Bitter cold, snowfall forecast for Tri-Cities

February 5, 2014 

— Bitter cold and maybe a light snowfall are in the forecast for the Tri-Cities through Thursday night.

After an overnight low that was forecast to be as cold as 4 degrees, the high today could be 22 degrees.

But a northwest wind around 8 mph could bring the wind chill value to as low as minus 9 today, according to the National Weather Service.

A 30 percent chance of snow is forecast tonight, decreasing to a 20 percent chance Friday through Friday night. Snow is most likely on Sunday.

Temperatures will gradually warm, but still remain below normal through the weekend.

By Monday the high should finally climb above freezing and Monday night the low should be back in the 30s.
