Other than a little freezing fog early on, it’s been a fantastic Wednesday weather wise. We have one more good day of weather before a lot of things start changing tomorrow night and Friday. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through the weekend!
Currently, a cold front stretches from Canada into Montana, Wyoming, through Utah and Nevada to California. That’s the next thing that will bring us interesting weather, after what turns out to be two days of temperatures a bit above average during the day and right at it overnight. Here’s the outlook for a quick look at what the front will do before and after it passes through:
- Tonight-Partly cloudy, some fog or freezing fog in the morning. Low 24.
- Thursday-Mostly sunny. High 52.
- Thursday night-Increasing clouds. Low 32.
- Friday-Mostly cloudy with some scattered snow showers changing to rain. Highs around 44.
- Saturday-Mostly cloudy and windy with scattered snow showers. High 37.
- Sunday-Cloudy skies with some snow flurries. Highs near 40.
That cold front I mentioned earlier continues to move east tomorrow. By tomorrow evening, it’ll start pushing clouds into our area. It appears we’ll stay dry into early Friday morning before some light snow showers begin.
As we go through the day on Friday, there’s a chance we’ll see many phases of precipitation, and probably some at the same time. In the mountains there will likely be snow for much of the event. In the valleys, though, we’ll see snow to start, changing to rain on Friday, then back to snow after dark. I don’t expect too much in the way of accumulation with the coming storm, except maybe for a couple inches of snow in the higher elevations.
Behind the front, things will be cloudy, windy and cold. Light snow is possible Saturday, and that’ll taper off to flurries before ending altogether on Sunday. Temperatures this weekend at most will be in the upper 30’s to near 40, with overnight lows in the mid 20s.
