A PLEASANT WEEK OF WEATHER
WARM DAYS AND COOL NIGHTS AHEAD
GOOD CHANCE OF SHOWERS FRIDAY
A BRIEF COOL DOWN ON SATURDAY
Tonight: Mostly clear. Patchy dense fog late. Lows 45-51. Light wind.
Wednesday: Partly cloudy and warm. Highs 74-80. North wind 10 mph or less.
Wednesday Night: Clear to partly cloudy. Lows 47-53. Light wind.
Thursday: Partly sunny with a stray afternoon shower possible. Highs 74-80. Southwest wind 10 mph or less.
As the slow-moving low pressure area (responsible for the flooding in South Carolina) continues to shift eastward, a large dome of high pressure will dominate the southern Appalachian weather. That means plenty of sunshine is in the forecast for the coming days. High temperatures will be warmer than average through Thursday.
A weak front will approach Wednesday bringing a few more clouds. There a slight chance of a shower Thursday, mainly in the mountains.
By Friday, a cold front moves into the region from the northwest. Showers are likely to develop Friday and may linger into Saturday morning. Right now much of the weekend is looking dry, but cooler.
Another large area of high pressure will move into the Tri-Cities region next week. This will bring another bout of sunny and warm weather through the middle of next week.
Temperature Outlook: Highs in the 70s to around 80 through Friday, 60s to low 70s by the weekend. Lows in the upper 40s to lower 50s through Wednesday night, mid to upper 50s Thursday night, near 50 Friday night, and 40s Saturday night.
Our average high is 72°, low 47°.
