KNOXVILLE (WATE) - We will see some early sunshine followed by an increase in the afternoon/evening clouds as a strong storm system moves out of the Gulf of Mexico along the Texas/Louisiana coast.
 
Highs should still climb into the mid-upper 60s for most areas before the clouds thicken up from southwest to northeast across the region.
 
Showers will become likely overnight into Monday with nearly 100% coverage and the early part of the day being the most likely time frame to see the rain/rumbles.
 
Strong winds for higher elevation areas above 2,500ft in the Foothills and Mountains could be a problem Monday as gusts could reach 60mph+ at times. This could potentially cause tree and power line damage in some areas.
 
This system exits the region late Monday, but the upper level portion of the storm could still produce a few stray showers on Tuesday. We will dry out from mid-week on and we will also see a steady warm up Thursday into next weekend.
 
Today: Warmer with a mix of sunshine and increasing late day clouds. High: 69°.
 
Tonight: Rain develops (70% coverage). Low: 52°
 
Monday: Rain and rumbles likely (90% coverage) with strong winds across higher elevation areas. High: 67°.
