January 30, 2018 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

January 30, 2018

It’s turned out to be a beautiful day today, but it’s sure been cold! We have an up-and-down temperature situation in the coming days with a couple shots of snow in today’s Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast!

For those who got decent amounts of snow when you woke up this morning, congratulations! We saw maybe three-quarters of an inch of snow at my house this morning near Bristol, that’s about it. As usual, folks in the mountains saw a little more, with a 4 inch reading up in the higher elevations by morning. More snow is coming, so here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy to mostly clear. Low 16.
  • Wednesday-Mostly sunny. High 51.
  • Wednesday night-Partly cloudy. Low 27.
  • Thursday-Becoming mostly cloudy with afternoon rain developing. High 48.
    • This will change to snow showers Thursday night, bringing 1″ of snow at most.
  • Friday-Mostly cloudy with snow flurries. High 35, but dropping.
  • Saturday-Partly to mostly cloudy. High 41.
  • Sunday-Cloudy with rain and/or snow showers. High 38.

High pressure will keep us dry in the coming day and a half. Tomorrow will be much warmer, as we’ll get just over 50. Clouds start moving in Thursday, with rain likely in the afternoon for the Tri-Cities. Folks in southwest Virginia will likely see rain first, as soon as mid morning.

Thursday night, that rain will change over to snow. Right now, computers say anything from almost no snow to 4 inches. My forecast for what we’ll see Thursday night? Maybe an inch in the Tri-Cities, 3-4″ in the higher elevations, essentially the peaks. That’s basically it. Most of us won’t see a whole lot.

Friday looks a lot like today, although I’m not sure we’ll clear out as much by late in the day on Friday. That clearing will come on Saturday morning, but just like that another cold front brings…something our way.

We won’t see temperatures go up so much on Saturday, so with moisture coming in Saturday night, warmth is not something that looks like a possibility on Sunday. And with lacking warmth comes better chances of snow. It’s a little soon to be talking accumulations just yet, but if temperatures stay in the 30’s, Sunday might get interesting.

I’ll keep an eye on that in the coming days for sure. Have a great Wednesday!
