Weather Summary:

We are tracking a southern low in the StormTrack 5 Weather Center. The low will develop today and move east along the Gulf coast. Showers with spread north through the southern Appalachians. The main rain system will should remain south of our area. Otherwise, we expect partly sunny skies with clouds increasing as we head through the afternoon.

Tonight is the better chances of seeing any showers for the Tri-Cities. I still think these will be scattered or even isolated at best. It appears the better chances are south and east again.

StormTrack 5 meteorologists are tracking a sun-sational Easter weekend. With plenty of sun for both days, the temperatures will warm to slightly above normal. The exception will be the coolness in the air for those early Easter sunrise services. You may need a jacket or even coat to be comfortable outside.

Monday should start out nice but clouds will be increasing with a late day chance of rain. The better chances will be on Monday night with a 30 percent chance and 50 percent on Tuesday. We can't rule out an isolated thundershower but those chances are very slim at best.

Wednesday and Thursday will see another high settling into the region with mostly sunny skies and continued pleasant temperatures. Behind the weak front Tuesday, we are not expecting a cool down this time.

Highs will be in the mid 60s today and low to mid 70s Saturday through Thursday. Lows will be in the low to mid 40s tonight through Sunday night and mid to upper 40s Monday night through Thursday night.
