January 17, 2018 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

January 17, 2018

We’ve had our snow, and some snow days to boot. Now, we get the cold weather over the next couple days. Warmer weather is not too far ahead, though. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Sunday!

Snow totals from yesterday generally stayed where I thought they would. Most locations received over an inch of snow and less than two, namely Pound, Kingsport, Lebanon, Blountville, Bristol, and Bluff City. There was a report of two inches of snow in Greeneville, and 3 in St. Paul. The big winner around here, of course, is Roan Mountain with 3.5 inches of snow.

These numbers are tripled when you look at central North Carolina today. To the northwest of Raleigh there have been reports of 8-10 inches of snow, with 11 reported in a location or two. So that’s the good news…we didn’t get a big snow.

With that said, we’re going to have cold weather in the near term, but warming up to above average later on. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy, frigid. Low 8.
  • Thursday-Sunny. High 38.
  • Thursday night-Mostly clear. Low 12.
  • Friday-Sunny. High 48.
  • Saturday-Mostly sunny. Highs near 50.
  • Sunday-Mostly sunny. High 58.

Our average temperature for this part of January is around 45 degrees, and we’re clearly well below that with our high of 22 today. We’re much closer to that tomorrow, and a touch over it for Friday.

This weekend looks fantastic, like car washing weather, honestly. I think I’ve featured my little red car (which I’ve named Ashley because of this story) on the blog before, and that poor automobile is a nasty mess. So this weekend I know I’ll be off to get the thing cleaned up! We’ll see temperatures getting to around 50 on Saturday and well above that for Sunday.

Our next chance of rain at this point comes in on Monday with an approaching cold front. So there’s a lot of calm weather ahead of us if you can endure the cold for the next couple days!
