Storm Team 11 Forecast:
Temperature readings this morning are very mild in the upper 60s to low 50s in the Tri-Cities. Today is going to be another warm day with highs in the mid to upper 70s. There is a 40% chance for scattered showers today with a few isolated thunderstorms possible.
Tonight we will hold onto a 40% chance for scattered showers/storms with our rain chance diminishing as the night goes on. Tonight’s low is 58 degrees.
Tomorrow is the day we are monitoring the risk for severe weather. There is an 80% rain chance tomorrow and our entire area is still under an Enhanced risk for severe weather tomorrow. This is a level 3 out of 5 risk. Damaging winds, large sized hail (quarter to half dollar size) and even an isolated tornado will be possible tomorrow. We will also likely see locally heavy downpours and frequent cloud-to-ground lightning. As of right now it looks like there will be two rounds of storms tomorrow. The first round of storms will likely be in the morning hours between about 8 AM and 12 PM. The second round of storms looks more likely from 5 PM to 10 PM. Both rounds of storms have the potential to be strong to severe, but the second round of storms will likely be stronger. This is due to the fact that we will be warmer in the afternoon, which creates an unstable atmosphere.
Please stay up-to-date on the forecast this weekend. Make sure you have a way to get severe weather alerts. Download our WJHL Weather App and follow us on-air and online for the latest details.
A few scattered showers could linger into Monday morning with even a very light wintry mix possible early over the higher elevations. Monday will be much cooler with highs in the mid 50s.
We warm back up into the mid to upper 70s for the middle to end of the week.
Have a great day!
