January 5, 2016 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

January 5, 2017

Snow has started for some, but not quite yet for others as we start into the evening hours. It looks like we’ll see a good bit of snow, but not too much as we go toward the weekend. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast through Monday!

Off to the outlook we go, as snow is underway in our area:

  • Tonight-Scattered snow showers, up to 1-2 inches possible in the Tri-Cities, more in the mountains. Low 26.
  • Friday-Mostly cloudy, more scattered snow showers. High 32.
  • Friday night-Snow showers likely. Lows near 20.
  • Saturday-Morning snow flurries, partly cloudy by afternoon. High 26 (overnight lows between 5 and 7!)
  • Sunday-Partly sunny. High 26 (overnight lows between 7 and 9!)
  • Monday-Mostly sunny. High 35.

Snow showers have already arrived, but the radar shows that some snow is in the Tri-Cities. Here in Blountville at our new studios, there’s been little snow, if any. The air is dry near the ground, and that is making the snow a few thousand feet above our heads to not make it to ground level. So radar showing snow showers is not entirely accurate since that radar beam is well above 5,000 feet off the ground once it gets here.

That said, we’ll see moisture returning and snow reaching the ground for all of us tonight. It looks like 1-2 inches of snow might be possible for the Tri-Cities, with higher amounts with elevation increase.

We’ll see some off-and-on snow showers on Friday and Friday night that might add another inch or two to our totals. By Saturday afternoon, snow will be gone, and we might even see a peek of sunshine.

Overall, by the end of things on Saturday morning, we should see around 1-3 inches in the Tri-Cities, and 2-5 inches are possible in the higher elevations, with folks in Southwest Virginia somewhere in between. It may be enough to cause some travel issues early this weekend, though.

We’ll dry out and frigid temperatures will highlight the weekend’s weather, with overnight lows in the single digits going into both Sunday and Monday mornings.

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