Weather Summary:

We are tracking cold front in the StormTrack 5 Weather Center. This front will drift toward the Tri-Cities today and bring a pretty good shot at showers and thunderstorms ahead of the front. Today's chances are at 50 percent.

Tonight we have a 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. The front will slowly drift into the southern Appalachians during the overnight.

A storm or two could develop and you should be on the alert for gusty winds, lightning strikes and downpours with any storm that developed.

StormTrack 5 Meteorologists are tracking a high off the Atlantic coast and nudging back into the region. This will keep the flow of warm and humid air from the Gulf of Mexico into our area Wednesday through Friday. The chances are only at 30 percent and mainly the afternoon and evening summer time showers and storms.

A cold front will settle south from a storm system in the Great Lakes over the weekend. That will cross our area with a better chance of showers and storms. Saturday and Sunday will be 40 percent on the chances with a strong storm or two possible. Any of these storms could again create the dangers of downpours, lightning strikes and gusty winds.

Monday will be a little coolers and drier behind the front with partly cloudy skies.

Highs will be in the mid to upper 80s today through Sunday and low 80s on Monday. Lows will be in the low to mid 60s tonight through Monday night.
