At midnight tonight, we’ll be eleven months through 2018 already! The penultimate day of the month wasn’t a fun one weather wise today, with all the clouds, rain and fog. More is on the way into December, but not for long. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast through Tuesday!

It’s gotten more foggy in Blountville  as the day has gone on today near the airport. That will likely continue tonight with off-and-on scattered showers. Rain continues tomorrow, but we’ll get a break late in the weekend. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Clouds and fog, some light rain. Low 48.
  • Saturday-Cloudy with rain showers. Highs near 60.
  • Saturday night-Mostly cloudy with scattered showers. Low 48.
  • Sunday-Partly cloudy, maybe a rain shower. High 65.
  • Monday-Partly cloudy. Highs near 60.
  • Tuesday-Cloudy with a few rain showers. High 48.

Low pressure is not far away in southeast Kentucky right now. That’s causing the mess of a weather day we’ve had today. The front coming from it gets through here early Sunday morning. That will push the rain out of here.

Then for Sunday afternoon through Monday, we’ll have unseasonably warm weather and a lack of rain. Highs will be in the mid 60’s for Sunday and close to 60 on Monday. Our average is in the low 50’s.

A new system arrives Tuesday, and may bring some rain by then. In fact, there’s a small chance it could change to snow during the late afternoon. I’ll have another forecast by that time with all the details.

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

Cold weather is moving in as we speak, with chances of snow in the near future. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for this week!

It’s hard to believe, but our high temperature for today will end up being 56 degrees…that’s how warm it was at 5AM! Behind the front, though, the cold air has come rushing in. Late this afternoon, we’ve cooled down into the upper 30’s, with some already near or just below freezing in the mountains. Here’s the outlook for the rest of the week:

  • Tonight-Cloudy skies, a few light snow showers. Low 25.
  • Tuesday-Mostly cloudy with some flurries. High 33.
  • Tuesday night-Cloudy with snow flurries. Low 20.
  • Wednesday-Partly cloudy. Highs near 40.
  • Thursday-Partly cloudy. High 47.
  • Friday-Mostly cloudy, a few rain showers. High 54.

Our average high temperature this time of year is 54 degrees. So we’ll be way below that tomorrow, but gain little by little toward that mark through the rest of the week. Flurries should persist off and on through tomorrow night, with no snow accumulation likely except maybe in the higher elevations.

Clouds at least partly get out of here for Wednesday and Thursday, two dry days that will bring temperatures back up somewhat. By Friday, rain chances move in as we finally get temperatures back toward what we typically see this time of year.

I’ll have a look at the weekend forecast with the next blog. Have a great Tuesday!

November 21, 2018 #TriCitiesWx Thanksgiving Forecast

November 21, 2018 Comments off

While clouds are not too far away, none of them appear in the sky over Blountville this afternoon. It’s a beautiful sunny day, and we’ll squeeze out another one for Thanksgiving before clouds start moving in on Friday. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and the weekend!

The sky will remain clear tonight, outside of some fog by morning. We’ll have lows around 28 degrees.

Tomorrow looks dry for Thanksgiving, as we’ll be between cold fronts. After the fog, we’ll have a sunny day, and we’ll warm up tomorrow to around 53 degrees. The sky will be clear tomorrow night for all the crazy shopping activities, with a low near 30. It’ll be chilly, so dress accordingly if you’re out early Friday morning.

The rest of Friday should be partly to mostly cloudy, as said clouds increase during the day. We’ll warm up to around 54 before rain moves in Friday night.

Rain is likely on Saturday during a mostly cloudy day. Highs will get up to around 57. We get another break in the rain for the daytime on Sunday, but after a partly to mostly cloudy day, rain moves in again for Sunday night. Sunday is the warmest day of the forecast, as our highs will be around 60.

Thanks for checking here for the forecast. I’ll have a new forecast on Friday afternoon. Happy Thanksgiving!

Well, it looks like the cold air hasn’t arrived as quickly as I thought. That’s good news…the forecast wasn’t as bad as I once thought it could be. Dry weather will be in the forecast the next few days, with temperatures near normal. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Saturday!

There was a bit of snow and “temperatures falling into the 30s” for our area, but only in the Southwest Virginia highlands. Wise and Tazewell have been in the 30’s most of the afternoon, while the rest of us stayed in the mid to upper 40’s. Warmer weather is ahead, and we might stay rain free until the weekend. Here’s the outlook for the quick details:

  • Tonight-Mostly cloudy. Low 29.
  • Wednesday-Partly cloudy to mostly sunny. High 47.
  • Wednesday night-Partly cloudy. Lows near 30.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny. High 54.
  • Friday-Partly cloudy. High 53.
  • Saturday-Clouds and rain showers. High 57.

The cold front moved through as planned, but the movement of the cold air into our area wasn’t what I expected. Things like that happen when you’re trying to predict the future! All that said, I’ve  spent a lot of the afternoon figuring out what happened…so next time we have a situation like this one I know how to forecast it better.

Most of the precip is over for our area, with only some light snow and rain near Wytheville. That’s all moving to the east away from us. Clouds will stick around tonight, and then start moving out during the day tomorrow.

From there, we’ll have two dry days with some sunshine through Friday. Clouds increase late Friday, with rain moving in Friday night through at least Saturday morning.

That’s the forecast for today…now I’ll go back to reviewing what went wrong when I did this yesterday. Don’t forget, my forecast as available hourly on 96.3 The Possum in the Tri-Cities, along with 97.3 Love FM and WHCB 91.5 FM. Thanks for listening!

A quick shot of rain and maybe some flurries starts soon, if it hasn’t already. None of it will last long or accumulate to much, and should be gone by Tuesday afternoon. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for the rest of the week!

A cold front is bringing scattered showers, mainly to southwest Virginia early this evening. Rain will come to northeast Tennessee soon as well, and some of that in the mountains will change to light snow showers or flurries by Tuesday. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Cloudy with scattered showers, snow showers in the mountains at times. Low 38.
  • Tuesday-Mostly cloudy, morning sprinkles or flurries, falling temperatures. Morning high, 48.
  • Tuesday night-Becoming partly cloudy. Low 27.
  • Wednesday-Partly cloudy, highs near 50.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny. High 53.
  • Friday-Increasing clouds with a few showers possible late. High 54.

A cold front swings through tonight, and that will drop our temperatures from our high today of 62. We’ll likely get to the mid 50’s at most the rest of the week. Rain continues this evening, and as temperatures fall, could change to light snow or flurries tomorrow. I’m not expecting much accumulation.

Things start to clear out tomorrow night, with dry weather much of the rest of the week. We could see a few stray rain showers late Friday, but it looks right now like the next cold front won’t bring rain to us until Friday night.

Thanks for checking here for the forecast!
