Winter Chill heading our way; Possible first snow too
Get ready, the first blast of Arctic air is set to arrive this weekend! Highs will be more typical of January instead of November! A breeze will make it feel even colder Saturday.
While a few mountain flurries or snow showers are possible, only light accumulations are expected above 3000 feet Saturday morning (locally more above 5000 feet).
But wait, there's more.
Another blast of Arctic air is forecast to invade the region early next week (Tuesday and Wednesday). This weather maker has the potential to change rain over to snow showers or flurries (even in the valleys)! There's still a lot of uncertainty on how much rain vs. snow will fall next week, so check back for updates. The map below is an early estimate through Wednesday morning.
It's not unusual to see snow in November, even in the Tri-Cities. In fact we average about 5% of our yearly snowfall in the month (between 0.5" to 1").
