Weather Summary:

We are tracking pleasant late summer weather in the StormTrack 5 Weather Center.

Tonight will be partly cloudy.  Lows will drop into the upper 40s to lower 50s.  Be alert to the dangers of some dense fog in spots overnight...especially near area waterways.

StormTrack 5 Meteorologists are tracking an area of high pressure stretching from the Ohio Valley into southern Canada. This will be the dominant weather feature for the Tri-Cities through the weekend.

A mix of clouds and sunshine is expected the next few days with daytime highs reaching the 70s...possibly low 80s for Saturday and Sunday.  Nights will be seasonably cool with lows dropping into the upper 40s to middle 50s.

The weather should be ideal for the Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion this weekend.

A cold front will head for the region Sunday night into Monday.  This weather system will bring our next chance of showers....but it appears the rain will hold off until after dark Sunday.

Dry and pleasant fall weather will return to the Tri-Cities Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.

Autumn's official arrival is 10:29 Monday night.

You can always get the latest forecast and weather information on News 5 WCYB, wcyb.com and on the StormTrack 5 weather app.

Our normal high is 79°, low 55°.
