January 14, 2021 #TriCitiesWx Forecast

Thursday, January 14

There’s snow in the forecast! I remember growing up watching the weather (yes, Dave Dierks was around back then…Happy Birthday Dave!) this time of year just to see if we were going to get snow and be out of school. That may be the case for some for tomorrow, so check with your local schools on that. For us adults, we move on through the snow, which I’ll tell you more about in this Tri-Cities Weather Blog forecast!

On to the outlook…since my intro took a little time:

  • Tonight-Increasing clouds, light rain or snow toward morning. Low 32.
  • Friday-Mostly cloudy; scattered snow showers changing to rain. High 44.
  • Friday night-More clouds and scattered snow showers. Low 27.
  • Saturday-Cloudy, windy and cold with some snow showers or flurries. High 37.
  • Sunday-Mostly cloudy. High 38.
  • Monday-Mostly cloudy. Highs near 40.

As of Thursday night at 7 PM, a cold front is situated roughly along the Mississippi River. That front is what will increase the clouds, and then the chances of snow showers. We should have dry weather for most of tonight, but toward morning the light rain and/or snow should begin. A morning low of 32 degrees would indicate that both rain and snow or maybe sleet could all happen together for a short time.

The farther we go through the morning, we should warm up just ahead of the cold front. That should change everything back over to rain, before precipitation stops entirely sometime in the afternoon. The colder weather rolls in behind the front.

Snow showers return tomorrow night and through most of Saturday, before it all finally clears out of here for Sunday. The big story weather wise Saturday will be less about snow and more about cold temperatures. A high of 37 isn’t terrible, but with gusty winds it’ll feel more like 20-25 degrees. Of course, all this is even colder when you consider increases in elevation.

Clouds will hang around for a while, sadly. It looks like there won’t be much coming from said clouds, thankfully, as we finish the weekend into early next week.

Thanks for checking here for the forecast! Whether “here” is TriCitiesWx.com, or one of the radio station sites for WHCB, 96.3 The Possum, or Love FM, I appreciate you looking in. I’ll try to have another forecast either tomorrow or Sunday. Either way, have a great weekend!
