Wednesday, November 8, 2017 –

Good Evening!  If you are tired of the clouds and scattered showers, hang in there, clearing skies are on the way!  It certainly was a cooler afternoon today.

Let’s talk about the rain.  We will watch an area of moisture move just south of the Tri-Cities overnight.  This will keep a chance of rain across the area tonight through early Thursday.  There is some good news, we begin to clear Thursday afternoon with dry weather on tap for Friday and Saturday.

We maintain clouds tonight and Thursday, but you can see the clearing trend right around the corner.

8 PM Tonight – Cloudy and cool with scattered showers.

11 PM Tonight -The main bulk of rain stays just to our south, but we can’t rule out some scattered showers.

6 AM Thursday – Mostly cloudy skies prevail with scattered showers possible especially across northeast Tennessee.

Noon Thursday – We start to see a clearing trend across Kentucky and southwest Virginia.

4 PM Thursday – Finally – We see some afternoon sunshine!

We dry out late Thursday through Saturday.

Let’s talk about a shot of cold air!  A cold front moves across the region late Thursday which will bring the coldest air of the season so far.

8 PM Thursday – Clear skies with colder temperatures.

6 AM Friday – High pressure will build across the area which will bring sunshine to the region.

It will be pleasant but cold Friday morning with sunny skies and dry conditions.  Temperatures will be in the upper 20’s and low to middle 30’s.

Friday afternoon will be sunny with high temperatures only in the 40’s!

8 AM Saturday – Clear skies will allow for very cold temperatures.  Lows will be in the low to middle 20’s.

Take a look at the forecast low for Saturday morning. 25 degrees in the Tri-Cities with temperatures dipping to 18 to 20 across some of the higher elevations.

6 PM Saturday – We stay with clear skies and cold temperatures.
