The cloud cover may be a bit stubborn tonight especially in the southwest part of the state, but partial clearing should take place from the Tri-Cities eastward. It will be a cold night, even with a warm front pushing from west to east. Temperatures will drop into the single digits for morning lows, but the thermometer will hold steady or fluctuate up a tick or two as we get closer to daybreak as ‘milder’ air spreads east. Behind the warm front winds will switch toward the southwest and pick up overnight driving wind chill values below zero....Into the -5 to -10 degree range region wide early in the morning.

Chilly start to Wednesday..

The coldest temperatures will be behind us, as we look forward into the weekend. Both Wednesday and Thursday should see highs in the upper 30s to lower 40s, even with a weak cold front expected on Thursday but it will not ‘feel’ that warm with wind speeds both days in the 15 to 25 mph range, gusting to as high as 35 mph on the top end.

Milder temperatures but with breezy conditions it will not feel as warm.

It will be much nicer Friday through the weekend with more sunshine, less wind and temperatures expected to jump into the mid 40s Friday, then into the low to mid 50s from Saturday into next Monday. With many uncertainties to figure out, our next chance for precipitation will come next Tuesday into Wednesday with small chances for rain with a snow possibility at night.
