    "Picture perfect" weather expected for Easter Sunday

    Today’s forecast is just about “picture perfect”. We will see plenty of sunshine, light wind, low relative humidity values and highs right about where we should be for this time of year, so please enjoy it! The area of high pressure giving us this nice day will slowly drift eastward on Monday, but we should still see a lot of sunshine and temperatures in the low-mid 70s. It doesn’t last though as a cold front pushes into the area on Tuesday producing widespread showers and even a few thunder...More >>

POWELL (WATE) - A north Knox County convenience store was robbed Monday evening by a man with a knife.

The Knox County Sheriff's Office says the man walked into the Weigel's store, 7444 Clinton Highway, around 6:30 p.m.

Witnesses say the man approached the register as if to make a purchase, but when the clerk opened the register the suspect brandished a large knife and lunged at the clerk.

The suspect then grabbed an unknown amount of cash from the drawer and fled.

He is described as a white male, thin, 5'9"-5'10", 150 to 160 pounds, 20 to 35 years old, and unshaven.

He was wearing a charcoal grey hoodie, jeans, white tennis shoes and a dark toboggan cap.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Knox County Sheriff's Office at (865) 215-2243.
