Weather Summary:

We are tracking another cold night in the StormTrack 5 Weather Center. A mostly clear sky is expected with temperatures dropping into the lower to middle 20s.

High pressure will dominate our weather this weekend.  As the area of high pressure drifts to the coast, our wind flow will become more southerly.  The end result is a noticeable warming trend.  Partly or mostly sunny conditions are expected this weekend with highs in the 50s Saturday, and near 60 on Sunday.

StormTrack 5 meteorologists are tracking a cold front that will approach the Tri-Cities on Monday.  The front will slowly move south across the southern Appalachians through Tuesday.  A period or two of rain will be possible later in the day Monday through Tuesday.  A lingering shower is possible through Wednesday.

A break in the chance of rain arrives Thursday, but a few showers may move back into the region on Friday.  At this time, no severe weather is forecast with any of the weather systems next week. 

High temperatures will be in the upper 50s Monday, but drop back to near 50 on Tuesday. Temperatures will warm back into the 50s to near 60 Wednesday through Friday.  Lows will be in the lower 30s to lower 40s next week.
