StormTrack 5 meteorologists will be tracking a storm system that will arrive Friday. A breezy southwest wind will allow temperatures to climb into the upper 60s to middle 70s today and Friday. Some scattered showers and isolated thundershowers are possible today, but much of today looks dry.
Rain chances increase Friday with enough instability to produce a few thunderstorms as well. Scattered showers and thundershowers are possible through the day, but the highest chance of rain appears to be Friday evening and night. The severe threat looks marginal in the Tri-Cities at this time (the main threat looks to stay just to our west). However a line of storms could produce downpours and gusty winds Friday evening. Check back for updates as we track this storm system into the region.
A strong cold front will move through Friday night. By Saturday, things will calm down but cool off quite a bit. It will be breezy with highs in the 50s.
StormTrack 5 meteorologists are forecasting a pleasant Easter weekend. High pressure looks to be nearby, providing us with an egg-cellent Easter Sunday.

Monday and Tuesday will bring a chance of showers with temperatures warming into the 60s and 70s.
