Our weather pattern will become more unsettled through the upcoming week.

  • Tonight: Quiet with just a few clouds around. Low: 62°.
  • Sunday (AWARE): Variably cloudy with spotty showers/storms around the first part of the day, but increasing in coverage later in the day/evening (60%). High: 83°.
  • Sunday Night (AWARE): Some lingering showers/storms around (70%). Some could produce some damaging winds and locally heavy rainfall. Low: 66°.
  • Monday: A few lingering rain showers early (30%), then decreasing clouds/drier through the afternoon. High: 78°.

After a quiet Saturday, that pattern will continue through the overnight hours as w will have just a few clouds around overnight with lows in the lower 60s.

Our weather pattern will become more unsettled through the day Sunday and remain that way through the upcoming week as a series of storms systems will move through the region.

There will be a few spotty showers/storms possible for the first half of the day as a warm front lifts northeastward into Virginia, but the bigger concern will be a cold front that will sweep through the region later in the evening through overnight hours. Some of the storms produced with this cold front could produce some damaging winds and contain locally heavy rainfall that could lead to some areas of flooding. It is for this reason that we will be Weather AWARE. Please make sure you have multiple ways to get alerts in case any are issued for your area.

The threat for severe weather will decrease overnight Sunday into Monday morning, but there could still be a threat for some locally heavy rainfall in spots that could cause some areas of flooding.

Rain chances look to linger briefly Monday morning, especially for areas east of Knoxville towards the Mountains, but drier air will slowly move back in from the west during the day. Due to the lingering morning rain showers and clouds, it will remain on the cooler side with highs only in the upper 70s.

Tuesday looks to be the best day of the week for outdoor plans as morning lows will be quite comfortable in the middle 50s and daytime highs in the upper 70s to near 80° under a mostly sunny sky and lower humidity values.

The break in the unsettled weather pattern will be a brief one as additional scattered showers and storms will re-develop across the region Wednesday. This will also help keep temperatures a little cooler with most only reaching the upper 70s.

The chances for scattered showers will continue into Thursday as well as a stalled front remains just to our south. Afternoon temperatures will top out in the lower 80s and rain coverage will be just about anywhere. The more likely timing for these scattered storms will be during the afternoon/evening hours.

The threat for additional spotty storms continues into Friday as well as we wait for a cold front to sweep southeastward out of Kentucky later Friday into Friday night.

For now, it looks as though this front could still produce some lingering showers early Saturday before clouds thin out and drier air moves in later in the afternoon hours.
