PATCHY FOG TUESDAY AM

SUNNY, WARMER, AND DRY TODAY

SUMMER RETURNS - HIGHS IN THE 80S THIS WEEK

DAILY CHANCE OF POP-UP T-SHOWERS ALSO RETURNS

Today: Mostly sunny and warmer. Highs 75-82. Light west wind.

Tonight: Mostly clear. Comfortable. Lows 48-55. Light wind.

Wednesday: Partly cloudy and warm. A little more humid. Isolated afternoon mountain shower. Highs 80-86. West wind 10 mph or less.

WEATHER SUMMARY:

This morning will offer the Tri-Cities mostly clear and seasonably cool conditions.  Be alert for the possibility of some patchy dense fog early.

As high pressure continues to build over the eastern half of the US, we'll continue to work our way up in the temperature department. 

In fact, highs by mid-to-late week will be in the low to mid 80s - possibly upper 80s in a few spots by Friday and Saturday.  Of course with that warm air and increasing humidity levels comes that daily chance of a shower or thunderstorm.  Welcome to late May in the southeast, right?!

Temperature Outlook: Highs in the upper 70s to near 80 Tuesday, low to mid 80s Wednesday and Thursday, possibly the mid to upper 80s Thursday through Sunday.  Lows in the 50s tonight, then upper 50s to lower 60s Wednesday through Saturday nights.

Our average high is 78°, low 53°.
