“Spring-Like” temperatures through Friday – Cold air and snow return this weekend!

Tuesday, January 9, 2018 –

Good Evening.  Finally!  We had a mild afternoon across the region.

We even had some limited sunshine with the clouds.  You can see the clouds and fog on this satellite imagery from College of DuPage.  You can also see the black areas which represent sunshine.  Notice the large area of white across much of east Tennessee.  That slow moving white blog is the low cloud cover and the fog.

If you liked today’s weather, you will love the next three days with more mild air!

The warmth will also bring an increase in rain to the region Thursday and Friday.

We keep the clouds in the forecast tonight with areas of fog and some possible drizzle.

8 PM Tonight – Variable cloudy skies with areas of fog and even some drizzle.

6 AM Wednesday – We start the day with mostly cloudy skies and patchy dense fog.

Noon Wednesday – Look for a mix of sun and clouds with mild temperatures.

4 PM Wednesday – We will see some afternoon sunshine with mild temperatures.

Our next weather maker will bring more clouds into the area late Wednesday into Thursday.

8 PM Wednesday – The clouds start to move back into the area.

1 PM Thursday – Mostly cloudy skies are forecast for the area with scattered showers across the mountains.

Noon Friday – Keep your umbrella handy.  We have rain in the forecast through the afternoon.

The cold air will make a comeback late Friday night into early Saturday with rain changing to snow after midnight into Saturday morning.

Here is a look at the possible rainfall through Friday night.

The cold air will bring snow to the area on Saturday. Here is a look at the possible snowfall accumulation area for Saturday.  It is a bit too early for exact snowfall totals, but it does appear that the Tri-Cities area could see a trace to maybe an inch os snow through early Saturday morning.  Heavier snowfall totals will be to our northwest.  Stay tuned.

The cold air will stick around into early next week.
