of that. Later this week, storms come in and cooler temperatures arrive. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Mostly fair, with patchy morning fog. Low 65.
  • Monday-Mostly sunny (except from 1:07 to 3:59) with a small chance of a mountain shower. High 89.
  • Monday night-Partly cloudy. Low 66.
  • Tuesday-Mostly sunny, a small chance of a pop-up shower or thunderstorm. Highs near 90.
  • Wednesday-Scattered showers and thunderstorms. High 78.
  • Thursday-Partly cloudy. Highs near 80. Maybe a rain shower in the morning.
  • Friday-Mostly sunny. High 81.

For the eclipse tomorrow, be sure not to use normal sunglasses, but the ones that are approved by NASA or a similar organization. I’m not sure if there are any left around here, so if you don’t have any, be sure to not look at the eclipse! As it is at any time, looking directly at the sun without proper protection is dangerous.

All that said, everyone in the Tri-Cities should be able to see the eclipse. According to the National Weather Service, we should see 96.48% totality tomorrow…not completely, but close enough. That’s why I think we don’t hit 90 tomorrow. However, other than the height of the eclipse, Monday should still be a hot day.

After that, Tuesday should be a sunny day with a small chance of rain until late. A cold front will arrive on Wednesday and bring storms ahead of it Tuesday night and during the day Wednesday.

Behind the front, we’ll see cooler than average temperatures, going from 5 degrees above that today to that far below it on Thursday with a small chance of rain early. Friday looks fantastic, with a good supply of sunshine and we’ll just hit 80 on the last day of the work week.

That means if you’re going to the Appalachian Fair, my suggestion would be Thursday or Friday. Wednesday doesn’t look good at all, while the first two days look quite hot, typical of late August. While you’re there, make sure to visit the WHCB booth inside commercial building #1, especially during the hot days since there’s air conditioning! Top Gun Radio will be outside that building with Love FM nearby as well. I’ll be in the WHCB booth on Saturday morning.

Have a great week, everyone! Thanks for reading the weekly forecast today!

It’s been a very interesting weekend, not necessarily weather wise over the past couple days. We have showers and storms in the forecast each day, but we’ll have at least two mostly dry days this week. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Friday!

To the outlook we go…

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy, a small chance of rain. Low 68.
  • Monday-Partly cloudy with a few scattered showers and storms. High 83.
  • Monday night-A few rain showers or storms are possible. Low 68.
  • Tuesday-Partly cloudy, with a slight chance of rain or a thunderstorm. High 85.
  • Wednesday-Mostly sunny, only a slight chance of rain. High 87.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny, a slight chance of rain. High 88.
  • Friday-Partly cloudy with scattered showers and storms. High 86.

An old cold front will transition into a warm front by Tuesday, then slowly move north through our area by Wednesday. Once that gets through here, August-like warmth and humidity will return later in the week. A cold front brings a better chance of rain for Friday.

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

It’s a sunny, dry Sunday, but that trend ends starting late tonight, with scattered storms likely off and on through much of the coming week. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast through Friday!

A cold front moves through tomorrow, and ahead of that showers and possible storms start later tonight. We’ll see rain and storms off an on during a cloudy day tomorrow, highs only getting into the mid 70’s with all the clouds around. Storms are likely to continue tomorrow night, with lows in the upper 60’s.

Tuesday will be partly cloudy, but also feature some scattered showers and storms from time to time and highs near 80. Wednesday should have more periods with dry weather, but scattered storms are still possible with highs around 83.

Late in the week, a stationary front will be hanging around, so each day will bring partly cloudy conditions with off-and-on showers and storms. Highs should end up in the low 80’s, with 84 the warmest day of the week on Friday if the rain doesn’t get us early in the day.

That’s it! Tomorrow will be the coolest, most rainy day of the week, with the rest of the week with good portions of the day with sunshine each day. That’s what gets us to near 80 Tuesday, and into the low 80’s each day the rest of the week.

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

After a hot week of vacation, one cold front caused much more comfortable temperatures around the Tri-Cities! We’ll stay near our average for this time of year as August begins, with rain chances resuming Wednesday. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Friday!

First of all, thanks to Cody Ray for handling the radio on-air forecast for me this past week. I didn’t go anywhere, but it was good to stay home a couple days last week and do nothing! I’m catching up a bit early in the week, which is not surprising for returning from a week off.

That said, it won’t be too terribly hot this week, with good chances of rain holding off until Thursday or Friday. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy. Low 56.
  • Monday-Mostly sunny. High 86.
  • Monday night-Partly cloudy. Lows near 60.
  • Tuesday-Mostly sunny. High 85.
  • Wednesday-Mostly sunny with a small chance of rain. High 85.
  • Thursday-Partly cloudy with a small chance of rain. High 87.
  • Friday-Cloudy with scattered showers and thunderstorms. High 82.

After the past two days of sunshine and more comfortable weather, temperatures and humidity will slowly move up during the week. After near record lows tonight (record is 55 degrees, set in 1993), we’ll have sunshine and dry conditions at least through Tuesday.

The chances of afternoon showers and storms return on Wednesday and Thursday. A cold front comes in from the west late Thursday and moves through on Friday, and if that still happens we could see a day full of showers and storms on Friday with much cooler temperatures. In fact, it may be a carbon copy of this past Friday.

It’s good to be back and in the swing of things, with no more vacations until November as it stands right now. I’ll bring the latest forecast each afternoon (as possible) between 4 and 7 PM here to the blog, so keep checking here for the forecast. Have a great week!

The middle of summer is upon us, and the weather will reflect that this week! Hot conditions will continue in this week’s Tri-Cities Weather Blog weekly forecast!

High pressure will block anything from getting here through the week, so expect a lot of sunshine, heat and increasing humidity through the next five days. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy, with morning fog possible. Low 62.
  • Monday-Mostly sunny, a small chance of rain in the mountains. Highs near 90.
  • Monday night-Partly cloudy. Low 64.
  • Tuesday-Mostly sunny, with a slight chance of a shower or thunderstorm. High 90.
  • Wednesday-Sunny and hot. Highs near 90.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny and hot. High 92.
  • Friday-Mostly sunny with a few afternoon showers and storms possible. High 93.

I’m not going to drill you with things to do to stay cool this week, you know what to do in terms of drinking water, doing outdoor things in the morning or evening and the like. Do be sure to check on your pets or any elderly folks you know to make sure they are cool this week!

I’ll have updates on the blog throughout the rest of the week, so keep checking here for the forecast. Have a great week!
