Weather Summary:

We are tracking a weak cold front in the StormTrack 5 Weather Center. The front is moving south from the Ohio Valley and will bring some clouds to the region. A stray shower is possible through the evening, but most will stay dry.

Skies will be partly cloudy overnight with areas of dense fog developing.

StormTrack 5 meteorologists are tracking a high pressure area to our north which will keep the Tri-Cities partly to mostly sunny through the weekend. A stray shower is possible Friday, especially in the mountains thanks to a southeasterly wind. Highs will only be in the mid to upper 60s around Boone while the Tri-Cities will be in the upper 70s, all thanks to that southeasterly flow.

Saturday is looking great with a good deal of sunshine, comfortable temperatures, and low humidity!

Another cold front will head toward the Southeast from the Midwest on Sunday. This will bring increasing clouds and a chance of showers late Sunday afternoon through early Monday morning.

More pleasant fall-like weather is expected for much of next week. Skies are looking partly to mostly sunny, temperatures will be close to normal (or slightly below), and humidity levels will be low!

Highs will be in the upper 70s to near 80 through Monday with lower to mid 70s Tuesday through Thursday. Lows will be in the low to mid 50s tonight through Sunday night, and in the upper 40s to lower 50s Monday through Wednesday night.

This will be the last weekend of summer. Autumn will officially arrive at 10:29 Monday night.

Our normal high is 79°, low 54°.
