Lots of sunshine Friday, but no warm up

KNOXVILLE (WATE) - There might be plenty of sunshine Friday, but that doesn't mean the temperatures will increase significantly.

The 6 Storm Team says a large and cold dome of high pressure will set up shop across the region Friday providing lots of sunshine, but temperatures will be some 10 to 20 degrees below average.

It will remain clear and get even colder into the night with another freeze expected as lows drop down into the 20s for most areas.

Knoxville's record low for Saturday is 27 degrees set in 1962.

The 6 Storm Team says we will start to see a "slow" warm up through the weekend as the dome of high pressure shifts eastward, and we start to see a more southerly wind flow at the surface.

It still looks chilly Saturday and Sunday with highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s, but we should be closer to 70 degrees by Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.

Thursday is Halloween and as of right now, it appears as though we will see scattered storms. Timing still isn't exact, but we will follow the progression of this storm system as we go into next week and keep everyone updated.
