Scattered showers possible for the Vols opener

KNOXVILLE (WATE) - The 6 Storm Team expects the unsettled weather pattern will continue again Sunday under a warm and humid air mass.

We will see a variably cloudy sky Sunday which will help temperatures rise into the mid-upper 80s through the afternoon hours and it will be quite sticky as well.

As an upper level disturbance rotates through late Sunday, it will help develop scattered showers and storms across about 60 percent of the area.

These will push eastward through the afternoon and evening hours and could produce some locally heavy rainfall for some.

There are Flash Flood Watches posted for portions of the Plateau up into Kentucky as these areas will be most vulnerable to flooding through the day.

It also still looks like we could see a threat for scattered showers/storms leading up to and during the early portions of the Vols home opener Sunday night, so make sure to take the poncho.

The rain/storm threat looks lower for Labor Day, but it will stay hot and humid with most reaching the lower 90s. We will stay steamy through the rest of the week, but we will also see the threat for scattered afternoon storms return as well.

Today: Variably cloudy with 60% coverage of showers/storms, especially P.M.. High: 87°.
Tonight: 60% coverage of showers/storms through the evening hours, then partly cloudy and muggy overnight. Low: 70°
Labor Day: Partly cloudy, hot and humid with only 20% coverage of P.M. storms. High: 91°
