Tuesday, March 6, 2018 -
Good evening. We started the day with rain, but as I promised yesterday, we enjoyed the afternoon sunshine. Temperatures warmed as clouds broke through the afternoon. Climate data for the Tri-Cities Airport.
I want to talk about the satellite data for a minute. The imagery below shows the cold front to our east with the associated clouds and rain.
Now, look at the low pressure system heading our way tonight. This will bring clouds, wind and snow to the region early tomorrow morning.
The cold temperatures are making a come back Wednesday into Thursday. Look for a chance of light snow early Wednesday morning.
8 PM Tonight - Clear skies early with chilly temperatures.
5 AM Wednesday - A rain/snow mix will move into the region.
7:15 Wednesday - Snow showers are forecast for the region.
2 PM Wednesday - It will be a cold, blustery afternoon with a chance of light rain and snow showers.
6 PM Wednesday - Cloudy and windy weather will prevail across the region. Winds will be from the west at 15 to 25 mph. Dress Warm!
8 PM Wednesday - We keep the chance of snow flurries across the Tri-Cities with light snow possible across the mountains.
6 AM Thursday - The higher elevations could still see some light snow and flurries early in the day.
3 PM Thursday - It will be a cold and breezy afternoon with scattered flurries possible in the mountains.
Sunshine and dry weather will prevail on Friday.
Take a look at the potential snowfall for Wednesday. Parts of the Tri-Cities could see a light dusting of accumulation of snow early Wednesday morning.The mountains have a better chance seeing as much as one to two inches of snow.
We stay cool this weekend with a chance of rain Saturday and a chance of rain and snow Sunday into early Monday - depending on elevation. Don't forget - This is the weekend that Time Changes - Spring Forward one hour before bedtime Saturday night.
Cloudy with snow showers tonight
