March 10, 2017 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

March 10, 2017

Winds are gusty, but it’s sunny and dry around the area this afternoon. Clouds and rain, eventually changing to snow, are all in the forecast through tomorrow night, though. Here’s the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for that and all the way through what may be another snow event on Tuesday.

It’s a cool day out, with all that wind around. Temperatures in the southwest Virginia mountains are in the upper 30’s, with everyone else in the Tri-Cities in the 40’s. Knoxville areas are chiming in at around the low 50’s this afternoon, but changes are coming our way soon for sure. Here’s the outlook;

  • Tonight-Increasing clouds. Low 24.
  • Saturday-Mostly cloudy with rain showers, then changing to snow showers late. High 40.
  • Saturday night-Snow showers likely. 1-3″ possible in the Tri-Cities, more in the mountains. Low 27.
  • Sunday-Morning snow showers, becoming partly cloudy late. High 42.
  • Monday-Mostly cloudy, a few rain showers possible late. High 45.
  • Tuesday-Cloudy with rain showers changing to snow showers. High 43.

We haven’t seen much of winter, but it’s going to make at least a couple good runs at it in the coming days. Nothing of note will happen tonight through early Saturday, though.

During the day Saturday, rain showers will start developing. Temperatures will start cooling late in the afternoon, causing rain to mix with and change to snow. That snow will continue through early Sunday morning.

As mentioned in the outlook, it looks right now like the Tri-Cities should see around 1-3 inches of snow through Sunday morning. All of our warm weather is keeping the ground rather warm as well, so a lot of the initial snow will melt once it hits the ground. Still, it looks like higher amounts will be possible south of the Tri-Cities area and near the mountains. Southwest Virginia might not see as much with this as it looks right now. I’ll post a Saturday update as soon as I can get to it tomorrow.

After that, we get a break for Sunday afternoon through much of Monday. Rain returns Monday night, then will change to snow Monday. More chances for snow arrive on Tuesday as we’ll cool down for things to change over. It’s too early to tell with that system, and I’ll definitely have an answer Sunday, but two inches of snow is not out of the question at all for Tuesday night through early Wednesday.

As for the rest of the week, we’ll turn cold, with highs in the 30’s and lows in the teens for a couple days, but we’ll definitely warm back up toward next weekend.

It’s still technically winter for a couple more weeks, as Spring doesn’t start until the 20th. Even then, cold snaps are possible all the way into April before we get warm and stay that way.

I’ll have a special weekend forecast tomorrow, so keep an eye out for that. Have a great weekend!
