Clearing and cooler tonight with an almost fall-like feel

  • Tonight: Clearing and cooler tonight. Low: 58° (Record low: 57° in 1947)
  • Wednesday: Tons of sun and low humidity. High: 81°.
  • Thursday: Still sunny and pleasant. High: 83°.

The soaking rains have moved out and we will all get a chance to dry out for several days as no more rain is anticipated through the rest of the week.

Clouds will thin out tonight and we will have an almost fall-like feel as low fall off into the mid to upper 50s. Knoxville’s record low for Wednesday morning is 57° set back in 1947, so it is within reach. But record low or not, the break from the high heat and humidity will be nice, because this is not the beginning of fall. We have the rest of July, August and and at least half of September to go where we can see some high heat and humidity levels.

There will be plenty of sunshine around for Wednesday and the northeasterly winds will keep it quite comfortable. Highs will top out in the upper 70s to lower 80s for most, which is about 10° below average for this time of year.

The comfortable conditions, or lower humidity levels, will remain the rest of the week allowing for morning lows to dip into the low to mid 60s right into the weekend.

Daytime highs will remain close to or just below average as well from Friday into the weekend with a mix of sun and clouds each day.

We are not expecting any rain the rest of the week and even the weekend looks mainly dry for now.

Rain opportunities will creep back up early next week with some spotty P.M. storms chances Monday over the Mountains and just a few more pop-up storms anticipated by Tuesday of next week. This will give us ample time to dry out, clean up, do yard work and just enjoy some outdoor time.
