December 2, 2021 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

Thursday, December 2

Updated forecasts to the weather blog resume during the month of my birthday! It’s still a few weeks out, but I’m absolutely ready for it. Meanwhile, I will endeavor to post more forecasts here each week than I have during a rather tumultuous 2021. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast today!

Typically, this weather blog works two ways. I give a preview of the forecast in the first paragraph, a little more detail of what to expect in the second one, then there’s the Outlook. If you don’t have time to read a few hundred word blog, you can get a quick forecast in the outlook each day, a bulleted list of the quick forecast for the coming days. And here it is!

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy, with some fog in the morning. Lows near 40.
  • Friday-Partly to mostly sunny, and warm. High 68.
  • Friday night-Partly to mostly cloudy. Low 42.
  • Saturday-Partly cloudy conditions with highs near 60.
  • Sunday-Partly cloudy skies also, with a high of 62.
  • Monday-Mostly cloudy with rain showers. High 53.

From here on, the weather blog features on the discussion…some more detail on why the weather is doing what it’s doing over the next four or five days. In this instance, we have a cold front moving through tomorrow, with a warm front shortly thereafter. We’ll have a net gain of a few degrees after that, leading to a quite warm day on Friday. That high of 68 is a full fifteen degrees above our average for early December.

We’ll have assorted amounts of clouds for Friday night through the weekend, but we should get a decent amount of sunshine as highs get up to the low 60s on Saturday and Sunday. Late Sunday night, a cold front moves in, and that will bring our best chance of the rain in the forecast through the day on Monday.

Please visit the About page for more about me, my background and meteorological credentials, and the stations where I broadcast. The list is up to five these days: WHCB 91.5 FM (and 103.3 FM in Southwest Virginia), 96.3 The Possum (which is also 870 AM all around and 100.7 FM near Kingsport), 97.3 Love FM (includes 1090 AM in the Tri-Cities and 100.3 FM, also near Kingsport), Truth 104.1 is also WABN and can be located at 1230 AM in southwest Virginia as well. Finally, there’s GOAT FM, our newest station at 790 AM in the Tri-Cities and a much better, cleaner signal at 93.7 FM.

That’s a whole boatload of different places my forecast can be heard at least once an hour! Should there not be a blog here for some reason, I do record a fresh forecast every day on each of those stations above.

Also, I’m lending my voice to broadcasting my alma mater’s high school sports, the Sullivan East Patriots! We were just in Bluff City the other day, as Jacob Harr and I broadcast a thriller between the Daniel Boone and East boys teams, and a big win for the girls from Bluff City also. We have 14 more games we’re planning to broadcast through February, and they’re all on 96.3 FM, with announcements each day on when the next game airs!

Whew. That’s a lot going on! And that’s what’s led to my recent absence from here. But let’s use December as a fresh start, and I’ll be back with a new forecast soon. Have a great Friday!
