Record low territory tonight! Sunny and mild Wednesday- Storms for the weekend!

Good afternoon.  It certainly has been a beautiful afternoon with high temperatures in the 70’s today.  Here is the official data for the Tri-Cities Airport.

Take a look at this satellite imagery from NOAA.  You see the clouds that quickly moved across the area.  Now we have clear skies and chilly temperatures on tap for tonight.

Here is a closer look at our part of the country with this visible imagery from GOES 16 provided by College of DuPage.

We will watch the Gulf Coast as moisture lingers there.  Some of that moisture heads north for the weekend.  Take a look at Florida this afternoon.  You can see the storms firing up across the state.  GOES 16 satellite imagery from College of DuPage.

Enjoy the mild air on Wednesday.  The heat, humidity and scattered storms return just in time for the weekend.

Take a look at the Storm Team 11 Forecast Maps for tonight.  Skies will be clear with temperatures near 52 degrees.  The record low for Wednesday morning is 50 set in 1970.

8 PM Tonight – Clear skies and mild temperatures.

7 AM Wednesday – Beautiful!  Sunny and cool.

4 Pm Wednesday – Sunny and mild with temperature sin the upper 70’s and low 80’s.

The weather pattern begin to change Thursday into the weekend.  High pressure will move off the east coast and this will bring a return flow of air from the south and the southwest.  This will bring moisture back to the area as early as Thursday.  Low pressure will also bring a better chance of showers and storms into the weekend.

6 AM Thursday – We start the day with partly cloudy skies and an increase in humidity.

8 PM Thursday – Scattered showers and storms will be possible late in the day.

We could see a few thunderstorms Thursday afternoon and evening.

8 AM Friday – Variable cloudy skies with a chance of scattered showers and storms.  Watch the low pressure to our southwest.

5 PM Friday – Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible.  Low pressure moves in from the southwest.

11 Pm Friday – Look for showers and thunderstorms across the area thanks to low pressure.

7 AM Saturday – We keep the chance of showers and storms in the region due in part to low pressure and an approaching cold front.

We stay warm this weekend with an increase chance of showers and thunderstorms.  Here is a look at the Storm Team 11 7-Day Forecast.

Have a great night!
