December 11, 2017 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

December 11, 2017 Leave a comment

Snow is on its way, but it doesn’t look like we’ll see too terribly much of it. Cold temperatures will be the big weather story in tonight’s Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast.

As usual, the word “snow” hits a forecast and people ask me how much there’s going to be. I don’t think the front coming in tomorrow will bring all that much to our area, as the heavier totals should be north of here. Here’s the forecast through Friday:

  • Tonight-Increasing clouds, maybe some flurries by morning. Low 30.
  • Tuesday-Cloudy and windy with scattered snow showers. High 38.
  • Tuesday night-Partly cloudy and cold. Low 15.
  • Wednesday-Partly cloudy. High 37.
  • Thursday-Partly cloudy, maybe a rain or snow shower early. High 47.
  • Friday-Cloudy with rain/snow showers. Highs near 40.

Snow showers will start late tonight and run through much of the day tomorrow, but they should be off-and-on during the course of the day. With that said, I’m not so sure that we’re going to see much. A dusting to maybe an inch if we’re lucky is about it for the Tri-Cities, and there may be an inch or two in the mountains, with better chances of that along the Virginia/West Virginia border.

Temperatures drop behind that Alberta Clipper (the name of a storm system that seemingly forms in the Canadian province where Calgary and Edmonton are located), tomorrow. Our high of 38 may well happen before noon. Temperatures are likely to drop toward freezing by tomorrow afternoon.

Things get cold tomorrow night as lows drop to the mid teens…possibly as cold as 10 degrees in the mountains. We’ll stay dry on Wednesday and most of us will on Thursday, but we could see a couple rain or snow showers in the northern part of our area in the morning hours.

Another one of those clippers breezes through here late Thursday, and it’ll bring chances of light snow on Friday in its wake. Friday is also a day where it’ll be colder in the afternoon than in the morning.

Thanks for looking to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog for the forecast! Make sure you listen for the audio forecast on WHCB 91.5 FM The Blessing, 96.3 FM The Possum, or 97.3 Love FM in the Tri-Cities. Stay warm tomorrow!

We’re going to have calm weather for a while this week, so here’s a quick Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast!

Look for clear skies and cool conditions tonight, another night ending below freezing. Sunshine will dominate our weather again tomorrow, as we warm up toward the lower 60’s.

After a morning about average temperature wise (close to 30), Wednesday should be a partly cloudy day at worst, with highs around 62. A cold front will bring those extra clouds by during the day.

Another front brings a partly to mostly cloudy day and a few scattered showers Thursday, with highs near 60. We start December with a few rain showers Friday morning with partly cloudy skies late as we warm up to 58 degrees.

That’s it for now! I’ll be back hopefully a little earlier in the afternoon tomorrow with a full forecast. Have a great Tuesday!

The sun is out, and we’re getting warmer than expected temperatures on this Friday! We’ll cool down a bit this weekend, but not much and not for long. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for tonight through Tuesday!

A few clouds might move in tonight, with patchy fog possible in spots by morning. A few showers might be possible toward the middle of Saturday, but other than that, this is a mostly dry forecast. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy, fog possible in the morning. Low 34.
  • Saturday-Partly to mostly cloudy and windy, a small chance of rain. High 58.
  • Saturday night-Mostly cloudy, maybe a sprinkle or two. Low 33.
  • Sunday-Partly cloudy and cooler, high 51.
  • Monday-Mostly sunny. High 55.
  • Tuesday-Mostly sunny. High 58.

A fast moving cold front is a good thing if you don’t want rain, because it won’t be around long to bring it. That’s what’s happening tomorrow, and a few rain showers might move through late in the morning through early afternoon.

After that, clouds hang around through tomorrow night, with a few sprinkles or flurries possible. The weather will clear out by the end of Sunday, with dry weather likely for Monday and Tuesday.

Thanks for checking here for the forecast, have a great weekend!

November 22, 2017 Thanksgiving #TriCitiesWx Forecast

November 22, 2017 Comments off

It’s the final day before Thanksgiving, so there’s a lot to do! With that said, here’s a short Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast for the entire weekend!

There isn’t a lot going on, other than a cold front moving through Saturday. So the weather will be dry for the most part through Sunday. Here’s the forecast!

  • Tonight-Mostly clear. Low 25.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny. High 54.
  • Thursday night-Mostly clear. Lows near 30.
  • Friday-Mostly sunny. Highs near 60.
  • Saturday-Partly to mostly cloudy with a small chance of rain. High 60.
  • Sunday-Decreasing clouds and cooler. Highs near 50.

Rain may include a rumble of thunder in spots on Saturday, but there shouldn’t be much of that and it shouldn’t last too long when it happens. Dry weather will be helpful Thursday night through Friday for those shopping.

That’s all for now. My next forecast will be up sometime on Friday. Happy Thanksgiving!

As we enter Thanksgiving week, the weather isn’t frightful just yet. It is a little cooler than our late November average, and we’ll hover near that mark through the rest of the week. Welcome to the Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast through Friday!

There’s not a whole lot going on weather wise this week, except for a cold front that will move through early Wednesday. Other than a small temperature drop and a wind shift, that’s all we’ll get as most of the rain stays away. Here’s the outlook:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy. Low 28.
  • Tuesday-A partly to mostly sunny day. High 59.
  • Tuesday night-Partly cloudy. Low 37.
  • Wednesday-Partly cloudy to mostly sunny. High 53.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny. High 54.
  • Friday-Mostly sunny. High 59.

High pressure will be around through tomorrow, the front moves through tomorrow night, then high pressure returns after that until another cold front arrives this weekend. There’s going to be little moisture with the front tomorrow night, so we should stay dry for a while.

That said, when stuff does start falling from the sky, did you know you can tell meteorologists what’s hitting the ground? Our radars shoot upward thanks to the Earth’s curvature, so here in our area the radar beam is over 6,000 feet off the ground or more.

So, an app has been developed that allows people to report what is going on at ground level, whether it be rain, snow, sleet, graupel (it’s hard to tell the difference between the last two sometimes!), or even severe weather. The app is called mPING, which stands for the Meteorological Phenomena Identification Near the Ground. I use it a lot!

It’ll find where you are, and within a few taps you can report what’s happening and send that information to the National Severe Storms Laboratory and the University of Oklahoma for study on how to make the radars better. So check out the NSSL mPing page for more info, or just search mPing on your app store. It helps a lot in winter weather situations, or at any point when rain is falling below where the radar can see it! Just…be honest about what you’re reporting!

Which means you won’t use it any time for the next four days, except maybe late tomorrow night or early Wednesday morning. Go ahead and get to installing, if you’re so inclined. Have a great Tuesday!
