February 28, 2018 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

February 28, 2018

It is the end of winter! For us meteorologists, Spring starts tomorrow. We’re not out of the woods with cold weather yet, but the worst is over for sure. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through the weekend!

It’s been quite warm recently, with several days above average in a row here. To be sure, cold snaps will happen between now and April, but it’s likely in my opinion that anything below 20 has probably happened for the year at this point here in the Tri-Cities. As for snow, our total at the airport is 4.7 inches. There’s still time to add to that, though.

We’re not going to add to that tomorrow or into the weekend. There might be some flurries in the mountains behind the cold front Thursday night, but that’s it through Sunday. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Cloudy with scattered showers. Low 48.
  • Thursday-Cloudy with rain showers and gusty winds. High 63.
  • Thursday night-Cloudy with scattered showers or a few mountain flurries. Low 35.
  • Friday-Decreasing clouds. High 49.
  • Saturday-Mostly sunny. High 48.
  • Sunday-Mostly sunny. High 55.

If the warm front gets through here before it dies out, it will do one or the other tonight. That’s going to keep our low temperature overnight close to the 50 degree mark. We’ll have scattered showers returning, as just after 5 PM there’s a bit of a dry slot here under cloudy skies.

Tomorrow should be a cloudy and windy day, ahead of the cold front we’ll have windy conditions as well. Despite the rain, it’ll be a warm day. Rain comes to an end tomorrow night, and clouds move out on Friday. We could get a total rainfall between an inch and 1.5 inches by the time the rain comes to an end.

Meanwhile on Friday, a nor’easter takes shape for the northeast. They’re looking at a lot of rain to start, followed by a lot of snow. Things should be interesting for folks in Ohio and Pennsylvania and points northeast in the coming days, with low pressure moving up the coast.

Here, the weekend looks fantastic. We’ll be between cold fronts, and it looks right now like we’ll get through the weekend rain free. I’ll have a better idea about that tomorrow afternoon, though, and definitely on Friday. Have a wonderful Thursday!
