Weather Summary:

We are tracking a weak front in the StormTrack 5 Weather Center. The front is sliding south of the Tri-Cities and will keep the main threat for showers or thunderstorms south of the front. So we will see partly cloudy skies today.

A few evening showers are possible tonight but only as a slight chance of 20 percent.

The southern Appalachians will see a ridge of high pressure filling into the area to end the week. That means another partly cloudy day. Today and Thursday we can not rule out a stray or passing shower or thundershower but those chances are slight. That means most of you will  remain dry.

StormTrack 5 Meteorologists are tracking a front that will head for the southeast to end the week and start the weekend. A few more clouds will be noted on Friday with a 20 percent chance of showers and storms.

The front will slide in from a system moving through the Great Lakes. This will bring a 40 to 50 percent chance of showers and storms for the Saturday and Sunday.

Behind the front we expect temperatures close to normal with only a slight shower chance on Monday and partly cloudy skies on Tuesday.

Highs will be in the mid 80s to near 90 today through Tuesday. Lows will be near 60 to the mid 60s tonight through Tuesday night.

Our normal high is 83°, low 60°.
