Rain and thunderstorms have indeed moved through the area today, with quite a bit of thunder and lightning and heavy rainfall. There’s a small chance of that tonight and tomorrow before the summer heat returns. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast through Friday!
When it hasn’t been raining, today has been quite muggy. It’s not been pleasant outside, quite honestly. The heat begins to ratchet itself up tomorrow, with the hottest days this season so far ahead of us. Here’s the outlook:
- Tonight-Cloudy with some evening showers and storms. Some morning fog. Low 67.
- Tuesday-Sunny and hot, maybe a pop-up shower or thunderstorm late. Highs near 90.
- Tuesday night-Partly cloudy, a stray rain shower lingering in the evening. Low 64.
- Wednesday-Sunny and hot. High 93.
- Thursday-Sunny and hot. High 94.
- Friday-Partly cloudy with some scattered showers and storms. High 87.
We do have a cold front that will move through tomorrow, which means there are still chances of rain to be had both tonight and on Tuesday for much of the area…just not all at the same time. In fact, Tuesday looks more like a summer pop-up storms day than anything else, with maybe a couple storms lingering into the evening.
High pressure moves over us toward midweek, bringing mostly sunny and hot weather, likely the hottest of the season so far. We’ll have a chance at the mid 90s perhaps on Wednesday, but most likely on Thursday.
Thursday night, we’ll start to see a cold front approaching from the north. That will increase cloud cover and the possibility of showers and storms on Friday, especially in the afternoon. Those will be forced by the front, not as much by the heat of the day. Both will work together, so heavy rain could be possible at times on Friday.
Thanks for checking here for the forecast! Have a great Tuesday!
