KNOXVILLE (WATE) - It appears as though most everyone's "Cabin Fever" will break today as we will see mild temperatures in the mid-upper 50s along with a mix of sun and clouds. Get out and enjoy it if you can.

Clouds will slowly roll in overnight and temperatures will remain well above freezing across the region.

A cold front will slide across the area on Sunday spreading rain showers from west to east through the day.Temperatures will still remain mild though, with most on the upper 40s-lower 50s.

Rain showers remain likely overnight Sunday into Monday morning as colder air starts to filter in. This means portions of the Plateau and S.E. Kentucky could see a rain to wintry mix to snow transition late Sunday Night into early Monday.

There "could" be some travel concerns with this system across those areas, so we will continue to monitor how this system develops over the nest 24-36 hours.

At this point, it appears as though the majority of the Valley, Foothills and even the Mountains will see mainly a rain event, but if the cold air moves any further southeast, that would of course change the forecast, so please stay with the WATE 6 Storm Team for further updates over the weekend.

Today: Mild with a mix of sun and clouds. High: 55°

Tonight: Clouds build, but not as cold. Low: 40°

Sunday: Mostly cloudy with rain showers developing (especially in the afternoon) (60% coverage). High: 50°.

Sunday Night: Rain more likely (80% coverage), but a wintry mix is possible across portions of the Plateau and S.E. Kentucky. Low: 35°.

Monday: Rain (wintry mix or snow for areas north and west) tapers off early (60% coverage), but clouds and cooler temperatures linger. High: 42°
