January 21, 2018 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

January 21, 2018

We’ve reached an interesting anniversary today! We think it’s been cold with temperatures in the single digits, but today is a reminder of the coldest day since records have been kept here! Thankfully, our weather this week will have nothing to do with extreme cold. Here is the forecast for this week!

  • Tonight-Partly to mostly cloudy, with morning fog possible. Low 38.
  • Monday-Mostly cloudy and windy, rain moves in late. High 64.
  • Monday night-Clouds and rain. Low 38.
  • Tuesday-Morning rain showers, then mostly cloudy. Highs early around 48.
  • Wednesday-Partly to mostly cloudy. High 46.
  • Thursday-Partly cloudy. Highs near 50.
  • Friday-Mostly sunny, high 58.

A cold front approaches, then moves through tomorrow night. That will hopefully diminish our chances of thunderstorms, but if they happen that’ll be tomorrow afternoon. Tomorrow night should just feature rain showers as the cold front moves through.

After that, we’ll have a few showers early Tuesday, then we’ll be back to dry weather for the rest of the week. Coldest day will be Tuesday as temperatures drop behind the front, then we’re back in the 50s by Thursday.

As mentioned above, today (Sunday the 21st) is the 33rd anniversary of the coldest recorded temperature here in the Tri-Cities. We dropped to -21 on this day in 1985. I don’t remember but a time or two I’ve forecast below zero temperatures, much less -21. I was alive for that, but I’m sure happy I don’t remember it! Something tells me that even then, I knew to stay inside all day!

I’ll have another forecast ready to go for you tomorrow afternoon. Have a great week!
