March 12, 2017 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

March 12, 2017

Well, we got away with one this weekend, as the storm system stayed far enough south to keep snow away. A different type of system is coming in for tomorrow, and snow is part of the forecast in the coming days. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Friday!

Off to the outlook we go:

  • Tonight-Becoming mostly cloudy, a few morning snow flurries are possible. Low 25.
  • Monday-Mostly cloudy, rain likely in the afternoon. High 48.
  • Monday night-Rain showers change to snow showers. Low 33.
  • Tuesday-Mostly cloudy, morning snow showers tapering off to flurries. High 43.
  • Wednesday-Partly cloudy. High 32.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny. High near 40.
  • Friday-Partly to mostly sunny. High 52.

The difference between the storm system this week from this weekend is that this one will be moving in from the west. The last one was south of us and ended up staying that way. This one will move through our area as it goes from west to east.

That said, expect most of this event to be rain, starting tomorrow afternoon and into much of Monday night. Clouds tend to keep heat in, so there’s a chance that we might get into Tuesday without any snow. Obviously, the longer the temperature is above freezing, the less snow we’ll see.

Snow will happen to at least some degree for everyone, though. Once the cold front moves through, northwest winds will kick in and bring in the cold weather. Once the snow does get started, we might see an inch or two before we see things end on Tuesday.

As for Tuesday, the high temperature is likely to be early in the day. The majority of Tuesday will likely be spent in the 30’s, which will help us see at least flurries during the day.

That  cold front will help bring nasty weather to the Northeast, in combination with the system we were watching for possible snow this past weekend. The farther it gets from us, the more likely we’ll be rain or snow free.

High pressure builds in behind that front for a new cold snap. We might be lucky to hit the freezing mark on Wednesday, and we’ll slowly get back into the 50’s by Friday. Overnight lows at least Wednesday morning and Thursday morning will be in the teens as high pressure moves toward us.

Our next chance of rain or snow looks to be Friday night and into Saturday, after dry weather for the majority of this week.

I’ll have updates each afternoon this week, with at least a quick outlook each day. Have a great week!
