STORM TEAM 11
After a chilly start, full sunshine is warming conditions quickly with dry air in place. High temperatures will range from the low to mid 80’s in the Tri-Cities, and mid 70’s in the mountains.
A cold front increases our chance for rain Thursday. Latest models continue to trend towards a higher rain threat, with scattered showers possible during the day. This is our best chance for widespread that we have seen in a while.
Conditions dry out Friday, while moisture returns Saturday with a chance for a few scattered showers and storms mainly over the mountains. More importantly, temperatures will be on the rise this weekend, with more summer heat along with near record high temperatures. The rain threat will remain minimal, while the heat and humidity intensifies.
Despite the increase in the rain threat Thursday, drought conditions are likely to worsen in the next few weeks as warm and dry weather will likely persist into early October.
