Temperatures will drop 10 degrees or more in the Tri-Cities next week as a cold front moves across the Northwest on Sunday and Monday.
The system will bring a much colder and drier air mass to the region, according to the National Weather Service. As high pressure strengthens Monday, clouds and winds will decrease overnight, leading to much colder temperatures.
The coldest temperatures are expected to happen around sunrise Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.
In the Mid-Columbia, some areas may have freezing temperatures. In the Tri-Cities, the temperature is forecast to drop as low as 32 degrees.
Highs in the Tri-Cities from Monday through Friday are forecast in the 50s.
