Weather Summary:

We are tracking a cold front in the StormTrack 5 Weather Center. This front is heading for the Tri-Cities today with showers and  possibly some thunderstorms. The front should be moving east of the region during the midday hours and taking the rain with it. By late this afternoon, the skies should be clearing.

Tonight will be clear and cool as an area of high pressure starts to nudge into the southern Appalachians behind the departing front.

The high will be the main weather feature for the weekend and provide a great opportunity to enjoy all of the outdoor plans and events for this weekend. We expect tons of sun and very warm temperatures.

StormTrack 5 meteorologists are tracking a more stormy pattern possibly gearing up for next week. You can always get the latest forecast and weather information on News 5 WCYB, wcyb.com and on the StormTrack 5 weather app. Our meteorologists are examining the details of this system and will alert you to any potential of severe weather, should that threat develop.

The front that brought Friday's rain will stall to our south and head back north as a warm front on Sunday. It will increase our temperatures and moisture supply from the Gulf of Mexico. But it does appear that the high will keep us fry and nice through Sunday.

The warm front heads north and we will see a 40 percent chance of rain on Monday afternoon. A storm system will also be slowly trying to head east from the southern and central Plains states. The low will spend most of next week out of the steering currents of the atmosphere. This means it will only meander from the Plains through the Mississippi River Valley and into the Ohio Valley. This will of course keep a good chance of rain for us as we go through mid-week.

Our chances for severe weather appears to be lower than west and middle Tennessee and south-central Kentucky. We will see a 70 percent chance for rain and possibly thunderstorms on Tuesday. If we were to experience strong to severe storms, the most likely time will be late Tuesday and Tuesday night.

Right now, we are tracking the possibility of quite a bit of rain for the region. It appears this may be the bigger threat than storms.

Showers are likely with a 60 percent chance on Wednesday with a 30 percent chance on Thursday.

Highs will be in the low 70s today and upper 70s to low 80s Saturday through Monday with upper 60s to low 70s Tuesday through Thursday. Lows will be in the low to mid 40s tonight and Saturday night. Expect low to mid 50s Sunday night through Tuesday night and mid 40s Wednesday night and Thursday night.

Our normal high is 71°, low 43°.
