Weather Summary:

We are tracking a stalled front in the StormTrack 5 Weather Center. This front is meandering around the Tri-Cities. The front, along with today's heat and humidity, will help produce a few scattered showers and thunderstorms through the evening. If you have outdoor plans this evening, have the rain gear handy just in case. Localized downpours are possible.

The rain chances will diminish tonight and leave us with partly to mostly cloudy conditions. Areas of fog are expected late.

Saturday will be partly cloudy with a slight chance of an afternoon shower. The high pressure area over the southern Appalachians will be easing to the east. This will lift a warm front from our area to the north. A warm and moist flow from the Gulf of Mexico will increase our humidity levels.

StormTrack 5 meteorologists are tracking a weather disturbance heading into the southern Appalachians for Sunday. This will bring a 60 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms scattered across the region. I wouldn't cancel any outdoor plans, just keep and eye to the sky and radar.

The weather system will move through and give Labor Day and Tuesday partly cloudy skies with a 30 to 40 percent chance of showers or thunderstorms. These will be mainly in the afternoon and evening.

Another weather disturbance will move across the area with a front and increase the clouds and bring a 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms by Wednesday. As this front departs, expect partly to mostly sunny skies with an isolated shower or thunderstorm Thursday.

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

You can get the latest forecast, radar, and severe weather alerts on News 5, WCYB.com, and on the StormTrack 5 weather app.

Our normal high is 84°, low 61°.
