January 22, 2018 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

January 22, 2018

It’s been a warm day around the Tri-Cities, some 20 degrees above average in spots! That won’t continue, but really cold weather isn’t in the forecast, either. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Friday!

Rain showers have started across the area ahead of a cold front that should be coming in here after midnight. Temperatures will drop as a result, with tomorrow being quite chilly at times. That said, single-digit cold is not in the forecast this week. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Cloudy and windy with scattered showers. Lows near 40.
  • Tuesday-Mostly cloudy with a few rain showers. Highs early near 50, but dropping.
  • Tuesday night-Clouds and snow flurries in spots. Low 28.
  • Wednesday-Cloudy with flurries early, partly cloudy late. High 44.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny. Highs near 50.
  • Friday-Mostly sunny. High 58.

A word of note here about these forecasts. When I say we’ll have highs near 50, that doesn’t mean it’s going to be 50 degrees for even a lot of the day. As long as it hits that mark for more than a few minutes, that scientifically counts as the day’s high temperature. So what I’m predicting is where I think the highest the thermometer will go for that given day. Or at night, the lowest.

In rare cases, that warmest part of the “day” might not even be during the day. Tomorrow’s high, for example, is likely to be shortly after midnight…or at least before sunrise. Low pressure way up north is kicking cold air in from Canada, and the cold winds transport the air mass during any time of day. So yes, it’s weird for the high temperature to be at night, but it happens sometimes.

And yes, that’s going to happen tomorrow. We’ve seen days start in the 40’s and end in the 20’s, but that won’t be tomorrow. Our very early morning high temperature will be  around 50, and we’ll drop to near 40 during the day. Later in the afternoon temperatures will drop a bit once again, but overnight lows tomorrow night will end up around 28.

After some morning flurries Wednesday, clouds should start to move out. From there, sunshine and clear skies dominate our weather through the weekend.

My first look at the weekend forecast comes up tomorrow afternoon, so check here for it after 6 PM. Have a great Tuesday!
