Rain for the Tri-Cities with snow for the mountains tonight and Tuesday

Monday, March 13, 2017 –

Good Evening.  Clouds will continue to roll into the area tonight with a chance of rain for the Tri-Cities and snow across the mountains.  Temperatures will be in the low to middle 30s.

Take a look at this satellite imagery from NOAA.  You can see our system coming in from the west which will merge with a developing area of low pressure that will continue to gain strength as it moves up the east coast.

Winter Weather Advisories have been issued for the mountains as snow starts late tonight into Tuesday.

Take a look at the Winter Weather Advisories that are in effect for parts of the area on Tuesday.  The blue areas are snow that will be possible across the mountains from tonight through early Wednesday.  I do want to stress the fact that snow totals will be from tonight through Wednesday for the mountains – areas above 3,000 feet have the best chance of accumulation.

8 PM Tonight – Rain begins to move into the Tri-Cities with snow in the mountains.

Tuesday 9:45 AM – Snow continues across the mountains.

1 PM Tuesday – Snow will be possible int he mountains.

7 PM Tuesday – Cloudy skies with areas of snow in the mountains and a few flurries across the Tri-Cities.

11 PM Tuesday – Cloudy with areas of snow in the mountains with flurries in the Tri-Cities.

6 AM Wednesday – Clouds and snow flurries will be possible.

Wednesday 4 PM – Sunny skies and cold temperatures will prevail.


Warmer temperatures are forecast for the end of the week with scattered showers.

Have a great night!
