January 29, 2017 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

January 29, 2017

It’s snowing! There have been a lot of snowflakes flying around today, but they haven’t amounted to all that much. Another batch of light snow is coming tonight, then we’re done with that for a few days and the warmup begins. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast, produced right here in our studios, for this week!

There’s some snow on the ground, with reports of an inch of snow near Honaker, Cleveland (in Russell County), Virginia, and near Johnson City. Mountain City chimes in with a 2.5 inch snow report southwest of town as of 8 PM. More is on the way, but I’ll get to the specifics on that in a bit. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Scattered snow showers. Low 25. Up to 1″ accumulation added on for the Tri-Cities, 2-4″ possible in the mountains.
  • Monday-Snow showers taper off to snow flurries. Clearing possible, wind likely. High 37.
  • Monday night-Partly to mostly cloudy. Low 27.
  • Tuesday-Partly cloudy. High 56.
  • Wednesday-Partly to mostly cloudy with a small chance of rain. High 54.
  • Thursday-Partly to mostly cloudy. Highs near 50.
  • Friday-Mostly cloudy, slight chance of rain. High 44.

It looks like two cold fronts are on their way through this week, one late Tuesday night, the other Friday morning. Both don’t appear to have much precipitation with them, so the bulk of that will be happening over the next 12-18 hours or so.

With that in mind, and considering snow totals so far, I’m thinking we may see up to 2 inches of snow total through tomorrow afternoon with this snow event in the greater Tri-Cities area. With higher elevation will bring more snow…so expect up to 4 inches of snow in mountainous locations through the end of tomorrow.

After that, we’ll clear out for a little while. One front might bring a rain shower or two Wednesday, and the next might bring the same Friday. We’ll have temperatures warming up nicely this week, getting back into the 50’s on Tuesday, with highs in that range through Thursday. We’ll cool off toward average temperatures again on Friday.

I’ll have updates each afternoon through Friday. Have a great week!
