May 14, 2021 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

Friday, May 14

We had a few rain showers today…it wasn’t totally unexpected, but I thought the chances of rain were too low to mention, so I said nothing. And that bit me forecast-wise today, as did the temperatures being a little cooler than forecast. I’m a resilient sort, so let’s give it another try with today’s new Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast!

Yesterday, a couple computer models showed some rain coming up into Western North Carolina. That happens sometimes and it generally doesn’t pan out. So I left it alone. Then, today, it happened! There were some scattered light rain showers around, but they didn’t amount to much. We do have sunshine headed into the evening, and a sunny day is coming up tomorrow. Here’s the outlook through Tuesday:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy, low 42.
  • Saturday-Partly to mostly sunny. High 72.
  • Saturday night-Partly to mostly cloudy. Low 48.
  • Sunday-Cloudy skies with some scattered showers and thunderstorms. High 68.
  • Monday-Partly to mostly cloudy, a few scattered showers and storms. High 74.
  • Tuesday-Mostly cloudy, some showers and storms possible. High 73.

While we get the nice weather, low pressure is getting organized out in the plains. That will feature low pressure, sending a warm front toward our area as we get about into the middle of the weekend. Before that, the sun should be out for the most part on Saturday, and most of the increase in cloud cover comes tomorrow night.

On Sunday, we’ll get a good chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms during the day. I don’t think it’ll rain all day either Sunday, Monday or Tuesday, but with a warm front close by all three days, the chance is there at any time of the day. It’ll be closest on Sunday, so expect more showers and storms finishing off the weekend.

Thanks to that warm front, temperatures will get warmer. We’re supposed to be in the upper 70s for highs this time of year, and we’ll be within five degrees of that the first part of next week. As it stands right now, warmer weather returns later next week, with chances of rain–albeit small–each day.

The weekend forecast is complete! I hope you can get out there and enjoy it!
