Cold weather has arrived since my last forecast here on the blog, and the difference is striking! Thankfully the snow wasn’t too much to worry about on Friday. There’s the chance of more snow during this week’s Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast!

I looked at the last forecast I produced before I took my vacation. One week ago was prediction of a low last Monday morning of 35 degrees, with highs projected for that day around 63. The real low temperature was well cooler at 28, but I was close to the high, as it was 64. It’s amazing how much things have changed! We’re not going to be near that for highs in the next few days, though. Here’s the outlook.

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy. Low 24.
  • Monday-Partly cloudy. High 49.
  • Monday night-Cloudy with a few showers by morning. Low 33.
  • Tuesday-Cloudy with scattered snow showers. Morning highs near 40.
  • Wednesday-Decreasing clouds. High 33.
  • Thursday-Partly to mostly cloudy, a small chance of rain or snow. High 42.
  • Friday-Cloudy and cold, morning flurries possible. Low 38.

Cold fronts move through here Tuesday afternoon and sometime Friday. Those will bring fresh blasts of cold air into our area, and some snowflakes or raindrops from time to time. As it looks right now, nothing appears to be too heavy for the next five days or so.

After that first cold front, the cold blast will be apparent. Lows Tuesday night into Wednesday morning look to be in the mid teens for most of us, closer to single digits in the mountains. Wednesday will be the coldest day of the week, as many of us will struggle to hit freezing.

I’ll have a new forecast tomorrow updating the first cold front’s progress, as it isn’t showing much moisture right now. That’s supposed to change as it gets here if the computer models are to be believed, so we’ll see what things show tomorrow afternoon. Have a great week!

Good evening, everyone! Lots of changes are coming this week in terms of weather, as we’ll have temperatures similar to January by the time we reach the end of the week, with low temperatures in the teens possible as well. Welcome to this week’s Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast!

If you’ve wondered where I’ve been, it’s been busy times in the weather office that doubles as a radio programming office and several other things. We’ve been preparing Christmas programming on 91.5 The Blessing WHCB, and that took a lot to get ready by Friday morning. It’s all good now, and hopefully you’ll listen in and enjoy the programs and music!

That said, let’s get to the outlook, which turns chilly in a few days:

  • Tonight-Partly cloudy with some morning fog. Low 35.
  • Monday-Partly to mostly sunny. High 63.
  • Monday night-Partly to mostly cloudy. Lows near 40.
  • Tuesday-Mostly cloudy with rain likely. High 62.
  • Wednesday-Morning snow flurries, followed by a mix of clouds and sun. High 45.
  • Thursday-Partly cloudy. High 43.
  • Friday-Cloudy with a few rain showers. High 42.

We’re going to see one more day of dry, calm weather before the changes start on Tuesday. So if you get a chance, get out on Monday and enjoy the temperatures above 60. We will get warm temperatures like that Tuesday, but there will be rain showers as a cold front pushes our way.

That front will move through Tuesday evening, and it’ll be the front of a large, cold air mass, the first of the season. We’ll see a chance for snow flurries Wednesday morning, and a dry but cool Thursday.

By the end of the week, another cold front arrives with a few more rain showers and another shot of cold air. In fact, Friday’s high around 42 might happen around midnight, with temperatures in the 30’s by the end of the afternoon.

By comparison, yesterday’s high was 63 degrees. It was a beautiful early December day. Early projections indicate that this coming Saturday will only warm up to around 35.

Big changes are certainly on the way, so it’s time to get out the cold weather gear to stay warm while outside! I’ll be back in a week’s time with a new forecast, as Cody Ray pinch hits for me on the air starting Tuesday morning. Have a great week!

I know it’s late, but a forecast is needed before we get to Monday! Hopefully some of you get this when you wake up in the morning. Regardless, here’s what the weather looks like for the coming days, outlook first:

  • Monday-A few rain showers early, becoming partly cloudy late. High 53.
  • Monday night-Partly cloudy and cold. Lows near 30.
  • Tuesday-Mostly sunny. High 55.
  • Wednesday-Increasing clouds, with a small chance of rain late. High 58.
  • Thursday-Partly cloudy. High 57.

I’ll have a full forecast for the remainder of the week sometime tomorrow afternoon. Looks right now like temperatures will be a touch below normal for much of the week, though. Have a great Monday!

It’s been a cold Sunday, but we’ll warm up nicely in the coming days. We might well see 60 degrees again by Tuesday. Here’s a quick look at the forecast for this week!

  • Tonight-Freeze warning until morning, with cloudy conditions. Low 28.
  • Monday-Becoming partly cloudy. High 57.
  • Monday night-Partly cloudy, not as cold. Low 38.
  • Tuesday-Partly cloudy. Highs near 60.
  • Wednesday-A mix of clouds and sun with a few rain showers. Highs near 60.
  • Thursday-Mostly cloudy with a few showers possible. High 67.
  • Friday-Partly to mostly cloudy. A few rain showers possible. High 68.

It doesn’t look like those days with rain later this week will feature any substantial rain just yet. The better chances of rain look to be Thursday and Friday, so I’ll keep an eye on that each day this week.

Each afternoon I’ll have the latest forecast for the next three to five days. I typically post the forecast by 6 PM, so keep an eye on the blog at about that time each day for a new outlook. Have a great week!

It’s been a fine weekend, but clouds have come in today. Rain-bearing clouds are coming tonight, and we’ll see some heavy rain at times tomorrow through Tuesday. Welcome to this week’s Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast!

Off to the outlook we go:

  • Tonight-Cloudy and windy with rain toward morning. Low 57.
  • Monday-Cloudy with rain and thunderstorms. High 68.
  • Monday night-More clouds and rain. Low 45.
  • Tuesday-Cloudy and windy with a few rain showers. Highs near 60 (early).
  • Wednesday-Partly cloudy and cooler. Highs near 50.
  • Thursday-Mostly sunny. High 63.
  • Friday-Partly cloudy. High 68.

A cold front moves through tomorrow evening, and that’s the rain maker through Tuesday, with a second one drifting through then. It’ll take a bit on Tuesday and Wednesday to get clouds out of here, but once we do, things turn chilly.

In fact, Wednesday will be our coldest day in quite some time, as we’ll struggle to get up to 50 degrees. But as usual, we tend to warm up quickly around here. From 50 on Wednesday, we’ll gain to 63 degrees by Thursday and way up into the upper 60’s by the end of Friday.

Then, another cold front will be approaching. So expect clouds to roll in Friday night, with rain showers possible into Saturday.

Thanks for reading the blog today. Have a great week!
