Weather record broken in Tri-Cities. Get ready for the cold next

Friday’s mild fall weather set a new daily record for warm weather in the Tri-Cities, according to the National Weather Service.

The temperature reached 76 degrees at the airport in Pasco, beating the old Tri-Cities record for the date of 75 set in 1945.

The Tri-Cities may not see another day with temperatures in the 70s until the spring.

A cold front moved in with Friday’s windy weather.

Highs dropped into the 50s Saturday and are forecast to be in the mid 40s Tuesday through Thursday in the Tri-Cities, according to the weather service forecast.

Lows were forecast to be near freezing for the weekend, but could drop to as low as 23 on Tuesday night.
