January 24, 2017 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

January 24, 2017

Clouds have kept temperatures down below forecast today, which is not completely surprising. We might see some clouds depart overnight, but they’ll be right back around here ahead of a cold front tomorrow. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through the weekend!

With those clouds, we’re all pretty much close together temperature wise, from close to 40 in the North Carolina mountains to just above 50 where the sun is starting to come out as close to us as Knoxville. Some clearing occurs tonight, which will allow dropping of temperatures to near freezing tonight. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly to mostly cloudy. Low 33.
  • Wednesday-Increasing clouds, a small chance of rain late in the day. High 64.
  • Wednesday night-Cloudy with rain showers likely. Low 44.
  • Thursday-Mostly cloudy, with some scattered showers. High 50 (temperatures drop during the day).
  • Friday-Mostly cloudy, light snow showers possible. High 37.
  • Saturday-Cloudy with morning snow flurries. High 38.
  • Sunday-Increasing clouds, scattered rain or snow showers. High 39.

It’s been rather amazing weather wise recently, although I’m sure the really low pressure hasn’t been amazing for lots of folks with aches and pains. As the low pressure moved through southeast Tennessee and western North Carolina, pressure readings were close to what you’d see in a Category 1 hurricane! So if you’ve felt the pain (and my physical therapist says a lot of people have), then that is a large reason why.

Kansas is the current home of low pressure, but that one is not nearly as intense as its predecessor. A cold front extends south from it, and a warm front is east of that. That system will move through here tomorrow night, and with that will end our warm weather experience from recent days.

We should stay dry tonight and most of tomorrow, except west of the Tri-Cities there may be some showers late. Rain moves in for everyone Wednesday night and Thursday, before some of it changes over to snow. Light snow showers or flurries will be likely through Saturday morning.

Accumulations look light right now, and with the temperatures in the 60’s so much recently, the ground is too warm for a little bit of snow to develop into too much. So I’m not expecting more than an inch of snow in the Tri-Cities all the way through the weekend. That might change with future forecasts, though.

There will be a break in precipitation before the second cold front moves through on Sunday, so we might get a decent day out of Saturday, although it will be chilly. We might not get up above 40 from Thursday night all the way through Sunday.

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