A new storm system could bring snow to the Tri-Cities Sunday and Monday.

The National Weather Service is forecasting a 40 percent chance of snow Sunday and Monday, dropping to 20 percent on Tuesday.

Rain is possible this evening, but then temperatures should drop enough that any additional precipitation should fall as snow over the next several days.

Lows should remain in the 20s through at least Wednesday night in the Tri-Cities, with the temperature as cold as 20 degrees on Monday and Tuesday nights.

Highs should be in the upper 20s to mid 30s.

Normal highs for the Tri-Cities in February are about 48 degrees and lows are about 30 degrees.

Snow on Interstates 84 and 90

The storm system will be of concern to those heading out of town.

The weather service says 8 to 15 inches of snow are possible in the northern Blue Mountains of Oregon.

It has issued a winter storm watch from Saturday evening through Tuesday afternoon for Interstate 84 from Meacham to between Baker City and Ontario.

For those heading to Western Washington on Interstate 90, a winter weather advisory has been issued from noon Friday to 6 a.m. Saturday morning at Snoqualmie Pass. Snowfall at or near the pass could total 4 to 9 inches.
