    "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 >>

KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Officials at Knox County's Shannondale Elementary School broke ground on a new expansion Monday.

Portable buildings that some students are currently housed in will be replaced.

The renovation will add almost 22,000 square feet to the facility, including 12 new classrooms, a new library, new bathrooms and more room in the cafeteria.

Principal Jack Nealy said the project is a long time in the making.

"It's going to serve as an important back drop to not only engage students in their education, but to provide the necessary tools to take this to the next level," said Principal Nealy.

Nealy said the expansion should be finished by the next school year.
