A PLEASANT NIGHT AHEAD
SUMMER RETURNS - HIGHS IN THE 80S THIS WEEK
DAILY CHANCE OF POP-UP T-SHOWERS ALSO RETURNS
Tonight: Mostly clear. Comfortable. Lows 48-55. Light wind.
Wednesday: Partly sunny and warm. A pop-up shower in spots. Highs 80-85. Southwest wind 10 mph or less.
Wednesday Night: Partly cloudy. Lows 55-62. Light wind.
Thursday: Partly sunny. A 30% chance of showers and thunderstorms. Highs 80-87. Southwest wind 5-10 mph.
After a warmer afternoon, a pleasant night is on tap for the Tri-Cities. Lows will drop into the upper 40s to middle 50s.
As high pressure continues to build over the eastern half of the US, we'll continue to work our way up in the temperature department.
In fact, highs will be well into the 80s for much of this week. Of course with that warm air and increasing humidity levels comes that daily chance of a shower or thunderstorm.
We will be tracking an area of low pressure that may develop off the southeast coast this weekend. What impacts, if any, this system may have on our region aren't known yet, but rain chances may increase by Memorial Day. Check back for updates.
Temperature Outlook: Highs low to mid 80s Wednesday and Thursday, and mid to upper 80s Thursday through Sunday. Lows in the 50s through Wednesday night, then upper 50s to lower 60s through Saturday night.
Our average high is 78°, low 53°.
