Clouds continue to linger over East Tennessee this afternoon. They will gradually dissipate this evening leaving us with partly cloudy skies. If you have plans to head to a Friday Night football game, grab the jacket! Temperatures will tumble into the mid 50s during the game. 

Dense patchy fog will be possible in spots early Saturday morning. It is a cool start with morning lows in the mid 40s for the Valley. Despite the chilly morning, Saturday will be pleasant with highs near 70 degrees and partly sunny skies. 

We are even warmer for Sunday with a high of 78 degrees in Knoxville. Clouds may be a little more abundant Sunday and there is a slim chance for a few stray showers for Southeast Kentucky and the N. Valley. 

By Monday, another front starts to approach East Tennessee. Models right now have some showers early Monday with better coverage of rain and storms for the afternoon. We will continue to monitor this forecast as a few strong to severe thunderstorms may be possible. Monday’s high is cooler at 73 degrees. 

Tuesday is drier with only a slim shower chance and partly cloudy skies. Another front and an associated low pressure system will impact our forecast area for Wednesday. Wednesday afternoon and especially Wednesday night look to be our best chance for rain and storms. Rain may be locally heavy at times. We will continue to monitor this in case AWARE status is needed. 

Showers linger into Thursday with cooler highs in the mid 60s. There is a slim shower chance Friday as well. 

This 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.
