KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Dig out the umbrellas today as rain showers will slowly overspread the area from west to east. Temperatures will slowly fall through the 40s across the Plateau and S.E. Kentucky during the afternoon, while the Mountains and Valley will see low-mid 50s, because the colder air will be slower to push eastward behind a slow moving cold front.

Rain showers will be more likely overnight Sunday into Monday morning with nearly 100% coverage and some of this could be locally heavy with some isolated flooding possible in some spots.

Colder air will continue to filter in as well, meaning portions of the Plateau and S.E. Kentucky could see a rain to freezing rain transition late Sunday night into early Monday. There "could" be some isolated travel concerns early Monday morning in these areas, so we will continue to monitor how this system develops.

Confidence is still rather high that the majority of the Central and Southern Valley, Foothills and even the Mountains will see an ALL rain event. Please stay with the WATE 6 Storm Team for further updates through the day.
