January 4, 2017 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

January 4, 2017

We have enjoyed nice weather recently, with temperatures above normal for the most part, with rain showers. That comes to an end soon, as snow is in the forecast, possibly as early as Thursday afternoon. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Sunday!

This afternoon, temperatures ranged from the upper 30’s in the mountains to the mid 40’s in the Tri-Cities and toward Knoxville, cooler than our temperatures at around midnight. We’ll continue a steady fall in temperatures tonight and we’re headed for a cold weekend. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Increasing clouds. Low 22.
  • Thursday-Becoming mostly cloudy. Snow showers possible by afternoon north of the Tri-Cities. High 38.
  • Thursday night-Snow showers likely. Low 28.
  • Friday-Mostly cloudy with some scattered snow showers. High 32.
  • Saturday-Morning snow showers or flurries, becoming partly cloudy late. High 28.
  • Sunday-Partly to mostly sunny and cold. High 26.

We’re under a Winter Weather Advisory from the National Weather Service, starting tomorrow evening at seven to Friday morning at seven. All that means is that for those twelve hours, we’ll likely see light snow. That’s all a Winter Weather Advisory means, that we’re going to get a little bit of snow.

Look for said snow to start tomorrow afternoon in Southwest Virginia, and it will become more likely area wide during the evening. Snow showers will continue on a scattered basis through most of Friday, and perhaps into early Saturday.

By the time it’s all said and done, expect an inch or two of snow in the Tri-Cities at most through Saturday morning. Folks in the mountains may see a few more inches, with Southwest Virginia likely to get around 1-3″, and the higher mountaintops around 4 inches of snow.

It ends Saturday, with skies clearing into Sunday. Expect cold weather this weekend, with lows from 7 to 11 degrees both Saturday and Sunday nights, and highs in the mid to upper 20’s.

Winter weather is almost here, but what may be a big deal is the cold that comes after it! I’ll keep an eye on the forecast, with a new update tomorrow. Have a great Thursday!
