By Friday, a cold front moves into the region from the northwest. Showers are likely to develop Friday and will linger into Saturday morning. Right now Saturday night and Sunday are looking dry, but cooler.
Another large area of high pressure will move into the Tri-Cities region next week. This will bring another bout of sunny and warm weather through the middle of next week.
