We are tracking a dome of high pressure in the StormTrack 5 Weather Center. The high is bringing sunshine and warm temperatures today for the Tri-Cities.
Tonight will be cool with clear skies through the southern Appalachians.
The high will keep the sunny skies around through Thursday. Temperatures will be 5° to 8° above normal with a southwesterly flow bringing warm and moist air back into the region.
StormTrack 5 Meteorologists are tracking a strong storm storm system that will swing into the upper Mid-west and Great Lakes on Friday. A cold front will trail from the system and head for our area with showers and possibly an isolated thunderstorm on Friday. The chances are at 60 percent.
The thunderstorms don't seem as likely to be severe but we can't rule out a strong isolated storm ahead of the front.
The front is moving at a pretty good clip. We will return to mostly sunny skies for the weekend. The high filling in behind the front will bring drier and cooler temperatures for the weekend.
We will warm up slightly on Monday. Mostly sunny skies will be the order of the day on Monday. We are tracking a new system that may bring a few clouds late on Monday.
Highs will be in the low 80s today through Thursday and mid 70s on Friday with upper 60s to low 70s Saturday through Monday. Lows will be in the low 50s tonight and Wednesday night. We expect upper 50s Thursday night and mid 40s to near 50 Friday night through Monday night.
