We are tracking an area of low pressure in the StormTrack 5 Weather Center. This low pressure to our northwest will steer some moisture into the area, meaning clouds will be on the increase. Overnight lows will drop into the mid to upper 20s.
StormTrack 5 meteorologists are tracking a storm system that will have implications on our weather for Super Bowl Sunday into Monday. Ahead of this system, winds will blow out of the south at 5-15 mph, with gusts up to 20-25 mph Sunday. Stronger winds are possible in the mountains.
A stray shower is possible Sunday morning. Rain will develop late Sunday afternoon. Rain is likely Sunday evening and night. Temperatures will hold in the 40s most areas overnight thanks to a strong southerly flow. Rain will likely turn to snow showers or flurries Monday morning as much colder air pours in behind a strong cold front.
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 (1 to 3 inches is possible in the mountains Monday, little to no snowfall accumulation for the Tri-Cities).
WINDY conditions are expected Monday behind the cold front's passage. Winds of 15 to 30 mph with higher gusts are anticipated. Temperatures will drop all day Monday starting in the 40s early and ending in the 20s late. Wind chills will drop into the 10s and possibly single digits at times.
Skies will clear Monday night, sending our low temperatures back into the 10s. Tuesday will start off cold, but feature lots of sunshine and temperatures a few degrees below the average during the day. Wednesday will be partly cloudy and seasonable before the next system arrives. Flurries or snow showers and chilly conditions are expected on Thursday. Temperatures will remain below average to wrap up the work week.
Highs 45-50 Sunday, in the 30s Monday, upper 30s to lower 40s Tuesday, near 50 Wednesday, and mid to upper 30s Thursday and Friday.
Lows in the 10s Monday night with 20s Tuesday through Friday night.
