June 2, 2024, Tri-Cities Weather Blog Forecast

Sunday, June 2

Welcome to summer! Yes, astronomically it’s late Spring still, but we weather folk like to have things organized in a way that make sense with the calendar, so we divide the seasons roughly into three month periods where all four seasons should be. So therefore, summer! And it’ll feel like summer around here for one day this week, but we’re still going to get a good chance of rain and storms as we go through the week as well. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Clouds and some morning fog. Low near 60.
  • Monday-Partly cloudy, with a few showers and storms, not an all-day rain. High 83.
    • Monday night-Partly cloudy skies. Lows again near 60.
  • Tuesday-Sunny and very warm, with a small chance of an afternoon shower or thunderstorm. High 87.
  • Wednesday-Increasing clouds, with scattered showers and thunderstorms from time to time. High 83.
  • Thursday-Partly cloudy, some scattered showers and storms remain. High 82.
  • Friday-Sunny skies with a small chance of rain or a thunderstorm late. High 78.

Whether you consider summer astronomically or meteorologically doesn’t really matter too much, really. The difference is only a few weeks, as the full start of summer happens later this month. However, we’re still close enough to Spring to get our rain and thunderstorm chances this week, with a decent chance on Monday, but especially Wednesday and probably Thursday.

By then, a front gets close (it’s hard to call a front a “cold” front until September or so) and will bring better chances of rain toward the middle of the week after a summery Tuesday. There is evidence to believe that strong storms are possible Wednesday, so I’ll keep an eye out for that.

On average, our temperatures top out in the low 80s and drop to the upper 50s on a daily basis this time of year. We will be slightly above those numbers at times this week, with the biggest difference Tuesday. By Friday, we may not see 80 degrees at all, and there’s evidence in the extended forecast that may support us not hitting 70 on Saturday. That probably is computer models thinking a cold front will get all the way through here, and we’re starting to get to the time of year where that doesn’t happen much for a while.

So, for the week ahead, be on the lookout for storms pretty much any day this week; afternoons Monday, Tuesday and Friday, and pretty much any time Wednesday and Thursday. We’ll see what Saturday brings as we go through the coming days.

Thanks for checking here for the forecast, have a great week!
