January 26, 2016 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

January 26, 2017

“Crank that wind down a little bit, would ya?” I’ve gotten that request a couple times today, but at least the sun is out! Those gusty winds are bringing us back down to typical January weather, and some snow is in the forecast! Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Monday!

Temperatures are already in the mid 30’s in parts of the area, mainly higher elevations. We’ve dropped through the 40’s today as anticipated, but the clouds have stayed away. This is a good thing! But if clouds stay away until tonight, it might get quite chilly. Flurries are coming starting late tonight. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Increasing clouds, with flurries developing late. Low 29.
  • Friday-Mostly cloudy, with scattered flurries, maybe a light snow shower. High 38.
  • Friday night-More clouds, and a few more flurries as well. Low 27.
  • Saturday-Partly to mostly cloudy. Highs near 40.
  • Sunday-Mostly cloudy, snow flurries return late. High 37. Snow showers possible Sunday night.
  • Monday-Partly to mostly cloudy, snow showers possible. High 34.

As you can see, our wake-up call is coming. After temperatures at times closing in on 70, we’re going to be seeing numbers struggling to hit 40, if at all, through Monday.

Our first run of light snow showers or flurries will come thanks to a disturbance northwest of us, in Michigan and Wisconsin. This is one of those northwest flow snow events, but not much will come out of that first round. Tonight through tomorrow night we’ll have heavy clouds with flurries from time to time, maybe full blown snow showers at some point. I’m not expecting much accumulation through Saturday.

We do get a break, and maybe a little sunshine on Saturday, before a cold front comes in from our northwest by Sunday. That will bring snow flurries during the day, with snow showers overnight. That could potentially bring an inch or so of snow in the Tri-Cities through early Monday, with a couple inches possible in the mountains.

After that, Monday is a bit up in the air. We might see some sun, and snow showers are possible, too. Computers aren’t real sure about it, so I’m going to put everything on the board and deal with details tomorrow.

That’s it for today’s forecast! Thanks for looking around here on the blog while you’re here. I have stories in the Weather Info section, there are stories about weather songs in the Kids section, and as always you can check out the latest radar and learn more about me! Finally, there’s a page for what I know about severe weather warning alerts for parts of our area, who runs sirens for what and what each location suggests you do to keep up with weather alerts. There isn’t much there, and hopefully in the future I can add to that. Have a great Friday!
