Weather Blog

Weather AWARE has ended as visibility as improved this morning. A few showers and storms will be around this afternoon with warm highs near 80 degrees.

  • Sunday(20%) rain/storm chance late. High: 80°. Partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies. 
  • Monday: (40%) chance for showers and a few storms. Monitoring the late afternoon/evening for coverage of rain. Mostly cloudy. Mild. High: 80°. 

Cloud cover will linger today with only a few breaks of sun. There is a 20% chance for a few showers and an isolated thunderstorm this afternoon/evening. Brief heavy rain in an isolated storm will be possible. Sunday’s high is 80 degrees. 

Overnight a few showers will develop, potentially lingering into Monday morning. Mostly cloudy skies continue overnight with lows in the low to mid 60s. Rain chances will increase slightly for Monday with a few showers possible early Monday morning. 

I am closely monitoring Monday late afternoon/evening/overnight for coverage of rain. A cold front will be approaching East Tennessee and we may need to go Weather AWARE. Rainfall totals could be locally heavy with gusty winds possible in a few storms late Monday. We may need to go Weather AWARE on Tuesday as well, for at least part of the day. Tuesday’s rain chance is at 60% with a much cooler high of only 63 degrees! 

A few showers may linger into the start of Wednesday morning (mainly over the Smokies) before clouds diminish for the afternoon. It will continue to be cool through the start of next weekend. Highs stay consistent in the mid to upper 60s with overnight lows in the upper 40s and low 50s. 
At this point, there is only a 20% chance for a stray shower or two Wednesday and Thursday.

Another cold front will push through late Thursday, leaving highs on Friday cool again in the low to mid 60s! This front doesn’t look to have much moisture associated with it. 

Meanwhile, the tropics are still quiet and are anticipated to stay quiet for the next 5 days. 

It is also a great time to make sure to download our FREE weather app by searching “Knoxville Weather” in Apple iTunes or the Google Play store. That way you can get alerts while sleeping (make sure your phone/tablet isn’t on silent though) if any are issued. Plus, we stream our newscasts and severe weather coverage through this app as well, so we can be seen if your power does goes out.
