KNOXVILLE (WATE) - The thaw has been nice and it should continue through the weekend. The problem is, once again, it looks like we will see some rain over the weekend.

A strong cold front will roll across the region late tonight through early Saturday spreading numerous showers, and possibly even a few rumbles of thunder, across the entire area. The wind could be very strong for areas along the Foothills and in the Smokies, especially above 3,000 feet, where the gusts could be between 40 to 60mph or more.

The rain moves out of our area by early afternoon and the winds will die down leading to a mostly sunny and pleasant Sunday for most.

Another quick moving system clips our area late Monday into Tuesday spreading additional rain showers that could end as some flurries or light snow early Tuesday for higher elevation areas.

The pattern looks to remain rather active with additional cold air arriving Wednesday with yet another chance for some light snow or flurries across the region.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy, breezy and mild with rain showers developing late (80% coverage). Low: 46°.

Saturday: Rain (possibly as few rumbles) and gusty winds likely through midday (100% coverage), then variably cloudy through the afternoon. High: 58°.

Sunday: Mostly sunny. High: 52°.
