We are tracking record cool temperatures in the StormTrack 5 Weather Center. The record low was tied Tuesday morning as the temperature dropped to 55°. The record low Wednesday morning is 56° set in 2013, and the record low Thursday morning is 55° set in 1993. Lows the next couple of days are expected to drop into the lower to middle 50s across the Tri-Cities.
An area of high pressure will provide partly cloudy and pleasant weather through Thursday. While a stray shower during the afternoon/evening cannot be ruled out, most of the region will likely remain dry. Highs Wednesday and Thursday will reach the 70s to lower 80s.
StormTrack 5 meteorologists are tracking a little warmer and more humid conditions for later this week and into the weekend. As weak atmospheric disturbances track across the area, a few scattered showers and thundershowers will be possible Friday through Sunday. The best chance of rain will be during the afternoon and evening.
Mainly dry and pleasant weather returns to the forecast Monday and Tuesday. Temperatures will be near seasonal levels this weekend through early next week. Highs will be in the lower to middle 80s, and lows will drop into the upper 50s to lower 60s.
