We are tracking a weak cold front in the StormTrack 5 Weather Center. This front will sweep through the Tri-Cities overnight bringing with it some increase in clouds and perhaps a few light showers. Lows will drop into the upper 30s to lower 40s.
Don't forget to forward your clocks an hour before heading off to be tonight. Daylight saving time begins at 2:00 a.m. Sunday.
A morning shower is possible Sunday, but some afternoon sunshine is expected with seasonal temperatures in the 50s.
High pressure will build into the southeastern states Monday through Tuesday. Sunny and warm days are expected with highs in the 60s, possibly pushing 70 on Tuesday! Lows will be in the 30s and 40s.
StormTrack 5 meteorologists are tracking a stronger system to affect the southern Appalachians by midweek. Low pressure will develop over the southern Plains on Tuesday, track to the lower Mississippi Valley Wednesday morning, and across the southern Appalachians Wednesday evening. This will force a strong cold front across the Tri-Cities region on Wednesday.
Showers and possible thundershowers will likely develop very late Tuesday night into Wednesday. Colder air will be drawn into the region late Wednesday and Wednesday night. A few snow showers may develop over the higher elevations Wednesday evening, and perhaps a few snow flurries will fall on the Tri-Cities.
Breezy and cold conditions are expected behind this front on Thursday with highs only reaching the upper 30s to lower 40s. Lows Thursday night will dip into the upper teens to lower 20s.
Partly cloudy and near normal conditions will return to the region on Friday and Saturday. Right now the start to Race weekend in Bristol is looking good.
