Nate’s rainfall has made it a rather dreary Sunday. More rain is on the way off and on through the first half of the week thanks to a cold front that will kick the tropical system out of here soon. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Friday!

Hurricane Nate made landfall Saturday evening, and didn’t tarry along the Gulf Coast, moving through Alabama and into Tennessee quickly. It will move through eastern Kentucky on its way to western Pennsylvania tomorrow, and out the Northeast coast by the end of Tuesday.

That said, a cold front will bring rain chances back in after just a small break. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Rain and wind, both of which heavy and gusty at times. Low 68.
  • Monday-Rain showers in the morning, partly cloudy late. High 82.
  • Monday night-Mostly cloudy with rain showers developing. Low 65.
  • Tuesday-Cloudy with scattered showers and storms. High 78.
  • Wednesday-Cloudy with scattered showers and storms, mainly early. High 83.
  • Thursday-Partly cloudy. High 78.
  • Friday-Mostly sunny. High 78.

Rain from Nate will continue through tomorrow morning, then by the end of the afternoon things will try to clear out again. After that, the cold front to our west will arrive, bringing better rain chances Tuesday and Wednesday.

From there, high pressure follows the front and brings dry weather back to our area for the rest of the week, with only a small chance of rain on Thursday.

I’ll have an update on the forecast tomorrow afternoon. Have a great week!

October is here, and with it typically comes a few long dry spells. We ended September with one, and the first week of October looks to continue that trend. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog weekly forecast!

This one won’t take long to unpack, really. There aren’t even any hurricanes to talk about in the Atlantic! So here’s the outlook for the week:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy. Low 42.
  • Monday-Mostly sunny. High 77.
  • Monday night-Partly cloudy. Low 46.
  • Tuesday-Sunny. High 79.
  • Wednesday-Sunny. Highs near 80.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny. High 81.
  • Friday-Partly to mostly sunny, a (very) small chance of rain. Highs near 80.

High pressure in the eastern part of the country is basically keeping anything from happening. As we go through the week, a cold front will move from the Plains to across the Midwest, going from basically north/south to almost entirely east/west in the process. In fact, that front will join a new system by the time we get to the end of the week.

That front will get as close as the Ohio River by Friday. That’s why I’ve posted a very small chance of rain at the end of the week. But even then, I’m not excited about rain chances at least through next weekend.

So with temperatures in the upper 70’s to close to 80 all week long for highs and mid 40’s to near 50 for lows, fall has arrived for sure. Have a great week!

It was a dry and very warm-to-hot weekend. Similar weather will continue through Wednesday. A cold front changes things for late this week. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog weekly forecast!

High pressure continues to keep our weather calm for the first half of the week, but changes are coming! Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Mostly clear, with patchy morning fog. Low 58.
  • Monday-Mostly sunny. High 87.
  • Monday night-Partly cloudy. Lows near 60.
  • Tuesday-Mostly sunny. High 86.
  • Wednesday-Mostly sunny. High 86.
  • Thursday-Partly cloudy, maybe a few rain showers. Highs near 80.
  • Friday-Partly cloudy, maybe a rain shower early. High 78.

Typically for late September, we’re at 76 at most during the day and 51 at the low point each day. So we’re 13 degrees above normal with today’s 89 degree high temperature. In fact, 89 degrees is a record high for a day or two early this week.

I think we’ll stay below that, but it’s going to be close. A cold front comes through by Thursday, bringing clouds, some showers, and cooler weather. It’ll feel much more like fall by the time we get to Friday for sure.

Thanks for checking here for the forecast! I’ll have another one tomorrow afternoon. Have a great week!

After a chilly Saturday, Sunday has been pretty much a perfect day. Our temperatures get warmer tomorrow before we see a cold front bring rain for the middle of the week. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog weekly forecast!

We’re seeing temperatures in the mid 70’s around the Tri-Cities as the sun begins to set on Sunday evening. Low dewpoints mean we’ll have some nice, cool temperatures tonight. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Fair skies. Low 56.
  • Monday-Mostly sunny. High 82.
  • Monday night-Partly cloudy. Lows near 60.
  • Tuesday-Increasing clouds with some scattered showers and storms. Highs near 80.
  • Wednesday-Cloudy skies with light rain. High 67.
  • Thursday-Becoming partly cloudy. High 68.
  • Friday- Mostly sunny. Highs near 70.

Our early September averages are highs of 83 and lows of 59. So we’re going to be close to that by the time the cold front bring showers and maybe some storms on Tuesday. The front slows down after it goes over the mountains, so Wednesday may well be a cool and rainy day like we saw on Saturday. Things clear up for the latter half of the work week.

All that said, everyone’s eyes are on Irma. As many of my reputable meteorologist friends are already saying, it is way too early to know where that storm is going. And it won’t be a category 6 because the Saffir-Simpson scale we use for hurricane intensity stops at Category 5. So keep those things in mind as you scroll Facebook this week.

That said, computer models are showing the storm moving toward the Southeast coast, but not until the 11th or 12th. So over the course of this week, there’s not going to be much happening from a tropical standpoint in the United States, unless you’re in Puerto Rico. Irma will be close to there by this coming Wednesday.

So, enjoy your Labor Day, and I’ll bring another forecast tomorrow. Have a great week!

August 27, 2017 #TriCitiesWx Weekly Forecast

Thankfully, our weather is calm around the Tri-Cities as we start to finish the month of August. By the time we do, moisture from Harvey may well be in play in our area. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast through Friday!

First and foremost, whatever we eventually get from Harvey won’t hold a candle to what’s happened in southeast Texas this weekend and the next few days while the storm is down there. We may expect an inch of rain in the next week, as opposed to 27 inches that may be possible down there to add to the tremendous disaster conditions going on there.

Aside from that, another system may develop to our southeast. It might become a tropical storm, but it’s not likely to hang around long. There’s low pressure in Florida right now, and as it gets into the Atlantic it may develop somewhat. Thankfully, the same system that is part of the reason Harvey isn’t moving much will get this system off the East Coast quickly. It should be gone by Wednesday, in fact.

With all that said, here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy. Lows near 60.
  • Monday-Partly cloudy. Highs near 80.
  • Monday night-Partly cloudy, maybe a shower or thunderstorm. Lows near 60.
  • Tuesday-Partly cloudy with a few showers and storms possible. Highs near 80.
  • Wednesday-Partly cloudy with a few showers and storms possible. High 81.
  • Thursday-Partly cloudy with a few scattered showers and storms. High 81.
  • Friday-Partly to mostly cloudy with scattered storms late. High 81.

It looks like the tropical systems to our southwest and southeast will help keep us cool in the coming days. Proximity to those systems (even a couple hundred miles) does that sometimes. So we’ll have lows right at average through the week, with highs about 5 degrees cooler. It won’t be as humid as most late August afternoons as well at least for the first day or two.

One cold front will get pretty close toward midweek, but it’s going to wash out before it gets to the Ohio River. So instead of having a short run of showers and storms that are more intense, we’ll have a prolonged period of time with a small chance of rain each day until what’s left of Harvey gets here late in the week toward the weekend.

It took a while, but that’s the forecast! There’s a lot going on, and you can’t do a weather forecast right during a time like this without mentioning the big weather story. Please be in prayer for the folks in southeast Texas and consider giving to reputable agencies who will help those folks out. It will be a long time before things are back to normal there!
