KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A rather
quiet and mild weather pattern will take up shop across the region through most
of the week. Look for a mostly clear and cool night tonight as lows will drop
back into the upper 20s to lower 30s for most areas.
A dry cold front will slide
southeastward across our area Tuesday without much fanfare. We will see a
slight increase in cloud cover across the northern half of the viewing area,
but it will remain dry. Everyone should see the southerly winds increase
throughout the day helping push highs to slightly above-average levels.
front should cool temperatures off just a few degrees for Wednesday, but that
will be short lived as we see temperatures soar into the 60s and possibly get
close to 70° by the weekend.
It won't be dry though this weekend. Once again, a
strong cold front looks poised to slowly trudge its way across the region late
Friday through early Monday morning. It won't be a continuous rain; in fact, it
will be rather scattered Friday and Saturday before becoming more widespread and
potentially heavy Sunday into Monday.
There is a possibility of some thunder
with some of the late weekend storms as well as the potential for some very
strong winds in the higher elevation areas.
Tonight: Mostly clear and cool. Low: 32°.
Tuesday: Partly cloudy, breezy and a little
warmer. High: 52°.
Wednesday: Mostly sunny and just a little
cooler. High: 48°.
