Thursday was another beauty of a day across the ABC12 viewing area. There was a pretty wide range of temperatures across the area during the afternoon, and that will again be the case for Friday. A pretty strong storm system will move into the area from the southwest, and it will produce a wide range of weather conditions.
For areas north of the Great Lakes Bay Region, a Winter Weather Advisory is in effect and some accumulations of snow will be possible as highs Friday struggle to hit 40-degrees. For the Tri-Cities, the pattern should be mainly rain with highs moving through the mid 40s. For the southern part of the area, it will be all rain, and highs will easily push through the 50s. For the entire area, some rumbles of thunder will be a possibility.
As this storm system exits stage-east for the weekend, the entire area will have colder air settling in overhead. Temperatures will be steady, to slowly falling Saturday with a rain/snow mix. Sunday will be a bit brighter with highs right about where they should be for this time of the year. - JR
