CLEARING AND COLD TONIGHT
SUNSHINE TO START THE WEEKEND, ALONG WITH NEAR NORMAL TEMPERATURES
RAIN SHOWERS DEVELOPING LATER IN THE DAY SUNDAY, POSSIBLY MIXED WITH SNOW TO START
Tonight: Clear and cold. Lows 13-19. Light northwest wind.
Saturday: Partly cloudy. Highs 38-45. Southwest wind 5-10 mph.
Saturday Night: Mostly cloudy. Lows 23-28. Light wind.
Sunday: Cloudy with a 60% chance of showers, especially during the afternoon. Rain may be mixed with snow initially, especially over the higher elevations.
We are tracking a mostly clear and cold night in the StormTrack 5 Weather Center.
The clearing skies tonight will allow for a quick cool down as temperature drop into the teens overnight.
High pressure will be the main weather feature for Saturday in the Tri-Cities providing partly cloudy and seasonable temperatures. Highs will reach the upper 30s to middle 40s.
StormTrack 5 meteorologists are tracking a storm system to the west and north that will merge and slide into the area with a 60 percent chance of rain on Sunday. We expect to be warm enough for mainly rain during the day (but a mix is possible north and east of the Tri-Cities).
Rain continues in the forecast Sunday night, but colder air will wrap into the system late at night. Rain will likely turn to snow showers and flurries late Sunday night into Monday.
This will once again bring the possibility of slippery roads to be on the alert for as you drive into work Monday morning. This will be especially true in the mountains where a better chance of snow accumulation exists.
Tuesday into Wednesday will be partly cloudy before the next system arrives with a rain chance late in the day. Flurries and chilly conditions are expected on Thursday.
Cold and dry weather is forecast on Friday.
