December 27, 2017 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

December 27, 2017

Do you remember those snow chances for New Year’s Eve that I talked about in yesterday’s blog? Well, that’s pretty much gone, either moved farther north of us or just later next week. Cold weather is the big story in this Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast through the end of the year!

In parts of Southwest Virginia near the West Virginia border, we’ve seen very cold temperatures and snow during the day. Tazewell, Virginia, reported some light snow falling late this afternoon and 20 degrees. Most of us are at least in the upper 20’s just before sunset, with Knoxville locations near the upper 30’s. It gets frigid for all of us tonight. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy. Low 11.
  • Thursday-Partly sunny. High 38.
  • Thursday night-Increasing clouds and a few flurries. Low 22.
  • Friday-Partly cloudy. Highs near 40.
  • Saturday-Partly to mostly cloudy. High 38.
  • Sunday-Cloudy with some flurries, especially late. High 33.

The usual stuff applies for really cold weather tonight. Bring in pets that are outdoors, warm the car up before you start driving it (remote starters are wonderful…I need one!), and make sure everyone has enough heat to get through it. Overnight lows will be 15 degrees below average tomorrow morning, making it feel more like late January in these parts.

It never gets too cold for too long here, so temperatures will moderate a little through Friday. By the weekend, a new shot of colder air returns, with snow flurries possible through Sunday.

Light snow may change to heavier snow early in 2018, as the first week of the New Year will be cold to be sure. I’ll keep an eye on things and have a forecast for you as many times as possible between now and then.

For now, just stay warm. That’s the main thing with these colder than average temperatures.
